five things you may not know about me

I feel like being an over sharer today, so I'm going to talk about the one subject upon which I'm an expert, myself. Remember way back in the beginning of blogging when we had Friday Introductions and Friday Five posts? Today I'm throwing it back and doing a Friday Five, Friday Introduction post!

1. I would love to one day write a children's book. Reading was such a huge part of my life growing up and is still one of my favorite pastimes. I attribute this to my mom being a kindergarten teacher and reading to us constantly. It would be the ultimate accomplishment to write the next Amelia Bedelia or Junie B. Jones.

2. I've never broken a bone, but I have dislocated my knee cap. I did it in 5th grade playing soccer and had to sit out the entire season. I refer to it as my career ending injury so people think I was better than I actually was. I've also twisted my ankle a few times, including the time in middle school when I tripped over my backpack.

3. Washington DC is my favorite city and I've always been interested in politics. I interned on Capitol Hill one summer and also had the chance to lobby as part of a PAC in college. For a long time I thought I wanted to work in political communications and being the White House Press Secretary was my dream job. Those are obviously no longer my dreams, but I do think I'll always have an interest in politics.

4. I started college as an elementary education major and really thought I wanted to teach kindergarten. I made the change two days before I was supposed to register for sophomore year classes. Thanks to spending that summer on campus working as a camp counselor and taking classes I was still able to graduate on time. Why journalism? It was my pick because the building was centrally located on campus and full of brand new computer labs.

5. I hate olives. Just the thought of eating one makes me gag. When I was little I ate 3 pieces of Popeyes spicy fried chicken followed by one black olive and threw up. Still to this day I'm convinced it was from the olive and not the overload of chicken.

I'd love to hear a random fact about you!

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
