An Assortment of Rather Dull Things You Didn’t Want to Know About Me

And might have already known.

#1 - I only participate in trends when I can be late to them.

(Please do not write these facts down in a notebook and sprinkle it with blood then show up at my apartment 10 years later muttering strange incantations. Thank you.)

#2 — Sometimes I worry I might be allergic to otters.

#3 — I really want to be part of a secret society.

#4 — My toenails grow super fast and are wedge-shaped.

#5 — I am both terrified of conflict and highly opinionated.

#6 — Did you know you can cook quinoa in a rice cooker?

#7 — This week is #seaotterawarenessweek.

#8 — I spent most of my school years hating math and believing I was terrible at it, then I got the exact same score on the verbal and math portions of my SATs.

#9 — I’m synesthetic.

I also have spacial references as to how I visualize the days of the week and other bizarre stuff.

Kind of (but not exactly) like this:

I thought this was normal, but apparently it’s not. At least it’s kinda interesting. To me. And maybe no one else.

#10 — My secret dream is to play Sally Bowles in Cabaret.

#11 — I’d also like to work on a project with The Muppets.

#12 — How many items was I supposed to do for this entry?

#13 — I guess I could look it up.

I’m not going to tag anyone, because I assume everyone else in the universe has already done this, or, if they haven’t, it’s because they don’t want to. If that isn’t the case for you, then go ahead and write one and I’ll clap for it and pretend I tagged you. Agreed? Agreed.
