Some things you may not know about me

I’m sure some of you may not know me very well.  That’s okay, things may change and we end knowing each other well.  Some of you may THINK you know me well, but not so much.  Others, everything on this list may not be new to you because you actually do know me.  Either way, enjoy and learn a little about me. 

  • I hate disloyal people. If I call you my friend, trust and believe I’ll go to bat for you. Loose my trust and be disloyal, we are done on all levels.
  • I love a good book, but when I read I notice all the errors like an English teacher.
  • I’m the only one in my family that doesn’t need glasses. Just started using computer glasses, mainly for work.
  • I worked in an elementary school in high school.
  • I Love kids, but don’t want to have one. Thinking of adopting.
  • I was never a huge fan of dogs, until all my friend’s dogs started loving in me all the time.
  • I’m a true introvert through and through. I force myself to be semi social and show some extrovert qualities.  
  • I like going to school.  I could be a professional student if I was getting paid to go to school.  Let me see if that’s a job.  I’m just saying. 
  • I study best with the TV on.  I would have to be something I’ve seen or don’t care about, but I tend to retain information better.  I know, that’s backwards, but I’ve tested it.  My mind wanders if it’s quiet.  
  • I go to sleep with the TV playing a movie or a TV series I’ve already seen.  This gives me time to practice my listening skills as I fall asleep.  Yes, sometimes I’ll hear things and open my eyes and rewind because I never caught that before while watching it.
  • I love tracing my family history when time permits.  Between me and my sister we have made pretty good headway on our family tree, especially on my mom’s side. I may need to pick some elders brains on my dad’s side for a few more details.
  • I can’t watch snakes on TV in any form, EXCEPT, anaconda.  Weird I know.  I also know they are just as real as any other snake.  That’s a discussion for another day.
  • I try to read every day, even if it’s just one chapter.  I’m currently at 396 days straight on my kindle and 120 weeks.  I’ve also read 28 books this year.  My goal was only 25.  I supposed to be taking a break.  Might take a break the second half of the year.  I’ll still read, but will probably be some hard copy books here and there and at least one or two days on my kindle per week to keep my weekly streak alive and start a new goal and challenge in January 2023.
  • I still hand write and mail snail mail letters.  I like doing that because it makes it more personable.  Plus I like to handwrite. 
  • I have a very active imagination.  So when I read I see it all as if I’m watching a movie, but I’m typically reading a book or something very descriptive.  If the author/writer wrote it well I should be able to see the characters and picture their actions as I’m reading. 
  • I’ve NEVER been drunk before.  Tipsy, yes, drunk, no.  My friends have tried many times with many techniques over the years, but I wouldn’t let it happen.
