10 Things You May Or May Not Know About The Writer Of This Blog- ME!

10 things you may or may not know about me
10.) I am obsessed with Pandas. I own 4 Panda hats, a full panda wardrobe including mittens, slippers, pants, and more, 3-D Panda cookie cutters, Panda glasses, and go by the nickname 'Panda' to friends and family. When I was a little girl I was obsessed with dolphins, circa 90's Flipper. Shortly before I met Jay I acquired a Panda Pillow Pet and the obsession began; ironically enough Jay has his own Black and White obsession, penguins.

9.) When my parents moved from the condo into our first 'house' I had frequent and vivid dreams of a glowing light coming through the vent in my bedroom. For a solid year I was convinced I was being visited by aliens on a regular basis. I no longer believe this to be true, but you also won't see me looking in any vents at night either.

8.) In the 3rd grade I was featured in the local paper within an article about 'bullies'. Sadly, I was the 'bully' in this text- something I do not recall in the slightest, but Momma was happy to send in an email late last year. I suppose parents really do keep 'everything'!
7.) My best friend from high school, whom I have known for 13 years now, lives just 4 miles away from my home. Unfortunately, I see her once a year if I'm lucky. I run into my old principal more often at the super market! When we were teenagers we would often communicate in animals. We would say nothing but animal names in front of my parents, just to really mess with them. It drove my father nuts.

6.) I graduated high school at the early age of 16 with an honorable dream in my heart of becoming a Video Game Arts and Design major. I promptly completed one year of schooling and dropped out. I'd decided that, while I loved creating, I didn't like being told what to create very much. I had a perfect attendance and grade standing. I often desire to go back to school simply to learn and grow more, with no specified direction of focus.

5.) When I was 2 I loved peas. Momma has told this to nearly any male I have ever brought before her. This sentiment is promptly followed by an explanation that I loved them 'so much' because I apparently did not chew them, as they came out quite in tact on the other end. Try looking your date in the eyes after that!

4.) The strangest food I have ever eaten was Shark Fin soup. I was a teenager and the Chinese mother next door had spent days simmering the broth from scratch. I quickly learned that this delicacy has a base composed of hundreds of dried shark fin dorsal needles that easily also make this the most interesting dish I have ever tried, texturally.
Color Run Redhead
3.) My hair has been every color of the rainbow, and some shades together, all at once. When I was 13 I first dyed my hair blonde, then hot pink, with Momma's approval. Since then I have only seen my natural color in roots. I speculate it is close to an auburn hue, though I was bright blonde for the first 4 years of my life.

2.) I have 7 tattoos, the first of which inked at 18, and a full back piece of angel wings that were hand drawn by the artist, on my back, directly before inking. It took 6 straight hours, on a stool topless, in a tattoo parlor, with no pauses or breaks. My back piece, at age 18, the day after completion, is actually for sale in photograph form on a fine arts website.

1.) I was born just minutes before Momma's birthday, in New York. Her obstetrician was, at the time, in the same hospital giving birth to twins. Momma's only concern in that moment was that she did not have to share birthdays with me. I have since, shared my birthday with 2 others in my family, and 3 friends. Thanks Momma!


  1. So you are full of surprises - which somehow doesn't surprise me.

  2. I have no tattoos. I always wonder what they will deteriorate into when your older.

  3. I love when bloggers I follow and admire share more about themselves. That sounds like some amazing art you have on your back. I love pandas too. In fact, our dog is named panda.

  4. Such a fun post. I loved reading about you! Laughing about the peas thing because it sounds like something I would gush to my daughter's date about.....need to curb that before she starts dating.

  5. I love that you have the inkage, I'm actually planning on getting wings done on my back to under my butt cheeks and a tail from my tail bone to my ankle. The way you love pandas is the same way i love penguins. And I'd love to see your back piece

  6. Learned several new things about you. Didn't know about tatoos!

  7. Very interesting! It's always fun to read about a person behind a blog. I've dyed my hair several shades and hues too. It's been a while since I've done anything too drastic though. My niece has angel wings spanning her back too.
