Fifteen Facts

Just like Amanda, I also love some random facts.
I realize that this is my blog and website, but many of my readers may not know too much about me.

Here we go, 15 random facts about me.

 

 1. I have unhealthy obsession with A1 sauce.  I’ll eat it on nearly everything.

2. I’m a senior in college, majoring in English.  I hope I’ll never have to use my degree.

3. I’ve been to 17 countries; The US (duh), Honduras, Belize, Mexico, Guatemala, England, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, and Scotland.  My dream in life is to travel to a country for every year I’m alive.  I’m 4 countries behind, right now.  Need to catch up. ;)

4. In my junior and senior years of high school, I went to the state speech competition with 2 and 3 events respectively and placed in Humorous Interpretation and Humorous Duet both years.  Part of me thinks I could move to NYC and get an agent and act.

5. I used to thrift almost religiously.  We’re talking 2-4 times a week.  I gathered so much stuff.  Now, I generally limit myself to about once or twice a month.  In fact… I may go today.

6. I will forever love Harry Potter.  I’m currently re-reading the books.  I’m on Prisoner of Azkaban right now.

7. I don’t like coffee.  The exception: Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

8. I’ve seen too many live bands to count.  Some favorite shows: Bon Iver, Band of Horses, Ben Howard, The Civil Wars, Arcade Fire, Manchester Orchestra, Fleet Foxes, The Avett Brothers.

9. I really hope that moving to Austin, TX is in the nearish future for Ethan and me.  We love OKC…but we’re so hyped on Austin.

10. I love to cook.  And to eat.  If I wasn’t so busy all the time, I’d cook every single day, multiple times a day.

11. My favorite movie is Matilda.  I’ve seen it a thousand times, probably.

12. I’m a huge poetry buff.  I love reading it.  I love writing it.  I love studying it.  My favorite poets: Walt Whitman, WS Merwin, Andrea Gibson, and, even though he was a facist and supported Hitler, Ezra Pound.

13. I don’t have a favorite color, because they change with my mood and with seasons.  If people usually ask, I’ll say “yellow.”

14. I drink a LOT of tea; bubble tea, hot tea, chai tea, iced tea, green tea.

15. I’m constantly reminded about how blessed I am, though I don’t give thanks nearly enough.

With love,
Rachel
