Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Facts About Me

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
To take part, just pick your top ten, and add the link here.
DISCLAIMER: I am a very boring person. lol

1. I grew up in a super small tourist town. It's Bavarian-themed, I consider the town a black hole, a lot of older people move there to die because it's a quiet town and the most dangerous thing to ever happen there, is Mountain lions or a black bear might show up in someone's back yard. 

2. I have three brothers, one older and two younger. My younger brothers are 12 and 16 years younger than I am, my older brother is about 2 years older.

3. I only started "seriously" reading in the past 3 years. Before that I almost never did. Thank you book community for introducing me to so many great books, and thank you free book section in Ebook stores for providing me with a decent number of lesser known books that have become some of my favorites.

4. I hate sweets. I will take a bowl of pretzels over a slice of cake any day. When I do eat what is a lot of sugary snacks, I have to eat something salty to get the after taste of sugar out of my mouth.

5. On Pottermore, I was sorted into Ravenclaw and Wampus. While I am thrilled to be sorted into Ravenclaw, I think deep down I am more of a Hufflepuff.

6. I am very clumsy. 99.99% of all my injuries are accidentally self-inflicted. I once sprained my big toe walking up a flight of 3 stairs. (my sandal fell off) There is a long list of injuries, it would take too long to list them all.

7. I can't draw to save my life. I honest to god have the drawing skills of a  toddler, possibly a blind toddler. My stick figures look like crap.

8. I am a quarter American Indian. I have an Indian card and everything. The picture is from when I was in 2nd grade, but you can still tell it's me. The rest of me is a combination of Irish, French, and Dutch. Because of this, I rarely sunburn but since I never wear shorts my legs are so pale they are a little translucent.

9. I spent a month in Romania back in 2006. I didn't have a very good Digital Camera at the time so I don't have as many pictures as I would like. But the ones I do have are mostly of what I ate day to day. I will share what I had for Breakfast every day and this is why I refused to eat raw tomatoes for 5 years. It was for a missionary trip so the food was provided for us.
Ate this every day for breakfast
10. I am legally blind in my right eye. There is a long and kind of boring story that goes along with why and a lot of has to do with my medical history that I don't really feel like talking about. But it might be a factor in why so many of my injuries involve falling up or down stairs. Poor depth perception.


  1. My brain immediately jumped to New Braunfels after reading your first fact, though I don't know if it is necessarily considered Bavarian-themed :p But Schlitterbahn is definitely that :p

    My TTT.

  2. I'm a new follower :)

    I was a Slytherin on pottermore and I totally think that this is okay... :D I speak a little romanian (very little) and i would say that food looks rău.

    Here's my top ten :)
    And here is my blogoversary giveaway as well! Help me celebrate six years!

  3. I can't draw either! I wish I could :)

  4. I am pretty accident prone too! I also cannot draw for anything and I was sorted into Slytherin!

  5. Awww, I was sorted in Hufflepuff. Maybe I need to go back and see which American house I'll end up in.

    1. I don't think it's a bad thing to be a Hufflepuff. :)
