10 Random Facts About Me

I saw this circulating around the Internet and I liked the idea so much that I wanted to tag myself, but now the Internet Gods have heard my prayers and I don’t need to. I’ve been tagged by Avery Marsh! Thank you, Avery.

EDIT: I was also tagged by Kate Swenson! This post will count for that, too. ❤ Thank you, lovely ladies!

Needless to say, this deserves a happy dance.

So, in no particular order, here are 10 random facts about me:

  • Root bear and peanut butter are their own food group. This is not a fact about me, this is just a fact.
  • I’m a gamer. I count Harvest Moon, Sims 3, Phoenix Wright, and Dragon Age among my many gaming obsessions.
  • I’m an asthmatic short person who was born with a club foot (fixed through serial casting, although I still have some chronic pain). Athletics was never in the cards.
  • My highest WPM ever was 112. I think this is pretty fast, personally.
  • I’m allergic to cats. This makes me very, very sad.
  • I grew up in Pennsylvania. Cornfields are beautiful to me.
  • I have a learning disability; I also have a lot of thoughts and feelings about learning disability stigma. I went into psychology in order to work with people with learning disabilities.
  • I’m such an avid soda drinker that I’m embarrassed to tell you how much soda I drink per day.
  • I collect glass Coca Cola bottles, the older the better. The oldest have thick glass and an upraised logo. It’s a great, cheap hobby – even the oldest bottles should only run you about 2-3$ (if it’s not a racket – someone tried to sell me 1 for 25$ today!), most antique stores have a few, and they make great windowsill decorations. I imagine crafty people (which I am not) could do a lot with them.

Now it’s my turn to tag some people!

I hereby use my sparkly tagging wand to bequeath 10 random facts onto thee (hopefully none of these people have been tagged before and/or are interested in being tagged):
