random facts about me:
1. i'm a leftie! {one reason i love being a leftie? i always have at least one default thing to say for posts like these.}
2. i terrified of escalators. i'll take the stairs any day! seriously--if i have to get on one, my heart starts racing and i have to have a lot of space between me and any other people.
3. i've had glasses since 2008, but i never, ever wear them. and i don't wear contacts or anything either. i just plain don't wear them.
4. i've never had a "real" pet. all i've ever had is a fish, but i don't think that counts.
5. i hate every single condiment. ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise {even the word for that one..ick}, you name it...gag me.
6.i never call my sister, rachel, by her real name. i have a million & one nicknames for her {i make them up as a i go}, but calling her by her actual name kind of feels unnatural!
7. i've been best friends with my bff, sabrina, since kindergarten.
8. when i get married someday, i want that cake shoved in my face. none of this nicely feeding each other stuff! everyone thinks i'm crazy, and maybe i am, but i'm still doing it.
9. i love the look of all lowercase letters. but you probably knew that...
10. i can never paint my nails without adding a top coat of sparkles. never!

invisibilty! or the power to freeze things, a la piper from charmed. it's a tie.

10. If you could have any job other than what you are currently doing, what would it be?
well, i'm going to school to become an interior designer, but my other dream job would be either to own my own bakery {and/or vegan restaurant!} or to be a personal trainer!
