25 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

One of my biggest fears of social media is that you lose the personal connection.   I want my wonderful YouMakeYou® community to know exactly who I am and what I stand for, and vice versa.

My story is out there for you to read, but it doesn’t give much insight to who I am on a deeper level today.  So when I found this survey on my great friend and massive blog inspiration, Alison’s, page I knew I HAD to do it, too!

If you have a blog, I challenge you to do it, too. Or, if not, answer a few in the comments below so I can learn something I don’t know about you!

 

25 things you probably didn’t know about me:

  1. I’m happiest when I am laughing until my stomach hurts with my friends.  Or, sitting on a beach… that too.. 
  2. especially if.. there is good  conversation involved.  I am in love with having intellectual conversations, or conversations where I can feel the passion the other person has about what they are talking about.
  3. I’ve always wanted to… hike to the top of a  mountain and have a romantic date with wine and carrot cake.  Is that too much to ask? No?  Good.
  4. My family and I … have an incredibly long lasting joke about the ‘partial pressure of oxygen’, we use it as the reason for everything. 
  5.   I was a terrible … dancer.  One time I froze in the middle of the stage in front of 300+ people and refused to move.  I was also in a tutu that my mom paid wayyyy too much money for, sorry Mom!
  6. My first job was … teaching a soccer camp.  Ball me, Blazer.
  7. I could probably eat Red Bean Sesame Balls every day. I don’t know the real name, but picture this: red bean paste surrounded by dough, fried and coated in sesame seeds. YES.
  8. I wish I could … graduate with 30 minors.  I am so intrigued by everything.  #KnowledgeHungry
  9. I was born on the same day as … Mitchell Musso, and Tom Hanks… which is more interesting, I don’t know, help.
  10. My all-time favorite films are … Blades of Glory and Talladega Nights?  I actually strongly dislike watching movies.
  11. I do a pretty mean… clean and press.  Probably my all time favorite exercise.
  12. I’m still mad … I can’t find a good Netflix series to get into.  Ya finish Friends and The Office and just nothing can stack up, ya know.  Suggestions!?
  13. I met my husband… LOL probably but I’m too independent to notice.
  14. I always knew I wanted … to be my own boss.  I have this massive burning in my heart to do something BIG– warning you now 😉
  15. I’m not afraid … to do my own thing.  I need my me time.  I actually love spending time alone just as much as I love being surrounded by people.
  16. I make the best … dairy free protein pancakes.  Every day, to be exact 😉
  17. I have absolutely no patience for… oblivious-ness.
  18. I always cry when …  I think about my past for a long time.
  19. I’m obsessed with coffee.  And scones.  Both. A Lot.  Yum.
  20. I spent 2 years … with a non-stop migraine.
  21. I wish… I was allowed to play ice hockey again, I miss being on the ice more than anything in the world.
  22. At age 5, I was deeply in love with… my babysitter.  I don’t even remember his name now but I’m pretty sure he was super cool.
  23. I believe if people…took the time to be present in every moment the world a better place.  I think our world today is so fast-moving and demanding that we lose the beauty of our present existence.
  24. I can’t stand… touching velvet, it goes right through me.   Just thinking about it makes me cringe.
  25. Whenever The Ellen Show is on, I watch because let’s be real, she is friggen amazing,  and a lifelong dream of mine is to make it on her show one day.colby on ellen

I make the best…

I wish I could…

I’m happiest when….

 

ALWAYS REMEMBER: YOU MAKE YOU!

      I think I love all of those things, our answers are too similar 😀 I have always wanted to make my own hummus, I feel like the flavor options are endless, what is your favorite to make? And actually, my mom makes the best PB fudge, it’s such a treat!!

    Alright so we need a nice man from Cornell to wife you up and take you to the top of a mountain in Ithaca. I can be there to provide the carrot cake (from Lloyd’s of course) and take the cute pics for Insta. 😉
    ALSO we definitely need to hang out more, because I LOOOOOVE deep chats and really meaningful conversations. So much. I live for that.
    Still don’t know the real name for Red Bean Sesame Balls, but I think that term is pretty spot on.
    Cannot wait to see you on Ellen one day. You have the potential to be!!!

      I think that sounds perfect… I look forward to your delivery of the carrot cake 😛 Hopefully you don’t have to walk 10 miles for it again, but now that I think about it we should TOTALLY do that again, the deep meaningful conversations would thrive:D && yes we need to hangout more, maybe I’ll just uproot to Boston, I do love it there hehe <33333
