Random Facts About Me And My Hubby

I was updating my About Me page, so I decided to make a separate post about it. All ego in this post.

Random Facts About Me

1. I love [dark] chocolate too much. (And pretty much anything baked).

This is an accurate visual description of myself.

2. I have been a dancer on and off since I was 5. (Ballet, Jazz, Aerial Silks, Flamenco…) If it wasn’t for God’s plans, I would have probably pursued a professional ballet dancing life.

3. I love God and I try to follow His wish. I am not religious.

4. I have always looked younger than my actual age.

5. My favorite thing to do (besides dancing and eating chocolate) is to travel. I have been to 20 countries so far and I constantly daydream about traveling.

6. My favorite country is Italy.

7. I really love the arts. I did oil painting for about 8 years, took an analogue photography course, and studied filmmaking in college.

9. I love films by Woody Allen and Wes Anderson, and anything with Will Ferrel in it. My favorite trilogy is Toy Story.

10. I love classical music. And classic rock too.

11. At the top of my invisible to-do list is going skydiving. And I love roller-coasters and skiing.


12. In contrast to the above sentence, I also love my alone or quiet time and silence is not awkward for me.

13. I am a tea drinker (not coffee drinker). Depending on the occasion, I’ll also take a cold amber beer, a bottle of hard cider, a glass of sangria, a glass of rosé, or a gin & tonic.

14. When I was little I wanted to be a rockstar with 12 songs in my album, as well as a hotel manager. (I don’t even know).

15. I am NOT a morning person.

16. I love food. (Dessert, Italian, Mexican, and Sushi especially.) I love my metabolism genes, because I should be fat.

17. I hate doing dishes, but I don’t mind doing laundry.

18. When I was about 10, my mom packed me dog food for school lunch as a prank. (She “nicely” also gave me lunch money that day). This may have made me a stronger person.

19. I have won medals in archery, as well as 1st place at a horseback riding race where I had to gallop to one side, hop off the horse, stick my face into a plate full of whipped cream, find the cherry with my mouth, hop back on the horse (with whipped cream all over my face), and ride back.

20. I speak fluent Spanish and English. I understand Italian and French, I read Russian, and I am learning Hindi.

21. I really like sneezing. I hate yawning.


23. I get very excited when I get the answers right when watching Jeopardy.

24. Finally, I never ever imagined I would become a married housewife in my early 20s and then live in a remote area in India. If you want to live an adventure without even trying, follow God.

8. He has pretty blue eyes, and magic massage hands. I wish I could make a Josh clone for massaging purposes only so I don’t have to ask him so much.

9. He seems to have lived many lifetimes in one life.

I guess that sums it up!

Now, to be fair, tell me one or more random facts about yourself.
