Getting To Know Me

There's something that's been bothering me for awhile and I just had no idea how to do it.  Other than my outfits, I feel as if I keep everything else private.  I try not to use my blog as an online journal because I like to stay positive and focused on things that make me happy.  So in an effort to let you in, I'm going to give you five facts that you probably didn't know about me:

Paczki and me in 2011 (I was blonde!)      



1. I'm extremely claustrophobic.  I get crazy anxiety over being in an airplane too long, being at a concert in a big crowd, or even being underwater.  I have no idea why I'm like this, but it actually makes my heart race just writing about it!  While I love going to shows, I never have a general admission ticket.  If possible, I need my own seat.  If not (Fiona Apple for instance), I will enjoy the show all the way in the back to avoid the feeling of being crushed.  If I go to the movies, I always have a seat at the end.  Thankfully there are a few theaters here in LA that have assigned seating so I make sure I'm always on the end.  It's crazy, I know, but I go through these crazy rituals to feel comfortable.

2. I grew up in a Spanish speaking household.  My mother immigrated here from Argentina and my father is a first generation American.  They are both bilingual and when I was young, so was I.  I can understand it completely but I get really shy when I actually have to speak Spanish.  Which comes to my next fact...

3.  I'm terribly shy!  I was really shy as a kid.  I think I came out of my shell at about 14, but went back in about ten years later.  I used to be the life of the party, dance like nobody was watching, and make friends with strangers everyday.  I wish I knew what changed.  Don't get me wrong, I still like to have fun and make friends, it just seems like it's harder for me now.

4. I bruise easier than a ripe banana!  I tend to be clumsy as well so it's a bad combination.  I can't remember the last time my body was bruise free.  My legs and arms seem to bruise the easiest.  I often wonder if people think I'm a cage fighter?

5. I'm allergic to bananas.  Some would find this disappointing but I'm not the biggest fan of fruit to begin with.  I love vegetables but hate most fruit.  My only exception is melon.  I can't resist a cantaloupe!

There you have it!  I hope you feel like you've gotten to know me a little better.  I'd love to hear an interesting fact about you too.  Happy Friday!
