  1. I cannot relax in my room if my closet doors are open.
  2. At any given time, you can find at least 4 candles on my dresser.
  3. I work with kids and I absolutely love it. To me, there isn't anything better.
  4. I don't really enjoy hot drinks. I'll order an iced drink from Starbucks whether it's 15 degrees or 100 degrees.
  5. I wish we could keep Christmas decorations up all year round.
  6. I've only traveled overseas once - to Israel, and I'm dying to go back, as well as travel other places. My passport is nearly empty!
  7. I loathe romantic comedies. The only movies that even slightly peak my interest are psychological thrillers. (Except for The Greatest Showman. My. Lord.) 
  8. I find the human brain to be so interesting. If I could have any job in the world, it would be to work at the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. (Hellooooo, Spencer Reid...) 
  9. I struggle with anxiety. I wrote an entire post about it here on NIMD. 
  10. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons.
  11. I am a certified FRIENDS addict. I've seen every episode countless times ("I KNOW!"), though I'm positive I'm not the only one who can say this.

  13. I am an INFP and a melancholy-phlegmatic. 
  14. I was born in July but really wish I could have been born in November. It's my favorite month.
  15. I like to think that God made the ocean just for me. It's my most favorite thing He created.
  16. I'm in love with words. I think writing is such a beautiful thing. I have a board on Pinterest dedicated just to quotes, and I think it's my board with the most pins.
  17. Which is probably why Words of Affirmation is like my top love language. ha.
  18. I studied music for a year in college and decided that I'm okay with not knowing music theory or the circle of fifths...so I switched to Bible & Theology as my major.
  19. I can't eat leftover chicken if it's been microwaved. It has such a nasty, weird, non-chicken flavor. If you're like this, you get it. If not, I can't possibly explain what I mean.
  20. I got an Amazon Echo for Christmas. I literally only use it to play thunderstorm sounds while I'm sleeping. What a shame.
  21. I did awful in high school, mostly because I was bored and because I didn't "apply myself". (Sorry, mom and dad.)

  23. I want to adopt when I get married.
  24. I work with special needs children at the school I teach at, and it has blessed my life immensely. I love the way those children see the world. 
  25. I would love to one day become a counselor for women who have been raped, molested, and abused. I want to help people find healing from their brokenness. 
  26. When people ask to FaceTime me, I feel physically ill. Just text me. Like if I FaceTime you or actually want to, I really love you.
  27. That goes for when people text me to call them also. They invented voice messaging for a reason, people.

  31. I wish I had a permanently raspy voice. 
  32. I love canoeing. 
  33. Seeing people walk on the side of the road at night is honestly one of the only things that really terrifies me.
  34. I took journalism, yearbook, and newspaper in high school for like three years in a row. Mostly just because I had the best teacher ever. 
  35. The first time I skipped school was my junior year of high school with my best friend Gabby. We got caught.
  36. I never open my blinds in my room. I like it dark at all times. I really don't know why.
  37. I, just like everyone else, have pretty deep insecurities, but I'm working everyday on overcoming them. 
  38. I'm super sensitive. I need ta CHILL, Y'ALL.

  43. I'm obsessed with Jewish culture. I think there's nothing more fascinating. 
  44. On any given day, you will hear the phrase "I am level 12 annoyed" come out of my mouth at least twice. Am I actually level 12 annoyed? No. Am I actually level 12 dramatic? OH YES, GIRL.
