Back Up...20 Answers

My title today has dual meanings:

  • My Inspired guest poster for today had a rough week, and this is the backup plan. 
  • I often feel like I haven't fully introduced myself on my blog, and I should go back and do a little intro.

Therefore, I'm going to tell you a little bit more about myself in list format (this feels weird, but I know I really enjoy it when other bloggers share facts about themselves, so here goes):
  1. I live in Ohio, but I'm originally from Alabama. I've also lived in Texas and South Carolina. I love where I am now!
  2. Before this year, my job was teaching ESL to South Korean students online for 5 years. (that means, I'm pale)
  3. I don't remember when I was converted to Christianity. It feels like I've been a Christian all my life.
  4. Lord of the Rings was my teenage obsession. (that means, I'm a nerd)
  5. The farthest away from home I've been is Europe: Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Luxembourg
  6. I'd love to go back!
  7. Good books are as chocolate to me. I love chocolate.
  8. I don't drink coffee regularly, it gives me heart palpitation things. 
  9. I drink black tea instead.
  10. I share my parents' basement apartment with my older and only sister. 
  11. Warm weather is the best kind. I get really restless in long winters. 
  12. I watch the Rocky movies when I get sick. Getting strong now!
  13. My jewelry business is my pride. I never imagined it would be so satisfying to create something out of nothing like this. It holds me accountable in a lot of ways. I'm very thankful!
  14. There are few music genres I don't appreciate. My favorites are soft rock, pop, folk rock, alternative, rock, classical, country, jazz, bluegrass and stuff from musicals.
  15. I'm single cause the Lord hasn't brought the right man around yet. I often feel like just yelling, "Get here, already!!!" (that means, I'm impatient)
  16. My first concert was James Taylor in Albuquerque in 2000.
  17. If I weren't living in Ohio, I'd love to live in California.
  18. I have a bachelor's in English.
  19. Gene Kelly is my favorite. 
  20. One of my favorite vacation spots is Montreat, North Carolina.
Thanks for reading! Tune in next Wednesday for the rest of the Inspired to be Authentic series! :)


  1. I loved this list! I know what you mean about being uncomfortable about writing lists about yourself, but it is true: we all like reading them. I feel like I know you just a little bit better now. I have alwaaaays wanted to see James Taylor in concert. I have loved him since I saw him play on Sesame Street when I was a little girl.

    1. Thanks, Jenny! My goal was to try to use the word "I" as little as possible. :) It was such a long time ago, but I remember really enjoying James Taylor live. That's so cute! I listened to him when I was little, too, but I must have missed him on Sesame Street!
