Seven Facts About ME:

1. I’m really family oriented, and I spend pretty much all my free time with my family—especially my mom. We all share something that makes our relationship unique. My mom is my best friend. We love to laugh, sing, bake, and exercise together. We’re both shy and we’re both snarky and sarcastic. My dad is serious and stubborn, just like me. I look exactly like him, just with hair. My sister and I look nothing alike, and if you saw us together, you wouldn’t know we were related. However, we both love raunchy comedies and we like to dance and sing (poorly, on my part) to rap music. And then there’s the baby of the family, Lola. She’s a Cavapoo (Cavalier King and Poodle mix) and she’s our little love. She has the same reddish hair as me, which is crazy.

2. My favorite colors in general are purple and black, but my favorite colors to wear are gray, black, white, and/or red. These just seem like really elegant colors, and I like the way they look on me.

3. I’m an anorexia survivor. It’s a long story, but it started during high school and lasted through the middle of college. All of my bones showed, I was obsessed with exercising and burning calories, I was afraid of food, and now, my immune system is shot because of a lack of nutrition. I wore a size zero in a lot of clothes (and considering I’m 5’7’’ with a large ribcage, this was pretty terrible), and even then, the clothes fell off. My family says they feared for my life daily, and it’s because of them that I overcame the disease. I still struggle sometimes, but I’m a lot healthier and happier now. I spent a lot of time not living due to my obsession with not eating. It’s not a good life to live, and unfortunately, I wasted years of my life.

4. I’m currently in the stage of rewriting a contemporary YA novel I wrote last summer. I’m not going to go into much detail right now since it’s being reworked, but let’s just say it’ll be a tearjerker, I think. I’ve enjoyed writing it, even though it can be a pain sometimes. I’m hoping to be a published author one day, and maybe this will be my debut novel. Who knows?

5. I’ve been to Disney World six times since I was sixteen. Here are some pictures, in case you’ve never been.

6. I really hate the following foods and drinks:
-Ranch Dressing
-Dr. Pepper
-Mountain. Dew
-Tea (sweet or any other type)
-Chocolate Milk
-Regular Coke

7. I was a military brat growing up. I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, but only lived there for a year. I lived in Fort Worth, Texas for six years. Then I moved to Memphis, Tennessee, and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve only been to New Orleans twice since I left and Fort Worth once, but I love both of these cities. I went to Mardi Gras my senior year of high school, and it was the most fun vacation I’ve ever been on.

      Thanks so much for the kind words! And Lola is my little love. I hugged her for you! And Disney World is my happy place, haha! My dad was in the military, so we always get really great tickets at discounted prices. And I hope I get my book published, too! Rewrites are a struggle.

    I’m sure it hasn’t been easy to talk about your anorexia and what you went through, so it’s really brave of you to mention it. It’s great to see that you’re happier now! 🙂

    I’d love to read your YA book someday! Best of luck with writing. It can be really difficult, you’re so right. I’m also incredibly jealous that you’ve been to Disney World six times! 🙂
    Thanks for the nomination!

    Thank you for the nomination and congrats on your award! Good luck on your contemporary novel, I hope to see you published one day :). There’s something about Disney World that makes you want to come back? If I could, I would go once a year but the prices keep rising! Incredibly jealous you went there six times! You’re very brave to mention your anorexia and you should be proud of yourself. Cheers to a happier and healthier life!

    Thank you so much! I love Disney World, haha. Apparently, my family does too. I think we just love how it’s like its own world and everything is so happy and wonderful and magical. It’s hard to mention eating disorders, but if I can help someone who also struggles, then it’s worth it!


  5. Anna @MyBookishDream says:

    You are really brave, I’m sure it wasn’t easy to talk about your anorexia and what you went through. I’m really glad you are happier now! ❤

    Wow, you have been to Disney World SIX TIMES?! That's amazing! I have never been there, so it was wonderful seeing all the pictures you posted of it. 😀 Also Lola is the cutest!

    Thanks for nominating me! 🙂

      Thanks so much for the kind words! I’m glad to know someone else has their mom as their best friend. I couldn’t imagine my life without my mom!
      I’d love to go to Australia one day! And anorexia isn’t easy, but if I can help others, then sharing my story is worth it. ❤
