10 Things About Me

I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a couple of weeks now, and I’m kind of liking it.  This is different from my last foray into blogging – in a good way, I think – and I’m hoping that this is the iteration that sticks.  

So, if we’re going to be in this together for the foreseeable future, I thought maybe it’d be nice to get to know each other a little better.  My About Me gives a pretty good, broad stroke version of who I am, so in lieu of writing another summary or mini-bio (which, despite years of practice, I have never actually gotten good at), I thought maybe just ten random facts about me.

I’d love to learn about you too!  If anything I write resonates with you, or if there are just things you’d like to share, please do so in the comments below.  

  1. My husband and I met on a dating site (OKCupid) ten years ago, but didn’t actually start dating until six months later.
  2. I identify along the LGBTQ+ spectrum.  Probably the best descriptors would be bisexual and genderqueer.
  3. I got the worst hangover of my life at a Harry Potter convention.
  4. I have emotional dysregulation issues, and have for as long as I can remember.  As I’ve gotten older, the outward expressions of this dysregulation have leveled off, but the level of emotional distress I feel has not.
  5. I’m addicted to shopping haul videos, especially Dollar Tree.
  6. I’ve got high blood pressure and tachycardia, so I’m trying to develop a health and fitness routine (which I might blog about…?)
  7. If I could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be egg rolls or hash browns.  I’m an adventurous eater, but those are my comfort foods.
  8. I am active in fan and fandom culture, and I attend conventions whenever possible.  The only one I am basically guaranteed to make it to every year is Arisia, but I get to others when I can.
  9. We ultimately decided to only have one kid, but we picked out names for four.  The ones that didn’t make it were Corwin James, Amelia Rose, and Cadence Grace.
  10. Barring the big existential fears like loneliness and death, the things I’m most afraid of are butterflies and moths, heights, and dentists.
