Get To Know Me!

So you say you wanna know more about me? Well today is your lucky day! I've decided now since I've been blogging for almost a year, that I will play a fun little game of 50 facts about me!


Where to begin...

1. I was born and raised in Northern California (hello beautiful redwood forests and beaches!)
2. My birthday is February 6th and I'll be turning 26 this year! I am not ashamed of my age for I feel (sometimes) younger and get mistaken a lot for being around 20 years old. Hey, I'll take it!
3. I'm extremely shy when I'm in a new situation or surrounded by people I don't know, but turn into a major goof ball when I'm comfortable.
4. My one true love is Disneyland! 
5. I've been an annual pass holder for about 5 years now and I wish I could honestly own Disneyland, or even better, live there. Thanks to my parents for spreading their love for Disneyland to me. We would always visit about once a year until we got our passes. Now its like 4 times a year...!
6. When I was younger I wanted to be a Disney Imagineer. You know, those cool people that create the rides?! Someday...
7. I used to be super active my entire childhood. I did gymnastics, soccer, tap and jazz dance, and competitive roller skating. Then in high school I was a cheerleader.
8. My natural hair color is a medium brown. Now its so many different shades of brown, I honestly don't know what color to describe it as!
9. I went to college for a year and decided that it was not for me. As someone who is extremely shy, I hate being in a classroom and would rather do something on my own. I then went on to Cosmetology school and got my license.
10. I worked with my dad for a while as he's a painting contractor, and helped him paint houses. No joke. 
11. I was once really into art. I can't draw that great, but hand me a paint brush and some paint and I could go on for days.
12. I have 2 older brothers.
13. I have 1 niece and 3 nephews.
14. I'd like to think of myself as the cool aunt...
15. I'm REALLY into photography. Also when I was younger, I wanted to be a photographer. I worked with what I had. 6 years ago I purchased my first big girl camera. Although I've outgrown it now, it really did teach me a lot and has helped me get better in my craft.
16. I'm also super into editing. Whether that is video editing (which takes a lot of your time) or photo editing, I love creating something that I see in my head and sharing that with the world.
17. I took a graphics design class and loved working and creating art in Photoshop.
18. Again, my dream career changed and I wanted to be a graphic designer.
19. I taught myself html and coding and was the "it girl" of editing everyone's profile back in those MySpace days. 
20. I watch more YouTube than I watch actual TV.
21. But when I do watch TV, you know it's all about those Housewives and Vanderpump rules! I then switch into my cooking side and always find myself watching Diners, Drive In's and Dives. 
22. I can make some mean homemade popcorn. The best thing you'll ever have. Also corn flake chicken!
23. I've just now realized I'm not even halfway to 50 facts and I find myself thinking of what else to write...
24. O.K back to it!
25. I'm super detail orientated and always find myself putting my all into my work.
26. I hate public speaking.
27. When I'm nervous I start to stutter and if it gets bad, will have a panic attack.
28. I always had a hard time sticking up for myself, which led me to being bullied a lot. Even in my adult years.
29. I used to be extremely allergic to dogs. Thankfully I'm no longer!
30. I enjoy making YouTube videos, but I'm also my toughest critic. That stops me from posting. Also not having enough time has kept me from uploading lately. Someday that will change!
31. I want to travel the world! First destination on my travel wish list: Greece!
32. My first vehicle was a truck. Oh how I miss it.
33. My dream vehicle is a Jeep Wrangler! 
34. My favorite getaways are Yosemite, Lake Tahoe and Disneyland (when its not crowded).
35. My go to outifts are jeans/jeggings, sweaters and vans.
36. My favorite types of food are sushi, enchiladas, tacos, donuts, popcorn and mashed potatoes. You know, that healthy stuff...😆
37. My favorite color is purple.
38. I love baseball, football, basketball, super cross and dirt track racing.
39. I'm big into video games. We own the original ORIGINAL Nitendo. Nitendo 64. Nitendo GameCub. The original PlayStation. PlayStation 2. The Wii. I had an Xbox 360 and the ORIGINAL gameboy, gameboy color, and gameboy advance color...oh my!
40. My favorite video game of all time is SSX Tricky and Zelda.
41. Zelda is HUGE in my family and we can watch my dad play this literally all day long. 
42. My current favorite video games are Grand Theft Auto 5 (Franklin is my fav) and Halo. Master Chief is and always will be my homeboy.
43. I'm currently patiently waiting for March 3rd to arrive. I need that new Nitendo Switch in my life! New Mario Kart and a new Zelda?!? Yes!
44. Even though I'm 25 years old, I still play the Sims. I've owned every single game since the original and will go through moments where its all I ever play. Currently playing The Sims 4 City Life and loving it! Also thankful I have a good graphics card to make this game realistic. The struggle was real back in the day...
45. My favorite type of music is classic rock, hip hop, rap, country and pop. 
46. Current favorite song is Starving by Hailee Steinfield.
47. My all time favorite song is Dear Mama by Tupac.
48. Surprisingly I'm really camera shy. I'm trying to get over my fear of taking photos in front of crowds. Someday...
49. I'm a firm believer of following your dreams. There's so much you can do with your life. 
50. One day I want to be a change in this world. To share my experiences and help others when in need. I truly want to change someones life.

Wow that was a lot to think of! I appreciate you sticking to the end and wanting to know 50(ish) facts about me. I'll come back again to doing something similar in the future. But until then, thank you for all of your support!

Best,
Jessica
