In attempting to be more open about myself and in this blog, I’ve decided to come up with 10 Things you need to know about me.
One: I have a Cat
Merlin is the name of my Pet master. He runs the household and I do his bidding. Any of you who have ever owned a pet will know that this is true. Although, when you see this face, it’s hard not to bend to his will.
Two: I love most things Japanese
About ten years ago, I studied abroad in Japan. Since them, I’ve developed a love of the Japanese culture. From Traditional Japanese culture to Anime I like it all. I’ve been in the process of learning the language. It’s been slow going, but not impossible.
Three: Cooking is a Passion
I love cooking. I really do. The problem is that I’m single and when I cook, primarily bake, it makes more than I can eat. That is unless I want to grow wider. Which I don’t. So there might not be many recipes that get posted, but I will definitely put the few up there that I do enjoy.
Four: Reading is my life
A few years ago I stumbled upon Goodreads. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s basically a small community for people to showcase, or show off, what books they are reading. The one factor that I really like about it is the reading challenges they place into motion each year. They ask people to write down their literary goal for the year.
Mine is 53 books.
Another great aspect is that it allows you to review your books an rate them out of 5 stars.
Five: I love Movies
So I watch about 4-6 movies a week. Considering I have little time to do anything else. I used to go more often, however I am making a priority to try to watch more movies in theaters and I’ll try to review a few of them as I go.
Six: I’m a Teacher
I’m a teacher. I work at a high school. I will more likely than not post at least one or two posts about being a teacher.
Seven: I’m into Arts & Crafts
I’m a huge fan of Arts and Crafts. I will write about some of my projects and let you know how they all turn out. I have a Pinterest account where I get most, if not all, of my ideas. Some work out. Some don’t. I’ll be letting ya’ll know about them as I progress.
Eight: I’m a Tea Snob
I hate coffee! Sorry if that offends you, but I do. I love Tea though. I’m very peculiar about it. I prefer loose leaf to bag, but bag is better than nothing. I’ve been experimenting with different leaves to produce different flavors.
Also, those of you who drink your tea with the tea bag still in it, that has to be one of the grossest things I’ve ever heard. That’s just disgusting!
Nine: I’m in debt
Not going to lie here. I’m in debt. My goal is to shrink it all by the end of the year. I will be posting over some of the different ways I try to decrease my debt using a number of side hustles and what worked and what didn’t.
Ten: I’m a in declutter-mode
So like most of the world, I watched Tidying up with Marie Kondo. I had already been in a decluttering mode prior to this, however this really helped push me in getting rid of even more of my things that frankly I didn’t need nor want.
So I’ll share some of the things I’ve done and how I’ve gone about getting rid of a large number of things that I don’t use or even want anymore in my apartment.
So that’s a bit about me. I’ll be posting again soon! Please let me know a little bit more about yourselves.
