As we all know, people only share what they want to share on social media. Little snippets of their lives. Their meals, their workouts, their outfits of the day, family photos, vacations etc. But obviously very surface level stuff. And for good reason most of the time. After all, not everythingggg is meant for social media (sorry guys).
As a blogger I think that’s one of the things I struggle with most… Trying to be as transparent as possible, so you guys can relate, but also knowing when it’s time to stop snapchatting or posting on ig stories. You see, while I don’t have a problem sharing most of my everyday life, DeAndre is a little more private. And obviously I’m with him 99% of the time, so that’s something that I need to take into consideration and respect! And honestly there’s days when I don’t feel like sharing anything too! Weird for a blogger, I know! But some days you just need a good social media cleanse! Who’s with me?! Plus, a big chunk of me and D’s time is spent laying on our couch watching Netflix (“Netflix & Chillen”). So you guys really aren’t missing much! haha. But I think I’ve come to a happy medium. What do y’all think? Is there anything else you guys want to see? Or anything else you want to see more or less of?
I decided to do this post so you can get to know a few facts about me, that not everyone knows. Call it the exclusive! haha.. but if you’re expecting me to say something crazy like “I battle gators in my free time”, you’ve come to the wrong place. Although, I WISH I DID! ha!… you’ll find out why below!.. So anyways, I’m obviously getting sidetracked yet again. Let’s get this going!!
And if at the end of this, you feel like sharing too, feel free to send me a comment or email with something about yourself! I’d love to get to know you or get to know you more!!
So Here Goes Nothing!
I was born in Portland, Oregon. Sadly I was NOT born in Cali. I moved here in 5th grade
I was captain of the varsity cheer team in high school and part of student government
When I was 16, I went to South Korea with my hip hop crew, to dance in the Fire Festival. I danced for 15 years
The Jabbawockeez were my dance teachers BEFORE they became famous.. and for a little while after
I worked at Juicy Couture, Nordstrom, Coach, True Religion & AT&T throughout college
I was in a sorority forrrr….. literally like 2 months my first semester at Sac, before deciding it wasn’t for me
Me and DeAndre met our senior year at Sac State… on Instagram (ugh! so not romantic)
It took me five years to graduate college (no shame! I was a business major and math is NOT my strong suit! ha!)
I’m 25 (in case you missed my ig post in July)
I drive a black, 2016 Kia Optima
I have another job (besides blogging). I oversee influencer marketing for a beauty company (for more deets, click here)
I don’t cook… Well, I can cook fried chicken so what else would I need to know how to cook?!
I love me some trap rap! But gospel and country music have been on repeat lately
I usually fall asleep around 9:30 (I’m a grandma)
I don’t drink (well I’ll probably drink like 3x-4x a year.. max!)
I don’t like IN N OUT, Nutella, or popcorn (90% of you probably hate me now lol)
I have naturally curly hair
Sour candy makes me sweat (weird, I know. I can’t explain it)
I get really shy around people I don’t know (RBF?). but I’m super loud when I’m around my friends/family.
I’m scared of roller coasters
I don’t drink coffee
I have an odd/unhealthy obsession with alligators after my first trip to florida last year (i’ve gone 8 times since then)
& I’m a HUGE family person!
..Well guys, that’s all I got for ya! Feel free to share a line or two about yourselves! 🙂
Wow, you danced for a long time! 🖤 Jabbawockeez
