Everyone needs an “About Me”

Everyone needs an “About Me” section in their life. Celebrities and presidents have biographies and so often the “average” person hardly knows themselves. I don’t need a biography, but it can be fun to write about yourself. Sometimes writing about yourself for others to see help you understand more about yourself. PLUS, it’s so fun to write down all the things you love about yourself/facts about yourself. Here are some fun one about me.

  1. I’m only about 5 feet and I’ve always been smaller, but I secretly love it. I hated it when I was younger.
  2. I am DEATHLY afraid of snakes. It is hard for me to even write the word. I can’t even look at them on TV. And if I see them in real life, I will end up in the hospital with a heart attack. I had horrible nightmares as a kid.
  3. I CRAVE to be alone because I never am.
  4. I love love. Hopeless romantic, make me feel special, spark my soul, The Notebook kind of love. It’s a feeling. The person comes second.
  5. I am stubborn, competitive, jealous, empathetic, obsessive and sensitive and I hate all that about myself.
  6. Once my heart gets broken, it never goes back. Scarred forever.
  7. I’ve been a special education teacher for 12 years. I have a Masters in Special Education and a Bachelors in Elementary Education and Psychology, but I want to go back to school for Nursing.
  8. I LOVE crime and forensics. It would be so cool to be in the FBI.

  10. I was a cheerleader in high school and college and we were on ESPN for Nationals. I was a flyer and a spaz with the worst high v ever hahaha, right Ape?!

  12. I feel SO many feelings all day long and it’s exhausting.
  13. I love love helping people. I think sometimes it’s because I want to bury all my other feelings deep down and not have to face them myself. I want to face others problems, not my own.
  14. I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe in fate.
  15. I don’t believe in meeting random people. We all cross each others path for a reason. Sometimes we won’t ever know the reason, but sometimes we will.
