33 Random Facts About Me

My birthday is next Sunday and I honestly can’t believe that I am turning 33. Wait, what? How did this happen so quickly?! It’s had me going through all sorts of emotions just
thinking back to how far I have come, what I have done so far in my life and so on and so forth.  I thought that in honor of this, I would do a fun post today sharing 33 random facts about me that most of you did not know.  I am planning to follow up next week with 33 things that I have learned so far. I’ve never done posts like this before so I hope that you enjoy it.  Here’s a random photo of me to go along with all of these random facts. 😉

  1. I was an R.A. and lived on campus my junior and senior year in college.

  4. I used to wear braces and huge prescription glasses.

    diagnosed with cancer. May 2010 was horrible.

  27. I have a weird obsession with all of the superhero shows like The Flash, Arrow, and Daredevil. No idea why, I just can’t stop. I blame Netflix.

    i can’t help but be curious, how did your american idol audition go and what ended up happening?

    • Naty

      Thanks so much! So basically my audition was in this huge room filled with a bunch of tables and at each table there were several judges. They grouped us for each table and literally pointed to us one at a time to sing for about 30 seconds. I didn’t make the first round lol but it was an amazing experience. At that time I was fresh out of high school and hadn’t taken singing lessons yet so I had a lot to learn and improve. But I’ve always been proud of myself for trying out. 🙂
