And now the seven facts about me:
1 I never break the rules. 🙂
2 I started this blog very reluctantly and only because I thought I needed it to gather an audience for this novel I’m working on. But since I’ve started, I feel I have made new friends. I never anticipated I would enjoy this so much.
3 I’m half-Korean, but I’ve never been to Korea, I don’t speak Korean and I really don’t care for kimchi (the real stuff smells like a rotting animal corpse). Culturally, the only Korean thing about me is that I take my shoes off when I come into a house and can’t seem to throw away things like yogurt containers (hey, that’s free Tupperware.)
4 I prefer informal gatherings involving paper plates and dirty jokes to formal dinner parties with “intellectual discussion.”
5 I love karaoke and dancing. I’m actually a pretty silly person, but most of the time I don’t show it. This is my chance to show it. In public.
6 I love being in my 30’s. I never did any of #5 in my early 20’s, which is when most people do those things. Who knows what future decades will bring? The older I get, the more these ridiculous inhibitions fall away and the happier I am.
7 It’s a good thing I’m on my last fact because I’m starting to run out of ideas. Well…I started roasting my own coffee. I was using a popcorn popper to do it, but now I have an actual coffee roaster. (The popcorn popper thing is not the way to go because you can’t control the heat and timing.) There’s really nothing like coffee that’s properly roasted and fresh. If you’re interested in doing the same, check out Sweet Maria’s.
