10 Things About Me


This has been a popular thing to do over on BookLikes recently, so I finally took an afternoon to try to come up with ten at least reasonably interesting things about myself. Here's what I've got.
  1. I've never left the U.S.
  2. I took Spanish and Latin lessons in middle and high school.
  3. I've had two cats: one who my parents took in as a stray before I was born and died when I was seven, and another who we adopted when I was eleven and who's turning ten this year.
  4. Depression, anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia are common on both sides of my family, and I've suffered from the first two since puberty hit.
  5. I have ancestors who emigrated from Spain, England, and Ireland, as well as a handful of ancestors whose ethnic identity and country of origin are still ambiguous. Unfortunately, I doubt I'm ever going to be able to find any records to clear up the mystery.
  6. When I was in fifth or sixth grade, part of our summer reading assignment was to keep a chart of what we read, when we read it, and how many pages it all totaled. I think we were expected to read around three to five books or so, at best; I turned in two or three pages of titles. I did it again for seventh and eighth grade, in spite of neither teacher actually assigning it. (Me, a dork? Heavens, no! Whatever gave you that idea?)
  7. My all-time favorite video games are the original Spyro trilogy--though I love the Sims franchise, too!
  8. While I'm fascinated by religion and mythology from an academic standpoint, I'm an atheistic antitheist.
  9. I'm a huge fan of children's media--books, movies, shows, you name it.
  10. I own over a thousand books--and that's physical books, not ebooks!
