More About Shelby

17 Random Things About Me:

  1. My grandma gave me a cup of mango tea when I was a kid. Boom. That was it. Tea drinker.
  2. I like symmetry and odd numbers. I don’t know what that means about me, if anything, from a psychological standpoint.
  3. My moon sign is Scorpio, which explains a few things about me. (My sun sign is Gemini, which also may explain a few things about me. Namely that I take a lot of offense at being called “two-faced.”)
  4. The only word I can come up with to describe my ideal sweater is “schlumpy.”
  5. Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent is my favorite book ever, and I recommend it to pretty much everyone.
  6. I have not been courageous enough to watch the Lifetime adaptation of The Red Tent.
  7. The only thing I am hardcore about is how NOT-hardcore I am.
  8. I love family-style restaurants.
  9. When I travel somewhere new, I like to go to a zoo and to a cemetery. (If you need directions to find the “I TOLD YOU I WAS SICK” headstone in the Key West Cemetery, I’m the person to ask!!!)

    It exists. Pics. It happened.

  10. At one point I was pursuing a Master’s degree in finance. (That’s a story for another time.)
  11. I love rivers.
  12. My Girl Scout cookie of choice is the Tagalong, but I do very much like Samoas and Thin Mints, too. Also, cookies aside, Girl Scouts are freaking amazing.
  13. I love bears! They are my favorite land animal. My favorite marine animal is the manatee. I love manatees!
  14. I don’t drink nearly as many dirty chais as I would like.
  15. I was going to type something here about my favorite ABBA song… but I don’t have a favorite ABBA song, it turns out. (ABBA happens to be my favorite music group of all time)
  16. For some reason I cannot really explain, I knew the words to the Canadian national anthem before I knew my own country’s. I have memories of being 3 or 4 and singing “O, Canada.”
  17. I picked 17 because I like prime numbers, too.
