Last year I reflected on what I had learned only after 1 year of blogging.
This year, I think I’ll share with you, some random weird/fun facts about myself. Here we go!
“Space” terrifies me. Have you seen the movie Melancholia? If you haven’t seen that movie, I’ll give you another example: The other day, the BF showed me a picture that represented what our sky would look like if Jupiter was as close to Earth as our moon, and I started screaming. It’s the only thing that truly terrifies me. If you’d like to see the picture I’m talking about, it can be seen here.
I don’t believe in “ghosts,” “psychics,” or “mediums.”
I never-ever-ever-ever wanted to have kids, until the first time my niece smiled at me; my heart melted completely. Now the BF and I have been talking about the possibilities of having our own!
I’m a total nerd. I love video games, comic books, and every weekend my friends and I get together to play Dungeons & Dragons.
I’ve been battling depression and anxiety issues for 10 years now. Instead of pills, I rely other methods, (like exercise and therapy,) to use in my battle against depression.*
I’ve got synesthesia, which is just a fancy way of saying that I see colors with letters and numbers. I am aware that this text is black, however my mind makes a word, for example: SALAD, look red, or the letter H look brown. Months of the year/days of the week also have certain colors, and I have very visual layouts of those as well (they look like sidewalks that wrap around each other).
The BF and I don’t have a “song,” but we have a book: Stardust by Neil Gaiman.
My favorite superhero is Aquaman. He doesn’t get enough credit if ya ask me…
I’m a feminist.
I hate bananas because when I was a kid, I ate too many of those banana flavored circus peanut candies and threw up everywhere.
Even though my site is called “Savory Notes” I love sugar and sweets more. I live for sugar. Sweet tooth? No, more like sweet SOUL. I’ve dropped $50 at a candy shoppe before, and I’ll likely do it again. Don’t judge me!!
*If you’re feeling sadder-than-usual, I IMPLORE you to just take a simple trip to your doctor’s office and take the first step into helping yourself. Also, if anyone in your life calls you LAZY because of your depression, dispose of him/her. Negativity is depression fodder; you don’t need people around you who will be helping your depression, you need people who are going to help you.
I couldn’t leave this post without a good recipe to go along with it. You may remember awhile back I had a post about DRY Soda infused black rice. I still love DRY Soda, and tried a few of their other flavors to come up with this drink… and because I love gin. If you don’t like gin, meh… use vodka or silver rum.
It’s summery and refreshing, not really the first thing anyone thinks of when they think of “autumn,” but why not have a little mental summer break before the crazy holiday season begins?
*Disclosure: DRY Soda sent me coupons that allowed me to try a bunch of their flavors. Yum!
