25 Random Facts About Me

1. When I was in second grade and I could swim perfectly well, I had a friend who couldn't swim and my mother signed me up to take swimming lessons with her. The water was so freezing that I had a phobia of water for the rest of second grade and would act sick to get out of swimming lessons.

2. I am very organized... except I have to work super hard to keep my room clean even as an adult.

3. I used to pronounce my name as "pin" when I was a toddler.

4. My family is gigantic. I'll draw you a family tree sometime. I'm not even exaggerating. It's huge.

5. When I was child, I was the girl who constantly had bruises all over her legs and also scratches and cuts and bandages. At one point, it was so bad that one of my teachers suspected I was getting abused and talked to my parents, who didn't let me go outside and play for weeks.

13. I hate jelly.

14. I hate roller coasters.

15. As a kid, there was a girl at my school who I hated, but all the teachers loved her and they thought it was adorable that she had an imaginary friend, so I made one up named Ariki, but I didn't actually believe in him.

17. I love running and exercising.
