Some Things You May Not Know About Me v.2

Some Things You May Not Know About Me v.2 | Freckled Italian

I love to take really hot showers. Like, really super duper skin-scalding hot showers.

In a perfect world (and when they're on sale), I eat an avocado every day. Just slice it open, sprinkle salt, pepper, and cayenne powder, then dig right in with a spoon.

I have a great love and appreciation for things that are dramatic and dark, but if it happens at night then I need to watch or read something funny right after. Game of Thrones is my favorite show in the world but you bet your ass I'm usually watching an episode of How I Met Your Mother before bed.

Taking care of Ender has greatly reduced my day-to-day anxiety and I think service dogs must really be little angels sent from heaven to people who need them, because Ender's just a normal dog who is pretty crazy a lot of the time and I still feel like he's helped me in more ways than I can count. Also this gives me a lot of hope for motherhood because I always worry that I'm going to be an insane mom who is afraid of everything but I'm starting to think I'll be able to handle it.

I really don't love public speaking, but I would say my ability to do it is at least respectable. Whenever I finish delivering a speech or presentation I always feel really good but then can't remember any detail of it because I'm pretty sure I black out when speaking in front of others.

I always knew I liked noodles but now I know I love noodles. Paleo, you're great but I'm having a big bowl of pho once this Whole30 is over.
