20 Things You Probably Don't Know...

I should probably clarify that... 20 things you probably didn't know about me.

I always find it fun whenever I see these lists on Facebook or other platforms because I enjoy getting to know my friends... and I decided that since I am courting you, you should probably get to know me a bit better.

  1. I am a survivor of domestic violence. I fled from my ex-husband and our home after he violently assaulted me over misplacing my car keys. I have not seen him or spoken to him since I testified against him court.

  2. We were separated for 2 years before our divorce was finalized. The day it was final I threw a party!

  3. I suffer from PTSD and General Anxiety Disorder which is characterized by extremely depressive episodes. While I still take rescue meds I've taken control of my mental health with a balanced diet and sleep.

  4. My dog Buddy, is a rescue and certified Emotional Support Dog. He helps me manage disorders.

  5. I haven't named any of my pets. Since they've all been rescues, I kept their names. Which is probably a good thing because Buddy would have ended up being Prince Happy Fluffy-Butt!

  6. I love whiskey, craft beer and Ketel One Vodka. I am a bartender and look forward to going back to work so I have an excuse to drink on Tuesdays.

  7. I watch a ton of TV. If I am at home chances are my TV is on. And I'm not above watching things 2 or 3 times over. I am currently re-watching Homeland, and Sex and the City.

  8. My favorite colors are teal and orange because they are classically tacky together.

  9. I listen to more country music than you'd think and my favorite country song is Drinkin' Problem by Midland because I deeply connect with the lyrics.

  10. I am obsessed with brushing and flossing my teeth but I absolutely hate chewing gum.

  11. I STILL think Titanic is the greatest movie ever made and I can recite almost every line.

  12. My dog is my best friend. He has traveled to 23 states with me and lived in 3.

  13. I am addicted to Dr. Pepper, and I prefer soda to coffee, but I will still drown myself in coffee if necessary!

  14. I desperately want to feel settled and secure and I worry that I may never feel either.

  15. Almost every article of clothing I own is black and whenever I wear colors people ask me if I am feeling okay.

  16. I love books. My favorite book is "Bright Shiny Morning" by James Frey. I have read it cover to cover 6 times, yet its surprisingly not in my home library.

  17. I am left-handed.

  18. I'm addicted to bad reality TV, and I want to be famous only to go on "Watch What Happens Live!"

  19. I don't like listening to music when I drive, I find it distracting. I prefer listening to talk radio.

  20. I found it really hard to come up with 20 things about myself to talk about.
