Alright guys. I’ve fallen victim. I don’t know what else to write and so therefore, today, I’ll be writing a list of cool stuff I like, weird stuff I have done, and things I wish I could do. Hopefully it’s not too boring. I tried to make it not be.
1.) I love eating a McDonald’s hashbrown with strawberry jam spread on top. Yes, you read that right. Don’t judge until you try it; if I had judged my boyfriend Dayton for inventing the combo, I wouldn’t have a delicious signature treat to eat whenever I’m at McDonald’s for breakfast. It’s quite possibly the best random food concoction I’ve ever tried.
2.) I also love quinoa. And kombucha. And green tea. I eat pretty good on the weekdays. And no, I don’t just eat these foods cause they’re healthy. I actually do like the taste of them. Although sometimes I do get a sweet tooth, and fruit just won’t cut it.
3.) I hated exercise until the age of 14. That’s when I joined a tai kwon do class, and actually had fun sweating for the first time in my life. I then followed by joining my schools swim team, which didn’t make me sweat a whole lot, but did make me combat my hate of raising my heart rate. Now I’m into running and high-intensity-interval-training, which both raises my heart rate and makes me sweat.
4.) I have always loved hiking, however. It’s probably because my mom went on hiking dates with my dad while she was pregnant with me. Ever since then, I’ve loved being in nature, whether than be by the beach or in the mountains. Although I prefer coastal scenery many times over.
5.) My name has evolved, several times over. I decided I hated my full name, Kaitlyn, in kindergarten. Kaity replaced it until highschool, when I decided I wanted to reinvent myself and go by the name Kate. Eventually I decided I prefer the original spelling or my not-so-original name, and went back to Kaity. The original spelling has it’s pro’s and con’s; people tend to have a hard time with spelling my name correctly, like, all the time.
6.) I hate coffee. Well, ok, if you buy me a salted caramel frappucino from Coffee Bean, I’m not turning that sh*t down. But as far as drinking the liquid to actually feel energized, no. Nope. The jitters is what I imagine being high on cocaine would feel like. I’m good, instead I just try to get a better nights sleep. It’s not always possible.
7.) I am agnostic but love learning about eastern philosophy. All the best entrepreneurs have had something to learn from eastern philosophy. Steve Jobs once took a pilgrimage to India during his early years in Apple. I guess you could say I am interested only because Jobs is, however I have always loved learning anything that will help me develop as a person. Although I do love Steve Jobs. Even though I’ve never owned an Apple product. Sorry Steve. I do plan to soon 😦
8.) I’ve never traveled outside of the U.S. … besides going to Baja California. Then we stopped traveling to Mexico when I turned eight. I do want to start traveling though, now that I’m an adult. I plan to visit Costa Rica, Thailand, and Bali someday.
9.) I have an Irish last name, but I’m mostly Czeck. I’d say at least 50% or so… but I can’t be sure since I’ve never taken that Ancestry.com blood test.
10.) I’m right handed. But I’m creative. Which I guess isn’t that weird. But wouldn’t it be weird if I were left handed and not creative?
