Disclaimer: Yes, I know ..... I know I am a little late for the "questions about me" trend.
As a good old millennial, I've seen the start of the internet and how it has grown to impacts our lives. Today, social media and trends are the key to my job as a Creative Director. But what the internet also taught me?
Years of social media taught me to be more secluded about my personal life... and I realized that I am not using the number one perk of the virtual world: connections!
So I decided to introduce myself using the best icebreaker possible: oversharing online! Yay!

THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIND'T KNOW ABOUT ME...
Favorite Movie Genre
My favorite movie genre is horror, which brings us to the next question: my favorite movie. Well, I don't know how to explain this to you but my favorite movie of all times is The Nightmare on Elm Street. Since we are on the movie topic, next question! haha
First Movie I Remember Seeing
Believe me or not, the first movie I remember seeing I watched with my parents when I was around 4 or 5 and it was Scream. My parents are cool... or weird... who knows.
I don't know if this is actually a pet peeve or if my ADHD (another curiosity) causes me Misophonia but I can't stand mouth noises. Loud noises in general bother me but mouth noises is on another level of bothering.
I actually have two fears: fear of the dark and fear of the ocean. I have no idea what the dark did to me to be so scared of it, but the ocean... this one definitely hates me.
When I was 8 I went for a swim with my dad and I hugged a Portuguese man o' war (poisonous jellyfish). And I am allergic to jellyfish poison, how do I know? Because hugging a jellyfish not only burnt me but also almost killed me. And after that I tried to give the ocean another chance but my mom and I almost drowned. So, yeah, the ocean definitely has a beef with me.
My brother and I were raised like Twins
When my brother was 2 months old, my mom accidentally got pregnant of me. My brother and I were supposed to be 11 months apart but I was born premature (another unknown fact) so we are 10 months apart. And because of that, we were raised like twins.
Another fun fact about this is that when I turn 31 (beginning of August), my brother and I will have the same age for 45 days until his birthday (end of September).
I Received a Medal
When I graduated college I received a medal of honor for having the highest GPA of my degree. Funny thing is: I didn't even know I was going to receive the medal and when they called me on stage I dropped my graduation hat and tried to pick it up and dropped it again... it was messy.
Weirdest Thing That Happened to Me
This one is a little bit weird... When I was a kid I had something called Umbilical Hernia and had to have surgery to remove it. Everything was going well in the surgery until.... I woke up in the middle of the surgery! I remember waking up looking down and seeing my belly being stitched and I started to scream. Needles to say I traumatized the entire hospital. (things that just happen to me...)
I Live in the Cat Neighborhood
I live in a street that people take care of the feral cats around and now we have about 50 cats hanging around. They are being loved, respected and fed. Love it here!
My First Celebrity Crush: Bon Jovi
I Sleep With My Eyes Open
That is it. I can't nor I will try to explain the inexplicable.
Birds Scare Me
The animal that scares me the most is any animal that can fly, my brain can't process the fact that an animal can fly and I am terrified of it.
When I was doing my research to get inspiration of what to write I found these interesting questions and I would love if you commented your answer too.
What kind of kid were you in High School?
I was the emo kid that got picked by popular girls.
How many days would you last in solitary confinement?
This is easy, a LOT of days! I love being alone in the silence so I don't think the loneliness would be an issue... the food? maybe...
At a party, where can someone find you?
Nowhere. I always cancel last minute.
What would you name your autobiography book?
The Garbage Book.
I hope you all enjoyed my first post and a little bit of my story here. Please come back! (lol)
Leave a comment with you answers to the bonus questions, let's interact. Feedback and suggestions are appreciated, but please be nice :)
