1.) I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science.

And I’ve never once had a job since college where it even remotely related to this field.

2. I’ve had 7 jobs at 6 different companies in the past 6 years.

Two of which were due to being laid off — And I’m not at all ashamed to admit that.

3. I’ve ran 3 full marathons.

And I’m going for my fourth next month.

4. I’m not allergic to anything (as far as I know).

But, stay tuned for updates if I happen to find myself in an emergency room with an EpiPen sticking out of my leg.

5. I used to be in a band with my sister.

Our band was calledUntil Love— It was me, my sister, and our mutual friend. We even played some paid gigs around Manhattan and Brooklyn.

6. I’ve never broken a single bone in my body.

And I’m really hoping to keep it that way…forever

7. I once had to actually be rescued by a lifeguard when I was at the beach.

I was 13 and I got caught in an undertow which took me so far out from the shore that the people on the beach looked like ants.

8. I won $300 on a Wheel of Fortune game the first time that I ever went to a casino.

I was 18 and it also happened to be first time that I had ever flown on a plane in my life.

9. I have an irrational fear of a zombie apocalypse actually happening.

I must have watched too many zombie movies as a kid, but I legitimately think that a zombie apocalypse is 100% possible.

10. As far as my career goes, I really have no idea what I want to do with my life.

I guess this one is the twist that we’re supposed to include because similar to my nonexistent allergies, it can change.
