Everyday, I will encounter multiple things and places that spark a memory or an emotion that are uniquely my own. However, when asked on the spot about pretty much anything that defines me as a person, I constantly draw blanks.
The other day, I got a note from my amazingly crafty homemaker friend Bea asking me to share some facts about myself through Instagram. Although at that moment the request left me starring at a crack in the wall, trying to think of anything about myself that was even remotely interesting, I was excited about coming back to this self serving idea.
Even when I was just a wee emotional nugget back on the LiveJournal farm, no one had ever involved me in one of these silly survey-esque things. This was to be a new first!
So yesterday, when my alarm went off, I gathered up some supplies and went about my day of errand running with a plan. To stop along the way, write out personal facts that I was reminded of as they hit me, and take a photo of the fact along side the thing that triggered it.
I packed the following fact documenting items:
- composition book
- photos that didn’t turn out quite right
- artist tape
- and a fully charged iPhone (& Hipstamatic app)
Since its now 11/11/11, and I’m pretty much an 11 year old with a bank account, I figure its fitting to share 11 random facts about myself!
