There was a fun little tag going on Instagram called "5 things about yourself."
I was tagged by couple of my friends, but I never got around doing it.
I know I don't share a lot about myself on this blog, so I thought it would be fun to do it here and have you guys get to know me better. 
Plus, I was so sick yesterday that I wasn't able to get out of my pajamas. 
Which means no outfit post today.... :(

With that being said, I want to get to know you guys more too! 
I would love it if you wrote a little bit about yourselves in the comment section. 

So, here are 5 things you don't know about me...

1. As a child I used to be terrified of Beetlejuice. I would have nightmares frequently. I couldn't knock on a door three times, or even say the name Beetlejuice  22 years later, I can finally say his name. But I don't think I could ever watch the movie still...

2. I don't like jam. In fact, I don't like apple pie, peach cobbler, any fruit that's been heated at one point.
It's really odd. I can only eat cold fruit. And while we are talking about things I don't like, I hate mayo,  raw tomatoes, and pickles.

3. I'm from Sapporo, Japan. My mother is Japanese and my father is American. I grew up in Japan for 16 years. Because I attended Japanese public schools, japanese is my first language. 

4. I'm caring to a fault. I can confidently say I don't know anyone that cares as much as I do. It's a sickness I have. I easily get affected by emotion's of others and have unhealthy expectations for perfectionism. Because of this trait that I have I am naturally a sensitive person.

5. I love the TV show Friends. It never gets old. I can quote the entire series better than anyone. And speaking of TV shows, I used to never watch lots of series, but ever since I've been married I've become a little obsessed with a handful of shows like... Dexter, Breaking Bad, Homeland, The Walking Dead, and occasional trash TV shows like the Vampire Diaries, The Bachelor, and........ all the Kardashian shows. I'm not proud of it guys... But I've been sucked in to their world just like thousands of people in this country. Oh, and another classic that I will always and forever love is Sex And the City.

I'm not a big fan of raw tomatoes either to be honest, though I suppose I could eat them with salads where there's heaps of dressing haha! I quite like fruity desserts, though not sure if I could eat a warm fruit by itself :S

I hate pickles too! It's the biggest labor of love to make my hubby a sammich and reach into the jar to put 2 whole slices on it. ICK! And I also love Friends. And I yearn to watch it on several occasions! :P

Hi dear!
Nice to hear some facts about yourself!
When I was little I liked beetlejuice! But I was a weird girl who liked bugs and frogs as pets ;)
Funny that you hate raw tomatoes but can't eat other cooked fruit !
How was life growing up in Japan? I would love to visit that wonderful country one day!
I'm hooked to a couple of tv shows too, Breaking bad is one of my favorite!
Take care

I don't know why, but I was scared to death of the movie E.T.. The part where he is all skinny and pale laying by that drainage ditch... freaked. me. out! With that being said though, I am a HUGE Walking Dead nerd (I'm talking with a comic collection and everything). Don't judge, it's a great show! Love getting to know you better, and love your style!

P.S. Pickles are nasty, and call me unAmerican, but I don't like apple pie either.

Nancy said...

This is great. I love getting to know you more!
I too LOVE Friends. I still love to watch reruns on TV.
I visited Japan in my first ever flight and overseas trip (all in one). Talk about a jump into frightening territory. I only got a chance to visit Osaka...but it was incredible.

Denysia Yu said...

I love Friends, and Sex and the City too! :)

CoastWithMe said...

Yes, I never EVER liked Beetlejuice! I'm too sensitive for my own good. Your problems end up being my problems. And I too have an unhealthy expectation for perfectionism! Friends is one of my all time favorite shows! I always watch it at the end of a long day for a little laughter and pick me up! It's the best! I wish the series never ended! Loved getting to know more about you! Feel better girl!

Strange how these childhood scares still affect us later on. Well, I am maybe the opposite, always enjoyed a good scare, was reading Sherlock Holmes when I was six, and watching horror movies with my grandmother when I was ten. Thanks for infusing your blog today with your personality. Keep it coming! xo
