5 Fun Facts About Me

Hi- Happy Labour Day!!!!

First week of school done! I must say, I actually like taking lecture classes remotely- who knew? Also, it’s nice to have a day off to process the new schedule.

With that said, sophomore year is definitely more work (differential equations anyone?). I’m also starting my own research project along with being an RA for my advisor and occasionally helping out in Professor Loewenstein’s lab. Cooking will definitely be on the back- burner in the foreseeable future 😦 I’ll try my best to do weekly posts, but most likely every other week is more realistic

I finally finished a huge RA task today, so I decided to write another fun post today.

Here are 5 Fun Facts About Me:

  1. I used to HATE writing- That’s right. Before 8th grade, getting me to write anything longer than 2 sentences was harder than my last calc exam.  This all changed in 8th grade when I met an amazing English teacher who gave me confidence in my writing, and the rest is history.
  2. My nose is basically decorative- Sense of smell is very important for cooking. I was not blessed with one. Case in point, I still don’t know what roses smell like. My mom and brother, on the other hand, smell EVERYTHING. Oddly enough, this hasn’t really affected my cooking, but definitely goes a long way in explaining my willingness to try new foods others generally consider repulsive
  3. I’m very sensitive to caffeine- I LOVE the taste of black coffee. Unfortunately, I get through about 1/2 a cup before it’s too much. Even decaf gets too strong sometimes.
  4. My childhood dream was to become a scientist- …… then I realized how much math it took. One of my more dangerous “hobbies” growing up was finding chemicals in the house and mixing them in hopes of creating a reaction. Luckily, none of my “experiments” succeeded. I also got into the habit of looking up any unfamiliar disease I came across. I guess I’ve actually come full circle on this one since economics is technically a science and certainly VERY math- based
  5. I love high fashion and jewelry design – To me, haute couture and high jewelry aren’t luxury products, they’re functional art. I spend quite a bit of free time watching fashion shows and browsing jewelry sites (soft spot for Van Cleef and Arpels) and coming up with my own designs that I can visualize in my head. The problem is that my drawing skills are worse than my sense of smell.

I hope everyone enjoys this post and has a wonderful, safe Labour Day weekend. Until next time, Bye!
