I was nominated to do this by one of the very few users whom I actually like and think is really interesting as a person, so, here it is.
Warning: None of these are super-duper interesting, I just picked stuff I figured I haven't ever mentioned about myself before.
1) I was an honours student in college and won a couple of awards.
I went to school in the city of Oshawa in Ontario Canada for journalism in print and did a small stint in broadcast doing college radio. I was an honours student every semester and I even won two awards. One for best news story in the first year and one for a radio show I produced in my final year.
2) I tint/dye my eyebrows.
I have extremely light eyebrows, and it’s one of the few insecurities I actually feel compelled to change, so I colour my eyebrows to better match my hair.
3) I didn’t originally want to be a journalist, I wanted to be a social worker.
I had a shitty childhood, so, it only made sense to me at the time to get into social work. It wasn’t until I did a few classes when I realized this just wasn’t for me, I didn’t have the skills for it, and I dropped out shortly after my first semester. I worked professionally for a year and returned to college for journalism as I had always been praised for my writing and story-telling “talents.”
4) I type in “CP Style” on G@G (not always perfectly)
CP Style, or Canadian Press Style is exactly what you think: a Canadian style of writing primarily implemented in the press. If you ever seen me write “per cent” instead of percent or %, it’s because I write in CP Style.
5) I GENUINELY don’t know why people like me and I wonder about it A LOT
I never seem to have a shortage of friends or people online who say they admire me, and I literally can’t fucking figure out why.
6) I have an unhealthy obsession with Jared Keeso.
He's just literally the epidemy of fucking manly, sexy Canadian swagger and I want to take a ride on his disco stick to the point it HURTS.
7) I have revealed my face to ONE person on G@G before
This is actually true. I had one person I trusted enough on this site who I did show a photo of myself to. It had a lot of filters on it, so it was obscure already, but I did show my face once. This person is no longer active on the site, so, don’t look for them.
