Welcome! If you're new here,
I've been thinking that a lot of you out there on the interwebs don't really know me that well (my bad, I don't post enough. I only slightly blame you). I feel like an 'About Me' section shouldn't get too long or specific, so that brings us here. I want to share some random quirks about me that you wouldn't necessarily know unless I spell them out. Plus I really love reading get-to-know-me-type posts. Off we go!
To state the obvious, my name is Kiera - that's the Irish spelling of the name, according to legend (my mom). I'm Irish, Polish, and Ukrainian. Yes, I love pierogi and know how to make them *humble brag*
I was a vegetarian for four years, mostly during college. Actually I ate fish, so pescetarian. My family of meat and potato eaters were not happy. But fear not, I'm happily back on the meat bandwagon! (sorry that sounded dirty) Although I've never been a big red meat fan so I tend to stay away.
I'm the sleepiest person I know - I think I sleep as much as a newborn baby, given the time to do so. I can pretty much fall asleep anywhere, including a bus going to Sorrento:
When I worked part-time, I would nap
almost every day. I love snuggling into my comforter and it puts me to sleep around 9 every night. I'm embarrassing I KNOW, let's move on.
It's very rare that you'll see me with perfectly manicured nails. I pick off the polish 1-2 days after painting them myself, but I'll give it a solid week if I pay someone to paint them. Once the first chip appears, they don't stand a chance.
I own far too many workout clothes for someone who gets winded walking up the stairs. I love working out, but lately by the time I get home from work I'm too tired to get to the gym. I'm really good about it on the weekends though! This morning I even made it to a spin class BEFORE work - this is an extremely rare occurrence.
I'm lactose intolerant but at least once a week Patrick and I have a wine and cheese night - the thought of them gets me through the workday.
I studied abroad in Rome in summer 2013, ate a ton of pizza and gelato, and went to an Italian hospital for stomach pains. Lactose is no joke. Aside from that part it was one of my favorite memories.
My final quirk is pretty well-known, but in case you don't: I'm terrified of E.T. My mom once got an E.T. doll from Universal Studios and put it in my suitcase without my knowing. I cried when I discovered it. I was in 8th grade...
Hopefully I can share some more nuances about my life with you, I mean if you're into that sorta thing. Let me know!
