Today marks post #4 of Alex Beadon’s Feel Better Blogging Challenge.
The prompt for today is 10 things you might not know about me. I always have a hard time with theses kind of posts because I can never think of anything interesting. I usually start with, I am the only girl of 4 brothers.
That’s how I got a brilliant idea for today’s post. I’m going to let my brother’s tell you 10 things about me that you might not know. It’s been kind of fun, and they’ve told me some things that even I didn’t remember. Like how I thought about being a mechanic and I once made a floral arrangement out of ice cream. Oh, and apparently I accidentally talk like a chipmunk when I’m excited.
10 things you might not know about Kristie Hill – according to her brothers.
1. I am the only girl of 4 brothers.
“You have four brothers, at times you can act more boyish than any of them” -Yeah, that is true.
This is a picture of me and my 4 brothers on my wedding day. It is my favorite picture of the 4 of us. Like many sibling relationships, they were/are my best friends and worst enemies. For the most part, we had a great time together.
Here’s a picture of the 4 of them from this summer. (Alex, if you’re reading this, I edited this with your ocean wave Photoshop action – thanks!)
2. I’m a competitive
“You are crazy competitive”
“As a child you could beat me in a wrestling match, and you probably still could today.” – I doubt it, I’m a weakling these days
“You have a little bit of a tom boy competitive side”
-Beware of family game night!
3. I play with my hair in uncomfortable situations
“You twirl your hair on the right side of your head when you’re answering difficult questions or trying to remember something”
“You run both hands in your hair when frustrated”
4. I’m kind of clumsy
“You broke your collar bone falling off a toy slide”
“You have a talent for running into stationary objects” -I’ll save that for another day, when I have to tell an embarrassing story
“You have lots of broken bones”
5. I have weird joints
“You’re thumb bends weird”
“You’re double jointed in some weird places, which allows you to bend in strange ways” -Good for winning wrestling matches and thumb wars!
6. I ran my first business when I was 14
“You ran your first business at the age of 14, the haunted house”
“You ran a haunted house”
-One of the funnest things I did growing up. In the off season, my friends and I would sell candy after school to earn money for more props. Halloween is still one of my favorite holidays.
7. I was a band nerd in high school
“You played the bass clarinet” -It’s true. I loved being part of the band in high school. From symphonies to football games, I loved it all! One of my proudest moments in high school was receiving a letter inviting me to the Washington State honor band
8. I have strong emotions
“You cry for random reasons”
“Food effects your mood”
“You were a bossy baby sitter”
9. I like Harry Potter
“You got your entire family into the Harry Potter franchise” -Yep. This is my favorite Harry Potter comic because I think it explains me very well.
One of my a favorite Harry Potter quotes, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” -Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban
10. I had bangs
“You once had bangs” -Here is proof:
