I interrupt this blog to announce that: This is my 100th post!
In honor of 100, I’m sharing 100 things you may or may not know about me. So in case you’re super bored… (or at least as bored as I was while I wrote this… remember all that free time I had?)
1. My favorite color is yellow.
2. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people misspell the word lose. When you lose weight you will have loose pants!
3. I hate orange juice.
4. I’ve been to Guatemala, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, England, Monaco, Greece, India, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Uruguay, yet I’ve never been to Mexico or Canada!
5. I’ve passed out twice. Once in a market in the Dominican Republic and once on an airplane.
6. I was a development studies major in college.
7. I speak Spanish and sadly am forgetting Portuguese.
8. I want to be a baker. I often threaten to drop out of grad school and become a pastry chef.
9. I have 1 sister and 1 brother.
10. I was probably an accident (sister is 8 years older than me, brother is 11 years older than me… what does that tell you?)
11. I used to hate jeans, since I moved to Ithaca I wear them almost everyday.
12. When I see BBQ or Cuban food, I really miss meat.
13. I actually like meat, I just don’t eat it for environmental/humanitarian reasons not necessarily because I think cows and chickens are cute.
14. I want to be one of those people that wears high heels everyday. Maybe someday…
15. I read WAY too many blogs for my own good, but I love it.
16. I drive a Jetta.
17. I get really frustrated when people hate corporations but love Whole Foods.
18. I forgot to mail my absentee ballot in the last primary (presidential) election.
19. I voted in the last presidential election.
20. My first concert was N Sync.
21. The last concert I went to was Britney Spears (can you tell I’m really a 12 year old?)
22. I think Arrested Development is one of the funniest shows ever created, and I’m a little concerned that they’re making a movie.
23. I hate going to the beach.
24. I was born in the Los Angeles Area, apparently in LA this is hard to come by…
25. I could eat beans everyday and be a happy person.
26. I own a pair of crocs but I don’t wear them out of the house.
27. I want to live in a big city someday (i.e. NYC, SF, Paris, London, Buenos Aires)
28. I’m obsessed with weddings. I don’t plan on getting married anytime soon but I already have mine planned (on a word doc)… weird, I know.
29. I come from a family of dentists. My dad, sister, cousin, and aunt are all dentists.
30. I don’t ride bicycles, the last two times I did, I crashed… badly.
31. I’m known for making cupcakes among my friends, but since I started this blog I’ve only made cupcakes once… Kind of sad.

48. I’m pretty shy when I first meet someone.
49. I get really frustrated when people circle the parking lot looking for a close parking spot when there are plenty of spaces further from the storefront. Really, you can’t walk an extra 50 yards?

90. Currently, my car is not legally registered. This will be fixed ASAP!
91. Chocolate and PB is my favorite combination.
