Fun Facts About ME Friday

No, I did not quit the Alphabet Soup posts.  Yes, I will continue.  Yes, I do have some greats for C.  Yes, I will eventually do outfit posts.  I need to get a tripod, but I've been lazy about it.   

I thought since it's Friday and I don't really talk about myself that much, that I'd do a post about me.  And what's more interesting than fun facts about me?!  So, here are a few things you didn't know about me.

1. I love paintballing.  And I'm gooood.  Beat out about 40 boys.  We used to play all the time but haven't in a while. 

The hubs and I in our matching gear.  Haha.

Where's Amy?  Can you spot me?  Hint: I'm the only girl.

2. I openly love Gossip Girl, 90210, and Melrose Place.  I drop everything to watch them on Monday and Tuesday nights. 

Gossip Girl


Melrose Place

3. I'm deathly afraid of the water, but I love white water rafting.  It's weird, I know.  I don't get it either.  Must be the thrill seeker in me.

That's me with my head turned away from the camera on the right side of the raft.  Keep your eye on me.

Where's Amy?  Again.  Yes, I'm completely submerged under the water.  Yes, that is terrifying for someone who can't swim.  Yes, I would do it again!

4. I was born a lefty, but my dad forced me to be a righty.  I write with my right hand, strum the guitar with my left, I snowboard goofy foot, and I play video games like I would fly (pushing the joystick away from me is down and towards is up).  I'm all backwards!  Makes me... unique... right?

5. I just found out about 5 years ago that I'm not full Korean.  I'm part Russian.  Probably explains my lighter hair.  No, I do not dye my hair. 

So, that's a little bit of me.  I hope you found it somewhat interesting.  I love knowing these types of random facts about people.  If you're game, you should try it out.  Post 5 random things about yourself, because it's Fun Facts About ME Friday!!!!


  1. aww, i loved reading this! i had no idea you liked paintball, ive never done it, too much of a chicken! very cool that you have some russian heritage! <3


  2. This is charming -- fashion bloggers so rarely write about themselves that I always find it so interesting when they do!

  3. Thanks for sharing!

    Rock on with the paintballing - I've always wanted to try it.

    And I'm the same way with the rafting! I've been twice in NM, but I can't swim either. I just paddled really hard and had my foot wedged real good in that raft pocket.

  4. WOW! Paintballing?! I would had never guessed! Cool! 8)

  11. How fun! I like know ing more about the person behind the blog.

    Paintballing, snow sports and thrill seeker? Are we the same person? ;) I love all that stuff too and just like you, tend to be the only girl in an all guy group since I am the only one willing to participate. Sometimes you have to get dirty and be a risk taker to have fun. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  12. I love that you go paint balling & do all this extreme stuff! Crazy neat! Hahaha, I swear Korean parents have such a thing against being left handed! It's weird. I enjoyed reading about you! :)

  14. Loved it, Amy! You are so tough! Paintball, white water rafting, snowboarding, to use an over-used phrase, "You go, girl!" Bah! I would be afraid of the paintballs and run away from them.

  42. Great post! Always nice to see personal touches from the author. Paintballing - ouch! I've done that a few times - wish I was good. Oh, I love your hair color. You are right, I did mistake it as dyed. But now that I know it's natural, I like it even more. Thanks for letting us know more about you!

  43. I loved getting to know you better girl! How fun!! I think we both have fun adventurous personalities.

    And thank you so much for my award!!! I am SO behind in everything in the technology world and hope to get caught up this week.

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

  50. never knew you liked paintball ! its always interesting to read more about bloggers :)

  51. This was so much fun to read! It's so cute that you are good at paintball. Good on you! And all the adventures (but not liking water!)

    I think it's cute that you are so good with the adrenaline things but also kind girly with your tv shows.

    And that's great that you are part russian. My hair is like yours and people think I dye mine too. x

  52. Ugh, I used to watch those shows obsessively but this season I have only seen like 2 episodes of each! Time to get online and watch the whole season.


  53. I loved reading this!
    And I'm a huge fan of Gossip Girll too ;)

  54. You are adorable. I can't believe that photo of you rafting! ha ha. You lived though, that's good. You have beautiful hair. Never dye it!


  55. i love melrose and 90210 too! i use to be an avid gossip girl fan but kind of lost interest after last season.

  56. awww you two are so cute together!!!

  57. what a great post, very impressive about the paintball and rafting skills, and how interesting to find out something new about your heritage. u're lucky u don't have to dye your hair!

    i just did a post about "me in 3's" or else i'd do the 5 facts too ;-)



Thanks so much for your lovely comment!
