Ten Facts About Me

January 14, 2019 in Makeup & Style

Hey, Y’all!

I wanted to share with y’all some facts about me that you might find interesting. I want you to know more about the individual who writes this blog. If you are curious about the in and outs of my day, head over to my Instagram @christinmeiburg for more of the day to day things, but without further ado, here are 10 things you might not know about me!

  1. I am a huge nerd. I love to read; I love school, I love to write papers for fun, textbooks are great.
  2. I have had two open heart surgeries, have three artificial heart valves, have gortex and Teflon in my heart and have a defibrillator. This is a long story that I will make a post about, but for now, this is what I’ve got.
  3. I come from a blended family. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. I have one biological brother, and several step-siblings as each of my parents have remarried. Being part of a blended family can be hard for sure, but it’s not the end of the world as I thought it was when my parents first got remarried when I was in high school.
  4. I have a chronic illness called fibromyalgia. Again I will do a whole post on what fibromyalgia is and another on what it’s like to live with a chronic illness. If I’m honest, it sucks, a lot. It limits me at times, but it does not define me it is just an interesting thing about me.
  5. I love planners, and I love to plan. I am still on the search for the perfect planner. I make a To Do list daily of things that need to get done. I make a list every Sunday of all the things for the week and then break it up over the days. I love to see things written out rather than on a screen.
  6. I got engaged in August 2018 and am getting married in August 2019. Kyle and I met on a dating app and quickly hit it off and have been together ever since. We literally can’t wait to get married, in fact, we have thought about eloping but have ultimately decided we want a small wedding for our friends and family.
  7. I am working on my masters, and I am going to get my Ph.D. after finishing my masters. I have wanted to be in academia my whole life, and I am excited to start the journey of getting my Ph.D. and starting my career in academia. I love to research, and I love to teach, so academia is the perfect career for me.
  8. Kyle and I want to adopt children. We don’t want to have any biological children for many reasons, and we are so excited about having children in the coming years. Having children in a nontraditional way might be strange to some but it is the way we want to do it, and we are excited about that. It is something I can remember talking to my mom and friends about in middle school. It is something I have wanted forever, and I am excited that the time is coming soon(ish).
  9. I love listening to podcasts, especially mental health and personal development podcasts. I will do a whole post on my favorite podcasts and some of my favorite episodes from these podcasts coming soon.
  10. I’m a coffee addict. I LOVE coffee. I can drink it in any way. It’s truly an amazing drink in my opinion. I have been drinking coffee since I was in high school and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

    • There are some new faces around here so let me introduce myself. I'm Christin! I'm engaged to the love of my life and we are getting married on August 17th. I'm a dog mom to a wonderful poodle. I am a graduate student getting my degree in strategic communication. Most importantly I am in the process of getting my ICF certification to be a coach. I want to help females entering college or entering the workforce figure out what they want to do with their lives. I'm living my dream and can't wait to take y'all along for the ride!
    • Spring has finally come as has the rain. Gloomy days like today make me so excited for summer days sitting at a brewery sipping on a summery drink and enjoying the sunshine. Anything that gets me outside and spending time with my friends is really the joy of spring and summer for me. .

What's your favorite thing to do on a nice day filled with sunshine?
    • These two are my rocks. Yesterday was a horrible day. I woke up in more pain then I have been in recently. My sciatica was acting up. I was in so much pain that I started throwing up. I had to go to the doctor which I hate. I got food poisoning from dinner out. The list goes on.
.
.
But these two held my hair back as I got sick. Laid in bed with me. Comforted me. Told me everything was going to be okay. Supported me in ways they don't even realize. .
.
I am so unbelievably grateful to them and love them so much! I'm a lucky girl.
    • Got to spend my day with this cutie while her mom, my best friend, got some school work done. I love days when I get to hang out and help others so they can reach their highest potential. We rise by lifting others. Love you @threaden!
    • Waking up every morning knowing I have food to eat and coffee to drink is always something I am grateful for. Not everyone has the luxury of this and so I never want to take it for granted. Feeling super grateful today that I get to eat avocado toast for breakfast whenever I want. .

What is something you are grateful for today?!
    • My plant obsession has hit a high. I am now talking pictures of plants I'm in love with while I'm out with the fiancé hahaha. I love plants but I love him more.
