Pleasure to “meet” you! I’m always unsure of how to introduce myself in these little about me things, so I guess I’ll just get right down to it. My name is Rachel, I’m in my 20s, and I live in the Tampa Bay area.
Now that we’ve gotten my demographics out of the way, let’s get to the cool stuff. I really, really like books and photography, especially anything fiction and surrealist based. That probably, most definitely, stems from my interest in dreams. I’m practically obsessed with them. Did you know people who grew up with black and white television sets dreamt in black and white? Or that people who are blind tend to have dreams of colors swirling about? SO COOL!
Getting back on track… I also spend a lot of time listening to music—mostly various forms of rock. Love me some Issues, Audiostrobelight, Secrets, Something Corporate, Blackbear, Sam Hunt, and Miss Fortune. That’s just a small taste of what I listen to.
But beyond that, I enjoy spending time exploring outdoors. I like to go for walks daily, go kayaking, and venture to new restaurants. (I wouldn’t consider myself a foodie though. I’m WAY too picky for that!)
Otherwise, there are a few fun facts you should probably know about me.
-I’ve lived in Illinois, Alaska, Hawaii, California, Missouri, and now Florida.
-I had blue hair for a two month time span
-I once stuck my hand inside a lions mouth
-I don’t like chocolate or ice cream.
-I enjoy finding odd bits of information to store away in my brain and use for later DYK conversation inserts.
And last but not least, I might have a bad case of RBF when you see me randomly in public, but I adore meeting new people and learning their backstories. Helps me come up with new writing material. 😉
Basically, what I’m saying is don’t be shy! Introduce yourself to me so we can get to know each other better.
