15 Facts about MOI

About pages are great, but let’s face it, you can’t really get into the nitty gritty details of who you are. In an effort to be more open, I decided to do a 15 facts about me post so you guys can get to know me a little better. Hopefully I can even come up with 15 some what interesting things about myself… Here goes nothing! Note that this was originally going to be 25 facts, but I couldn’t come up with that many…

  1. I am a Leo, and let me tell you I could not be more of a summer beach girl. To be totally honest, I definitely suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) fitting name, right?
  2. I only drink my coffee black. And I am addicted. Hence my handle on the ‘gram- @jackiecuppacoffee
  3. I read a lot. I average about 50 books a year. I love Goodreads because I can easily keep track of what I have read, am currently reading and want to read.
  4. I’m really bad at this. I cannot for the life of me write about myself. But I am trying!
  5. I moved to New York City for the last semester of my senior year in college for an internship at Seventeen/Cosmopolitan magazines. I met my two best friends there and I have no idea what I would do without them. They say your college friends are your friends for life, and they may not have gone to college with me, but they will absolutely be there for the rest of my life. Whether they like it or not.
  6.  I recently received my results from 23 and Me and found out that I am not quite as Greek as I thought. I am about 20% Italian, which isn’t a surprise, but what is a surprise is that according to the results, I am about 20% British and Irish and 19% French and German.
  7. I can’t burp. This is my go to “fun fact” whenever I am asked to share something bizarre or interesting about myself. 
  8. I have lived in my hometown my whole life aside from a brief stint in NYC and of course college.
  9. If I hadn’t studied communications with a focus on journalism and public and professional writing in college, I would have studied criminology. 
  10. I have one older brother.
  11. I have four tattoos. 
  12. I have started and deleted maybe four blogs before finally sticking with this one. I was too shy and embarrassed to really let myself out there, I was also convinced that no one would read it because who cares what I have to say? Clearly I no longer think that way.
  13. When I was in first grade, I was convinced I would marry Aaron Carter.
  14. I LOVE shark tooth hunting. I really want to become a certified diver and find a giant Megalodon tooth.
  15. I am a horror movie junkie. Although, if anything bad happens to a dog in a movie, I will immediately shut it down.
