Since this website is still relatively new I thought it would be fun to make a few posts to introduce myself in a little more depth than I have before. This tag is more about my personal life than books, but I have a few bookish get to know me type tags up my sleeve for the near future!
Nicknames: I don’t really have any. It’s hard to come up with a nickname for Sarah.
Birthday: May 30th
Star Sign: Gemini
Occupation: Graduate student and historical interpreter
Hair color: Dirty blonde
Hair length: A couple of inches below my shoulder. That’s actually really short for me! I’ve kept my hair long as far back as I can remember.
Eye color: Blue
Best feature: Probably my hair?
Braces: Nope! I was one of the lucky few that didn’t need ’em.
Piercings: Just normal earlobe piercings (which I didn’t get until I was 20)
Tattoos: None, but one day I might get something super, super small.
Right or left: I’m a lefty!
Holiday: I just had a very American moment where I had to go read someone else’s answer to this question to realize holiday meant vacation here and not, like, Christmas. Anyways, my dad owned a pretty demanding business for most of my childhood so we’d just hit the beach for 4 or 5 days and stay at a campground. The only time I’ve been more than a few hours from home was when I went to D.C. in the 11th grade. So maybe that was my first real holiday?
Best Friend: So this is kind of weird but all I can remember is that I had a best friend named Amena in the first grade who was from Pakistan. She was my best friend when 9/11 happened and I remember my mom being worried for her family but obviously I didn’t know why at the time. Other than that I had a few best friends in elementary school that I’m still in touch with today.
Award: A medal for the mini-olympics at my gymnastics gym. I started when I was 3!
Sport: Gymnastics (see above lol)
Concert: The Zac Brown Band
TV shows: I like SO MANY TV SHOWS. So instead of agonizing over picking one, I’ll just list all of them that I can think of: The Office, Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy, Little House on the Prairie, Frontier, The Punisher, Sons of Anarchy, Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, Army Wives, M*A*S*H, Avatar the Last Airbender and Legends of Korra, Rick and Morty, Peaky Blinders, and Shameless but THERE ARE SO. MANY. MORE.
Color: Aqua, but I really like that dusty purple-y lilac color, emerald green, and sapphire blue too.
Song: At the moment, The Night We Met by Lord Huron, Sunflower by Post Malone, and Trip by Ella Mai
Restaurant: I don’t think I have a favorite restaurant
Shop: This is the lamest answer ever but I really like Amazon and Target.
Books: Little House on the Prairie (and anything that has to do with it), Harry Potter (and anything that has to do with it), Code Name Verity, the Love Comes Softly series, Longbourn’s Songbird, anything Nicholas Sparks, and again, SO. MANY. MORE.
Shoes: Preferably none. If that isn’t an option, definitely flip flops.
Single or Taken: Single!
Eating: Popcorn and a Dr. Pepper
Thinking About: The gingerbread house I’m building once I’m done with this post and alllllll the Christmas gifts I still need to make.
Watching: Frontier season 3
Wearing: Pajama shorts and a tank top, but I’m under a heated blanket lol
Want Children: Maybe someday. I’m really drawn to the idea of adoption but I’d be open to having some of my own.
Want to be married: Someday, if the right person comes along.
Careers in mind: I’d like to eventually get to the point where I can support myself with my writing, but I’d also like to stay involved with historical interpretation and education.
Where you want to live: I love living in North Carolina and I honestly wouldn’t mind staying here for the rest of my life. I would like to move closer to the beach though!
Do You Believe In…
God: Yes. I would identify as a Christian if I had to put my religion in a box but I’m pretty open minded about other beliefs.
Love at first sight: Not really. Maybe a strong infatuation that can quickly grow into love.
Aliens: Yes! It seems pretty ridiculous to assume that we’re the only living beings in the universe.
Soul Mates: Yes, both romantic and platonic.
Yourself: Of course, but just like everyone else I have my less-confident days.
