Very True and Borderline Embarassing Facts

As the title pretty clearly implies, I am here to share with you a few things about me that you PROBABLY don't know already. And, yes, you guessed it, some of them are borderline embarrassing.

I used to eat raw bacon as a child. And I don't mean just, like, floppy barely cooked bacon. I mean "hm, nobody's home... I'll just snag this bacon from the fridge and take it to my room for a snack". This is probably the #1 thing that Chad can NOT let go of. 
(for what it's worth, I now enjoy my bacon crispy... not raw)

In 6th grade, I was a fat kid, definitely NOT popular. I also became ADDICTED to the movie Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century. 
Now, I watched it pretty much on repeat from the time it came out. (And by "watched on repeat" I mean I recorded it on VHS with my VCR and would watch it, then rewind it, and watch it again). I knew it front and back, I would say all the words as they were coming up (I'm sure everybody in my family LOVED that phase of my life)
Anyways, to put the icing on the cake, about a month or two after I hit my full blown Zenon addiction, all the popular, skinny girls (whom I had previously been friends with in elementary school) similarly discovered the phenomenon of my homegirl Z and talked about it all the time as though they had just discovered pinterest or something, and I would sit there, staring at them and wanting to scream "I found her first BITCHES!!!!"
(of course I did NOT scream this at them, but lets just say that those little hussies did NOT have their VHS cover bedazzled with starburst wrappers and glitter... not legit fans)

While other girls were all hooked on Backstreet Boys and N'Sync, I decided to focus my teenage love on a different kind of boy band... one that took the genre name a little more literally.
Enter Hanson.
Seriously though,the little fella to the left. How could you NOT get butterflies? Every pre-teen girls dreamboat.

I used to be scared to sleep in my room probably 4 nights a week. And I don't think I was really that young either. And eventually my parents wouldn't let me sleep on their floor anymore. So what did i do? I made myself a nest. Right outside their bedroom door. Yep. I'd drag all my bedding out into the hallway and sleep right outside their door so my that mom would practically crush my skull if she didn't realize I was there soon enough.

So there you have it my internet friends. A few things that you likely didn't know (and also likely did not WANT to know) about me.

Um, nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to Zenon. I was OBSESSED. Still am?
Um, making a nest outside your parents room? I'm dying. Only because I picture you still doing it up until the day your mom moved, haha.
