Dakota is so Random
Today I thought it would be fun to share some random facts about myself. I don't know why, no one asked, and yet...here we are. So without further ado, or I guess, any ado, are some random facts about me.
I am obsessed with Jim Jones and Jonestown
There is something about this horrific historical event that absolutely haunts me. It scares me that one person can influence so much power over such a large group of people. I don’t know if it is a learn from other’s mistakes thing, or a facing head-on something that crushes me thing, or what, but I read and watch everything I can about this issue. And yes, I still sob every time. I am not research immune. Those poor babies haunt my dreams.
I have never seen the ocean
Believe me when I tell you that I am not proud of this fact. This isn’t one of those weird Midwest things where I consider it a badge of honor that the largest body of water I’ve ever seen is a lake I give directions to by pointing at my hand. (Yes, I’m from Michigan.) I want nothing more than to see an ocean. Any of them. But I’m very much in the middle of the country, far, far, far from any coast. And I don’t get to travel a lot, so the opportunity has never presented itself. It’s a goal and a dream. But as of June 2019, I still haven’t seen one.
I write in insane bursts.
Like…insane. I will write 10-20,000 words in a single weekend, then not touch my book again for a month. Then, like no time has passed, I’ll bust out another 25,000 in two days. It drives everyone crazy. Including myself. I mean, if I just wrote 2,000 words every single day, I’d finish a book in the same amount of time. But for some reason, this is the method that works for me. I have to be able to devote whole days to this process instead of just a single hour a few times a week, which can be inconvenient, what with the three jobs, the husband and the kids, but what am I gonna do? This is how I thrive, so I make it work.
My favorite game is Drop Your Last Meme
I play this all the time over on my Facebook page. Be sure to sign up because I desperately want to see the last Meme on your phone. Be warned, my friends play with me and they are filthy animals, so you may see some pretty offensive stuff sometimes. Fair warning.
Well, that's a start. I'm sure there are a million weird, random facts I could share about myself, but we'll leave it here for now. Thanks for hanging out and we'll see you soon.
