FF – Random Facts about moi




1.  I’m 1/8th Chinese.  I know you might not see it here:


but this is my grandpa.



2.  I went to college for Computer Science.  Then switched my major to Business Marketing halfway through.  Got a job as an analyst and ended up switching over to IT a couple of years in.  Hmm, what’s next?



3.  I often have a recurring dream where I wake up back in Russia and everything that’s happened in my life so far has been a dream.  What are the chances that this is true?  And where did I learn to speak English?



4.  I speak fluent English, Russian and French.  Okay, my French is not-so-good anymore since I have no practice, but with a little help, I can usually pick it back up.  I went to  a math and language school back in Moscow that started a second language in second grade and a third one in 8th grade (that second language would have been English but I moved before we got there).  Parlez-vous Francais?



5.  I’ve always been and always will be a tomboy.  Sure, it’s hard to see since I’ve gotten into make-up and pretty clothes, but ask my mom how long it took to get me into a dress when I was a kid and she’d just shake her head in frustration.  Through most of my life my closest friends have been boys (with the exception of a few bestie girlfriends) and in college I chose to live with boys.

  1. Love that last picture of you! The contrast between your fancy dress and the cigar is too funny. :)

  2. I literally have no idea what i was going to comment last night.

    My mom is a tomboy, though, it's awesome, she taught us to climb trees and play sports, so Addison has that to look forward to :).

  3. Tomboy 100% here too. I had a farmset instead of dolls growing up. I guess my childhood was preparing me for my grown up life living on the farm helping my husband.

  5. This is so much fun! I love knowing these little things.

    I am always so impressed by people who are multi-lingual. And je parle francais un petit peu!

  6. I didn't know the Chinese part, but I know a bunch of these were why we initially connected! Yay for former to present computer geeks, French and Russian, and tomboy-ness!
