The Six Truths Tag

I was tagged by my friend Candice of Just Stay Lovely to do a 'Six Truths' about me tag. Because a lot of truths about me are pretty evident from my blog (I would die to go to fashion week, I bleed maize and blue, etc.), I'm going to go for ones that are less known.

1. The number one thing on my bucket list right now is to climb Kilimanjaro.
My bucket list varies greatly in levels of difficulty, and this is by far number one. Skydiving used to be at the top, but I was able to cross that off after I went to Switzerland (see picture below). I don't know how I come up with these things, but once I decide that it's something I really want to experience, it will happen at some point.

2. If I could go back in time to any point in history, it would be to attend Woodstock.
My good friends know this about me, but not many other people do. I have a ridiculous obsession with Woodstock. The event, the music, the culture, everything. I own upwards of 20 books on the music festival, as well as the 4-disc DVD box set of the concert. I also have an enormous painting of the original Woodstock poster hanging above my bed. Something about it just absolutely fascinates me. As my birthday present yesterday, my awesome boyfriend even bought me an original certified Woodstock ticket, which if you know me at all is about one of the coolest presents I've ever gotten.

3. 'Hotel California' is my favorite song of all time.
It's been my favorite song since I was about 14, and it hasn't changed. 'Some dance to remember, some dance to forget' is also my favorite lyric in any song of all time. Cheesy perhaps, but whatever. It was also my high school senior yearbook quote, if I remember correctly.

4. A good number of my guy friends unabashedly come to me for legitimate fashion advice.
This has been one of my favorite things about writing a fashion & sports blog. Because there are sports post sprinkled in among the fashion posts, my guy friends are on my blog an okay amount, and then they will inevitably run across something fashion related. Now that I've had this blog for a few years, even my guy friends consider me a fashion resource, whether it be on something they're going to buy or something that they own and are trying to wear later that night. I don't discriminate in terms of my love of fashion; a well dressed guy is the way to my heart.

5. I hate showering, and I wish I could zap myself clean.
Showering may be one of my least favorite activities. Even though I was a swimmer for almost my entire life until college, I hate being wet. I know, it makes no sense. It's the going from dry-to-wet and wet-to-dry that I hate. Once I'm in the water and I'm going to stay that way for a while, it's fine. But when I'm in the shower, I know I'm getting out in 5 minutes anyway and it just irritates me to no end. If I could have one magical power, it would be to zap myself clean and never have to take a shower again.

6. My favorite word is 'passion'.
I know it's probably weird to have a favorite word, but whatever. It's always been a word I've strived to have present in my life at all times. I truly love being passionate about things; it's what brought me to my legal practice, to writing, to my love of sports, and it has been something I've always believed is super important to have in your life in some form. One of my favorite quotes of all time is 'a lack of passion is fatal'.
