1. I grew up listening to country music. There was to be no other genre of music played under my father's roof. When I was five my mom bought her and I Gloria Estefan's tape Cuts Both Ways. That was my first exposure to non-country music. I loved her album Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me. I could sing along to one of her songs any day. It took me awhile to allow country music back into my heart, but I enjoy a good foulk- county song, and a singer with some twang.
2. I enjoy all sorts of music these days, but if I had to pick my top five favorites, here they are in no particular order: Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Jurassic 5, The Dirty Projectors, the Pixies, and Mos Def.
3. When I was a kid I wanted to be just like Shirley Temple. Singer, Dancer, Model, Actor, all around awesomely talented little girl. As an adult, I'm glad I wasn't a child star. Plus, I don't have a speck of talent for any of the afore mentioned star qualities.
4. I prefer to spend my waking hours outdoors. When the weather isn't great for days on end I forget this fact. Then when the weather gets nice again, it takes me a bit to remember I'm happier when I'm not trapped in by four walls.
5. I rarely wear make-up.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks This Is Me. Have a lovely Saturday, and Happy DIYing, chris!
