Okay, let’s go back to 2006 for a second– who remembers those MySpace bulletin board days where everyone would fill out those fun surveys about themselves?  yea, I know I do.  I would take 45 minutes from my precious life filling out 120 questions in these surveys that no one probably read except for my “TOP 8” hah.  A conversation with one of my girlfriends inspired me to do a post on something like it and share 25 random things you probably didn’t know about me. So… let’s start with the basics. here we go.

  1. “Sakura” is my real name and it means cherry blossom in Japanese.  A perfect segway to fact #2.
  2. I’m half Japanese & half Irish.
  3. I was born in San Diego, CA and spent the majority of my childhood (2-10yrs old) growing up in Tokyo.  When I was 11 years old, my family and I moved to good ol’ Fallon, Nevada until I graduated from high school.  Yes, I was a military brat.
  4. Proud to be an Arizona State University Sun Devil.
  5. I was/am a Theta and I loved every second of college.
  6. I started using Photoshop when I was 12 years old- all thanks to my mama who was a graphic designer at the time.  I would use Photoshop & Illustrator to create customized MySpace profiles (LOL).
  7. I’m a big sister to my best friend, Sumire.
  8. I hate confrontations, but have learned that it’s necessary at times.
  9. I have an obsession with lashes. Yes, I have lash extensions- since I was 17! eeeeek.
  10. My first blog I started was with my best friend, Becca, in college and it was called “The Bestest”.  We both were just too busy to keep up with it.
  11. I have never owned anything with animal prints until this year.
  12. I can speak Japanese, but I don’t like it when people put me on the spot and ask me to speak it.
  13. NO plans for kids, but I’ve always wanted to raise my (future) family in Texas.
  14. Spring is my favorite season.
  15. I cannot be peer pressured.
  16. I used to cry to my parents in middle school & high school, because I would get made fun of for my big lips.
  17. I’m a huge believer in learning to be independent.  I think it’s important to be content with being alone.
  18. I always thought I had a good grasp of knowing who I was until this last year– 2014 was a year of reflection for me.
  19. I love my grandma more than anything.
  20. I grew up dancing all my life.
  21. One talent I wish I had is to be able to sing. When I say that I can’t sing, I mean it.
  22. I’ve always wanted to go to Bora Bora.
  23. I love love love kids and although I can most definitely wait, I can’t wait to have a family of my own.
  24. I’m a workaholic. One way for me to “not work”, but feel productive is pinning on my Pinterest account with a cup of coffee.
  25. I’ve always had the urge to move to a bigger city one more time in my life, before I settle down.

Well, that was fun. xo
