Get to know Becka: 29 Facts About Me

Since I don’t often share much about myself, I thought it would be fun to post some random facts to get to know me a little better. Find out everything from my greatest fear to my overly small shoe size!

Did You Know:

  1. My full name is Rebecca, but only family and my long time friends call me that
  2. Don’t call me Becky – Becka, Bec or Bexx is good
  3. I’m a lefty for everything execpt cutting with scissors – I taught myself how to use my right hand because left handed scissors are the worst
  4. I’m terrified of live fish even though nothing makes me happier than spending summer weekends on the lake – whatever you do, don’t yell “FISH” while I’m in the water
  5. I didn’t start cooking until I went gluten free in 2012, my family is still very confused about this.
  6. I’m very uncoordinated so sports have never been my thing, but give me a pencil and paper and I’d be happy drawing for hours
  7. I’m obsessed with podcasts because I love learning about random things – anything and everything!
  8. I was born 6 weeks pre-maturally which has affected my health in some ways
  9. Other than a basic photography class in high school, I didn’t get into photography until I started GG at the end of 2014. I used an iPhone for all my photos up until a year ago.
