Getting To Know Me

Stolen from Kristen

1. Are you named after someone?


My dad wanted to name me Danielle but my mom thought that if they shortened my name to something like Dani & she was trying to talk to one of us (my dad's name is Dan) we might get mixed up.  So Brianne (Bre-Ann) it is.  However, it sort of back fired because Brianne & Dan sound awfully close sometimes so a lot of times we'd both respond or neither would.

2. When was the last time you cried?

Surprisingly I don't know.  It's even possible that the last time I cried was when I said goodbye to Mr. Midwest.

3. Do you have kids?


4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

"ahhhh I don't know. I think I am a good friend, but I also think I am quite annoying. ha." - Kristen but I 100% agree

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

"I don't feel guilty about anything really, except rare binge eating sessions."  - Kristen but true.

6. Do you like your handwriting?

No.  I have pretty crappy handwriting & my "signature" is 100x worse.  My mom used to comment that maybe I should have been a doctor because my signature is so bad.

7. What is your favourite cereal?

Lucky Charms & Chocolate Special K

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Their smile & eyes.

9. Do you have any pets?

In Texas, no.  In Minnesota, a dog (Jack)

10. Scary movies or happy endings?

I do not do scary movies as a general rule.  I have to be with someone & staying the night with them for it to even be considered.

11. Favorite TV Show?

This past year I didn't have cable so I really didn't watch TV.  Every so often I would catch up on the shows that I used to DVR (Hawaii Five-0, NCIS: LA, Nashville, Chicago Fire, & The Walking Dead.)  I used to say that TWD was my favorite but I'm getting over it.

12. Summer or Winter?

Summer.  I hate the cold.  Even though I grew up in central MN I never got used to the cold.  I appreciate that Texas doesn't have what I would consider a true winter.

13. Hugs or Kisses?

Hugs...I guess. Honestly, I'll hug my friends sometimes but unless you're my parents or the person I'm seeing I'm not big on either.  Blame it on my Minnesota roots.  I definitely don't go around kissing everyone though.

14. What's the furthest you've been away from home?


15. Do you have any special talents?

No.  I'm not awesome at anything.  I'm just mediocre at various things.

16. Where were you born?

Central Minnesota

17. What are your hobbies?

Planning shit & listening to music.  I need more hobbies, especially in the summer

18. What color are you eyes?

Blue  The change colors sort of though.  They go anywhere from gray to bright blue. 

19. Favourite movie?

Friday Night Lights, Dazed & Confused, 8 Seconds, & Mean Girls.  I can, & will, pretty much quote the whole film while I'm watching it.

20. What color is your car?


21. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Since about the 1st grade I wanted to be a teacher.  Other things I thought I might want to be up until I graduated high school: lawyer, interior designer, criminologist, & architect.  There was a point in college when I almost changed my major to travel & tourism because I wanted to be a travel agent but figured I was so close to graduating that I should just stick with teaching & give it a shot.  Now with 4 years of teaching under my belt I'm planning on starting grad school sometime within the next year for communications so that I can do marketing/pr/social media.


  1. So get this, I am a former social studies teacher but now work in healthcare in communications management....much better money but I miss teaching at times. Loved hearing more about sweet you!!

    1. I didn't know that! I honestly make pretty decent money as far as teaching salaries go. Like, I'd more than likely be taking a pay cut initially to go into something else. There are certain things I'm afraid of missing but I've told myself that I could always go back.

  2. I love these posts. So fun learning more about you. I too don't have any special talents. Well, maybe at ignoring people and I do have a great bitch resting face.

  3. From this Comm major.. GO GO COMM DEGREE!
    I never thought I'd end up in a tech writer position, but I really enjoy it. I was always afraid that if I went into marketing that I'd end up dealing with sales and stupid customers, but my last "job I wanted" in college was magazine layout editor.

  4. Haha, at least someone likes the Texas heat! It's so crazy hot to me!
