25 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T (EVEN WANT TO) KNOW ABOUT ME PLUS THE ONE THING YOU DO*
I was born and grew up on the east coast, New England for the majority.
I lived in Texas for five years before making my way to California.
Even though both my parents are Swedish, they did not teach me the language.
I’m wearing my boyfriend’s glasses in the pictures above but I have perfect vision.
On that note, I have desperately wanted glasses all my life and would purposely flunk eye exams in elementary school with the hope I would be given specs. This did not work.
I am scared of driving so I try to take the subway whenever I can.
I’m also really scared of escalators so I will opt for the stairs/elevator when available.
I am 5’10” but I don’t feel particularly tall until I see myself in pictures alongside normal people. Then I feel like Godzilla.
I love buying makeup, have a ton of it but actually wear very little.
Sometimes, I like to draw.
Sometimes, I like to sew.
Sometimes, I like to write.
Most times, I like to stretch out on the couch and watch tv/play video games.
I went to CalArts and studied character animation but did not finish because art school is mad expensive, yo.
I don’t really remember what my natural hair color is. Dark blonde? Maybe. I think.
My eyes are more grey than blue.
I love seeing movies in the theater on opening night.
I cried at the end of Final Fantasy X. Yes, that’s a video game.
Every time I go to the hairdresser, my stylist makes me read a note I wrote to myself reminding me that I shouldn’t cut my hair short or get bangs, no matter how good an idea I think it is at the time.
I’m very gullible. If you end your statement with ‘..for real’, I will believe it.
I do UX design for a television network. I like it. It’s neat!
I broke both my legs skiing but not at the same time.
I used to sleep in very late but now I naturally wake up between 6:30/7a every day. I find this weird and somewhat disconcerting.
I am notorious for my typing errors and they are a constant source of entertainment for my friends.
Cake is pretty much the best thing on the planet. I cannot say this enough: CAKE IS PRETTY MUCH THE BEST THING ON THE PLANET.
and last but not least, the one thing you probably give two figs about: my name is Nina Edlund!
* This list was originally composed of 25 things that you probably didn’t even want to know about me. However, it was pointed out that despite this flurry of useless information, I failed to mentioned my name even once and that was silly since I post art here. Therefore, this became 26 things you probably didn’t even want to know about me. Or, really, 25 things you probably didn’t even want to know about me and one thing that you do. Taa-daa!
