    Uh…Can I say WOW, Lauren? In just those 10 things I’ve learned more about you and want to get deets on even more stuff. As you can see from my list below, I couldn’t just choose one because I’m so fascinated.

    I have spent the night in a public library, a museum, and a convent(Can’t wait to hear more about this and and am very intrigued)
    I’ve had surgery in both of my ears (two different surgeries)
    I’ve met Ed Sheeran (Say What? – I love him!!!!!!!!!)
    I’ve always had to wear a digital watch because I can’t tell time well
    I’ve been blurbed in various books – but not usually under my name
    I was published in I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets: Six-Word Memoirs by Teens Famous & Obscure (Where can we get this book???? Yay – you’re a published author!! – Very cool!

    Great post and Happy Monday to you!

  2. This is great and actually provides quite some info about you. You can definitely do a post about musicals and your love from music as it seems coming from your family driving a very long road to go attend a festival. Would also love to know how you got publish ( the number 10) and the steps to reach this. Very fun post!

  3. Ohhhhh. I love these kind of posts so much and am I allowed to quote these 10 things, because I want to know more about everything? haha. I am a bit more curious about that night spent in a library, because that sounds like the plot for a very cool book haha 🙂

  4. Pretty cool stuff to read considering this is my first read of your blog! Where did you meet Ed Sheeran? He’s supposed to be really down to earth and a lovely guy.

  5. Omg this was so fun to read!!Also I’m dying to know your ed sheeran story; I adore him! I hope he was as nice in person as he is in my head 😊 And also about the festival your parents drove to NJ to attend 🙂 what a fun prompt!

  6. Ooh this is fun! I’d love to hear more about #1- why you stayed in those places and how it went. Also you met Ed Sheeran? Cool! And the music festival seems like it would be a fun post!

  7. What a fun idea!! You have gotten the opportunity to do some cool stuff. I agree with whoever said you could do a blog post on each on of them!!

  8. I often have trouble with numbers too. It’s a form of numerical dyslexia I believe. If someone tells me a phone number to write down, my brain often jumbles around the numbers between hearing the number and putting it on paper. The same if I’m copying a number as well. It’s something I need to check, double check and check again to make sure I have the right bill code when paying bills or I’m not calling a wrong number which happens almost every time with me. I’m absolutely intrigued about being blurbed under another name, are you moonlighting as a book critic elsewhere? The mystery! ♡♡♡

  9. I love RENT too, and I was lucky enough to take a class to see Spring Awakening when it was still Off Broadway with Lea Michele and Jonathan Goff! Amazing!

  10. Oh this is so cool Lauren! How awesome about the blurbing and that you were published! And spending the night in a library sounds pretty great too! 🙂

  11. So much fun to read these! And can I say how jealous I am about the blurbing bit, as well as meeting Ed Sheeran? Wow! I need to save this post and do one for myself. Although neither of those can I say. The closest is that I have been mentioned in the acknowledgements by authors or had a photo I took at BEA in a book about an author.

  12. Wish I had participated in this post. Fun! I feel like I am in the presence of a star…being that you have been mentioned in books and all. Kind of crazy and very rare! Interesting that you struggled some with telling time. I can’t divide. Especially when zeroes are involved!

    Aw I love this post!! At least you can wear a watch….I’m weird about having stuff around my wrists and even though my Grandparents gave me a gorgeous watch, it drives me crazy on my wrist and I only wear it a few times a year. And spending the night in those public places?! Oh my goodness, wow! Thanks for the smile today! ♥
