Eleven Facts about OurMisoLife(rs)

  1. We started this blog because we felt like there wasn’t enough attention being given to misophonia, a neurological condition one of us has that affects how a sufferer responds to certain trigger noises. We also have been struggling to start a family for years now, and needed an outlet to share our thoughts and talk about what it means to pursue happiness despite life’s circumstances.
  2. If we could spend the rest of our days living in a cabin in the woods near a mountain lake, we’d do it in a heartbeat.
  3. Contrary to what we thought as kids, brussel sprouts are one of our favorite veggies.
  4. We’re one of the only 20-something couples we know who moved away from the city and LOVES the suburbs.
  5. One of us is a cat person, and one of us has become a cat person by marriage.  
  6. If we lived in the country, we’d probably have like a million cats. And a self-sustaining farm to grow all our own food.
  7. Cooking bagels is really hard. We tried once in college, failed miserable, and have been afraid of boiling dough ever since.
  8. We make really, really good steak. Suppose the Texas roots are to thank for that one.
  9. One of us gets up at 4 a.m. every day (but also goes to bed at like 9).
  10. We almost never have the same taste in movies or TV shows.
  11. Autumn is our favorite season, ever.

Eleven Questions from Blog to Breathe

  1. Biggest dream EVER
    • Kelly: If dreams could come true we’d both be Hogwarts graduates and bffs with Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
    • Billy: Lead a dystopian revolution and become the leader of the new world order (so, I just want to star in the Hunger Games).
  2. Toughest decision you ever had to make
    • We’ve had to make a lot of tough decisions, and they all had to do with moving. I’ll say moving from the city has been the hardest yet.
  3. Top 5 destinations you want to visit before you die
    • Prague
    • Vienna
    • Costa Rica
    • Alaska
    • Sweden
  4. Top 5 dishes you want to try
    • Authentic sheperd’s pie from an old English pub
    • Maine lobster (in Maine)
    • Guacamole bacon-cheddar steak burger (it’s what I want right now!)
    • Spanish Tapas (you guessed it – in Spain)
    • Shark, because why not?
  5. Top 5 destinations you don’t really feel like visiting
    • India (way too many people)
    • Greenland (too cold and too isolated)
    • Siberia (same reason as above)
    • Egypt (I hate being sandy and super hot)
    • Saudi Arabia (again it’s the sand/heat combo)
  6. The kind of people that make you happy
    • People that are honest about what’s going on with them – and that truly listen to others.
  7. Staying with locals or hotels
    • We’ve done the local thing (kinda) twice – B&B on honeymoon in Anguilla and then Airbnb in Estes Park. Loved it!
  8. Car, train, bicycle, foot?
    • Kelly: foot – I love walking!
    • Billy: Bicycle
  9. One last plane ticket ..what destination will you choose?
    • Kelly: Scotland (it just seems so magical – probably because of HP)
    • Billy: I’m with Kelly on Scotland.
  10. A dog or a cat? Umm, see above.
  11. 2 books that changed your life?
    • Kelly: Harry Potter. Seriously. Showed me the power of fantasy and good storytelling. And The Brothers Karamazov.
    • Billy: Definitely HP, but I also read this business and creative thinking book a few years back called The Opposable Mind.
