I have had a lot going on lately and I am tired of being serious, so today’s post is going to be something fun!
When I was thinking through what would be fun, I went to the “Google Machine” to get some ideas. I came across Ashley Pitt’s blog A Lady Goes West and she did a post called A 20-Question “Get to Know Me Better” Survey. Done! I LOVE reading these type of things so I thought it might be fun for you guys to know a little bit more about me! You know all about my weightloss and fitness life but what about the rest of it… Now you get to see a glimpse into the other sides!
Are you ready, let the 20 questions start now…
1. What’s your whole name?
Melissa Jillane Boser
2. Are you named after anyone?
Yes, my Godmother/Aunt. Her first name is Jillane (pronounced jill-lane)
3. Do you have any siblings?
Yes, a younger brother who is my “big” brother!
4. Where did you grow up?
North Dakota! It has changed a lot since I grew up there but it was an amazing experience. There is so much more to the state then most people think of when they think of North Dakota!
5. What activities did you do in high school?
When I think back to high school I realize I was really busy! I was a cheerleader, I cheered one year for basketball, two for wrestling, and three for Football. I was also on the yearbook, the speech team, in the Future Business Leaders of America, Future Homemakers of America, and drama.
6. Where did you go to college?
Oh boy where did I go to college. Hope you are sitting down because the list is long… I went to North Dakota State College of Science where I got an Associates of Science for Pharmacy Technician. In between my freshman and sophomore year at NDSCS, I went to summer school at Minot State University to get my chemistry requirements done. After graduating with my associates I moved to North Dakota State University to get my Bachelors of University Studies with a focus in Business and Women’s Studies. Then I took a few years off before I attended the University of Mary for by Masters of Business Administration. Yep, that is four schools and who knows maybe one day it will be five if I decide to get my PhD.
7. What activities did you do in college?
I wasn’t active in college like I was in high school. I guess I would say my activity was socializing! I made some amazing friendship!
8. What did you study in college?
A little bit of everything! See question 6.
9. What was your first job out of college?
I was a manager at a tanning salon named Tan Your Buns and Travel. Yes, you read that correctly! It was a fun job but looking back it probably was not the most healthy of jobs!
10. What kind of music do you like?
I listen to a little of everything! But my favorite band is Breaking Benjamin.
11. What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?
I would love to be a better golfer! I pretend now but I would love to be good at it so I was comfortable to join a league!
12. What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?
I had no idea and honestly still don’t! However, I started college to be a dental hygienist. I found early on that wasn’t going to work for me for so many reasons!
13. What’s the biggest project on your to-do list right now?
Getting Fit to Find Myself! There are so many little things that I would like to get done to make the blog a little bit better!
14. Do you have any irrational fears?
Irrational fears, not really. Rational fear (in my mind), BIRDS!!!! They scare the living H-E-double hockey sticks out of me!
15. Have you ever traveled outside the country? If so, where and when?
Yes, I have been to Canada too many times to count and to Mexico once. Justin and I went to Puerto Vallarta in November 2013.

Justin and I will be going to Seattle in July for my brothers wedding. Then in September, we are going to Las Vegas and hopefully in October to Hawaii!

No, I took two years of Spanish in high school but didn’t keep it up.
18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?
Creativity, I wish I could think outside of the box when it comes to anything crafty!
19. What’s something that you wish you did more of?
Relaxing, I can always find something to do but I need to start taking more time for myself!
20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?
Oh wow, so many things! I would love to get my personal trainer/group exercise certification, blog full time, and get my PhD in Women’s/Gender Studies. See I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up!
Well, there you go! Did you learn anything that surprised you? Hope you guys enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it!
