What things do people incorrectly assume about you based on the way you look?
Have fun with this one… take it in whatever direction you like. I thought about this today… I wasn’t exactly part of the popular crowd when I was young (in high school specifically). I did the “smart kid” things. I was editor of the literary magazine, read a lot, hung out with the English teachers (nerd!), and so on. The closest I came to popular was when my graduating class voted me “Best to Bring Home to Mom.”
All that to say I have my belly button pierced. My fiancee always says how funny it is that I would have this because it’s not really characteristic of a “nerd.”
Also, when I got to college I started out studying Chemistry. I had a guy ask me what I was studying and when I told him he said I was too pretty to be doing that and should be looking into culinary arts “or something.”
What’s the most common misconception about you?
