18 Random Fact About Me

My name for those of you who don’t know it Andrea Escobar and I started Follow Our Passion after having people around me,  ask how I was managing my bipolar disorder naturally. Not only that but I found a way of combining my three passions, English + Psychology and of course cooking. I wanted to show people that food is not only nourishing and delicious but also healing. I have found a balance with an illness that I was given when I was eighteen, food, a healthy lifestyle and cannabis have played a large role in keeping my mood disorder + PCOS balanced and healthy.

I thought I would share a bit more about myself on here, maybe include something you may or may not know about me. If you have more questions, feel free to comment below and I will do my best to answer!  Here it is 18 random ass fuck facts about me. LOVE YOU.!

18 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT

  1. I have always dreamed of living in a small town- think Gilmore Girls- where I could have a bed and breakfast.
  2. When I was a senior in high school, my teacher asked us to create a blog and write on it daily for a month and then write about the experience.

  3. In high school, I started a cheese club, a healthy eating club and even taught cooking classes to kids. YEAH…. my love for cooking and health goes way back.
  4. I have a really hard time when I am in a sea of people where I know no one. I am a huge introvert and extremely shy, regardless of my bubbly personality. Once I am comfortable everything changes.
  5. I have a black Persian cat that has been with me since I was 19 his name is Drake.
  6. I am such a huge homebody and always prefer staying in over going out. Living the best life for me is staying home, eating an edible or consuming cannabis in some way, workout, take a bath, eat tons of chocolate and siete chips while watching something on Netflix.
