How I Met Your Mother
Zaria Lia Richardson
30 Day Challenge
Day 01 – Introduce yourself, in great detail
• Name, Age, Birthday, Physical traits, Ethnicity, etc.
Well, hello there. The name is Zaria Lia Richardson. Nice to meet you. So I guess this is my chance to describe everything about myself.
To start out, I’m twenty-three, with my birthday less than a month away (July 1st). When I think about my birthday, I don’t see any significance to it any more. After turning twenty-one, there are no real milestones that mean anything. When you turn eighteen, you’re an adult. When you turn twenty-one, you can drink. But after that? There’s not much else. This line of thinking may sound depressing, but I at least celebrate my birthday unlike other people.
Moving on, I am extremely short, and I’m not exaggerating. I stand at 5’2” which means heels are my best friend. My feet have gotten used to the pain and torture of wearing heels for hours on end. If I don’t wear my heels, I look like a little munchkin, which is not a compliment in my world. In my world, looking tall is equated to looking powerful and confident. The other reason my height sucks—both my parents and my brother are tall. It’s freakishly weird that somehow I turned out short when I had everything going for me to be tall. I at least inherited my mother’s curves, so I’m not completely skinny and flat. I have some (good) meat on my bones.
Along with that, I also inherited the long brown hair, which now has blonde streaks in it due to the hours I spend surfing in the morning. It hangs in waves down my back when I’m not pulling it into a pony-tail or tucking it into a hat. During the summer months, my skin tans into a beautiful golden color, while in the winter it reverts back to a pale color which I absolutely hate. Of all my features though, my absolute favorite is my eyes. They are this bluish-green color, mostly green/hazel and I just love them.
Both my parents were born and raised in California, and never dreamed of moving elsewhere. On my mother’s side, my ancestry hails from Italy primarily, while my dad is a bit of a mutt. His lineage comes from Ireland, Britain, and a little bit of Italian and Spanish. Some of their siblings have settled around the world, so I have family in Brazil, Japan, Australia, almost every continent except Antarctica.
This is clearly not the end, so au revoir until next time!
