50 Things About Me

So I'm borrowing this idea from someone else. I hope they don't mind. I thought it would be fun.

  1. I HATE talking on the phone, but I sometimes am able to enjoy it when talking to a new person or someone I really want to get to know better.
  2. I am absolutely terrified of lightening and thunder -- so much so that I have been known to cry over a thunderstorm.
  3. I am 30 yrs. old, but only for 17 days and 54 minutes.
  4. I am kind of shy, but I am also pretty sociable. I prefer being around others to being alone.
  5. People think I have it all together, but I really don't.
  6. My master's degree is in counseling.
  7. It really bothers me that no one I know has ever asked my thoughts on ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, etc...
  8. I like to eat -- a LOT.
  9. I wish I ate healthier. I try to eat very healthy, but fail miserably when Ed's away.
  10. I used to be very anal retentive about some things.
  11. I think personality tests are rubbish -- same with that book, "The Five Love Languages."
  12. I have a lot of really strong opinions. I tend to be a black and white kind of person.
  13. I like bright colors -- like that really bright green or orange or fuschia or red.
  14. I HATE having white walls in my apartment.
  15. I am a total night owl -- I have trouble going to bed before 10:30.
  16. I hate waking up in the morning.
  17. I have 1 son, 1 hubby, 1 dog, 1 cat.
  18. I am a procrastinator in the worst way.
  19. I used to read tons, then I went to grad school and got burned out on reading.
  20. I HATE HATE HATE most of the current literature that's being published -- even "Christian" literature.
  21. I wish someone would write some quality Christian novels tha could compare to some of the classics.
  22. I love Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, and Edgar Allen Poe, but sometimes the subject matter or the language is not what I should be reading.
  23. I never read The Grapes of Wrath, but I am reading it now -- and not really enjoying it.
  24. I used to write a lot of short stories, poetry and such.
  25. Studying journalism sort of robbed me of my creativity.
  26. I'd love to have the time to write something -- anything -- again.
  27. I really don't pay attention to grammar and the like when writing online.
  28. Graphic design was just a job for me, but I did enjoy it.
  29. I always feel like I am spinning my wheels at everything I attempt.
  30. I'm pretty sure I weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant.
  31. I have not been to the dentist since 1998.
  32. I think dentists are evil.
  33. Most days I only talk to Ed or Eddie -- no one else.
  34. I like to entertain people.
  35. I sometimes don't shave for a week or two at a time. My hair is blonde and soft so I can get away with that.
  36. Women got the short end of the stick when it comes to clothing.
  37. I am a bit of a hypochondriac.
  38. I think wearing a bathing suit is just like wearing underwear in public so I always wear a t-shirt over mine.
  39. I will never have a tan.
  40. I hate to drive.
  41. I really try to not speed.
  42. I love mint chip ice cream.
  43. I am soooo blessed to have Eddie on loan to me.
  44. I'd absolutely love to move to Honduras someday.
  45. I thoroughly enjoy working with people that the rest of the world shuns.
  46. I don't usually fit in or get along with people my age.
  47. I am really really looking forward to the toddler years with Eddie.
  48. I'd love to have a wedding every year. I had so much fun at ours. I would do a different wedding each year -- a beach theme, a country theme, an elvis wedding, etc...
  49. For our 10th anniversary i really and truly want to fly to Vegas and renew our vows with Elvis. That would just be so completely AWESOME!!!!
  50. I am dead serious about that last one.
