30 Things Challenge: Week 1

List 20 random facts about yourself:

1. I love to dance - its the best stress reliever ever!

2. I have the potential to be a crazy cat lady. I'm pretty sure that if I wasn't married, I'd be a hoarder with like 8 cats and would live on dill pickle dip and chips. (so thank God I'm married! Ha ha.)

3. I think I'm OCD because if I spin around one way I have to go back, or else I am insanely disoriented. And I do this weird thing where I make crosses on my fingernails with my thumbs, and once I start I need to go through each finger, and then back, and then cross the pad of my fingers all the way through and back. I have tried to stop halfway through and it was terrible!

4. I always think I'm sick and I always self-diagnose via Wikipedia (bad, I know).

5. My biggest fear in the whole world is probably moths, followed closely by bats.

6. So I lied, I am actually also terrified of clowns, mannequins, people in masks and windows at night. I am basically scared of everything!

7. I hadn't thrown up in 5 years until yesterday. Not cool, flu, not cool.

8. I think tears are my coping mechanism for everything. When I am happy, sad, excited, scared, frustrated, moved, entertained, thankful, angry, relieved, stressed...I just cry. So I cry alot.

9. My first kiss was when I was 19 years old on a beach in Mozambique, Africa, under the most fantastic stars with the only boy I've ever been in love with. Top that, y'all!

10. I've only ever kissed one boy and I'm actually really proud of it.

11. I like colouring in colouring books. Its satisfactory to stay within the lines.

12. I could wear dresses and skirts every single day. I don't care what anyone says, they are so comfy and I love being a girl and getting fun options when it comes to clothes!

13. My favorite place to be is anywhere with my whole family. We have way too much fun and I never laugh harder!

14. I love autumn, its my favorite season. The colours are amazing and it looks like all of nature is worshipping God. And I get to wear tights and boots and drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Yum!

15. I'm REALLY so bad at math that its REALLY embarrassing and I REALLY hate all things math as a result. This is why I hate money games like Monopoly, Payday, etc. I will not play them.

16. My friends and I used to choreograph dance routines to Backstreet Boys songs and would video tape ourselves doing them. Yeah, I was cool.

17. I am really good and remembering unimportant things, even about other people. I always remember what Terrell ate/did a week ago when he has no recollection. I will always remember on Outtatown when Caryn would ask me what she did last week and I would tell her, and I even remember things she did that I didn't do with her!

18. As a result of this, I learn songs REALLY quickly. Like lyrics etc. Its pretty sweet.
19. When I remember these songs, I always remember the correct key they were sung in, and can sing it for you. Its really hard for me to sing it in a different key once that one's in my head.

20. I am convinced that I will die in a car accident, so much so that I only signed my organ donor card two years ago because I was convinced the day I signed it I would die.
