15 Facts

Randomness is something I’m pretty good at, so without further ado, 15 random facts about myself.

  1.       I don’t like meat with bones in it. That might be part of the reason why I boycott KFC. 
  2.       I’ve lived in eight different houses in my life and now I’m once again living in the house where I lived when I was a little kid. 
  3.       I studied three languages in college: Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish 
  4.   I’m the oldest of seven children—my baby sister is 15 years younger than I am. 
  5.      Coming from a family with that many children, I live by a whole set of strategies designed to make sure that I get enough to eat. 
  6.   I love ballroom and swing dancing—how good I am at it depends on my partner. 
  7.   I got both my Mrs. Degree and my Bachelor’s degree before I turned 21. 
  8.   On that note, I got married a week before final exams began during the Fall semester of my Junior year. 
  9.   I collect hobbies: scrapbooking, dollhouse decorating, jewelry making, embroidery, and lately, sewing. 
  10.  I painted my kitchen red and my ballroom (it’s a completely empty room with a wooden floor) yellow. They are right next to each other so it looks a bit McDonald's-ish but I still like it. 
  11.    I “rebelliously” got my ear pierced for the second time on my 18th birthday, but I almost chickened out because of the needle. And, actually, my Mom took me to the shop and paid for my piercing. I’m not very good at rebellion. 
  12.    I have been known to be a little obsessed with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I made sure that my family’s computer’s desktop screen was always a picture of Captain Jack Sparrow for years, until he was replaced by a picture of Prince Caspian from Narnia. 
  13.   I love country music—either the funny kind (i.e. Brad Paisley’s “I’m Gonna Miss Her”) or the sad kind (i.e. John Rich’s “Shutting Detroit Down”), I’m good with both. The sad kind is dangerous to listen to while driving, though. 
  14.    I don’t like pastel colors. Bright turquoise, fuschia, black, electric blue, that’s more my style. 
  15.    I love the idea of long hair but I don’t have a long enough attention span for it. I always get bored when I’m “growing it out” and chop it all off after a couple months. It’s rarely long enough to reach my shoulders.

Holy moly, a marriage before age 21? You go, girl! I'm impressed. I also don't think you can say you "boycott" something because you don't go, mostly 'cuz your reasons aren't political in nature (I think you're just avoiding it?). Not like there's any rules to the word boycott or anything. Haha!

Also, your hubby not liking Jimmy Johns (or liking it but boycotting it) is ridiculous. It's delicious! ;)

So glad you're joining!

I can't stand bones in my meat either. Love your random facts! I feel you on the long hair thing, I've finally had the attention span to get my hair longer and now I can't tell if I even like it, ha!

How does it feel to be back in your old home? That's so interesting!

I'm totally at the bored stage and about to chop off my hard-won grown-out hair! I do it every time.

Amy said...

You MUST teach me dance lessons! ...or let me take dance lessons, is that better?!?! :)

Abbey said...

I'm the same way with my hair. Every spring I start getting the urge to chop it all off again. :)

I know you must have a different perspective on having a large family, but I always thought it would be amazing. I come from a small family, I only have 1 sister but I always thought if I had more siblings, it would be like always having someone around...I'm sure there would be times that you would just want your own peace and quite...and times that it wouldn't be so easy, but I don't know, there's something special about being part of a large family.

Good 15 facts :) Good luck with the challenge!

Ok hilarious....I did the "rebellious" thing too by getting me ears pierced a second time when I turned 18. My mom also came and paid for it :) haha!
