25 Things

So, I've been tagged about 3 or 4 times on Facebook to complete this Tag Note "25 things."  Since my blog imports into my notes on there, I decided I would do it here and then tag the people on Facebook... rebel, I know!  I've been taking time to think about this today, trying to think of 25 things that are interesting about me...it was quite hard.  But anyway, here is what I came up with.

As with all "tags," there are rules... 
Rules:
Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you. If you weren't tagged, please do this anyway. 

(To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)




  1. I love lemons.  Whenever I have water or tea to drink, I always load it down with lemons.  I'm talking like 3 or 4 lemon slices in a regular sized glass of tea.  I can also eat them straight.  However, I do no like lemon flavored stuff... like pie or tarts.
  2. I'm addicted to the Internet.  Seriously... I need an intervention or something. 
  3. The smell of Doritos makes me want to blow chunks.
  4. In High School, I was a planner.  I had a plan for my life.  I always had an answer to the question "Where will you be in 5 years?"  Six years later... all of those plans have taken different directions.  That person in High School would not even recognize the person that I am today. 
  5. I never saw Dirty Dancing until I was a freshman in college.  I love it now!
  6. My entire life, I have lived in the same county.  I love Eastern NC, but I am ready to get away!
  7. I have my sister color my hair almost monthly... and the color doesn't always stay the same.  I have to look at pictures of when I was 18 to see what my natural hair color is, because I can no longer remember. 
  8. I absolutely hate being alone.  I live alone now, and it is so depressing. 
  9. For some reason, I can remember dates very well.  I always know when something happened.  Sometimes, I can even tell you what I was wearing when certain things happened.  My mind relates everything to another event and its easy to remember for me.  For example:  I had my very first job interview at Piggly Wiggly on Saturday, January 20, 2001.  It was raining and I wore Khaki pants and a purple shell and cardigan set.  I remember the date, because it was the day George W. Bush was inaugurated the first time.
  10. When I was in Middle School and High School, everyone picked on me because I rolled my eyes all of the time when I talked.  Look through the facebook pictures... its there!
  11. I play the flute and was in band for 6 years. 
  12. I Google EVERYTHING!  If you need to know anything... just ask me and I can probably tell you within minutes because I find it on Google. 
  13. I was always the Teacher's Pet. 
  14. I was on the Yearbook staff for 3 years in High School.  I was the Editor my senior year. 
  15. Tupperware gets me excited!  I love talking about plastic containers!
  16. Sunday will mark the 2 year mark of my Singledom. 
  17. I'm ready for my sister to have babies, so that I can be an aunt.  She's only been married for 4 months. 
  18. My favorite color is Purple.  Any shade.  I even painted the walls of my room purple. 
  19. Organization will be the death of me.  I never know where to get started, so I always give up!
  20. Procrastination is my middle name.  I always have good intentions of getting things done early, but I always work better under pressure.  I started writing my first college research paper 12 hours before it was due.  8 pages took me about 7 hours to write.  I made a 96.
  21. I never study.  I don't know how. 
  22. Dr. Pepper is my crack. 
  23. I can't wait to be a teacher.  I am definitely taking the long route to get there... but one day. 
  24. I often cry at movies that are meant to be comedies.  Almost all Adam Sandler movies make me cry.  Most recently, Bride Wars had me in tears. 
  25. I am a grammar snob, but only with certain things, and only in writing.  (Probably couldn't tell by my blog... but that's different.)  The offense I hate the most?  Misspelling "A lot"  It is TWO words people!  
So there you have it!  25 things about me!

An update... A busy few days.

I'm still alive... and still working on the Year in Review for 2008... for some reason, I'm having a hard time writing it... But anyway... here's an update.

Last Friday night, I went over to my cousin's house for a Liberty Bowl party. We had a good time, despite our Pirates not pulling off the win... oh well, it was a good season!

On Saturday, I visited another cousin's house for an Oyster Roast. We hung around, watched NFL Football (They are really into it... I could care less!) and then it was time to eat. I had never had Oysters before... and I tried them! I am not usually one to try new foods, but I did, and they weren't half bad. I had some fried ones and steamed too. I had a great time. It was nice to be around people and doing something besides sitting in my house.

On Monday, I spent my last day off of work driving and going to Greensboro. I had been trying to get up there for the entire 3 weeks that I was off, but it never worked out, until Monday. When I got there, I visited any Crafter's heaven... Hobby Lobby! I love that store and could spend hours and hours in there, not to mention the tons of money I could go through! They were having a huge sale on all of their Christmas stuff... everything was 80% off. While much of it had been picked through, I did pick up some stuff to decorate with next year. I also got some stuff to put in my Craft Room when I get it organized. With all of the sales... and the handy 40% off any single item coupon that I found in the cart I got, I spent a lot less money than what I thought I would!

After Hobby Lobby, I spent the afternoon with Daniel, a friend of mine that used to live here, but moved back to Greensboro almost a year ago. It had been about 7 months since I had seen him, so we had a lot to catch up on. We spent so much time just talking and catching up, that the time went by way too fast.

That night, we went to dinner at TGI Fridays. I hadn't been there in years. The food was great. I was able to get a piece of their yummy Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, to go, of course, because I was stuffed. The cheesecake was the only thing that I remembered about my last trip there... and I was not disappointing this time either! I mean... just look at it...


Seriously, this is the BEST Cheesecake I've ever had! Enough about the Cheesecake! lol


Anyway, I had really been missing Daniel. When he lived here, we spent quite a few late nights together just talking... and that was really nice. He really is one of my closest friends, whether or not he knows it. We met just a couple of months after I called off things with the ex... and he was there through all of that initial "healing" time. Sometimes, its nice just to have someone to talk to. I didn't want to leave that night, but I had to come back home to go to work the next day... maybe next time we will have a lot more time together. We both vowed to not make it 7 months again.


Tuesday was the first day back at work. Since work is slow right now, they cut the office hours down to half days. Believe me, I don't mind only working 5 hours a day, but I know I'm gonna hate it when my pay check comes! So far, things haven't been too stressful there, but its only the first week back. I don't know how long we will be working half days... so hopefully, the work pics up and we go back to full days.

So there's a little update of what I've been doing over the past few days. Now, I think that I am gonna try and get some sleep. I'm working on regulating my sleep schedule again... since I was off for 3 weeks, it got really off track!

2009




I haven't had time to finish up my 2008 Year in Review... but look for it to be coming by the weekend.    

Until then... This is the first thing I'm excited about in 2009... 

The Pirates are in Memphis preparing for the Liberty Bowl!  I can't wait until Friday when I'm with people, watching the game and having a great time!  Here's to the Pirates Painting Memphis Purple!
