Last week I was tagged by Celine
to write 5 little known facts about myself and this week I was tagged by Heather
to list 20 random things, so here it is combined. In no particulatr order:
1. I make lists literally every single day. You might say I'm ruled by lists.
2. I am afraid of the dark. I'm not kidding. At night I turn the lights off starting with the furthest from my bedroom and sort of run to the next light. By the time I've hit the bedroom light I'm mid-air hoping to land on my bed (stemming from the childhood belief that an aligator would get me if I hit the ground).
3. I've suffered from migraines since I was 8 years old. I didn't even realize that this wasn't normal and that some people go without so much as a headache until Alex told me a few years ago that he never got a headache until he was an adult.
4. I am ruled by cravings. You'd think I was pregnant 100% of my life, the way I follow up ice cream with green olives and vice versa.
5. Judging by what I'm drawn to most, my favorite color is aqua- but I've been saying it's purple for all of my life.
6. I've visited 5 countries and 17 states (that I recall).
7. When I was little (5 or 6) I wanted to be a ballerina, children's book author, and flight attendant [when I grew up]. All at the same time.
8. I've met most of my closest friends ever
, on the internet. Including my husband. :)
9. I sometimes feel so small and claustrophobic in a room full of people (like IKEA on the weekend) that I start to panic and sometimes cry. (This has only actually happened once at IKEA.)
10. I speak really well in public but the entire time I feel sick, am red in the face, and near tears.
11. I've suffered from depression on and off for approximately 4 years but have yet to see a doctor about it.
12. I *love* to people watch. My sister and I used to do this for hours on end when visiting Disneyland.
13. I listen to talk radio.
14. My six saved FM stations play: Country, Pop, Christian, R&B + Hip Hop + Rap, Classical, and Rock. Talk about ecclectic.
15. I *love* winged things.
16. I've traded almost 500 ATC's and hope to trade at least that much more.
17. I sometimes get so overwhelmed by my overly commited self that I just pretend my projects aren't even there. It's gotten me in trouble a time or two.
18. I watch at least
one episode of Law & Order everyday. I like SVU the best.
19. Alex wants me to put that I'm a Tetris Master. And, I am. ;)
20. OMG, It took me over an hour to think of these. Ha!
