Ten Things You Don't Know

I'm in a funk today. Normally I'd blog about it and get it out of my system, but I'm going to spare you guys that. I've been negative enough lately. So instead...I've self medicated with pizza and a Pepsi and I plan on buying some boots and skinny jeans to make myself feel better.

I was tagged by Jess with the Kreative Blogger Award to give you 7 random things about myself, but I'm going to step it up and give you ten.

1. I've been in the emergency room exactly 3 times. Twice getting stiches and once for an incredibly painful cyst that burst. If that's a TMI I apologize.

2. I used to hate the show Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sean would make me watch it with him. Now it's one of my favorite shows and I think I like it more than Sean does.

3. I was in a sorority for a year and a half while I was in college. I don't regret my time in the sorority and if we'd had different leadership I probably would have stayed in longer.

4. I feel about piercings the way some people do about tattoos. I think they are addicting. Currently I just have my nose and ears pierced, but there are days where I'd like to get the area under my lip pierced. I won't because of two reasons. 1. My mother would hate it. 2. It's really not professional looking.

5. The girls I've met through blogging (in real life) and honestly talk to the most to off of blogger seem to all have gone to Big XII Conference schools like myself. Curious.....

6. It bothers me everyday that I'm not fluent in Italian...or even close for that matter. After the new year I plan on rectifying that am going to try my hardest to be fluent before we leave.

7. I'm a terrible procrastinator. Right now I have about a million things to take care of and keep putting them off. Case in point? I have a postcard and a gift that I've been meaning to send for months and have yet to do it.

8. I bought 3 books yesterday from Amazon that were all about India. I'm obviously going through some stage right now where I am fascinated with India.

9. I've known my best friend since the 8th grade. Well...actually I've known her since the 2nd grade, but we weren't best friends until the 8th grade. We were roomates in college, in each other's wedding and living continents apart we still find time to email and talk on the phone. I am lucky to have her as a friend.

10. It bothers me when people say I'm short. In my mind my 5'3" height is average.

I'm not tagging anyone, but if you want to do it...feel free! Have a good Friday!

Let me know if you want a travel partner to India! I've wanted to go for several years now!

Eeek, I can relate to the ER visit for the cyst. That happened to me when I was 17... worst experience of my life, but I won't go into that right now!

Hope your self medication helps with the funk. I was in a pretty bad one yesterday, so I self-medicated with pasta and browsing clothes online. I can't justify buying anything at the moment because money is well beyond tight.

I'm reading a great book right now about India. It's called Holy Cow by Sarah McDonald. It's making me think about going ... or maybe becoming Hindu, ;)

Tasha said...

5. Big XII schools are the best! ;-) BOOMER SOONER!
6. The only word you REALLY need to know is "gelato."
9. Friends are the best!

I hope the pizza and pepsi have helped to start your weekend off right! Sounds like a cure for any sort of funk to me! :-)

Fun facts! :) I'm 5'4.5" and believe me I take all of that 1/2 inch that I can! I feel short but like you, I agree that in the grand scheme of things I think we're average!

JG said...

That's because Big 12 is the best!! :)

I totally want to go to India, too. Actually, I want to adopt form India, but that's almost freaking impossible unless you are Hindu or something. Yes, I've investigated it.

Sarah Ann said...

I had an addiction to piercings for the longest time! I actually have 6 but I only have one I never take out.
I have a slight obsession with India too. You should do a book review! Or at least let me know the titles so I can look them up.

Lisa said...

I'm definitely in the same boat with the funk this week.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Allison said...

Good luck with the Italian! Have you tried Rosetta Stone? You know your hubby can get on it free via the AKO website :)

I would love to learn Italian. In high school I took Spanish and in college I took Portugese (don't ask). Now I can't speak either very well and if I do I combine the too. :)

Sorry for the funk, hope the skinny jeans and the weekend help!


Yay boots and skinnies! They always put me in a great mood too! <3 be blessed!

Girl, I'm 5'5" and people always call me short! I don't get it!

Have fun shopping! That always gets me out of my funks;)

Yep...big 12 rocks.
