All About Me: Things You Didn't Know and I Didn't Know I Would Say

Awesome thanks to Dan at Sanguine Musings for awarding me The Versatile Blogger! Mucho gracias, arigato, thank you, etc! (The only languages I know "thank you" in, I think).

Which compels me to share seven facts about myself (Even though Dan said I didn't have to). However, I am probably more interested than anyone to see what seven facts I choose. I have a feeling that randomness might possibly here it goes.

1) I am living back in my parent's house with my 16 year old sister, my 14 year old brother, and my 4 year old brother. Just yesterday, I checked out an apartment an hour away, thinking that I might want to move sometime in the near future. But the sheer bleakness mixed with the gray, snowy day and the shady looking streets and huge strange houses made the warmth and life of my family's home more appealing than I had previously considered. I suddenly saw a picture of me in this small, barren, lonely place, and I didn't like it. Not to mention the scrawny, strange looking guy who came outside shirtless, only a pair of shorts on, and no shoes. Gave me the creeps.

2) My sister is my best friend. She is six years younger than me, but it's like we are on the same wave lengths. Plus, it's nice to have someone that I don't have to censor myself around. We pretty much say anything we want, and we don't take it personally. Not that we are always mean to each other or anything. We're just truthful. Yesterday, we were voting together for People's Choice Awards. Here's how the scene went:
We came to the "Web Celeb" category. Everything that follows, we said exactly simultaneously:
"Web Celeb?"
"What's that?"

The fact that we even said "Woah" at the same time and did the same kind of laugh afterward was crazy funny. At least to me.

3)I sub for pre-school more than anything else so far. That's where I was today. Not too many people are psyched about filling in for the crazy (but cute) pre-schoolers who don't care about consequences and are liable to drive you up the wall on a good day. I'm their go-to person, I guess.

4)I just recently got a new job, but I haven't started yet. It's a data entry position at a doctor's office where I'm helping out a plastic surgeon. The day he interviewed me, he had seen 66 patients.

5) Apparently I move my head a lot when I sing. I just video recorded myself. It was worse than John Mayer on PBS! I told my sister, "I hope I don't move my head all the time like that." She said, "Yeahhh, it's sooo annoying." "What??!"

6) My two favorite TV shows right now are Dark Angel and How I Met Your Mother. I really need to stop watching so much tv. When I lived on my own, I never watched. Well, because I didn't have a TV! But now, it's a different story...

7)I won third place in the poetry contest at my college. At a recent interview for a job I didn't get, I used this as an example of an accomplishment I was proud of...perhaps I should have picked something else??? That interview was doomed anyway. It seriously felt like fate was intervening and making words that I didn't mean come out of my mouth. At the end, the interviewer asked where I wanted to be in 5 years, you know, career wise. I said a bunch of non-committal mumbo jumbo at becoming a manager! That is the last thing I want to do!! So why did I say it? Universe???

  1. Hmm, a few things. yes, that guy was creepy. Glad your Creep-o-meter is working well. Congrats on the poetry contest! That's awesome! And finally, yeah, TV is the worst time sucker ever. I stay away except when I'm exercising or folding laundry (basically, the mind-numbing stuff that lends itself to more mind-numbing TV)
