Random things about me

August 18th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today’s Daily Health challenge is to get to know things about someone you are already very close to… random little things you might not know but that will help you feel even closer to that person by knowing.

So it got me thinking… What are some random things people might not know about me. And off I went… random things you might not care anything about but find interesting nonetheless…

1. I was a photographer for my high school yearbook my senior year. I got a crash course in using the school cameras before being let loose with one.

2. That’s still the most photography training I’ve ever had.

3. I have to at least wear foundation when I leave the house.  Even if its just to get gas, I’ll grab my makeup kit before leaving to freshen up.

4. I used to sneak food into class in school. Everything from power bars to pastries to candy to sandwiches. I only got busted once.

5. I hate driving cars. I’ve driven trucks so long that cars wig me out. (Thankfully, we really do legitimately need a pick-up truck to haul gear.)

6. I didn’t learn how to ride a bicycle until around junior high age.

7. I hate green peas alone, but I’ll eat them in foods like casseroles or cold salads.

8. Similarly,  I hate coconut, but recently I have been on a coconut rum kick.

9. I almost always have painted toenails. If they aren’t painted, they will be within 24 hours.

10. I hold myself more accountable than anyone else can. Example: if the books are off at work, I’ll lay awake stressing over it for days trying to figure out if its my fault.

11. I sleep in the middle of the bed in a cocoon of pillows when my husband is on the road.

12. I love silver jewelry. I only own a handful of pieces of what look “gold.”  Only two pair of earrings and a few necklaces.

13. My favorite piece of yellow gold jewelry is my Aggie ring.

14. My wedding set is white gold.

15. When someone asks me “what part of Texas are you from?” I say, “South of Waco.” Everyone has known of Waco since 1993.

16. I was once approached by a modeling company to come to an open call in San Antonio. I didn’t go (it didn’t fit my personality, though I was super flattered!), but now and then I wonder what would have happened if I had gone. It’s not a regret by any means! It’s simply a path not taken.

17. I like a clean house, but I don’t mind a cluttered office.  Much to my husband’s dismay.

18. I briefly considered majoring in psychology.

19. I love to cook but absolutely hate doing dishes.

20. I really love knowing more about others… won’t you share something random about yourself with me?

    Oh I loved this. So, you got caught once in class for having food….news to me!!! Ha-ha!! A random something?? Well, I once thought I was going to be a nurse. Who in the world would have ever thought I would be doing bookkeeping and managing a business much less getting ready to test of the Registered Tax Preparer. Am I crazy??? Ha-ha!!

      Haha! Yes! I didn’t get in any trouble, but I was definitely caught!

    Good ones! I once had to serve D-hall for being tardy 3x in a six weeks in 8th grade (and it was NOT my fault for being late two of those times.) No one could accuse me of being a “good two-shoes” after that. ;-)
