Emilie: 25 things you might not know about me

January 27, 2009 at 8:34 am Leave a comment

  1. I’m 26 and I have a terrible fear of the dark.
  2. I moved someone else’s clothespin in 1st grade off of an “A” to a “B” in conduct so I wouldn’t go from a “B” to a “C”.  Oops…
  3. I am the youngest girl of 3 (and also the tallest…by a small margin) and I was not planned.
  4. I can’t stand touching chalk, zippers (not the actual zipper pull, but the zipper train), and the inside of some sleeping bags (b/c of the nasty scratchy material).
  5. I can have a terrible temper, especially when I’m playing anything competitive like volleyball or even Pictionary.
  6. I have 4 best friends in 4 different cities.
  7. I really, really don’t like running, but I love the benefits I get from doing it (weight loss and living longer).
  8. I really wanted to be a sports anchor or sideline girl for ESPN, but then I interned at a TV station and quickly found out you don’t get to pick what field you work in when you start out….you HAVE to do news for a looong time and I didn’t want to work in TV news.
  9. I have loved the Atlanta Braves for my entire life.  Don’t hate me.
  10. If I could eat McDonald’s every day I would – for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  11. I really don’t like to wear make-up at work.  In fact I never wear make-up to work unless necessary.  I probably should wear some blush at least…
  12. I am a Virgo and I have a counting problem.  I like to group things in 3s or 5s and I get frustrated when my groups don’t end in 5s or 10s.  I even count when I’m running which causes me to get out of breath because I forget to breath sometimes.
  13. I am an aunt to two nephews and love it, but being a mother freaks me out more than I ever let on.
  14. I love to meet new people, but I don’t like having to make fake conversations with people I really don’t like.  I don’t do “fake” well.  It comes off as strained and mean.
  15. I live at home with my parents…still…yes I know…
  16. I played Varsity volleyball as a Freshman and at the time I thought it was the worst thing that could have happened to me because of the way I was treated by the upperclassmen who hated me for playing instead of them.  Now that I look back on it, I think a lot of who I am now was built during that year.
  17. My favorite TV channel is ESPN.  Recently I have been loving the house buying shows on HGTV…
  18. I’m scared of not being able to take care of myself one day.  Most days I take it for granted that I can do everything for myself, but occasionally I see the struggle of someone very close to me and it makes me worry and it makes me sad because she was very self sufficient at one time, too.
  19. I am mad at myself for being lazy sometimes.  Whether it’s keeping in touch with old friends, working out or keeping my room(s) clean.  I have all the best intentions and they always take a back seat to whatever I feel like doing that day.
  20. I’m not ready for kids because I like picking up and going.  Going to the mall, going to sleep whenever, going out with friends, sleeping until whenever…I’m not ready to share my time.  I hope to be ready someday.
  21. I’m struggling to get 25 things about me you wouldn’t know b/c I think I’m a simple person.
  22. I’ve gotten rid of certain people in my life because of the constant drama it made in my life. I may not have handle the “defriending” right, but it’s what I did and I’m happy with the results.
  23. I’m glad I was the youngest child because I was a watcher and a learner.  I watched what my sisters did that made my parents mad or happy and made a conscious decision on my actions.  If my sisters did something that got them punished I thought, “Oh..I’m not doing that when I get older.”  But when my parents were happy with their actions I remembered how happy it made my sister(s) and decided that was a good path to follow.  I’m not saying I was a perfect child (because I was far from that), but I wanted to make life easy for my family and that’s what I thought was a good way to do it.
  24. I wish some people  could just get along.  A “grin and bear it” kind of thing.
  25. Mike is laid back, easy-going and great in math and science.  I am not.  That’s what I think is so great about him because I’ve always wanted to be a little laid back and easy-going…not TOO laid back though…can’t give up total control.
  26. Bonus – I cannot think about my parents dying.  I will not talk about my parents dying. It’s hard enough to just type it.
