35 Random Facts About Me

That's Me

Well now, I thought it might be fun to let you guys know a few more personal things about myself. I based this list off of the "TMI Tag" that's made its rounds on YouTube, but I edited out questions that were irrelevant (or I just didn't feel like answering).

Here we go:

1 What are you wearing? A pink sweatshirt (it's cold in our house!) and a tiered denim skirt (all my PJ pants are dirty and I didn't want to wear jeans anymore). 
2 Ever had a terrible breakup? No, in fact I've never broken up with anyone. 
3 How tall are you? 5'2" and a bit.
4 How much do you weigh? Last time I weighed myself (about a month ago) I was 108.
5 Any piercings? Yes - my earlobes.
6 Favorite show? Usually whatever I'm watching at the time. I'm enjoying Pinocchio (a Korean drama) at the moment. Reuben and I watch Top Gear, Chopped, and Top Shot together. 
7 Favorite bands? Relient K, Owl City, Anberlin (earlier work, such as Cities, Blueprints, and Never Take Friendship).
8 Something you miss? Being able to play the piano (my wrist is strained and it aches if I play the piano).
9 How old are you? I turned 25 on January 17. 

Reuben at 17
[Reuben at 17 years old. I had a major crush on him.]
    10 Quality you look for in a partner? One thing that really attracted me to Reuben was how smart he was. He inspired me.
    11 Favorite Quote? "Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching." C.S. Lewis
    12 Favorite actor? Hmmm...I don't tend to have favorite actors, but I always enjoy Park Shin Hye's performances (though she was a BIT annoying in Flower Boy Next Door).
    13 Loud music or soft? Loud if I'm doing the dishes, quiet if I'm trying to eat or have a conversation.
    14 Where do you go when you're sad? Anywhere that I can be alone, which is usually my bedroom.
    15 How long does it take you to shower? Usually about 7-10 minutes, I would estimate. Unless it's a cold day and I'm trying to warm up.
    16 How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? If I really had to get ready in a flash, I could do it in about 15 minutes. If I'm taking my time (and having to get Helen ready as well), it takes me a good 30-40 minutes. If I'm getting fancy for a night out (which would involve curling my hair, doing my makeup, and putting together an outfit), it's probably close to an hour. 
    17 Ever been in a physical fight? Not unless you count fights with my sisters. 
    18 Turn on? Confidence. The ability to take charge of a situation.
    19 Turn off? Indecision about everything. And inability to admit when you're wrong. 
    20 Fears? Spiders. Making a fool of myself. Losing a loved one. 
    21 Last time you said you loved someone? A few minutes ago, to Reuben.
    22 Last book you read? The Blue Castle. It was good, but the hero was a bit too enamored with little animals.
    23 The book you're currently reading? The Bible.
    24 Last show you watched? Pinocchio and Chopped.
    25 Last person you talked to? Reuben.
    26 The relationship between you and the person you last texted? I last texted Janna, my eldest sister.

    English muffins make pretty good burger buns. #vscocam #latergram

    27 Favorite food? You know I can't choose just one: Pizza, good quality ice cream, sushi, homemade burgers, seaweed snacks, a meal I didn't cook. 
    28 Place you want to visit? Realistically? Washington and Oregon. In my dream world? Bora Bora and Italy.
    29 Last time you kissed someone? A few minutes ago: Reuben.
    30 Last time you were insulted? I can't remember the last time someone REALLY insulted me - my little brother probably comes the closest.
    31 Favorite flavor of sweet? Hands down, dark chocolate.
    32 What instruments do you play? Piano. I learned to play violin a little when I was 2 1/2, and I picked up a tiny bit of mandolin when I was a teenager.
    33 Favorite piece of jewelry? My star ear pins, even though they're kind of falling apart. 
    34 Last sport you played? We went skiing last weekend. Before that, probably volleyball.
    35 Last song you sang? "Amen, Praise the Lord" from Psalty. For Helen.
