1. I can lick my elbow. You better believe it. I am abnormally flexible, or as many call it, “double jointed.”
2. My favorite feeling is a rush of excitement mixed with a hint of fear. This comes from things like skydiving, a crazy, super fast, loopy roller coaster, or the beginning of a race when you first begin to run. It happens when you kiss someone you’re into for the first time (maybe even the first few times), or when you’re up at bat and your team has two outs and the bases are loaded. I discovered my adoration for this feeling when I was a child, when my brothers, cousins, friends, and I would play manhunt. I got a natural high from that feeling of darting to “base” when someone on the opposite team saw me/was chasing me. Gotta love it!
3. As a child, my favorite book was Upchuck and the Rotten Willy by Bill Wallace. For a complete animal lover, there’s nothing like getting into the mind of one of them. I began writing and drawing at a very young age, and my finished products were always stories about animals (especially dogs and wolves) or pictures of them (again, mainly dogs or wolves).
4. As an early teenager, I had an obsession with astrology. Scorpios rule. Just throwing it out there.
5. For a long time, my favorite color was lime green. Now, though I hate to admit it since I’m known to be all into green, I’m pretty sure it morphed into turquoise.
6. I don’t like my hair. It’s “baby fine” and naturally stringy. I have it a few inches past my shoulders, though I’d like to grow it long. I have a few times, but it looks disgusting and I have to brush it every two minutes to prevent it from looking flat. But, it could be worse. I could have no hair.
7. When it comes to physical attraction, I can never help but to stare and become extremely clumsy and awkward around a thin guy with dark brown or black shaggy-like hair with green or blue eyes. I’m not sure why that is. Gets me every time.
8. I have a bucket list and am set on completing it (it’s on this blog – check it out).
9. I absolutely love every one of my friends and enjoy their company very much. I love hanging out with a close group of friends. I befriend people with good heads on their shoulders, and having a group of friends who all get along makes me feel a part of something special (because it is!). It’s also really something to spend time with just one friend. There’s that feeling of strengthening your bond and being too comfortable around one another. It all comes from trust. It’s a powerful thing. I do have my moments when I like to be alone – it happens often. I cherish my alone time and use it to write, read, listen to music, think, and do whatever else. You’ll never know.
10. I dislike bees. The first time I was ever stung, I stepped in a bee hive. Not pretty. I’m sorry I ruined their hive, but what in the world was it doing on the ground buried in leaves?! They should have relocated! Bees always tend to follow me around, buzz in my ear. Why must they do that?
