31 Randoms for 31 Years

Today is my 31st birthday and in honor of that I’m sharing 31 random facts/personal thoughts for the fun of it.

1 – My 21st birthday fell on Thanksgiving.  I didn’t get to go out for it though because I worked retail at the time and had to be up at 4am to work Black Friday and none of my friends were 21.  I did have a Dairy Queen ice cream cake with a turkey on it though.

2 – I still own my high school track spikes from senior year.  They serve absolutely no purpose but I can’t throw them out because the last time I wore them was for the District 3 championships.

3 – I dislike reading newspapers online and much prefer the paper version.  The same goes for actual books vs ebooks.

4 – I met my husband, Jason, through an online game.  Our first date was to the circus and out to to dinner.

5 – My birthday is Nov. 22nd.  My sister’s is March 22nd, my aunt’s is Sept. 22nd and my grandfather’s was Feb. 22nd.

6 – I have visited Ocean City, MD every year of my life except 2013 when I went on my first cruise.

7 – The first book I ever read aloud in school was to my kindergarten class and it was Dr. Suess’s Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Go Now.

8 – The previous fact is evidence that I remember a lot of really random things – both factual and personal.  This is both a blessing and a curse.

9 – I like the taste of peanut butter but hate the smell of it on my fingers.

10 – I fractured my left elbow in 3rd grade rollerskating in a friend’s basement.

11 – No amount of alcohol has ever, nor will ever, get me to karaoke.

12 – In general I am not a people person.  The people I do like, however, rarely get me to stop talking.

13 – I think Elon Musk should be president.  That man is a genius.

14 – The first writing I ever had published was in the York Junior Dispatch in 2nd grade.

15 – I am two teeth short of a full set.  They were cut out because my mouth was too small to accommodate all my adult teeth prior to getting braces.

16 – If I ever wanted to live in a city I would move to Portland, Oregon or Halifax, Nova Scotia.

17 – I believe in reincarnation.  Read more about why here – My Spirituality – Why I don’t fear death (Part 1).

18 – I am a hypocrite in that I advocate for wellness and healthy lifestyle habits, but I hate green vegetables.

19 – I have always been fascinated by Christmas lights.

20 – I have an unofficial goal of writing a novel someday.  I have yet to start it.

21 – I hate clowns, even the happy ones.  They’re all creepy.  The trailer for IT sent chills down my spine.

22 – Sea salt, caramel and dark chocolate are the most amazing combo of dessert flavors.

23 – I am a Joseph Gordon-Levitt fanatic.  I’ve had at least two friends text me before saying when they see him they’re reminded of me.

24 – I have a working theory that when we dream we’re crossing into parallel universes.

25 – My dream car is a Ford Mustang.  I could buy one, but it would serve no practical purpose thus I haven’t.

26 – My favorite era of literature is 19th century European.

27 – I watched LOTR – Return of the King in theaters by myself.  I cried when I thought Frodo had died.

28 – Jason and I have partially domesticated three squirrels that visit our yard.  Their names are Peepin Tom, Henry and Scamper.

29 – I am an environmental advocate.  I rant anytime I receive “doggie bags” in styrofoam containers.

30 – I firmly believe every event in a person’s life happens for a reason and that a person will always end up where he or she is meant to be.

31 – I would not be sane if it were not for running, writing and reading.

      Really? That’s AWESOME. My DVD tower is organized alphabetically/categorically and JGL has his own category since I have so many of his movies. Thank you, hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!
