100 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I hate it when people capitalize every word in a title. I just felt like it I guess.

001. I can spend hours on the internet, looking at cutesy crafty blogs/sites/etc.
002. I love waking up late and stretching for an hour, then finally getting out of bed after reading for a bit.
003. Laughing is one of my favorite activities.
004. I have an amazing family.
005. I acquire new music at a rapid rate and then don't listen to it for long periods of time.
006. I am a college kid who rarely drinks alcohol. This is, unfortunately, a rarity.
007. The smell of newspaper makes me happy.
008. I incredibly dislike cabbage and touching toes.
009. I also incredibly dislike waking up hungry.
010. I have started baking and cooking for real, and I must say, I'm really loving it.

017. I have two great roommates this summer.
018. It has been taking me forever to read books lately.
019. The quickest way to my heart would involve chocolate somethings, great, meaningful conversations, and lots of laughter. A playground wouldn't hurt, either. Or a picnic! Or sandcastles!

023. I enjoy sunrises over sunsets.
024. I have lots of guilty pleasures, but generally, I like reading/watching/seeing rich girls' drama. It gives me closure or something. Examples of this are: Sex and the City, trashy tabloid magazines, and the Gossip Girls book series.
025. Even though I claim to hate rap, I really enjoy dancing around naked to it after showering.
026. The Boy Least Likely To pretty much perfectly sings how I feel about life right now.

060. I really love nature, even though I don't spend nearly enough time in it.
061. I firmly believe in the power of prayer.
062. I'm definitely a believer of Slumber Party Theology: compassion, giggles, friendliness, and lots of genuine love.
063. I hate that there are copyright laws on music. I know it's what makes the most sense, but for God's sake, there's freaking CD burners, blank CDs, etc all for sale...so yeah.
064. I can watch the introduction screens on DVDs for...well, a really long time.
065. I'm totally obsessed with fashion magazines.

080. I really dislike The Cosby Show, Golden Girls, and Home Improvement. If you ever stumble upon me watching it...I'm definitely not paying attention.

081. I can spend hours in museums and just wander and wonder.

082. I like recording as many things as I can on my camera by taking pictures. Someday I'm not going to remember these days, and I'll appreciate it, and so will everyone else that I know now that thinks it's creepy.

083. My mind loves to daydream, even when it knows it should be paying attention.

084. I like to think that someday I could remove myself from contemporary society, but I'm pretty sure that I would freak out without a cell phone or the internet. And that thought breaks my heart.

085. If I could have a truck filled with ANYTHING, it would be glitter. Ghettofabulous? Perhaps, but I still loooove it. (thanks, Mary M)

086. I know he cheated.

087. The one time of the day that I can really lose myself is when I'm drifting off to sleep. Sometimes, during the day, that's the thing that I look forward to the most.

088. Sometimes I think that I should have been born a boy. That is because I like dressing down more than dressing up, I enjoy things that Boy Scouts did more than Girl Scouts, and I get along better with guys now than I do with the ladies. Also, I think that girls are prettier to look at sometimes (want a list? I could give it to you).

089. I hate it when the computer does things that I don't want it to (like the fact that it's skipping lines when I press "enter" right now).

090. It was hard for me to talk about myself for 90 things.

091. I want to have a hoop skirt and wander around log cabins, but only for maybe an hour.

092. I want a garden like the person from Harriet the Spy (the movie), where there were glass bottles everywhere and stone gardens and boxes of ties and bubbles.

093. I am beginning to think that Martha Stewart is amazing (I like her IDEAS, not her SELF).

094. I would rather spend time at home on Fridays/Saturdays than going out- most of the time. Unless there's a sweet concert or festival, at least.

095. I have been looking for this specific type of soap for what has now been five years. I'm pretty sure I'll never find it again. Oh well.

096. I feel this immense connection to nature, but I don't let myself go into it often enough.

097. Sometimes I find myself in more of a dream world and thinking a lot about my future instead of living in the today.

098. I really like SARK. A lot.

099. I have a semicolon tattoo.

100. I fear for today's children- that they are more of a technology-centered crowd.
