Things about Me

Well, I kinda liked Jennifer's post about interesting things about her, so I thought I'd post some too. It was kinda fun and introspective to come up with this list.

  1. I am very good with direction and getting places, even strange ones.
  2. If I could do anything, I would most love to be a writer or author of books.
  3. I am somewhat adventurous - I was a summer missionary twice.
  4. Other than family, I've only been kissed by two men - one was a stranger I met at the beach when I was 16 and the other one is my husband.
  5. I can count the number of alcoholic beverages I had on one or both hands. I've never smoked, and I've never taken an illegal drug, and only seen one twice - once in college, at my roommate's boyfriend's friend's apt, and once at a concert.
  6. I've only been to a handful of concerts. It is rare for me to be able to name the band that's playing on the radio as I know very little about popular bands from my teenage years or from the years after I attended college. The only bands I know about are from my college years, and they are all Christian bands. My first concert was to Jars of Clay during my freshman year.
  7. Surprisingly, I wanted to major in music before my parents got me to change my mind, but it would have been the classical variety. I totally think it was the right decision, though I was heart broken at the time.
  8. I feel like I was made to be a mom. I don't think other moms should be so judgmental of other moms either. Unless you've walked a mile in somebody else's shoes, how do you really know that you could do it better?
  9. In front of a roommate, I told God that I passionately disliked him, though I used the h word, which I would never ever say again. He knew that I was lying to Him, that I would come out of the darkness and know Him even better for the going through the valley with Him. I am so glad to have His grace and know that He is a forgiving God. I wanted to take it back as soon as I said it.
  10. I used to hate being identified by my occupation as an engineer, but now that I'm just a mom, it's like people don't think I have an identity.
  11. I've never been popular and I've always felt like the odd one out. Though, now that I'm in my 30's I feel comfortable just being me. I have always felt like an older person trapped in a younger person's body. I'm starting to feel like the age I am. And even though someone is always judging my parenting, I feel more confident doing it than anything else I've ever done.
  12. When I was in 4th grade, my crush was Michael J. Fox. When I was in 6th to 9th, my major crush was my band teacher - Mr. Scott Thompson. (I could think of all kinds of ways that I was going to marry him). When I was in college, my crush was Dean Cain (Superman). After I graduated, I had a heartbreaking crush on a friend. Now, I just love my hubby.
  13. I love to read. If I could buy something for myself every day, it would either be shoes or a book.
  14. I love sweet tea and dark chocolate. I dislike, maybe even hate, other forms of chocolate.
  15. I am a cookie person not a cake person.
  16. I would secretly like to have as many kids as the Dugger family, and wonder if that is what God meant when He said, "Be fruitful and multiply." The thought never occurred to me that it might be wrong to have so many children. I am certain I will not have that many children, but I certainly think it is neat. And, yes, I still use the word neat.
  17. I have not broken a bone yet.
  18. I have a temper, much like my dad's, though not many people have seen it. When I was a teenager, I decided I didn't want to have a temper and stifled it. Now that I'm a mom and a wife, it comes out again.
  19. I have heard God speak to me in several ways, though I have become a bit of a skeptic when others say similar things.
  20. I think most people think I'm a snob, but I'm far from it. Just quiet, sometimes shy, and very observant. I usually always remember a face, and if you are remotely in my circle of places I frequent, I usually know your name and face, even though you probably don't know mine, and I can even remember details about you, like what you said to me last.
