Day 01- A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
I'm a bit of a "camera ham"...There are probably hundreds of pictures of me floating around out in the universe where I just happened to jump in someone's picture. That being said, when it comes to just taking a picture of myself, I hardly ever get it "just right" and I have all but given up on portraits. I'm either giggling and you can't see my eyes (I love to laugh!!!) or I looked completely deranged because I haven't mastered the keep-your-eyes-open-when-the-camera-flashes thing yet(and probably never will!! lol).
YEP...THAT'S ME...CHEESIN' IT UP!!
15 "Interesting" Facts About Me
(you'll have to be the judge on how interesting I really am LOL)
1.) I seem to be a perpetual student. I have been through a number of training programs and I am currently working on a degree in nursing (though I have taken the semester off). It's not entirely by choice, I just can't make up my mind as to what I really want to do. Nursing is the one thing that I feel I'm supposed to do. I am meant to be a Nurse, I feel it in my soul.(I know that was all deep and philosophical but I am serious)
2.) I became a Mom for the first time at age 16. It was extremely difficult, but even though I wish I had begun parenting later in life, I would not trade my children for the world.
3.)I have a ridiculous shoe fetish!! I love shoes, especially sexy high heels. I only own a few pairs, but if I could I'd have a room dedicated to shoes and only shoes!!
4.) I have moved more times than I'd like to mention in three different states. I think I may be part Gypsy living a bit of a nomadic life, with my roots trailing behind. They seem to be getting a bit grounded where I am now, but I don't want them to.
5.) I absolutely LOVE Blair Underwood. He's my husband in my head!! (Sorry honey lubb you!!)
6.) I didn't get my drivers license until I was 29 years old, but I learned to drive when I was 12.
7.) The sight of raw meat makes my skin crawl, but I have I weird obsession with watching surgeries and autopsies. I know it's strange, I just can't help it. If I could I would become a surgeon or a coroner, but neither finances nor time would allow me to spend that kind of time in medical school. I've put it on my "bucket list". I just may become the world's oldest medical student someday :)
8.) My all time favorite movie is......Mary Poppins. I've probably watched it more than 100 times and I STILL love it!!
9.) I hate to write speeches, but I love public speaking. There's something about standing in front of a crowd that gives me a rush.
10.) I love to read just about anything, but my absolute favorite books are historical romance novels. One of my favorite authors of this genre is Bertrice Small.
11.) Dancing is a passion of mine that I don't get to do as often as I'd like. On the days that I have the house all to myself, which isn't very often, I dance till I can't breathe!!
12.)Karaoke is another of my pleasures. In my head I sound like Patti Labelle, but out loud, it's just plain rude and wrong and I absolutely love it!! I have sooo much fun!!
13.) Most people that know me seem to think I'm hilarious, but I truly don't think I'm that funny.
14.) I write random, ridiculous poetry that makes no sense to anyone but me.
15.) I dream in color and remember almost all of them. (Running out of "interesting facts" LOL
It is my sincere hope that I sound interesting. I feel interesting and I am very interested to know if you feel the same way :)
