Does anyone else think that Justin Bieber and Paul Wesley favor?
Also, does this commercial...
remind you of this from Doug? I am such a 90s child.
Any random thoughts you'd like to share?
Chores that you hate: I hate having to drag my laundry to the basement of my apartment building. So I usually try to get away with doing laundry only once a week.
Dogs: Zero. I lost my beloved Patches earlier this year.
Essential start to your day: Coffee and a phone call to my Mama.
Favorite color: I have a lot of favorite colors. When I was little they were "lime green and a sickly shade of orange". Now I love yellow and blue.
Gold or Silver: It depends on my mood. Can I cheat and say White Gold?
Instruments you play: I played the clarinet when I was younger. I also took guitar lessons, and I'm hoping to brush up on my skills (or lack there of) soon.
Job title: Graduate student and Curatorial Assistant
Kids: I love kiddos. I worked in an elementary school for 4 1/2 years and nannied over the summer. I'm not ready for my own kids yet, but I love "borrowing" them for a few hours.
Live: I live in Georgia, but I stay in the midwest.
Mother's Name: Mama, Mumsie Dearest...Linda.
Nicknames: Oh goodness, there are a lot. Elysie Piecie, Ese, Esies, Pumpkin, JD, OCJD, E, Lilster, Dipstick, Doodlebug, Angel Baby, Lyse, Goober Twin, Belyse...and the list could go on and on.
Overnight hospital stays: None...thank goodness.
Pet peeves: When people smack on their gum! Ugh. Oh and when people disrespect books.
Quote from a movie or tv show: "I've always felt out of step. Like literally stumbling through my life. I never felt normal. Because I'm not normal. I don't want to be."
Right or Lefty: I'm a righty...but I use my left hand sometimes too.
Siblings: I'm an only child.
Time you wake up: 6:45 AM on days I have to work...the other days, just whenever I wake up.
Underwear: From Target.
Vegetable you hate: English peas...gag.
What makes you run late: Deciding I hate my outfit, or watching too much tv while getting ready.
X-Rays You've Had: What have I not had an xray on? My foot, ankle, arm, chest cavity, back, head...you name it I've had it.
Yummy food you make: I think I'm a pretty good cook. I make some killer Italian food...homemade sauce is a must.
Zoo Animal: Besides otters...zebrahs of course! And yes, I spell zebrahs how phonetically.
2. Asteroids. When Armageddon came out when I was little, I was terrified that I was going to die because an asteroid was going to come and take us all out. Yep, and the recent space trash flying at us brought this fear back up.
3. Dying alone.
4. I'm afraid that my worrying is going to push people away.
5. I'm afraid that I may lose myself and my identity.
6. I can be so much of an only child, that sometimes I'm afraid that when I do find my significant other, I won't know how to handle the relationship.
7. I'm afraid that something will happen to my family while I'm away at school.
8. Sometimes I can legitimately see myself with agoraphobia, because I tend to get paralyzed with worry sometime. This scares me more than anything.
9. I'm afraid that I'm not going to find a job when I graduate in May.
10. I'm terrified of my graduate exit project.
Let me know if you decide to play along :D
-Also on a side note, the lovely Kaycie is having a giveaway over at her blog, Redhead Memories. Have you entered yet?
The 9th Doctor and his partner Rose took me on a journey to far away lands and times. It was the perfect escape from reality that I needed.
The Doctor has also taught me that it's okay to be scared sometimes and to run away. Goodness knows, if you're going to be a companion, you've got to have a good pair of running shoes. But he has also taught me that there is a time to be brave as well. Just as in the real world, the Doctor is not always there to save his companions...despite his best attempts. When in those times, you just have to make due and face your fears. It is hard to explain this without there being spoilers for those who have not watched yet, but trust me. Courage is definitely something to be learned.
The Doctor makes things that appear uncool, very cool. Remember that post I did earlier? The one where I said I'm ready to be me? Well, the Doctor would be my biggest advocate. The Doctor would say "Hey! It's okay to be yourself." The Doctor is himself all the time. Who cares if bow ties, glasses, stetsons, or fezzes aren't cool? The Doctor says wear them anyway. We should all adopt this philosophy. Who cares if something we do isn't considered cool? Do it anyways for the sheer fact that it makes you happy.
I have a lot to thank the Doctor for. To put it all in one post would be too much for ya'll...and frankly too much for me to write. That's why I've recruited some pretty awesome girls to help me out. For now, I'll just leave it at this. While Doctor Who is science fiction, the emotions are real. You experience heartache, joy, excitement, all because of 900 year old man with 2 hearts.
I'll try to mark things off and update as the year goes on. Fingers crossed I can cross off 20 of them. What's on your bucket list?
Drink as many Coke icees from Racetrac as is humanly possible.
Go to the lake and see my Aunt Patti and Uncle Jim for the day.
Read as many fun books as possible before I have to start reading the serious stuff for school.
Go to the Jersey Shore.
Not get sunburnt (I'm unusually pale for this time of year).
Not gain a bazillion lbs back (and actually lose some) while being at home.
Go to a Braves game.
See Harry Potter a bazillion times.
Go take pictures of "Mystic Falls" so I can show ya'll have close I actually live to it.
I'm trying my best to get together with all my friends and family before I leave, but for if I don't get to see you this time let me go ahead an apologize. I'm trying to spend as much time with my Mumsie Dearest and Daddy O as possible. I'll post as to why later, but I just feel like it needs to be done.
Well it's not much of a bucket list, but if ya'll think of something I should add, just let me know. And don't forget if you want a postcard send me your address or if I already have it, just leave a comment :D
