30 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Disclaimer: I am afraid I won’t be able to think of 30 things but at least I can say I tried. (And if I can’t think of 30 things my life is shitty) Also, this list is in no particular order.

  1. I’m an only child. This does NOT mean I’m spoiled, but I expect a lot of attention. But that does NOT mean I like to be the center of attention. (got that?)
  2. I truly enjoy daydreaming and reminiscing. If I have a glazed look in my eye please DO NOT DISTURB, I’m probably living my more adventurous life in my mind. Interrupting can be hazardous to your health.
  3. I was a quiet child, I went to karate class once and refused to go back because of the yelling.
  4. I still don’t like the yelling in Tae Kwon Do but I only shout when I test and I’ve learned to tune out other peoples shouts. (My dad is convinced it makes you breathe better, I think he’s full of shit, I breath just fine)
  5. It’s an ongoing joke at work that I’m a Cracker. My response is I can’t be a Cracker because I’m not exactly White (I’m 5/8 Filipino). Which is always retorted with “But you’re Irish” (my great granny was Irish so that makes me about 1/
  6. I am now officially a certified dog trainer, but my dog’s are kind of bad because I put up with what most owners wouldn’t. (Haha I kid, they are pretty well-behaved)
  7. I graduated with honors from high school. I got to wear the cool gold ropes around my neck. What’s even better the year we graduated someone fainted because it was the fucking hottest day of the year (maybe not the hottest but close)! :o)
  8. I didn’t like my high school, there were cuter boys in Farmington.
  9. College is mostly a blur because I had an asshole boyfriend who wasted my time and I was too naive to get rid of him.
  10. I lost my mom when I was 21 and I’m still trying to recover. I don’t really think it’s ever going to happen. I’ll be fractured for the rest of my life.
  11. C♥ was one of the best things to happen to me because he can keep me laughing and amused.
  12. I have a very short attention span, wait what?, oh yes the list of 25.
  13. Nani and Liko get their names from the Hawaiian Language. I think in a past life I lived there.
  14. Scooby’s original names on his adoption paperwork was Hank and then Scout. The lady at the Pet Expo thought he looked like Scooby Doo too so we changed his name. He will still answer to Hank.
  15. Liko’s former name was Spotty and that got changed as soon as we had his little ass in the car. What an original name…Spotty. ‘Effin assholes, they abused him too.
  16. C♥’s nickname is Jackass
  17. I get told I’m beautiful everyday by C♥.
  18. I have all my own hockey gear and I played for the first time in Tampa, Florida.
  19. I snowboard, wakeboard and recently tried surfing when we were in Kauai. (Of course I couldn’t get C♥ out of the water to take my picture!)
  20. The whole time I was on the surfboard I was thinking about sharks.
  21. I was an art major for one whole semester after my Mom died. I was way too intimidated for that!
  22. I once got wasted at work with one of the bosses and some other employees and passed out under a desk. Skipped class and got woken up at 6pm to exit the building.
  23. Irish Cailin and I drove 3.5 hours up north after leaving a homecoming game to visit our friends, only to drive the 3.5 hours back 3 hours later.
  24. I’ve smashed 2 cars so far.
  25. I’m terrified of things exploding, eating bad food and puking.
  26. I get my most creative ideas right before I fall asleep (I’m lucky I usually remember them).
  27. My tkd forms look best early in the morning when I’m half asleep because I’m most relaxed.
  28. I enjoy using ellipsis and repeating words 3 times (ex. hate Hate HATE)
  29. I can NOT stand taking a class when the teacher is a pompous ass.
  30. I have been told by my mom’s friends that I occasionally blurt out something the way she used to say it and I can’t help but grin.
