10 random things about me

inspired by my friend, big D (he has a fun blog with his writings about life), i thought i would share some random knowledge about me.

1. i'm proud of where i'm going to grad school but i absolutely hate telling people. maybe it's just me but i feel like the looks people give me after i tell them is full of pure judgement. 

2. i worry about having wrinkles, i hate the dark under eye circles i have (sleep deprivation sucks), i would love to lose 10 pounds and i think i have the largest hands for a girl my size. insecurities suck.

3. although i'm all about my curly hair now, i used to straighten my hair back in the day. not sure if my friends remember that since it's been more than 10 years but occasionally i would do it for fun in my 20's. now i'm all about my natural texture hair and not applying any heat at all to it. 

4. i watch big brother. i have an insane obsession with the show. i used to want to try out for the show but decided that i'm not cutthroat enough to apply. plus - i would never want to see myself on camera 24/7. i know i would annoy the hell out of myself.

5. i still want an iphone. that's pretty self-explanatory.

6. i created a list of 72 movies that have felt like must watches for the longest time. a taste of the list: a beautiful mind, bourne identity, friday, indiana jones, rocky, terminator, and training day. now you can only imagine what the other 65 movies are.

7. i hope to never lose my sense of curiosity or my ability to be innovative. it has helped me more than any other trait/characteristic in terms of figuring out what i want to do with my life and career.

8. i never thought of myself as a nerd until recently. i never believed in my intellectual capabilities. my friends and family have been yelling at me for some time to feel more confident but it hasn't happened until reaching 30.

9. i'm excited for 30. so much more of my life feels settled.

10. i leave soon. really soon. and i don't feel ready but i also have a mental list that includes - a lot of my clothes, 10 pairs of shoes, 2 - 3 bags, my coats/jackets, my sewing machine, some yarn and crochet hooks, and a bunch of my books that are relevant to what i will be doing. that should be enough, right?

(10 and 1/2. i love that pic of me. i look so silly.)

  1. you forgot to mention that you spoil your niece and nephew in the hopes that they will take care of you when you are old (or, p5 will hook you up with olympics tickets when she is on the gymnastics team)
