Today is My Day

13 Apr

It is a big day today. Not only is it the day I am finally getting around to getting my taxes done, but it is also my birthday. The day to officially celebrate getting old.* I am going to give ya’ll a big surprise and share 24 facts about myself, since I just turned 24, that you would maybe not otherwise know about me. I do have to say that I stole this idea (Thanks, Malia!) because I thought it was such a neat idea. So here goes nothing.

*I’ll get back to this thought in a bit, so don’t forget about it!

1. I want to own horses, a few pigs, a few cows, and some chickens when I “grow up”.

2. Big-eyed, boy folk singers sing directly to me. I’m not sure if this one counts as a fact…

3. I don’t like pop. I don’t not like it because it is very unhealthy or has a tendency cause people to be overweight or even that it rots teeth. I just don’t like it.

4. I love wrinkles. I can’t wait to get old and have wrinkles. And I cannot figure out why society is so darn afraid of these lasting impressions of a wonderful life. *This is the reference to celebrating getting old. I wasn’t being sarcastic (for once)!

5. I know that if food is handmade with love, there are no calories included.

6. When I was growing up, I hoped to be six feet tall and have size 11 shoes. I only got one of those.

7. Top 5 favorite smells (5 because I can’t pick 1 as a favorite): The smell of fog, the smell of a match after its lit but before the smoke, the smell of clean cement/bricks on a humid day, vanilla, and either a campfire in the summer or a wood stove in the winter.

8. If I had to choose a career other than medicine, it would most likely be a degree in art.

9. I have a terrible habit of picking out flaws/cliches/wrong facts/dramatic over-acting in movies. I can’t help but get the giggles when they mess up something badly.

10. I have more fingernail polish colors than I would like to admit to. To be fair, I have never paid more than $2 for a bottle though.

11. I am very surprised at how many of you are following my blog. I didn’t exactly expect anyone to want to follow me. (Thanks everyone!)

12. My dream car is a 1969 Mustang Fastback in black. If anyone just so happens to have one laying around, it is my birthday you know.

13. I absolutely, positively cannot live without milk. On average, I drink 2 gallons a week. Yes, it is a problem. One delicious problem.

14. I don’t like eating in restaurants. My best guess as to why: I don’t particularly like eating. I don’t like to watch people eat. I don’t like people watching me eat. And I automatically assume that people don’t like watching me eat.

15. I have considered joining the military on several different occasions.

16. If I have one passionate cause outside of medicine it is in equality of everyone, especially homosexuals.

17. I know that people have too much faith in my future/success.

18. My mom used to make our favourite meals for our birthday. I usually chose her homemade hamburger stroganoff.

19. I cannot wait to buy my first house, my own space.

20. My future dog is a Great Dane. Love.

21. I can be quite terribly indecisive. In all actuality, if I don’t care about the end result/would be satisfied with any option, I would rather have someone who has a defined opinion answer.

22. My favourite movies are Wall-e, Lucky Number Slevin, and I Am Sam.

23. I believe in forgiveness but still have a conscience that tells me I have done wrong. And it scares me to think of all the bad I have done even if it has been forgiven. So I try my best to stay away from bad and wrong. But, I am human, and will be my whole life.

24! I still don’t have my passport. It is quite sad, since I hope to do my fair share of traveling when I have a spare moment in my life.

There you have it.

    To be more precise. There are some things that simply are easy and enjoyable to read and have an honesty about them. Your stuff’s like that!!

      Thank you for the compliments! I try my very best to be honest most of the time. I’m glad it shows through. 🙂

    People read your blog because they should hope to have a daughter who has her act together like you do. The charming thing is you don’t seem to realize just how together you are at such a young age. Look for a bright future eventhough you have size elevens.

      Thank you kindly for such nice words! I definitely don’t feel as put together as you make me sound to be, though. My mom always jokes that my size 11s give me a good foundation in life!
