I honestly have no idea what to write about. I had a really funny idea involving my friends and a bracket but was advised that wouldn’t go over very well. So I thought I would write about something I know, myself! The following are random facts about me that you may or may not know. I hope you enjoy.
I was born and raised in Oklahoma City and I’m proud of it…but I don’t ever want to live there again. I applied to exactly one college and had no back up plan if I didn’t get in. I have a degree in Interior Design and I HATE it when people call me an interior decorator. No, I’m not a decorator, no I will not help you pick out fabric for new sofa and no I will not pick out accessories for your bookshelf. I will, however, help you pick out paint colors for your house. But that’s it! My high school class ring says I played golf for the school but I never did. I did play soccer though but that was after I got the ring. Oh well. I have a very unhealthy fear of grasshoppers that stems from being swarmed by a rogue flock? pack? swarm? of grasshoppers at an early age. I kid you not a grasshopper the size of a VW beetle landed on my chest and freaked out!
I am a Scuba diver and have an Advanced Open Water certificate. That means I can dive to 130 feet, go on night dives, assist in rescuing items and help guide you safely to wherever you are going. I’ve been as deep as 160 feet and my favorite time to dive is at night. There’s a bit of fear associated with and it’s as close to being in outer space as I can get. My lucky number is 24, I love cold weather better than warm weather and drinking whole milk makes me vomit. I hate eating sugary cereal, I could eat doughnuts and pizza every day and if it were socially acceptable I would have an IV of diet coke at all times. The first time I ever got drunk was with my family at my sisters college graduation. We were at my parents house and drinking root beer bombers and I drank about two too many. The best part of the story is while I was drunk my friend (who was drunker than me) and I went to an after prom party which was intended to keep kids from drinking.
While growing up we had one cat, two dogs and three horses. We had a very large lot of land where we had a shop and a barn. We had a riding lawn mower and I would ride it to neighbors houses and mow their yards for some sweet cash. My first job was working for a company called All Right Back Yards where we would go out to peoples houses and build sheds and play/swing sets. It was fun only because of the people I worked with. I’ve been laid off once before and I’m scared to death I’m going to get laid off this year.
One of my ex girlfriends as on The Bachelor but she didn’t make it past the first round. One of my girlfriends in high school started stalking me after I broke up with her. She would sit in her car and wait for me to pass her on my way home and then she would follow me home. She would also just be at my house talking to my mom when I got home so I couldn’t avoid her. The worst was when she came to my house drunk and told me she was going to kill herself. I spent three hours with her that night until I talked her off the ledge (not literally off a ledge, she was going to slit her wrist). I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t have done anything but it was still scary. I mean, come on, am I really worth killing yourself over?
I think that’s it for now. Hopefully you learned something about me.
