The List About Me

My friend Erin inspired me to write a list about myself. So here's the starting 25... I'm up to 67 and it grows everyday!

  1. I adopt people’s pet peeves. When someone tells me “I hate it when…” I make sure I don’t do, say, or become something they hate. This has led me to unwrinkle bent and folded corner pages of books, to not text someone I can call, and always make sure the toilet paper end is left hanging over the top of the roll.
  2. I dislike it when people stop to make a right turn and feel they must wait for the light to turn green to go.
  3. I don't like stoplights without protected green arrows (which means I dislike most of Utah’s traffic lights). I mean you wait so long for the light to turn green and then when it finally does, you have to wait again and it’s unsure of whether or not you’ll even be able to go!
  4. I dislike the social pressure I feel when at a crosswalk on a street with absolutely NO cars, to wait with the rest of the people until the “Walk” sign flashes instead of going like I normally would in that situation on a “Don’t Walk” signal.
  5. I love driving. But not down 400 South.
  6. I don't like getting maps off the internet to try and navigate myself through Utah. How can Mapquest navigate you all the way across the country but has a hard time giving good enough directions to get you around a Utah neighborhood?
  7. I could eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and have)!
  8. I don’t feel guilty about eating a whole Ben & Jerry’s pint of ice cream if it’s the low-fat frozen yogurt kind (even if it only lighter by like 2 grams of fat).
  9. I love changing my hair style.
  10. I can’t stand going more than a day without washing my hair.
  11. I love volunteering (and often volunteer my husband and my mom, too!).
  12. Most times I have to sleep on my right side.
  13. I LOVE buying kettle corn at carnivals and nachos at ballgames.
  14. I keep a running list of things I want to do as a parent, wife, friend, etc.
  15. I collect quotes.
  16. I feel I am a different person around my family and they either see me as I really am or they don’t see me how I see myself. Either way, I feel the impression I give off is a negative one. And either way, I need to change.
  17. I feel the need to change often.
  18. I fall asleep during almost any movie I lay (or is it lie?) down to watch after 10.
  19. But I could stay awake forever watching the stars.
  20. I can’t stand when one nail breaks off and now my nails are uneven so I break or chew them all off to be the same length.
  21. I don't like fakeness. I don’t deal well with people who say one thing or act one way but really feel like saying or doing another.
  22. I don’t enjoy watching drama series on TV where if you didn’t watch episode 1, season 1, there’s no way you will be able to jump in and understand what’s going on now.
  23. And even if I did watch episode 1, I still don’t think I’d enjoy watching television drama series.
  24. Though I LOVE gameshows and reality TV shows (except for all the sick and twisted pornographic ones).
  25. This would narrow it down to the fact that I love The Amazing Race, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and The Biggest Loser.

I can't wait to read the others! When I started mine I thought for sure I couldn't come up with more than a few but I'm way past 100 and I think of new ones all the time.
