25 Things for 25 Years

Well, it's my birthday. I had a very nice day today, visited some friends, had a delicious pork roast for dinner, ate far too much cake and opened lots of fun presents. I'm ready for a nap, that's for sure. Tomorrow I'll head back to school to do all the homework I've been neglecting for the past week.

Anyways, without further ado, here are 25 things about me:

  1. I've never had a nose bleed.
  2. I collect gargoyles.
  3. Hockey is the only sport I can stand watching on TV.
  4. The longest relationship I've ever been in was 6 months long. Emphasis on the LONG.
  5. I call it pop, not soda.
  6. I'm a big believer in the Midnight Muse. I leave all homework until the last minute.
  7. I changed my minor to Anthropology last Tuesday.
  8. I own 1 pair of white socks. The rest are colored or decorated.
  9. If I had to choose between a dog or a cat I'd pick a dog. A big one.
  10. I drive stick. I can't imagine going back to automatic.
  11. I don't like steak.
  12. I love to color.
  13. Immediately after eating ice cream I have to eat something salty. Most often it's an olive or a pickle.
  14. I've never been drunk. I've been buzzed, but never drunk.
  15. I listen to classical music more than any other sort.
  16. I don't eat anything with more than 4 or less than 2 legs. (Fish, lobster, bugs...)
  17. On hot nights I sleep-strip.
  18. I can't sleep without a blanket. Top sheets don't count.
  19. Water gives me heartburn.
  20. I like to cook but hate to bake.
  21. I love candles. Living in a no-candle dorm is killing me.
  22. I have dreams that are so vivid that often I wake up annoyed with people because of something they did during a dream.
  23. I've never tried smoking or drugs. No interest really.
  24. My first kiss was in 8th grade.
  25. This is the first birthday in a long time that I'm happy with where I am in life and what I'm doing. I feel like I'm finally back on track.
Well... I'm half-way to 50. A junior in college. Dating a great guy. Doing good in my classes. The Wolves won their game tonight.

Life is good.

Happy Happy Birthday!

It's lovely to live vicariously through friends. :) Three months ago you were in such a stressed out miserable state. I am SO happy for you. You are a great example to me to take risks and follow your dreams.

Thank you. And Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you! My best wishes for the next year, and I hope you continue to not have nosebleeds (they suck) and to find loads of gargoyle-shaped stuff. Gargoyles rock! I've always wondered why the villains have the better costumes and decor in every single movie! They get to do gargoyles, bats, and black velvet.
