All About Me

Big Thank you to Jenn, my endearing sister, for nominating me.  

The rules of this nomination are:
To tell seven random things about myself as well as pass on the award to seven other great bloggers.
Nominees, in order to accept this award you must:
-Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
-Write seven random things about yourself.
-Award seven other awesome and inspiring bloggers.

1.  I am afraid of the dark, being home alone, under my bed, under my car, and having my eyes closed while in the shower.  Most of the time, I can talk myself out of being afraid... but not always.

2.  I have several different Chapter 1's from books I've started to write since the age of 7.  The first outline I made is terrible.  I can't really figure out what my plot was.  But some of the later story ideas still have potential. Maybe someday.

3.  I get excessive bursts of energy when I get excited about something.  I'll jump up and down, shake my hands out, run/skip/gallop/jump around our small apartment, and squeal.  These "episodes" will last anywhere from 5 seconds to over an hour.  I usually reign that part of me in while out in public, but it does slip out at times.  

4.  I finished day 4 this morning of my new goal to read the entire standard works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints in 1 year.  

5.  I have a cowlick in my left eyebrow that my mother used to try to tape down to fix.  It looked like this kid's picture. Since college, I trim it down so its not as noticeable.  I often consider letting it grow back out.

6.  Xan and I fought more our first year of dating than our first 3 years of married life combined.  Marriage has been good to us and I'm really glad we stuck it out that first year. 

7.  I am currently wondering if I would enjoy a career in Occupational Therapy
