TAG: 25 Facts

Hey everyone! So today I'm doing a popular facebook tag. I know on youtube/blogger it's usually only five and you elaborate more, but I liked the idea of 25 more. so.. here goes!

25 things..

1.) I never believed in love at first sight until I stepped outside Heathrow Airport and met the great city of London.

2.) I'm quasi-type A. I'm obsessed with storage systems, but sometimes I'm too tired to put everything away.

3.) For me summer is about catching up with some good books :)

4.) I actually really enjoyed working in retail, I even liked putting out product. I felt like it was a puzzle I was putting together.

5.) I am shy, and awkward. I'm HORRIBLE with eye contact. I'm quite open now, and I do have a lot of friends, but to new people I'm a bit invisible.

6.) To piggyback on that, I am in a sorority which really helped with the whole shy thing.

7.) I was always a bit of a tomboy, until senior year of highschool. Freshman year of college I became obsessed with Disney Princesses, and second semester I joined a sorority.

8.) I may be a member of the 'princess family', blonde, a Communications major (stereotyped as the "easy" major) and own a 6lb dog, but I am by now means a "spoiled princess."

9.) Im terrified that people will take what I am saying the wrong way so I over use smiley faces. :) :) :)

10.) I cannot stand snow. I can't tolerate cold weather, even though where I live its about 40-60 degrees all year round, and I hate the feeling of rain drops and wet snow hitting me.

11.) Car accidents, particularly pertaining to snow, have taken too many people away from me. Another reason why I dislike snow, and why the use of seatbelts is NEVER a question in my car.

12.) I really dislike that you can't put words to ever feeling. I try until I get as close as I possibly can.

13.) I forgive way too easily, Im a bit passive. But I'll never forget.

14.) I'm an extremely picky eater, so a lot of people think I don't eat much. Not true :)

15.) I'm a huge city girl, and have only recently accepted suburbs as suitable. But the city has to be very close by! My dream is to live in London.

16.) Birthdays are the ultimate holiday in my book. Its the one day a year where you can celebrate being you!

17.) I had both pneumonia and scarlet fever in 1st grade, but I never got the chicken pox.

18.) I could eat burritos and bagels w/cream cheese (not together..) for the rest of my life and be happy.

19.) I identify with both dogs and cats. I am extremely loyal and affectionate (sometimes needy) like a dog, but fiercely independent like a cat.

20.) I may be short, but my mom's family is extremely tall and nordic. I'm almost a full 1/4 Norwegian.

21.) I was and always will be a daddy's girl. I'm his spitting image and have his good humor which helps me keep his memory with me everyday. I am close with my mom now as well.

22.) My parents were happily together for 21 years even though they never married. They were only separated when my dad passed from heart failure last year.

23.) I have probably been through a lot more than the average girl my age, but I still consider myself to be extremely lucky and try to live my life in stride.

24.) I have panic attacks, and have for 10 years.

25.) I am genuinely happy! :)

I'd love to hear facts about all of you! So I tag all of my readers, 5 facts, 10 or even 25!

I'll also have a haul/review post something this weekend, probably sunday!



  1. I'm not sure many people can say they are genuinely happy and truly mean it.

  2. mmmm bagels and cream cheese... that sounds so delicious right now you have no idea. I loved this post. It was very insightful to your life.
