Moi

I definitely stole this from Taylor, but I'm in desperate need of something to do at work. So I'll pretend that people besides my friends actually read this and share some random tidbits about me. And let's be honest, everyone's favorite subject to talk about is themselves.
1. I have two different ears. Upon inspection, they do not look like each other at all.
2. I am obsessed with animals. All animals. I think skunks are adorable and I'd love to pet one.
3. On a similar note, I've always wanted a pet raccoon.
4. My mom calls me Tootsie.
5. I have no discernable talents.
6. Traveling is a passion of mine.
7. I have been to some random places, such as Tibet.
8. I want to live abroad some day, preferably somewhere in Europe (London or Paris, please).
9. I want to hike the Amazon Trail.
10. I took dance (tap, jazz, ballet, and even a forray into tumbling) from age 6-16. I have terrible recital tapes to prove it.
11. I once tried to learn how to play the electric guitar that I own. Fail.
12. I went to a medical magnet school because my childhood dream was to be a doctor.
13. My mom made me apply to two ivy league schools.
14. I got an interview to one of those schools, which made me feel like a badass.
15. ...until they rejected me.

17. However, I absolutely love Texas A&M University
18. I've never been to Disneyworld.
19. I speak in accents (mostly British) and makes lots of random noises.
20. I did not drink until I turned 21. Go me.
21. I love European history. Especially the Middle Ages.
22. I have always had a fascination with the Knights Templar/any conspiracy involving them.
23. As a matter of fact, I enjoy conspiracies of all kinds. Let's talk about the Masons in America.
24. I have a ginger boyfriend.
25. I rescued a cat named Chester and gave him to said boyfriend. Chester is also a ginger.
26. I love the smell of books.
27. I never want to go into any kind of credit card debt.
28. But I love to shop.
29. I lived in L.A. for a summer while I did an internship.
30. I witnessed someone doing cocaine during this time. It's a good story, so you should ask me about it.
31. I love fashion, but I'm never very good at putting outfits together for myself.
32. I love the Twilight series and I am not ashamed.
33. I think New York City is the greatest place on earth.
34. I have a half sister who is 20 years older than me.
35. My mom bakes the greatest cookies on this planet and to this day I cannot replicate them (even following her recipe).
36. Not finding a job until 9 months after graduating is something that ashames me.
37. The one thing I'm thankful for during that period is being able to spend so much time with my mom.
38. I wish I had one best friend who I'd been best friends with since childhood. I have many close friends and have gone through multiple "best friends."
39. When I was little, I had an imaginary friend named Polly. She wore bluejean overalls (gross) and had super long hair that she wore in braids. She also had 100 children that she gave away one by one.
40. I easily get caught up in my day dreams.
41. I have the BEST day dreams.

57. I hated boys pretty much up until high school.
58. When I was little, I ran around wearing blond wigs because I wanted to look like Barbie.

60. One of my favorite past times is driving around fancy neighborhoods oohing and aahing over the houses.
61. I would consider myself a film buff, but I don't like the classics.
62. I strongly dislike tiny dogs. I'm sorry, but teeny tiny yorkies should not be allowed to exist.
63. My parent's house is filled with urns of cremated animals. This sounds creepy, I know, but my mom could never bear the thought of having our beloved pets in the ground. This way they get to stay around.

80. I don't handle criticism well.
