Random Facts Friday 2

It’s Friday after 2 snow days and I’m feeling kind of scatterbrained, which means it’s time for another Random Facts Friday post!

1. I love reality TV. I don’t always have time to watch TV but when I do, I just want to watch shows that are entertaining and don’t make me think too hard- The Biggest Loser, Dancing with the Stars, the Kardashians, Jersey Shore… I could keep going. I am actually really embarrassed by that list.

2. I have totaled 3 cars in my lifetime. The first was the summer before my senior year in high school. I had an old Plymouth Sundance that didn’t have great tires and was driving in the pouring rain. I hydroplaned into a telephone pole. The second was during my freshman year of college. I was driving home for my grandpa’s funeral on Valentines Day and it was snowing. The roads were bad and everyone on the road was driving slowly, including me. I hit a patch of ice and my car spun around so that I was horizontal with the road. While I tried to get back to facing the right direction a car came speeding behind me and hit me on my passenger side, causing me to go off to the side in a ditch. The third time was two years ago when I was driving through my apartment neighborhood and a man pulled backwards out of his parking spot really fast without looking, slamming into my passenger side. Thankfully I was fine in all of these accidents. But it definitely makes me feel like a bad driver!

3. I love tequila. I love it in mixed drinks, margaritas, and even straight shots with lime and salt. It’s been a really long time since I’ve had it though. At our wedding reception Kevin took off my garter to the song “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” and pretended to pull a little bottle of tequila out from under my dress. Then he drank it. Haha!

4. I never really learned how to swim until last year, when I finally swallowed my pride and signed up for lessons at my gym.

5. I really think that baby snot is grosser than baby poop. Although now that we are into solids I may be changing that opinion, based on what I’ve seen so far!

6. I really don’t like talking on the phone and making phone calls. I don’t know why. I’d rather talk in person or text or email.

7. I think I am a hypochondriac. I always think there is something wrong with me, and I worry about everything health related. I am pretty sure this is connected to my mom passing away from pancreatic cancer when I was 17. It was really unexpected and happened 10 months after diagnosis. Now I am paranoid and hate going to the doctor or hospitals.

8. I have a bad habit of leaving cabinets and doors open when I leave the room. I also leave lights on, which used to drive my dad crazy and now drives Kevin crazy too.

9. I am a clean freak when it comes to dirt and germs, but I’m actually a messy person in terms of clutter and keeping things organized around my house. To me, clutter isn’t “dirty” and I know where everything is that I need. Kevin is the same way. It only bothers me when it becomes too much, then I get annoyed and go on a big organizing/cleaning spree.

10. I am a very visual person. I can remember things photographically like notes I have written, or where to turn if I’m driving by the scenery and landmarks, rather than names of streets. I am also very good at remembering faces and things that people wore.

11. I am a huge list maker and calendar lover. My planner is my best friend, and everyday I make a general to-do list and a school one that has everything I need to do at work each day, I also keep a running weekly and monthly calendar in my planner, as well as a big family calendar in our kitchen.

12. Even when I was at my highest pregnancy weight (156), I still didn’t weigh as much as my highest weight ever (160), which I hit during my freshman year in college right before I started running. I want to do a flashback post soon to give you a glimpse of the old me!

13. Sometimes I think I have psychic ability, because I will think about a song while I’m in the car and it will come on the radio. Does this happen to anyone else?

14. I went to Penn State for college from 2004-2008 and had some of the best years of my life. And no, I don’t want to talk about the current events that have given my school a bad name. I will always be a proud Penn Stater!

Your turn! Tell me something random about you! Where did you go to college? Do you love lists, reality tv, and tequila? Are you messy like me? I want to hear it all!

  1. I love reality tv! I’ll have to catch up on shows while I’m home with the baby. My husband hates it, haha.

    I went to the University of Florida, go gators!

  2. I second on 6,8 and 12.
    I went college in Argentina, I don’t like tequila or any alcoholic drink, I don’t watch much TV. and I’m not organized. I just started wring lists recently because my memory is fading too fast nowadays! πŸ™‚

  3. I too have an ongoing todo list at school, and I prefer talking to people in person rather than on the phone (though I think that is mainly the result of me being an introvert). Unfortunately, Matt and I don’t match when it comes to organizational styles–he is like you and Kevin, while I value organization more than clean floors and such. And as for Penn State, you know I’m with you! My dad is an alum, my mom took classes there, and Matt and I met there while getting our degrees. I will always love that school. WE ARE!

  4. Hope you had an awesome race today!! Can’t wait for the post!
