27 Random Facts About Me For My 27th Birthday
I have lived in 3 states, 6 cities, 7 houses, and 3 college apartments. I have lived in Klamath Falls (in the same house) for longer than I ever lived anywhere else.
I am an actual tree hugger. When I was little my family and I would go on a walk before bed every single night and I would hug all of the trees on our street good night. I would also carry a bag and pick up all the trash I could find!
Finishing a good book or a TV series makes me really depressed. I miss the characters when they're gone.
I'm an animal person in general and really love cats and dogs but I'm scared of dogs that I don't know, especially big ones even though the only dog to ever attack me was a tiny (but seriously fat) Dachshund that belonged to my Grandparents.
When I was little I got 2nd and 3rd degree burns all over my legs. The first doctors my parents took me to said they couldn't do anything for me and that I would be covered in scars for the rest of my life but my parents thought they were wrong and took me to a specialist. I only have one visible scar remaining on my left foot and I like it. It's a constant reminder that my parents will always fight for me.
I have a lot of scars but my most memorable are the one on my chin from a rollerblading accident when I had to have 7 stitches and my friends and family called me Shaggy (as in Scooby Doo because it looked like I had his goatee) and the other is from a boating accident when I fell off a tube and got wrapped up in the rope and dragged under water for some unknown length of time.
I have a very large personal space bubble. I also don't really like to be touched.
I still have every stuffed animal that meant something to me and I can remember all of their names.
My eyes change colors – blue/green/gray.
I eat muffins and cupcakes upside down because I always have to save the best bite for last.
I'm afraid of spiders so my Dad got me a tarantula when I was younger and I hated it. I'm still afraid of them but I suck them up using my vacuum so I'm the one in control!
I'm terrified of frogs. Long story short, they used to come up through the toilets when I lived in Florida. Creepy.
My house burned down when I was 4.
I had a severe allergic reaction to my 1st MMR shot and almost died. The CDC actually wanted to study me. When I moved to Florida they wouldn't let me start school without getting another. Luckily, I didn't have a reaction to that one.
My favorite color is turquoise.
I've seen the movie Titanic over 50 times.
I was such a ham when I was little that talent scouts approached my parents many times wanting to sign me but they refused since they wanted me to have a normal childhood.
I like most veggies, and I don't eat meat, but I can't stand cauliflower or eggplant.
I have double jointed shoulder blades and arms.
I can't touch my toes.
I'm a big fan of writing lists, about anything and everything.
I've done 2 beauty/scholarship pageants coming in as 1st runner up in one of them.
I have had heart surgery.
I have only ever broken 2 bones – my arm and my tailbone.
I have never been stung by a bee, wasp, or hornet.
Stephen King and Dean Koontz are my favorite authors.
I don't drink alcohol, at all.
