About Me

Basics:

Female. 24. Originally from Milwaukie, Oregon. Studied at UO in Eugene (GO DUCKS!) and London, England. JAD major. Communication Studies minor. Two parents. Two brothers. One boyfriend. One surrogate doggie.

Other tid-bits:

One of my (many) nicknames is “moose.” Yes it’s a little unusual for a girl to have that nickname, but I like it! On top of that, my dad calls me “goose.” I am just hoping that there is no correlation with the movie “Top Gun.” That would both be corny and a little mean.

I used to believe that King Kong lived in the space behind my bathroom door. I would talk to him when I had to pee in the middle of the night and he would make sure the boogie man didn’t bother me.

I am terrified of spiders yet have no problem with snakes. I have a theory that people are either afraid of one or the other, but not both.

      *on a side note:  I am mostly responsible for a snake that ended up in my cross country coach’s tent freshman year of high school.

I love to bake. Anything from bread to pizza to cookies to brownies. Good thing I run 🙂

I grew up with only brothers and spent half my life being raised like a boy. Because of this I am not as prissy as a lot of girls and don’t really understand a lot of the drama that they create. Thus, living with girls in college was quite an experience.

If I could have one wish I would like to be fluent in all the languages of the world. I currently only know english and even that comes with its problems.

I have always wanted to dye my hair a different color (I am naturally blonde) but am too afraid of the results. I settle for highlights.

I would love to be able to compete in a triathalon at least once in my life.

I try to believe that everything happens for reason but sometimes it is really hard.

If I see a movie I like I can watch it once a day for several days in a row and not get tired of it.

One of my biggest fears in life is drowning. I nearly did once on Lake Constance and another time on the Clackamas River. However, I absolutely LOVE to swim.

I am stronger and tougher than a lot of people think I am. I hate when people act like I am frail or will break and love proving them wrong.

You may have gotten this from the previous comment but I can be really competitive.

I am religious but do not wear my faith on my sleeve like a lot of people I know.

I love singing at the top of my lungs in the shower or when no one is home.

I have been drawing since I was really little. I started by drawing the characters from the Berenstein Bears and have worked my way up to portraits done in graphite pencil, my favorite medium.

I once slept on concrete. I do not recommend this.

I sometimes create really awkward food combinations just to see what they taste like (think bananas in pasta sauce) and am willing to try ketchup on just about anything.

I have 22 first cousins ranging in age from younger than 10 to mid to late thirties. I am not really sure; it is kind of hard to keep track.

I always have at least 5 different tubes of chapstick open and in various locations.

I do not need glasses but I sometimes wear them because they make feel studious.

  1. Wow, # 20 is so me.
    I took it too far a few weeks ago though…and got my arm fractured.
    I love how you made your “about me” a bunch of random facts, that’s a good idea that I just might have to steal. 😉

  2. Yeah, the difference between those who know me and those who don’t is pretty funny. Don’t know me=barely touch me. Know me=30 minute wrestling match+several body slams (this is not an exaggeration, my friend actually did this in his effort to throw me into the ocean)
