5 Random Things About Me

Happy Friday! Are you as stoked that its Friday as I am? It’s been a long, busy week & my brain is pretty much fried. So here we go… 5 Random Things About Me!

1) I love Britney Spears way more than any 27-year-old adult woman should. I saw her in concert last summer & dressed as her for Halloween in college. Oh, & I still want her & Justin Timberlake to get back together.

2) I pretty much grew up on the back of a horse. I started riding when I was 5 years old & continued until college. I got my horse, Jesse, when I was 7 & I had him until he passed away when I was 21. He was my best friend & I still miss him every day.

3) When I was a kid, I either wanted to be a jockey or an opera singer. I used to run around the house singing at the top of my lungs pretending to be an opera singer. Not sure what happened to that dream. Stage fright maybe? I did sing karaoke to Guns N Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine” on a cruise ship once & stalked an American Idol finalist.

4) I’m addicted to Twitter. When I first made my account, I didn’t get it & thought it was dumb. That was in December 2008. I actually had my 25,000th tweet this morning & not surprisingly, it was about coffee:

5) I have a mildly unhealthy obsession with the Broadway musical “Wicked”. Last fall/winter, I found a lot of inspiration & strength in “Defying Gravity” & I still listen to it whenever I’m having a moment of self-doubt. Tess & I have been known the post the lyrics back & forth to one another on our Facebook walls.

  1. 1. I haaaate salmon (in all forms) but wish I liked it bc it’s so good for you.
    2. I know French, a little Spanish, and some Korean and can read biblical Hebrew.
    3. I used to sing and performed at a local mall once.
    4. Ice cream always has been and always will be my weakness.
    5. I’m allergic to all malt-beverages, which includes beer and wine coolers. Very sad.

  2. I love Wicked! Rent is my favorite, though!

    My randoms:

    1. I learned to swim before I could walk. I love the pool. But when it’s warm. I don’t do open water nonsense, hence why I won’t do a triathlon.
    2. Reason #2 I won’t do a triathlon–I was the last kid on the block to learn how to ride my bike. I still hate it.
    3. I was a cheerleader AND in show choir. So very Glee, but not good for the voice.
    4. I was high school valedictorian and voted lost likely to succeed. Nerd alert.
    5. In spite of being incredibly musically talented (I went to college on a piano scholarship), I cannot whistle.

  3. I LIVE for Wicked! I think I listen to the original soundtrack at least once a week. I can’t hear Defying Gravity or For Good without bawling.

    I rode a horse one time. I think a horse is an animal I have to love from a distance since I’m terrified of heights and being trampled to death.

    I love that you’re obsessed with Britney! I had to cut all ties during her crazy period, I’m far too co-dependent for that sort of thing.

    Love this post!

  4. whatever, Britney is awesome and anyone who says she isn’t is lying. Even crazy shaved-head Britney.
    And I really want to see Wicked! I love all the music and I am embarrassed I haven’t seen it!
