What You May Not Have Known About Me….

Jordyn tagged me on facebook for a meme in which I am supposed to list “16 random facts/goals/whatevers  about myself.” I’m doing that here instead of an facebook. You know, ’cause I’m such a rebel.

  1. My favorite movies are the Lord of the Rings trilogy. When I watch them, I do so consecutively, and thus spend nine hours watching movies. It is quite fun. And semi-ridiculous. And I’ve done it a good fifteen times. This is many hours of my life. Yet, I don’t even like the LotR books. 
  2. I am planning/hoping to spend five weeks in Europe with my friends this summer! This is hinged upon my bank account, so I must work many more hours than is fun at Kmart. 
  3. I don’t want to spend too much time in one place. I want to drift.
  4. My school recently blocked our personal emails and put in place a system which filters out “bad” key words; emails with these words are sent to the vice principal for screening.  Since I am often bored in school and looking for ways to amuse myself, I spent an afternoon sending emails without bad contexts but with bad words in them, until I was called for a conversation in the office. Somehow, everyone in school now knows about it and loves my fight about evil censorship and I have a thick discipline file full of those emails. It was fun.
  5. I only swear in my head (as opposed to out loud or in text or whatever) 98% of the time. But my inner monologue is often quite inappropriate. 
  6. I like to dance. However, my dancing, and I am not exaggerating, is something like a three-legged elephant trying to dance Swan Lake. It does not happen in public. 
  7. I get depressed when I don’t see the sun, and I think nature is beautiful, but I’d never describe myself as “outdoorsy”; my family loves to camp, but I don’t understand sleeping on the hard ground when you’ve got a perfectly nice bed not far away (they don’t go anywhere new to camp, they just enjoy sleeping on the ground twenty miles from home). 
  8. I can’t wait to go away to college, away from home, for several reasons–but a big one is a person who matters more to me than almost anyone, but at the same time throws my whole world out of whack. I want to feel stable and steady and independent again, and I can’t when he’s around. 
  9. I want to feel like I matter as much to other people as they do to me, but I don’t. 
  10. I always want to write, but lately I have no idea how to get the words out. 
  11. I used to believe that the majority of people were fairly sane/intelligent. Then I got a job at Kmart. I don’t think that anymore. Most people are crazy or mean or stupid or unstable or some combination of those things. 
  12. I am seventeen. I’ll be eighteen in April. I have no plans of ever getting a driver’s license, for numerous reasons. I have to take my passport with me when I go places where I’ll need identification, like the SAT. It’s kind of ridiculous. I should get some other sort of official identity.
  13. I really love tall buildings. I love being at the top and looking out over things. One of my favorite memories is standing at the top of the Empire State Building at night and looking at the lights of New York. I also love lights.
  14. I get cold really really easily….and I want to move North. Crazy? Maybe. It’s the culture of the South that I don’t like, though, not the weather. 
  15. I’m really, really bad at following through with commitments. It’s one of my biggest flaws. No matter how much I try, I am terrible at following through, and I hate that part of me. I want to be reliable and dependable, but I never have been.
  16. I have maps up on the walls of my room, and I spend so much time staring at them trying to figure out where I can go just so I’ll be gone….But I’m always here. Always still here.

If you want to do this, consider yourself tagged. If not, whatever.

    #4 = HILARIOUS. I wish I had an opportunity to do that, lol.
    #9 = Same here. I wonder how many people in the world feel this way; we should have a club.
    #8 = Yeah, people like that usually aren’t good for you is my opinion, unless you can find a way to have them in your life and yet NOT throw everything out of whack.
    #15 = I’m the opposite. A little too reliable/dependable maybe.
