Okay Okay, Here's My Seven

Miss Lindsay Guard tagged me about 2 weeks ago with her list of 7 interesting things about herself and she asked me to do the same. It took me awhile to get around to it, but here it goes:

Numero Uno: I love speaking in Spanish! I'm by no means fluent, but I really wish I were! I've always wanted to go live with a family in Spain, Costa Rica or Mexico for a semester to learn the language better conversationally. Maybe someday I will?

Numero Dos: I HATE swimming! I love the ocean and being at the beach, I love taking a dip in a pool on a hot summer day, and I most certainly love being out on the lake with my cousins' boat, but I hate swimming. I've never been that good at it and I've always wanted to do a triathalon, but the swimming part freaks me out! I'm completely petrified of diving into a body of water with 500 other people at the same time. I'm positive I would drowned and no one would know till' the race was over! This is also the reason I've never consistently pursued surfing either. I'm not afraid of sharks, just swimming : )

Numero Tres: My favorite color is orange. My bedroom is red, turquoise and brown and everybody thinks turquoise is my favorite color, but there are wrong. Orange is my favorite color because it makes me happy. Orange is a happy color : )

Numero Cuatro: I don't plan on living in Southern California the rest of my life. I don't know where I'll move to, but I've always wanted to live in a place that has all four seasons. I used to think that Southern California was the greatest, because I could snowboard, go to the beach and go to the river all in one weekend, but it just doesn't appeal to me as much anymore. I'll come home for holidays and I can go to those places during vacation. I would rather have snow during the winter and red leaves all during the fall : ) Plus, I really enjoy cold weather!

Numero Cinco: I can be very outgoing and high-energy at times, but I've discovered this past year that I think I'm actually an introvert at heart. I'm most happy in one-on-one conversations with a person that REALLY knows me, I feel most peaceful and content when I'm by myself in nature with my journal and a pen, I love being awake when everyone else is asleep, I don't actually like big parties I just want everyone to feel included, I love playing my guitar by myself and I'm petrified of performing, I'd rather go on a walk with a cup o' joe by myself or with a friend than go to some sort of social gathering, and there's nothing I admire more than those people that live savory but quiet lives. My self-induced trap is busyness. I'm currently on the search for the root of this terrible habbit that often makes me so unhappy.

Numero Seis: I drive barefoot. I don't know why. I just prefer it.

Numero Siete:
I wake up hungry every morning. It's kind of weird but food is pretty much my first thought in the morning. I can't even start getting ready for my day until after I've eaten breakfast. Even if I'm planning on going out to breakfast for some reason, I always eat before as well. I just don't function too well until after I've eaten.

So these are my seven. I'm sure if I had asked around first, I would have come up with some more bizarre things about me : ) but nevertheless, this is me.

I tag: Amy, Annie, C.J., Courtney, Luke, Marge & Shaukie

Oregon is the answer to one of those.
And the orange colored pencil fits with one other the others.

i have to agree with your number 5. i'm always on the go and always hyper, but i really like being alone. i love watching TV and movies by myself or maybe with just a couple close friends. same as you, i like having quiet time by myself in the mornings and if that's taken away i kind of have a weird day. it's weird because i definitely feel like an introvert at heart, but i'm seen as an extrovert. and sometimes i don't want to be home, I feel like I have to get out. but even then I just want to take a drive by myself, or maybe just have a cup of coffee with a friend.
