'Be yourself - not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be.'

'Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.'

I prefer reading books over watching movies.

I'm a cuddle bug.

I like frozen yogurt more than ice cream.

I'd rather wear sweats or jeans and a tanktop than dresses/skirts.  (it depends on the occasion though, of course)

I love decorating my room with posters and drawings.

I have an addiction to music.

I love Reese's peanut butter cups.

I'd rather go for a hike than a drive.

I've been told that I'm very 'sassy'.  I think this word describes me quite well actually.

I blast music when I'm in the car alone and sing to my heart's content.

I love giving - whether blessing someone through a talent God has given me or just random little things that people need.

I love pillows and blankets.

My favorite drinks are green or chai tea lattes, strawberry lemonade, sweet tea, Italian sodas, and water.

I have two journals that I'm filling with favorite quotes.

I'm not huge into jewelry.  My favorites are rings, necklaces and earrings.  But I do have a few special bracelets and anklets that I wear on occasion.

I hate watermelon.

I am a totally random sort of person.

I get as excited about new music as I do about finding money.

I love being near water - the ocean, rivers, lakes, creeks.

Blueberries are my favorite.

None of the furniture matches in my room.

I have a board hung on my wall that I call my 'prayer board'.  I have prayer requests pinned on it and verses and stuff.

I make wishes at 11:11.

Music is such a big part of my life.  If I'm not singing, I'm humming.  If I'm not humming, there's a song playing over and over in my mind.

I love audio dramas.

I like it when people have non-password protected wifi.

Weddings make me so, so happy.

I've never broken a bone in my body.

I don't have a very good sense of direction.

I don't have very many friends.  I only have four best friends and a lot of acquaintances.

I keep all my movie tickets.

I'm listening to music right now.

I love traditions with family and/or friends.

I stink at sports.

I got my license in my Dad's Subaru...which is now my Subaru.

I have my Mama's Russian cheekbones and jawline, but my Dad's Peruvian nose.  My hair and eyes from both sides.

I love exploring.  I actually enjoy getting lost, because I have to explore to find my way out of somewhere.

I take notes during church.

I've collected Nancy Drew books since I was about 13.  I need 10 more to have the whole collection.

I'm a night owl.

My favorite movie genre is action-packed/thriller.  And I believe every story is a mystery and must, must have romance (even if it's slight).

I've cut my hair and donated it to Locks of Love.

The longest phone call I've ever had was 4 1/2 hours long.

I keep a blessings journal.

I'm going to change this world and leave a mark on it.  I'm going to do something big for Jesus.


This post is proof of how random I can be.

Oh and I got champion prize for that photo! ^
