Thread: 25 Facts

  1. #1

    Default 25 Facts

    Ok, I'll admit, I got this idea from the Similarminds forums (before I came here). It was in their introductions forum, but I figured I'd throw it here. Basically, the idea is, you list 25 facts about yourself. I'll start (by copying and pasting my list from Similarminds, lol)

    1. I'm left-handed.
    2. I've lived in the same town all my life.
    3. I'm legally blind.
    4. I play piano by ear and am currently playing (and singing) at my dad's church.
    5. I am an ISTJ.
    6. I am a finance major.
    7. I was raised in the south by a Yankee (my mom) and a midwesterner (my dad).
    8. I just got married about four months ago to my best friend ever, the most awesome guy I've ever known.
    9. I used to be obsessed with message boards.
    10. Two of my favorite TV shows used to be House MD and Becker.
    11. I've had nine or ten brain surgeries from birth 'til I was in fourth grade (for water on the brain).
    12. I am a second/last-born child.
    13. I have a small obsession with miniatures.
    14. I've also always been fascinated with fake food (possibly because I was deprived of it as a child).
    15. I can say the alphabet backwards without hesitation. Before I got back in church, I could do this either drunk or sober.
    16. I can write backwards in cursive.
    17. I've lived about half my life in a trailer park.
    18. When I was a child, my grandma tried to scrub off my birthmark, which is between my "ringtoe" and my "pinky toe" on my right foot.
    19. I still can't ride a bike (other than a two-seater with someone else driving).
    20. I don't like dressing on my salad.
    21. Grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches rock, in my opinion.
    22. My husband runs two websites - The Coolest Website Ever and Don'tEatThis.net.
    23. I used to play Tetris (for Windows '95) constantly, until I lost the computer.
    24. My birthday is the same as Laura Bush's (only several years later) - and we also share first names.
    25. I was sorta named after my dad (Larry).
    By the way, I'm the girl in the picture, lol.... happily married though, so don't even...

    Heh. sometimes the need to shave my legs keeps me awake; so, I can kinda relate.

    13. I'm terrible at writing exams or essays I can't relate to.
    Me too. Thankfully, I've found, in college, they usually give more freedom of topic (and if not, I find a way to twist the topic into something I want to write about).

    25. I found this really hard to write for some reason.
    Don't worry. Me too. Why you think I had to copy/paste my original 25 answers from the other forum? It's harder than it looks!

    Yeah I can't cook or sew but I think the sewing is because of the hand-eye coordination disability as for the cooking my Dad can't cook either.

    I also failed P.E. in my last year of primary school and then got an A first year of high school

    Oh, I can cook quite well, thanks to my husband for teaching me just a few months ago. Yeah, I think alot of it has to do with who teaches you and how you're taught.

    I also failed P.E. in my last year of primary school and then got an A first year of high school
    Oh yeah, being legally blind, P.E. was not my strongsuit. You do not know HOW many times I got hit in the head with a basketball I didn't see coming... I think I counted nine times in one class! But they pretty much had to pass me, for pity's sake.

    23. I would kind of like to try raising goats and chickens even though I'm pretty sure I would get tired of it really fast.

    25. I think I have cute feet.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    being legally blind

    ... as opposed to being illegally blind?
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.
