Meme Time

First of all, thanks for all the sweet birthday wishes. I think I am a little wishy washy with the way I feel about being 29. Most of it has to do with being away from my Babers right now. We are miles apart during the week and will be for the next year or so. I want nothing more than to have him here, to take care of him, to have fun and be silly with him, and to share the ins and outs of every day life. I think more than anything I had hoped at 29 I would be making new steps in my life, steps I'm just itching to make and really look forward to. But you just have to take life as it comes and I just have to focus on that.

Okay okay, enough of the blabbering! I'm at home sick right now and thought I'd take advantage and blog away.

Kelly tagged me on this meme and I just have to say this one was tough to finish!

5 Things that I do, did, or like that I'm proud of, but that others may think are totally lame

1. I still twirl. I took dance (ballet, tap & jazz) for 10 years growing up. Like some young teens I sort of grew out of dance classes and recitals, but I never lost the passion. To this day I still twirl and do dance moves at random when I hear a song that moves me to do so. I may not do it in front of many people, but my living room furniture gets the occasional mini-recital. This, I understand to be extremely lame and quite dorky.

2. I craft. Yep, I’m a crafty little fella. I love being creative and feel the need to have my hands in something a least a few times a week, be it scrapbooking, painting, jewelry making, whatever. Might be on the verge of lamesville, but I’m proud to be a little artist!

3. I’m emotional. Sometimes when my new niece Kaitlyn does something really cute like chuckle or stand for a few seconds before falling on her butt, tears spring to my eyes. When I’m upset with someone, whether I’m angry or just sad, I cannot control my tears and my voice always gets shaky. I used to hate it, but now I know it’s just a part of me that will never change and I have accepted it. Cry baby? Nope. Just in touch with my emotions.

4. I love channels that are basically made for women. This includes TLC and the Oxygen channel. I’m not the girl who pretends she watches the news every single night, or who watches ESPN just to be cool with the guys. I watch television for women. And you can think its lame, but I’m proud of it, dang it.

5. I won the science fair and went to regionals. To be short, in high school I grew 10 different kinds of molds in petree dishes and won, which sent me to regionals. In high school I was a cheerleader and voted "most fun", so it didn't seem the norm for my "type". But, I was extremely excited and proud of myself, even if I did make me look like a dork.

So yeah, that was a toughie. My turn, my turn! I'm tagging:

The following comments happen when I haven't had enough sleep and my eyes are watering, and I can't trust what I think I'm seeing, but I'll comment anyway.

1. I still hurl.
Have you tried not drinking as much, or are you having morning sickness?

2. I crap.
Um, trust me, we all do.

3. I’m emo.
You don't have the right hair to be emo.

4. I love Chanel thats basically made for women.
..But Chanel perfume is made for women..Do they have it for guys now too?

5. I went to the science fair and went to regionals.
Cool, but were you just visiting or did you win something?

TLC isn't really a girlie channel. They don't have shows about how a girl gets pregnant in her teenage years and either has to give it up for adoption, have the baby, or fall down the stairs and miscarry.

In my video-posting madness, I wasn't aware of the tag. I'm off to do this one! Thanks!

The more I get to know about you, the more I feel like we are the same person! LOL!

I think emotional crafters are cool! Does that make me lame?

My instant tears get worse as I age. Congrats on the science fair! That is a cool accomplishment!
