A little getting to know you time

on May 21, 2012

Morning!!  I hope that you are having a great morning so far.  🙂  I have my second Orthodontist appointment this morning!  The last time we spoke about it I told you that I was going to have to wear a mouthpiece for six months in order to get my mouth ready for braces.  Um, I really wanted to walk out of the office on my first visit wearing the braces, but if this is what has to be done then let’s get the ball rolling!

Last night I threw together this little getting to know you survey.  I found some questions that I thought would be interesting to answer.  🙂

 

1.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I am actually doing it!  I am getting braces!  This is something that I have always wanted to do, but never went thru with it.  I am finally doing it. 🙂  It’s going to be a process, but I am so looking forward to the change.

 

2.  How would you describe yourself?

Hmm, this one is actually hard for me.  How do you describe yourself???  I love to make people laugh, so I guess I would start with my sense of humor.  Do you also want to know that I am a control freak and a perfectionist??  🙂

 

3.  What kind of books do you like to read? 

The last book series that I read was the Hunger Games series and it was really good.  I recently picked up Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter the other day.  It’s interesting, but not as into it as the former.  I love anything by Nicholas Sparks too. 🙂

 

4.  Have you ever played an instrument?

Um, does the Recorder count?  This is a flute type of thing that they gave to us in the fourth grade, where I attended school.  I can remember loving this thing so much and our teacher told us that if we could hang on to it the entire school year we could keep it.  Did I?  Somehow I managed to keep it up until the day before school ended.  Really?!?

 

5.  Who is your best friend?

That would be Angey 🙂

 

6.  Do you like cats or dogs? 

Hmm, this one is tough for me.  I love them both!  Animals in general really.  🙂

 

7.  Would you consider yourself shy or outgoing? 

Outgoing definitely.  I didn’t used to be, but somewhere along the way, I just changed.  It’s funny though, when it comes to the opposite sex, I am not.  I think with so many years of being heavy I have just drilled it into my mind that most men are going to reject me.

 

8.  Spender or a Saver? 

Unfortunately, I am a spender.

 

9.  What would you consider your strength?

Probably my sense of humor.  I just like to make sure that people are comfortable and laughing usually helps. 🙂   Sometimes, though, what I think is funny may not be funny to someone else. 😉

 

10.  Do you smoke?

That would be a no.

 

11.  What is your happiest memory?

That would be taking family vacations.  You know, the ones that happen before you enter adulthood and you can’t go because of work.  My parents had this station wagon, and then later on a Suburban, and they would make this bed in the back, throw my brother and I in there and we were off!

 

12.  Do you get annoyed easily? 

I wish that I didn’t, but I do.  Unfortunately, I can only take some people in small doses.

 

13.  Have you ever been out of the country?  Where?

I have.  I have been to Mexico 5 times and Kazakhstan once.  All on mission trips.   I wouldn’t change a thing on any of them.  LOVE them!

 

14.  Do you drink?

I don’t, but I don’t mind one now and again socially.

 

15.  Romantic or Action?

Hmm, it just depends on what kind of mood that I am in.  🙂  I like them both!

 

16.  What would you consider a weakness that you have?

Probably the fact that I do get annoyed easily.  (see #12)  I also am a perfectionist, and this can be a very bad thing sometimes.  If things don’t go a certain way, I have a tendency to be bothered by that and then I get all stressed out and it just gets ugly. 🙂  This is something that I am working on.

 

17.  What is the last movie that you went to see?

The Hunger Games

 

18.  Sweet or Salty?

Sweet!  I have a huge sweet tooth. 🙂  Some of my favorites include anything with chocolate.

 

19.  Do you drink coffee?

Um, yes.

 

20.  What do you like to do in your spare time?

Work out, bake, hang out with friends, read.  🙂  One of my favorite things to do is bake!

What do you get when you add these two items and one banana?????
