25 Things.

Hey, I have a blog that I never write in.  So here’s a list of 25 things that I put on Facebook.  Slightly edited.
  1. The other day, a guy thought I was in high school.  I took this as a compliment and not a comment on my outfit at the time.
  2. I often get confused for a college student.  I figure it’s good to look young, though it can get annoying to continually be confused for an undergraduate intern.
  3. Secretly, I think I look much better than I did in college.  If nothing else, I’m much healthier.  I would have laughed at you if you told me that five years after graduation, I would be running 10 mile races.
  4. I’m definitely a better person than I was in college.
  5. I think I have a problem with accumulating books and dvds.  I discovered that I have over 150 books in my personal library that I have yet to read.  But my apartment is a great place to be on a rainy day.
  6. I’m slightly obsessed with budgeting.  While others might point and laugh, this means that I have money to go on vacation (or buy books and dvds) and feel less stressed about the economy.  But only a little less stressed.
  7. Were the economy better, I would probably quit my job in order to focus full time on job hunting.  My current job is slowly driving me crazy.  But I really like paychecks.  And health insurance.
  8. I agree with Obama that D.C. has no idea how to deal with inclement weather.  But I do like that if it snows enough (read: 4 inches), my office will be closed.
  9. I have four birthmarks, but I bet that my mom is the only other person who knows where all four are.  I only dislike one, and that’s because people continually think it is dirt or makeup and try to rub it off.  Some even tell me I’m wrong when I say “No, that’s a birthmark, it won’t rub off.”  Some people are not smart.
  10. I bought a Wii Fit, and the people who say it’s not a workout are lying.  Okay, so you could make it very easy for yourself, but if you do the yoga and strength exercises, it’s not a bad workout.  It will never replace my 40 minute cardio sessions, but it’s a good addition.
  11. I have two cats who I adore, but I really wish that the one would not insist on getting up before 8:00 every day.  Weekends are for sleeping in.  The other cat understands this perfectly.
  12. I like living in D.C., but I miss Midwestern sensibilities.  I don’t miss getting stuck behind farm equipment on the road though.
  13. I used to be a closet sci-fi geek.  I think it’s safe to say I’m out of the closet on that one.
  14. I really miss my law school workload.  I know, it’s crazy, but I liked spending hours reading Con Law and Criminal Law and Juvenile Law.  Contracts, I don’t so much miss.
  15. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  I still think Ninja would be a good job title.  It would look sweet on a business card, that’s for sure.  
  16. I get irritated by happily ever after movies, but I get mad when a movie doesn’t have a happy ending either.  I think this is a battle I will never win.
  17. I sometimes wonder where I would be in life if I had followed my dreams.  Probably not as successful as I am now, but I’m not sure if that’s consolation or not.  It’s nice to have a steady job though.
  18. I would like to quit my job and be a writer.  First, I need to improve my writing skills.  Or just marry a millionaire.
  19. I really love to dance, and am completely awful at it, and really regret never taking dance lessons as a kid, but none of this stops me from making a total fool of myself and loving every minute of it.
  20. The Giving Tree still makes me cry.
  21. In high school, I played the Fairy Godmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and I absolutely loved the looks of awe and wonder on the little kids’ faces when they came to see the show.  I felt like I really was magical.
  22. I love The Muppets and am highly disappointed in the new version of Sesame Street.  Did any kid really think that it was a good idea to be like Cookie Monster and only eat cookies?  Kids are smarter than that.  Besides, he had Captain Vegetable to counter him.
  23. I took the same oath for my job that Joe Biden took.  I think his job is slightly more important though.
  24. I really love to bake, but I never do it because I also love to eat what I bake, and I would prefer to never have to break out the fat clothes again.
  25. Making a list of 25 random things about myself was a much harder task than I thought it would be.

One thought on “25 Things.

  1. Regarding 1, 2, & 3 — my daughter (who is one or two years younger than you — she’s 26, will be 27 in May) complains about always being carded in bars. This really frosts her when we all go out to dinner and she gets carded when her brother (three years and six days younger) sitting at the same table gets served a beer without question. I just tell her to relax and enjoy looking youthful.

    Regarding number 23 — perhaps, but you are definitely a lot smarter.
