Not Engaged Yet

Three Random Facts.

Tell me three random things about you!

My three:
1. My name was supposed to be Vincent if I was a boy.
2. I have four sets of grandparents. (8 total)
3. I grew up with my cousin who was 8 days older then me. They dressed us like twins. We are still just as close now.

AND GO!

    1) I have huge feet.  Size 10/11
    2) I was an Apple snob before it was cool (Until FBD and I bought this computer 3 months ago I'd never owned anything other than a Mac.  We have an original 1986 Macintosh in my basement.  Take that, trendy kids!)
    3) I can't eat spicy foods.  Like anything.  They make me hella sick

    1. I can recite, from memory, the first several pages of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. (Does that honestly surprise anyone?) 2. I have had asthma since birth, but I wasn't diagnosed until age 3. 3. I minored in Spanish in college, and ended up only one course shy of a dual degree.

    1. Sweeteners and sugar substitutes offend me for no good reason.
    2. I love rainbows. More so the arrangement of colors than the natural phenomenon.
    3. Sometimes I talk really fast in order to get out what I have to say before anyone can get bored with listening to me... Effective method? not so much.

    1. I'm so broke right now, but I have found a job I truly enjoy. And it has nothing to do with the three fields I've previously studied (Political Science, German, and Meetings & Event Management).

    2. I think Jared Padalecki is super hot.

    3. I just ordered a neon pink vacuum cleaner.

    Me too! My parents bought the first Macintosh in 1984. We've just always had Apple products.

    1. I studied East Asian studies for three years of my college career. My foci in the major were North Korean history and Japanese language.

    2. My boyfriend and I met protesting against Scientology. I was protesting because of both their human rights abuses and practicing medicine without licenses and he was protesting because of their human rights abuses and how they attack journalists.

    3. Our dog Zoe is mentally challenged. My family rescued her when she was a puppy. She had been born to a breeder but she did not meet show quality because of the pattern on her coat, so she was not vaccinated or dewormed. She got very sick with kennel cough, conjunctivitis and worms -- our vet thought she had distemper. She had horrible, raging fevers and has brain damage because of how high her fevers got when she was ill. Because of this, she's kind of a handful, but we love her anyway.

    1. I've never broken a bone....

    2. I have a huge crush on Ryan Gosling <3

    3. About 3 years ago, I bought tickets to a concert completely on impulse; came out to close to $700 for 3 tickets. The concert was by my favorite singer. The concert was in Paris, France! :o  Once I snapped out of whatever overtook me, I realized now I had to plan (and save for :S) a trip to Paris for the following year. In the end, the Paris trip turned into a mini European trip that I shared with my family.... with the concert being the cherry on top! ;)

    1.) I can sing higher than the highest note in this aria (at around 0:50, and again at 1:10)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2ODfuMMyss

    2.) My sister is 8 years older than I am, and no, I wasn't an accident. When my aunt had my cousin, my mom got all nostalgic and decided she wanted another baby.

    3.) When I was a kid, I was allergic to chocolate. Thankfully as I got older I grew out of it! When I would try it (my sister used to give it to me, and sometimes friends who didn't believe me) I thought even milk chocolate tasted so bitter. It wasn't a serious reaction, nothing anaphylactic, just bathroom stuff and vomiting.

    1.  When I grow up, I want to be a math teacher.  Since I'm currently a bio/chem teacher, this isn't a HUGE surprise, but I really want to teach math.  It kills me these adults I'm teaching can't solve 2x + 7 = 3 without hyperventilating.  Plus, I really like math.  It's so super fun.  And I'm a total nerd.

    2.  I just emailed my old music teacher from middle school.  I started clarinet with him then went on to flute and baritone horn and trumpet and dabbled in keyboard.  Then I switched to French horn in high school.  I still play flute, French horn, and keyboard regularly.  And I used to play clarinet and flute at church.  I kinda wish I still did, because it was super fun.

    3.  My ear canals never leveled out when I went through puberty, so I literally get ear infections anytime I don't dry out my ears after a shower.  Needless to say, I was convinced I was getting an ear infection from diving...but I didn't!  BF has water stuck behind his eardrum though, not cool.

    2. I started talking to people on the internet when I was 13 (in a Sailor Moon chatroom)- one of the people I talked to online flew out from Texas to meet me when I was 20.

    2. I hate eggs.
