100 things about me.

  1. My middle name is Eve.
  2. The only reason I have a middle name is so when I was little, I’d know when my mom was REALLY mad at me. She’d use my whole name.
  3. I’m afraid of heights and the dark.
  4. I’m not afraid of clowns. On the contrary, I like them.
  5. I’ve never broken a bone, had stitches or surgery, or had to stay in the hospital for longer than a checkup.
  6. I’ve never been in a terrible car accident.
  7. I’m on the cusp of Gemini and Taurus but consider myself a Gemini, and I don’t really care about astrology.
  8. I have a horrible sense of time, distance, and direction.
  9. I love to read but I’ve never had a favorite author. I rarely read too many books by the same person, that’s why. I suppose if I had to choose, it’d be R.L. Stine.
  10. I don’t know my blood type. As of 7/11/2012, I found out it’s A-.
  11. I barely watch any television on a regular basis. I hate scheduling my life around a tv show.
  12. My first concert was Culture Club.
  13. I’ve realized I love too many animals to have a favorite, but my three favorites lately are tigers, elephants, and giraffes. I’m hoping I’ll have the chance someday to pet a live tiger.
  14. I’ve never wanted to be famous. I hate the idea of making public appearances.
  15. My favorite Disney princess is Tiana from Princess & the Frog. I didn’t have a favorite until that movie. My favorite villian is Hades from Hercules. Doctor Facilier comes in at a close second, I love Hades because of his sarcasm but Facilier is a genuine villian.
  16. The strangest yet one of the best compliments I’ve ever received was that my nostrils are symmetrical.
  17. I’ve seen Halley’s Comet.
  18. I planted a tree in Israel and I’m 100% positive it was dug up as soon as my tour group left the area.
  19. I don’t snore, but I do talk in my sleep sometimes.
  20. I can whistle, though not always too melodiously.
  21. I have a serious inability to nap. I usually end up sleeping a full eight hours.
  22. My first, middle, and last name are all in the dictionary.
  23. The first CD I ever bought was Marilyn Manson’s Smells Like Children.
  24. I love pancakes but I don’t like waffles.
  25. I absolutely hate going barefoot and don’t enjoy even walking around in socks.
  26. I hold my writing implements too tightly to the point that my hand aches if I write for a long time, and can’t get myself to stop. I figure I probably don’t hold them correctly.
  27. I’m dreading the day I have to actually separate my laundry before washing it, I currently don’t have to at all because I don’t wear anything that bleeds and I don’t own white clothing.
  28. I still have my tonsils. So does my mother. Dad had his removed.
  29. I worry about people who prefer Cool Whip to real whipped cream. It’s okay if you like both, but some people actually prefer Cool Whip and that’s just weird.
  30. I don’t understand people who name their cars as if it’s a child or pet.
  31. I can’t remember a time I was ever genuinely terrified.
  32. I can easily believe a fictional story even if it contains mythical creatures, but I have to triple-check stories I’ve read online thanks to faults and lies of the media.
  33. I still remember making mixtapes. I’ve never made a mixCD.
  34. I own a keyboard and played the viola in school but I can’t read music. I can play by ear which is how I got by at school.
  35. I try almost too hard to be organized but the truth is I just own a lot of stuff. I need to fix that.
  36. I have a tiny overbite. Like, a centimeter.
  37. I naturally have a long stride. I inherited it from my father and I figure it’s also from years of trying to keep up with long-legged friends.
  38. In 4th grade I lost a spelling bee because the word was “stirred” but the woman’s accent made her sound like she was saying “stern.”
  39. I like the smell of gasoline, and the smell of skunk doesn’t bother me.
  40. I’ve never fainted, but I blacked out for a second once as a child when the handball I’d been playing with flew into the sandbox, and instead of picking it up and tossing it to me, a boy kicked it. The ball soared straight at my head and smacked me in the forehead, knocking me down.
  41. In junior high, my school would give detentions for not bringing your book to class. I rarely brought my books because I never received a locker and got fed up with lugging heavy books around if the teachers didn’t specifically say to bring them. I received so many detentions in two years that I was kicked out of the school three months into 8th grade, and I’ve had permanent back pain from those books ever since.
  42. I get a sore back really easily which has been exacerbated lately by being overweight, I’m hoping as I lose weight (I’m working on it) my back will get better.
  43. I took three years of Spanish due to being obligated to take language lessons in school, but can’t remember enough to have a conversation.
  44. I’ve never really known what I wanted to be when I “grew up” but as a young child, for some reason I wanted to be a dentist. My mother assumes I just wanted to play with the tools.
  45. I adore friendly dogs and will unashamedly turn into a giddy babytalking fool around them.
  46. I don’t like cats, but I’ll tolerate them.
  47. I always feel like someone’s looking at me or watching me.
  48. I love working retail, I always meet interesting people.
  49. Working the food industry, on the other hand, made me cynical toward hungry people. Having an empty stomach is no excuse to be an asshole to a total stranger.
  50. I don’t like clear blue skies. I love clouds.
  51. I’m pretty convinced only a few things on this list are actually interesting.
  52. I like to vacuum.
  53. I also enjoy washing dishes by hand, though not if it’s something with a lot of dried food caked on. It takes very little effort to scrape food off a dish before putting it in the sink, yet so many people don’t bother.
  54. I never ran away from home as a kid.
  55. I have no idea if I had chicken pox as a kid. I think I had a single one on my leg in 2nd grade.
  56. My best friend in high school forced me to go to our senior prom, because she was being forced by her mother and didn’t want to go alone. Neither of us had a date, we went with a group of friends and had a blast. The prom itself was ridiculous, but we had fun because we were all together.
  57. I think fake fur and faux animal print are tacky.
  58. I figure one reason why I’m a fussy eater is because I really haven’t tried very many dishes, there’s just a whole lot of individual foods I don’t like.
  59. I’m not competitive and I’m a sore loser. I really try not to let it show, but…
  60. My face is an open book.
  61. I don’t want children but I have a name picked out for a daughter. It just sorta happened. I’m pretty sure I’ll use it to name a dog someday. I probably just offended someone by saying that.
  62. I love emeralds and garnet.
  63. I once chewed a chunk out of a long-sleeved shirt out of boredom.
  64. My favorite movie is Cemetery Man.
  65. The worst movies I’ve seen (so far) were The Human Centipede and Irreversible.
  66. Despite my love of travel, I’ve only travelled outside the states once.
  67. I hate living in a huge city, but I love the cityscape at night.
  68. I have asthma but rarely use an inhaler.
  69. I never put items in my left back pocket. This is probably because I’m right-handed, so it just doesn’t occur to me.
  70. I’m very protective of close family and friends.
  71. I’ve never learned how to properly swim, but I love being in water.
  72. I learn about what’s going on in the world through Twitter and Facebook.
  73. I’ve been in love once and he’s still one of my best friends.
  74. I miss when cartoons on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network were actually good.
  75. I’ve never had an overdue book in a city library, but a few years ago I received a letter from my high school saying I never returned a book. The fine was over $100. I completely ignored it because I knew I’d returned the book, and there was no way I was going to give them that much money instead of just replacing the book.
  76. I’m currently growing one wisdom tooth. I’m pretty sure the rest are impacted, but they aren’t hurting so hopefully I won’t need them removed.
  77. I’m a really heavy sleeper. When the ’94 Northridge earthquake happened, I had a brick fireplace in my bedroom that imploded. Bricks flew all over my room and came inches from hitting my sleeping face, but I slept through the whole thing. I didn’t wake up till I heard my mother hollering for me from down the hall, I thought she was trying to wake me for school so I ignored her for a minute until I realized she was frantic. Then I opened my eyes and saw my room was a disaster and wondered what just happened.
  78. If an animal dies in a movie, it usually ruins the movie for me. I tried watching I am Legend with a friend and made him turn off the movie after the scene where the dog dies. He was making fun of me because tears were streaming down my face, but I didn’t care.
  79. I used to think my voice was too high-pitched and childlike, now I don’t mind it.
  80. I was born and raised and still living in Los Angeles, but people argue about it with me because they don’t believe I was born here.
  81. The only reason it’s difficult for me to write this list is because I’m trying to think of things I haven’t mentioned a lot already, either in other blog entries or my YouTube videos.
  82. I used to read the Sunday funnies (comics in the newspaper) all the time as a kid, though I never understood the serious ones like Doonesbury. I stopped reading them when they started to suck, it’s like every comic artist started hating their life at the same time.
  83. As well as I’ve been doing with keeping my new blog updated, there’s been a handful of ideas I gave up on because I’d start typing and lose my steam halfway through, then delete the whole entry.
  84. I can’t remember having a crush on any “embarrassing” celebrities as a kid.
  85. I didn’t do so great in school. The problem was I’d do the work but not turn it in, and I liked being the class clown. I didn’t exactly get in trouble, but I was rarely the teacher’s favorite, especially in Math. I’m convinced all my math teachers only passed me so they wouldn’t be stuck with me another year.
  86. However, I surprised even myself by getting a B+ in Honors Chemistry. Art, English, and Science were always my best subjects.
  87. I was bitten by a dog once, but it was my own fault since I’d been teasing it. I don’t know why I was but I knew being bitten was a fair comeuppance.
  88. The most boring books I’ve ever read were all for school, especially in high school.
  89. I have a goal to stay off Twitter for a week, but not Facebook. This is because I keep in touch with family on Facebook and I wouldn’t want to miss important news.
  90. My father first taught me how to use computers. Now I teach him how to use the internet. I’m still working on trying to get him to switch email programs.
  91. I like both Pepsi and Coke.
  92. I still vividly remember my teenage angst and how even then I knew it was pointless because my life was pretty good.
  93. I hate taking baths, I much prefer showers. This is thanks to my short stature. Bathtubs are never comfortable to me.
  94. I love to dream but I wish sleeping was optional. I always become productive right before I should be getting ready for bed, and am usually up way too late because of it.
  95. I love candles and candleholders, but try very hard not to constantly buy more considering I already have a ton.
  96. I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was 18. I was never allowed to dye it before, so as soon as I turned 18, I bought hairdye and attempted to dye my own hair. For some reason, I didn’t think to use the whole box, so there was a patch and a few streaks of dye in my hair. Mom took one look at me and said “Show me which dye you got, we’ll get more and I’ll help you.” I switched from red to black dye in September 2009 because the red dye I bought is no longer being made, and my best friend suggested black.
  97. I’ve never dreamt about my own death or the death of someone I care about, though I’ve had dreams where deceased loved ones showed up. I always consider these as someone checking up on me or letting me know they’re okay.
  98. My “guilty pleasure” tv shows are My Fair Wedding and Mad Fashion. I don’t watch every episode, but I love watching both.
  99. I bawl every time I listen to A Boy And His Frog and Cat’s In The Cradle.
  100. I hate asking for help or admitting that I don’t know how to do something.
