Random facts

So far, I have successfully avoided hitting the "like" button on all of those random facts posts on Facebook.  That's not to say I don't like those posts, but I didn't want to join in the fun.

Interestingly enough, in a team meeting the other day, we had to share five things about us, so I'll list those same five facts here and then add a few more.

::: I have been to 186 concerts. The first one was Michael Peterson (country artist) when I was 17.

::: I met my best friend when we were in third grade.  Some people meet us and wonder how we're friends because we're very different, but I think we balance each other.

::: One of my life goals is to visit every MLB park. I've been to 10 so far. That's about a third of them. Need to get to work.

::: I've never traveled outside the U.S.  I want to ... it's just never been a possibility.

::: I have one brother and two half-sisters.  My brother is younger and my half-sisters are older.

::: In restaurants/public places, I hate sitting with my back to the door. I really don't know why.  It's just a thing.

::: I use two alarms in the morning -- a clock and my phone.  And sometimes I still don't hear either one for a long time.  I'm a sound sleeper.

::: Writing has always been one of my favorite things.  My mom says I used to tell her stories before I could actually write them out.  It's a great form of release for me.

:::  I taught myself to read when I was 3 years old.  Much to the dismay of my kindergarten teacher.  She was not happy that I was ahead of the other kids, so she wouldn't call on me in class to answer reading/letter questions.

::: I like cake better than frosting.  

::: I have never liked/been able to nap (unless I'm sick or seriously sleep-deprived).  They sound like a good idea, but sleeping during the day has just never happened for me.  I suppose I'm afraid I'll miss out on something.

What do you think?


  1. I taught myself how to read too! To this day, no one knows how I actually did it. AND I don't like naps either!

  2. I never nap if I can help it. It just makes me feel worse if I'm already groggy.

  3. 186 concerts? I think I've been to like 3. Maybe 4. And aw, what a mean kindergarten teacher!
