Mindy at Just a One Girl Revolution tagged me in one of these blog equivalents of a chain letter, and I don’t want seven years of bad luck, so…
- Post these rules
- You must post 11 random things about yourself.
- Answer the questions set for you in their post.
- Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
- Go to their blog and tell them that youâ€™ve tagged them.
- No stuff in the tagging section about â€œyou are tagged if you are reading thisâ€. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.
[one] I started reading when I was three years old. I credit my parents and always surrounding me with books.
[two] Related to one, I skipped ahead a grade in reading (and I think math? I can’t remember now) classes for a few years in elementary school until the girl who was skipping with me couldn’t handle it any more.
[three] Iâ€™m obsessed with Julian Casablancas. I wouldn’t ordinarily consider being a home-wrecker…except for him. He’s so not my type, but good lord is he sexy.
[four] I had a TV in my room growing up, but I’m really and honestly completely indifferent about TV. I usually have it on in the background when I get home for noise, but most of the time I couldn’t tell you what I was watching since I pay so little attention. I recently canceled cable because of this and it hasn’t changed my life in the least.
[five] I’ve never dated anyone more than four or five months.
[six] I really wanted to be Cher from Clueless when I was in middle school and had my mom buy me lots of suit-type outfits like hers.
[seven] I’m terrified of flying. Like, Xanax-popping, sign-of-cross-making terrified. Even for short flights.
[eight] I thought I was allergic to all nuts and peanuts until getting some allergy testing done a year or so ago. I’m still allergic to peanuts but I can eat all nuts. This really hasn’t changed my life that much, other than the occasional Larabar.
[nine] If there were no calories in French fries, I would eat them every. single. day. Alas…
[ten] My parents live in the same town as the Real Housewives of NJ. (And in the same neighborhood as Jaclyn and Kim G.) My college roomie is from the neighborhood where the Real Housewives of OC are from, and I made fun of her…until they started filming in my parents’ ‘hood.
[eleven] I took a semester off from college to do a full-time internship, but I took classes over the summer the next summer so that I’d still graduate on time.
