So as I was catching up on blogs last week, I came across this post from Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand and not only was it fun to read, but I thought it would give me a chance to reflect on all that I’ve accomplished (or have yet to accomplish).
Shot a gun? No.
Gone on a blind date? Yes. When I was in high school, one of my friends set me up with another friend of hers. I didn’t really like him (although he did drive a VW Minibus which was AWESOME). Weirdly enough, I’m pretty sure that the two of them eventually started dating.
Skipped school? Nope. Too much of a goody-goody.
Watched someone die? No. I’ve seen someone immediately after he died, but I think it would be just too painful to watch the actual process.
Watched a baby’s birth? Nope, only on TLC’s A Baby Story 😉
Visited Canada? Yep!! 1/4 Canadian right here!
Visited Hawaii? Yes! One of the greatest vacations ever!
Visited Cuba? No, but really, I’m not interested.
Visited Europe? Yep! I’ve been to England, Ireland and Scotland!
Visited South America? Not yet, but I will make it to Peru to see the alpacas someday…
Visited Las Vegas? No, but I’m dying to go!
Visited Central America? No
Visited Asia? No
Visited Africa? No, but hopefully someday!
Visited Florida? Yep! I mean, I went to college there, and I’m going back in just a few weeks!
Visited Mexico? Yes, my whole family went when I was in high school. Snorkeling there was so beautiful, but unfortunately we all got sick 🙁
Seen the Grand Canyon in person? No
Flown in a helicopter? No
Served on a jury? No
Been lost? Yep. I mean, I get lost while driving all the time, but I once got lost in the grocery store when I was a little kid, too (I wrote about it here).
Traveled to the opposite side of the country? Yes, but it was oh so brief. On my way to Hawaii, I had to change planes in California.
Visited Washington, DC? I used to teach in DC, and I also visit frequently because my happy place (the National Zoo) is there!
Swam in the ocean? Yep!
Cried yourself to sleep? On more than one occasion 🙁
Played cops and robbers? I don’t think so…but I’m sure if I did, then I would have insisted on being the cop.
Played cowboys and Indians? Again, I don’t think so.
Recently colored with crayons? Probably 😉
Sang karaoke? Yasssssss!
Sang a duet or solo in church? No
Paid for a meal with coins only? Oh I’m sure that I have!
Made a prank phone call? My friend and I tried to prank call the Weather Service one time. It doesn’t work too well when you’re trying to prank a recording 😛
Laughed until a beverage came out of your nose? Oh yes…
Caught a snowflake on your tongue? Yes!
Had children? Not yet but hopefully soon!
Had a pet? I mean, if you read this blog, you KNOW that I own the two cutest pups ever!
Been skinny dipping? Goodness no
Been fishing? Yes
Been boating? Yes! My parents live on the Chesapeake Bay!
Been downhill skiing? No, and I don’t think that I ever will, since I don’t like the cold or heights.
Been water skiing? I’ve attempted it. We’ll leave it at that.
Been camping in a trailer/RV? We used to do it all the time when I was a teenager!
Been camping in a tent? Yep!
Driven a motorcycle? No…it terrifies me
Been bungee-jumping? Remember what I said about heights?
Gone to a drive-in movie? Yes! One of the oldest ones in the country is in Maryland!
Done something that could have killed you? An ex-boyfriend convinced me that it would make more sense to walk across the top of a dam instead of going around it. I hate myself for doing that because it was so so so stupid.
Done something you will regret for the rest of your life? See above.
Rode an elephant? I would forgo my fear of heights for this one!
Rode a camel? No…but I’m also not very interested
Eaten just cookies or cake or ice cream for dinner? Oh yes!
Been on TV? Yes! I was interviewed as a teenager about the newest school fashion trends. It was hilarious because I was the least trendy person EVERRRRR
Stolen any traffic signs? No
Been in a car accident? Yes, a few
Been in the hospital in the past 24 months? No (knock on wood)
Donated blood? Remember how I’m scared of heights? I’m even more scared of needles.
Gotten a speeding ticket in the last 12 months? Sigh. Yes.
Gotten a piercing? My ears are pierced. Actually, they were pierced when I was a baby, but those holes got too high, and every time I’ve tried to pierce them since, they’ve closed up 🙁
Gotten a tattoo? No…ya know, the needles.
Driven a manual transmission vehicle? No, but Boyfriend is supposed to teach me how to do it!
Ever owned your dream car? Not yet 🙁
Been married? No, but hopefully soon!
Been divorced? No!
Fell in love? YESSSSSS
Fell out of love? Also yes
Paid for a stranger’s meal? Does coffee count? Because then yes
Driven over 100mph? I’m pretty sure that I have
Been scuba diving or snorkeling in Mexico and Australia? Snorkeling in Mexico!
Written a published book/story/poetry? Does an article count? If so, then yes!
Eaten snails? Nooooooo
Share some of your fun facts with me!
