Just Because...

I did this on my facebook, so I thought I would trow it up here too. It is just 25 random things about me.

After all that thought, it shouldn't go to waste!

1. My middle name is Rae, which I used to hate when I was little, (mostly because of the rise in fame of Billy Ray Cyrus) but now I love and will pass on to a daughter if I ever have one.

2. I traveled for my national sorority and since being in grad school have not been able to be involved with my national organization. I miss it every day.

3. One of my biggest pet peeves in life is when people cannot format outlines correctly, especially in Word or some other computer program that makes it for you.

4. My favorite punctuation mark, yes I have one, is the semi-colon. I use it at least once in every paper I write. I also believe that commas can be used as a form of artistic expression in writing, per my professors in college. Sometimes my graduate school professors disagree.

5. I secretly want to disregard all of my education and be a stay at home wife who gets to snuggle with her dog and a good book every day…for at least a few years.

6. I love cooking and think I am pretty darn good at it.

7. I would still consider going to law school at some point in my life.

8. My best friend Corey and I have thought about starting no less than 50 businesses in the duration of our friendship.

9. I really love dirty martinis, with extra olives.

10. I own an electric typewriter and do any creative writing on it. The rhythm of the keys keeps me in a groove.

11. As much as I love weddings, I secretly enjoy helping others plan theirs more than planning my own. It is super fun to play with other people’s money.

12. I want four kids. You may think that is crazy. I do not.

13. I have issues with quitting. Even at a minute level. If I start watching a horrible movie on TV, or even start reading a book I don’t like very much, I will still finish watching or reading.

14. I love cupcakes. A lot. In my opinion, they are the best dessert.

15. I watch at least three channels of TV at the same time. It drives Austin insane.

16. I dream of writing the next great American novel…on a typewriter.

17. I want to live abroad before I have children for selfish reasons, and after I have children so that I can raise them to be global citizens.

18. I will spend down to the last dime I have on an awesome pair of shoes…but now that I am also responsible for the spending of someone else’s money I sometimes feel bad about it.

19. Even though Austin is going into one of the safest places in the military, I worry about his safety almost every day.

20. When I go to visit my parents, I feel more relaxed and secure than any other place in the world, even though I never lived there.

21. I do not have a passport.

22. I am one of the biggest procrastinators I know – other top ranking putter-offers include my father, sister and brother. My mom hates it.

23. I have been pretty lackadaisical about actually booking a church to get married in. I have a dress, bridesmaids, reception venue, d├ęcor, etc. but no church…yet.

24. People on Bluetooths or on speaker phone in public annoy me.

25. I have only taken a handful of legitimate vacations in my life, (maybe two, maybe) a ratio which I will begin improving as soon as I have the means to do so.
