Happy birthday to me!
In honor of my 27th birthday, here are 27 fun facts about me.
1. I am addicted to sugar cubes.
any type of regular, white sugar but the cubes are fun to eat.
2. I’m a serial pen thief.
I won’t ever steal anything else, ever. But if I find a black ink (work regulations) pen & I like the way it writes I can guarantee you I’ll keep it. And I don’t like people using my pens.
3. I am obsessed with Ancient Egypt.
I love it so much that I named my oldest son Ramses, my little pharaoh.
4. I lost a child.
April 18, 2008 I had a miscarriage.
5. I convinced my youngest brother that he was adopted.
It lasted a good year and the entire family was in on it.
6. I hit my sister with my car 2x.
First time was an accident, second time I was mad at her.
7. I hate the color purple.
Hate. Loathe. Abhor. Whatever you want to call it, I think it’s the ugliest color.
8. I can’t swim.
I can swim from point A to point
B A 1/2. If you were to throw me into the deep end of a pool, I’ll drown. It’s embarrassing, and how the heck am I ever going to learn to surf?!.
9. Coffee puts me to sleep.
Since I was in Kindergarten, I didn’t have cereal for breakfast, nope. I would sit with my grandparents at the table and have my cafe y pan dulce. Coffee to me is what wine is to many other ladies at the end of a long day. And I like my coffee regular; plain with just a spoonful of white sugar and some raw honey. None of that froofy latte, mocha, ccino stuff.
10. My first concert was The Goo Goo Dolls.
My aunt took me and my cousin for my birthday when I was 12. It was an awesome night up until some jerk elbowed me in the stomach. But it was fun, anyways.
11. I’m afraid of Ferris Wheels.
I can handle roller coasters but why on earth would they place you that high up with no seat belts? And they rock back and forth, no way.
12. I can’t sleep if the closet door is open.
It’s creepy, you never know what might be watching you.
13. I almost didn’t graduate from high school.
I simply didn’t care for high school so I never showed up. One of my classes was an ROP class so we’d receive credits for hours worked. Filled those up in a month!
14. Tuesday is my lucky day.
I was born on a Tuesday, married on a Tuesday, and both my boys were born on Tuesdays. No, none of that was planned.
15. I have tattoos.
Most people already know that, but I have 12. And more to come.
16. And piercings.
Tongue, bellybutton, and a monroe. I had my nose pierced 3x but removed it when I got the monroe. I also had 3 dermals on my left wrist.
17. Kitkats are my favorite chocolates.
Give me one and you’ll be my best friend.
18. I know how to milk a goat.
I even taught Alex how to do it.
19. I’ve never been inside of a nightclub.
And I never will. You can find me at the opera instead or the ballet.
20. I’m afraid of butterflies.
They’re gross and creepy.
21. I hate tres leches cake.
Someone once [jokingly] told me when I was little that it was made with milk from anteayer, ayer, y hoy (the day before yesterday, yesterday, and today) and I never again wanted it.
22. I have a major fear of public speaking.
I can’t do it, won’t do it. I instantly panic, my heart starts pounding, sweaty, red, I mumble, and all around freak out. I absolutely hate having attention placed towards me and being put on the spot. Noooooo.
23. I only eat Fuji apples.
No other apple is as good and juicy. They are just amazing.
24. My Golden family is astrogically compatible.
Ramses and I are scorpio, Romeo and Alex are Cancer.
25. I have a dent in my skull.
When I was around 8, I fell off of my aunt’s bed and landed on my head against an edge of a wall. I hit so hard it actually left a dent. I remember getting dizzy, the room spinning, my eye sight coming and going. I never told anyone because if I’d told my mom I was jumping on the bed I’d have gotten hit with a belt haha.
26. I skipped Kindergarten.
I already knew how to read and write and do math. I always finished my work early and when they started giving me 1st grade work packets, I was finishing both before the other kindergarteners would finish their own. So after a few months they moved me up to the first grade.
27. I’m somewhat of a recovering Catholic.
I found my church home with First Congregational Church (of Ramona) in October 2013 and it was the best thing to ever happen to me. I’ll always keep certain Catholic traditions as that’s how I was raised and out of respect for my family but I have changed the way I pray & worship and the way I pray & worship has changed me.
