Cool facts! I know where Stanford is...I grew up in the East Bay. I got my first migraine at 22 and I thought I was going to die too. Sometimes I still think that when I get them. My husband had a green card. I've never consistently kept a journal. I blog instead!

Tonya said...

I love these kinds of posts. It's really fun to read all these things about you.

P.S. It's hard to write a post all about you without using "I" multiple times :o)

Yvonne said...

Love this--it's always so fun to learn more about blogging friends.

What a great experience that must have been with the Maxwell's. Isn't it amazing that you took all that French and yet went to Brazil.

The guy in Judging Amy is named Richard Jones--he has a small part in the movie Vantage Point.

I'm pretty sure I couldn't come up with 100 facts all about myself... let me include great things about my kids and family, then I could go on forever. Anyway, I had fun reading yours. My migraines started at age 14, I thought I was going blind because of the aura, then the headache... wow. The advisors at BYU told me the same thing about the nursing program. I did community health, now I am working as a medical assistant (doing all the same things as the nurse without the same pay, ugh.) someday I too want to go back to school to get the degree I wanted in the first place.

you want a story? remind me to tell you about the time i hitchhiked on a tour bus for a neo-nazi skinhead heavey-metal band in slovakia! some guy was trying to feed me sardines straight out of a can.

Heidi said...

Oh, my. I too cried when I was asked to the senior prom. And then I told him no.

And then one of my friends asked me to go with him, and then we ended up doubling with the guy who I had turned down. Which was pretty awkward. The End.

Erika said...

I finally finished reading your 100 facts ...it was lot of fun to know things about you I never even thought about

hjackson said...

I LOVED this blog - I could totally relate to some of what you wrote (I copied and pasted some below)... Oh, and I didn't get asked to ANY school dances... So I feel your pain. Dating in HS in Hawaii was a huge joke. When my younger siblings went to HS in Utah I couldn't believe the difference. You could actually go out with a guy and not be his girlfriend??? HOLY COW!!!

So these are some that I TOTALLY relate to:

36. I don't like my nose.

37. I am totally afraid of large crowds.

38. I get overly anxious when going some where I have never been before.

75. I have a terrible memory. I can't recall much from the past.

76. I do however have a great recall if I have written it down :)

85. I cry really easy, and hate it.

100. I used to write daily in my journal leaving me a book shelf full of journals. Since I have been married I have finished one...I used to finish one every couple of months.
