10 Things

I was tagged by the sweet Rebecca from Rebecca's Random Ramblings to write 10 things about myself. Sounds easy enough, right? I actually had a hard time pinpointing things about myself you may not already know. I tend to talk about the same stuff a lot!

(Rules: Included the name of the name of the blog that tagged you, write 10 things about yourself, and tag however many friends you want......and don't forget.....have FUN! :)

10 Things About Me:

1. I hate cooking for work parties. Seriously. I like cooking at home okay, but I can't stand cooking for people besides my family. I'm so afraid they will be judging me. I feel like I'm on Chopped or something. 

2. I am very sensitive when it comes to elderly people. I don't know why, but sometimes when I see an elderly person, I just want to cry. Is that weird? Um, yes, probably. 

3. I am scared of water. I used to want to be a marine biologist, so that's a bit ironic. When I go to the beach or something, it's just overwhelming. I have this fear of getting swept up in the sea and never coming back. 

4. I am very easily embarrassed. It doesn't take much to embarrass me. And it makes it 50,000 times worse when someone says "You are so red right now!" 

5. I have read 41 books this year. My goal is to read 45 and I'm almost there! A little over a month left, I can totally do it.

6. I almost majored in Graphic Design or Social Work in college. Not sure why I thought social work would be a good idea for me. Two words I and work. Haha.

7. I can not eat meat on the bone. I already kind of struggle with eating meat sometimes. I can go several days without any at all. But what meat I do eat must be boneless. Bleh.

8. My middle name is Leigh. I am named after my mom's mom, whose middle name was Lee. 

9. Unlike most homeschoolers, I play no instrument. I never had the willpower to learn one. I wanted and got a bass guitar for Christmas one year, but I sold it a few years later. I am the only member of my family that can't play an instrument.

10. You won't see me Black Friday shopping.

I have NEVER understood the concept of this. The sales are not that good, why would I want to fight people for stuff? Plus stores are even opening on Thanksgiving this year which I think is ridiculous. Let's just ignore the one holiday dedicated to spending time with family and spend it in line at the store instead. I do know a lot of people that love shopping on Black Friday, but it's just not for me.  No offense to anyone who does enjoy it.

I'm not going to tag anyone specifically...all of you should do this. I want to know all of you better!

I don't like meat on the bone either nor do I Black Friday shop!

I'm not a Black Friday shopper either. It just sounds like insanity to me! The only time I will run to a store on Black Friday is to check Walmart in the afternoon when visiting my parents... the only big store in town is Walmart so all the real serious people leave town. Sometimes there are plenty of great deals left at 2pm and no crowds because they've all gone home by then!

I agree about elderly people...especially those that look lonely and lost. It is sad.

I hate Black Friday. It's unfair to the people who work in th stores. It's unfair to make customers feel as if they have one day to get some material item that they shouldn't even need in order to show that they care about someone.
