22 things about me

It's day 2 of my "22" mini-series, and today I want to share some things about myself that you (hopefully) don't already know.
Personally, I love posts like this from bloggers I follow; like I said yesterday, it helps me to feel like I have a personal relationship with the person running the blog. So without further ado, I give you 22 things about me...

1. I'm an ISTJ personality type. Introvert, sensing, thinking, judging.

2. I've been to 14 different states, which I think is pretty impressive. But obviously I want to see them all.

3. I'm a red wine kind of girl.

4. I like to collect, and I'm very particular about continuing to my collections. For example, I started collecting shot glasses when I was in Germany last summer, so now I feel a need to stick to it and never deviate. Similarly, I got a Pandora bracelet back in August, and after going on the Pandora website, I feel like I can never rest until I have all of the beads and charms on my wish list.

5. My absolute favorite holiday is the 4th of July. It's during my favorite season. There is nothing better than America. And I've celebrated in many places, including another country (which was odd to me. No fireworks, what?).

6. Soccer is my first love when it comes to sports, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

7. Grocery shopping is my least favorite household chore.

8. I don't mind driving in silence. When I lose my local stations when driving long distances, I am perfectly content turning off the music all together. I'll also go weeks, when I'm in town, driving without the radio on.

9. I am a very light sleeper. I have to sleep with a pillow on my head when the birds start chirping in the early morning.

10. I have incredibly irrational fears. Examples: having my eyes gauged out by a bird, being swallowed by a giant sea animal such as a whale, and getting lost in space. When Bryan took me to see the movie "Gravity" this weekend, I had severe anxiety the whole time. I loved the movie, but it still stressed me out to the max.

11. I love milk.

12. I swear my childhood home was haunted. My mom and I will both tell you freaky things that happened to us while we lived there.

13. I have dreams about tornadoes all the time.

14. I still make my mom wake up in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve to put the presents under the tree because I like being surprised in the morning. Thanks for doing that, Mom.

15. I'm a big fan of raw oysters.

16. I am super competitive. Very rarely am I okay with being second-best at anything.

17. I used to be really weird when I was little. Examples: I had about a million plastic horses that I would lead on trail rides around the house, and I used to write down the birthdays of my probably 100 beanie babies in a calendar every year.

18. I've thrown my back out three times.

19. I prefer instant mashed potatoes from the box over real mashed potatoes.

20. I loathe video games and question people who play them all the time.

21. I cried over Neopets. I made like 12,000 accounts so I could adopt all the pets in the pound and got so upset when I didn't think I could take care of them all. My mom had to calm me down.

22. As far as clothing is concerned, the only thing I've ever ordered online was my Nike shoes that I got a couple weeks ago. Other than that, I've only ever shopped in the store. I'm paranoid about buying something and it not fitting.

For the record, it took me just shy of three hours to put this post together. Enjoy!
