30 Things about Hope.

Here are 30 things about me, written for the meme at .! May As Well Event is the host of this little listy project. OK, here it goes.

  1. I love making lists! If you read my blog you probably already know that, but making lists is definitely a thing I do regularly, and I enjoy doing it.
  2. I enjoy filling out those online surveys, no, not the surveys that ask you about car ensurance etc, but the ones that ask questions like “what’s your favorite food?”
  3. I can’t stand my legal name, so I use a pseudonym online.
  4. I’m a devout Christian and try to get to church whenever I can.
  5. I love to sing! I also know I’m not very good at it.
  6. I’m not one of those people that’s on my phone all the time. In fact, I rarely use my smartphone for anything but calling, texting, and the ocasional music player.
  7. I’ll turn 35 on August 25th.
  8. I’m an epic procrastinator!
  9. I’m also a perpetual motion machine, I’m pretty much always moving, even when seated.
  10. I hate celebrating my birthday with my immediate family, because it usually involves way too much drama!
  11. Up until I was around 6 or so, I hated ice cream.
  12. I’ve been blogging since 2003, it will be 15 years in July.
  13. That being said, I’m a crappy excuse for a web developer.
  14. I get headaches often, no… we can’t figure out why.
  15. I took ballet lessons for 3 years, up until I was in 9th grade.
  16. I find doing yoga to be a good form of exercise, but I don’t ascribe to the new-age spiritual rituals that are often used.
  17. I enjoy following a good legal case every now and then. Sometimes they’re tech and/or privacy related, and other times they’re criminal trials.
  18. I first became interested in legal cases by following the OJ Simpson trial. This was partly thanks to my teacher requiring us to watch CNN in our classroom.
  19. When I was younger, I used to enjoy classical music. I now consider country and Christian to be my favorites.
  20. I enjoy dancing in church! During worship… that is.
  21. Baking is one of my favorite things, that being said if I do too much, I’ll eat way, way too much!
  22. I like to make my own birthday cakes, because no one seems to share my taste in cake.
  23. I enjoy both coffee and tea, but usually find myself drinking water or PowerAid in the morning.
  24. I consider myself a morning person, I like to get up early.
  25. That being said I tend to have nights where I stay up, being distracted by the internet. I call this “internet distraction syndrome.”
  26. I’ve pretty much eliminated TV from my life, except for a couple shows that I stream online.
  27. However, I’m a major fan of the Olympics!
  28. 404 is my favorite number. If you know why this is, you’ve probably found this page.
  29. I can’t stand mustard and mayonnaise on sandwiches.
  30. However, when it comes to McDonalds cheeseburgers, I’ll eat the mustard and catchup they put on.

OK, now you know a bit about me. I’ll probably make this a page at some point, considering I need to make an about page on here.
