And the hits keep coming...


Ok, so continuing on in the theme I stole from another blog, here we go:

6. What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?~oh gee, probably dealing with depression, having to crawl back out of the darkest pit you can imagine that is also of your own creation, pretty awful
7. What is your dream job, and why?~I have my dream job finally.  Working as a nurse in labor and delivery, despite the sometimes hard cases, is both rewarding and pays well!
8. What are 5 passions you have?~books, music, food, friends & family, and movies
9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

  1. My sister~she helped raised me (or mostly raised me) and taught me to never let others hold me back, never let them get you down, and most of all that sisters are always there for each other.
  2. Kerry-she constantly reminds me to see the good in others, to have fun, and to smile & laugh
  3. Kendra-no matter how we may err as youngsters, we can always succeed as adults!
  4. Tiff-taught me what having a best friend for 23 years means, how to find a new hobby no matter what age
  5. my mom-for teaching me that (despite her own follies in life) you don't need a man to be a parent
  6. Mr. Langston-for reminding me to run with my head up looking ahead of me, that i should be proud and not stare at the ground
  7. Mrs. Kusche-for showing me kindness and that teachers really do go above and beyond for their students
  8. Madame-for teaching me great French speaking skills, for believing in me, and for trusting me with so much
  9. Sarah-for being an awesome parent and someone i can turn to no matter what is going on in my life she will be there
  10. Frances-for always looking up to me and making me feel like something worth admiring

10. Describe your most embarrassing moment.~how do you limit it down to just one thing when it comes to me, really now?!?  I guess I'd have to say the cut to my eye from being falling down drunk this Halloween
11. Describe 10 pet peeves you have.~people tapping pens/pencils/whatever, repetitive noises, using incorrect words (like orientated), people spelling stuff wrong, bad drivers, bad singers, interrupters, republicans, homophobic jerks, and well bad people in general
12. Describe a typical day in your current life.~um, sleep as much as possible, go to work, possibly cook something, definitely reading, and on days off movie watching

First 5-Getting to know me?!?


Ok, so I decided to try to tackle the top five on the randomness list.  Turns out the first one is really 20 separate answers, so I guess its more like I'll be doing 25 things here.  Oh wait, and now as I see the list below the third one also says 10 things...so let's go ahead and make this number 35.  Holy crap!  

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.


  1. avid reader
  2. singer
  3. soccer girl
  4. amateur esthetician
  5. haven't had natural hair color since at least 12
  6. would dye my hair pink if work would allow
  7. like to watch TV-way more than i should
  8. favorite video game-zelda series
  9. favorite color is pink
  10. last book series i read-beautiful creatures (awesome)
  11. favorite movies-harry potter
  12. love gift giving-hate gift shopping & figuring out what to get people
  13. wish i were more positive
  14. miss being more active-need to change that
  15. i like to camp-in trailers, with beds, and a stove...
  16. i hope i have girls
  17. but only if they are sporty and not too fru fru
  18. my favorite holiday is halloween
  19. i like glitter covered nails
  20. my all time favorite car is blue 65 mustang

2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
  • Being strangled-as a child two things I think added to this fear.  1)my mom and sis loved to tickle my throat, to the point of holding me down and tickling the crap out of me.  2)also as a child there was a time when I got caught by the throat in a rope that I was playing/swinging on and it did strangle me-rope burn and everything. 
  • Break Ins-ok this one is also twofold.  1)we actually had someone trying to break in, WHILE kerry was home and 2)one of my worst night terrors ever was about someone breaking in, coming all the way upstairs, stealing our stuff from the bedroom and me trying to stay still the whole time~not awesome in any way.
  • Spiders-ok I know this one is a little pat to be sure, but it's true, spiders creep me the hell out.  They totally jump at your when you least expect it and they are all shelob from lord of the rings.
3. Describe your relationship with your parents.~let's see, no relationship with my so called sperm donor.  My relationship is ok with my mom, we talk and she's supportive, so I guess it's just fine.  As good as any of your relationships with your parents..don't judge!

4. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could. ~oh holy shit, i can't believe this one, ok here goes


  1. You're not going to marry Jeremy Stockdale
  2. You're a great driver, still are
  3. Work harder in school, college is hard
  4. you're not going to work in psychology but you will meet a lot of psychos
  5. trust your instincts when you like someone, you know yourself best
  6. focus on the people who matter most, the ones you'll still know in 18 years!
  7. you should stick with the soccer team tryout thing
  8. you should sign up for the AP classes
  9. madame will still be your favorite teacher when you're 34 and watching her struggle with her husband dying
  10. contrary to family history, you will not be knocked up before high school, or even in your 20's, so far the 30's aren't looking much better either...

  1. my wife
  2. my nieces and nephews (both real and adopted)
  3. soccer

Hormones you say?!?

Yeah, turns out, I don't make them very well.  Found out this week, just before insemination attempt #4, that I have super low estrogen.  Like, lower than post-menopausal levels.  Guess what that means...kind of hard to support a pregnancy when you're not making the right type of hormones.  Oh and guess what else low estrogen causes: insomnia, depression, weight gain, mood swings, and night sweats.  GEE, no one who knows me would think I have any of those, right?  Oh well, on to more pills to supplement the hormones I'm not making.  Hopefully this will help with those symptoms noted above as well as getting us pregnant.  Fingers crossed....

My Signature Move~Pink
I've got a way, of making everything a confrontation
And you've got a way, of bringing out the worst in me
You see, it's just if I'm bored
I'll find a way to make an accusation
I've got a problem with more
So gimme, gimme everything

Chorus

Stop.
Not my fault, Not at all
I can't help you what you want?
Get in line, take a number
Get you when my song is over
If you leave it up to me I'll make a lie the truth, it's true
And then I'll break it off, make it bleed
tell you that it's you not me
Make a scene at a show, just because the wind blows
Shoot myself in the foot to make a point I can't prove, to get back to you
That's just my signature move

You call me cra- (cray)
-zie and I think it's me and I just don't like it.
I'm just a sensitive babe
And you need to please me right
You know I said I would change
I did I went and tried a different outfit
And if that's not enough
You won't be riding dirty tonight

Repeat Chorus

That's just my signature move (x3)

I start fights in my dreams
A kick-a-kick off the sheets
I Don't Apologise
You wouldn't see it in my eyes
I'm not a good best friend
If there's a rule I will bend
I'll makes it trouble for you
It's all I know how to do
I'm not responsi..
