eight things about moi

A couple people have tagged me. One requested that I write six things about myself. The other wanted seven. So I did eight.

01. I rarely if ever eat breakfast. Not even a glass of OJ. Nada.
02. I admit that one of my dresses is actually a nightie.
03. Lately I really want to try my hand at writing a screenplay. We'll see about that.
04. I sometimes wish I had listened to my mom and majored in graphic design, instead. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. In fact, I don't know what I want to be right now.
05. I often wonder how seriously to take this blogging thing.
06. I love to be in the company of others: friends, family, acquaintances. People fascinate me.
07. I cry way too easily as of late. It can be the lyrics of a song, the end of Juno, someone saying something kind to someone else. I like it when something rings both nice and true.
08. I stay up way later than anyone I know. Except C.

Now I'm tagging Alyson of Unruly Things, Robin of Red Robin Land, Nicole of A Little Sussy, Chelsea of Frolic, Caroline of Armelle and Catherine of Little Glowing Lights. But there's no pressure, friends. Only if you're up for it. Though I kind of hope you are.

I swear the older I get the easier it is to make me cry. I use to never cry in movies and now I do all the time.

sometimes I wish I'd majored in something other than graphic design. ask me what, and I'll tell you I have no clue.

and I'll get to this tag this week my friend. after all, it's birthday week! why not share a little bit about myself?!

Chelsea said...

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up, either. Please write a screenplay.

Fun to read about you. I too stay up too late and I debate leaving comments because I don't want them to be time stamped at 12:37 A.M. or later.

P.S. I love your blog, I think all the girls in Nicole's class with me are now looking at your blog, because of all her raves about you, so go ahead take it serious.

P.S.S. Thank you for the referral, I am loving the class.

Thanks, I never say no to a tag!
I am with you on the crying thing - I get teary SO easily these days. For the last few years, actually.

I love learning these little bits about you!

That was a nice shout-out you got on Scoop...hopefully it will encourage you to stay with this "blogging thing."

Tears--it's got to the the hormones. I also got teary at the end of Juno!

Ali, This was fun to read.

I feel the same about #5...and I am glad you chose English as your major because your creative writing kills me - it's so fun to read and you rock at it. Is that a little 90's of me to say?

You... always love your lists, especially when they're about y-o-u! Also glad you majored in English- you've got a gift! Truly.

i never eat breakfast very often either. My stomach screams food in the morning.

amen to you writing a screenplay.

i wished my husband majored in graphic design but he didn't and still doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up which is ok by me.

i love your blog. seriously.

i like how you said you like when things ring both nice and true. i agree and will start noticing the combo more.

i stay up late. i am more productive and i like knowing everyone else is sleeping.

i like your post when we get to see your handwriting.

You didn't tag me because I've been a bad blogger right? That'll teach me. But seriously Ali, I love your list. I too have been wishing I studied Graphic Design and I have been toying with the idea of going back to study but not so keen on being a student after being in full time paid employment for the last 13 years!
But I can't believe you never eat breakfast!

Amanda Conley said...

I love lists! thanks for sharing!
p.s. you should eat breakfast. It'll keep your metabolism high. ;)

Lorilee said...

no breakfast?
I sure do miss you.

jamieanne said...

I know that nightie!!!

Catherine said...

Ali I can relate on so many of these, I wish I had studied grahic design or anything vaguely artistic! It's great to learn little pieces about you in such lovely lists, I accept your tag!
