25 Random Things

I did this on Facebook and it was kind of fun, so I wanted to post it here too:

25 Random Things about Me

1. I love going out to eat with friends, family, or whoever. I especially love Taco Bell and Olive Garden, but I also like to explore new places like local Mexican restaurants, or downtown eateries.

2. I love Dogs. I never knew I was a dog person until I got my miniature poodle named Mary Jane. She is like my child. My husband and I actually started watching the TV show The Dog Whisperer. We love the show and it helps us understand our dogs better.

3. I love to go the mountains especially the Sequoias. I like to camp and see nature, but I don’t like to be in nature for long periods of time. I’m too much of a wimp when it comes to the cold, bugs, or no showers. The campfire and nature strolls make up for it though.

4. EVERY NIGHT before I go to bed, I tuck my pajama pants into my socks. I hate when my pants ride up and my legs get cold. Pajama pants must be properly secured!

5. My junior and senior years of high school I was involved in SRO (students reaching out against drugs and alcohol), volleyball, softball, conflict management, student store, and I completed 4 years of the business academy. I was even voted Senior class “Best Personality”.

6. I LOVE my Ipod. It’s one of my best friends. My favorite band/singer is Paramore, Daughtery, Carrie Underwood, and Colbie Caillat.

7. I’m late to a lot of events including church, work, and appointments.

8. I have a travel itch…I want to explore the world and see and experience all sorts of different places and cultures. My husband and I went on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera, and that was the start of it. It was so fantastic and intriguing!

9. I love getting dressed up, and “looking cute”. The way I see it… me at my BEST is the “real me”. This includes my face with make- up, my hair done, a good attitude, and a happy contenance.

10. There are lots of twins in mine and my husband’s family. My husband has sisters who are twins, and nieces who are twins. I have a brother and sister who are twins, and I myself have a twin sister. My husband and I would love to have a set of twins ... but we’ll see.

11. I love social events. I have actually gone to 3-4 parties that I wasn’t invited to. I love talking, laughing, and making friends.

12. The most trouble I got into during my school days was in 5th grade. I started wading up toilet paper, getting them wet , and throwing them on the bathroom ceiling. I got about 4 other kids doing it, then one of them ratted me out. Haha!!

13. I like artsy crafty stuff. I love making jewelry. I made a cute silver necklace once and actually received 3 compliments on it in 1 day! Woo-hoo!!

14. I am in a group that plays bunko once a month and it’s super fun! I plan on starting a craft club once a month so I can learn how to do more stuff from other people.

15. I worked at FedEX in Reno, NV for about 3 ½ years and I LOVED it. It’s been my favorite job I’ve ever had because I learned a ton and make lots of good friends.

16. I love watching movies and my favorite TV shows , which include American Idol, Grey’s anatomy, Lost, Wife Swap, the Dog whisperer, and The Girls Next Door…although I’m pretty upset about them breaking up.

17. I recently started wearing glasses. I have a love hate relationship with them right now.

18. I don’t necessarily like to work out, but I LOVE the results, so I try to work out often in order to stay healthy.

19. When I moved away from home, I discovered that I can be funny and outgoing. Apparently not everyone is as funny and crazy as my family. I was the quiet one in my family, not so in the real world…weird.

20. I’m very indecisive. I go back and forth in a decision then I still can’t make a decision. I once spent an hour in Sportsman Warehouse trying to decide which tackle box I should get for my crafts. It drove my husband nuts!

21. I love going to the beach, lake, river, or pool. I love the water, even though, I’m not that great of a swimmer.

22. I was an Account Manager for a logistics company for almost 2 years. I quit a couple months ago because my husband is the night manager for WinCo Foods and we weren’t seeing each other. I am now a housewife. It’s kind of weird to go from workaholic to stay at home wife, but I’m appreciating my time.

23. I will break out into song and dance randomly on a daily basis. I’ll belt out whatever song comes to mind and start dancing to the beat. I usually have a song stuck in my head the moment I wake up. Once I start singing it, I know it’s time to get up.. is the weird?

24. I recently made a “Janeece’s Life Book” to help me prioritize and organize my life in general. The taps say: goals, to do, calendar, marriage and family, church and motivation, career and education, projects and events, and health and wellness. I’m in the process of filling it.

25. Some other random hobbies include reading, playing volleyball, and shopping. I would like to learn how to ride a horse, learn how to cook some cool recipes, and getting into volunteer stuff.

26. I love spending time with my family and friends no matter what we are doing. Talking, eating, playing games, whatever as long as we are together.

27. I get detracted easily and I’m a little spacey. When I talk to someone I will go off topic, get excited about something else then talk about that topic, interrupt, listen, then forget what we were talking about in the first place, so then I’ll go on to something new.

28. I kept thinking of things about me so I didn’t stop at 25. I guess I like to do things my way. Although, I can be easy going too.
