A Few Questions and Answers...

Hidey Ho everyone. I was thinking about my post fr today and I had a great idea but I need at least 5 if these random things to talk about since 3 isn't enough and 4 is an even number. But this list is 48 things, which is even, but it's OK. Don't ask, please don't, because I can't really explain it. 
MKay. I came across this quiz on a few blogs and on FB and I thought it would be fun to do. It's a little long so grab a snack or something. 
1.  Fired a gun– Yes
2.  Married–  Yes
3.  Fell in love–  Yes 
4.  Swam in an ocean– Yes. When I was a kid. I;ve been to the ocean several times but I don't really like swimming in it. I think the ocean is a giant toilet for fish. There, I said it. The ocean is a giant fish toilet.
5.  Gone on a blind date– I don't remember one. I've been on some random dates, but not completely blind that someone else hooked me up with.
6.  Skipped school–  I didn't in HS but everyone skipped a class or 2 in college. Fun fact, I took a history of jazz class in college that I only attended 3x. (it was once a week class). You could take the mid term and final test or write 2 papers. I did the papers, and got As on each.

12.  Been to Washington D.C. - A couple of times. I like DC. I recently started asking Kev for a weekend trip to DC or Williamsbug VA. He said those seemed like odd weekend trip requests and I realized I'd just been listening to Hamilton A LOT. 
I could maybe go to Chicago and see... wait for it... Alexander Camelton
13.  Been to Nashville– I was there for work several years ago but that was before camera phones and Facebook, so I have no memories of it.
14.  Visited Florida– Yes, a few times for cruises and 3x just recently for vacation and Kappa Delta stuff.

  1. ha! i skipped half my high school years hanging out at different high schools LOL. in fact, i was at my friend's high school so much that people actually thought i went there...and these are friends i've known forever!

    1. I was such a nerd. I never skipped school. If you missed fewer than 3 days each semester, you didn't have to take mid terms and finals. I never took them.

  2. I actually saved this in my drafts to do myself :)
    You must get back to Nashville - such a fun place.
    I LOL'ed at the tattoo one. I dont care how old I am, I'd have to hide mine from my mom too :)

    1. My mom posted a comment on the blog link I posted on the FB page. I didn't read it, but I'm sure I'll hear about it later.

  3. I swear that the biggest perk of taking History of Jazz was barely attend and write the papers! Score! A+!!! That and the *Fairy Tale* lit class! I think that's the only college book I still have. Lol

    1. History of Jazz was the best! I went 3 times, A. One of my shining college acheivements

  4. Oh man, I tried to go scuba diving and nearly drowned during training, and I attempted to learn how to drive stick and almost broke my (now ex) bf's car! Haha! So cool that you were in a movie! I like DC but Williamsburg VA is just so different and I hope you get a chance to visit! What's your tattoo of?

    1. i don't think I could do the scuba diving. i hate getting my face wet! I have a rose on my back. It was supposed to be white but white doesn't show, so I had it re-done in red.

  5. These quizzes are always fun. I have been to Canada, Florida and Nashville. I really really want to ride on an elephant!!! I love elephants. I would be ok just meeting one!

    1. I would soooo ride an elephant. I'll have to figure out ow I can make that happen!
