Seven Random Facts

I’ve been tagged twice now (by Andrea K and WifeMomChocoholic), so I suppose it’s time for me to take my turn at seven random facts.

1) I have been almost vegetarian for the last six years. I eat seafood once or twice a month, but other than that my diet is completely vegetarian.

2) I got arrested when I was 14 for trying to sneak into Elizabeth Taylor’s birthday party at Disneyland.

3) I hate shopping. I don’t mind grocery shopping so much, but I hate shopping for everything else. My poor mother really wanted to have a daughter so that she could have a shopping buddy. Now she is holding out hope that I will have a daughter who will like to shop with her.

4) I love to travel. International travel is my favorite. I have been to many places throughout Europe, a few places in Asia and last summer I went to Peru. This August my husband and I are going to Italy. I’m really looking forward to it!

5) When I was a kid, I wanted to be an actress. I even went to a performing arts high school for my junior and senior years. But then I got burned out and didn’t want to act anymore. I still don’t have any desire to act. I think it’s strange how I have no interest in something after loving it for so many years.

6) It took me seven years to get my bachelor’s degree. School was the source of many battles when I was growing up, and I developed a huge resistance to it. I actually dropped out of college twice. I am really proud of myself for going back, trudging through and getting my degree.

7) I really want to have a baby. My husband isn’t quite ready yet. He wants to finish his master’s degree first, which is logical. We are planning to start trying this winter. I’m so excited!

Now it’s my turn to tag someone, and I’m going to tag…Gemma!

"conscious living"

simply stated and very meaningful.

wonderful way to describe eating disorder recovery. resonates with me very much.

my motto- recovery is real.

With care,

I am starkly realizing that conscious living and conscious eating need to go hand in hand. I cannot hide from conscious living without causing issues with conscious eating.
Thank you for the post.

Em - Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your motto.

Imm - I agree 100%. Learning to live more consciously is the main reason I am able to eat consciously.

Lily - Thanks! I'm super excited!

It took me 8 years to get my B.A. I dropped out, went to secretarial school, worked a lot of crappy jobs, and finally decided to buckle down and finish. Now, of course, I think about what an idiot I was...but you know what they say about hindsight!

A baby...very fun!!! We'll be waiting for news :-)
