Going Green with the Grizls

Today's Summer Challenge topic is:

List 15 Interesting Things About Yourself 

Here goes nothin! 

  1. I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.
  2. I've lived in 6 different states, 4 in just the past 5 years.
  3. When I was a kid my dad taught me how to ride a unicycle.
  4. Since becoming an adult, watching anything that swings gives me motion sickness. Rollercoasters are fine, swings not so much. 
  5. I speak Chinese almost fluently, so does my husband (but I'm better at it than him ;) ). When we first met we were studying Chinese in California, a lot of the first conversations we had together weren't in English. 
  6. I like to sing really loudly in the car. 
  7. I was enlisted in the Air Force for almost 3 years. 
  8. My husband and I got married in an old court house, in a little town in West Texas.. it was a week before I told my parents. 
  9. I used to play the violin, and still own a really nice one. I dream about playing in an orchestra again. 
  10. I'm not allergic to any foods that I know of.
  11. I have 2 tattoos (above my right ankle: the big dipper and north star that's on the Alaska flag; on my back between my shoulder blades is a scorpion [I'm a Scorpio, did you guess?]) and I think I'd like to get another sometime soon... I think I want a starfish!
  12. I love making anything from scratch.
  13. When I was 5 I taught myself to read. I've been a bookworm ever since. 
  14. I'm a huge nerd. Fantasy, anime, you name it. The only reason I don't play video games is because they are so addicting, but every now and then I'll play something with my husband.
  15. 3 is my lucky number.


  1. I love your list! I can relate to a lot of them!! With #4 I'm the opposite; swings are fine, rollercoasters not at all!!

  2. Awesome list!! I am also wanting another tattoo, I'm thinking the Narcissus flower (December birth flower) for my little girl.

  3. I love this list! I played clarinet, and still own a vintage wooden one that is awesome - I would love to play again, but it needs to be recorked and repadded.

  4. I played the flute. I sold one of them last year and wish I had it back because something happened and the other one ended up full of mold from our storage unit. :(

  5. Which states have you lived in? What a neat fact that you and your husband's first conversations were not in English!

    1. I've lived in Alaska, California, Texas, Maryland, and now we live in Hawaii! It was actually hard for us to talk about our "feelings" (lol) in English at first!
