If You Weren't Real, I Would Make You Up

My favorite speed [mph] to drive is 40. Whether the speed limit's 25 or 65, I like 40.

I wheeze when I do pushups [lately].

When something catches me off guard and I think it's funny, my laugh sounds like a honk [just ask my housband].

I am far too sentimental, and I keep things people give to me for far too long. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings.

I am also far too guilty about throwing/giving these things away, though I know nobody will miss them.

If you mimic my laugh, I'll laugh so hard I cry.

When I cry, I breathe loudly. I don't cry in public [hardly ever] because it's embarrassing. Plus, I just don't cry in public... it makes me really uncomfortable.

I like to think positively. I think life is better remembered by the good parts, not the bad. Though the bad, in retrospect, can be good.

I like to sing at any given moment. I'm not great.

I try not to complain, and negativity makes me feel sick.

I dislike knowing about other people's unhappiness and not being able to do anything about it.

I like dreaming about things like going to Ireland and making it big with photography, but I'm too scared to take the first step.

I'm actually pretty timid.

Sometimes I say really stupid things, and I regret it immediately.

I generally only listen to music when I really need it--when I'm upset, when I'm at work, or when I'm furiously cleaning.

I like watching movies about families.

I like things that are whimsical. Like teacups and things in antique stores.

I am really good at Mariokart.

I am also spectacularly awesome at procrastination.

I want to go back to school someday, but not here. Somewhere else.

I think things over far too much.
