So...7 things about me! Here we go!
1. I'm vegan...and I looooove food!! Haha! People always tease me because I'm pretty small/petite, but boy, can I eat! Yummm!
2. I'm definitely addicted to lip balm... I realized yesterday that I was literally carrying around six different tubes of lip balm in my purse....and then I bought a new one. But...I don't like chapped lips!
3. I live with four doggies...and 3/4 of them are mine! It gets really crazy sometimes (our house is pretty small!) but I love them so much, I wouldn't have it any other way ♥
4. I just graduated with my B.S. in Geoenvironmental Studies in December '10. It took me 6 1/2 years to get my degree because I transferred to several different universities and went out-of-state for a few years. But I wouldn't trade those years or my experience for anything - it made me who I am today!
5. I just started grad school in the same field (Geoenvironmental) - with a concentration in Geology and Coastal Geomorphology. I'm a nerd!!!
6. I have 4 tattoos, and definitely plan on getting more. I don't know exactly what or where yet, though. Actually 3 of my 4 tattoos were spur-of-the-moment things, which I prefer. ;-)
7. I used to be absolutely terrified of children! I just never had any maternal instincts, or even knew how to interact with them - until I was about 24 or 25! Now I babysit my advisor's 3 kids, and love it (most of the time). Maybe I'm just a really late-bloomer?
8. I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) - I feel really down-in-the-dumps in the wintertime... I'm just not meant for cold weather! Although this winter I've been feeling pretty good. :-)
*Oops, I just realized I was only supposed to tell you 7 things about myself. Well, you can blame it on the fact that I'm an overachiever!! (Eep, was that #9??)
15 Recently-Discovered Bloggers*:
*Recently discovered by me, anyway!
Well...that's only 11, but those are my most recently discovered and 'emerging' blogs!
Thanks again to Kami for giving me this award, and I hope that you all will find some new blogs that you enjoy reading!
