40 Random Facts About Me

I'm a curious person by nature, so I always enjoy reading about other people. I find it so interesting. I figured other people may be the same way, so I thought I'd share some really random facts about myself.
This is harder than it looks, but feel free to challenge yourself to do this too!
Here are 40 facts you may not know about me:

1. I wear my highest heels when I am cleaning my room. I like to pretend that I am fabulous.

2. I can't go to sleep until all my drawers are shut on my dresser. 

3. When I was 12 years old, my aunt let me witness my cousin being born. It was a crazy experience, but my little cousin, Matt, and I have a very special bond because of it.
isn't he cute!??!?!

5. I'm a (minor) picky eater. Although a pet peeve of mine are picky eaters. I know, hypocritical.  

6. I can watch the same movie/ tv show episode over and over again, even if I have already seen it 5 times before. It drives my family nuts. Oh, and I tend to re-read books a lot

7. Throughout school, (even college) professors have either forgotten my name or called me another name (Amanda mainly). One teacher even told the principal that there was no "amber" in this class, and to take her off his roster. Pretty mortifying.

8.  I would rather be in a roomful of 3 year olds than a room full of adults. They're funnier. 

9. I left my heart in Paris two summers ago.
on top of the eiffel tower.

10. When I was younger, I got to perform a dance solo at the Miss Texas Pageant and I completely forgot all of my routine. I'm not a good dancer at all- no coordination!

11. I've never met a flavor of Bluebell Ice Cream I didn't like.

12.  Today, my breakfast was half a chocolate donut. Lunch was a slice of pizza and dinner was two slices of pizza. Healthy, huh?

13. On that note, I could eat pizza all day everyday. 

14.  I won a sweepstakes a few years ago, and I got to fly out to L.A. to meet one of my favorite artists: Taylor Swift. Yes, she is just as sweet as you'd think.

15. I often have the same nightmare over and over again ever: I am stuck at an indoor pool and I am drowning. This started when I was a young girl. 

16. Because of that, I don't like public pools or waterparks... well that and because they're yucky.

17. I am also deathly afraid of deep water, mainly because I don't know whats under me. 

18. Some girls name their future children, I name my future dogs: 
two large Goldendoodles whom I will name Winston and Genevieve.

19. I hate wearing pink and avoid it at all costs.

20.  I cannot do a math equation to save my life, but I can crank out a 5 page paper like it's nobody's business. 

21. I always have to have my toenails painted, even in the winter. Currently, they are aqua and glittery.
but I hardly ever have my fingernails painted.  

22. I solve all my problems in the shower. It's also when I 'ugly' cry. 

23. I never memorized all my multiplication tables because I had a pencil in 3rd grade with all them on it. I guess you could call that cheating. To this day I couldn't tell you what 7x7 is off the top of my head. See #20.

24. I went to my senior prom by myself. I also wore cowboy boots.

25. I skipped ninth grade.

26. My favorite {most recent}movies are Shutter Island and Midnight in Paris.
My all time favorite movie, though, is Christmas Vacation.
Oh, and Clue

27. I have abnormally small hands. When people notice, I am forced to reenact Tarzan with them.

28. I dropped a can of Pledge on my big toe, and my toenail grows back crooked to this day.
maybe this is the reason why I always have to have my toenails painted. 

29. I laugh during uncomfortable situtations. It's pretty embarrassing. 

30. I lived in Calgary, Canada for 1 year. (which is also the reason why I skipped a grade) Yes, it was cold and it snowed. a lot.

31. I was an officer of my high school's French Club. 

32.  My mom always threw the most awesome birthday parties for me as a kid. For example, one year all my friends and I went to see monsters inc. in theaters, then we all camped out in my back yard in tents. Oh, and she threw a 70's disco party and covered all the walls in our house with aluminum foil. It rocked. 

33. I can't dance. (Have I mentioned that already?)  In fact, at all the middle school dances, I sat on a bench and watched (like a creeper).

34. Once my family went to a drive-thru zoo, and a zebra attacked me. 

35. I have Victor Hugo's "demain des l'aube" Poem memorized, in french. I also have the Preamble to the constition memorized.
But definitely not 7x7

36. I met my best friend in orchestra in middle school. We still are bffs to this day, even though we haven't lived in the same state for 8 years.

37. Oh, and if you notice above, I died my hair brown once. It was a very bad idea. See also: taylor swift picture. 

38. I would rather scrub a dirty public restroom with my bare hands than watch the news.

39. My dream in life is to one day travel the world!

40. I'm happiest when I am surrounded by family.
and chocolate.
