16 Things about Hawks

Posted in challenge/meme, FYI, Introduction(s), Real Life with tags , , on January 14, 2009 by hawksrock

1)  I have travelled to 27 countries to date:  USA, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago, Panama, El Salvador, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Czech Rep, Hungary.  (If Vatican City counts then 28 )

2)  I am the oldest of 7 siblings, and I am still very close to all of them.   Ironically, I may be closest to the youngest who is 18 years younger.

3)  I am extremely competitive at anything and everything that can be measured.

4)  I have learned the hard way that money does not buy you happiness.

5)  I am drawn to people who have a passion for living and doing no matter how odd their hobby or interests.

6)  I started working at the age of 12 mowing lawns, and have been working ever since.

7) My father put me to work in a beef-packing plant at the age of 18 to “learn the value of my education.”

8)  I wrote a senior thesis on the African-American influx into Kansas following the Civil War – a group that was known as the Exodusters.

9)  I was a history major in college even though I can never remember names or dates, but I really love good stories and the best stories are often real.

10)  I have a habit of getting really excited about something for a while, but once I figure it out I get bored and never do it again.

11)  I would say the adjectives most often attributed to me by others are probably things like stubborn and/or cocky.

12)  I am typically optimistic, and I always try to put a positive spin on things, but at times it is impossible, and those times are very depressing.

13)  I try to laugh and joke and goof around as much as possible, because humor is one of my favorite things.

14)  My toes are double jointed (so I can pick things up quite easily with them) and I had 6 wisdom teeth instead of four, so by many standards I am an evolutionary regression.

15)  My parents moved a lot when I was growing up as my dad was promoted through different positions.   At one point in my life, I was in 6 different schools in 5 years.

16)  I have a downright fetish for ice-cream.   Jell doesn’t seem to understand the compulsive need to go get a chocolate milkshake even though it is below freezing outside.


16 Things that you never needed to know about JellyBean/Kimberlee!

Posted in challenge/meme with tags , , , on January 13, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

I was  tagged by Ana Lu! It was originally done on Flickr but Hawks said it should go here too. So here is 16 things about me that you never needed or wanted to know…

1 – I use to be a store manager of an auto parts store, but I’m not big on working on cars.

2 – I procrastinate about almost everything.

3 – For the 1st time ever, I followed my heart & moved to Kansas in Feb of last year.

4 – I’m very competitive & strong willed, I’m not exactly an easy one to break.

5 – When I feel emotional, I write privately or publicly.

6 – I just learned to love caramelized onions.

7 – I would rather visit an art museum over going on a nature hike.

8 – I’ve learned that getting to know someone takes a lot of time but carpooling is just enough time.

9 – I am a jealous person, it’s a fatal flaw. I do not share well, never have.

10 – I mostly consider myself an only child even though I have older siblings because they moved out when I was still young.

11 – I feel very lucky to have the job I have with a self-taught education in CSS/HTML.

12 – I am extremely sensitive, but unless you’re close to me, you’d probably never know.

13 – I am overly opinionated but rarely regret things I say.

14 – I like to get my nails/toes done at minimum once a month because it makes me feel pretty.

15 – I own more red/blue now that I’ve moved to Kansas then I ever have in my entire life.

16 – My real name is Kimberlee, and I hate being called Kim.

Now I know I’m suppose to tag 16 other people but I don’t want to, so…
