7 Things Meme

I have no idea how I have escaped this meme for as long as it's been around the internet. Or maybe I was tagged prior, and just forgot or didn't know. Who knows.

Lori tagged me yesterday for the 7 things meme...here ya go...

1. I have two tatoos.
2. I bite my fingernails. Always have, always will. You can't stop me.
3. I also bite the inside of my mouth. A really, really bad habit.
4. I want to teach more than anything in the world (other than hanging out with my family), but I am scared shitless that I will not do a good job at it.
5. I have stretch marks from my pregnancies. And one goes right through a tatoo.
6. I am a text book Libra - I want everyone around me to be happy, and I have a hard time saying no.
7. I love ghost stories, and I tivo Ghost Hunters on the SciFi channel, and the Haunting on the Discovery channel. I do believe in ghosts, and my grandparents old farm house was haunted.

And there you have it, 7 really lame things you did not know about me before. And since I don't know who has done this and who hasn't, if you want to play along, feel free. Happy Hump Day.

Tatoo huh? You wild thing...

Everyone's afraid of failure, it's why I haven't actively seeken a new job, I'm afraid that I won't do a good job of it. I kept thinking that way till another one of my ex coworkers asked me "When have you ever done a bad job at anything that you've done?". That really helped to put things into perspective. You won't do a bad job, you will totally rock, but you're going to have to get rid of the wanting everyone to be happy syndrome :P

Ghosts, I didn't know that. You should read that book When Ghosts Speak that I reviewed.

Kellie said...

Never would've guessed on the tattoos!!

I know you'll be an awesome teacher :) YOU need to know that, too!

Julie said...

I second the "never would have guessed on the tatoo" thing. What kind?

Michele_3 said...

That's some good info!
I like that meme- I might have to steal it for my blog..gotta know what the tatoo is though!

I love ghost stories too! did you see that episode on Ghost Hunters when they went to St. Augustine in the lighthouse- We were in that same exact lighthouse over Thanksgiving weekend- It gave me chills to watch that episode.

Rachel said...

I think you would make a wonderful teacher!!

Pam said...

Not lame at all- fun to read! You won't fail at being a teacher - from what I know about your through this fancy little blog, you will be great. SO wish you were my student teacher!

Misty said...

I have three tattoos. What are your two of? Is it strange to say that I like the idea of a stretch mark going through one? It seems quite cool...

There was something else I was going to say but I can't remember. OH YES... I chew on the inside of my mouth too!

Much More Than A Mom said...

Let's see those tattoos, you wild woman you!

Laura said...

ok, so now I'll tell you that I too not only believe in ghosts, but my son Henry actually gets visited by them. At first we thought he was making stuff up (when he was 3 1/2) but then he started to tell us all about "Rich" and how he came in his room and sat on his bed and talked to him.
Turns out, when we went to my inlaws for a visit, my MIL had a picture of her long deceased father on her dresser and my then 4 yr old Henry said, " That's Rich." (he had never seen a pic before then...)

I had a ghost once and had to call some real ghost busters to get rid of it.

and it worked!

Lil Mouse said...

what kind of tattoos and where? i sat on my hands to keep myself from biting my nails. finally it worked. VERY occasionally i take a nip or two, then get pissed at myself.

have you considered being a room mom (is that what they're called) for your kid's school just to see what the fuss is all about?

Kelly M said...

I also bite the inside of my mouth...especially when I'm nervous! Your right..it sucks..and is a bad habit!

As for the teaching...I know you will be great at it!! Even though I don't really know you...I can tell you have the heart to do it..and really that right there is 95% of the job!!

Amy said...

I'm a Libra too...very textbook as well! My hubby and two of my three children are Libras too! Can you imagine the stubborness in this house in a few years?

my4kids said...

I rend to bite the inside of my mouth also and it is a bad habit!
I tend to believe in ghosts also but not sure if I've actually experienced them or not

SJ said...

Hey! Guess What?! I knew most of that stuff already. And I totally remember your Dad telling us the most scariest ghost stories I've ever heard! I too have stretch marks (grrrr!) and I really, really hope you get to teach someday soon!
