Guest Post- Heidi

I'm traveling this week.  Right now I am back in San Diego for work, but today I leave for Vegas for vacation!  I'm doing the Vegas trip with some people who are high rollers and really like to party and not sleep, so I am a little nervous.  Say a little prayer for me that I survive the next 4 days!

While I am gone, please enjoy a very special guest post from one of my bloggy friends Heidi:

Hi 30 Before 30 readers!

My name is Heidi, and I blog over at Bartlebee's Bumblings about school, friends,

and my boring life as a 21 year old college student.

I like the idea of things to do before I turn thirty,

and I have started several lists of my own,

but I always get distracted researching the things on the list and never finish!

So, in honor of Suz's list,

I've decided to create a list of my own, but with a twist.

I combined her idea of a list with a "If you really knew me" list, inspired by Danielle from Sometimes Sweet.

So, here's 21 things you would know if you really knew me:

1. I am not very outgoing until I get to know you well. I pretty much don't talk to new people. I don't mean to be rude, I just prefer to listen.

2. I am a picky eater. Tomatoes are the bane of my existence, to the extreme that I don't even eat ketchup.

3. I hate being touched. Unless I initiate a hug, stick to a wave for your own safety.

4. I am a klutz. I injure myself walking into walls all the time. My nickname in high school was Crash.

5. I am only an English major because of #4. I love science, but klutzes and chemicals don't mix well.

6. I have never seen a single Star Wars, Star Trek, or Indiana Jones. I was apparently raised under a rock.

7. I was that kid that desperately wanted to be popular in high school. I was a cheerleader, but I was never popular.

8. I used to hate my sisters. Now I want to be my sisters. One's in school to be a chiropractor, the other an emergency room doctor.

9. I used to play "Doctor's Office" by myself when I was little, where I was a doctor's receptionist. Now, I actually am a receptionist in a medical facility. Dream come true? Not really...

10. I sometimes dream about growing up in 1912 Brooklyn alongside Francie Nolan from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, my all time favorite book.

11. If I'm mad, or just hanging out with my roommate, I cuss like a sailor on leave. If I'm not super worked up, I make up my own cuss words.

12. I love clothes, but I hate clothes shopping. When you're in between sizes like me, shopping becomes a nightmare.

13. I am easily distracted. I have been known to start several projects and completely forget about them ten to twenty minutes later.

14. I've had the same best friend since I was 13. She's my exact opposite, so much so that we can't agree on a design for our best friend tattoo.

15. I have been riding horses longer than I have been walking. Here's photographic evidence:

(To be precise, this is a mule, not a horse...)

16. I have my own mule. She's the one pictured above, and her name is Baby. She used to be my grandma's, but Grandma doesn't ride anymore.

17. I am a small town, country girl through and through. I get nervous in big cities, seeing as how I went to a high school of 117 people total, including the staff.

18. I am in the Honors program at my university, and I can't stand it. It was fun up until it wasn't.

19. I love to bake, but hate to eat what I make. Cake baking is my stress release, but I am sick of cake, so I usually give it away.

20. I started blogging because of Frills for Thrills. Sarah is the daughter of one of my coworkers, and I'm friends with her sister.

21. I am jealous of Suz. Girl has her life together - owns her own house, works for an awesome company, has the cutest animals ever. When I grow up, I wanna be her!

Well, now that you all know me a little better,

don't be afraid to hop on over and say hello!
