I’ve Been Liebster’d!

My sweet and wonderful friend nominated me for A Liebster Award, which if you have no idea what this is then click here. In turn, I must list eleven facts about me and answer her eleven questions that she’s asked me. Then, I have to nominate eleven other blogs to do the same. So here we go!

11 Facts About Me:

1. I originally wanted to go to school for Radiology and when I calculated what time I would actually begin working, I vetoed that idea. I hate school so the thought of being a student for 8+ years sickened me. I love interior design and I know I fit well here.

2. I call myself an avid Miami Heat fan, but secretly I’m a Lebron James follower. Shhh.. Don’t say anything.

3. I adopted a dog off of Craigslist one year ago and it has ended up being one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. Taking care of a puppy, while it destroys everything you hold dear, is both exhausting and frustrating. I wouldn’t trade the past year for anything in the world.

4. I have chosen the sector of Hospitality design to practice in. I recently went to Las Vegas with my family and fell in love with the architecture and design of those fabulous hotels. I can only dream of designing something like that.

5. My first plan ride was on the trip to Vegas. It’s was both the most exhilarating and terrifying experience of my life.

6. I have been blessed to say I fell in love with the only boy I ever kissed. Going on six years now, I have to say I’m a pretty lucky lady. 

7. John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Matt Nathanson are just a few of my all-time favorite singers. Give me a CD with these guys and I’m out like a light.

8. I made an 18 on my ACT. Another reason why I knew med-school wasn’t going to work.

9. When I was little, my mother created a real-life classroom in our basement. I had school desks, a white board, an over-head projector, and stuff with Ms. Osborn on it. I thought I was legit.

10. I am slightly overly obsessed with sharks and know way too much about them. It’s a weird trait that I have and I’m okay with it. In another life, I’ll be a marine biologist.

11. I was on the danceline at my highschool for two years but I can’t dance worth crap. This year, as far as a resolution, I would like to learn some moves.

11 Questions from Jaime:
