I've been tagged

Saturday, September 27, 2008

Yay! I was tagged by Lindsay to do a survey. I've never been tagged before :)

1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules to your blog
3. Write 6 random things about yourself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

1. I'm a little short (5 feet tall) and I used to hate it. When I was in first grade, I came home from school and asked my mom, "Why am I the smallest girl in my class!!" There turned out to be another short girl in my class, and we formed a friendship based on both being really short and tiny.

2. When I was in seventh grade, I was running through the house and ran into a door frame. I broke my toe. That's the only thing I've ever broken.

3. I decided I wanted to be an interior designer after using the computer program 3D Home Architect. I discovered this program at my dad's house, and I started drawing floor plans. My dad suggested that I become an architect. But then I realized that the only reason I drew the outside of the house was so I could design the inside. There was this option to turn the floor plan into a 3D model (hence the name) and then pick out paint colors and furniture. That was my favorite part, and that's when I learned what an interior designer was. I was in 4th grade, and I've stuck with it ever since.

4. I was very allergic to nickel. I had my ears pierced twice before I realized what the problem was. My ears got infected both times, and I still don't have my ears pierced. I can't even wear metal watches because my skin breaks out, so I have a leather watch. I also break out in welts when my skin rubs against the three prong metal part of binders.

5. I am a bit obsessed with cinnamon. I like to add it to everything I bake. In seventh grade, I made some great cinnamon muffins (at least I thought they were great) and I decided to share with my friends. Only one of my friends was brave enough to try them, and as soon as she took a bite she said, "My mouth is burning, my mouth is burning! Where is the water fountain!" Another friend asked how much cinnamon I put in the muffins. I told her, "The recipe called for two teaspoons, but I accidently put two tablespoons. And then I thought that some cinnamon sprinkled on top would look nice too."

6. This isn't really random because I've talked about my job before. I got my job in the interior design building because I really like having things my way. I'm the oldest in my family, and I grew up bossing around my sisters and being totally controlling. I don't like clutter and disorganized spaces, and since I am in the interior design building all the time, it's important to me that it's organized. I have my job so I can make the building look the way I want it to. If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.

Since it took me forever to get this written, I don't know who to tag. I think everyone has done this already.

  1. I played with 3D Home Architect when I was little, too!! :o)

  2. I love #6, that sounds so much like me, even though I was the youngest sister in my family. :)

    I've also never broken anything except for a toe. :)

  3. This is why I like to be in charge of certain activities or events. Events are often disorganized and planned late in the time line leading to more stress than was necessary.

  4. Although you didn't know your interest was a career with a name, you know you've been doing this since you were very little. Sometimes, I miss Barbie land. You were so creative.
