THE FRIDAY FIVE

  1. What is one thing about you that you hate? The fact that I worry about and stress out over pretty much EVERYTHING!!!
  2. What is one thing about you that you love? That I am a compassionate person.
  3. If you had to change one thing about you what would it be and why? I would love to not let things get to me. Sometimes just the way someone says something sets me off & it ends up ruining my day. And, I hate that!!! I'd love to be able to just let things roll off my back.

FRIDAY FIVER

  1. Last party you went to? Bubby's birthday party.

  3. Have you ever fired a gun? Yes.
  4. Where do you call home? Greenville, SC
  5. What's your favorite board game? Chickenfoot (may not be considered a true board game), Imaginiff, Apples to Apples and Cranium.

FRIDAY FUN

  1. When you look back at your childhood dreams, has your life gone in the direction you expected? Oh, absolutely not! I'm so far on the totally opposite end of where I imagined myself.
  2. What were the three most life changing events in your life? How did they shape who you are? The biggest thing would have to be my daddy's cancer diagnosis in 2001, his 2nd diagnosis in 2005 and his death in 2006. This was the hardest thing I've ever had to go through, but it taught me so much about life. Losing my grandmother in 2004 was really difficult, too. She was the one person I could always count on and losing her was extremely difficult. I guess the 3rd thing would be going back to college. I met some of my best friends there and also have learned so much about myself. It has also helped me gain a lot of confidence in myself that I didn't have before.
  3. Is there anything you would drastically change about your life or are you content with where your life has taken you? I would love to feel more secure financially (wouldn't we all?). I'm in a pretty bad place right now and have had to move in with my Mom. This has been extremely difficult for me, but I hope it will only be temporary. Other than that situation, I'm fairly content with the way things are.

FRIDAY 5

  1. What’s too spicy for your tastes? A lot of Mexican dishes - - - especially the peppers & jalapenos.
  2. What’s too sweet for your tastes? The icing on the cakes at the bakery my Mom works at. She loves it (and A LOT of people do), but it's rather nauseating for me.
  3. What’s too salty for your tastes? I'm not a big chip fan, unless they're the baked kind. They tend to have less salt.
  4. What’s too bitter for your tastes? I can't think of anything specific right now, but I don't really like anything bitter.
  5. What’s too sour for your tastes? Those sour warheads or whatever they are that kids love. They just about bring me to tears every time I attempt to eat one.

FRIDAY FEAST

APPETIZER: If you could live on another continent for 1 year, which one would you choose? It would be a toss-up between Europe and Australia, but I'd probably end up choosing Europe because so many of the places I want to visit are there.

SOUP: Which browser do you use to surf the Internet? I use Mozilla Firefox at home and really like it A LOT better than Internet Explorer.

SALAD: On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you know about the history of your country? I'm a history buff. I almost majored in history my first time in college, but changed my mind. I would say I'm probably somewhere between a 6 and an 8.

MAIN COURSE: Finish this sentence: Love is . . . Love is . . . the best feeling in the world.

DESSERT: Have you ever been in or near a tornado? Yes, when I was a child, and it was no fun! It did quite a bit of damage to my house. I was riding in a vehicle with a lady from the church. We were on our way to a concert. It was so scary. The sky turned green. Objects (stop signs, etc.) were flying all over the place. The whole 'train whistle' thing was happening. It was just terrible!

Well, that about does it. Have a GREAT weekend!
