Five things about Moi

I've been tagged to share five things about myself.

1. In high school I was named "most unusual" for my senior year and year book. I'm still not sure if that was a compliment or not! I tend to have a unique sense of humor. I find most things funny. I don't like wasting my time on negativity and I prefer to spend my time being silly.

2. I love to read. I use it for my stress relief and to recharge myself. I was body slammed in elementary school. The injury knocked my spine out of alignment, injured a disc, and almost pinched a nerve enough to make me a quadriplegic. I was lucky and it was only my right arm that was paralyzed and after two months of physical therapy my arm was back to normal. Before my injury I led an active childhood - swimming and diving were my passions. After my injury I was unable to participate in any sports for at least a year. My mother handed me several books and it was during the year of inactivity that I truly became addicted to books.

3. I used to be a terrible procrastinator. Yes, I was TERRIBLE. I would put everything off until the last minute or never get around to it. A mother of one of my friends gave me an application to join the procrastinator's of America club... I never did get around to it. I was a fairly smart kid so I never really needed to study and I always just rushed to complete my assignments at the last minute. Once I entered the "real world" I couldn't function and be successful as a procrastinator... so now, I have to do everything right away. I've turned my greatest weakness into one of my strengths.

4. I have obsessive-compulsive tendencies. I frequently become obsessed with something and I'll spend hours of time researching, getting involved, sending emails, drafting up documents, etc... and then I'll lose interest. I can't tell you how many projects I've started and then just turned around and dropped. One of my funny little quirks is the way I run errands... it drives my husband crazy. I have to make a circle or square pattern when I run errands. I plot out all the places I have to go and I make sure that I hit each one in order. I can't make zig-zags and I can't go back. When we go strolling down a street of shops, I have to go up one and then cross and come down the other side - no criss-crossing. Also, when we pump gas, the amount has to stop on .00 or .50. My husband will just fill the tank and when the pump stops, he's done with it.

5. The greatest fear that I have is that I will develop cancer. Most specifically... I'm terrified of colon cancer. My family has a high risk of cancer and heart disease. Heart problems concern me, of course, so does my weight and the possibility of diabetes (something else that is super common in my family)... but cancer just down right terrifies me.
