10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Thanks to the ever awesome Millie for tagging me! If you haven't read her post yet, YOU NEED TO!! It is amazingly wowie kazam awesome and no I'm not exaggerating that!

1.) I think history is so fascinating! I love finding how things started and what the people were doing in the process of the event. It seems so interesting to me. I hope on my birthday to go to Philly and visit some of the historical places there.

2.) I don't really know if I have a style. I typically just wear a t-shirt and jeans but I really would like to change that. I want to evolve my style and make it more of a 60's look ala Audrey Hepburn, Jean Seberg, Anna Karina, Shirley Maclaine, and Edie Sedgwick. Those ladies had so much style and I would love to incorporate into my daily wear. Also I would steal their hairstyles!

3.)  I'm the worst procrastinator in the world. I will say I'm going to do something and then either I forget or I just do it way overdue. I really need to work on being less of procrastinator... I mean I'm going to try... oh wait I was going to stop doing that!

4.) When I was a kid I was pretty much terrified of every "scary" movie out there. While my brothers, Mom, and Dad reveled in the thrill of excitement from the movies, I would usually hide under the covers in my bedroom with the lights on.

5.) I love every decade that has passed but my favorites are the 1930's, the 1960's, and the 1980's. I just love how every decade was different and unique to the times. I love the styles, the music, the movies, and the stars!! Everything about those times were so fascinating! I seriously wish I could back in time to visit and see what it was all like. (except I wouldn't care to see the racism and the sexism that occurred in the 1930's and the 1960's!)

6.) My favorite song of all time is Tenderness by General Public. That song is pure perfection! I pretty much could listen to it everyday of my life and never get bored with it.

7.) I don't know how to drive! I know most of you people will say that there is no excuse for an almost 24 year old to not know how to drive and I'd agree but I'm actually really scared of driving. I realize I have to get over my fear eventually and I'm actually making plans to study to get my permit. I can't allow a silly little fear to stop me from moving forward with my life.

8.) I really really really want to cut my hair short again. Now that its longer again, I just want it to be short. I just miss it so much. *tear*

9.) I was a cheerleader in elementary school for a whole MONTH! I actually really hated it and I hated how the Moms' got, so I just quit after a month. I also tried gymnastics and soccer and decided that I wasn't right for those either. Gymnastics was because I'm just not meant to be that flexible and soccer, I was 5 and I was more concerned with having crushes on the coaches than playing the actual game.

10.) I'm not a smoker or drinker and therefore I can be bit of a party pooper. I'm very against smoking and have told many people the risks that come with smoking but they don't care to listen to me. I had sips of drinks but never really liked them at all. I prefer Cranberry Lemonade or Birch Beer. I'd rather stay home and watch a movie or read a book than go out get plastered.

If you want to do this tag go for it!! Everyone is tagged now!!

I had no idea that you didn't drive either!! I did for a little while when I turned 17 and then I stopped after about a year. I'm so scared to start again, but I'm just so tired of always having to have someone to take me everywhere :\

I always wish I could go back in time too but sexism, racism and the lack of modern convenience (like penicillin or air conditioning) all ruin it for me. I think it would be cool if all of the vintage-loving people in the world got together and made their own city instead :) Then we could have a vintage world with modern human rights and conveniences :D

I only live like 35 minutes away from Philadelphia and I've been there so many times but we hardly ever see any of the historical sites! I went on a field trip in school to the Liberty Bell and the Franklin Institute, but when we go nowadays we usually just go to the museums instead. I love the Academy of Natural Sciences (they have dinosaurs!!) :D

ps. You would look so cute with the 60's style!! Do it!! :D
