My Liebsters

It's taken me a while but I am finally getting around to doing and answering my Liebster award questions. Well I am supposed to list 11 random things abut me then answer the questions that I was asked. Well here goes.

11 Random Things

  • I am deathly afraid of dogs. It is quite embarrassing really. I don't care if it is a puppy. My fear is real.
  • I hate tomatoes. I always pick it out my sandwiches or request for it to be taken out. But I like stew.
  • Even though they are technically the same thing, I prefer gummy worms to gummy bears.
  • I hate shoes. They are pretty yes but they are devil contraptions. They hurt and suck. I guess high heeled shoes?
  • I am all of 5'3
  • I have mild ocd (kidding of course). I may or may not have not gone to an ATM because it is on the "wrong side of the road"
  • I am also scared of heights but will try almost everything once. So in spite of my fear, I have rappelled down a 15 story building, gone on stupid scary rides and para sailed. I draw the line at skydiving or bungee jumping. That will never happen.
  • I am a miles whore. I get giddy counting/checking my airline miles. I love watching them stack up and need to be talked into using them.
  • I really enjoy concerts and have been to a number of them by myself.
  • I LOVE to dance. I'm not sure it is possible for me to sit still while music is playing. Back in the day, I was a part of a world/hip hop dance group called ORIZON where we performed at different venues and I got to choreograph an African dance routine.
  • I have visited the Berlin wall and also the Nazi Concentration Camp in Auschwitz. It was awful. That's all I can say.
