Countdown!

I got the idea of doing a countdown of little tidbits about me from Liesl at Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style and just loved it!  I hope some of my other followers do this too, because I just love learning new things about people:)  Here goes!

TEN things I wish I could say to people (but don't say their name!):

1. Sorry about sophomore year.  We royally f****d up, and it was mostly my fault.
2. You were amazing in every way, but just not for me.  I hope you've finally found the one, and I wish you all the best.
3. I've forgiven you for all the awful things you said.
4. Same as number 3, only I've forgiven the things you did, too.  Believe me, it was hard, but I've moved on, and so should you:)
5. I wish we had kept in touch, chica!  We used to be best friends, and now I don't get to see you:(
6. You're seriously hot.  That's all;)
7. I'm more jealous of you than I should be.  I get that we're not in competition, but it still feels that way sometimes.
8. The poetry you wrote me was so beautiful that it nearly hurt.  If nothing else, thank you for brightening my days the way you did!
9. You may be superficial, but I still love you, and always will.  Just not like that.
10. I miss hanging out with you!  I may have woken up in a pizza box a few times, but life is never boring with you around:)

Nine Things About Myself:

1. I have a habit of peeling my nail polish off soon after I do my nails.  I can spend hours doing them, then just chip it off while watching television.
2. If I weren't going into History, I'd try to break into acting.  I don't have many passions, but I'm seriously into the ones I like.
3. My favorite food is a good falafel sandwich<3
4. I have a goal to visit every country in the world.  I've visited ~17 out of around 196.  Still have a long way to go!
5. I have a sponsor child in Mexico, and someday I hope to visit her and her family.  If I could, I would pack up a car full of amazing things to take to them and roadtrip through Central America.
6. I don't wear pants, except for exercise purposes.  I don't have any religious reasons for doing so, I just prefer the freedom of skirts & dresses:)
7. I'm afraid of sea turtles.
8. I'll try anything once as long as it doesn't violate my beliefs- so no killing or eating bizarre/exotic animals!
9. I legitimately don't see a point in wearing a bathing suit to the beach- they're such scanty little items, why not just skinny dip?



Eight Ways to Win My Heart:

1. Listen to me- nothing is more amazing than a good listener.
2. Have a positive attitude- "everything is okay in the end- if it's not okay, it's not the end!"
3. Be open minded.
4. Have a sense of adventure.
5. Be spontaneous.
6. Make the world a better place- even if it's just by opening the door for a stranger, kindness goes a long way.
7. Be calm, but not boring.  No violent outbursts, no psychotic rages, etc.  Having a temper is okay- using your fists isn't.
8. Don't be judgmental.  Everyone is different, and they all deserve to live their life the way they want to.  And that's okay.


Seven Things That Cross My Mind a Lot:
1. The future.
2. Philosophy.
3. The past.
4. Food;)
5. Travel.
6. My faith.
7. My beloved cats.

SIX things I do before I fall asleep:
1. Wash my face/remove makeup.
2. Brush my teeth meticulously.
3. Drag the cat into bed so she doesn't meow all night.
4. Moisturize my lips- I can't stand them being chapped!
5. Turn something on my computer to fall asleep to- Silence makes it impossible for me to sleep.
6. Make sure my alarm is nice and loud.

Five people who mean a lot:
1. My parents.
2. My grandparents.
3. My best friends.
4. My cats (do they count?  I'm counting them!)
5. Henry VIII.  I just love that man, and have no idea why.


Four Things You're Wearing Right Now:
1. MAC makeup.
2. A soft purple dress.
3. A cozy cardigan.
4. A cameo necklace.

Three Songs You Listen to Frequently (currently):
1. What Makes You Beautiful: One Direction
2. Glad You Came: The Wanted
3. Somebody That I Used to Know (Remixes): Gotye.

TWO Things You Want to Do Before You Die:
1. Go somewhere forbidden...a country or city that I'm totally not supposed to be in.
2. Hike to Choquequirao and see the more hidden ruins:)


ONE confession:

1. I hate surprises.  No idea why:(

Thanks for reading all this crazy stuff about me.  Now, it's your turn- are you going to do one of these lists?  If so, let me know, so I can read yours too:)

Until Next Time,

Ashley

  29. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
