Anyways, my buddy Evani from simplyevani.com, did a link-up and I decided to join... Maybe you and I will get to know more about myself, hehe.
1 - WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PHOBIA?
I have several. Certain flying & jumping insects (READ: damn you Cockroach!) I had many encounters with cockroaches when I was living in Indonesia. One time when I was in high school, I was in a hurry and grab a pair of whatever black shoes I could find, put it on, and hopped on to my car. The drive to school is about 1 hour. Anyways, as I said goodbye to my dad & driver, I hopped out and started walking... Till I felt something moving beneath my right foot. I was like, "wth is this?" Starting to freak out, I removed my foot from my shoe and saw this HUGE cockroach fly out of that damn shoe!!!! I HAD A FREAKIN ROACH IN MY SHOE THE WHOLE HOUR!!! I screamed like nobody's business!!! Another encounter was when I had to grab something in my room, on top of my desk. So there I was, minding my own business, grabbing that something and next thing you knew, A HUGE ROACH flew towards me off my desk. I screamed like a chick and yelled at my maid's husband to kill that damn sucker. I was paranoid all night sleeping in my room. URGH. But when I was in Honduras, I faced my fear. I hate jumping insects, but anyways, I slept in the top bunk, right next to a fellow Brigade, Ashley (who apparently hates insects too). Our beds are against the wall. So the first morning we were there, while everyone is slowly waking up, I felt Ashley moving like crazy. And she squealed. I woke up and went, "AAAAAH". Next to her is a HUGE grasshopper on the wall, staring at her. She's freakin out, I'm like, "EFF ME" and the other girls in the dorm room were like, "AAAHHH". Ash is not moving at all, I was like, "great... I have to get this sucker." I grabbed a plastic bag, and it took me like 5 minutes to pump up and convinced myself to catch this green man, and with my hands under the bag, I cupped that sucker in my hand, tied the bag quickly, while feeling that thing jumping around, told another person to take this damn bag out and release this little green thing out in the wild. At least, he survived. So did Ash & I. Damn.
2 - IF YOU COULD RE-LIVE ANY DAY OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE & WHY?
Man, there's so many memories, but I guess I can name a few. Or one. How about one. Or two. Well let's go. One is probably graduating Nursing school. For the first time, I really can feel how proud my parents and grandma was seeing me up in the podium getting pinned. I know they're proud with me no matter what, but this time I truly felt it. The joy was in the air. Two is when Rob & I had our first, ehm, kiss. I was single for a long ass time until Rob & I started going out. That day/night was awesome, we caught up with our lives at the beach with our church Youth group (we were good friends in the beginning, but then he kinda disappear in my life [long story]) and he dropped me off home. Next thing you know, we kissed, and I had the biggest smile of all time. Once I got in to my room, I danced with Chimmy (true story). We did the waltz and fist pump. The following day we had our first date, watching my other Robert (Downey Jr) doing awesomeness, Iron Man. 4 + years, we're going strong, stronger than ever. (SORRY LUGU FOR SHARING THIS STORY BUT I HAD TO)
3 - IF YOU COULD CHOOSE TO STAY A CERTAIN AGE FOREVER, WHAT AGE WOULD IT BE?
14. One of the best times of my life. I had all of my sisters (Cha-Cha Family forever) with me, my first boyfriend (who is now married to one of my sisters, and they're having a baby coming. Confused, yet?), school was awesome and we were all popular. Junior High Rules. I had no stress about paying bills, working like a maniac or worrying about the future. All I had to figure out was how to get good grades, how to fight PMS and Zits, and be an awesome girlfriend and how to watch the Backstreet Boys in person (this, never happened in my teens. Not until my LATE 20s)
4 - WHICH CELEBRITY DO YOU GET MISTAKEN FOR?
