+ Yes, my first post of 2009 (and first post in a while) is a meme. Been tagged by the loverly the girl riot(TM). So, I guess I should list off the 7 things about me then I get to tag 7 others. Woot. Funnily enough, I just did a 16 things about me (must be a popular time of the year for these lists). Better narrow it down to the most interesting or whatever.
#1) When I started college, I was a Marine Biology major. That lasted one semester. There were way to many crazy premed kids in my classes. I realized that I'd spend about 3 1/2 years in the same classes and after seeing fellow students have break downs in their *first semester*, I thought it was a good idea to explore other career paths. I took a variety of classes my second semester and really fell in love with advertising. It just seemed right. Take that however you will. ;)
#2) The list of places I'd like to visit before I die is massive. MASSIVE. Seriously. The world is such an awesome and interesting place, and I want to experience all of it. It sometimes makes me think I'd be better off as an flight attendant, but then I think again, and realize that if I had to spend all that time on an airplane, I'd go crazy (ok, crazier).
#3) I likes to cook and bake for people. I'll take any excuse I can to do some cookery. I'm not amazing at it, but I'm trying. For 2009, I want to try making my own breads.
#4) I'm weird about music. Often I have no idea who sings what song, but I know if I like it. Depending on my mood, I tend to listen to different things, from Mozart to Red Hot Chili Peppers to The Beatles. It makes for very interesting listening when I put my ipod on shuffle. ;)
#5) Some days, I find the Internet overwhelms me and I just want to hide in a corner.
#6) I grew up on both the West and East coasts.
#7) I have not traveled the Southern states at all. Last year (2008) was the first time I went to Florida, and beyond that, I have not been further south than D.C. or New Mexico.
And now to tag some folks.
