Twenty Five Facts

This whole “25 facts thing” is trending among bloggers so I decided to hop right on board.  I mean you want to know the girl behind the blog right?!

25 Facts about Kelsey.

  1.   .  This girl is addicted to chocolate…I repeat, addicted.
    2.     There is something in me that yearns for the next adventure
    3.     There is something innately woven in me to have the desire to change my hair color every single month.  Does this happen, not always. Is there always somewhat of a yearning for a fun new do, yes. I have had pink, purple, blond, red, brown all streaked through this mane at different points in time.
    4.     Yo hablo espanol, et un petit francais. (The question is, can you read that?)
    5.     I day dream all the time, but rarely do I have whole (not fragmented) dreams at night.
    6.    I tend to surround myself with people and could be identified as an extreme extrovert, but at the same time this little introvert needs alone time to recharge.
    7.     I have been told that whoever I end up with must appreciate my singing in public- and no I do not have a pretty voice but yes I am a singer =].
    8.     I am an only child.
    9.     I absolutely love to read…but go through seasons.  Right now I’m in a reading drought. Any good book suggestions?
    10.  I have been to Peru twice, once for a week-long medical mission trip & the second time for a 6-week stint in a village on the Napo River (tributary of the Amazon).
    11.  I simply can not keep my room from looking like a tornado of clothes hit it.
    12.  I would like to live in various countries over the course of my lifetime.
    13. I greatly enjoy building things and constructed my kitchen table, which is made out of a gorgeous, white cellar door with my handy mom.  Independent woman right here!
    14.  I achieved one of my big goals this year and got my very first post grad job as a case worker.
    15.  I have terrible luck driving.  10 speeding tickets...yeah.
    16.  Baking is therapeutic and working out is not.
    17. I maybe should go ahead and patent the phrases: “Friend time is the best time…” “Bed time is the best time…” “Insert-your-own-best-time-here….” Did I mention these phrases are best sung to a made up tune.
    18. I once went to a job interview where there was a live opossum running around the office-not kidding.
    19. It is inevitable that I will chew my straw and eat the ice cubes out of any given drink.
    20. I spent a summer studying abroad in Capetown, South Africa.
    21.  I hate to admit this, drum roll please….but I like television.  This being said, I have decided to limit it because I am pretty sure it zaps my creativity.  Seriously.
    22. I am currently teaching myself graphic design.
    23. I love to listen to sermons while driving in my car.
    24. I LOVE to dance.  Do I have rhythm? Nope. Do I love to dance anyways? Yep. I plan to spend this summer on the dance floor at the six weddings I already have on the calendar.
    25. I have a relationship with the Living God.  I love God with my whole being and know that He feels quite the same about me! Actually, He feels quite the same about you as well and I would love to share more with you!

  1. Contagious laugh! So many interesting facts! Dance, bakery, languages (yes, I can read it, I'm portuguese - spanish is easy for us, not the opposite though - and I learned english and french). Kisses, dear!

  6. I can't speak Spanish or French, but I did understand that. I studied French at school for three years and despite getting more than 90% on every test, I seem to have left my French knowledge behind when I left.

    How's the graphic design coming along?

  7. Wow you are quite the traveller! I would love to travel to lots of different places overseas- what an opportunity you got to study abroad for summer! I like to dance too even though I can't :P It is also such a pleasure to have God in our lives :)

  8. I like your peplum striped shirt.. nice smile.


  9. wow, how do you teach yourself graphic design? i always try to play around with photoshop and try to figure out how certain things work, but it takes me a lot of time to really get into the tools of graphic design, although i really enjoy it. i wish u good luck though! :)))

    and i like your photo, it's such a bright, natural smile :))

    1. Connie, LOVE your blog by the way. So glad you found mine. Ah graphic design. I really am such an amateur. It takes me hours to figure out one simple thing but I have managed to make some prints and do all of my blog by myself. Still that's not much. I have a simple free program called gimp but hope to get photo shop one day soon! And THANK you for your kind words! Hope you have a great day!
