I really liked Ashlan's post about secrets, so here are some of mine.
Disclaimer: no earth shattering things will be revealed (mostly because I don't have any earth shattering secrets), just some random things you may not know about me.

I am deathly afraid of grasshoppers. Yes, I am perfectly aware that this is a completely irrational fear, but I am afraid nonetheless. Do not mock me. :P

I tend to keep what I think to myself, not because I don't want people to hear my opinions or anything, but because it takes me a while to decide what I think about things. I'm too easily swayed by both sides and can usually see why both sides could be correct.

I don't think people take me seriously sometimes, but I don't mind it so much so long as I'm able to prove their initial assumptions about me wrong.

I wonder sometimes what life would have been like if I'd done that Center Stage jazz team with Becky years and years ago instead of doing ballroom.

I hate eggs and milk. I even tried eating an omelet a couple weeks ago. I really did try it, and you know what, I didn't like it. Too eggy, too nasty of a texture.

I'm a first pancake. Maybe I'll get over it. (tehe Jody and Alyssa)

I don't really know what to do with myself. I know I posted that cynical post about how there are some things I will never be able to do, but for the most part I still believe I can do anything. And therefore, I can do nothing because I have a million possibilities.

I keep waiting for someone in the chemistry department to say, "Just kidding! You really aren't that good at this! You just keep getting all these things because your dad works here!" Now that I've typed that out it sounds completely ridiculous, but sometimes that's how I feel.

I don't read as much as I used to and it scares me a little. Like I'm not the same person I was a year ago, which I guess is true, you can't go through your freshman year of college and not change a little, but still...why don't I read all the time?

I tend to only learn enough about things to get by in casual conversations (that's as much as I really know about politics, fooled you all, huh?) and ace a test. I can feel myself losing momentum academically, and I hate it.

I take fast showers. I can soap down, shampoo and condition my hair, and shave my legs in about 3 song lengths (approximately nine minutes).

I used to do weird things like picture sidewalk sections as blocks and then picture myself jumping every other one. I used to climb stairs two at a time so that it would even out and the last step I'd be on the next floor instead of having to take one extra step.

Eh, that's enough for now. Thanks for venturing into the abysses (did not know that was actually a word, but it's not underlined in red, so I guess it is) of my mind. :)
