20 things.

I did a list like this (58 random facts about me) a long time ago, but I deleted it because some of the things on the list don't really apply anymore and rather than re numbering the whole list i'm just going to post a new one with some of the old and new facts. I continue the list in other posts until i reach 100 :)

1. I don't like onions but I like onion rings
2. I'm not a very 'outdoorsie' person. I mean i'll go do outdoorsie stuff if people who I love to spend time with go, but in general, it's not my thing
3. I love eating out more then eating at home
4. I have a crush on Taylor Lautner at the moment
5. I'm going to Utah State University (USU) in the fall and i'm really nervous and excited!
6. My favorite foods are (they are not healthy whatsoever): Pepperoni pizza, #7 from wendy's, and chicken tenders with honey mustard. Yes, I love simple american cooking. That's why I went to Crackle Barrel for my graduation dinner ha!
7. I've only been skiing once and I had a lot of fun! I want to learn more so i'm going to take a ski class at USU :)
8. After growing my hair out kind of long, I've realized that I like my hair better when its short, or at least medium length
9. The best summer vacation i've ever had has to be the summer I went to Fort Bragg, CA. I met (well I guess re-met since I don't remember them as a child) my cousins! They're like my best friends and we had the best time from running on the beach and watching the sunset, window shopping and Mendiceno(sp?), and hiking!
10. I love lazy rivers. Like the ones in water parks. I didn't realize this until I went to Typhoon Lagoon at the Walt Disney World Resort! It's so relaxing
11. I love bacon
12. I love sausage. I feel like a breakfast meal isn't complete without some kind of meat.
13. I love Pepsi and Coca-Cola
14. I don't really like driving. I just want my license just so I can say I have it. I don't like that society made it the norm to drive at 16. I feel so uncool when someone makes fun of the fact I don't have my license. It's not like I have a car anyways...
15. I don't really like reading... But if it's a good book that has me hooked from the beginning then i love it. If it's a boring book that an english teacher makes me read then makes me analyze the more than the author did, that's when I hate it.
16. I don't believe in running. I just don't see the point unless i'm being chased by a murderer, rapist, or like a bear or something. I've realized that i'm prone to running when I feel like i'm in danger, so an adrenaline rush should make me run fast enough anyways.
17. I don't really like pastries (ice cream included). I mean, i'll eat one if I have to (like at a birthday party) but that's all
18. I can tell when i'm un-liked. When I was in middle school, if I ever met a person that didn't really like me for no reason, i'd try so hard to try and be there friend. Now that i'm older I could care less. I know who my real friends are.
19. (This goes with 18) I don't force friendships. If you don't wanna be my friend, or if a friend of mine doesn't wanna be friends with another friend of mine, I won't get out of my way to make you a friend
20. I worry way too much. If I ever feel like something doesn't go right (like if I feel like I screwed something up) I over think what I did.

So this morning I was woken up differently than usual. Any other summer morning I would have slept in until about 11 (depending on how late I stayed up the night before). But no. Here I am, awake, at 6 in the morning because i'm a little freaked out. Why? There was an 3.7 magnitude earthquake at 5:04 a.m. Now for anyone who lives in places prone to earthquakes, you're probably like 'psh whatever i've been in a earthquake magnitude 5' , but for me it's a big deal because earthquakes don't really happen in Maryland, and it was the first earthquake i've ever felt or been in so I was really confused and freaked out.

You should have seen my face. The first thought that ran through my head was Hmmm that rumbling noise is probably thunder. Then I started freaking out when it lasted for more than a second. I got out of my bed and kind of sprinted over to my parent's room to see my mom up and freaking out. The second thought that ran through my mind was more like oh gosh it's the end of the world!, but when I looked out the window there were no raging fires or red sky... So I was really confused. I went back to bed, wide awake at this point, thinking about what that could have been. I figured it was an earthquake. Then my sister comes in my room asking me if I felt an earthquake. That settled it. I went to the one place that would give me the answers I needed. Facebook. And yup! that settled it! There were a bunch of statuses saying they felt shaking and people giving off links to news reports claiming there was an earthquake. My dad, who's lived in Cali his whole childhood, slept through the whole thing! He's probably used to this stuff, while the rest of his family is freaking out!

So there you go! I've lived through my first earthquake.... Man, I always thought i'd live in Cali when I got older, now i'm going to rethink things.

Luray Caverns!

My sister, dad, and I went to Luray Caverns today! It was a pretty awesome place too! When we got there I was wondering where the actual cavern was. There was a long line for the tickets and a even longer line for the cavern. I was confused because we went back into the same building we got tickets from... and through a little door that looked like it would lead down to a basement in a normal house. Well it was some basement because that's where the cave was!!

It was really pretty down there. And for some reason it made my hands feel really moisturized :) I kept saying to myself that I wish there was a cave in my basement.. It was like an underground city. So amazing!

There was a wishing fountain (more like random spot of deep water people threw money into). I didn't have anymore coins though :( but this random guy gave my sister a quarter, so we both wished on it and threw it in. I wonder if it works that way too. There was also this rock that people rub for good luck. We weren't supposed to touch the rocks because it stops the growth and the rocks only grow like an inch every 130 years or something... I touched the the rock that people would rub for luck anyways. Yep, i'm a rebel. I feel luckier though :) All and all it was a fun.

We also went through a hedge maze once we were out of the cavern. It was actually more confusing than I expected. Some of the signs were misleading too (don't worry we figured out the way on our own, we didn't cheat)

You should go! It's worth the trip!
