11 Random Facts about Me

2.  I am sensitive to noise and hate background noises like fans and motors.
3.  I like weird shows like Hoarders and Sister Wives, but you already knew that.
4.  I was called a "pillsbury doughgirl" by a boy in 6th grade.  Scarred me for life (or just the rest of middle school).
5.  I learn the lyrics to songs really easily, including rap.
6.  I really dislike it when people give "cold" first impressions, just smile!

9.  I used to want to be an astronaut.  Like, for real.  I went to space camp in 5th grade and I would order freeze dried food to eat and wear my space suits (I had pink and blue) around the house.  I also recall copying portions of the encyclopedia regarding space exploration into my space notebook.  This is not a joke.
10.  I always open the microwave before it is actually done.  I'm not sure what this means, maybe I'm just impatient?

I stop the microwave before it is finished too! I think I don't like the beep. I want to be the one to say, "Yes, my food is done", not some beep!

I read this the other day and meant to comment! I was in the young astronauts club in fifth grade!! I was obsessed! We went to the Kennedy Space station and watched the stars at night from the rooftop of a museum. Annnnd I stop the microwave early, too. I really dislike the three beeps for some reason. :)
