10 Random Things About Me (Thanks Bagel)

So I received my first "blog tag" and the subject is 10 Random Things About Me.  So here goes:

10. I secretly like "gross" foods that girly-girls usually hate:  bologna, hot dogs, and box mac-and-cheese (Note:  I do know that this isn't REAL mac-and-cheese.  It is its own food group.  Real mac-and-cheese is heaven-sent and magnificent, especially if made by Christopher).

9. I procrastinate/jack around most of the time in law school, and then cram really hard in the last 2 weeks before exams.  It's just the way I operate.  I don't get fired up until I'm under pressure.  

8. I'm an ENFP, which apparently means I:  am interested in everything (pretty much true), learn best when several methods are used (very true), need constant change and new things in my life (also very true), love being in love (soooo true), have trouble separating work and leisure time (um, yup), and can be flaky (dammit, that's true).  In short, I am enthusiastic about things until they don't go my way or I get bored.  I think it's best to just call a spade a spade here and admit the truth in that.

7. I would love to be a law professor some day, but I a) don't have the credentials, and b) don't care for academia.  Perhaps as an adjunct teaching law and lit or some type of social justice law?

6. If I had the money, I would not work and just volunteer and travel.  I'd love to combine the two and go on volunteer vacations.  Basically, I wish my life was one big ASB trip.  A major goal in my life is to join the Peace Corps at some point.

5. I am decent at almost everything but not really good at any one thing in particular.  This fact completely depresses me and is a major insecurity for me.

4. I'm vain.  I wish that wasn't true, but I am.  I hate going out of the house looking bad.  I would give almost anything to be one of those naturally beautiful women who can just throw on jeans and t-shirt, put their hair in a ponytail, wear no make-up, and look gorgeous.  Reference point:  my friends Claire & Lucie, Jennifer Garner, and Natalie Portman.

3.  I HATE food/chewing noises.  If I can hear you chewing gum, swallowing a drink, etc., I will instantly be irritated with you.  I get this from my Dad, for sure.

2. I want to write a novel someday.  I've started and stopped several times, probably due to #8 above.

1.  I am happier at this point in my life than I ever have been before.  It's taken 25 years, but I love myself and love my life.  :) 

Now I have to "tag" 5 other people.  Here goes:

Lucie, you will love this!
Heather, of course you're getting tagged!  And I'm dying to know your answers :)
Christopher, I expect to be rolling on the floor laughing
Victoria, take a study break and fill us in!
Claire, do it on facebook!
