Six Things...

Bertie tagged me, so here goes…

6 things you may not know about me:

1. I love show tunes. Seriously love. Probably most people know I love the theatre, but I also love the music. Mark just bought me the Rent and Hairspray soundtracks for my birthday…Rent has not left the CD player since; I’m obsessed with it (although Hairspray will get its turn soon enough, I’m sure!). Some other favs are Aida (also my favorite play) and Les Mis of course.

2. I am terrible at sports. This is likely due to the fact that I was never involved in any team sports growing up, and has bothered me a lot for the last few years. But I’m just not Sporty Spice.

3. I’ve lived more places than pretty much anyone else I know. Count em…California, Alabama, Florida, Utah, France, Connecticut, Hawaii and Georgia. That’s a lot, right?

4. I’m extremely frugal. Or you can call it cheap. I’m a big saver and hate spending money on things that won’t last. I think this partly comes from the fact that I love to move, and buying lots of material possessions ties you down. I try to fit most of what I love in a suitcase…makes it easier when saving for things I really want, which would typically be a vacation. Which leads to #5…

5. I love to travel. LOVE it. More than pretty much anything. I want to visit all 50 states (only like 10 more to go) and pretty much every major country. I’m dying to go to Greece, closely followed by Spain and Egypt. I really want to go back to the places I’ve been with Mark so he can see them; besides, it’s been way too long since I’ve seen the Tour Eiffel.

6. If I could go back in time, my college career is the main thing I’d do differently. I never had to work to get good grades, and basically skated through high school and college without putting in any effort, and I wish I had gone down a more challenging path. I wish I’d spent more time figuring out what I wanted to do with my life, instead of just playing and dating ½ of Provo.
