I am not particularly fond of super long posts on my blog, so I have created a spot for my tags, after they have gotten some "air time".
I do, however, appreciate tags.

1. If I was a boy, my name would have been Phineas after both of my parents favorite book, 
A Separate Peace. It's one of my favs too, and I wouldn't have minded.

2. I have kicked a hole in my bedroom wall. 
I have anger management issues.

3. I know a little bit of a lot of languages, 
including French, German, Spanish, Italian,  & Latin mostly and the tiniest bit of Chinese and Polish. 
At random intervals, I will use expressions and sentences from various languages just because I know what I'm saying and no one else does. It annoys people though. 
Le petite chien manges des grande fleurs. Things like that.

4. I secretly love every bruise and scar I have. They say "Hey Jillian, you survived"

5. I use my neighbors wifi. With permission, of course. But I still feel sneaky about it.

6. The real reason I quit swimming was because 
I was so skinny that every time I'd swim for longer than half an hour, 
I'd get so so cold that I felt like I was dying afterward.

7. I've had sleeping disorders my whole life.

8. I get annoyed when people ask if my mother and I are sisters.

9. I have the best friend {that I'm not related to} in the whole world. Her name is Emma Jane, she is completely awesome, and absolutely beautiful.
10. Whenever I suggest we go somewhere, or do something, people always assume that there is either a really great skatepark, or a super nice coffee shop nearby. 4 out of 5 times, they would be correct in that assumption.

11. My role models have always been the girls that get songs written about them. Think: Meet Virginia, Hey Julie, Hey there Delilah. 

12. I'm the kind of girl whose is so outrageously crazy that everyone smiles and and shakes their heads about. Like once I was outside swinging in the pouring rain and singing my lungs out and the boy from next door 
 [insert fake apathetic air] stood at the window grinning. 

13. I wear clothes that aren't exactly "me" because they make my Mom happy.

14. I take artistic photographs of friends and family and secretly hope they'll pick them as their Facebook photos.
I'm annoying, I know.

15.  I have the sort of face that everyone thinks they know. 

16. I had to say "I'm sorry, I don't work here" for the first time when I was 13, and several times since.

17. I have a jar of coins and dollar bills on my desk that is called "My adventure fund".

18.  I have a huge desire to have a job working in a coffee shop while I am still in highschool, but I know that is regarded as a menial job to my parents, and that they want me to focus on school because I'm most likely to end up in the medical field. I still love the idea though.

19. I come from a huge baseball obsessed family, and during the season, there is not a family meal that goes by that baseball is not mentioned once. Even though I think I block baseball out, I still have subconsciously stored most every baseball player in the top 200's first name. I have an extreme name remembering capabilities. Lord forbid I ever forget the difference between Matt Holiday and Roy Halladay.

20. A lot of people get intimidated by me, because they think I think I'm so much smarter than them, but that's really not the case at all.

This took a really long time. Tagging you, if you're up for it.

The small dog ate the big flowers. Busted:) We took French for a few years. We're not brilliant or anything, though. Which saddens me, I would so love to rant in French:) Paper Bird

Jillian said...
Me too PB. I'd love to absolutely raging angry and spew forth a ton of French. Haha, I wasn't saying I was a genius in any of these languages. In fact, most of the things I say are completely irrelevant to anything that matters. która godzina? Thanks Katie, it was very fun to write.
