Day 23: eight things you didn't know about me

i found this to  be a fairly random list since i am usually pretty open and honest.
i don't have a lot of secrets.
but, without further ado, here is the list:
  1. i have a blood clotting disorder called Factor V Leiden.  basically it means that my blood can forget to stop clotting once it has started.  so after having Isla, i had to give myself injections of Fragmin in my stomach. not fun.
  2. i secretly love 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'.  this is a terrible indulgence of mine.  i used to love 'The Hills' when it was still on tv.  i must have a need to have a really over the top, ridiculous reality show in my life at all times.
  3. while i was pregnant i didn't have a lot of cravings, but i did weirdly crave pop music.  i rarely listen to the radio in the car, but while i was prego i pretty much was hitting the scan button just hoping to hear some Ke$ha, or Britney or Lady Gaga (and may i point out that i never listened to these ladies before!)
  4. i pierced my own nose. twice.  yup, one summer at camp i decided i wanted a pierced nose and i found a cork and a needle and away i went.  then i took it out and apparently the next summer wanted one again, so another needle into the nose it was.
  5. in grade 12 i shaved my head.  it was something i always wanted to do. my youth pastor Rob did it. i loved it so much and kept it shorn for about 8 months, but my mom said that she would not pay for my Grad dress if i kept it shaved. (seems weird that a girl with a shaved head would care, but oh how i loved my grad dress!!)
  6. i do not have a strong desire to travel the world. it always seems to me that most people want to travel all over the place, but i have always felt like i would like to see a bit more of Canada or the some parts of the UK, but other than that... meh.  even in high school i didn't have the travel Europe bug or anything.
  7. i used to be a journaling fiend.  I have milk crates filled with journals from grade 11 to about 3rd year university. i'm not sure how or when i stopped journaling regularly, but for some reason it seemed to slow down. i still have a journal that i take notes in on Sunday morning, or write some prayers or scriptures in, but not my day to day business.
  8. i have a guitar that i don't really know how to play. i got it for Christmas in grade 10 and i never had any lessons. i taught myself a few songs, but never really stuck with it. but it still goes with me every time i move!
