30 Prompt Project: Prompt 1

My freshman year roomie, Lauren Lytle, started this daily project on her blog for the upcoming month and I so liked the idea that I thought I would do it too. But I probably won't make it fact, let's just be honest and admit that I won't do it everyday. So perhaps my goal will be to complete the list at some point this year. Yes? Yes.

Prompt 1: Five Facts Most People Don't Know About Me

1. I am terrified of making phone calls, even to people I know really well. The only people I call with no fear are my family members. Even then, I prefer texting. I have gotten better at making phone calls - I just got off the phone with my car dealership people, and i didn't freak out! I just hate doing it. I feels like I'm intruding when I make a call...

2. I haven't been kissed in over 4 years. I probably shouldn't tell people that, but I write it to help others afflicted by the same ailment to not feel badly about their condition. I don't kiss just anyone - I was even rather exclusively dating a guy for a few months and we never kissed. I obviously haven't caught the vision of how much fun kissing is, or perhaps I'd be doing it more. Or maybe I just haven't found a guy worthy of my skills. I have been told that I am a good kisser, so maybe that makes up for the lack of kissing. I don't need the practice ;)

3. When I was about 12 I decided I was going to be an actress when I grew up. I bought books on auditioning tactics, I took voice lessons, I joined a youth theater group, etc. One day I told my junior high school counselor what I wanted to do, and she told me that I would never make it and I needed to pick a "real" job to work towards. Even those sobering (and rather rude, I might add) words did not stop me from becoming an actress. I tried, but in the end it was my sudden shyness in high school that done me in. But I'm still trying! I'm taking voice again and I've taken some dance classes - musical stardom here I come!

4. I don't like choral music. I spent all of junior high and high school in advanced choirs. I loved it then - I loved performing an being part of a group, but I would never choose to listen to choral music of my own volition. I discovered this a couple of years ago when I took a University Chorale class (I was bored to tears most days) and last night as I attended the BYU Winter Choirfest. Just not my thang.

5. I don't like food. Or rather, perhaps I like food too much. I'm not sure which. I really dislike how everything that tastes good is bad for me, while everything healthy is rather bland. It's just one of those sad paradoxes that will never be resolved. I don't like cooking food, I don't like eating out, I just don't like it.

Well, now ya know! Woohoo!

Here's the whole list of prompts I will be following:

1. Five facts about me most people don't know
2. Five favorite things
3. Most embarrassing moment
