This is a really cool thing that Hayley was doing over at her blog Fish Flakes (she said I could use it too), and I think it's a fun way to learn some random facts about me, your blog author. Feel free to use this on your blog too!
A. Age: Fifteen- I turn sixteen in February!
B. Bed size: Twin, and happy with it. I actually don't really like sleeping in large beds.
C. Chore that you hate: I really do not like loading and unloading the dishwasher, but especially loading it.
D. Dogs: I am allergic to dogs, so I can't have any. I'm even allergic to hypoallergenic dogs- how about that? It's OK though because I don't like them that much anyway. I've known some nice dogs but when I was little I got chased by this horrid little dog at the beach and it pretty much scarred me for life.
E. Essential start to your day: A hot shower. if I don't get my shower, I am not happy. At all. At camp though, an early morning swim in the lake works too :)
F. Favorite Color: I like purples and grays and blacks best, and I like some greens but not all of them.
G. Gold or Silver? Definitely silver. I only wear silver jewelry, I do NOT wear gold. I just don't like it as much. Plus, well, my trumpet is plated with pure silver so....that's just awesome.
H. Height: 5'0''. I'm a shorty :)
I. Instruments you play: Long list time.... trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, trombone, clarinet, regular percussion, mallet/vibes percussion, piano, and mandolin.
J. Job title: High school sophomore.....plus I babysit.
K. Kids: I really like to work with them so that's a big reason why I want to be a teacher, and I figure that I'll have some of my own someday too :)
L. Live: Maine, in the USA!
M. Mother's name: On blogger my mom goes by her initials - bwk.
N. Nicknames: My brother likes to annoy me to no end and call me Sal.... Oliva calls me Salamander, and I'm also nicknamed Shortie because I am literally the shortest person in our entire 86 member band.
O. Overnight hospital stays: I've never had to stay the whole night at the hospital, but I was brought in at like one or two (actually I'm not quite sure because I was soooo out out it) in the morning once and stayed until like four-ish because of a giant asthma attack I had at camp. Not fun.
P. Pet peeves: I hate it when people talk when I talk and don't listen to what I'm trying to say. Grr.
Q. Quote from a
R. Right or Left handed: Right handed, but I can do most things competently with my left as well.
S. Siblings: One younger brother who is in 7th grade this year.
T. Time you wake up: On school days I am up between 5:30 and 5:40 in the morning - at least that's when my very jazzy alarm goes off and I usually get out of bed. Usually... On Saturdays and Sunday's I get up between seven and eight.
U. Underwear?: Yes, I wear it. Duh.....
V. Vegetable you hate: I like and will eat pretty much all vegetables, there are only two that I really hate which are eggplant and cauliflower, and I'm pretty sure that eggplant is a fruit... :/
W. What makes you run late? : Well, I hate running late so so much that I'm usually extremely early to everything, but if I'm late to something it's usually because I had a rehearsal or a doctor's appointment.
X. X-rays you've had: Um, in 6th grade I had x-rays done on my shoulder to see if I had fractured a growth plate, in 8th grade I had to have two done on my foot to check if my toe was actually broken (it was), and last year I had a couple of chest x-rays done, one was routine for my asthma doctor, and one because they thought I had fractured a rib.
Y. Yummy food that you make: I can make lots of yummy food, but I have a VERY yummy secret recipe for potato pancakes that my family raves about.
Z. Zoo Animal: I enjoy the crocodiles and the alligators :)
