Tagged

I got tagged by Starrla and Gorgeous a few days ago but since I'm awesome, it takes me a minute to blog.

Rules:
1.You must post 11 random things yourself.

2.Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
3.Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.

4.Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.

Let's get started!

11 Random Facts About Me:

1. I talk out loud to myself when I'm alone....as if I may be talking to another person. It is quite disturbing (even to me)

2. I am SUPER afraid of having feminine odor. I check myself 2-3x a day and if I'm with my dude, fuhgetaboudit!

3. I spend a lot of time in my own head.

4. I grew up being very picky about food. I've tried to rectify that in my adulthood but that hasn't happened yet.

5. I feel as though I'm socially awkward half of the time.

6. Only Wynsters knows about this personal blog. All my other friends (who see me on a consistent basis)  are clueless. I would love to keep it that way.

7. I am a very messy person in the house but my outer appearance is always meticulously put together. I'm desperately trying to change that. It is an uphill struggle.

8. I can sit in silence for hours whether by myself or with other people. This seems to make others very nervous when they're around me for some reason. This fact has been magnified by the fact that at work, there is always loud music playing and people talking ALL DAY. I crave silence when I'm at home.

9. I'm obsessed with Europe.

10. I would love the opportunity to be a TV anchor.

11. I always wonder how I'm being perceived by other people but I would never really ask.

Questions from Starrla
1. What inspires you?

a. What inspires me to be a makeup artist? Beauty. I see it in everything I look at and wish to create it in everything I do. b. What inspires me to keep keeping on? Fear of failure. I don't ever want to fail at anything and so that pushes me to persevere.

2. What is your earliest childhood memory?
My mom's funeral. I was 3 years old and I remember the burgundy carpet of the funeral home. Tons of people sitting down. Someone was wearing a blue jacquard shirt. My mom was in her casket. She was very dark-skinned with a black Jehri curl. I remember seeing angels around her singing. (It might have been the cheesy 80's funeral home background mural or real angels...what do I know?)

My favorite thing to cook is spaghetti with sweet sausage and spinach. Meal in 20 minutes. My favorite thing to eat is fried chicken with macaroni and cheese and collard greens. (so Negro!)

8. If you had to lose one of your five senses, which one would it be?
We think we only have 5 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sense )  we have more than that...so I'm going to cheat and say temperature. If I didn't feel cold or hot that would be cool....but if I HAD to lose of the main 5, I would say touch.
