Random Facts About Me :]

I did this for some thing on Facebook and I not everyone has facebook so I thought I'd put it on here too. Just some random facts about myself. Enjoy! :]

1. I love making sound FX. (Examples: GAHHH! Psh! Bleh! GRRR! Argg!)
2. I try to write in my journal every day and I love going back and reading my old journals although they are sometimes ridiculously embarrassing.
3. I love buying school supplies, especially notebooks...I don't really know why though 'cause I'm not a huge fan of school or anything.
4. I love making lists (packing lists, grocery shopping lists, things to do, goals, etc.)
5. I talk to both of my parents about pretty much everything and I love them sooo much! It's hard to be away and not get to talk to them everyday. Lucky for me technology is amazing and I get to call/email/web chat with them quite often. I think my parents are two of the wisest people I know.
6. I write everything in my agenda but rarely ever look at it when I'm doing homework and stuff. I guess just writing it down helps me remember.
7. My name is Emma Olmstead and I am addicted to Spider Solitaire. (It is distracting me as I write this)
8. I love YouTube and could watch it for a really long time but I never find cool videos myself...other people have to tell me about them.
9. I can touch my tongue to my elbow and to my nose. (No, touching your tongue to your elbow is NOT impossible)
10. My all time favorite color is red. I have four pairs of red shoes, a pair of red rain boots, a pair of red slippers, at least four red sweatshirts, two red bags and I don't even know how many red shirts.
11. I am 5 foot and almost ½ of an inch tall. My 15 year old sister is taller than me and so is my almost 13 year old brother. And my 7 year old sister is about the same size I was in 5th grade! Once everyone in my family is grown up I am pretty sure I will be the shortest. And no one knows how I got to be so short because none of my relatives are nearly as short as far as I know.
12. I love getting dressed up and doing my hair all fancy (when it's long enough) but I have never really learned how to put on makeup all fancy. But I'm not a big fan of makeup so it's all good.
13. I have eight brothers and two sisters and I love all of them more than I could ever explain. I am the fourth child but first girl so I am a middle child as well as an oldest in some ways.
14. Losing someone I love is one of my biggest fears although I do know that I will be with them again.
15. I love reading but I have a hard time finding good books so I rely on other people (mostly my mom and sister) to suggest good books to me.
16. Shopping is one of my favorite things to do...when I find things for super good deals.
17. I love getting compliments on my clothes and being able to tell people how cheap I got the shirt/shoes/pants/whatever for. I think I like being able to say that more than the fact that someone complimented me. I hate when I didn't get something for a good deal because then I don't know what to say. And I almost always know the exact amount something cost me (not including tax).
18. I wish I had stayed in gymnastics after sixth grade but I am also grateful that I was able to try lots of different things over the years (diving, dance, choir, piano, sewing, cooking, pole vaulting, running, public speaking, swimming, etc.).
19. Doing backflips on trampolines is one of my favorite things to do so when my parents bought a trampoline the week after I moved away from home I was bit upset.
20. My little sister, Helena, is my best friend in the entire world. I don't know what I would do without her and I am so lucky to get along with her so well. It's hard being away and not knowing about everything that is going on in her life and being able to tell her all about what is going on in mine.
21. My sister and I shared all of our clothes when we were living together. Before I moved out we had to do a week test-run to see if we would be able to survive with only half of our wardrobe. Luckily we did!
22. I crashed a motorcycle when I was 12 or 13 and now have a fear of riding them. So I have a goal to get over that fear.
23. More than anything else I want to be a mom when I grow up.
24. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I love it.
25. I love to dance but I'm not all that great at it. My sister and I dance to pretty much everything and now I dance with my roommates (especially to the Evolution of Dance on You Tube). Interpretive dances to EFY music are the best. I would love to learn to ballroom dance but I like other kinds of dancing as well (jazz, ballet, hip hop, etc.).

  1. I love Emma! And her crazy noises, and hand-stand skills, and wardrobe that she lets me raid! Haha :)
