You may not know...

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." -Albert Einstein

I think I did this in my old blog, either way here it goes.

~ I am 1 of 5 girls. I'm the middle child.

~ I found out recently my name is Turkish
~ I have an irrational fear of the ocean. I get very anxious when I am near the ocean.
~ I love the mountains and would live near the mountains if I could.
~ Coffee is one of my favorite things. I like trying new blends, different roasts.
~ I love to cook
~ Growing up, I wanted to be an astronaut or a lawyer. I still do.
~ I love to dance
~ I hate mushrooms, peanut butter, and pickles.
~ I'm terrified of snakes.
~If money was not an issue, I would be a "professional" student. I love to learn.
~ I'm shy, stubborn, and bossy.
~ I want to move back to Panama one day.
~ I lived in Costa Rica for 2 yrs
~ I believe actions speak louder than words.
~ I have no tolerance for racism or bigotry
~ I don't care for people who believe their way is the only way. What works for someone else may not work for me. We were meant to be different.
~ I voted on my first election in 2000. I wish more people understood how important they are to the democracy in this country.
~ I'm a practicing Catholic, (even if I disagree with the church on some issues. ;) ), married to a Southern Baptist, and daughter of a Buddhist. Needless to say, I have a lot of respect for those who worship in a different way.

~ I like to debate on different issues (religion, politics, etc) in a civilized manner. Hence the reason I don't discuss religion or politics with people I don't know very well. I respect other people's opinions and expect the same. Unfortunately, when it comes to some topics, people can't agree to disagree.
~ I have "discovered" wheat beer and love it.

Don't you just love how I go from talking about politics/religion to beer? Randomness is my middle name.

Glad you have a new blog. I might do the same. Did you ever print your other blog?

Not yet. I need to figure out how to print it in consecutive pages. I wonder if it can be put on a PDF file? I'm definitely printing it though.
