Always, Sometimes, Never

Amber did this last week over on her blog so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I always...
  • drive with my headlights on - even when it's completely bright outside.
  • end every conversation with my parents by saying 'I love you'.
  • let the phone ring twice before answering it. I think my mom learned to do this at some business seminar she went to like 15 years ago and it has stuck with me ever since.
  • put on my make-up before blow drying my hair.
  • tear up when a bride is walking down the aisle, even if I don't know the bride that well.

I sometimes...

  • wonder if certain people who ride my bus missed out on the lesson in kindergarten about waiting your turn in line. There are people who will get dropped off as the bus is arriving and will hop right onto the bus even though there is a line of people. It infuriates me!!
  • wonder what my life would be like now if I had gone to college outside of my home state of North Dakota.
  • walk in and out of Barnes & Noble without buying a book. But not very often.
  • fantasize about living overseas, possibly in France. I could never do it, though - I would miss my family too much.
  • get in these intense cleaning moods where I clean out & re-organize closets/fridges/etc. I usually get in these moods when I am worrying about something or going through a break-up.

I never...

  • stretch before running. I'm too impatient and am always so anxious to get started on my run.
  • drink milk directly out of the carton, even though I live alone. I find that repulsive.
  • talk to the person sitting next to me on airplane rides. I immediately put my headphones on and give off the 'don't talk to me' vibe. I would probably change this policy if a cute guy ever sat next to me but that never seems to happen!!
  • enjoy driving. I don't dream of having a nice car, I dream of having a chauffeur!
  • dreamed that I would run a marathon; it always seemed like an unattainable goal that only really athletic people could achieve.

"enjoy driving. I don't dream of having a nice car, I dream of having a chauffeur"

Hahahahahahaha. That's hilarious. I've never even THOUGHT of that even though driving isn't my favourite thing either. Sometimes I zone out and enjoy it but other times it makes me impatient and I just want to be there already!!

I never stretch before running either, only after, and even then I don't stretch very much!

I get in intense cleaning modes sometimes too. I just want things ORGANIZED and clean. We did a completely reorganization of our apartment a few weekends ago and I feel SO much better now that we got rid of all the junk (even though it's slowly starting to pile up again)!

I'm right with you on the never drinking milk out of the carton thing! I live alone too, but I still couldn't ever imagine doing it. I also do the 2-ring thing...or depending who is on the other end, I may let it ring a little longer (yah for caller id!)

Awesome list! I'm thinking of doing it too, but I don't know if I could come up with facts as interesting as yours and Amber's! :)

I also get into cleaning modes, but not that often...I wish they were more frequent lol!

I love this list! I agree with so many of them!

The one about walking out of Barnes & Noble without a book is almost impossible for me too! (Or visiting Amazon.com--their Prime shipping makes it almost quicker for me to get books from them than finally decide to schlep to B&N.)

LOVE this entire post. I could have written a ton of the "I always," that you shared with us.

That's so funny that other girls also put their make-up on before doing their hair. I thought I was alone in that one =)

I also am bad about stretching/running.
