Friend Making Monday: Did I Do That?

Did I Do That?

Speaking of "did I do that?"  Somehow I didn't schedule a Friend Making Monday for last Monday.  Oops.

Here’s how it works: you copy the questions, answer them and post them to your own blog.  Then you come back here, and in the comments, post the link to your blog post with your answers to this week’s questions.  If you don’t have a blog of your own, just post your answers in the comments.
1. What is something that you would never, ever want to do?
bungee jumping

2. What is something you’ve done and regret?
there have been a few things, but nothing major...they're mostly minor things, so I really can't think of one off the top of my head.  I tend to just move on once I've remedied the situation.  Mostly, I would just say dating a few of my exes were really regretful situations, however, if I hadn't gone through those experiences, I wouldn't be the strong and independent woman I am right I don't actually regret them...more of I just wish it hadn't been necessary for me to go through that in order to get where I am today.

3. What is something that you’ve done that you are very proud of?
I am exceedingly proud of myself for sticking with the intensive training for and then running and completing my first full marathon.  I don’t always follow through with things I start, so it is a big thing that I stuck with this all the way through.

4. What was something you did as a child that landed you in the hospital?
riding my bicycle with my brother one day, he was faster than me and I was trying to catch up.  I was zooming down this little hill near our house, not paying attention to anything else when a truck that was speeding (in a neighborhood the speed limit was 25, he admitted to going 35 and also not paying attention) crossed right in front of me and I hit it on the front corner panel just inches behind the wheel well.  I had a bone bruise on my shin where the pedal hit me and some road rash.  Other than that I was fine, but a neighbor saw the accident and called 911 and I rode to the hospital in the ambulance. 

5. What is something that you have always wanted to do?
be rich.  Seriously.  I mean, I do want to work for a living.  I’m not someone that can just not work for any length of time.  I do alright for a couple weeks then I start to get bored.  But yes, I would love to have a ridiculously successful business that made me independently wealthy so I could buy whatever I want, go wherever I want, buy a huge house with lots of land and have lots of cats. 

6. If you didn’t have a choice and HAD to choose between bungee jumping and skydiving, which would you choose and why?
skydiving…because with bungee jumping you fall multiple times as the cord causes you to bounce and with skydiving you only fall once.  Plus, you can really enjoy the view as you skydive, so it’s more than just an adrenaline rush.

7. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
something that involves a lot of paperwork.  Haha.  I’m weird, I know, but I really love paperwork.

8. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I had a few jobs that I wanted to do when I grew up.  I wanted to be a veterinary doctor until I found out it involved blood and potential gore.  I wanted to be a lawyer.  I wanted to be a high school English teacher.  I wanted to be a mechanic (this I actually did when I was in the Army).  And, finally I wanted to be a cop.

9. Do you do your own handy work around the house?  Give an example of something you’ve fixed or made.
yes.  I’ve installed a pull-up bar in my bedroom doorway.  I’ve refurbished my dresser and desk that my great-grandmother willed to me when she passed away.

10. What do you do that makes you the happiest?
running.  Also, snuggling with my kitties.
