11 Questions Tag + The Nail Polish Tag + 'I Love Your Blog' Award! (WARNING: Longest Post Ever!))

Hello, all! This is me taking a break from my Spanish homework. :v

Nail Reflections, I Bleed PolishSimply Beauty., & Claws Up all tagged me with this and I've finally gotten around to doing it. Sorry so laaate. >.<

So for this I'm supposed to tell y'all 11 more things about myself (if my brain allows it), answer the questions my fellow bloggers asked, ask 11 NEW questions (again, if my brain allows it), and then tag 11 people. Let us see if I succeed.

Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
Go to their page and tell them you have linked her/him.
No tag backs.
No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

11 Things About Myself
1. To this day, I cannot let ANY part of my bedding (comforter, sheets, etc.) hang off the side of my bed while I'm sleeping. This probably stemmed from some childhood fear that it made me more easily accessible to monsters and such when they were hanging off my bed? Who. Knows. 

2. I refuse to eat the curvy part of a candy cane. 

3. I have never broken a bone or had any other major injuries.

4. I have three tattoos: hello kitty on my left ankle (I'm a dedicated fan, obvi), a hummingbird and flower on my right lower back, and the Chinese symbol for love on the top of my right foot (real original, I know... this was my 18 year old tattoo. :P). I also have nine piercings: eight in my ears and a teeny stud in my nose. I'd like to have more of each eventually. 

5. My entrance to the world of nail blogging was through Scrangie. Her's was the first blog I ever saw/followed/loved. :L

(This is already getting difficult...)

6. I graduate college with my BS degree in Geology in December and I cannot freaking wait. It will have taken me 5.5 years to do so, but that's beside the point. ;)

7. 'Friends' is my all time favorite TV show. I own the complete series and the boyfriend and I had an epic Friends-a-thon and watched them all over the course of about a year. I still watch it every night that it's on TV before bed, as well. Never gets old. <3

8. I am currently watching the complete series of 'Boy Meets World' and am a little over halfway through it (it's my nail painting show ;)). I forgot how srsly amazing that show is.

9. I am slowly but surely learning how to do hula hoop tricks. I have several friends who are tremendously good at it and teach me things from time to time. It's freaking hard, though!

10. I haz no tonsils.

11. If I see a nail polish display in a store that isn't orgnaized properly (polishes aren't in the correct place, etc.) I will reorganize it.
