Day 19: Oh the places you’ll go…(if you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?)

I want to live everywhere. I think my heart is just a wanderer. I’m never satisfied where I’m at, I’m always wanting to be somewhere else. I think that’s why I’m meant to be on tour.

If we’re staying in the USA, I think one day I’d like to live in a beach house somewhere off the coast of North Carolina (preferably not too far from Wilmington). It’s my favorite place. It’s not quite the south, but people seem to have that kind of disposition. They drink sweet tea, and eat a lot of fried chicken. It has a southern charm, and I love that. I think ultimately I’d be okay anywhere that has that southern kind of charm. Or in Montana.

I’d live to have houses all of the world, but mostly in these three countries:

Italy, but not in one of the big cities, definitely in a little Italian village. Somewhere with cute cobblestone sidewalks, and with family-owned shoppes and restaurants.

Australia/New Zealand. It’s beautiful down under. I hear the locals are super friendly (not to mention super attractive and have the coolest accents). I can definitely see myself spending a year or so there just working at a surf shack.

Iceland. The best kept secret of the world. This is seriously my favorite island ever. The people are kind and lovely, and it basically runs on it’s own time schedule. They are peaceful, they live longer, and it has some beautiful scenery: waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, black sand beaches, the Blue Lagoon, geysers. There is a for real chance that I will move there one day.

Day 1: A Silhouette of Me (20 Random Facts)

1. I am undeserving of grace, but have a God who is merciful enough to extend it to me anyway.

2. I want to pack up and move to Iceland one day.

3. Boybands are my favorite genre of music.

4. I love my family more than anything. If you don’t have a close-knit family, you missed out.

5. As a general rule, I hate people. They are rude, self-centered and have a false sense of entitlement (not everyone, but as far as stereotyping a species goes…).

6. I’m a concert junkie. I will go see basically any band live just because I love the feel of live shows. I love feeling the baseline and drum beat in my ribcage. (There was a trending topic on twitter the other day, #PeopleIHaveSeenLive, and I tallied up mine, and I came to 50 different acts, and those were just the ones I could remember, and not counting artists I’ve seen multiple times).

7. I made it 22 years never having done a load of laundry. Up until I moved to California 6 months ago I had never touched a washer. I had to google how to do laundry.

8. I love television. Well, sort of. I love TV on DVD. I love movies, but I think I like TV better because I get to know the characters more and I get to become attached to them.

9. I love superheroes. Not the comic books (I’m not entirely sure I’ve ever even a comic book in real life), I’m not cool enough for that, but I do love superhero movies (and TV shows…or at least Smallville).

10. I like to consider myself a pretty decent photographer, but I hate to edit pictures. I’m a firm believer in just taking a good picture that needs little to no editing.

11. I would wear dresses everyday if I could.

12. Football is my favorite sport. No contest. In high school I wanted to play, but I wasn’t allowed, so I settled for taking pictures from the sidelines every Friday night. Every Sunday I will sit in front of my television for hours watching any game. I’m a hardcore Chiefs fan (and if you know anything at all about football, you know how rough that is). I hate the Broncos, Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and his Cowboys, and the Steelers, but I’m pretty easy going about everyone else. Some part of me wants to coach high school football at some point in my life, but I’m thinking that’s probably a long shot.

13. I love to bake.

14. I’m an introvert who sometimes masquerades as an extrovert (but only when I have to).

15. I can’t wait to get married. Not that I have any prospects at the moment (please, no one misinterpret that one), but I’m really looking forward to it. But I have a stipulation. Call me vain, but if I can’t get married while I’m young and pretty (and my bridal party is hott) then I don’t want to at all. Let’s get a move on, clocks ticking, boys.

16. Harry Potter will always be one of my best friends.

17. The Lion King is my comfort movie. I watch it when I’m sad, or when I’m scared. I watch it when I’m content with life, or when I can’t fall asleep at night. It basically has permanent residency in my Blu-Ray player.

18. My favorite number is three.

19. I am always hot. I’m pretty sure my body temperature runs at least 2 degrees hotter than what’s natural (ask anyone who has ever been in close quarters with me). I am basically a space heater. It’s miserable.

20. Polar bears are the best animal ever. And if science ever figures out a way to genetically alter them so that they only grow as big as a dog, I will have one. I may get one anyway.
