100 Things About Me

Okay, now I'm going to post 100 things about me. You may already know some of them, though and some of them might be weird, random things.

Wow, this is going to be hard; coming up with 100 things about me. But, I'm sure I can do it. :)

1. I have blonde haird

2. I have blue eyes

3. I am 5 ft, 5 inches tall

4. I have long, skinny fingers

5. I wear a size 9 in shoes (yes, I have long feet!). Is there anyone else who wears 9's?

6. I have a purity ring that I wear on my ring finger. My purity ring is merely a symbol, a reminder to me of my promise between me, my dad, my Heavenly Father and my future husband that I will stay pure until I am married.

7. I am a Christian who goes to a Baptist church (I know you already knew that, it's in my profile).

8. I am 15 years old

9. I do not have my permit but I really, really want it!!

10. I live in a family of six (including me), my mom, my dad, Narthea, Esara and Caldirwen (all three sisters and no, those are NOT their real names).

11. I used to bite my nails, but I do not anymore

12. I had a baby blanket of mine that I slept with until I was 12. That's why I put this on the 12th thing about me. :) My blanket's "name" was Blankey [how original!] and it had Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Pluto on it when they were babies. :) I'll show you a picture of it sometime.

13. I have a Cedar Hope Chest. A Hope Chest is a chest [no kiddin] that you put things in that you would like to have in your future home. Like, silverware, blankets, baby clothes, trinkets and such handed down from family, etc. :)

14. I love the beach! It's so pretty and peaceful

15. I wanted to get married on the beach, but I don't know if that would be a big deal or not. My husband might not like the beach, so that may not work out. :P

16. I do not like tomatoes! yuck!

17. I do not like mushrooms, either

18. my favorite meal is chicken strips, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls and salad. Can you tell I live in the country?

19. I favorite drink is water. I know, that might sound weird, but my parents are trying to eat healthy (as well as us girls) and we don't drink anything but water. :)

20. my favorite movie is The Fellowship of The Ring, but you already knew that.

21. I would like to have 3 kids. I've grown up with 3 sisters, so it just seems right to have 3 kids.

22. I've always wanted boys more than girls, I don't know why. I would like to have at least one girl, but the rest boys. :)

23. I DO NOT think Orlando Bloom is cute, let's just get that out of the way!

24. I also DO NOT think Viggo Mortenson is cute.

25. I used to want to be an actress. I mean, I still would like to act, but the "acting world" is so un-godly and satan-like that I wouldn't want to get "sucked into" something like that.

26. I always wanted to act in Little House On the Prairie (I was little and didn't know that it wasn't still being filmed anymore).

27. I took acting lessons twice. It was fun, but I totally froze up on one of my skits and I was so embarrassed that I never wanted to go back. It was bad!

28. I almost played the Tin man in a play, but two of the actors dropped out so we couldn't go forward with it. :(

29. When I was 8 I got a hamster. Actually, I might have been 7. Hm, I can't remember. I named her Teddy-bear because she was very fat and she was soft as a teddy-bear.

30. I once had a guinea [bird] that I named Crusty Chicken-Hump (don't ask).

31. When I was 9, my mom and her friends brought home a bird. I don't remember what kind it was, but we named it Spanolia.

32. I am running out of things to say!!!!!!!!!!!!!

33. I love swings! They're so much fun! I always liked my hair blowing in the wind and feeling weightless. I told myself that I would make sure my kids had swings because I didn't grow up with swings, just used them at parks and stuff.

34. Swimming is my fav sport! I like tennis too, but I've never actually played it. I mean, I've played it at parks and at friends house's, but I was actually doing swimming as a sport for 1 whole year!

35. I was in gymnastics when I was 5, 9 and 10.

36. I played basketball when I was 10-11. It was soo much fun! I never got any baskets, because I was always the shortest on my team, but it was still fun.

37. my favorite animal is a black panther.

38. I do not like the movie Ratatouille. Everyone liked it but I didn't.

39. I do not like the Bee movie. So not funny!

40. I do not like the movie Robots. Too much crude humor.

41. I do not like any of the Shrek movies. Boring and too much crude humor.

42. my favorite Narnia movie is the first one. The second one was okay, but Susan is showing a lot of skin and I hate how they made Caspian and Susan like each other.

43. I do not have a brother, but I always wanted one.

44. Since my parents do not have a son, I was always my dad's "helper". I helped him build our barn, our barb-wire fence, our deck and our porch.

45. I would much rather be outside than inside.

46. I do not like doing laundry. I know, I will be doing a lot of that when I have my own house, but it's so difficult to remember to keep doing it throughout the day. I keep forgetting. :/

47. Howard Shore is my fav composer, although Harry Gregson-Williams is also a good composer.

48. my fav artists are, Switchfoot, Barlow Girl, Kari Jobe and Joy Lippard.

49. I have a black lab named Ty, but you already knew that.

50. I'm half way there!!!!

51. I do not like William Mosely or Ben Barnes (Peter and Prince Caspian). A lot of girls think they're cute, but I don't.

52. I have a cell phone, but I do not ever use it, only when I need to contact my friends and my parents. I do not have unlimited texting and I don't really want it. :)

53. I am what you might call, a tech-nerd. I'm not an expert with technology or anything, but I'm the only one if the family that knows how to get the Internet working after we've had a bad storm. :P

54. I am running out of things to say, again! Do you know I started thing thing an hour ago?

55. I cannot stand rats.

56. Snakes don't bother me as long as they don't bite me.

57. Spiders don't bother me either. I play with Daddy Long Legs.

58. Ants gross me out! I know, that might sound weird after I said spiders and snakes don't, but if you've ever seen a bunch of ants piled on top of each other in a puddle of water, you'd feel the same way, trust me!

59. I don't really care for cats. I'm not saying I don't like them, they're just not my fav house pet.

60. I love horses!

61. I don't like carrots.

62. Sugar gliders scare me. :) My friend's sugar glider attacked me, so I'm a little freaked out by then, now.

63. My fav dessert is Red Devils Food Cake. Yummy!

64. I have many different laughs. I have a low chuckle that I use when something is not funny. Then I have my regular laugh that is just normal. Then I have my "huh" sort of laugh that I use when I didn't hear what the person said. :)

65. I can scream really loudly when I'm scared. Trust me! You could hear it all the way from the other side of the US.

66. I busted the skin above my eye open when I was 8. It freaked me out because there was a lot of blood, but I don't remember any pain. I fell in the shower, that's how it happened.

67. I have never really wanted to be a princess. So many girls are like, "I wish I was a real princess in a big castle", but I'm happy just being a pauper.

68. I have my name engraved on the cover of my Bible.

69. My bible is dark and light brown.

70. I'm almost to 100!!!!

71. My favorite color is light blue.

72. My favorite name for a boy is Shane. I just LOVE that name! I also like Leland and Conner, but Shane is my fav.

73. My favorite girl name is Ashlynn Rae (very pretty!). I also like Kathy, Jillian and Larissa.

74. I love to sing! (that's another one you already knew).

75. My favorite kind of meat is chicken. I like beef, too, but chicken is my fav. :)

76. My fav veggies are corn and potatoes.

77. I have recently been learning about World War II and I am hooked! Even though it's a sad subject, it's very enticing.

78. I would like to be a missionary's wife. I don't know, it would just be nice to live my life serving the Lord and preaching the Gospel to lost people.

79. I want to live on a farm with lots of animals!

80. I have 20 more to go!!!

81. My bedroom does not have a ceiling fan, so I have a fan that sets on my floor that I HAVE to use every night or I can't sleep. :)

82. I am running out of things to say, once again!


83. Okay, I'm back and replenished.

84. I am watching Narnia Prince Caspian right now with Esara and Caldirwen.

85. My fav weapon is a bow and arrow. Guns are okay, but archery is fun!

86. My fav book of the Old Testament is Esther.

87. My fav book of the New Testament is Matthew. I also like Ephesians, Hebrews and Revelations.

88. I do not like Obama.

89. I love learning about the Jewish religion. It's very, very interesting!

90. 10 more to go!!!

91. I have moved 2 times.

92. I lived in 3 houses in one year. We moved out of our old house in the beginning of '06. Then moved in with my mom's parents and lived there for 5 months. Then we moved to this house we're at now.

93. I love to fish! I can't explain it, but it's so much fun!

94. I love riding on boats! Not big ones, the little ones that go fast!

95. My first Birthday Sleepover was when I was 13. All the other times I would just have a big party with lots of kids.

96. My birthday is at the end of Summer, so all my birthdays had something to do with water.

97. I would much rather have cool weather, than hot.

98. Spring is my fav season.

99. I learned how to swim when I was 5.

100. Okay, this is my last one... I am not very fond of candles. They make me sick. I get a stopped-up nose, sore throat and head ache whenever one is lit. I'm a lot like my mom's dad. :)

Well, I'm finally done!!! It was fun though. Thanks, Emily for giving me that idea.

His Handmaidens said...

We sound very similar... I just found your blog from Nahla's world...I love Lord of the Rings, I have three sisters, I will be fifteen In less than a week, and I love that one of your favorite names is Jillian...Because that's my name, spelled exactly the same! Oh, and I have blonde hair and blue eyes, too!

Eldarwen Failariel said...

It's so exciting when I find someone who's like me! :) Well, you have a beautiful name, Jillian! Wow, you have blonde hair and blue eyes, too? That's so cool! Thank you for visiting my blog, Jillian! I hope you come again. :)

~Eldarwen Failariel~

His Handmaidens said...

Thanks for visiting our blog.Me and my two older sisters usually wear skirts pretty regularly, but we are allowed to wear pants. My younger sister is a tomboy, so she usually wears pants. It's amazing how stylish they can be! is that you in your profile picture or some one else? I love it!

Nahla said...

Whoa, now that I read it, about 70 out of 100 things are excactly what I would have put! That means I'm like Jillian, too! Wow.

Ashley said...

Awesome!! :D
You sound a lot like me :)
I'll probably do thi for my 100th post.. it was fun to read!

Eldarwen Failariel said...

~His Handmaidens~
Yes, we're allowed to wear pants, also, we just usually wear skirts. If we need to wear pants we can. Well, that's not me in the pic, but the funny thing is (and this is why I picked it) I look JUST LIKE THAT. Cool, right? Thanks for visiting again!

Wow, four of us are alike! That's so cool. :)

Yes, you should do this, it's fun; and hard. :) Oh my, now five of us are alike! I'm getting dizzy (jk). I'm glad you enjoyed reading it!

~Eldarwen Failariel~

***Emily*** said...

Awhile back I think I heard you scream... LOL! I enjoyed reading the 100 things about you! Happy 101st post!

Evergreena said...

It was fun to read these! I'll probably do something like this for my 100th post, too. But that's kinda far away...

Eldarwen Failariel said...

Haha, very funny! :D Thank you... for everything!

Thanks. You should do it! Like I told Ashley, it was very fun, but it's challenging, too.

You're welcome! I love your blog and your button is soooooooooo beautiful! LOVE IT!

♥Possum Princess♥ said...

Wow! That must have taken ages! :) It was interesting reading about you! I sure couldn't be patient enough to do that! ;)
P.S thanks for following my blog! I'm following yours now too! =)

Elránia said...

That was very interesting! I've always wanted to be an actress. I'm trying out for the lead at the school play!


His Handmaidens said...

I already knew was a lot like Nahla, since we have known each other personally since we were 5 or 6, we live close to each other, and see each other at least twice a week.
It is so cool about your profile picture! I like you a lot already!
Is there a specific way you pronounce you elvish name, or does it sound like it looks? If you get what I mean.

Eldarwen Failariel said...

~Possum Princess~
It took me 2 hours, so I guess you could say it took me ages. I didn't think it would take that long, maybe an hour or so, but after the first hour (I was only on 42) I realized this could be a while. :) Thanks for following my blog, Possum Princess!

Oh really? Acting is very fun, but not when you mess up. :/ Well, I hope you get the lead role! I'm sure you'd do great at it! :)

~His Handmaidens~
That's so cool that you and Nahla are good friends! I have a friend that I've known since we were 3 and 5 (I was 5, she was 3), but a few years ago, we moved so now she and I live 2 hours away from each other. We still have e-mail, though. Well, Eldarwen sounds like it's spelled but Failariel is a little tricky. I've tried many different ways, but this is the one that I think sounds the best: fail-air-e-el. :)

Thank you all for the comments! They're so much fun to read!

~Eldarwen Failariel~

Merilwen said...

Just wanted to comment on a couple of things.;)

23. I think we are going to HAVE to give you some glasses, girl.

24. Well, maybe not.:) I personally agree with you on this one. I can't stand how some girls talk about how "beautiful" he is. *shivers*


Eldarwen Failariel said...

23. ROFL :D I knew someone would say something like that. A lot of girls like him.

24. I'm so glad someone agrees with me on this one!

WOW!! I know about the screaming part, I have a brother that loves to scare and tickle me. =D So sometimes they call me Fay Wray. =D

Isirian said...

I feel like I know you now haahaa
You're like me.
I'm a missionary kid, so I thought it was cool when you said you want to be a missionaries wife, trust me it's really fun!

Eldarwen Failariel said...

Good, I'm not alone! LOL :)

That's really cool! Yes, the thing that brings me the most pleasure is spreading the Gospel to other people. I go witnessing with people from our Church a lot. :)
