Me, Myself & I Link Up Party

I'm linking up again with:

I am so excited for this month's questions! Ready?

 1) When you're feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?

It really depends on how down I am. Sometimes I really just need to be alone, blow off some steam and get my mind off things. I usually do that by surfing the internet, reading or just watching tv. I'll also turn on funny shows to help, but I have been known to watch a depressing Lifetime movie to make myself feel better. No one has it as bad as those Lifetime movies!

2)  If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?

I have always thought I belonged in a different time period. I'm so torn between a few time periods in history. One would definitely be early 1900s. I've always wanted to dress just like Kate Winslet in Titanic.

I would have also loved to live in the 1930s and 1940s. I know we were in the middle of WWII, but it is a time period I've always been interested in. Being able to see a country come together to defeat a dictator would be amazing. I probably would have joined the Army Nurse Corps and traveled the world (that is because I've seen Pearl Harbor and In Love and War too many times).

Finally, even though I think I'd have a hard time being married off to some older royal (because of course I'd be the daughter of a duke or something), I would have loved to live in the Elizabethan Era. If not for the fashion alone, for the art and literature! Plus I'd have a British accent and that would be awesome.

3)  What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?

I don't really remember to be honest with you. Even when I was little, I was always something very popular. I was never unique. However, my mom didn't let me buy a prepackaged costume every year so sometimes I had to make do with what I could find around my house. I remember putting together a hippie and a rockstar costume together all on my own. Thank goodness I have no idea where those pictures are right now.

4)  Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?

I don't eat beans. I love chili and Mexican food, but I hate beans. My mom used to make me a separate pot of chili sans beans.

I can't snap with either hand. 

I read magazines from the back to the front.

I love scary movies, haunted houses and all things scary, but I worry it will give me nightmares.

I can touch my tongue to my nose.

5)  What would you tell your 16-year-old self?

Work harder in school!! I didn't apply myself in high school. I was a total social butterfly. I didn't start really caring about school until college.

I didn't get into too much trouble in high school so I'll let my 16 year old self have her fun. There of course were a few questionable boys that I wish I would have stayed away from. However, they shall remain nameless.
