Someone you see yourself marrying or being with in the future.
Well this is easy. Obviously that would be Wayne. We’ve been dating over 2 years now and have known each other for about 3 years. He’s my best friend and we get along really well. My family and friends like him and he likes them. What more could I want!
Nicknames you have and why you have them.
Well most people call me Shannon considering that’s my name. My family calls me Shan, which is just a shorter version of my name (duh). Other than that, I don’t really have many nicknames other than being called “ginger” occasionally.
Plans/dreams/goals that you have:
1. Graduate with my Ed.S.
2. Get my undegraduate thesis published in an academic journal.
3. Possibly go on and get my doctorate.
4. Go to all 50 states.
5. Own pets :)
6. Visit each continent except for Antarctica I guess.
7. Swim competitively again.
8. Spend the rest of my life with my favorite person!
Someone you would want to switch lives with for a day and why.
This is a difficult question since no matter who you are, you have to deal with ups and downs. I first think that I would like to be president for a day, but then a whole country depends on you. Then, I think that maybe being someone rich and famous would be great, but then the next day I would no longer be rich and famous. So, I thnk the best option would be to switch with my dog. All he does is eat and sleep and that is something I would have no problem doing all day.
Things you’ve learned but still don’t understand:
I’ve learned many things and still don’t understand half of them. I guess that’s why I’ll be a student for the rest of my life.
Put your music collection on shuffle and list the first ten songs that play:
1. King of Anything - Sara Bareilles
2. Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
3. Imma Be - Black Eyed Peas
4. We R Who We R - Ke$ha
5. Bones - The Killers
6. I Know You Want Me - Pitbull
7. Hey Baby - Pitbull
8. Best I Ever Had - Drake
9. Just Dance - Lady Gaga
10. Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas
A family photo:
I don’t have a family picture on this computer :( but I have a younger brother and sister and a mommy and daddy. The End.
A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.
Honestly, I haven’t been hurt by anyone recently! Which I guess is a good thing!
How you found out about Tumblr and why you made one.
My little sister has a tumblr, so that made me aware that it does indeed exist. Then, my boyfriend told me that I should blog, so here I am, blogging!
What makes your school/college/workplace special?
Well, without the people in my classes I’m pretty sure I’d be a very sad graduate student. Instead, we can share in the misery together. yay!
Songs you listen to when you’re: merry, somber, dull, exhilarated, and vexed.
Merry: Plain White Ts - Rhythm of Love
Somber: Lean On Me
Dull: MGMT - Time To Pretend
Exhilarated: Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling
Vexed: The Killers - All These Things That I’ve Done
Something you’re proud of that was accomplished in the past few days:
I wrote the results section of my thesis! That’s pretty impressive I guess except for the fact that I need to now write the discussion and then format it. BOO but hey.. at least I’m on my way there!
Short term goals for this month, and why:
1. Finish my thesis because if I don’t, I won’t graduate and/or I’ll go insane.
2. Finish my poster presentation, for the very same above reasons.
3. See a movie because I get to see them for free, but haven’t gone in awhile.
4. Clean my apartment because it’s getting really messy due to the fact that I’ve been so busy.
5. Survive this semester, hopefully.
A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you:
I have a few people that have a big impact on me. Of course I don’t happen to have a picture of all of them together, but they’re my boyfriend, my mom and my little sister. Without them, I would probably be a completely different person than I am today.
Favorite superhero and why:
Well, this one is tough considering I cannot think of one female superhero who is not dressed provocatively and who actually has worthwhile powers. In fact, in order to help me in this search, I simply googled “female superheroes”. One of the very first links tells me I can look at the 21 Sexiest Female Superheroes. I don’t want sexy; I want awesome powers! What a sad, sad day in the world of superheroes.
A picture of somewhere you’ve been.
I went to In-N-Out Burger in California! That was probably one of the best trips I’ve ever been on and clearly I loved my burger.
So I missed Day 3 since I had work all day and then class at night, so here are Days 3 and 4
Day 3: A picture of you and your friends.
I don’t have any pictures of my friends on this computer since I’m at my parents’ house. Even if I did have access to my laptop, I don’t have a lot of pictures of myself and my friends (especially the newer ones), so this will have to remain blank for now. However, I swear I have friends and they are real and not imaginary. As far as I know anyway.
Day 4: A habit you wish you didn’t have.
I don’t crack my knuckles or chew my fingernails, so that’s out of the question. I do, on the other hand, have this compulsion to check whether my parking brake is up when I leave my car. This is only a recent habit as I once left my parking brake down by accident while I ran inside Dunkin Donuts and when I came out, it had rolled out of its parking spot. So now, I’m super paranoid about my car rolling away from me.
The meaning behind your Tumblr name:
Well, I like ties. I like the way they feel especially if they’re silky and I also like the way they look on people. If it were socially acceptable for women to wear ties, I would probably wear one every day.
A recent picture of you and fifteen random facts about yourself.
15 Random Facts:
1. I like ties.. hence the name of the blog.
2. I have 8 states to go to until I’ve gone to all 50.
3. My favorite color is green.

10. I have an aloe vera plant.

soo.. i decided to start a blog. in order to get me started, i decided to steal my sister’s idea of doing a 90 day challenge. this should be fun!
