So, a few people have been asking me to do one of those tagged surveys that are floating around dA.
I've chosen the one I found in :devIardical:'s journal, as it has more questions then the others I've seen so far. So, this is for those who have been bugging me about doing this - you know who you are.
My comments are in the brackets ().
[x] I am shorter than 5'4. [By one inch!]
[x] I think I'm ugly sometimes. [More then sometimes, to be honest, but most people do.]
[x] I have many scars. [I have one under my nose from when I was about eight, and I have stretch marks from when I was pregnant with my daughter.]
[ ] I tan easily. [I wish!]
[x] I wish my hair was a different color. [Naturally my hair is brown with red highlights in the sun. I wish I had red hair to go with my Irish temper!]
[ ] I have friends who have never seen my natural hair color.
[ ] I have a tattoo. [Not yet, but only because I don't have the money or one drawn up for me to use.
[x] I am self-conscious about my appearance. [This is only half true. It depends on who I'm with.]
[ ]I have/I've had braces.
[x] I wear glasses. [I've been thinking about getting contacts, but after thirteen or fourteen years of wearing glasses, I think I look strange without them.]
[ ] I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. [Me willing have any type surgery that's not absolutely necessary? I don't think so!]
[x] I've been told I'm attractive by a complete stranger. [However, given that it happened in a bar...]
[ ] I have more than 2 piercing.
[ ] I have piercing in places besides my ears.
[x] I have freckles. [And I used to hate them when I was younger.]
[x] I hate my dad. [When I was about two and living in Abilene, TX, dad was inside watching tv. I was in the backyard playing with our puppies. Mom was at work and my big brother was at school. I got out of the yard - wearing nothing but dirt and a diaper - and was found on the other side of town.]
[ ] I hate my mom.
[x] I have a brother. [Two, actually - an older one whose almost thirty and my younger brother is twenty.]
 I have a sister.
[x] I've sworn at my parents. [Just my dad, though. Luckily my parents have been divorced for the past twelve or thirteen years.]
[ ] I've run away from home.
[x] I've been kicked out of the house. [Right after my daughter was born. Mom wouldn't let me go get a job, then she'd complain about me not having one, and then one day she kicked me out. We share a car, so me getting a job and being able to afford daycare - not an easy task.]
 My biological parents are together. [Thank god they're not! I would've run away.]

[x] I've fallen asleep at work/school. [I went to school for massage therapy the end of 2004 and beginning of 2005. Part of the training was getting massages - we had to practice technique, after all. I'd usually fall asleep five minutes into the massage. But I was getting up at 6:00 am five days a week, getting dropped off at my mom's, then going to school thirty-five minutes from where I'm living now, then going straight to work and usually working until one am or later, then having to drive an hour and forty-five minutes home. Yeah, I did that for five and a half months straight.]
[x] I almost always do my homework. [When I was in public school, I didn't. I'd forget, because the material usually bored me. When I started homeschooling, it got better. When I went to HTI for massage therapy, I remembered because I was interested.]
[x] I've missed a week or more of school. [I got suspended from elementary school - I think I was in fourth grade - because of something stupid, like mom thinking it wasn't time for my next round of shots or something. Turns out it was, and the school expelled me until I had them.]

 I failed more than 1 class last year.
 I've stolen something from my job.
[x] I've been fired. [When I was going to HTI, I was working at Kohl's. They changed my work schedule, wanting me to be there two hours before I got out of school. They knew this, and knew my schedule was the same five days a week, so I've always thought they did it on purpose.]
 I've slipped out an "lol" in a spoken conversation.
