My 25 things about me

25 things about me:
  1. My name, Deva, comes from a combination of my grandmothers’ names… one was Dee and the other was Eva.
  2. I’m obsessed with music and can name just about any song within the first couple of notes.
  3. I am a native Floridian.
  4. My heritage is German-Irish (for the most part). When I was little I used to tell people I was part Native American (or Indian, as a 6 year old would say) and that was the reason I had a large forehead.
  5. I’m very blonde… my eyelashes would be blonde if it weren’t for mascara.
  6. I’m legally blind in my left eye and really can’t see crap out of it. It is not correctable and I occasionally wear glasses (at work or when reading or when tired) just to save myself from migraines.
  7. I have really bad depth perception due to the above mentioned in #6 and have never been adept at sports involving balls of any kind.
  8. I have to have at least a cup of coffee every day. If not, I would need ibuprofen as backup.
  9. I’m missing my sesamoid in my left foot. Had that little turkey taken out after it stopped working.
  10. I love to write. I especially enjoy writing lyrical and rhyming poems… but, I’m pretty private and usually keep them to myself.
  11. I secretly hope to write a novel or book of some kind one-day.
  12. I laughed when Wilson fell off the man-made raft in the movie Cast Away. It was a ball people!
  13. I actually do not like watching movies.
  14. I’ve broken only one bone, my collarbone when I was 7 due to "roughhousing" with my brother and sister.
  15. I’m a nurse… I’ve cried with a few of my patients and/ or their families.
  16. I like to paint and draw… more so draw with pastels…
  17. I’m convinced that time travel is practical. Seriously… it’s not that farfetched if you understand time and light. (Geeze… don’t get me started). Einstein is my hero.
  18. When I get super hungry… I become inept, irrational and unable to make decisions… at that point someone just needs to give me a sandwich.
  19. I have a full-blown phobia of spiders. I have nearly jumped out of a moving car because of a spider.
  20. I get anxiety going up escalators and over large suspension bridges. Actually, I may just turn around if I have to go over one of those bridges.
  21. I used to sing in a church choir. I like to sing…
  22. I never studied for math until calculus.
  23. I was planning on going to the Airforce Academy after high school…
  24. I hate raisons and pickles. Raisons are NOT nature’s fruit and pickles are just gross.
  25. I prefer nerds over jocks. Big jock types are a big turnoff.
