Five Random Facts

Long time no post! So I thought I might just do this one :)

Fact 1. I ALWAYS have to put on my socks before jeans. Mainly because I hate the feeling of how the stitching of the jeans (At where they sinch at the end) can tickle your feet and... ughhh *shudders*. I guess its just another phobia of mine. Which leads me to fact #2.

Fact 2. I ALWAYS have to wash my feet before I go to bed. I dont know why. Its just, I cant stand the fact of dirty feet all up in my covers. I especially hate it when my friends come over and they wearing sandal or flats and then they put their feet on my bed. It just grosses me out, but I never say anything about it, because, well, thats just rude. But I immediatley wash my sheets when they leave because I can stand the fact my sheets have been touched with dirty feet. I guess its a part of my OCD. I dont mind if theyre wearing socks though, oddly...

Fact 3. I ALWAYS email the author of a book when finishing his/her novel. Its like, a little habbit of mine, I guess you could call it. I dont know, I guess I feel like I want their intention as a reader of my oppinion on their novel. Woahh, long sentence. Haha, but you'd be surprise of how many emails Ive recieved back. Just to name a few, Ive gotten replies from Loung Ung (International Best Seller of "First they Killed My Father"), Robin Palmer ("Cindy Ella") Sarah Zarr ("Sweet Hearts") Piper Banks ("Geek High") Elizabeth Scott ("Bloom") and many others I just cant name from the top of my head. Of course Ive gotten no reply from other authors, but thats okay. I cant even imagine how busy they are.

Fact 4. I cant STAND when people dont use capital letters properly. It just arghhhhh, it aggrevates me and makes me thiink youre either too lazy to fix your grammar problems or your dont care. Which is fine by all means, its only my oppinion, but it just... I dont know. Stresses me out I guess. I swear this is a part of my OCD though. Like, for instance, when someone makes a title that goes something likes this: what makes your day.
OH MY GOODNESS. I might as well yell. Ok, maybe not THAT dramatic, but you get my point. The CORRECT way (i know you all know this, so please dont think Im giving you a grammar lesson!) is: What Makes Your Day?"
Im just weird. Really weird. And I blame it on my OCD, but hey, thats something we all have to deal with. And dont even get me started on straight lines.

Fact 5. I can rewatch a movie twenty times. No joke. IF theres a movie thats SOOOO incredibly good to a point where the movie is constantly on mind 24/7 (in other words, Im obsessing over a movie) I tend to hunt that movie down online and watch it 20 whopping times. Okay, maybe 21. Ahhhhh, just kidding, well, not really because I probably CAN, but realistically (Since I still have school work and stuff) Ill watch the movie maybe 8 times in a day, then the next day Ill watch it another 5 times, and you get my point. But this movie has to be SUPERRR good to a point where its all Im talking and thinking about. Ill list all the movies that have made me go to this point.
A Cinderella Story- I had it on DVD and litterally remembered ALL the words from that movie. I know, I know, but hey, it was a good movie.
13 going on 30- Ahhh, such good memories <3 I loved Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Gardner together.
What a Girl Wants- One of my closest child hood friends spent litterally DAYS rewatching this super cute and funny movie. Its sooo good, and I can rewatch it another fifty times if I wanted. Amanda Bynes was GREAT in that movie, and Oliver James is just... sighhhhh. I dont even have the word. Im speechless, 'nuff said.
Pride and Prejudice- I remember watching this in 7th or 8th grade and never understood it but remember liking it. Just recently watched it in English and HOLY CROSHNOTS!! I could not get the movie out of my head ALL DAY LONG. I fell so in love with Mr. Darcy- it wasnt even funny. Whenever he and Liz had an interaction my stomached would litterally squeeze into a tight ball and all these nerves and butterflies would just jostle together and send my heart beating off the roof! It was THAT strong. I dont have the movie, so when I went home I found it online and watched it a whopping 13 times that week. It's one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. Truly is.
The Magic of Ordinary Days- ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVES! I say its at tie with Pride and Prejudice. This isnt that well known, but its SOOOO good. I cant even beguin to tell you. I watched it in February on CBS during the Hallmark Hall of Fame period where'd they show a movie every Saturday for the month of Feb. and I wasnt really expecting anything that good to come one. BOY WAS I WRONG! This movie was seriously amazing. Maybe you may not think so, but I sure did. It was exactlyyy my kind of movie. What its about is a girl name Livy who gets preggers and her dad sends her off to a small town in coronado to get married to Ray Singleton who's kind of awkward but superrr adorable and you see through out the movie how their relationship progress and ahhhh, so good. Its based in the 1940's btw. I can rewatch that movie over and over again. Another good one from Hallmark is the movie "Front of the Class". Dont get me started on that one. ;)
