Day 1: Introduce myself and 15 interesting facts

My name is Amy Woodruff. I am 23 years old and the luckiest girl in the world. I am number 5 of 6 children and I have two happily married parents. My family is incredibly awesome.... really they are. They've had my back my whole life, who could ask for a better support group?! I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon/LDS), because of this I know some of the most precious truths ever given to man. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, I know that I will be with my amazing family forever, and I know that God can make more with my life than I can. These are pretty much what encompass my life, my religion and my family. 

Now for the exciting part... 
15 interesting facts

  1. I have a phobia of eggs. 
  2. I am incredibly nerdy about many things... Star Wars, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, LOTR, Psych, Indiana Jones, Disney, pretty much anything worth being nerdy for. I must exclude a few things though. I don't enjoy Twilight or Star Trek. I just don't get them.
  3. To go along with the previous fact, about 80% of my vocabulary can be attributed to these nerdisms.
  4. I often giggle uncontrollably by merely thinking of funny situations. I love to laugh. I can't help it.
  5. I love to sing, and I do so whenever possible. 
  6. I also attempt different accents, and means of singing. I once tried to yodel, and ended up laughing so hard I had to pull over to the side of the road. Whether or not any of these attempts succeed, I have no idea.
  7. If ever put in a room with nothing to do, I often think up a situation of a natural disaster, and I would pick out random people who would play different parts. Example: who would be the leader, who would be the comic relief, who is only thinking of themselves, and who could single-handedly tear down a wall with their bare hands, basically things along those lines. It can be rather entertaining.
  8. I would live off Jamba Juice if I had the means to.
  9. I want to be a Disney Princess.
  10. I love dressing up, and I would wear glitter every day of my life if I could get away with it.
  11. I love doing spontaneous things. The only problem I face often is someone to do those spontaneous things with. 
  12. I feel truly blessed to have gorgeous eyes, amazing hair, cute lips, and not a big nose. Not that I don't like big noses, but I would look extremely funny with a big nose.
  13. I have only kept a straight face in a funny situation once in my whole life, with only my best friend/little sister to witness it. It is a very rare occasion. 
  14. I fully believe that math (aside from the basics) was created to aggrivate people, and if used in the right way could've easily been used as a cruel form of torture.
  15. I feel that there are few things that are more precious than a little girl with her daddy. And it's 10 points more precious if the little girl is wearing a tutu.

30 day challenge

I want to change the world! There, I said it. I have admitted my biggest ambition in life. But somehow, I always complicate this thought with the idea that I have to prove myself in some extravagant way, which leads to feeling overwhelmed and ultimately discourages me from even taking the first step. Well, I have things that need to be said, and dreams that need to be shared. So this is me taking the first step... a blog. This way I can share what's on my mind. And I am starting it out with an idea that has been plucked from my sister's blog. A 30 day challenge.... DUN Dun dun...
