I'm afraid of rock climbing.

As I was driving home from work yesterday and blaring the Twilight soundtrack I was pretty glad I was by myself because seriously if someone had been with me, I might have been a little embarrassed. And then I realized, there are lots of things I should be embarrassed about but I'm really not any more (with the exception of my thirteenth birthday, but that's a whole other post). I think writing this blog and putting my whole life out there has definitely made me a lot less insecure and by darnit I'm going to put even more out there, all the things that I should be embarrassed about:
  • I am a horrendous parallel parker, horrendous I say.

  • I believed in Santa until I was twelve.

  • I routinely play pop music and musical soundtracks while I'm at work.

  • I saw Titanic in theaters five times.

  • When I listen to the Twilight soundtrack I think of the scenes in the movie that correspond to the songs.

  • I put on Barbie rock shows until I was thirteen.

  • I belch like a guy.

  • I play the Sims for hours and don't even notice.

  • I think Keanu Reeves is awesome. And Speed is my favorite movie.

  • I went through a whole bright colors, crazy socks and middle part during my teenage years.

  • I spend a ridiculous amount of time on a computer, even when I'm not at work.

  • I both burned and undercooked chicken at the same time.

  • I take pictures like this:


The list could proably keep on going for a while but I think that's enough for now, haha. Anything you're no longer embarrassed about (or you're at least telling yourself you're not, haha)?




happy thursday!

Hahaha, I still can't parallel park. Did it for my test, and never did it again! It's just so embarrassing for me to even try!

Mandy said...

This is a fun list and post.

Something I'm not embarassed about but should be --

I own the Hannah Montana movie soundtrack.

Matt said...

belching is def a quality I look for in a woman.

Chrissy said...

Katelin you are one open lady.. that is why I love your posts... spontaneity should be your middle name... as far as embarassing? well my bf said I tooted in my sleep!. not a loud one, he said it was like a 'splat'... wtf? ok, there its out in public now... sheesh... hey belching is tooting, just the other end.. lol

so, i definitely saw titanic 6 times in theatres, and one of those times i convinced my dad to take me, who (luckily) fell asleep right before the nude drawing scene. but then he woke up freaked out because of the water splashing once the ship started sinking, he thought he was in the water. it was funny.

sims/any computer game/video game for hours with little to no regret - check

belches worthy of awards (i even beat out my boyfriend most times) - check

i love the movie minority report with tom cruise, but i absolutely loathe tom cruise. i don't like the movie because of him, i like the plot and storyline (why? no clue). there is not a single other movie i can think of that i like with tom cruise in it other than tropic thunder. so check on that.

wait, didn't we all go through a middle part stage? i rocked it until high school before i decided i wanted friends...

also, at the end of elementary school, pretty sure i painted my bedroom a light foresty green with flecks of gold and then bordered my walls with wolf wallpaper. yeah, i was one of THOSE kids. i collected wolf stuff, pictures on my walls, figurines i would play with in the sandbox, i even pretended i was a wolf for a long time right up to kindergarten and would crawl around the house on my hands and knees howling. my parents called me mowgli.

i've got loads more, but i think i've embarrassed myself enough.

nory said...

Um,I can relate to several of these things! Like the parallel parking situation. I failed that portion of my driving test.

rs27 said...

I failed parallel parking but I'm great at it now.

Where are the parallel parking championships?

San said...

ha, i can top that... i saw titanic at the movie theater 8 times! insane, i know.

Sayward said...

This is hilarious! Everyone seems to have an embarasing list tucked away somewhere...

Ali said...

I LOVE Lifetime movies.

And The Sims (though I don't own it anymore, sad!).

And am a bit of an old lady sometimes.

And that's just the beginning!

Julie Q said...

i totally love the sims! except one time i played for like 2 hours, but i couldn't get out of the tutorial part and my sim kept pissing herself and jumping up and down and crying!!! boo hooo

La Petite Chic said...

Oh hon, I don't even attempt to parallel park anymore! I will gladly park farther away to avoid it :)

Angela said...

I got an award for perfect attendance my freshman year of high school.

Hey Nory, u should move to Cali, they don't even test u to see if u can parallel park!. lol...and Katelin if u need help, I can teach ya.

randomhappiness said...

Haha I really love this blog! I'll tell you mine; if I call someone and get through to their anwser phone I just 'go mental'. I have no idea why I get so thrown but once I hear that beep my sanity/dignity just goes right out of the window. And I'm stone cold sober so have no excuse!
I cringe at some of those voice messages I have left these perfectly innocent people but I pretend I don't! Never underestimate the powers of denial ;D
.x.x.x.

Andrea said...

This is so great. I'm totally stealing this idea. And burning and undercooking chicken at the same time is really easy, oddly enough.

reederscorner said...

I love that you put on Barbie rock show concerts! I did too! :)

Auburn Kat said...

HAHA! I loved this list!

I also burp...especially when I'm around my sister for some reason..

Jennie said...

I'm a 5-time Titanic theatre-watcher, too! And if I catch it on tv, yep, we're watchin' it again!

...and I still believe in Santa 'cause I don't my mommy won't buy me anything ever again... and I'm 35!! :)

tabithablogs said...

Ha - I love the last one: "I take pictures like this."

I think we would definitely be friends if we knew each other IRL. You're hilarious.

Deutlich said...

Now I wanna play Sims!

erinwalker said...

Didn't everyone go through the middle part and bright socks stage?
I also spend a crazy amount of time on the computer.
I am also a terrible parallel parker and believed in Santa much longer than most kids!

cavy said...

nice list. mine would include the fact that i know all the words to all the songs from the high school musical trilogy... and i enjoy the hannah montana franchise..

Bayjb said...

OKay Speed was awesome and Keanu was smoking hot in it. Meow. And I saw Titanic 3 times. Close.

Playful Professional said...

I am supposed to be embarrassed for doing all of these things too? oops.

alexa - cleveland's a plum said...

i think we should be friends cause i could copy 75% of this list for my own.

Jen said...

Let's see...I'm not embarrassed to admit that I saw Twilight in theaters 3 times. Well, maybe a little since it wasn't anywhere near as good as Titanic (which I also saw 3 times). Oh and I totally imagine the scenes from the movie when blasting the soundtrack. My kids groan every time I put it on.

sarah marie p said...

Yay for Barbie rock shows! I think I was still playing with Barbies when I was 13 too! Awesome!

And I'm the worst parallel parker of all time. I avoid it at all costs! Oh, and I belch like a guy too! ;) Heee. My burps are WAYYYY better than john's! heee.

Lily said...

- I am an AWESOME parallel parker when NO ONE is watching. If I have someone in the car, I probably won't even attempt it.

- RENT. RENT makes a lot of appearances on my iPod at work.

- Re: Titanic. I did too.

- I can't really belch. When I do - accidentally - it startles me, I love it, and I announce it to everyone and want high-fives.

- I HATE KEANU REEVES.

- I'm still wearing bright colors and crazy socks...

- I <3 you.

Ginger said...

I have finally managed to learn how to parallel park! Woo! I still don't like to have people in the car with me when I do it though.

And I watched Titanic in the theater three times. I thought I was the only one!

mbannan said...

you're also afraid of scuba diving.....even though you won't hesitate to jump out of a frickin airplane

Julie said...

I love this list.

I have to admit that I used to play the Sims for hours and hours and hours.

You've actually got me in the mood to play again!

I'll let you know how it goes.

Larissa said...

I'm a big klutz - I routinely trip, fall, and break things.

I also watched the entire season of Tila Tequila.

Angela Noelle said...

I should be totally embarrassed about my taste in music, and yet, I am not. I adore cheesy pop!
