Haha, I hate the color pink too! Lighter shades are okay, but when there’s too much pink, I tend to want to turn things black & white.

I can generally do 8 hour trips before I get really bored and run out of things to do. Plane rides for me are usually 6 hours (to Connecticut), and car rides are usually 8 hours (to California). Those are the longest trips I’ve been on, besides traveling across the country from Maryland to Nevada, which took around 1 week. /dumb

Yeah, I generally buy cards before the season begins, because that’s when we really get good sales. 😛

A lot of people seem to grow out of biting fingernails, myself included. It’s probably better for us in the long run – less random scratches and cuts from sharp nails!

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog! I don’t think I know anyone who dislikes driving! I love being in the passenger seat on long trips especially!

Your smileys look like boobs. /please

I replied to your hosting email. 🙂

I don’t like the colour pink too much. I get picky with it, because some shades of pink are just absolutely horrid.

Congratulations on not biting your nails so much! I used to have that habit and I don’t know how I stopped but shortly after that I got another habit that developed into trichotillomania, which was not good. My friend had to put drops in his nails to make them taste bad so he’d stop. Ughhh it wasn’t good. But at least you’ve gotten somewhere. :3

I like polls too. Not voting/elections. Like online.

My friends find that driving is a chore and say I’m lucky that I don’t have my licence. I have driven but don’t have a full licence so I can’t really drive anywhere. They say it’s convenient but it gets boring. It looks it to me. XP

Hahaha I like the word ‘hello’, don’t get me wrong. It’s not bad.

I wanted different titles too. I think I kept “hello world” for my photoblog. But for my Heartdrops blog I wanted to start it with a bang. xP

Yeah other people commented the same thing. About how people sometimes say ‘how are you’ and walk off. They don’t expect a response then.

I actually had a friend go off at me and bloody YELL at me just because I didn’t say ‘how are you’. Later in the day I picked it up and I said ‘so.. I did something wrong yeah?’ and he was so furious that I didn’t even ask him how he was and he asked me. Well in a normal conversation with friends, sometimes you wouldn’t even have to ask. ._.

I strongly dislike the color pink; it seems too cliche among female blogs and overall, it just screams tacky.

I used to have a habit of biting my nails too, but I only really do it now when I’m extremely bored, or I’ve accidentally chipped away part of my nail by being careless.

Public restrooms are also the worst. You don’t know whose butt was on the seat before you used it. :X

I used to blog every single day, too, but then I realized I was quickly running out of blogging ideas, and so I stopped doing that. xD Also, it was like no one ever had time to read my entries. So I figured if I blogged every couple days that was good enough.

Hmm…no, I don’t think you’re following me on Twitter. Mine’s @ahoysydney, and I looked for your name in my followers and couldn’t find you. O_o

Yeah, I know. My mom’s dad had cancer and they say after cancer you should go in a couple times a year to make sure it isn’t coming back, and he didn’t go back in and so they found it much too late and he died. 😐 It’s really sad. I’m just hoping this tumor, or whatever it is, is benign.

I love Whole Foods food. <3 It makes you feel so much better than, say, McDonald's or something like that. Plus, the buffet food is really great because it's mostly salad! 🙂 I love stopping in there and buying little things.

Well, forensic anthropologists mostly work with bones. They don't work with decomposing flesh, or intact dead bodies. Just bones. That's their line of work. And I can handle bones, haha. 😛

Thanks for joining the forum! 🙂 I understand that you can't always be active. It's hard to be active on anything when you're mostly mobile. I hope you get your laptop back soon though!

That's true. :X I'm sure the day I'm driving 8 hours will suck. I just hope that never really comes, haha.

I won’t say I hate the color pink because it generally depends what thing is in that color. However,I am not a big fan. It is generally associated with girlishness and that is what I despise.

I am bored, so I’ll share some random facts about me.

  1. My name is Shriya, pronounced SHREEYAH but for some reason, on the internet, most people type it SHIRYA. I never reply.

  2. When I am nervous about an exam and know that I should stay up, I sleep.

  3. I cried the first time a guy told me he liked me.

  4. I can’t sleep with the light on.

  5. I don’t eat dinner.

  6. I am wearing a red t-shirt with black jeans.

  7. This is just the seventh fact and I am stuck at what to type.

  8. I wrote 2500 words today. I am incredibly proud!

I don’t actually mind certain shades of pink. I hate the color orange and sometimes yellow. I don’t why; I just do.

I love traveling by car, but probably because that was the main form of transportation when I was a kid. We would take road trips and play all of travel games. Anyway, it brings back good memories for me.

This was nice to learn more about you. Your site is looking really good:~)

I completely agree with one, two, five, six, and seven! I don’t like driving at all. I mean, I’m not even old enough to drive but I will be old enough to get my permit this upcoming month and I already don’t like driving. Blech.

Scheduled entries are cool! I like reading things like this about other people. It’s always pretty interesting.

Liz’s gravatar

Ahahh. Thank you. 🙂

Yeah, I have a few of these in my scheduled thing. They’re pretty easy to stock up on. :3

Juniper’s gravatar

You are welcome! Do you find all of them at Squidoo?

Liz’s gravatar

@Juniper, Nope. I find them at various places, or I’ll make them myself.

I hate using public restrooms. I think they are nasty and I always question who used them before. Maybe I am paranoid too, but you know, we have to actually sit on the toilet and I always wonder who sat on it before. I love talking to my online friends too; I get reassured when I talk to them lol. Yep those are the ones we agree on lol

Yea you are right I hate to say “bad music” I guess a bad word choice on my part. Everyone does have different music taste. I guess its not good music to me lol But it is catchy

Liz’s gravatar

@Tiffany, toilets (even in GOOD public restrooms) have been proven to have less germs and bacteria than the kitchen counter. It’s quite … odd, if you ask me. 🙁

Karin’s gravatar

Well, I actually love pink 😛 But I hate driving, I guess I just have zero interest in cars. I don’t even own a car right now.
