25 Random Things About Me

I got this idea from Facebook.  You write 25 random things about you and tag people to write.  There are lots of surprises and it is truly enjoyable to know other people’s interest.  

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.
