25 Random Things About Me

Here it is, the famous list, I will post on Facebook later!
  1. I had a wonderful childhood, I lived in a quintessential suburban neighborhood where all the kids played together and the families all knew each other. I got to do so many wonderful things. I also have wonderful parents and this certainly helped. This all continued right into adulthood!
  2. I once had a homeless man sleeping in my car. I had purposely left it open because I hated driving it. A week later, I got my own car.
  3. I really love playing sports and wish I had more opportunities as an adult.
  4. I love reading and I normally am reading at least 3 books at any given time.
  5. My name is Melissa Howard and I am a theme-park addict. I absolutely love Disneyland and I am not afraid to admit it! I also love Walt Disney World and would be happy returning there every year. Some people I know are doing a Disney-Round-the-World trip in 2010 and I really want to go. It will be 3-4 weeks and go to Disneyland, Disney World, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disney and Tokyo Disneyland!
  6. I have been to Calcutta, India and Caracas, Venezuela; both on mission trips. I really hope to return to India some day but I would rather go to Antarctica than Venezuela ever again.
  7. I am pretty active on message boards and forums. I love meeting new and different types of people from all around the world.
  8. I am optimistic and always know that deep down God is in control.
  9. I like being a leader and being the one in charge.
  10. I love planning things – vacations, parties, dinners, you name it!
  11. I am deathly afraid of snakes, sometimes I can’t even watch them on TV.
  12. I am a firm believer in western medicine and taking pills.
  13. I get bored easily, luckily I have a pretty good imagination to keep my company.
  14. I very much look forward to being a wife and mother.
  15. I feel so lucky to have a pretty wide circle of friends. I can honestly say there is more than one person I can count as a best friend.
  16. I always smell my socks when I take them off. My dad does this too.
  17. One of my favorite foods is pickle, weenie and cheese. It is raw Farmer John wieners, cheddar cheese and sweet pickles all cut up and mixed together. YUM!
  18. When I was younger I was obsessed with creating haunted houses and carnivals.
  19. I have always respected the various women I have worked for.
  20. It irritates me when people with far less responsibilities than me complain about how busy they are.
  21. I love musicals and singing along with them!
  22. I deeply love my church.
  23. I have set it up where I should be able to retire when I am in my late 50s.
  24. I used to be very conservative, then I got real liberal and now I am heading back to conservative again!
  25. I cry with love for America every time I vote.


  1. I just wanted to stop by to say "Hi:)" Love ya, Shannon

  2. Interesting random thoughts. I just wonder how you gage #20, because I thought the same thing for a long time - then realized that I have no idea what other's really do during the day to compare to me. I'm fairly confident that the unemployed man with no children or pets does not do as much as you are I, though!
