You Are 25 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Thoughts on Jewish childrens names

I think I want to name my children names that are obviously Jewish.

It cuts down on EVERYONE having your same name (a problem when you're named MELISSA)
It puts forth a strong and proud Jewish identity.
Hebrew and English names would be the same, and you wouldn't come across "Davida Emmanuela" (my sister's Hebrew name) type issues.

These are the ones that I like the most that I'm considering for my children.

Aviva (too close to Aviyah?)

Ariel (Ari?)
Eliezer (Eli, pronounced "EE-lye" not "EH-lee")
Elijah (Eli)

When I was 13, I wanted to name my first girl "Hannah Rebecca" and have her Hebrew name be "Chanah Rivka," but then my aunt stole it for her daughter, Anna. At this point I'd rather just name my child their Hebrew name in English, but unfortunately Chanah Rivka is still taken :(

Things that.... (shallow version)

annoy me:

1. when people say "aks" or "ax" instead of "ask."
2. people who don't put enough faith in me to come through
3. people who don't come through when you put faith in them
4. my phone, and it's crappy service inside my house
5. people who can't do their jobs (generally pertaining to phone customer service, servers, cashiers, bankers, etc)
6. having not as much attention paid to me or having me wait longer just because people know I won't do anything about it
7. being walked over, passed over, looked over, etc
8. bad eyebrows. I cannot stress this enough
9. people leaving garbage in my house/room/car
10. people leaving the EFFING DISHWASHER OPEN.

I like:

1. cold weather
2. that it's November which equals MY BIRTHDAY, HP & the GoF, candy sales, T-day and seeing my niece
3. my glasses. They make me look smart :)
4. being single, for the most part
5. really well-written essays that challenge my thoughts
6. my friends, old and new
7. straight auburny hair with bangs in my eyes
8. finding out I have a new photo up in someones facebook album
9. the familiarity of things I remember from days gone by
10. being me. I like me.
