Strike Out Challenge


This challenge is gonna be fun, y'all! And very personal, so y'all beware...y'all may discover some deep, dark secrets about yours truly. *winks*

Thanks to the lovely Saraina Whitney for tagging me! Y'all check out her post here!

The rules for the tag are simple (like, so simple that they don't have rules): just strike out whichever of the items on the list you've done! And you can explain the how, when, and why of it, if you like! And I guess you can tag however many people you want...and link back to the person who tagged you...and have FUN!

 

Kissed someone – I wish. *coughs* I mean...no. Not in that way.

Gone to a rock concert – Oof, nope. As much as I love rock, nope. I don’t do concerts...and neither do my parents, for that matter. Fine by me.

Helped someone – Yeesh, I should hope so!

Gone fishing – Yes! And I’d do it more often if I had the patience...and the assurance that I could eat the fish afterwards.

Watched four movies in one night – Oh, gosh. No. Just watching one takes way too long as it is, due to having so many little siblings.

Lied to someone – Pft, never. I’m known ‘round the world for my honesty! (If you caught that reference, God bless you, lovely person.)

Failed a subject – Now I really mean never. Couldn’t dare ruin my perfect GPA.

Been in a car accident – Thank God, no!

Been in a tsunami – Also thank God, no! I...I honestly don’t think I could handle a natural disaster. *shudders*

Watched someone die (including pets) – Pets (other people's, not mine) and livestock, yes. People, no.

Been to a funeral – Unfortunately, yes.

Burned yourself – Oh, gosh, so many times. I still have a scar from one...and once, I burned myself on our curling iron, and I ended up with the brand name etched on my arm when we attended a family Christmas party.

Run a marathon – BAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Never.

Spend over 10,000 bucks in one day – Dude, I’ve never even seen 10k. Let alone possessed it. Never mind spent it. Much less in A DAY. Wow.

Flown on an aeroplane – Not yet!

Written an 18 page letter (front & back) – Whew. I can write a pretty long letter, but this? This is commitment, y’all.

Gone skiing – Nope. I am a Southerner who never travels, so there ya have it.

Lost someone you loved – Yes...in more ways than one, I suppose.

Got into trouble for something you didn’t do – ALL. THE. TIME. It’s my purpose as the oldest child.

Stolen a book from a library – …Pretty sure I gave all those back...

Gone to a different country – Man, I wish!

Gambled in a casino – Um...is that even legal for a girl my age?

Been in a school play – Do church musicals count?

Taken a lie detector test – Nope...but I’d love to! I think...

Voted for someone on a reality TV show – Nah. Don’t watch “reality” TV.

Read more than 20 books a year – Oh, absolutely!

Gone to Europe – *sighs* One of these days...

Had a surgery – Thank the Lord, never!

Had stitches – Same here!

Ridden a tuk-tuk (autorickshaw) – Nope, but I imagine it’d be fun!

Had more than 5 IM conversations going on at once – Oh, yes. I am such a scattered multi-tasker.

Been in a fist fight – Fight, yes. Fist, no. I can’t throw a decent punch, and fortunately no one has ever attempted to throw one at me, so I’m good for now.

Had a pet – A pet cactus named Langston, yes. An animal? Never, and I don’t want that to change any time soon.

Petted a wild animal – Dude, what do you think? Absolutely! Baby deer (it was the cutest), snakes, fish, rabbits...basically whatever has stayed still long enough and isn’t a cat.

Had your own credit card & bought something with it – Debit card, yes. Credit card, no. And probably not ever.

Dyed your hair – Unpopular opinion here...but I don’t even believe in hair dye, much less have I ever used it. (I did wanna have pink hair as a kid, though. Thanks to Stephanie from LazyTown. I mean, who doesn’t??)

Got a tattoo – Again, against my personal beliefs. *winks* Plus...that’s just...really frightening.

Had something pierced – OKAY OKAY I’M HOLINESS SO WHAT. *chuckles* Seriously, though, I could pass for Mennonite or something.

Got a straight A – Of course!

Taken pictures with a webcam – Ew, hate to admit it, but yes. And they sucked.

Gone to sleep with music on – Oh, absolutely! I used to every time as a toddler, and as I got a wee bit older, we had the most wonderful white noise player. *sighs*

(Maybe I'll just push it up to the top and forget all those other post ideas. XD) I LOVED READING YOUR ANSWERS GIRL!!!!!!!!! But girl we gotta talk about what are ya doing burning yourself with a curling iron???? Did it hurt that bad? Cuz having its name etched into your arm does NOT sound fun. XD I loved your answer for the stolen a library book. The "pretty sure I gave all those back" that cracked me up for some reason. XD YOU HAD A PET CACTUS. Like…

AHHHH THANK YOUUU!!! YES YOU SHOULD!!! (Do it.) SO GLAD YOU DID!!! I reached for something and accidently touched the curling iron! Hence why I don't curl my own hair... And YES IT DID! I was only eight, I think, which of course made it seem even worse. XD

LOL! So glad you liked that one! XD

YES! JUST GOT HIM FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!

They do. It's official now.

Aww, haha, fingers crossed! XD

Oof! Now, that, I wanna see! LOL!

"The rules for the tag are simple (like, so simple that they don't have rules)." Oops, that might just have been my fault! 😆 I just didn't include any rules when I revived this tag lol. Clearly I didn't know what I was doing. 🙃


You wish you've been kissed before? 😏


I can almost not believe how many people have admitted to burning themselves over the course of this tag! 😂


"Lost someone you loved – Yes...in more ways than one, I suppose." Girl, stop making me cry! 😭😭😭


Aww, goodness, I can swear no name can get any more adorable than Langston the Cactus!


Great answers, Grace! 💛

These were some interesting questions! Love your answers, Grace!

(I'm writing this while pumping up an air bed with my foot -- ah, moving days.)

I'm the same as you for a bunch of the questions- (I'm with you with the hair dye, tattoos and piercing!) expect I have flown in a plane several times... and while I've been around the UK, I've never been to Mainland Europe, and that's what I always think of when Europe is mentioned, and I'd love to go there. (Don't get me wrong though- The UK is amazing!)

And um, no, I've never kissed someone romantically nor been in a fist fight.

So fun, Grace! Thanks for sharing!
