I got tagged!!! Yippee!!

I love getting tagged in blog posts. Why? Well they give me something to write about when I don't have anything to write about. :-)

Okay, so here are the rules that I need to share.

1.) Post these rules.
2.) You MUST post 11 random things about yourself.
3.) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
4.) Create 11 new question for the people you ask to answer.
5.) Go to their blog and tell them they have been they have been Tagged.
So Here are 11 Random things about me!

Now for the Random things about me!

(1) I love chickens - I love eating them, raising them, reading about them, and anything else about them.
(2) I want to own my own property/house by the time I am 20 years old. Where? I have no idea yet...
(3) I want to own a restaurant and hobby farm when I grow up.
(4) I love working. For money or not, I love working. I especially love working outside.
(5) I am taking business and communication classes in college.
(6) I sleep at the bottom of a bunk bed. I share a room with my brother.
(7) I have 4 e-mail accounts, 2 bank accounts, 2 social networking accounts, and multiple other accounts on odd websites. This results in a lot of passwords!!
(8) I love the Lord, and I can't believe how amazing He is with His abundant mercy.
(9) I am on my computer a lot, almost all day. I would rather be doing something outside, like raising chickens, but not yet...
(10) I know how to drive, a stick-shift. Which is actually fun!
(11) I have an eating problem...I find myself eating when I am bored, depressed, sad, or angry.

Now these are the questions I need to answer that Gracie gave me.

1. What is your favorite book?
I love the Bible, which is probably one of my favorite books. However, if I had to pick something other than the Bible, I would have to pick the "Circle" series by Ted Dekker. (Black, Red, White, Green, etc.)
2. If you could go any place in the world, where would it be?
I would love to go to Australia, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Possibly the Middle East too. Such as Israel and/or Egypt.
3. What is your favorite type of ice cream?
I'm boring...I love vanilla. It's plain and simple, but it's tasty and doesn't make my throat burn after I eat it.
4. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I have thought long and hard about this my whole life. My brother and I used to play games where we would have multiple super powers and defend someone with them. I would probably have strength, however flying sounds really fun too!
5. What is your favorite joke?
My favorite joke is a blonde joke that I learned at Jet's Pizza (the place I worked at). It was a bad environment which is why I learned this joke there. (Please take note that I do not believe blondes are dumb or stupid at the slightest. Everyone has their "dumb" moments, especially me! My sister Tirzah is blonde and she is very smart.)

The joke goes something like this: "A blonde was swimming in a swimming pool. She dove straight down to touch the bottom of the pool, when she saw a little sticker on the bottom. She read what is said and immediately obeyed. The sticker said, 'Scratch and Sniff. '"

(6) If you could accomplish one thing in your life, what would it be?
I would like to own my own restaurant and be able to make enough profit from it to be able to purchase land/homes for all of my children.
(7) What is your favorite color?
I would have to say green. I used to love black, but it's so dark and is used a lot for evil, so I decided to start liking green more, which I have!
(8) What five adjectives would you use to describe yourself?
Big, Tall, Strong, Weird, Random.  (Hopefully those are accurate, let me know in a comment if you think different!)
(9) What is your pet peeve?
When plans change.
(10) What is your favorite song?
To tell you the truth, it use to be "I wanna be a Billionaire" but now it is probably "Giving you all control" by Jeremy Camp.
(11) Which of these questions did you like the most?
I liked number 6 the best because it's something I think about everyday.

Now I get to make up 11 questions for those I tag to answer! :D

(1) What is your favorite word?
(2) What is your favorite time in the day?
(3) If you could evangelize to someone, who would it be?
(4) If you were able to meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
(5) What is your favorite flavor of Gatorade?
(6) If you had 1 wish, anything, what would it be?
(7) What is your favorite Bible verse that relates to you personally?
(8) What do you want to be when you grow up?
(9) If a lion approached you on the road, and was about to attack, what would you do?
(10) What subject in school do you appreciate the most?
(11) What "active" activity that you like the best?

Now I get to tag people, and as Gracie said it; "MWAHAHAHAHA! (Malicious grin)" I feel the same way!

I tag 4 people,

My two cousins:
Tori  - at her blog
Zoe  - at her blog.

And two friends:
Dodi - at her blog.
Shamarah Sunshine - at her blog.

I really want to tag my sister, Tirzah and Gracie again, but I know they already did it. :D

Have a ton of fun writing the answers to the questions!!
God bless,

Hahaha! Thanks Gracie! That's awesome! :D

Awesome #6! :D And I love number 9.

Had an awesome time seeing you too!
Hopefully we can see each other again before you go to Florida. :-(

God bless,

I'll feel tagged with Gracie.

(1) What is your favorite word?
I really don't have one. Though quotes from movies are a good part of my vocabulary sometimes.
(2) What is your favorite time in the day?
Late afternoon, after all the school is done. It's about then I get my second wind.
(3) If you could evangelize to someone, who would it be?
Besides my local community, I would have to say people like Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and George Strait. It saddens me to see their lifestyles and know that they do not know the Lord. One day they will wake up and know they have nothing of worth in this world, I wish they knew the Lord Jesus.
(4) If you were able to meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
Franklin Graham and Sir Author Conan Doyle (strange, I know).
(5) What is your favorite flavor of Gatorade?
Doesn't matter to me, just so long as it tastes good.
(6) If you had 1 wish, anything, what would it be?
I do not know for sure. Probably I would echo Solomon and ask for wisdom from the Lord so that I could have a deeper understanding of Him.
(7) What is your favorite Bible verse that relates to you personally?
I do not think I could pin-point one verse as a favorite. But a few years ago 2 Timothy 1:7 was very applicable to me. I still think on it sometimes when I'm going through something that scares me.
(8) What do you want to be when you grow up?
A lawyer.
(9) If a lion approached you on the road, and was about to attack, what would you do?
Make sure all other people were out of the area. Then get out of there... fast.
(10) What subject in school do you appreciate the most?
I use most of my skills, but I do appreciate learning facts, and history, writing, science, and Constitutional Law have done that for me.
(11) What "active" activity that you like the best?
I like throwing a football around and running.

How's that?


Josiah said...

Ahh! Matthew, I didn't even think about tagging you! :P Now I feel horrible! But at least you did it!

Hahaha! Thanks for doing that! Now I know a little bit more about you. :D You want to be a lawyer? That's awesome!

Matthew said...

Nonsense, don't feel bad. I just do it anyways, as you said. :P

I do, if I can get out of the first two years of college by CLEPing, I'll be well on my way :)


Josiah said...

You should! You should also consider asking your mom or dad to help you get registered into a PSEO program. I'm not sure if there are any where you live, however it's a great way to get college credits while take highschool classes. So far I have 12 credits, which I got last semester, this semester I'm taking it slow and I working at 9 more. Next semester though I plan to get 15 more and possibly another 15 before I graduate so I can get my AA when I turn 18. :D

In your blog post you said to say if I/we think differntly about "What five adjectives would you use to describe yourself" I personally think you are one of the most un-weird person in the world. (except when it comes to digits)You ussualy seem very logical. At least that's what I think.
