30 day photo challenge - day one

I saw this cute idea over at Fried Pink Tomato and it looks like SO much fun! So, I think I am going to join in and really try to make it happen and keep up with it.

Day #1- A photo of yourself with ten facts:

1. I am 29 years old and still feel like I'm 16.
2. I grew up in a very conservative, Christian home.
3. I have lived in South Carolina my entire life. I moved to Myrtle Beach about six years ago and I lived in the same house in Dillon, SC before that.
4. I drink a Monster energy drink every single day. It is my morning cup of coffee because I hate coffee.
5. My accent is my trademark. Everyone from SC has a southern accent... but for whatever reason... mine is stronger than most... maybe I will vlog (video blog) one day soon and you can see for yourself.
6. I have an anxiety disorder... and I'm almost positive that I also have OCD. Both disorders stem from control issues... when I'm not in control of a situation... I always get anxious. Some OCD tendencies of mine: I count to ten over and over in my head when I'm rushing to do something; I must listen to my voicemails the minute the icon pops up because I cannot stand for it to be there; I must look at every single notification on Facebook because I cannot stand to see them there either; and everything must be symmetrical.
7. I am an aunt to four beautiful children. Ben is the oldest at 10. He is the smartest kid I've ever seen... he can look at an instruction guide and have some enormous Lego creature put together in 2.5 seconds. Leigh Anna is two years behind him at 8. She is in 3rd grade but at 6th grade reading level... another smarty pants. Lindsay is the youngest girl at 3. She is my crazy baby... wild and rambunctious and forever injuring herself. She knocked out one of her front teeth when she was 2 and so she will have that one-toothed grin for a while. :) Luke is the baby at 6 months old. He was a big baby... weighing 10 lbs at birth. He is currently wearing 18 month old clothes... he's gonna be our linebacker.
8. Aside from my nephews and nieces, I am not a kid lover.  I have never wanted kids and... although it may change as I get older... I still don't want kids. I'm too impatient and they get on my nerves. Does that make me a bad person?
9. I'm OBSESSED with Clemson football.
10. I created my own domain today - http://www.lifeasjanedoe.com/ :)
