Random 25 Things from Facebook

RULES: Once you have been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it is because I want to know more about you. If you didn’t get tagged, I’d still love to know more about you, I am abiding by the original rules of the game ( so please don’t be offended! )
