Finish This + Random Shots of the Week

Today I'm linking up with Nicole at Three31, Jen at Arizona Russums, Becky at the Java Mama, and Lisa at Coastlined to share some random facts about me:

1. I have a quarter to use a pay phone, I call...
This makes me realize I need to memorize more phone numbers. If I had to call anyone from a pay phone, I'm sure I'd want to call Joe, but it might take me two or three tries to get his correct number...

2. I found $25 in my pocket, I buy...
Sadly, the first things I can think of that I need/want to spend money on are an oil change and a car wash. It's kinda boring, but after all the crappy cars I've owned through the years, a running one really is a luxury.

3. I have 25 minutes to watch anything on TV, I turn on...
Anything on my TV, or on a TV with good channels? Right now I like Bachelorette or So You Think You Can Dance. I'd want to watch the last 25 minutes of Bachelorette though, so I can see the rose ceremony. If we weren't already caught up on our shows, I'd want to watch Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, or House of Cards.

4. A meal I can prepare, from start to finish, in 25 minutes is...
Breakfast for dinner: veggies omelets + toast and fruit. Actually, I eat this for lunch a lot, and it probably takes more like 10 minutes to make.

5. At the age of 25, I wish I'd known...
I wish I'd known that you should just go for jobs or opportunities that you aren't necessarily qualified for. When I was unemployed and job searching, I passed over a lot of jobs that I would've really liked because I didn't have all the experience or qualifications they were looking for. The only jobs I was qualified for right out of college were retail or administrative assistant positions. I had to practically beg for my first marketing job, which turned out to be awful, but I'm glad I did because I learned a lot of useful skills that led to my next job.

6. If I drove 25 miles due East from my home, I'd be in...
Rancho Cucamonga, which is where I lived for a few months back in 2011. At the time I was renting a room in a friend's house and commuting about three hours a day. A lot has changed since then...

Some random shots from our week:
Ezzy's first taste of lime. Despite the face, he went back for seconds, thirds, and fourths.

Ezzy was obsessed with this stream.
He kept running back and forth along the stream to examine the water.
