Tag: First thing..

I saw this tag on deliciae.org and thought I'd give this a try.
A random photo of me and a Aragorn cosplayer at RingCon 2012.

First thing you do when you wake up in the morning:
Turn of my alarm clock and snooze it for another 10 minutes. After that I check if I've got any messages most of the time. Then I get up to turn on my computer and take a shower or get dressed. It depends on what I did the night befroe.

First things you do when you get to the gym:
As I actually go to the gym, I lock down my bike first and get in to change, fill up my water bottle and do some bodypump, spinning or work out.
First thing you do when you get home from work:
It depends on what time and from which job I get back. I just stopped working at the store last week but most of the time after I came home from that I grabbed a drink and a small bite. Go upstairs, get on my pj's and watch a tv show.
When I come home from giving ski class, I get into the shower immediately. So it depends really.

First car: 
I've never owned a car before, but the first car I drove in was my parents. A Citroen Xsara Picaso.

First accident/traffic violation:
I don't think I really had one. I biked into a woman one time, because I was biking with an umbrella, which was a very stupid thing to do. So this will be the closes to a accident. A violation would be my first speeding ticket I got for driving 3 km/h to fast. Which costed me 48 euros. For 3 km/h, awesome!

First thing you wanted to be when you grew up:
I really wanted to be a dolphin trainer when I was younger. I loved dolphins and went to this park (Dolphinarium) a lot. It was my dream at that time.

First choice beverage:
Water. Very easy and good for the thirst.

First choice dessert:
This is actually a hard one. But I think I'm going to say tiramisu.

First song that comes to mind:
Howard Shore - Misty Mountains, if you've seen the Hobbit, you'll know of which song I'm talking about. It's so beautiful and I can't seem to get it out of my head.

First major purchase:
My first iPod, if you can call that a major purchase. I was around 12 years old and an iPod was very expensive for me at that time. My Canon D600 was the follow up, which I bought exactly a year ago.

First job:
Babysitter for my neighbours, I think I was around 12 years old and got asked to babysit. I didn't mind for a few nights a month, and they payed me! Plus I didn't really mind doing it.

First time you flew on a plane:
This is actually quite a funny one. My first fly on a plane. Was to South Africa, yes. South Africa. I was 16 years old and as we always went on holidays by car, my first flight took 9 hours. This has also been my longest one so far.
