25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

17 Nov

This past week on Facebook there has been a little game going on where you are assigned a number and you have to write the same number of facts about yourself that maybe most people don’t know. I think People magazine does the same thing called ’25 Things You Don’t Know About Me’. I thought today I’d try to do that for you guys about me. If you have been following my blog for some time you know the basics; I’m more of an introvert, I am a cancer survivor, I love lipstick, I love chocolate, I love music, and obviously from my last blog, I love Bruno Mars.  So here’s 25 things you may not know about me:

  1. I will never be a vegetarian, I am a carnivore…I love meat
  2. I am afraid of lightning
  3. I am allergic to cats, plus they freak me out a little because I feel like they know what I’m thinking when they look at me
  4. I’m claustrophobic
  5. I don’t like bananas (texture thing), but I do like them in smoothies or fried, Filipino style
  6. I have never felt comfortable in my own skin until now, I’m a dork
  7. I changed my major three times in college but still graduated in four years-going spring and summer too (music/dance, then business, aeronautical engineering, finally biomedical science/chemistry)
  8. Took the MCAT and the GRE thinking med school or PhD in Pharmacology. Ended up starting an MBA after GMAT and hating it (sorry for the expense mom and dad)
  9. I have a dream of opening a small boutique somewhere. I’m sure you can guess at least one item that would be in it. I even already have the concept and name…
  10. I’ve been in two beauty pageants to help me overcome my shyness, I won them both
  11. I delivered all three kids with no drugs
  12. I have kept a journal since 3rd or 4th grade
  13. Christmas is my favorite holiday but it makes me a little sad because I have memories of my dad listening to Christmas music and tearing up from missing his family in the Philippines (My parents left family and friends for the American Dream)
  14. I stole something in 2nd grade…guess what it was? A Chunky chocolate bar. Can’t really hide that in your pocket. My mom made me apologize to the store owner and I’ve never ‘shoplifted’ again
  15. I get carsick in the back of buses, vans, cars, etc
  16. I love seeing hawks, eagles, butterflies…beautiful things that fly; they just amaze me and look so free
  17. My parents bought me a car for college but never told me I needed an oil change. The transmission failed at 30,000 miles…oops
  18. I love peanut butter
  19. I don’t enjoy cooking but I love washing dishes
  20. I wrote fan mail when I was young to Joan Jett because I thought she was soooo cool (this was early 80’s, give me a break)
  21. I secretly love my dog
  22. I hate cold weather because I’m always cold
  23. I rarely buy anything full price
  24. I hate walking into a crowded room by myself
  25. I love to read and used to read maybe 2-3 books/week. I have not read an entire book since I started playing Candy Crush…sad, I know

Do we have anything in common? Today I wear something I buy repeatedly (which is rare when it comes to lip products); Dior Addict Lip Glow. It feels like a lip balm and when you put it on it basically enhances your natural lipcolor. I love it! It’s me, just better. Cheers!

    We have very little in common from this list. From other things I already knew, we have much in common.
    I did, however, deliver my babies without drugs. It seemed like my only real choice at the time. Drugs have always scared me s***less. I try very hard to find another way.

    You secretly love your dog? How? LOL The dog knows, btw.

      Yes Jo, I think we share lots in common these days, especially our thought process! I pretend to be irritated by my dog all the time because I didn’t really want another after the previous one died. She knows I love her, she’s always by my side, esp during the cancer days!

    Hi Anna, we have a few things in common, I enjoy reading and am still consuming 3 books a week, although i do not like candy crush, lol. I also am very shy and I hate going into a crowded room by myself. I will usually get there early or sneak in along the wall, til i find someone I know.

      You’re better off without Candy Crush! I feel the books beckoning…and I also try to get to crowded places early!
