A few days back, I decided to launch a 30-day blog challenge for the month of April, and I am now on day 03 of 30. After rambling on for a few hours, I now came up with the below listing 20 facts about me. Join me as I do this introspective exercise. I hope you also enjoy sneaking through the window into some bits of me. Let’s now kick day 03 off of this blog challenge with 20 facts about me and my life.
20 Facts About Me
- I am the middle child, born second of the three. They said when you’re the middle child in a family of five, you don’t get any attention at all. But, that’s not applicable to me. I think I am the favorite (haha).
- I love math. When I was younger, I could even multiply a three-digit number by a two-digit number mentally. Now, that was a skill long forgotten. But still, I love math. That’s the reason why I took up engineering (haha).
- One of the silliest things about my compassion for animals is when it extended to insects. I remember I was about to take a bath before when I saw an ant in the shower area. I moved it to the other side so it wouldn’t get drown after turning the shower on. Please, don’t laugh at me.
- I am hopeless romantic. I love old songs and handwritten love letters.
- Those who are close to me know this. I don’t give up on a dream, unless I can’t try anymore.
- In relation to #5, if I have unsettled issues before I sleep, I usually dream about them. For example, I spent the whole evening on a math problem that I couldn’t solve. I continued solving during my sleep. The solution I arrived at during my sleep was sufficiently etched in my mind that I was able to solve it the next morning. How cool was that? Sometimes, I am amazed how a brain functions.
- I have high pain tolerance. Tattoos and piercings are okay. Teeth extraction is okay. Broken heart is okay (haha). But, I surrender to dysmenorrhea. When it kicks in, I feel like dying! Over the years, I learned a strategy to avoid it. Drinking pain reliever right after the first drop will do the trick. Prevention is always better than cure.
- My two big toenails already died three times – result of hiking and trailing. It took months before they grew back. I also learned that when you completely lost your nail, they grow back upwards like a sprouting mountain from a plain.
- When I was younger, I dreamed of becoming a fare collector (konduktor sa jeep) and the jeepney driver should be my father. I laugh everytime I remember that.
- In relation to #9, I also dreamed of becoming a house maid because I love to wash the dishes and doing laundry, especially making that sound when you hand-wash your clothes.
- Being idle paralyzes me. Most of the time, you will find me doing almost anything because I hate doing nothing, except of course on some days.
- I am a sapiosexual – I like those who are silent but I can have great conversation with. I have low tolerance on someone who uses big words (earphones, please).
- If I am stressed of what I am doing, I will clean the house, even the toilet. It’s a total stress reliever!
- I can listen to “Leader of the Band”, “What’s Up”, and “Sound of Silence” non-stop in loop whole day and still enjoy it.
- I sincerely believe that you shouldn’t be afraid of asking questions because there is no such thing as a “stupid” question unless you ask it only for attention.
- During college, I (thinking she forgot about it) called out the attention of my teacher for teaching the same thing the same way the same style that she did the previous meeting. She got mad and scolded me in front of everyone, only to find out that there was a PAASCU accreditation (if you know what I mean).
- I forgive easily. Because of this, some people take me for granted.
- People say I am sweet. I guess, I am (haha). If you’re having a bad day, I can buy you an ice cream. I love all that I love, and I would do anything for them.
- I have a sensitive nose. Before the rain comes, I can already smell it. A friend once told me I am a walking weather man. Others say I am a dog.
- I feel like I am an old soul trapped in a young body. Most of the people my age think I am boring. There are times I feel like I am speaking a foreign language. I don’t mean it but I find some people dim and shallow uninteresting, knowing that they can be more than that. I am lucky to have established and kept some good company, and I am already contented with that. <3
