Day 18: 30 Facts about myself

Day 18 – 30 Facts about myself

  1. its-all-about-me7I could never be a waiter. For the life of me I can never walk from the kitchen to the living room with a cup full of coffee without spilling some. every.single.time!
  2. I can and will use cursive writing every time I’m given the opportunity. I feel strongly about cursive writing having more emphasis put on during early childhood education. 
  3. I played professional volleyball throughout elementary school and first year of high school. I tried to continue playing volleyball in high school over here, but practice at 7am was not fun
  4. I got my first job at 18 working in a deli department in an italian grocery store. Then I helped my best friend to get a job there too. Then she helped me get my second job, and then I helped her 😀 and now she works for herself! and I plan to do the same in the near future 
  5. I had a nice collection of trolls when I was 13. First time visiting Canada and I would hunt them down at every garage sale – my favorite were the ones that go at the top of the pencil
  6. I participated in a couple of local math olympic tests. It was during 6th and 7th grade.
  7. I liked a boy in 7th grade and apparently another boy liked me. One day the “other boy” got into a fight with first boy and broke his nose. Rumours spread through whole school that they fought over me. I didn’t know if I should be impressed or embarrassed… I felt embarrassed. Home room teacher had a nice heart-to-heart talk with me about the event. 
  8. Geometry was my favorite subject during elementary school. Home room teacher was also my tutor and I really admired her, which made learning that much more fun!
  9. When I was younger, I wanted to be a flight attendant. Two of my stepbrother’s aunts were flight attendants and one of them was married to a pilot. Dream came to an end when I found out you have to be good in both English and French (they test you for it) and I absolutely could not learn French – I still don’t know how I passed the courses from second grade to tenth grade!! But when I was little and people used to ask what you want to be when you grow up I would say “what daddy is” and that stuck all through to university years, when I took IT Management as a minor. I couldn’t handle it as a major as it became more and more of a gibberish language as semesters passed. 
  10. I was taken to the in the hospital on the day of my 10th birthday to have my appendix taken out. Doctor said 2 more days and it would have ruptured. 
  11. I can milk a cow. Thank you grandma for teaching me!
  12. I can proudly say I raised chickens from incubation to plate. Thank you dad for helping with the very first 17 roosters to process! 
  13. I can start a campfire without too much trouble. Thanks to the days of “watching cows graze” with my friends. We would make a fire, bake some potatoes and just eat them with a pinch of salt
  14. I am terrified of roller coasters. I really don’t see the fun in itfacts-debate
  15. I am terrified of the dark! My heart races and I start panicking. In the old apartment, I used to turn off the lights in the living room and literally race *myself* to the bedroom.
  16. I like horror movies. Most likely the reason why I am so scared of the dark!
  17. I am terrified of heights. Can’t climb ladders past 5th step… Early childhood memory of me being up on the ladder, cherry picking, and the winds started going and the ladder was moving from side to side with the tree branch. I got so scared, it clearly scarred me for life!
  18. I was in ballet classes for a couple of years. I stopped going because I was the only tall child in the group and it felt really weird being there.
  19. I had a lady coming to watch after me during second and third grade. She would walk me to ballet classes, go over homework with me, and she taught me basic knitting and crocheting. 
  20. I tried ONE pomegranate seed when I was in 4th grade. Pomegranate was not available to purchase at the time. I was in a biology group for extra curriculum activities and the teacher asked each student (12 of us) to take just ONE seed to taste, as it had to last for all kids in the program.
  21. I  concentrate better if I have music or TV playing in the background. It used to drive my mom and dad insane when I would study with the music on. Even at work we have the radio going and it’s a lot better than dead silence! 
  22. First movie I ever saw in theater was The Flintstones Movie. And the second one was Mrs. Doubtfire. 
  23. I cry easily during movies. ‘The last Samurai’ was a movie during which the whole theater was crying. I watched it with my best friend.
  24. I walked in the theater to see ‘The Butterfly Effect’ expecting a total different movie than what it turned out to be. My best friend had tickets from work to go see it. We really thought the movie will be subpar given that they gave her free tickets.
  25. I watched and loved all ‘Planet of the Apes’ movies. I really like the old ones.
  26. I finished the PC game The Prince of Persia twice.  After hours upon hours of failed levels and sweaty palms. Another game I played for hours was ‘Pushover‘ puzzle game. 
  27. When I first came to visit dad in Canada, he got me a hamster. I went back and begged mom to get me 2 hamsters, so one is not lonely. Ya, they didn’t stay more than a few months, as they kept escaping and start chewing everything. When the phone cables were gone, the hamsters were gone.
  28. I hated reading books for pleasure all through early school. It was not until Grade 11 that I started picking up books to read for pleasure. It was after the English teacher had us read ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ by Margaret Atwood. 
  29. I never read ‘A streetcar called desire’ nor ‘Lord of the flies’ when they were assigned in school. I watched the screen play and the movie, respectively. 
  30. I love board games and card games (as you know by now from Day 6). And I actually don’t mind when I lose.
