25 Things

07 Feb

Once you’ve been tagged, you’re supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. at the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. you have to tag the person who tagged you.

1. I am deathly afraid of rodents of any kind. If you want me to not speak to you for a week or forever, you only have to scare me with rodents. But please don’t

2. For some irrational reason, I can’t get on and off escalators properly. I have to step on at the even numbered steps from where I started counting. And I can’t for the life of me figure out why

3. Like Ailene, I don’t know how to ride a bike or whistle. Or snap my fingers. Or blow bubblegums. Or wink. Or raise my eyebrows.

4. When I was 6 years old, I stole my cousin’s stationery (I think it was you Ate Carren, right?) and sold it to my classmates

5. I am a big pop culture fanatic. Ask me anything about movies, music, books, tv shows, gossip, I would probably know it. Well, except for local pop culture, I am clueless about that

6. As of this moment, I have no plans at all of getting married or having children. Not just because there is no one even remotely on the horizon, but because I love being single more than being in any kind of long-term relationship. And also, if I could marry my job, I would. Haha

7. I absolutely don’t like R&B/hiphop music (except for a few artists) or house/trance/techno music (except for Chicane and Massive Attack). I would rather listen to a dozen one hit wonder pop alternative bands than listen to a song by Chris Brown and the like (I can’t distinguish them from each other anyways)

8. I love vampires but I have no patience at all for anything Twilight (except its soundtrack). I would rather read the Watch series by Sergei Lukyenko, watch True Blood and Moonlight, or even read Anne Freaking Rice. But no Stephanie Meyer for me, thank you very much

9. I am a geek and I’m not ashamed of it

10. I’ve never been out of the country, but I plan to change all that before I turn 30. Which is in a few months. And I still don’t have my passport by the way

11. I devour books by Tolkien, Gaiman, Atwood, Roth, Plath. On the other end of the spectrum, I collect Patterson, Garwood, Shreve, Roberts and a few old Mills and Boons books. I also like books aimed at teens (Artemis Fowl, Septimus Heap and the likes) but I NEVER read chick lit. I think they’re detrimental to my health

12. In spite of # 6, I love attending and/or organizing my friends’ weddings. There’s something about seeing people I know pledge their love to each other and me helping them have a stress-free wedding day that just brings contentment to my heart

13. To de-stress myself, I organize my files and my Itunes folders

14. I’m a download whore. I get antsy if there’s nothing downloading on my bit torrent

15. I may seem talkative and outgoing, but put me in a situation where I don’t know anyone and I clam up and panic and hyperventilate

16. I am not photogenic. I have never practiced what’s my best angle. I dunno how to smile. I automatically stick my tongue out. I probably have 2 or 3 decent pictures. But I am not really bothered about it

17. For people who know me after college, it is very surprising to them to know that I weighed 80 lbs when I was 18

18. I would rather sit in a coffee shop drinking coffee and talking rather than go to a bar that doesn’t have a band

19. In connection to # 18, I don’t dance

20. I consider National Bookstore my personal mecca. I am obsessed with buying post its, ballpens, notebooks and other knickknacks. I don’t always use them, but I still buy them

21. One of my dreams is to sing in a Broadway revue. I Dreamed a Dream or On My Own or I’m Not That Girl or Memory or The Movie in My Mind

22. I like The Jonas Brothers. I want to marry Joe Jonas. So sue me

23. I think tennis players and football players (not American football okay) are the hottest athletes

24. Contrary to what some of my officemates say, I am not gay. I did think i was for about 15 minutes way back in high school, but I concluded that I like men too much

25. I like answering lists like this, even though it is so tiresome
