"There are times when I'm so impossible"



Here's something to make my day. I got this sweet award from an even sweeter girl, Ruxandra at Daydreamer. Thanks so much doll, a lot of e-hugs going your way!

I have to share 10 facts about me, so here they are:


1. English is my second language but I swear that sometimes it's tied for first place with Romanian. I've been speaking English since I was 5 years old and for me it doesn't matter which of them I choose to speak cause it's just the same for me. Strangely, I also prefer British English and can always whip out the posh accent, especially for exams ;)


2. Even though I'm a creature of comfort, I do adore all things posh. Strong perfumes, velvet pillows, expensive dark chocolate, feathers and pearls, silk neck ties, big chunky cocktail rings, leather bound books. Love them!


3. I am such a book worm. I love curling up on my bed with a good book. Surprisingly, I wasn't an avid reader when I was a child but along came highschool and bam! the book worm in me pounced on anything it could get its greedy little hands on. Right now I am in love with F. Scott FItzgerard and Chuck Palahniuk.


4. I am walking example of the "sadistic" med student type. I actually did a little victory dance in the hospital hallway when I learned that I could watch a brain tumor operation. And I get excited at the mention of "surgery" or "blood"


5. And I am afraid of needles. Ironic, n'est pas?


6. I think I fall in love with cute strangers every day. On the bus, at school, at a cafe. I think it's because I've watched too many romantic movies when growing up.


7. I'm a very touchy-feely person. I hug, I cuddle, I hold hands, I smooch, I kiss, I pounce, I snuggle, I cling etcetera.


8. I am the kind of person that would probably forget to pay the water bill or electrical bill because she bought shoes with that money. Thank god I love candle light and have best friends who will always take me in for a hot shower.


9. I can watch the same movie or listen to the same song over and over again. I love getting everything I can from it, watching and listening until I am sure I got everything it had to offer. And then I might not bother with it for months or years to come.


10. I love and am attracted like crazy to sparkly and shiny things. Like a fish. Or a magpie. That goes "Ooooooh, shiny!!" and gets this glazed look in its eyes.

Haha amazing list dear! I am a total magpie too, I positively squeal at the sight of sparkly things. And English is my second language too, although I naturally have a British accent ;) Hope you're having a lovely day dear :)

Love your blog!

sugar&spice said...

i love your blog and this is such a cute post! the pictures were really awesome as well, i loved the one with needles. odd as im afraid of needles too...

OLiX said...

everytime I'm asked to write something about me I say "I don't know what to say about me" and I really don't know. I don't really know how long took you to write this but it's amazing how many beautiful things you can say about yourself!

Starting from today I'll do a draft on my blog where I'll start writing things about me so when I'll be asked I'll know what to tell ;)

Congrats for the article!

You seem to know yourself so well. English is my second language too, and I am not to friendly with needles either. Great post, can relate to several things.

Alice in vintageland said...

I love this one! I can relate with everything you said here (except number 1 (I wish!!!) and 4 (I'm afraid of blood and everything med related))- actually it's a little bit scary!:)
