25 things you probably don’t know about me
(This was a Facebook thing awhile ago. I didn’t do it then, mostly because I have a hate/kind-of-like relationship with Facebook and the various things on there. But I decided to post something like this here.)
6. I want to be a writer as well as a visual artist. 7. I adore the Harry Potter books. 8. I love playing board games and card games. 9. I hate competitions. I especially hate when people make everyday life things into competitions. 10. I’m usually quite shy in large groups of people. 11. I have a very hard time concentrating on what I should be working on during the day when I have friends to talk to online. 12. I love when it snows 13. I love skiing – downhill skiing is a little like flying 14. I started out riding my bike more as trasportation because of the oil spill last summer, but I found that I really enjoy riding my bike. 15. I love my volkswagen beetle and I really miss driving it! (I hate when people tell me my car looks like it is sporting Vikings colors.) 16. Lacross and the Roller Derby are really the only sports I don’t hate. (Though I admit I am a bit curious about the new player from Japan that just joined the MN Twins…) 17. I think one of the worst thing in the world is having to pretend you are happy and make other people happy when you aren’t feeling well. 18. The supplies for my artwork are extremely expensive, and I sometimes feel guilty about spending the money on them, but that doesn’t really stop me. 19. I’m thinking about artwork pretty much all the time. 20. I am very easily intimidated. It takes a lot, but I usually get over it. 21. I love handwriting, and I still keep a handwritten journal. 22. I love hugs. 23. I’m really very nervous about the project I’m currently working on.
24. I am usually a very happy, upbeat person, but sometimes, I just need someone else to be upbeat for me. 25. My granny started me collecting Russian dolls when I was little. My collection is growing.
