25 Things About Me

  1. I think crying is for wimps – I only ever remember crying about four times in my life.
  2. I get very seriously offended when people don’t believe what I say or call me a liar.
  3. I was pleasantly corrupted by an 11year old girl when I was 9.
  4. I’ve a deep passion for 80’s music. I’m almost a male version of those burnt out 80’s chick you still see walking around with big hair and leggings on.
  5. I don’t like my smile and have only ever seen three photos of myself smiling which I liked.
  6. I miss rollerblading to work in London.
  7. I get hot under the collar when I smell pumpkin and apple cinnamon candles (both at the same time).
  8. I feel horrible waking up if I sleep more than four hours a night.
  9. I used to have a recurring dream where I could hover / fly horizontally about three feet off the ground by jumping into the air and straightening out, and have always wanted to see if I could, but am too afraid of breaking bones.
  10. Most of the time I successfully handle emotional problems by ignoring them. Dealing with them head-on doesn’t work for me. If I just ignore something I’m all good!
  11. I’ve gone hungry more than once so I could lend a friend $10 to buy tampons.
  12. I think drug dealers of any sort are unpleasant people who deserve a bullet and a ditch.
  13. I get irritated when people act surprised when they learn I’m half black.
  14. Forgiveness is not in my nature. I can let things slide, but I don’t forgive and never forget.
  15. I don’t love often but when I do I fall like a ton of bricks – it’s all or nothing.
  16. I fall in love far easier than I fall out of love.
  17. I’ll forever be ashamed that I once told my mother her hair was embarrassing me when she visited me at More House about 15 years ago.
  18. I want to do extremely harmful things to my high-school bully Anthony Marr.
  19. EVERYONE who’s ever done me wrong in my life has been female – with the obvious exception of that bastard Charlie Hursey.
  20. I very badly want more children, even though common sense is telling me I shouldn’t yet.
  21. I dwell on the past about 10 hours out of every day.
  22. All I ever want now a child, a house made out of bricks, and a kickass Yamaha Clavinova piano.
  23. I feel most comfortable when I’m sad – it’s what I’m used to.
