liebster

I was nominated for the liebster award by the beautiful Usagii and I couldn’t be more excited. Not only is this a great way to get to know fellow bloggers, its super fun to read peoples responses to the questions!

These are the Rules:

♥ You Must Post 11 Facts About Yourself
♥ You Must answer the 11 questions from the person that nominated you
♥ Choose 11 bloggers you would like to nominate
♥ Create 11 questions to ask your nominees
♥ Let them know they are nominated!
♥ No Tag Backs!

So here goes nothing!

11 Facts about me:

I’m afraid of Birds
Figured I’d start off with one that most people find ridiculous, especially because I live in a city (pigeons everywhere). lol I have no idea where this fear stems from or when it started, But it can actually be quite embarrassing when a pigeon flies too close and I flinch or run away in fear in front of people I don’t know that well. -_-

I am Pescetarian.
This basically means I do not consume any meat other than seafood. But for the most part I generally follow a vegetarian diet, with the occasional sushi dinner or tuna sandwich. ^.^

I have 19 piercings.
This may come as a surprise, because all of them are not readily visible. But as of right now I have My tongue, labret (or monroe/madonna), 11 all together in my ears (my lobes are also stretched to 7/16), 3 micro dermal anchors in my lower hip, navel, septum, and my left nostril pierced. With that said I haven’t gotten anything new pierced in over 2 years, not that I would necessarily need to. lol

I can’t drive
At all. I have no desire to learn, and to be quite honest I don’t think I trust myself behind the wheel. *shrug* Back in high school when everyone was excited about getting their learners permit and taking driving lessons I was more concerned with trying to get a job so that I can do more shopping. LOL
Luckily driving isn’t really a necessity here on the east coast.

I’m socially awkward.
I just can’t help it. I initially suck at making friends because I’m not one to actively seek out people to befriend, because its hard for me. It has a lot to do with the fact that I clinically have an anxiety disorder, but try telling that to someone you have just met! Most people just right me off as stuck up/holier than thou because of it, and that’s simply not the case. That’s not to say I don’t have any friends, but it takes a lot more effort for me to gain friends than the normal person due to this issue + people writing me off as arrogant before attempting to get to know that I’m actually the complete opposite.
(whew, that was actually harder to admit than I thought)

Pigs are my favorite animal.
I just find them to be so freaking cute, and can’t ever seem to understand it when I hear people calling them ugly or dirty. I mean what animal on a farm doesn’t get a little dirty??? lol Also they are actually really intelligent so they can probably understand you pig haters that call them names when they’re in ear shot, shame on you hurting a poor pig’s feelings!

I Hate any type of schooling or class.
It’s not that I don’t like learning, but school bores me to no end. Growing up I always had good grades, yet my only motivation for going to school was to see my friends. This carried on into college, and after my second year, and a cosmetology course, I dropped out all together. Just wasn’t for me, and I’ve never been happier. (Thankfully I had a full scholarship or I probably wouldn’t be as happy right now.)

Speaking of College…

I gained 35lbs during my stint in college. D;
Screw the freshmen 15, I also gained a sophomore 15! I have since lost the weight, but spending my entire life relatively thin and then suddenly gaining that much weight was pretty traumatizing for me and I still cringe looking back at old pictures or reminiscing about the times when I was heavier. ahhh. Incredibly superficial I know, but what girl isn’t to some extent?

I don’t drink alcohol.
More because I don’t like the taste of alcohol than anything else. Not that this is that big of a fact or anything, but most people my age drink socially and that’s just not me. Yep, I’m forever the sober friend at the party. (Too bad I don’t know how to drive!) lol

I went to boarding school.
All through elementary school until 7th grade I was in a private boarding school. Which probably contributes to my social awkwardness because for those almost 10 years I never had to make new friends as I lived with my friends, and them leaving or new kids arriving was rare as spots in that school were coveted & based on smarts. I did leave after 7th grade though because my family started to notice that I was becoming more withdrawn/disconnected from them. (Could you blame me? Try being a kid living with no parents for 9 months out of the year). I’m glad I left when I did though, otherwise the damage could be worse! heh

I’m allergic to Tree Nuts.
Which pretty much means I’m allergic to all nuts, but people often confuse this with a peanut allergy. In reality Peanuts aren’t even nuts, they are legumes which is closer to a bean than a nut. I happily enjoy Peanut Butter but sadly I have absolutely no idea what Nutella tastes like because it would kill me. (T.T)

Questions From Usagii!:

Who is Your Hero?
My grandfather was and still is my hero. I’m still amazed at how selfless and caring he was to any and everyone around him. It’s rare to come across people like this in everyday life.

If you were stranded on an island what one item would be a must have? (Excluding the obvious food and water!)
Toilet Paper. No matter what, I can’t imagine having to wipe myself with a leaf. no sir.

What interesting talent do you have?
I can sing. That isn’t that interesting though. Guess I’m boring. boo. >.> lol

Where is your favorite place to shop?
I don’t have a specific favorite place, my favorite clothing pieces come from all over the place. Be it Ebay, The Thrift Store, Bloomingdale’s or Forever 21.. if it works, then I’ll most likely buy it.

If you were to be given the option to have your life be a movie and you were the star, what movie would you pick?
Grease! For sure. Despite the hurricane, I’d still be Sandy in a heartbeat. Or even Betty Rizzo if given the chance.

Where do you want to visit most in the world?
Paris, It’s the hopeless romantic in me.

Winter or Summer?
Definitely Summer, my most fond memories were made in the summer. I also hate being cold.

What odd thing do you like about yourself?
I like the way my toes look. odd enough?

Dream job?
To be able to do something I enjoy doing while also making a fortune.
I’m doing something I enjoy now, but I can’t say I’m making a fortune. lol

What is your biggest motivation(s)?
The future. I never want to feel like I’m lost with nothing to look forward to in life.

If this was your last day on earth how would you spend the day?
Eating yummy food with people or even just the person I love, either doing things I enjoy or experiencing all of the things I have never done.

    I know what you mean by being socially awkward! You would think I would be use to it since my dad was in the military but nope and everyone thinks that I’m “stuck up”. Not true just uneasy about being put on the spot. I feel your pain.
