Today marks the start of yet another attempt in doing a whole months of blogging. Also known as NaBloPoMo. It will be my third time doing it (read about 2017 and 2018). It’s always fun to come across new blogs, engage more and spent more time writing. So if you want to join let me know. And as tradition has it I kick of my NaBloPo month with a fun post about 10 things you don’t know about me. Here we go:
1. I am voice conscious
Meaning if I can’t listen to a voice I can not bear to be in it’s vicinity – if I can help it. It makes me aggressive and unpleasant to be a round. This is one reason why I never watched Sex in the City. For the life of me I can not listen to Sarah Jessica Parker. Same thing with Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy. Also a couple podcast are just not for me even though the content would be so interesting.
2. I fell off a chair lift
Unfortunately this is no joke. It was my second or third year skiing and the first time using a chairlift. Before that I’ve only used platter lifts. I was nervous how to get on or even off. So was my mom who was riding with me. I ended up only sitting on the edge and once the ascent started I was lifted of the ground , well I dropped. It was already high like two or three meters. Lucky for me there was a snow pile so it was a soft landing. But it took me a couple years to give it another try. Later on I managed to take chairlifts with a snowboard. So I guess no matter how deep you fall always get a back up.
3. I always open my mail right away
Most likely you’ll find me ripping open envelopes while walking up to my apartment. Unless it’s some very important mail. Like a letter from a person and I really want to have time reading. The other thing I don’t open is invoice mail that arrives monthly. Other then that I need to know what it says right away. Curious much… Might be!
4. I can’t wear beanies, hats or such things
While I often love the look unfortunately I always look like I am just coming from chemotherapy. However I do look pretty good with glasses – don’t need any though.
5. I find everything with zombies rather annoying
Once I realize a movie has zombies in I am bored. It’s just stupid. I find aliens much more believable. Or any sort of super hero, wizard or magical creature. Or vampires – well you could argue they are some sort of zombies … but at least they usually look good.
6. I snuggle my hot water bottle most nights
Yep, true thing. I actually have scars from hugging it too tight and burning myself during the night. But it’s so cozy and warm…
7. I have never stayed in a hospital.
Lucky me I’ve never needed to stay in a hospital over night. Not saying I haven’t spent a night in a hospital but it was sitting beside a bed. I honestly hope I didn’t jinx it by writing it down.
8. I only eat salted popcorn
There used to be a time when I had no idea salty popcorn excists. That was pre-1999. Then I took a trip to the U.S. to spent an exchange year. First time having popcorn I was utterly confused as it was salty. After the initial shock of not eating what you expect I never went back to sugared popcorn. Unfortunately it still isn’t much common in Germany.
9. I recognize people by their hair
I guess everyone has some sort of key features to differentiate people when meeting them for the first time. For me it’s hair. I usually know how it looks and what style it was. So when we would meet a second time and in between a color change happened or just ponytail to open style … uhhh I might not recognize you again. Sorry…
10. I don’t peel potatoes
I remember a lunch with my grandparents and my grandma didn’t take of the peel from her potatoes. When I asked her why she explained you could eat it and during the time of war they always did. So for me it was a challenge to give it a try. I was pre-school back then I think. I believed I did something cool by not peeling them anymore. Ever since then I resist peeling potatoes. It’s just boring and such a waste of time. And it really doesn’t taste that different.
Well, that’s it for this year. If you liked this kind of post you might be interested to read part I, part II, part III and part IV version of this post. I’d also love to hear one fun fact about you in the comments. Looking forward meeting you.
