Interesante Facts

Let's try this again. I tried doing a 30 day meme before. You know, the one when you have to write a letter each day? Blah. It was boring. This one is more my steelo.

DAY 01. A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself:

1. I cannot drink water without having ice in it. Let me explain, if I get a bottle of water, I have to put it in the freezer until it's icy. I then crush it and drink/chew the water and ice. I think it's something I picked up when my anemia was super bad. Don't worry, I am back on my iron supplements.

2. Shopping is my therapy. Whenever I am bored or sad I can sit on the computer for hours and just shop around. I call it screen shopping, kinda like window shopping. It's really sad lol but it helps. I guess it works for me like squeezing a stress ball works for others. It's not a problem because I don't actually buy the things every time I do it. Good self control *pat on back.

3. Sometimes when I am reading a good book, I get really attached to the characters. I remember when I was reading Stephenie Meyer's The Host (last year) I took my sweet time reading it because I really loved the people that I was reading about lol. As lame as that sounds, it's happened to me a lot! Which is why I don't mind re reading books. It's like reuniting with old friends.

4. My favorite color is black. I don't know why, but it has been that color for the past what? Five or Six years?

5. I love eating Lays or Wise potato chips with slices of cheddar cheese. I guess it's the bitter taste of both?

6. I recently learned that I hate when people crack their knuckles around me. It just sounds very painful and not natural.

7. A goal of mine is to have a bank account for when ever I want to go away. I really want to go to Paris but that will have to wait since its very expensive. Some day!

8. I've had over 30 stitches.

9. I used to be really good at drawing but somewhere along the way I lost my inspiration. I sometimes sit down and try, but it's not the same. Maybe with practice it'll come back to me.

10. When my family and I moved from the Dominican Republic to New York by plane, I don't know what happened to my ears but I can make this clicking noise with them. It's something only I can hear unless I press my ear against someone else's ear, when I do it that person can hear it too. Really strange. It used to annoy the crap out of me, but I got used to it.

11. I don't like my laugh lol, it's very dorky.

12. Growing up, I used to be a tom boy. I used to love wrestling and watching it, I dressed boyish. I blame it on growing up with my brothers. My mother was never one into the latest trends, so I'd dress like my bros. I still to this day prefer yoga pants (sexy version of sweats) and a fitted t shirt. Which back then were regular sweats and a big tee.

13. I still cry every single time I watch any Selena footage. I'm sure I am not the only one to always ask "Why?"

14. I take care of my things. I was upset when I bought a new itouch to replace my stolen one, and saw that it no longer came with the screen protector lol. I have things from over a decade ago that still look like new. Which is why I don't like to lend things out. I learned the hard way no one will care for your things like you do. I know they're just "things", bleh.

15. My favorite drink is h20.

* con mucho amor, c i n d y.

I really feel you on number 3. I get attached to characters too! lol. Once I finished reading Half of a Yellow Sun (my all time favorite book) I actually missed the characters. It's a must-read;)
