I’ve taken up the Thirty Things challenge. Read more here.
Number one asks you to list 20 things about yourself. I can tell you, it was hard coming up with these. But it does help me learn more about myself in the process, which I think is the point of the challenge.
Anyway, here are my 20 “random” facts.
1. I’m a Muslim female in my 20s (more of an introduction than a random fact)
2. I love my family; I like most of them really and am able to tolerate the others
3. My friends also get a special spot in my heart (my aorta possibly or the left ventricle)
4. I like cleanliness
5. That being said, like Monica in Friends, I have a messy section in my cupboard
6. As you may gather from the previous point, I’m a fan of the sitcom Friends
7. I’m neurotic (like Monica Gellar)
8. I still need to find the Chandler to my Monica (you’re getting this Friends obsession, right?)
9. I’m not sure I know how to flirt
10. I’m also not sure I know when someone’s flirting with me
11. Cooking is a passion; my means of artistic expression if you will
12. I love baking, too (A woman’s place is in the kitchen, they say)
13. If you ever say the above phrase to me, and you’re male, I’ll probably kick you in the ****
14. But , figuratively, since I detest violence; I’d rather beat you with wit and humour than with a stick or knobkerrie any day way of the week
15. Anyone who can make me laugh will be accepted into my life (laughter being the best medicine and all that)
16. Lately, the show Say Yes to the Dress fascinates me; not the dresses so much as the psychological effects other people have on the bride’s willingness to buy a dress she loves (but they possibly don’t)
17. I love shopping; I have unintentionally expensive taste but I won’t frown on a good sale/bargain
18. I judge people based on their grammar
19. I would love to travel more. Spain and Italy are two nations near the top of my list of destinations to travel to.
20. The final random fact about me is that I find lists like this incredibly hard to complete *pats self on back for coming up with this list*
Over to you. I want to know 20 things about you. Yes, you. The person reading this.
