I'm in major freak-out mode right now because I'm dreadfully behind in just about everything. Which means NO ONE LOOK AT MY NANO WORDCOUNT RIGHT NOW, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. (In case you're interested, it's dreadfully low because mischievous squirrels have been popping out of nowhere and setting back my wordcount. THIS IS THE TRUTH, I SWEAR.)
Anywho. I apparently haven't posted in over a week? Yeah. Which means I had to scrounge for time to write this post whilst hiding away upstairs from people and being an antisocial dragon. #introvertproblems
I've been seeing this link-up called Top Ten Tuesdays floating around on a bunch of friends' blogs and decided that last week's looked fun. (I'm totally on time. :P)
So I hereby present to you...twelve random things you don't know about me (and probably don't wish to).
And you're getting a dozen facts about me because I'm awesome and can't be confined to just ten. *cough*
#1. I can't stand the sound of someone biting into a popsicle. Yeah, this one's a little weird. Every time someone bites into a popsicle, my skin crawls. UGH. It's like nails against chalkboard. DO NOT BITE INTO A POPSICLE IN MY PRESENCE, PEOPLE.
#2. I actually get stressed out when I don't read books fast enough. By habit, I'm not an extremely fast reader. It usually takes me a while to read a book. *says the one who just read a book in less than two days* So if I only read three or four books a month, I actually get stressed out. BECAUSE EEP, I NEED MORE BOOOOKS. I must read them all!!!
#3. I'm a surprisingly stubborn person. Oh, you don't like the snow, do you? Allow me to hand you a list of the reasons why snow is actually the best thing ever. Nothing you say will convince me otherwise. (Yes, I have actually gotten defensive about my love of snow before. XD)
#4. I don't like tea. SOWWY. I just really don't like the taste of tea. I finally tried hot tea for the first time and...nope. I can't make myself drink it. (Unless it's raspberry tea, which tastes nothing like tea so that's why it's good.)
#5. Having a schedule makes me stressed but not having one also makes me stressed. Very contradictory, I know. But when I have a schedule, I can become EXTREMELY stressed if I don't follow through with everything exactly as I had it laid out. On the other hand, if I'm out of my normal routine, I become even more stressed because GAH, EVERYTHING IS SPONTANEOUSLY SCARY. And that probably made no sense at all. XD
#6. I like to sleep with a flat pillow. Is that normal? Because I actually traded my pillow for my sister's flat one. (Still, hotel pillows are the best. I love it when my head will just sink into it. *sighs*)
#7. I tend to get very claustrophobic. Which means crowds are a big no-no. As are couches with a bunch of people squeezed onto it. NO THANKS. And let's not forget airplane seats. Those are always loads of fun. :P
#8. I really want to go zip-lining someday. I am somewhat of a daredevil (though you'll never catch me sky diving) and have always really wanted to zip-line. It just looks like so much fun!
#9. I hardly ever sunburn, tan, freckle, or get mosquito bites. My skin seems determined to stay a ghostly white color. (Except I did get sunburned a couple weeks ago. But it was only the fourth time in my life so yesh.)
#10. I don't like soda. I KNOW, I'M A STRANGE CREATURE. But carbonation and I don't get along. We just have a mutual distrust, I s'ppose. Oh, but I will occasionally drink Sprite! So I'm not completely hopeless. XD
#11. I will give virtual hugs but actual physical hugs are not my thing. I guess I just don't like people touching me. Or my books. Or really anything that I own. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
#12. I have double-jointed knuckles and thumbs. This fact is both intriguing and disturbing. And I also crack my knuckles, which apparently bothers a lot of people.
(Also, I just realized that I didn't finish this in time to add it to the link-up widget. D: Aw man.)
