Twenty-Five

The lovely Sonshu has tagged me to complete a list of 25 things, facts, habits or goals about little, old me.
  1. Physics is the love of my life!
  2. I used to be a girl guide when I was a teenager and now volunteer as a leader at a local girl guide unit
  3. Cross-stitching and sewing is one of my hobbies. Even though it's uncool
  4. I still don't know how to drive *blush*
  5. My party trick as a youngster was fitting my big toe in my mouth without assistance
  6. Despite my 7 years at university, my ultimate goals in life don't concern my career but revolve around having children and becoming a wonderful housewife to a husband I cannot live without
  7. In the last 3 years, my normal day consists of playing with "lasers" (no, not humping them)
  8. Whilst some might say I'm cursed, I love what makes me, me; red hair, freckles, glasses, a Brummie accent, Physics (to PhD level!), hayfever, lactose intolerance and circulation problems ;)
  9. I hadn't travelled to my country's capital (London) until I was 22 years old!
  10. My 3 pet hates are drivers who don't indicate, the sound of people dragging their feet when they walk and unneccesary untidiness
  11. I never had a single detention during my school years
  12. I hate bullies with a passion! And vow to stick up for a child if I ever see them getting bullied
  13. I love laughing, singing and dancing!
  14. I failed my GCSE I.T. - does that mean I don't know how to use a computer?  :P
  15. I once dated a guy I met on the internet, but it really didn't go well
  16. I consider my parents, sister and 2 brothers my 5 all-time best friends
  17. If I had to choose to have one cosmetic procedure, it would be a nose job
  18. [I had to remove this point due to it not being appropriate for some of the people now reading this blog]
  19. My favourite number is 2
  20. At every available opportunity, I avoid talking on the telephone. But I worked in a call centre for a year
  21. I have a personality disorder; Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. This is not the same as OCD
  22. [I had to remove this point due to it not being appropriate for some of the people now reading this blog]
  23. My birthday is on the 23rd, and my year of birth, (1985) adds up to 23; 1+9+8+5 = 23, my office room number is 2.323 and I sit at desk number 23. Has anyone seen the film "The Number 23"?!
  24. When I walk up stairs, I have to count them
  25. I turn 25 in less than a month!
It actually wasn't that easy to choose 25 things!

Now it's your turn, so I tag anyone who fancies doing this and hasn't already. So, if you're reading this right now, consider yourself tagged.

I'd love to learn 25 things about you so feel free to let me know where I can read your post!

  4. Gingerella? I love it!

    I love that your family members are your "all time best friends". I love that you call them pet hates...we say pet peeves in the US (sounds lame). I also love that you count stairs when you walk up. As a dancer, I always am counting in 8 counts when I walk... :)

  5. @Amber: yup, red hair is fab! I have actually considered dying my hair more red.

    @Michelle: thanks! I do! I love my freckles and actually wish I had more.

    @Sonshu: It was very fun to do actually so I'm glad I did it, too. Thanks for the tag!

    @Patty: Oh yehhh, I've heard pet peeves before and think a select few people in the UK call it that, too. It's not lame, it has alliteration!

  6. Counting steps? Thought that was something only I did! I'm weird, I get disappointed when there isn't an even number of steps, cos it disrupts my two-steps-at-a-time rythmn lol what a nerd

    Guess I'll get started on my list...

  7. See, I wasn't going to mention that part; I too feel a little put out if I get to the top and it's an uneven number. Or if I know the correct number e.g. like the ones in my house, that I counted a million times when I was younger, but have somehow counted the wrong! LOL. It is nerdy but I like being nerdy.

    I look forward to your list SaiiMan!!
