2009.0130.1758::That 25 Random Things Thing... if you give a crap.
Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you OR I've already read yours and think we have a lot in common.

Honestly, I'm not going to tag anyone because either you've already been tagged or you're getting tired of this whole thing...

  1. I've done this before, but with 100 things. Any item listed with a number is a reference back to the numbered item in that post.
  2. I'm a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), which means that I process stimuli to a greater degree than the average person, and the range between where I'm understimulated and overstimulated is far smaller. So from what I can remember of my childhood, my extreme introversion is not innate, but is a result of my high emotional sensitivity to ridicule when I was younger.
  3. I'm guessing that growing up as a minor minority in Miami didn't help the feelings of being on the outside of things.
  4. I'm ready to have children. I've been ready to have children since 1995.
  5. Despite a long hiatus of not writing, I still write poetry, but I'm also still convinced I'll never write anything as good as Abraham (41).
  6. That I've again experienced a situation where the woman that I love leaves me and starts dating a mutual friend (76) makes me all the more bitter (77).
  7. I still haven't gotten the black splotch on my back (96) checked, confirming (27).
  8. I should probably go see a psychiatrist, but (27).
  9. I weigh eighty pounds more than I did in high school.
  10. In 1991, my senior year of high school, I was 13th best in the nation amongst competing high school students at computing Matrices and Determinants. I can't for the life of me tell you what an eigenvalue is today, though.
  11. I've had unusually large tonsils my entire life. The dentist makes a point to talk about them every visit.
  12. When I was younger, I wanted them gone, because I heard that you got to eat lots of ice cream.
  13. As a result of (95), my opthamologist recommends that I not get LASIK, because of the potential that I may need further retinal detachment correction.
  14. Whenever I encounter a baby, toddler, child, and sometimes dog, cat, or turtle, I'll say, "Hey, how's it goin'?"
  15. I've had more than one person say that I bear a resemblance to Elvis Presley (granted, one guy was a panhandler). Frankly, I don't really see it.
  16. If I'm in the mood, I usually sing Elvis at karaoke. When I told one of my friends that if I ever did karaoke regularly, I'd only sing Elvis, he told me, "You can't do that; there's already an Asian guy who sings Elvis at karaoke." I knew immediately that he was talking about Ben.
  17. Despite a concerted effort by Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Queensryche to try to blow my ears out, I have a high sensitivity to sound, like being able to hear a car alarm or building construction from five blocks out, or not being able to sleep when a neighbor is playing music loudly.
  18. I've significantly curtailed my television watching from 17 hours weekly (81) to about 10.
  19. I'm 3/7ths of my way through my goal of standing on every continent. My next intended continent is Australia.
  20. I asked Greg, manager/bartender at the Independent, if he would ban me if I got into a fight at the bar. He replied, "I couldn't ban you because if you got into a fight, you'd have a really, really good reason." This made me feel very good for about five minutes.
  21. My favorite classical composer is Rachmaninoff. My favorite work of his is his Piano Concerto No. 2
  22. I keep learning that adult life is just like high school, and I wish everyone would cut that crap out.
  23. I have a tremendous amount of respect for people with unshakeable faith and morality like Tim Tebow and Danny Wuerffel.
  24. I am an emotional voyeur--I like sites like Postsecret, Dear Old Love, and F*** My Life.
  25. I tried very hard to not be a whiny emo bitch putting this list together.

[User Picture]You should friend me.

Not that I write anything interesting because I am ultimately boring.
