20 Facts About Me

My HS friend Dionne is doing a blog challenge for 100 days. In last night's post she did 20 Facts About Me. So I decided to try it. This may be a daunting task since I am pretty quiet about myself. I'd rather sing the praises of others like Dionne. I admire her tenacity. So here is my attempt.

1. Was born in Brooklyn NY
2. I'm a middle child. I have an older sister and a younger brother.
3. I am currently married. If you knew me in my 20s and younger, you'd know that this is out of character for me. However, marriage seems to suit me.
4. I am highly sensitive. I don't act like it when you meet me. I internalize things and get bent out of shape in my head or when I'm by myself.
5. I don't like to share a lot. This is an admission I never really told people. Being a middle child you got hand me downs and then had to had down again. I never really got to keep much for myself. Hence, why I don't like to share. But, over the years I have gotten better at sharing.
6. I take care of others better than myself. I am currently trying to take care of myself more.
7. I am stubborn. I will admit that. I'm set in my ways. I get it from my parents.
8. I don't like to be rushed. I will slow down even worse just to spite you.
9. I don't like anyone in my personal space. I get very irritated if someone's in it. Why do I live in NYC?
10. I love curling up with a good book. You can find me in a corner, curled up with my iPad.
11. I like playing video games even though lately it's been regulated to my iPhone only.
12. My favorite and spirit animal is the Tiger. Can't you tell from my blog's name? My aim name? My email address?
13. I am an accountant by trade. But I'm so much more.
14. I've lived in California for 8 years. I hated living there when I was there, but now I kind of miss it.
15. I don't take rejection well. But I do use it as strength to prove you wrong.
16. There are days where I just want to be in my own world. Don't want anyone talking to me. Just me, the couch and my thoughts.
17. I have OCD when it comes to papers. I don't like other people writing on my documents. It bothers me to no end.
18. I HATE the cold weather. Give me 80 degrees & more any time. I can also do without the humidity.
19. I'm a gadget-aholic. I love gadgets.
20. I so want to be a vampire!! I don't want to die. I want to live forever. I think I would be a good vampire. I'd just feed off of the wicked & leave the innocent alone. In this world, I wouldn't starve.

Do you think you can list 20 things about yourself?
