I stumble over the "10 Day You Challenge" recently and love the idea behind the challenge. Because that this is a personal blog I decided to take part of it. Sadly I didn't find the initiator of this challenge. If anyone can help feel free to leave a comment.
Let's start … 10 secrets about me.
1. I'm social phobic
Maybe this sounds a bit weird because I have a blog and talk to many people around the world through twitter. I have difficulties to get in touch with people around me. I have just a small amount of friends, but the few are the most important persons next to my family.
2. I'm divorced
Hubby is already the second one. The first marriage last 4 years and ended not "nice", sadly. This end was the trigger for my mental health to crash. I'm already struggling with it.
3. I'm a "gamer chick"
I love computer games, especially World of Warcraft. I've met some really lovely people in this online game and some of them also in "real life". Sometimes I spend the most of my time standing around in one of the cities, talking to some guild members.
4. My original hair colour is ash blonde …
… and I hate it. That's why I dye my hair since the age of 16. Mostly they had a red shade but I had also a few black and brown phases.
5. I'm so clumsy
Really. I stumble over a sand grain. I bump my ell bows at doorknobs, twist my ankles while walking on a clean ground, bump my head at cabinet doors … and so on. I'm the muggle version of Nymphadora Tonks.
6. I have ADHD
I'm a so-called "ADHD adult". I became the diagnose last year. It explains a lot … Since that time I can handle some of my quirks a bit better.
7. I never sleep without earplugs …
… because hubby snores. Now I sleep very well and he wanders on the sofa at night because I'm snoring. I would give him some of my earplugs but he wont. His fault.
8. I don't like summer (and the sun)
Don't get me wrong … I love the sun on my skin and how it smells then. But I have a sun allergy and become small itching spots, specially on my decollate. With it I'm very pale so I look like a lobster after 15 minutes. That why I'm always trying to avoid the sun. I don't like it too hot. My favourite seasons are spring and fall, when the weather is good, the sun is shining at 20 degrees (C) and I have a shadowy place to stay.
9. When I'm ill and have a temperature I have hallucinations
I think I have it from my dad. He hallucinate also when he have temperature. I have this since I was a little child. I remember that I was so angry about my parents once, because they place a small closet at a place in my room where I was building my castle. I was crying and screaming and my parents really helpless in this moment. I hoped that it will be better when I grow up but it don't. Last year I accuse hubby that he stole my eye and kept on and on until he gave me my eye back.
10. I kill plants
Don't ask me to take care of your flowers while you are on vacations. They will die. I have a "black thumb". Even cactuses commit suicide in my hands.
This was "10 secrets", the first part of the "10 Day You Challenge". I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing.
Love, Mel … xoxo
