Ok, so following on from [ profile] louiseoh18 's random things post of yesterday, I'm doing one of the random things about me too. Which, I dunno, seems a little conceited, maybe, but if I can't talk about myself here on my journal, than there's probably nowhere I'd feel comfortable about talking about myself. (And isn't that the God's honest truth.)

Ok, so here we go:

  • I have a rather extensive vocabulary, but I hate using it, cos it makes people uncomfortable.
  • Usually, the things I adore the most are things that I shied away from for quite a while. Jury's still out over whether I'm right about doing that or not.
  • I never gush about classics. I usually ramble about the underappreciated stuff.
  • I have an almost psychic link with JA, and the Shorty finishes my sentences. I reckon I must be predictable. :-)
  • Crisis management is my strong point.
  • I love my family more than anything, but that encompasses a lot more people than just blood relatives.
  • hate stupid humour. With a passion.
  • I love learning things. I hate being tested.
  • I'm on a mission to change up my life. I think this may be because everything's changing around me so much lately.
  • I started reading when I was 3 or so, and haven't stopped since.
  • My drink of choice is flavoured water. I don't drink alcohol.
  • I can't watch Mars Attacks, it's given me nightmares since the first time I watched it. (I was 8, it was Halloween, and their heads exploded, ok?)
  • I'm open minded, but it's not something I used to be. I moved from changing people's ideas on things to observing why they thought them. I have my own opinions, but I don't like to tell people them unless they ask anymore.
  • I'm an awful procrastinator. I mean, really awful.
  • I am terrified of moving to Wales next year. Absolutely thrillingly excited, but freaking terrified.
  • I've been swearing since I was 7, and people still think it's out of character for me.
  • I'm a ridiculous Disney addict. Noone has beaten me at Disney Trivial Pursuit yet.
  • I generally crush on people, not looks. A smile, a quirk, a gesture... I'm odd that way.
  • When I get in the mood to clean, I can sweep through the entire house in a few hours. When I'm not in the mood, nothing gets done.
  • I think that there’s something in the air in Ireland that makes people insane. Someday, I’m going to prove it.
  • I have a ridiculously short attention span. Seriously, I’ve been doing 3 other things in between writing this out.
  • It takes a lot to get me to hold a grudge, but after I do, you’ve lost my trust.
  • I close every door of the room I’m in unless I’m alone in the building. Paranoia much?
  • I’m completely in awe of vegans, because it’s a principle that I believe in that I would never be able to do myself. I hate most vegetables and adore most types of meat.

...Was this 20 or 25? I may have to go back and take some out. But there you go, that’s me, in all my neurotic, messed up glory. Bye now!

Oh, wow, you would not believe the fights todays writers block question has produced with my friends. M swears by pirates, a how-can-you-beat-Johnny-Depp sort of thing. My other friend, LO, will not hear of anything but ninjas being the best ever. It's produced many fun times, especially during PE and M's ever violent badminton matches. You do not want that girl opposing you on a badminton court!!

On another note: I thought he would get better when he reached his teens. At any rate, I didn't think he could possibly get any worse than before.

I was wrong.

Is it wierd that the first thing I thought of when I heard the mice's working song in Disney's Cinderella - you know the line, "Leave the sewing to the women, you go get some trimmin'" - was that it was comlpetely sexist against Gus and Jacques? Bearing in mind I would have been about 5 at the time... I think I've got to be a lunatic. Ireland's getting to me.

Ok, so the unbelievable has happened. Well, not really unbelievable, but it's hard to realise that I'm actually done with school. In a forever sort of capacity. Well, apart from a little thing known and dreaded as the Leaving Cert, but hey, who's counting that? It's just... it's the longest I was ever in one school, and the best I've gotten to know people EVER. And it's kind of depressing to think that that's it. After 6 years, I'm gone, like I was never there. Well, we've left a poem to the staff (and apparently that's the first time it's ever been done), with the entire year's signatures. And a Baby Born named Crusty, who ended up symbolising something completely different from how he started out. Considering he started as a basketball, though, that's probably not a really bad thing. Other than that, there's nothing. Hard to imagine. But hey, onwards and upwards, right? Going to college could be fun, and who knows? Maybe I'll make it back there some day, for a reunion at least. So here's to the SHSS Class of '08, and may their dreams always be within reach for them.
