Ten random facts about me

Hello there beloved,

I am so excited to finally have my own tiny space on the internet where I can share my writing. This has honestly been a long time coming and I figured what better way to introduce my website than with a post listing a few things about me that not a lot of people know.

1. I get really emotional when I eat. Some people do this in the shower but for me, my brain just decides it wants to have a mental breakdown while I’m eating a sandwich.

2. I have pica. This is a condition that makes people crave things of no nutritional value whatsoever. Basically my body nags me for the strangest things: On good days I just nibble plastic pen caps and crash ice between my teeth every couple of minutes. On bad days I struggle with stopping myself from destroying termite homes and shoving the dirt down my throat.

3. I used to draw comic books. Most of my friends already know that instead of solving math in school,  I used to fill my notebooks with stories and poems. But only few of them know that I sometimes drew these storylines from start to finish. Sadly, I fell out of the habit after secondary school.

4. One of my favourite book genres is christian romance. I love sappy love stories and trust me it doesn’t get sappier than one revolving around God. A happy ending is almost always guaranteed but not without some thrilling trials and tribulations.

5. I have consumed an entire loaf of bread in one sitting on multiple occasions.

6. When I was 13 I got into carpentry. I made a stool, a briefcase, a jewellery box and several picture frames from scratch.

7. I was also into amateur bead art for a few years. I made a lot of jewellery; necklaces, waist beads, bracelets, earrings, you name it. I even decorated my notebook covers with bead patterns.

8. I love sweatshirts so much that sometimes I wear them on extremely hot days and just sit next to a fan.

9. I have regular sleep paralysis and a lot of lucid dreams.  Suffice to say the quality of my sleep suffers. It can be so intense that sometimes the line between dream and reality can be blurred for a few hours even after I wake up. I go about my day before fully realising that “oh that was a dream,” or the complete opposite, “oh man, that wasn’t a dream at all.”

10. I sometimes spend hours of my day watching animated YouTube videos of blackholes devouring stars because I think it’s cool.

There you have it, ten odd things about me. What are random things about you that not a lot of people know? Be sure to share in the comment section.

      I’m not so sure what you mean by other people. Most of the content on the blog will be about my personal experiences and things in that line.
