4. I confronted my (sexual) abuser at 21, came out to my family at the same time and a few days later, my grandfather died – into depression, I went

6. I have always been told that I look younger than my age. When I was about to graduate high school, people thought that I was 13. Now, 38, I have been told that I look younger than my girlfriend (30) and the average age I get is 27.

I ended being a teacher and have been having baby pangs like crazy (for the last year). I want to have a child before eggs shrivel up to the size of raisins. I am very maternal.

21. I am a freak when it comes to music knowledge

23. According to the girlfriend, people tend to light up when they talk to me.

24. Lately, I have had a lot on my plate with family and because of stress (and the person dumping everything on me), I have missed my period, and am going through a depression. Depression, because I feel that I am losing a loved one all over again (I already lost my Mom). Sometimes, I feel as though I am actor and someone gave me a shitty. shitty part (life).

25. I am supposed to be running errands and have responsibilities, but, the whole afternoon I have been watching Redtube.

3. I’m 19 now, still a virgin
4. I was lonely, insecure, and depressed through most of high school
5. I’ve used the Internet to express myself and find companionship when I felt I couldn’t otherwise.

8. I don’t have many friends, but I’m working on it.
9. I get annoyed by people very easily, but I’m working on it.
10. I have fairly high standards when it comes to genuinely appreciating people. They have to be intelligent, have a sense of humor, be able to see through people’s inane bullshit, have substance. In short, people who “get it.” I haven’t found many my age.
11. I’ve done things in moments of insecurity that I’m not proud of, but have gotten tremendously better with my confidence.
12. I’m not really athletic. I’ve never gotten seriously into sports, not big on exercise either.

14. I’m obsessed with macaroni and cheese, french fries, and Buffalo chicken.
15. I fucking love Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
16. I have a boyfriend who is 6’6’’ and I’m 5’3’’. It’s a little inconvenient.

20. My nails are almost always painted
21. I know almost every line to Home Alone by heart.

24. I have a soft spot for Frank Sinatra
25. I need to apply chapstick at least 3 or 4 times every day.

I apologize in advance for the length of this post. It’s not interesting. Feel free to skip.

1. 12 April 2009 – I saw a photograph of my dad’s father for the first time in my life.

2. For my Arthurian Romance course, I wrote a 30-page script for an episode of The Storyteller that retold the Quest for the Holy Grail using Muppets. My project included a cast list with black-and-white photos, stage directions, and cheesy jokes. It wasn’t until after my professor handed it back to me with an A+ and a happy face on the corner of the front page, that I realized I had earned a passing grade for turning in fan fiction.

3. Up through high school, 90% of my wardrobe was purchased from thrift stores.

4. My financial aid covers all my student fees with a surplus of funds in my bank account.

5. I had my first job interview on Tuesday.

6. My kindergarten teacher told my mother that I was not emotionally ready to move ahead in school. She ignored her. My first grade teacher told my mother that I wasn’t challenged enough and belonged in second grade. She ignored her, too.

7. I opted out of the GATE program at my school because I was terrified of taking the bus.

8. There’s a boy who attends (unless he graduated this past year) the high school near my university. He is one of the sweetest boys I have ever seen and he has the loveliest freckles. I’d tell him, but he’d probably think I’m a nut-job-wacko-stalker.

9. My mother is convinced that I am going to marry a person of Asian descent. I don’t date people based on ethnicity or cultural affiliation.

10. I have spent so much of my life with my brothers, that we often think the same things at the same time, finish each other’s sentences, share the same opinion, etc. “I knew you were going to say that / do that” is one of our most commonly uttered sentences.

11. I didn’t realize this until someone pointed it out to me, but when I am relating a story about a conversation I had with someone, I adopt their manner of speaking. If someone asks me to do an impression, however, I will sound nothing like the person I am attempt to imitate.

12. I have not seen one branch of my father’s family since I was two, another branch since I was a freshman in high school, and I have yet to meet the majority of my mother’s family.

13. When I was two, I wanted to be a butterfly.

14. The best paper I have ever written was for a Shakespeare course. I had maybe a page or two written the night before it was due and stayed up all night finishing it. I had an 8:00 AM poetry class and napped in the library until class at 3:00 PM. Then I went home, wrote my Chaucer final, and went to the airport at 4:00 AM to head off to an English convention. I’m never doing that again.

15. I have never broken a bone.

16. I struggled with breaking from routine when I was in elementary school (especially waving goodbye to my father in the morning, checking the front door was locked at night, and washing my hands.) My night routine was especially intrusive. I don’t remember when I finally stopped.

17. I have fainted twice.

18. I purchase art materials even though I have minimal (read here: no) artistic talent.

19. I have, to my embarrassment, thought I lost my glasses while they were still on my face.

20. I hate it when one word hangs on a new line. I edit posts to make them fit.

21. Over-the-counter medication has never managed even the dullest pain.

22. I can feel my pulse throughout my body at all times of the day.

23. I have cried for 24 hours with few breaks between sobbing.

24. (I’m tempted to delete this entire post.)

25. Fluther, to me, is a living novel. I enjoy going through archived questions… the Jellies here are a diverse cast of characters.

phoebusg's avatar

I’d be very bored by after the first few. Talking about myself is not the most interesting topic (to me).

1. I’m a humanist.
2. A realistic idealist.
3. Lives to improve lives.
4. I believe in extreme honesty and follow it.
5. I am working on my first book and hope to finish it soon.
6. One of my life goals is enabling student-driven education and upholding freedom of information.

Too lazy to compose the rest, but feel free to stalk me and make your own list!

I’m too boring to even post one.

ducky_dnl's avatar

Fine, I’ll answer this one truthfully.

1.) I’m 17 almost 18.

2.) I don’t understand the point of relationships.

3.) I’m scared of a lot of things but I hide it through humor.

4.) I have mini crushes on people, but when I think about it, they don’t mean much.

5.) I have a very bad opinion of myself.

6.) I was suicidal for a long time in my life. I still have urges, but I don’t act on them anymore.

7.) I have trust issues and I’m scared of men. :|

8.) Saying number 7 made me feel weird. Not a good weird either.

9.) People tell me that I’m a very happy person. Pfft!

10.) I loved one guy in my life and I didn’t get him. My faitytale was/is a nightmare.

11.) Yes. I am a very dark person.

12.) I like eating jalapeno peppers.

13.) This number is the day I was born. October 13th.

14.) I am infatuated with Sherlock Holmes.

15.) I have high standards when it comes to picking a boyfriend. I don’t settle for anything less than the best. These high standards make me seem like I’m always rejecting people, but what’s the point of dating someone I know I’m going to break up with in like two weeks?

16.) My favorite colours are blue and green.

17.) My favorite number is 2413. I usually put it in my photos and names and stuff. It’s my trademark. :P

18.) I get teased by my family a lot.

19.) I have been told I have depression, ptsd, trust issues, etc.

20.) I tend to be a logical thinker now-a-days. Ever since I lost my friend, I tend to look at things from a logical, rational point of view.

21.) I am straight.

22.) I have never been kissed.

23.) I hate 95% of the people I know.

24.) I can’t believe I’m doing this.

25.) I’m still in love.

I’ll give you a bonus one too.

…26.) 99% of the people that know me, have the wrong idea of me.

loving the fact that so many people are responding at the same time because they are all typing so much information!!

ucme's avatar

@ducky_dnl we share a birthday, useless piece of information but there you go

CherrySempai's avatar

Very nice question, I see it as a great challenge trying to come up with 25 things about myself. :)

1) I am a master at ping pong.

2) I count cards in Black Jack. (It’s not cheating. And it’s not like I can play for money, I’m 19.)

3) I have an extremely dry sense of humor. People online never understand it, unless they’ve met me in person before. It’s quite frustrating, really.

4) I abso-bloody-lutely love with Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory.

5) I hate being obsessed with things that other people are obsessed with. Maybe I just don’t want to conform, but really I’m conforming by trying not to conform…‘cause everybody wants to be unique. :) I can’t tell you how upset I was when Harry Potter got popular, I thought I had found a special book to be my own.

6) I am a Harry Potter fanatic. And that’s under-exaggerating.

7) I’m a double major in Accounting and International business.

8) I’m dying to buy colored contacts (I have the most boring brown eyes) but I’m scared of the contacts sliding into the back of my eyes. (I have 20/20 vision [apparently]).

9) I love commas and punctuation.

10) I love families. Talking about my family, learning about other people’s families, and being in a family.

11) 11 is my favorite number. 11:11 is a wonderful time for me. :]

12) I love interviews (kind of like this, haha) and look forward to jobhunting just so I can go to interviews.

13) I have a youtube channel where I make vlogs and make music videos that no one I know irl knows about, because I think that would be weird?

14) I’m slightly feminist, yet I hate how I’m one of the 3 girls in most of my business classes. “Pioneering woman” is not what I want to be remembered as.

15) I always want to do things the easy way, yet I enjoy it more during and after when I do it the hard/challenging way.

16) I used to think I was the biggest procrastinator in the world. Then, I thought, no I’m not. I just enjoy doing things later or right before they’re due. I don’t have to do them earlier so why bother. I like the pressure. ;]

17) I’ve always wanted to go to the WCG. (World Cyber Games) But my friends don’t play video games, and my parents would never approve, so I just haven’t.

18) I care what other people think. I base most of my decisions off what my mom would think, and that has stopped me from doing a lot of things that I would want to.

19) I want a 2010 Yellow Jeep Wrangler. It’s my dream car. (That’s why I find it ironic that my parents bought me a more expensive car when this is what I want. Oh well.)

20) I overuse the word “ironic,” and I mostly use it when it doesn’t fit. :)

21) I don’t drink. I don’t know why I don’t drink, but I just don’t.

22) I wish I were a good artist. Not even amazing or really talented, just somewhat good.

23) I pretend I’m a guy when I’m playing online games, because I do not like how most guys in games treat girls. It’s completely hypocritical of me, though, because I loathe when guys pretend to be girls just to get attention. :] Oh phooey.

24) I like to think I have almost perfect etiquette. It drives me insane when other people are lacking in etiquette, though.

25) I do gymnastics, and there’s nothing I love more. (Except maybe Sheldon. :])

Facade's avatar

1. I don’t really like taking photos but have recently become an aspiring commercial model. Stay tuned.
2. I have big hair.
3. I tend to analyze and criticize people, including myself.
4. I love chocolate Haagen-Dazs.
5. I have depression.
6. I don’t like to wear bright colors because I think they look cheap ( and I can’t afford the good stuff).
7. I did gymnastics for nine years. I also played soccer, volleyball, softball, swam, dove, and cheerlead.
8. As a result of my previous fact, I routinely pop every joint in my body throughout the day because they slip out of place.
9. I have a low tolerance for many things, including bullshit, ignorance, obnoxiousness, and stupidity.
10. As a result of my previous fact, I don’t have very, very few friends. Kinda sucks.
11. When I’m nervous, my vocal chords seize up, and my voice sounds extremely weird.
12. I have a laundry list of health issues, but I’m working on it.
13. I don’t have any dreams or goals. I just go with the flow, doing whatever comes my way.
14. I have a strong faith in God.
15. I forget that I’m only 5’1 until I look in the mirror. My boyfriend says it’s because I have a superiority complex.
16. I really like magic, musicals, and marijuana.
17. I probably smoke one averaged-sized joint in 3–4 days. Why people feel the need to get high on coke, heroin, meth, etc. is beyond me.
18. I work in a call center. I don’t like it.
19. All my life, I’ve tried to be like everyone else and fit in. I’ve yet to succeed at that.
20. Frasier is one of my favorite tv shows. I’m watching it now. I think it’s because I can relate to Frasier Crane so well.
21. I like women’s bodies and tend to stare.
22. I’m easily offended.
23. I can be pretty gross.
24. I cry a lot.
25. I hope you read this.

Sarcasm's avatar

01) Despite the fact that I know barely anything about them, I absolutely love foreign languages and outer space.
02) My dad tried to be an astronaut. Multiple times. I learned about this after I had developed a huge fascination for outer space.
03) I love science fiction.
04) The only class I’ve failed in college is a Computer Programming class. I’m not majoring in programming, but I am majoring in a computer-oriented field.
05) I took 4 years of Spanish in Middle/High school (Plus a year of being a TA). I’ve taken a year of German in college. When attempting to construct a sentence in either of those languages, I mix up words from the other.
06) I don’t love to read, but I am in love with libraries.
07) In 4 years of driving, the only ticket I’ve gotten is a parking ticket, I’ve been pulled over once (for a broken light), and I’ve never been in an accident.
08) My brother is the #1 reason why I avoid alcohol (he got arrested for public drunkenness). My sister is the #1 reason why I avoid drugs (I don’t like what she is).
09) The number of times I’ve been inebriated (in any amount) can be counted on a single hand.
10) I’ve never even touched a cigarette.
11) I’ve had breathing issues all of my life. When I was 6, they started telling me it was Asthma.
12) I care infinitely more about the wellbeing of animals than I do about humans.
13) The last time I can remember crying was in 3rd grade.
14) Never in my life have I had even the tiniest little bit of faith in the supernatural.
15) From 3rd grade until the end of my high school Freshman year, my best friend was extremely Christian.
16) In sophomore year, I was taking a medication, and one of its bad side effects (one of those “Stop using immediately if…” ones) was depression. I lived in a new town, I had no friends, I had terrible acne, I got picked on in school for multiple things, and I had some other issues. I never said anything because I desperately wanted to finish the medication. Luckily, my life brightened up in my Junior year when I went to a different school where I was accepted.
17) I don’t make friends. I’m too terrified of social encounters to even talk to people.
18) My closest (figuratively speaking) friend lives 3,000 miles away. She lives 20 minutes from where I lived as a kid.
19) I was born in Maryland, but never lived there.
20) I love it, but I don’t understand music one bit. I don’t know what a beat is, I don’t understand timings.
21) I have never danced.
22) I consider my political beliefs to be what Conservativism should be. Modern conservatives seem to be worried about the government getting too big and spending too money, but they seem to be all for spending trillions of dollars killing people across the globe, and spending billions of dollars for imprisoning non-violent drug offenders. Modern conservatives seem to want the government to stay out of our business, worrying about gun control, but they seem to be all for controlling what we do with our bodies, and whom we marry.
23) I’ve probably eaten fewer varieties of meat than most vegetarians. I’ve never had lobster, crab, shrimp, lamb. I’ve had fish fewer than 5 times. I’ve had steak once. I’ve had bacon, but never pork.
24) I spent 10 minutes reorganizing 24 of my facts to get them in an acceptable order. Relative to other posts I make, that’s a very short amount of time.
25) Drumroll please, we saved the best for last. I remain a virgin.

Is my post the biggest? I think my only competition is @Mama_Cakes

Number 26. First the first time (a moment ago), I did voice Skype with @tinyfaery. She was awesome and I definitely still have an innocent crush.

I really can’t imagine anyone having the patience to read this, I’m pretty dull. But I’ll wing it.

1. My real name is Stephanie, Neffie is just a nickname that I’ve had since I was a little girl. It stuck.
2. I hate driving.
3. I collect blue and white china.
4. My pets all have really stupid names because we have had so many over the years that I started to run out of ideas.
5. I was diagnosed with body dysmorphic disorder in 2001.
6. I asked a question about self esteem shortly after I joined fluther which was actually quite deceptive. I knew that I had BDD, I just needed an unbiased perspective to help me decide whether or not to go back to therapy.

7. I was diagnosed bipolar when I was 18, but never took any medication for it.
8. I am a vegetarian.
9. I know my way around an espresso machine and I hate people who don’t know what a cappuccino is when they order it. And then yell at me for doin’ it wrong because of their ignorance. It’s also annoying when I order a cappuccino and get a latte instead. I also hate when people say EXpresso and not espresso. I like coffee.
10. I like old things. Buildings, furniture, cameras, books, etc. I’ve started a small collection of old books which I hope to expand one day, and when I have my own place I want to furnish a lot of it with antique furniture.

12. I want to be a writer, but I constantly doubt my ability.
13. I’m terrified of being alone for the rest of my life.

24. I think about some pretty deep thoughts on a regular basis – the universe, the meaning of life, etc. This usually happens as I lie in bed trying to fall asleep. I can remember doing this since I was little – maybe around 4 or 5 or so.
25. I attended Catholic school for 8 years – from 5th to 12th grade. When I entered I was convinced I was going to hell and used to pray the rosary on a constant basis.

Oh. Oh. I’ll give you one more. I wanted and still kind of want to be a playboy bunny. Is that bad? lol

kenmc's avatar

I’ll try this. I sincerely doubt that I’ll get 25, though.

01) I like studying things that interest me. I obsess occasionally and try to learn everything I possibly can about a subject. It’s been dogs, dinosaurs, drugs, cameras, writing, and currently I’m on bicycles.

02) I love going for walks. Its a form of meditation for me.

03) When I become interested in a certain author/musician/filmmaker, I try to take in everything they’ve done. Once I’ve experienced as much of their work as I can, I go through droughts of consumption of art.

04) I love my family, but I don’t like them most of the time.

05) I’d rather play an SNES than a PS3.

06) I want to take pictures for a living… Hopefully ending up working for the likes of National Geographic or model photography. All I want is to capture light bouncing of interesting/beautiful things.

07) Despite having a social life (well, on and off) I have only dated one girl. It lasted for a year and ended on bad terms.

08) I will never find happiness in my home town.

09) I like drinking more than I should.

10) I like writing, but I find myself totally unmotivated in that department.

11) Not being able to know what time it is when I want to know drives me crazy.

12) I drink a lot of water. Sometimes a gallon a day.

13) I’m not a big fish in a little pond. I’m a lobster in boiling water. If I don’t get out of my habitat soon, I’ll die.

14) I attempt to write poetry and I do it without flowery language.

15) I am almost 22, jobless, not in school, and living at home. aka, I’m a kind of a loser.

16) Occasionally, I become manic and can’t settle down.

17) Like a lot of people, I didn’t have good esteem growing up. I rather hated myself and my appearance. Its still is something I struggle with sometimes.

18) I find humanity to be beautiful. That shouldn’t need further elaboration.

19) Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite writer.

20) I can’t believe that I have gotten to 20 so far.

21) When I had detention in high school, I spent the entire time reading the dictionary.

22) I have watched the movie, Mean Girls more than any straight male should.

23) My idols are Jack Kerouac and Edward Weston.

24) I prefer tea to coffee. Actually, I prefer tea to a lot of things.

25) I love you all.

Well, I did it. I never knew I was so conceited~

@boots I’d rather play a SNES, too.

Well damnit, I read the question & thought – no way in hell am I going to list 25 things about me. But, after reading through all the others I felt like I needed to contribute. So here goes. I’m about get personal, so hold on folks.

1. I cry every time I listen to the song, ‘Not Your Year’ by The Weepies.
2. I sometimes wish I had an incurable disease – so I could have an excuse for living recklessly.
3. I had a suicide attempt that was successful, until my room mate came home early & brought me back to life.
4. I am petrified of social groups consisting of people my own age.
5. Having grown up with no children around – I don’t know how to act around young kids, they make me very nervous.
6. My real dream job is to be a lowly errand boy for the staff of the show How I Met Your Mother.
7. Imagining that I know how to play violin causes a physical pain in my chest.
8. Writing this personal list is making my hands shake & sweat.
9. As stupid as it sounds to you, my biggest regret in life so far, is not going to a taping of the show Friends.
10. I took drum lessons for 10 years.
11. Despite being good at it, I hate playing the drums.
12. I once wrote an English paper on my old Underwood typewriter & mailed it to the teacher, when it was a requirement to be computer typed & emailed. I still got the A.
13. I have never hit anyone, but I have been hit a few times.
14. I have never broken a bone.
15. I have never won a sports trophy.
16. I won the grand prize in a school wide raffle. I was too chicken shit to go up in front of everyone in the school to accept the prize, so I gave my ticket to the person next to me. I didn’t care.
17. <—- Is my favorite number. On my first day of Kindergarten, all the desks were tagged with a name & number. My desk was #17 & I have always loved the number since.
18. This list is causing me to think about my past & about myself & it is very discomforting. I have spent years trying to suppress my childhood.
19. I have deleted this list & restarted it 3 times, because I don’t really want to post it. At number 20 now, so I feel like I have to finish.
20. I tell people I love the movie Casablanca, when I only like it a little bit.
21. Knowing I will never be the best in whatever occupation I choose makes it difficult for me to get up in the morning.
22. Simone_De_Beauvoir is the first gender non-conforming person I have ever met (online & in real life) She promised me a great big bear hug if I ever visit New York. One day, I hope to get that hug.
23. I secretly enjoy getting lurve on general questions. I like it when I provide the best answer.
24. I just highlighted this entire list to delete it again. I really am a chicken shit. Anyone have a set of big balls I can borrow? I think mine stopped producing testosterone years ago.
25. <—- Will be how old I am on the 12th of October.

DominicX's avatar

Knowing me, I’ll probably edit this a million times like I always do, but here goes:

1. I love classical music. I love it because it can convey deep and moving emotion without the need for words.
2. I’ve been to almost 20 different countries around the world.
3. I still sleep with a stuffed animal (while at home).
4. I have a fear of spiders and I’m quite claustrophobic.
5. I love gardens and flowers and anything to do with them; walking through a garden is one of my favorite things to do. I feel like there would be less stress and sadness in the world if more people learned to appreciate nature.
6. I question EVERYTHING. Nothing is immune from my questioning or criticism. :)
7. I used to be incredibly short and tiny.
8. Linguistics is my main passion in life, but I have no idea how it will tranlsate (hehe) into a career. I really do not know what I want to be when I grow up.
9. Melon is my favorite fruit; in particular: watermlon and cantaloupe.
10. Sometimes I just like to go on Wikipedia and read about anything. And I mean anything. Much of the time it’s history, but just the other day I was reading about what an “ester” was. Then after that I probably read up on Sophie Germain primes. I want to learn about everything, but I know it’s not realistic…
11. Sometimes I like to listen to cheesy Danish bubblegum dance music (like “Barbie Girl”).
12. I have synesthesia; I see single-digit numbers as having inherent color and I see a visual “map” of the numbers in my mind. Some letters and days of the week also have color.
13. I’ve memorized all the elements of the periodic table.
14. I know all the capitals and names of the U.N. member states and many additional names and capitals of dependencies and territories.
15. I have a very keen sense of direction and it’s unfathomable to me how some people don’t.
16. I love the wilderness and the outdoors; mountain biking in the woods is one of my favorite things to do.
17. I don’t like to “hate”. Even if someone really bothers me and other people would at that point say they “hate” the person, I have a hard time doing that. I don’t like to hate people.
18. I used to consider myself religious/theist but now largely consider myself agnostic. I see too many issues with theism. Issues that I can’t resolve.
19. I don’t think that just because something is “spiritual” and “personal” that that makes it immune from crticism. People often see this as me being “cold”. Maybe I am.
20. I have a very good relationship with my parents and my family.
21. I’m an extrovert and I enjoy people very much. I find people fascinating and I am always wanting to know more about them. (Hence why the answers in this question are so interesting to read). I find it difficult to label people as “stupid” or “sheep” or something like that. I think there is depth to everyone and people who don’t see it are just not willing to.
22. I can do backflips and cartwheels very well. :)
23. I hate pretense and hypocrisy more than anything else in the world. Sometimes I feel like I am surrounded by it.
24. I’m homosexual and I consider myself a pro-gay activist. I am staunchly anti-homophobia and if there is a “gay agenda”, you can bet that I support it.
25. I have OCD.

1. I think people care way too much about sex.
2. Picking my nose is a form of catharsis for me
3. Seeing veins in people’s skin scares me
4. I haven’t had any real friends for 4 years.
5. I have 4 official diagnoses: asperger’s syndrome (mild autism), myopia (nearsighted), nystagmus (eyes involuntarily bounce), and strabismus (cross-eyed)
6. I very diligently count calories and plan out balanced meals in my efforts to lose weight
7. I enjoy lightly tugging (non-painful) my pubic hairs when I go to bed and have been doing this since I was around 12 (I’m 22 now)
8. I also like to grow out my pubic hair so I can feel them pricking through my cotton underwear
9. I pace when I’m excited
10. I hate anime with the passion of a thousand million burning suns
11. I don’t find beauty in the human body
12. Clementines make me happy
13. I can’t stand hair in my razor
14. I’m lonely
15. I hate my boobs
16. I am terribly frightened of flies
17. I don’t know why my boyfriend cares for me at all
18. I find apple fanboys insufferable even though I quite enjoy my mac
19. I like to draw geometric shapes, like 3-D looking cubes and triangular prisms.
20. Ground meat really freaks me out because it looks like big meat spaghetti noodles to me
21. I think it’s sad people only care about causes that directly affect them
22. I was born on a solstice.
23. Microbiology is the best class I ever took
24. I tell my family I don’t eat chicken but I really do.
25. I wish I could wear sweatshirts all the time but the weather and society don’t permit it

1. I love Star Wars. It’s one of the biggest parts of my life. (I even got my own comic character. Knight Errant comes out October 13th! Shameless plug.)
2. I love the movie Labyrinth more than I love Star Wars.
3. I was born and raised in the country. I’ve been around a mass amount (usually over 63) of horses for my entire life. We just recently sold the family ranch, and I wish I was more upset than I am.
4. I have the same sized wrists as the one year old that I nanny for. I measured.
5. I haven’t told my parents that I love them in over 7 years. I refuse to consider my family a “family. We are essentially just housemates.

7. My GPA when I graduated high school was a .083.
8. I’ve been to 18 funerals in the past 10 years.

10. I drink more than I should sometimes and I’m a big fan of smoking pot.
11. I’m watching Lord of the Rings for the first time ever right now. I’m not sure what’s going on, but apparently Charlie from LOST is a hobbit.

13. My biggest fear is whats in the dark. (Second place goes to puppets and dolls.)
14. I love being naked and I’m not too shy.
15. I drive very fast. My radar detector is my sidekick.
16. I’m a vegetarian, but I hate most vegetables.
17. I’m not very skilled at keeping my room clean. There are mountains of clothes everywhere.

19. I have trust issues that I don’t think I’ll ever work out.
20. My biggest goal in life is to be a good mother.
21. I prefer being around animals, kids and the elderly more than I do people my own age.
22. We have over 7,000 VHS tapes and 500 DVDs in my house.
23. I’m not proud of the city I currently live in. I don’t talk to anyone here, and I can’t wait to leave.
24. I currently have over 500 illegal fireworks in my closet.
25. I hate myself.

7. I love fantasy books like no other.
8. While at GenCon this year, I walked right by Wil Wheaton and didn’t say hello because I didn’t realize it was him until I had already walked past. In my defense, he’s at least a decade older than when I saw him on Next Gen and he’s got a frickin’ beard.

10. My personal hero is one of my best friends.

22. I believe that no man will ever be greater than my grandfather.
23. I am the only person in my family who gets freckles.

1. I don’t buy the “I’m not that interesting” line – I’m interesting, and I’m going to write 25 things about myself. If you don’t think i’m interesting, it’s not my problem.
2. I have an arrogant streak that is more of a motorway.
3. I speak 2 languages well (English: native; Japanese CEFR B2)
4. I read 6 languages.
5. I believe that Italian and Spanish are dialects of Latin; they’re effectively the same language.
6. I usually leave ~90% of what I’m thinking out of what I say.
7. If my job wasn’t crucial to the company I work for, I’d have been fired months ago.

17. I can touch type.
18. I taught myself to write joined up because no-one else could.
19. I taught myself propositional logic at university because I missed 10 weeks of the course.
20. I believe Enlightenment philosophy started with Descartes and ended with Hume. Everything else is just a footnote.
21. I’m an empiricist of the verificationist stripe. truth isn’t truth unless it’s demonstrable. coherence theories of truth are just a cop out.
22. I’m prepared to cop out (sometimes). I’m comfortable with it.
23. I haven’t hit anyone since I was 13. I broke my hand doing it. Once was enough.
24.I’m left-handed and left-footed.
25. I’m ridiculously good at Mariokart on the SNES. I once took on all-comers for more than 12 hours and didn’t lose once.
25(a). I love fruit salads. I just wanted to add that.

1. I can spell “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” out-loud in under 30 seconds.
2. I’m super excited to get married in a few months.
3. I was in an outpatient program at a mental hospital.
4. I was the editor of my high schools Literary Magazine as well as a columnist in the school newspaper.
5. When I was in second grade, I scored way above all of the state tests in school and my parents got a letter from Johns Hopkins University asking me to take part in some study team.
6. None of my siblings are my full siblings. They are all half. Bryan and Ali from their dad, and Matt from my step-dad. I also have a half-sister on my dad’s side but I’ve never met her. This is probably because I barely even know my dad.
7. I was taken from my parents when I was a freshman in highschool due to abuse. My mom had to go to court to get me back and wasn’t even allowed to have visitation for a few months. When she got me back things were fine for a while and then the abuse started back up again.
8. I stress out really easily and get really bad panic attacks once in a while.
9. I always wear a cross around my neck, but it has nothing to do with religion.
10. I silently and sometimes out-loud judge people all the time. I can’t really help it. I guess it’s because it helps with my self-esteem.
11. I have CRPS.
12. I’ve been put on way too many prescription meds. When I was in middle school I weaned myself off of Zoloft which was making me crazy/suicidal.
13. I love making people happy.
14. When I was younger, I used to tell people that I was allergic to grape jelly so I didn’t have to eat it. I’m not actually allergic to anything.
15. I love observing people. I love watching the way people interact with one another. It’s really thrilling to me in a way.
16. I was in the play FAME in highschool. I played two parts. Hilary van Duren, a pretentious little ballet-dancing bitch (while playing her I got to speak in an English accent) and Shirley, a ghetto hip-hop dancer from the projects.
17. I’m genuinely happy for the first time in my life.
18. I was a cheerleader for 7 years and a dancer for 2. I only stopped due to knee problems.
19. I didn’t have to take gym at all in high school.
20. I truly believe in my heart that everything happens for a reason. I don’t think I’d be here if that wasn’t true.
21. I’m Greek, Spanish, French, and whatever my mom is. I’m pretty sure she’s just a mutt of an American.
22. I taught myself how to play piano by ear when I was about 7. I’m pretty rusty now.
23. I didn’t graduate high school with the rest of my class thanks to my mom. I had to do some stuff online a few months later to get my diploma.
24. I spent half the day in a holding cell at the police department in Seaside Heights better known as the Jersey Shore. The cops picked me up from a hotel I was staying at and kept me there ‘til my parents came to pick me up. The reason for this is quite a long story.
25. My mom and I are pretty close now. Even after all that’s happened.

@filmfann It’s like reading a mystery novel that you wrote. Of course it’s not going to be exciting to you. It’s interesting to see what things other Jellies have experienced, and bits about their personalities. You get a newfound understanding of who they are.

Nially_Bob's avatar

I apologise in advance for the sheer intensity of mundanity depicted below.

1. I’ve had an interest in just about every field of study i’ve encountered except when they involve maths because I simply cannot understand anything remotely complex that relates to numbers.
2. I am incredibly disorganised and go to great lengths to try to work around this. If I were to feel as though I had to be somewhere I would immediately search my pockets, bag, wallet etc for a stick-it note reminding me.
3. Those i’ve asked have all said that my disorganisation is my worst trait.
4. I am indescribably dependent on human contact. Not in so much as i’m clingy as I need to be surrounded by people. If there’s no one nearby me I almost always take what i’m doing outside so there are people, or make a phonecall, talk online etc.
5. I’m the opposite of a picky eater, when watching reality tv shows where people are required to eat things such as bull testicles I wonder what it tastes like and where you could buy it. The only foods I dislike are mince meat and custard.
6. When people disagree with me in a debate or argument I place an arm on my right knee and lean on it as otherwise my leg visibly shakes with excitement.
7. I’ve long promised myself that if I came into a substantial amount of money (i.e. by winning the lottery) that I would pay off my debts then distribute it between my friends, family and the kindly people i’ve met in my life (online and otherwise) and give the rest to charity leaving myself with nothing as frankly I wouldn’t know what to do with it. I’ve always wondered if I would follow through with this promise.
8. I only wear my glasses when absolutely necessary because they make me feel vulnerable.
9. If I have free time while on my campus I usually walk into a random lecture theatre to learn but walk away only remembering a few key points regardless of how simple the subject is.
10. I hate dealing in absolutes which is why the majority of my sentences involve the terms usually, probably, possibly, the majority of etc.
11. I’m enchanted by green eyes. Someone could be the most deplorable person to ever exist but if they had green eyes I would still be engrossed in them.
12. I have an odd relationship with my family. I like them, admire them to varying extents, appreciate them raising me (my parents primarily) and would be upset if they died by all means. Yet despite this I could not see them for years and it would be of little bother to me. I have had surgery in the past and not informed any of them whereas I have done so with some friends. I am more willing to share the personal details of my life with a stranger than any member of my family.
13. I have very few problems with my appearance because when I was 14 I went through a brief phase of low self-esteem wherein I refused to look in the mirror. Upon forcing myself to do so I made a slightly confused expression and said aloud, “I’m pretty attractive, but not that attractive”. Ever since then everytime I have an issue with my appearance I do the exact same thing and it ends, just like that.
14. I’m sexually attracted to misanthropes because they’re so opposite in nature to me yet share the same desire to question conventions.
15. I could count the number of strong opinions I have on one hand.
16. One of these is on my disagreement with the concept of nationality. In spite of this the moment I meet a tourist I become a British stereotype.
17. I dislike the IQ test, not because I disagree with its validity or reliability but because I feel so much emphasis is placed on it that people lower/heighten their expectations unnecessarily to meet their IQ.
18. I once heard that the majority of people die within 10 miles of where they were born and though I have never affirmed this to be true I realised how much I would resent myself if that were me.
19. Though I once thought there was an exception, I have never hated anyone. Not because i’m especially compassionate but simply because it would be one less person for me to converse with and I adore conversations above all else.
20. I find it disturbingly easy to emotionally detach myself from any situation.
21. I’ve not had a headache in about 5 or 6 years.
22. My best friend once told me that one of the most upsetting moments for her was seeing me cry. Since then i’ve refused to cry in the presence of another person for fear that i’ll upset them. For that matter I find it difficult to cry.
23. I’m an avid “fight hobbyist” and practice amateur boxing frequently even though I dislike seeing people in pain. I’m not fantastically good at fighting but i’ve never stayed down and i’m proud of that.
24. I intentionally draw attention away from myself and try as best I can to be modest and polite because my ego tends to be all-or-nothing.
25. I have never been romantically in love. I find it difficult to conceive having a level of care for a person that I don’t already feel for most. This has unfortunately led to many of my relationships feeling like i’m with a friend I happen to have sex with.

@JilltheTooth: I’m not. I’m amazed you had trouble. You are, by far, the most interesting person I know. :)

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Please don’t add another reply finishing off with 21–25 saying the same damn thing. We really don’t need that. Thanks.

1. I am really cranky today because the welding class I wanted to take is already filled.
2. I love my mate but if he didn’t like my dogs, he would probably be the one to go.
3. I like most all artistic endeavors.
4. Woodcarving is my favorite.
5. I love to read but I often fall asleep.
6. I fell asleep at the sprint car races one time.
7. Actually I can fall asleep most anywhere except in bed.
8. My youngest dog is mostly dingo and it is illegal to own a dingo in the state where I live.
9. I have a great neice who just turned 14 and I love her. She is cute and plays field hockey.
10. Her dad was an adorable man and he died several years ago of cancer.
11. I met my mate in an on line chat room about 15 years ago.
12. I sold my business in USA and moved to Australia to be with him 12 years ago.
13. I have dual citizenship now and I love Australia.
14. When I was young I did all the right things, acquired the necessary letters after my name and joined the corporate world.
15. About 10 years later, I chucked it all in and went into dogs and have mostly been in the dog business one way or another ever since.
16. I hate having impressions at the dentist. I would (almost) be inclined to go toothless than have them.
17. I take drugs (xanax) when I fly or go to the dentist for impressions, hehehe.
18. I love to fish.
19. I live in the tropics.

22. Tennis is my favorite sport to watch or play but I will watch or play just about anything. I have even learned to enjoy cricket!
23. I try to stay skinny so I run and swim and bike almost every day. I take my young dog with me when I run or ride, she is sleek and hard and fast and beautiful.
24.I have a fingernail that is almost ready to fall off. I slammed the car door on it (incredibly stupid thing to do) but it is still hanging by a thread and I am too chicken to yank it off so it is driving me crazy.
25. I might have to go to the doctor for a sore finger, how embarrassing is that!

@Simone_De_Beauvoir I know, it was maybe just slightly excessive. :P

1. I was born and have always lived in Monterrey, Mexico (well, except for a semester abroad during college).
2. I plan things, a lot. Sometimes obsessively. I get irritated/frustrated when things don’t go according to plan. I’m working on it. I have a plan. Oh wait…
3. I am very organized (read: borderline OCD) in some things (e.g., the bills in my wallet are sorted by value, and all face the same way), but very disorganized in others (e.g., my room is a MESS, and if it weren’t for Xobni I’d never be able to find something in my work mailbox; get Xobni y’all!).
4. I am color blind. I didn’t know what was wrong with me until I was like 12 or 13 and read about it in a magazine. In elementary school I once drew a green deer. Deer should totally be green!
5. I am flat-footed.
6. I speak 4 languages: Spanish (my mothertongue), English, Italian and (a very, very rusty) German. I am determined to recover my German, learn at least 2 other languages and lose my accent when speaking English.
7. I always did extremely well in school. I graduated summa cum laude from high school (IB FTW beeyotch!) and college.
8. I turned down (at the 11th hour) a partial scholarship to an Ivy League college. The cost-benefits analysis just didn’t cut it. I have never regretted it.
9. I am currently studying for the Level 1 CFA exam. It is no picnic.
10. I still live with my parents. I come and go as I please. I help with the bills (as well as lending my father $40k USD to help pay for my sister’s Masters; I get paid back this week, yay!).
11. My mother is the best cook in the world. I know for a fact that I’ll lose quite a bit of weight when I move out.
12. I will probably move out soon. I’m looking for a new job, which will most likely will take me to Mexico City. That’s where the money (i.e., Mexico’s financial sector) is.
13. Mexico City is also where my girlfriend is. Yay! She’s my high school sweetheart. We were together for 4 years, then broke up for a year, got back together for 3 months, broke up because she was to leave for 2 years, and now we’re back since a month and a half ago.
14. I’m not wild about pets, especially cats. I used to be afraid of dogs, but not so much anymore. Still can’t fully trust them: they’re all sons of bitches!
15. I am a tae kwon do black belt. I mean, sure, I was 14 when I got it, and I quit as soon as I got it (my dad wouldn’t let my brother and me quit before), but hey, it still counts.
16. You probably wouldn’t guess it by looking at me (I’m a large guy), but I’m an advanced spinning cyclist. I can “spin” for 2 hours non-stop. That’s pretty fucking tiring, though.
17. I like my steaks somewhere between medium and three quarters. My life would be easier if waiters knew their fractions, so I could order it 5/8.
18. My favorite ice cream is banana nut. My favorite Dairy Queen blizzard is Oreo with cheesecake and banana. I had one yesterday, yay!
19. My favorite alcoholic drink is whisky (with mineral water). My favorite beer is Heineken.
20. I am a very social drunk. I am much more reserved when sober.
21. I play the lottery, always with the same numbers. Yes, I know I’m basically throwing away money, I’m an economist, thank you. It’s all about behavioral economics. Besides, it’s just $4.50 for a biweekly (astronomical) chance of getting rich. Don’t be so cheap!
22. My favorite number is 144 (12 times 12). If restricted to digits, my favorite is 7.
23. The first thing that comes to my mind when I see the number 23 is Michael Jordan. Every freakin’ time.
24. I am very competitive, especially when playing board games.
25. I flag stuff here on Fluther. A lot. I’m not all that fond of the rules, but if they’re there, they should be followed. Obey the law!

@Mama_Cakes My family hate the fact that I am not using my “gift” to make a living. The truth is, I love singing, I especially love singing Opera and will continue my training but as far as a career goes, I’d rather work with dogs!
