Seven facts

Over Easter, I was tagged by Kel over at the X Facta, so here are seven facts about me, whether you want to know or not.

1. I am an introvert - I may be in public relations, I may have studied communication and I may not have a problem with public speaking and holding leadership positions, but I would rather be surrounded only by a select number of people at any one time. Noise, crowds and having to deal with people tire me.

2. There is probably a Martha Stewart bubbling inside me - I love anything to do with crafts. I like making things. I adore the creative process and the fact that whatever I've created is unique and probably not quite perfect. Eventually, I want to buy a sewing machine and perhaps, start a business. Perhaps.

3. I loathe cooking - I only like the crafty "I make stuff" side of Martha. I can cook and I haven't made a non-palatable dish yet, but I would rather leave the cooking to others who enjoy it.

4. If I lived in the 70s, I would be a hippie - I recycle, I like visiting op-shops, I feed food scraps to chickens and I try to minimise my impact on the environment as much as I can. I love flowing dresses, natural beauty products and remedies and dream of owning a VW beetle.

5. I can be very pedantic - Certain things have to be done in a certain way. The house must be tidy. My car needs to be clean. Perhaps that's why I like knitting so much. I am learning, especially when I have a boyfriend whose spirit is the complete opposite of pedantic, but I still have a long way to go.

6. I communicate with God through writing - Praying in the conventional sense usually sends me to sleep or starts my mind wandering. When I write, I start to calm, my thoughts start to make sense, and most of the time, God communicates back.

7. I dream to live in a new country every two years - It has never eventuated and probably never will, but I love the idea of moving to a new country with a completely different culture every two years.

And going with the rules of the meme, I now pick seven bloggers to share seven things themselves:

Kristin @ Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Free Speech
Kenneth @ Kenneth Birch
Her highness @ Everyone is a queen
Faith @ Faith Toh
Shimona @ Happiness is a choice

...and that's it. I don't have that many friends who blog it seems.

Here's what you do:
  1. Link to your original tagger and list these rules in your post.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.
  5. Let your tagger know you've completed the meme.
then sit back and enjoy the linky love :)

glad you joined in the linky love

the 70's are kinda hip again
retro vibing all over the place
but now the term for hippie would be eco-conscious or greenie [?]

where would you most love to live for the next country?

Melody said...

It was fun :)

Yeah, there's a whole bunch of new terms for hippie-ness at the moment. I think there was one that merged yuppie and eco or something, but I don't remember what anymore :P

Which country? At the moment, I would LOVE to move to Greece...

What a great post.

I can totally identify with number 1. I talk to thousands of people each week via my radio programme and have no problem standing up in front of large groups to preach or MC but I'm still very shy and socially phobic.

I also loved number 6. I'm going to try that myself. Thanks for the idea.

Melody said...

Hee hee. Glad you enjoyed it :)

I thought about tagging you, but then wasn't sure if you would be up for it :)

Shimona Kee said...

DONE! :)
