10 Things I Know About Me

I use this blog as a way of talking to you all about life with inflammatory arthritis and life with chronic illness in general, but I was thinking after my latest blog entry about having an identity crisis, that I have never really introduced myself. I don’t want to do some kind of boring “I am 5’6” and have size 6 feet” or “I’m the eldest child in my family” kind of thing. That’s boring.

So. Here’s a slightly alternative 10 things about me entry.

  1. Who am I? I am the girl who loves my island, the girl who loves the sea, it calls meeeeee. Oh wait, that’s Moana, not me. But that leads me nicely to point number 1, I LOVE everything about Disney. My favourite has to be The Jungle Book, and I have an unhealthy obsession with Baloo. I have heaps of Baloo toys and memorabilia, including, but not limited to pjs’ clothes and bedding. I went to Disneyworld Florida dressed as Baloo and when I met him, I pretty much cried. It is still the happiest moment of my life. I’m 29 years old by the way. This happened less than 2 years ago.
  2. I am a Cancerian born under a Gemini Moon. This explains why I articulate with wild hands, why I love to write and most importantly, why I love to talk.
  3. I am of part Chinese heritage and I am incredibly proud of this (FYI, I’m a dragon).
  4. I am scared of balloons, Christmas crackers and party poppers. I.E anything that has a potential to go BANG.
  5. I am an avid reader. In fact, I would say that reading is my favourite thing to do. I think I own more books than the average library.
  6. I have moved house at least 16 times. It may be more, but it’s hard to keep up.
  7. I can play both the piano and the violin, but sadly, not at the same time.
  8. I love to drink tea. 90% of my body is made up of tea. I drink probably 12-15 cups a day. And that’s on top of the 3 litres of water I drink every day. What can I say? Hydration is key.
  9. I cannot eat pineapple, oranges or prawns. The string-y texture makes me wanna cry.
  10. I am Slytherin. There is nothing more to add to that.


So, there you have it. 10 slightly random facts about me, which, when I read them back make me question how mentally stable I actually am. If there’s anything else anyone wants to know then drop me a message, and as always, any future topics you want me to cover then send them my way and I’ll do my best!

What are some wonderful facts about you??

  1. Its a great idea to think about ourselves not the disease and how it has affected ourselves… I like this post. Five quick things about me: 28 houses; dog + 2 cats (pet-centric); play piano and flute (hope to play again); bibliophile; prefer to be outdoors to being inside. Cheers!
