Random things about myself:
1. I spend a lot of time in the bathroom. It's one of my happy places. I carry books inside with me and shii. It usually bothers anyone I live with. :o)
2. Closely linked, I think if you can fart around someone, then you are truly friends. :D
3. I can count from 1 to 11 in Amharic. And how is that relevant to my life? You tell me.
4. When I was a kid, I apparently wanted to be a policewoman. (I know, wtf.)
5. I judge people based on their grammar...among other things. I think deep down, there's a lot of hatred and judgement going on inside.
6. I'm shy...oh wait,that's not random. It's the name of my blog! LOL. Um...the first post on this blog was a poem. One poem I was really feeling when I wrote. I was a poet before I was a blogger (wasn't everyone? Ah, I'm such a poser lol)
7. When I was in the fourth grade, I wrote a Valentine to my best friend at the time (who OF COURSE I had a crush on) with a SONGS OF SOLOMON VERSE inside it. Even then I was a HOPELESS romantic. He knew it was me. Songs of Solomon? Camaaaaaan.
8. My favourite books are children's books. (My favourite author in the world, aside from myself, teehee, is Roald Dahl. I love most of his books - Henry Sugar didn't rock my world, surprisingly. And apparently, he was actually a nasty person in real life. Go figure.)
9. I sometimes do things with my left hand because I feel like it's left - HA! - out.
10.I met Tyrese. In the flesh. *sighs in bliss* And proceeded to lose his autograph but I SWEAR it's true lol
11.I can listen to Michael Jackson all day every day no problem.
