This is the 25 Random Things meme which was going around on Facebook a while back when I first joined. The point of this was to write down 25 random things about yourself that might surprise those who think they know you. I am well aware that there are very few people who might find 25 random things about me interesting enough, but I think it’s still fun to do and so I thought I’d share it again here.
I tend to suffer from sicosnipophobia.
I’m a chocaholic. I’ve been known to having devoured a whole big tub of Nutella in just 3 days, by licking it off a spoon and not spread on bread.
Board games are my favourites. From Monopoly to Scrabble to Cluedo. They’re classics.
I absolutely love my long hair. I consider it part of my personality now and I wouldn’t feel like myself if I had to have it short.
I have a huge collection of Harry Potter paraphernalia. From books and dvds to games, toy figurines, scarves and clothes. My most treasured piece is Daniel Radcliffe’s signed photograph.
I am an avid fan of horror movies. The more gruesome the better.
I am in love with St. Sebastian. Forever and ever. Amen.
Clowns, porcelain dolls, carousels and the sound of ice-cream van chimes freak me out. For some weird reason, I find these scarier than horror movies.
Gozo is truly a ‘diamond in the Mediterranean’. I love going there for quiet weekend breaks away from the hustle and bustle of Malta. I much prefer visiting in Winter rather than during the traditional, busiest St. Maria holiday in August.
I’m totally against abortion. No reason justifies such act.
I’m in for cremation
. Hopefully, by the time I’ll die, cremation will be possible in Malta. I hate to think I’ll be buried 6 feet under with God knows what running all over and eating out of me!
As much as I love rain, I can’t stand umbrellas and windscreen wipers going back and forth.
I love all kinds of art. I’m a very creative and artistic person. I enjoy drawing and painting the most.
I miss my school years. Memories of school days bring me nostalgia.
Three places that are still on my wish list and definitely have to visit: Venice, Florence and Australia. In no particular order.
Speaking of Venice, I love those beautiful Venetian masks. I’ll have to get a great handmade one for sure.
I don’t like pink, Barbie or anything too girlie.
But I love unicorns, fairies incense sticks and mystical fantasies.
I’d love to visit New York someday, if only for the sole reason of going out to eat at a restaurant and visiting a jazz bar in the middle of the night. They say it’s the city that never sleeps whilst I am a night owl, so I think NY and I will get along pretty well.
I love make-up, especially the prosthetic kind, even though I keep mine quite natural. And I love colour. Whenever I’m in a make-up shop, I have to try out all the different colour samples that catch my attention. I just can’t help myself with colour!
Speaking of colour, I love Carnival and all the colourful carnival floats that are traditional to us Maltese.
The piano is my favourite musical instrument. I used to learn the piano when I was a child and I hope I will pursue learning to play in future.
I admire Madonna. She still looks so damn good for her age. She just amazes me.
One day I will definitely have a library in my future house where I will be able to display my beautiful collection of books I own.
One thing I can be sure of is that if I had to go back in time I will do and go through exactly the same things I’ve been through. I can honestly say I have no regrets.
