Because Blogging Has Never Been So Unexciting

10 REALLY RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME
I drink a lot of water, like four liters a day. I avoid listening to pleasant, soothing music when I go to work because the last thing I want is to drop my bitch face and have shady strangers leer at me (not to say that the bitch face is fool proof, but it works…sometimes). I shred tissues to bits whenever I’m out at restaurants (or even here at work). I like rooftops (and worn down steel buildings). When I was a child, I found a black kitten, named her “Gold”, and took her home; dad got rid of her immediately. When I was a child (again), my dad and his girlfriend took us to the city and my brother and I left tissue paper trails everyhwere, thinking we were Hansel and Gretel. I dance, very carefully, in the shower. I think a man is his sexiest when he is sleeping peacefully beside me. I never remember to lock my bedroom door (no, there is no horror story here). I am unsure if this is what I really want to do, but then if not this, what else?

9 WAYS TO WIN MY HEART
Read to me out loud a good passage from the book you’re reading. Sing me to sleep. Tell me I’m beautiful in the morning, right after I had just woken up, right before I’ve rubbed the crust out of my eyes. Tell me what you want me to do (I mean that in a non-sexual context). Tell me stories. Surprise me. Make me feel like no one else— not even my mother or my best friend— knows me as well as you do. Plan our future together. Hold my hair away from my face in the event that I end up puking that night’s alcohol down the toilet bowl.

8 THINGS I CARRY/WEAR EVERYDAY
A pack of cigarettes. A lighter. Keys. My camera. Random receipts. Money. A certain sadness that comes with your love being too far away. A hopeful heart.

7 THINGS THAT ANNOY ME
My neighbor who turns off his router (though I am thankful for the hours he keeps it on). People who don’t reply to text messages (though I am one myself). People who smell. People who hover. Big, unfounded egos. How hard it is to find a good pair of jeans in this country.

6 PLACES I’VE VISITED OR INTEND TO
LA. New York City. Greece. Indonesia. Neptune, CA. Stoneybrook, CT.

5 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE
Inspire someone so much that they create something about/for/in honor of me. Be relevant. Get married and have kids. Commit a book to memory (I have a pretty good memory but I doubt I am still capable of memorizing long verses of text, so perhaps something short? Suggestions would be great, I like fiction…the non-trashy type). A place in history books (ok, so I wouldn’t mind if this happened post-mortem).

4 THINGS I’M AFRAID OF
Getting fat. Losing people I care deeply about. Waking up one day and realizing I am incapable of fascination. Dead ends.

3 THINGS I DO EVERYDAY
Worry. Have a good-morning and a good-night cigarette. Imagine my untimely death at the age of 25, due to a drug overdose.

2 THINGS I’M TRYING NOT TO DO NOW
Worry. Wake up my Pet Society pet.

Pet Society

1 PERSON I WANT TO SEE NOW
The boyfriend, naturally.

    “..How hard it is to find a good pair of jeans in this country.”

    Agree. I don’t know why but it’s always too short (or maybe I’m taller than expected) or too thin (or maybe… I’m just fat like that).

    I’m afraid of getting fat too but honestly i’m gaining weight little by little oh no :s

    My neighbor has this wifi thing too but sadly it requires a password for it. PFFT.

    “Inspire someone so much that they create something about/for/in honor of me.”

    I’m guessing you mean something ‘big’ then?

    I’ll probably regret saying this, but creating some paintings is on my long list of things to do. If I decided to do one for you (and maybe even, shock horror.. mail it to you), would that come anywhere close?

    Or would that just be a bit weird?

    Good to know that I’m not the only one who regularly imagines her untimely death. Mine involves being run over by a speeding truck. That’s why I go paranoid when crossing streets, haha.

    Great post as always, Helga! ^_^

    Haha, I tear up tissue/napkins/etc. at restaurants and so forth too! Bad habit I guess!

    Speaking of bad habits… Smoking Helga? Tsk tsk! ;)

    Committing a book to memory? What about a short story? There are a lot of good ones around. :)
