Random facts about me:
When I saw Ajaytao 2010’s award post, it brought a smile on my face. Smile of recognition – like when you see yourself in a mirror. The random facts listed in his post matched me so well, that I do not see any point in reinventing the wheel and will simply repeat the once that describe me well with a few small amendments:
- I am a very low profile person
- I love to be silent, but in a social context can get over-chatty to cover my embarrassment or lack of social skills
- I love the silence of the night and often blog at night time
- I love people, but often do not know how to communicate well and often get misunderstood
- My way of expression often comes across as weird
- I am not a social person. I don’t like parties, crowds, noise. I see superficial social chat as a waste of time
- I am a hard nut to crack, therefore I have only a few friends who are very precious for me.
And my questions:
- The most unforgettable moment of your life?
Positive moments – realising that we started a new little life that will soon enter this world, followed by the birth of that little life. We had a few of those moments.
Painful – learning about my partner’s cancer on our 10th wedding anniversary followed by three years of surgery, hospitals, various treatments, follow up tests, side effects and re-evaluation of what matters and what does not matter anymore, including our relationship. We never talked about that last bit, but I felt it was there. I always believed that each person has a right to write his or her life story therefore if that ‘chapter’ was over for my partner, I was fine with that. I don’t believe in ‘clinging’ to a relationship if it is not working for one or all of the parties involved. I’m OK to leave it if I’m not needed and if it does not have any negative effect on others. All positive memories will always stay with me, while negative ones – well, I’m lucky to have a very short memory for those. We battled over that Big C beast at the end – that was another unforgettably positive moment. Hope this beast will never come back to us.
- One fictitious character you completely relate to?
Mr Bean – well, not completely, but I do relate to him.
- The best compliment you ever received? I trust you.
- Do you have a regret for a lifetime? None.
- The one thing you love about yourself? Sincerity
- If you had to live someone else’s life for a single day who would that be?
I don’t want to live anyone else’s life – I prefer my own.
- Who is your favourite writer?
Can’t name one. I like lots of writers – each with his or her own voice, each with his or her own perspective. For me naming a favourite writer is like naming a favourite instrument in an orchestra – I like lots of different instruments, as each of them produces unique sound and only together they can make good music.
- Your most favorite place in this whole world?
New Zealand with its bush, mountains, lakes, fiords and beautiful coastline.
- Define love in a single word. Whisper.
- Do you believe in miracles and magic?
Yes when it comes to meeting amazing people in my life. Such meetings are true miracles to me.
- The most unforgettable experience of a lifetime?
Having children and getting a glimpse of the world through their eyes.
