11: The List [Part One]
As a child, I was never really afraid of the dark. I figured from a very young age that it was the most non-judgmental place I could place myself anywhere in the world.
When people ask me if I play a musical instrument, I tell them no. That’s a lie. I play the piano. I just haven’t played in so long saying I do feels fake. Like I’m unworthy.
Still on piano playing. I can’t read sheet music. My teacher would play a piece to me and I’d play it back or just write the notes down on a sheet and I’d play.
I have a habit of keeping things like boarding passes and concert tickets.
When I was younger, I used to love keeping long nails. Now I find them absolutely revolting.
I have six siblings, not all from the same mother.
Except for the past three years, I’ve been a short distance track athlete for pretty much my entire life.
I can be cold and vindictive.
I have an unhealthy fixation with real life murder stories. I’ve always wondered what pushes people over the edge like that.
It has taken me quite a while to learn the art of biting my tongue. I’m yet to master it.
Most of the time
Sometimes I read into things too deeply and take them too personally.
I cannot for the life of me stand sayings like “It is what it is”, “Do what it do” or “That shit cray”. To me they’re absolutely pointless and you’ll never catch me using them.
I am not fluent in slang. I therefore warn people to take their hip lingo elsewhere or we’ll be lost in translation.
I like to kiss and it’s a mighty shame I don’t get to do it as often as I would like. I attribute that to my not wanting just any random persons tongue down my throat.
If stranded on an island I’d bring the following things; a pen, a notebook and a human.
I am a supernatural/extraterrestrial activity fanatic. I love things that cannot be explained, largely because I am such a thing.
When I began this blog, it was just a way to vent and talk about things I thought mattered. I never once for a second ever saw it turning into the poetry/writing blog it is today.
I am doomed to mourn the deaths of my favourite characters in books I read. I take such things very personally.
I have studied the British curriculum my entire life. I therefore despise American English and the atrocious spelling that comes with it.
I will make another list soon.
