A Hundred Things You Didn't Need To Know

I'm really bad about opening up to people generally. If I have a conversation with someone, I will turn it around so that I'm the one asking all the questions about their lives, and hardly, if ever, answering any about my own. So in an effort to be open...here's 100 things you don't really need to know about me.
  1. I have yellowish-brown, hazel eyes. They change colors to bright gold sometimes.
  2. I am fascinated by all forms of plant life, but specifically trees and medicinal, wild greenery.
  3. I have four tattoos.
  4. I cannot eat wheat, it makes my intestines very sad.
  5. I have two pet rats.
  6. My family's nickname for me is "The Dog Whisperer," because it only takes me a few days to completely win over a dogs affection to where they don't even listen or pay attention to the people who raised them anymore. lol
  7. I haven't really experienced much in the way of trauma, even though I constantly put myself in the positions to starve, be raped, molested, poisoned, hit by cars, accidentally shot, etc.
  8. What I haven't experienced in that, I make up for in emotional trauma.
  9. I regret none of my decisions in life. Each one is a learning experience that has built me to who I am today.
  10. I believe that for happiness, not contentment but happiness, you must share it with someone else or it does not last.
  11. I meditate everyday.
  12. I started drinking coffee a few months ago, despite hating it completely before. I love it so.
  13. My favorite book is Watership Down.
  14. I knit.
  15. I haven't really, truly watched TV in 7+ years.
  16. I sometimes have dreams about the future, but it's usually years and years later, with people I had never met at that time, and doing really insignificant things. And don't remember them until that moment in which they actually happen.
  17. I love the smell of pine sap.
  18. I am empathic and clairsentient. I feel things, like other peoples emotions, vibes, and energies.
  19. I can often mind-shift, in where I can see someone across the room at a restaurant or something, and then be able to experience what they're experiencing for a short time. Recently learned this is not abnormal, just related to empaths.
  20. I paint with watercolors, india ink, and acrylics.
  21. I start hundreds of projects but usually never get past the first few hours with them before losing interest.

  23. I only wear dark colors or earth tones.
  24. I've only been in two relationships.
  25. I do a lot of book buying/borrowing, but not a TON of reading. A lot, but not a ton.

  27. I LOVE PBS Nature and BBC Earth.

I needed to know each and every word of this. Although you think your alone,your not. I'm your friend. And always will be.

Aww. That really means a lot... (: Thank you~

You really mean a lot to me Fernwolf. Your welcome :)

Can totally relate to number 16. It confuses me because i don't believe in any paranormal activity or esp of that kind. Certainly seems strange to me.

yeah, it's something thats been happening for as long as I could remember, long before I believed in anything supernatural. maybe it's just the future timelines intersecting with the present, but we only notice the difference while dreaming. fun to think about anyway.
