Eleven Random Facts About Me

  1. There’s something weird with my wrists that freaks people out. When you squeeze it, you’d feel like the bones in my wrists are crushing. But it doesn’t hurt. When I want to freak people out I ask them to squeeze my wrist.
  2. I’m leftie which I think is a bit special because only 10% of the world’s population is leftie haha!
  3. I hate math or basically anything with numbers.
  4. I have hemophobia, it means I’m terribly afraid of blood. Mice, spiders, worms, cockroahces, and basically every creepy crawlies out there can crawl over me just don’t get me near blood.
  5. I’m obssessed with the band Linkin Park. Like, a lot! Hopefully I can go to their concert here in Manila next month.
  6. I love anime. Once I travelled really far to attend this anime convention and meet my idol, Alodia Gosiengfiao. But lately I’ve been more focused on books and less on anime.
  7. I wish on 11:11 and Wishing Wells and falling stars.
  8. It’s my dream to see the Aurora Borealis.
  9. I have asthma and I’m allergic to chicken, egg and eggplant but I eat all of them.
  10. Once I deliberately overdosed myself on medicine. I had chicken pox then and my body was so itchy and I couldn’t scratch the blisters because it will scar and I was losing my mind and this medicine is supposed to lessen the itch if I took 10 ml. But it didn’t work so I drank half of the bottle, straight from the bottle!
  11. I don’t plan to have a pet ever again. Once we had a pet dog and she caught this illness and there was nothig we could do for her and I had to watch her die, it was awful! I didn’t want to leave her that time so I was… just there listening to her desperate breathing.. It was so painful I don’t want to be in that situation again so I vowed to myself never to have a pet again.
