Ten Things you don’t know (yet) about me.

I was thinking I could perhaps tell you ten things about me and in return you could tell me ten things about you in the comments ? That’d be great !

1- I used to make pixel art when I was younger. I even won a contest !
2- I talk to myself in English … and I even talk to my cats in English. – I’m french, but I’m sure everyone knows it !
3- I’m self conscious about my English accent.
4- I’ve been drinking coffee for almost ten years, I tried to quit but I can’t. Well, well, well.
5- The first English book I read was Harry Potter, I read it in three days and I was so proud of myself ! Since then, I only read in English.
6- I easily cry, it’s quite embarrassing. The other day I cried at the theatre because they were showing the ‘Titanic 3D’ trailer. boo.
7- I can read in a crowded place, I don’t care about the noise.
8- I’m always obsessed with something. See my last obsession.
9- I enjoy spending time alone, however it doesn’t mean I want to be alone all the time.
10- I used to be quite shy, but I’m working on that ;).

Surface sensible
Thank you Margaux for this pretty picture. 🙂

  1. You should show me your pixel art work ^^ ! And HP is also the first book I read in English… but I guess it must be the same for many French people.
    Oh and sorry, I don’t really have 10 interestings things to say about myself =/

  2. 1. I am obsessed with reading, and love to talk books with any willing participant.
    2. I’m a perfectionist, and as a result I’m very hard on myself… 🙁
    3. I play the piano and the saxophone.
    4. My dream is to become a published author, but at the moment I am training to be an English teacher!
    5. My favourite band are The Cure, and I am so desperate to see them that it makes me cry.
    6. I am also incredibly emotional, and cry at the drop of a hat.
    7. I drink a lot of tea.
    8. I wish I could speak a foreign language fluently (French or Spanish), but sadly I lack the motivation to teach myself… 🙁
    9. I have a lovely boyfriend of over four years who I adore.
    10. I have blonde hair but have always dreamed of being a red head (though I’m too scared to dye my hair!)

    🙂 xx

  3. I can’t think of 10 things, but I’m very self conscious about my French accent. I refuse to speak French to anyone French when I’m in England (though, when my flatmate uses a French expression or says something to me in French without remembering she lives in England now, I’ll automatically reply in French). I’ll do it in France, as people see me as foreign and I warm up into it after being home for a few days. I can also read in crowded places without minding the noise!

  4. 1. I fear never finishing all the books and TV shows I’m behind on.
    2. I’m self-conscious of my Spanish accent.
    3. I’m a perfectionist, which bites me in the butt a lot.
    4. I’ve slowly learned to let go.
    5. I, too, can read in a crowded place. I really can read anywhere.
    6. I can’t get my nails perfectly shaped
    7. I need a good nap.
    8. I’m fiercely protective of my friends.
    9. My favorite color is dark purple (or as my friends and I have dubbed it Durple)
    10. I would love to live abroad.

  5. A minuit vingt sept, je ne peux décemment pas écrire un commentaire en anglais. Je n’ai qu’une chose à dire : REMBOURSEZ ! Je savais toutes ces choses sur toi, je me sens lésée !

    Bisous bisous mon Ariel !

  6. What a lovely photo!
    I also think and read in English (though my first language is Spanish)- I find it a little weird sometimes but it feels weirder if I try to do it all in Spanish. I can also read in crowded/noisy places- it’s ‘crazy’ when you kind of ‘snap out of it’ and the world gets a little louder!

  7. You shouldn’t be conscious of your English accent, the French have cool accents! Ha ha 🙂 Wow who knew you made pixel art? Maybe you should make a blog post on that, it would be great to see your old work.
