Often when I’m bored, or tired from studying, I take a break and either watch Netflix or browse through fellow GPers blogs. Last week in my chemistry class, Mina and I were talking about how we both like to read others’ blogs and she told me that she had written one about Ashley’s blogs. So now, in turn, I will write a similar one, inspired by Ashley’s originality and genuineness as well as Mina’s reflection upon that.
In my blogs, I mostly write about things that happen to me or situations that I find interesting and important to me. Rarely, if ever, do I write about myself, not events that I attend, but who I am as a person, so here are a few strange facts about me!
- I have an abnormally high pain tolerance. How do I know? Well, when I play ultimate frisbee, I get knocked around quite a bit. Getting bulldozed by 6’3″ guys, being the landing cushion under other players, laying out for discs in risky risky situations. I’ve done it all with no thought to my own safety. My coaches sometimes lecture me about giving them mini heart-attacks but *shrug*.
- I LOVE sushi. All kinds of sushi. I could eat it every day and I wouldn’t get sick of it. It’s just so yummy and there are so many different kinds. In fact, I LOVE food in general! Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a single food item that I dislike.
- I was born missing 2 of my adult molars, so after the 2 baby teeth fell out, all that was left in those spots were just gaps. My mom has the same problem, but miraculously her baby molars never came out (???). Anyways I’m left with spaces forever unless I get fake teeth to go in their places.
- I am extremely extremely EXTREMELY indecisive. About nearly everything. University major? Decided a few days before first applications were due. Do I want to play on a team? Decided 15 minutes before the reply deadline. What my big written assignment is about? Decided minutes before class began. Yes its a problem, no there isn’t anything I can do about it. So please, don’t ask me where I want to eat unless you want “idk” as answer every single time.
As we get closer and closer to the departure date of our big adventure, I get more and more excited about getting to know each and every GPer more and more. Spending over 15 hours on a plane with peers that I don’t usually interact with at school is a little intimidating, but I couldn’t be more excited!!!!
35 days to go.
