Meme: Eight Things About Me

I’ve been officially tagged by Urban Thought (how sweet!) over at It’s my first time too so I’ll do my best to post some interesting stuff since my only other alternative is a lonely but fly hotel room in the middle of nowhere, Virginia.

Here is how it works:

1. Each player must post these rules first.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

And now the list:

1. I’m multilingual, I’m perfectly fluent in both Spanish and English, I got a 99 on my Spanish HS Regents Exam. I also studied two years of French and one of Italian. Parla Italiano?

2. Books are really sacred to me, it makes me quite sad to see torn, or scribled on books. When I finish reading a book, it still looks mint. No bent corners either. Throwing away a book makes me cringe.

3. I tend to idealize people I admire and place even my friends on pedestals. Some might call me loyal, some naive.

4. I believe there is beauty to be found within everyone, and every living thing.

5. I feel exhilarated after meditating.

6. Looks don’t turn me on, nor does money or status symbols. I’m more impressed by sensitivity, brilliance and integrity.

7. I’m addicted to reading blogs.

8. Last but not least, I have never ridden a rollercoaster and feel like I probably never will.

You’re it:

More to come soon…
