Eight little facts about me

I was tagged by Vilia to write about my eight habits or facts.

Here comes the set of rules:
(1) Each Blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves
(2) Blogger that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. At the end of your blog,
(3) You need to choose 8 people to get tag and list their names
(4) Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged to read your blog.

I will start with the most random eight facts about me first.. I'll pick those that come first in mind.

1. I was born on 6 January 1986, at 7:30 in the morning, under the star sign of Capricorn and Chinese sign of Ox.

Which simply means I am a hard worker (ox working in the morning), responsible, uptight and a born leader (all traits that belong to Capricorn). The above is true, although not a hundred percent correct. I am not very flexible, I am complicated to understand, and I am not a social butterfly. I have the Capricorn traits rooted deeply in my flesh, that's why I'm a little upset when they say there is gonna be a change in the star signs and I'm going to be something else than Capricorn. LOL.

2. I am insane about good books and movies.

Whenever I see a book or a movie that I like, I simply grab it and buy it. As simple as that. My mind seems to go blank whenever I go gaga over books. Well, it's just a habit I'm accustomed to, since someone pointed it out for me I might as well realize it. I've been a bookworm since I was little, there was nothing that pleased me more than go shopping for books and unwrapping the plastic, then actually smelling the new paperback scent, and flipping the pages one by one. Pure pleasure.

3. I am not allowed to drink coffee.

My poor gastric condition does not allow me to drink as many cups as I would like. Not that I like coffee though. I only like the scent, but I don't like its bitter taste in my mouth. I do not like cappuccino, espresso, whatever. The ones I like are strictly blended frappuccino, or Starbucks hot chocolate (which, has nothing to do with coffee). I prefer tea.

4. I toured around Europe when I was eleven.

I wish I can repeat the experience. Crossing the territory of Germany, visiting the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, and zooming in Eiffel Tower with my camera. Plus, I'd like to step foot on London, it's such a mysterious city to me.

5. I used to hate sushi.

Yep, I was against eating everything raw and slimy, I even refused to eat nori because of the smell. But then my first sushi experience was not bad, and now I am a sushi addict. Even sashimi!

6. I am very, very, very moody.

I was born with it, the moodiness I mean. I can be mean one day, then happy and bubbly the next. Every little thing affects my mood, from a single scold from the boss, the breakdown of the computer, the stupid thing I do or someone says, my mood swings higher than ever :) that's just me, and strangely writing or shopping always makes me feel better.

7. I am a perfectionist.

Being a Capricorn also means I am a perfectionist, although I shouldn't blame my star sign for that. I keep a schedule - sometimes blow it, though - on my writing, my tasks, whatever it is. I always keep a book or my schedule on my phone, and feel pressured whenever they are not finished yet.

8. I have never bungee-jumped before.

Not that I would want to. The adrenaline is too much for me. I am a little scared of height. And I have no intention of throwing myself over a bridge to the scary river below me. No. Not a chance. Nil.

OK now I have to pass this to eight people:
1. Ayu
2. Windry
3. Wien
4. Mirna
5. Niska
6. Mitsuko
7. Tania
8. Luke

Whew. I'm done spilling secrets about me :)
