1. I want to learn Greek.
  2. I never say no to chocolate.
  3. I am a procrastinator. I wish I weren’t.
  4. I don’t like to clean up. I clean up when I have something important to do, though. Because I am a procrastinator.
  5. There is no food I don’t like. I like some food more than other, but I could eat anything. Probably it has something to do with my childhood, during communism, when food was scarce and so it was heat and electricity and clothes.
  6. Every time I peel an orange I think of Christmas. During communism, we had oranges for Christmas only.
  7. I don’t know how to swim.

  9. I don’t know how to ride a bike.
  10. Sometimes, I don’t like people.

  16. I also need time off from my life, from time to time.

  18. I need a coffee to start my day.
  19. Sometimes, I feel like I need alcohol to finish my day. Or weed. But I stay away from both, because I am affraid of addiction. Addiction makes you lose control.
  20. I am a control freak.
  21. I trust all people until I am proven wrong. Once a person loses my trust, they will never get it back.
  22. I put people on pedestals. When they are knocked down, I feel betrayed.
  23. I want to tour South America. I want to spend some months on an exotic island, mingle with locals. I don’t feel like visiting Paris. I don’t know why. But I am an Amsterdam girl, for sure.
  24. I would like to have a child with a man coming from a very mixed family, so mixed, he can’t remember his roots. I would also like to adopt a child.

  29. I don’t do Math.
  30. I write. For so many reasons.
  31. I don’t keep diets.
  32. I make friends easily, if I want to.

  34. I can’t talk to stupid people. They make me wanna punch them in the face.

  37. I would like to live in house by the water, close to a forest.
  38. I like silence.
  39. I like people that are creative and people that are living their dream. They have a certain energy, that is good for me.
  40. I admire people that give up everything to follow a dream. I can’t do it. Yet.
  41. I believe in karma.
  42. I like science. I don’t understand much of it, but I get the butterflies each time I read about a new discovery or about each time man takes a further step in understanding the universe.
  43. I am an Atheist. I support gay people.
  44. I am spiritual. I strongly believe everything happens for a reason. I strongly believe in fate. And I believe we lived different lives in different places. Because I have deja vu-s. Or maybe they are symptoms of anxiety attacks.
  45. I don’t judge people by the way they look. I don’t divide people into beautiful and ugly. I divide them into people I like and people I don’t like.

  50. I am loyal. I don’t lie. I don’t like being lied to. I cut liars off from my life with absolutely no regrets.
  51. I don’t belong anywhere. I could move tomorrow to a new country and start over. I would miss nothing from here.
  52. I have a great sense of humour. You can make fun of me, I don’t mind. I am too confident to mind. I make fun of problems also.
  53. I can dominate people but I don’t want to.
  54. I like men that try to dominate me. I like men that don’t do what I want. I like men that tell me what to do. I probably won’t do what they tell me to do, but attempted authority turns me on.
  55. I like people that are smarter than me. I can shut up and listen to them for hours.
  56. I have curly hair. And freakless.

  58. I don’t get intimidated easily.
  59. I don’t like cowards, people that are affraid to break their routine and fullfil a dream, any dream. I hate shallow people. And lazy people.

  60. I need to learn new things everyday.

  75. I need ten hours of sleeping to be in shape. I have insomnia quite often.
  76. I talk in my sleep. I tell everything I do when awake. One time, when spending the first night over an ex boyfriend, I took a sleeping pill. We weren’t dating for long so…you know.

  88. I don’t do anything for money.
  89. I don’t care if a guy is rich or poor. If he is interesting and caring and has a good hygiene, I date him.
  90. If I like a guy, I tell him. If he doesn’t like me back, I don’t feel rejected. I find another.
  91. I don’t like my parents.
  92. I love people that fight their weaknesses. I love people that try to break all the walls around them.

    Reblogged this on Lavinia's Writing Corner and commented:

    At one point, it was a trend on Romanian blogs, to sit down and write the first one hundred things about yourself that come to your mind. It is not as easy as it looks and the result might be surprising. It is a good exercise, maybe you wanna try it too.
