25 fun (at least I hope?) facts about me!
I’m feeling a bit vain today. Lol 😀
I will try to mostly list facts I haven’t mentioned here much before.
1.) I always want to hug people who are crying, hurt, or sick. Even fictional characters in books & movies. I have no maternal impulses but I’m very nurturing. I’m not a sympathetic crier. Seeing someone cry won’t make me want to cry but I will want to take the person in my arms and provide as much comfort as I can.
2.) I like loud people who talk & curse a lot. ❤ lol I always have. I'm quiet and gentle and it's a sweet contrast.
3.) When I was a little girl I always wanted big boobs. Lol I used to do exercises a girl in class with me said can make them bigger. I was jealous when other girls already had boobs. In high school, my first year, I met a couple girls and was having lunch with them and they were talking about boobs and the one girl said "poor Kim, she only has A cups" and the other girl said "yeah that's too bad." They weren't being bratty, they truly felt sorry for me. Lol Then in 12th grade I was sitting in the front of class and I heard a girl in the back say to another "Kim must have gotten breast implants " and the other girl said "I know! She used to have no boobs now she got the biggest knockers in class!"
Lmao! Guess my wish came true!
4.) I love sour gummi worms! MmmMmm
5.) I was always naturally very thin since I was a little girl, especially as a teenager and younger. No matter how much I consume, I stay thin. This is how my dad is too. I wasn't underweight or malnourished but it was possible to see my ribs and hipbones.
But when I turned 25 years old, I put on a lot more weight. I only took size 3-5 pants but soon after turning 25 years old I took size 12.
I was very disappointed. I did not like having to buy new clothes because I put on weight
and physically, I felt very different. I was so used to being/feeling thin and it felt so different. I couldn't feel my hipbones as much when I put my hand to my hips. It felt very strange.
I have mostly always loved my beautiful body (except sometimes when I was 16 years old & depressed). I never struggled with true body images issues. Just as a secondary thing because of my struggle with depression, when I was a young girl.
One night as I was sulking about the weight, I stood in front of a mirror and was amazed at how beautiful I still found myself.
I realized even more how deep and unconditional my love for my body is.
I still did not like it being disproportionate and not fitting into my old clothes but I still felt nothing but love for it. Not only did I still love it for what it does for me, keeps me alive and let's me experience but I still found it physically beautiful. I love this experience because it confirmed for me even more that my love is unconditional.
After about a year I went back to being thin but I did nothing to contribute to that intentionally. I still consumed whatever I wanted and all, did no special exercises for weight loss, but after a year, I lost all the weight and fit in my old clothes. And I never put on weight like that again.
Here are some pics of me when I put on the weight.
And here is me now/recently:
(told you I’m feeling the vanity today but it’s ok because you love me, right?! ;-D)
I am beautiful now and was back then as well(makeup is absolutely TERRIBLE though). Now when I look at those old pics of me 5 years ago, I see myself as stunning. I had some dangerous curves! lol I love those curves and that ass. Lol ;-D
We are beautiful no matter our size. Thin girl bashing is just as bad and can be just as damaging as overweight girl bashing.
Real women have curves? Please….
A real woman is a person with the gender identity of a woman. Nothing to do with size or physique.
Also the “girl with no curves is like jeans with no pockets, a man won’t know where to put his hands…” thing is really dumb. If a man doesn’t know where to put his hands on my body, he’s the one with the problem, not me.
Curves have to do with physique anyway, not size. We can be thin with curves and not thin with no curves. I still have curves.
6.) I’m not romantically/sexually attracted to women but I think women are more pleasing to look at than men. Lol ❤
Whatever your gender, gender identity, sexual orientation…
Tell me this
(you’re welcome! lol)
(not my picture)
Isn’t more appealing than this!
(you’re welcome! ;-D )
(not my pic!)
But they’re both incredible looking!
(not my pic!)
I love this photo! My dad watches the Sopranos on HBO like every night. That man on the right is a murderer (in the mafia) and the girl on the left is his psychiatrist, Dr. Melfi. They’re both really good looking. He is truly sexy. But I prefer to look at her. She’s even sexier. She’s beautiful. (inside & out) Drop-dead gorgeous.
I wouldn’t mind having depression if I got to stare at and listen to her for 50 minutes each week! Lol ;-D I love their accent, especially how she says words with an “R” in it like “cheers,” “horror,” “for”….it’s adorable!
Her name is Dr. Melfi in the TV show but many refer to her online as Dr. Milfi because she’s sexy as hell. Lol (Milf) She’s so compassionate and soothing. I love her. ❤
You can listen to/watch them talk in this brief therapy scene:
"Even the handsomest men do not have the same momentary effect on the world as a truly beautiful woman does."
Our professor in college for a clinical psychology class, a clinical psychologist herself, brought in a couple episodes of this tv show for us to watch. This man, Tony, has depression and panic attacks. He's big and strong and very powerful but still struggles with mental illness and he is embarrassed about it. Our professor wanted to show us that anyone can have a mental illness and it's not something to be embarrassed about. I found it comforting back then because I was embarrassed about my condition.
7.) I'm single and don't have a problem with it. I don't need a romantic relationship to be happy. I always say if I soon find a man who falls head over heels in love with me a nd I fall head over heels in love with him, that's amazing! But if not, that's amazing too! I'm not into casual dating at all like when I was in college. I have to see potential for something more or its not happening! Lol 😉
8.) In high school one day I was cutting class with another girl and we got caught by a police officer who was a few steps in front of us. He very seriously and gloomily called us over and I remember thinking oh shit and my friend started walking over to him but I was getting ready to run. I looked in back of me to see if I had a chance and was going to take her arm and drag her with me and he said "don't even think about it!" They must be really great at sensing or reading stuff like that! :-O
So I gave in and very reluctantly walked over to him with my friend. He said "You girls cutting school?" and we both looked down and shook our heads yes. He opened the door to his police car and said alright I'm taking you in. Then he burst out laughing and said just kidding get the hell outta here before someone else catches you!
We laughed and ran away completely relieved! I still smile when I remember that!
9.) When I was a little girl I broke into a factory with my friend, that was being remodeled and we stole some tools and walked around the neighborhood selling them for one dollar for each tool! We told everyone that our dads gave us their old tools. We even sold some to my dad and said they were her dad's and sold some to her dad saying they were my dad's old tools.
We later felt so guilty! Especially lying to our dads like that. But all the candy and chips and juicies we bought with the money really cheered us up!
10.) I'm embarrassed by my middle name and always have been. I used to tell people I don't have one. My sister has the same one as me. I thought it would be cute for us to have the same one. She's over ten years younger. But I just about die whenever someone asks me what it is.
11.) I am 5 feet and 5 inches tall and used to wish I was taller. I love when I wear six inch heels and feel so taller than everyone else!
12.) For as long as I can remember, I never had "current" interests in like music, singers, clothes….once I'm loving or into something, it usually stays that way. My favorite songs now are the same ones that were when I was little with more added. My tastes stay the same. And I like it that way.
13.) When I was in middle school, I saw a recipe to make peanut butter cups and wrote it down and made them all by myself! I was so proud! I am not one to bake or cook and have no real skills for anything so it was so pleasing to do that all by myself! They were delicious and I ate them all by myself too. 😀
14.) Weekdays have my heart more than weekends. Much more. Just the feel of a week/work day. It's like magic. ❤
15.) I don't need coffee. And I don't drink it everyday. I go days without it.
16.) I love cranberry juice. Yum!
17.) I am extremely patient and am frequently told at work how wonderfully patient I am with people. Aww ❤ I just love people.
18.) It's sweet to live in a place where we are blessed with the diversity of all four lovely seasons. I love all four. My favorite is Winter & my least favorite is Summer. 😀 I love talking/writing/reading about the weather. To me, it's inspiring, not merely a "safe" or boring topic just to discuss to have something to say. The seasons deeply inspire me.
19.) the only social media accounts I have are this, Facebook, listography, and photobucket. My sister set up all kinds of other ones for me like Twitter, tumblr..
Whatever else but I can't get into that.
20.) I have mostly always loved being me. At every age I have ever been. Every stage of life. Even with depression, I couldn't want to be anyone else.
21.) Thinking much about my ancestry isn't something I do other than the fact that it's amazing how ancient people all came together to lead to me. Think about how if one little thing was different, if one person hooked up with someone else instead of another, you, me…wouldn't be here! What are the chances?! So slim! We could have been someone else! I almost want to cry it's so beautiful & rare just to be us!!! But I don't think of myself as anything other than American. I grew up here, my culture contributes so much to what I am, not my ancestry as much. People ask me if I'm Irish because of my last name (my last name is but I am not) but I'm not, I'm just American. If I grew up in Ireland I would be but I grew up right here, never set foot in Ireland.
22.) I don't take it hard when people lie to me. I'm not that special that if you lie to me it's the most Earth shattering thing. So many people say they "hate" liars and take being lied to very personally but not me. It's nothing personal. If they're lying to you or to me, they very likely lie to others. It's not like I never told a lie before. And not like I won't tell a lie again. I'm generally very truthful and open and don't lie for thrills but come on, who seriously doesn't ever lie? Are you telling me in all of your days you never do anything and never have done anything but tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Come on man, get real.
23.) When I was a teenager one year, I had a group of friends who were into alcohol and other drugs and sometimes we would all hang out together in some of their houses with no adults around. Sometimes they tried to give me alcohol or other drugs but I always resisted and was never tempted. Now when I think of it, it's really amazing how a teenager had that kind of steely resolve to never once collapse into that peer pressure, especially a lonely depressed, suicidal teenager who longed for the love of deep friendship. I knew it's not for me and did not give in to something just because others wanted me to. I'm not even bragging(i'm actually embarrassed to admit I never experimented with alcohol/cigarettes/other drugs) . Lol I'm just kind of in awe.
24.) In college, I took psychology & philosophy. I took psychology for practical purposes and philosophy just for sheer interest. I always wanted a job helping people and heard that things like social work and psychology are good to take for jobs helping others. So I chose psychology. People always said I would have to be a doctor and that there's no other jobs for psych. Students if we don't get a medical degree or phd. I was not very informed back then and just agreed and said "ok I'll get one of those degrees!" lol without even knowing exactly what they are. I later realized that's not for me and there's various jobs we can have with an education in psychology. I never did anything with the degree. I work at a store. Lol
25.) I was never the stereotypical psych. Student. I did not ever try to "diagnose" everyone I encounter or myself. I never felt like I have every disease we learned about in psych. Classes and I am nowhere close to being qualified to diagnose people. I don't feel that I can get in people's heads and I really do not want to. I don't over analyze real life situations or people. I save that for when I'm reading fiction. Lol Sometimes things really are just what they seem and don't need interpretation or analysis. People often assume when I tell them I went to school for psych. That I can or am trying to get in their heads. The comments I get by strangers when I tell them are a turn off! Lol I don't like telling people that I took psychology too much. It doesn't mean I'm super intelligent or can get in your head!
So hopefully you find these facts interesting? If not, oh well, it was still fun writing them!
