I have been reading all the wonderfully personal posts from many blogger friends these last weeks about 59+1 things about themselves. This whole thing started from this wonderful blog Little Box of Luv and it has spread in our little Greek blogger community. Usually I don't share personal things on the net, I am an internet introvert in some ways. This time however I find I want to reach out and share some things about me cause I am weird that way!
So here goes nothing:
1. While writing this post's title, I kept thinking to myself, "no one cares babe"!!!
2. I am right handed.
3. I am not right in my mind.
4. My first memory is of the 1981 earthquake in Athens. I was 3 years old. I shouldn't remember this so that confirms number 3 of this list.
5. I have been crocheting and knitting and making jewelry since I was 6 years old.
6. I have a PhD in Chemistry/Biochemistry which I completed in 3.5 years.
7. I am very proud of my PhD.
8. I worked 4 jobs during the time and it was the hardest thing I ever did in my life so far.
9. I gave birth naturally. I enjoyed it very much. It was NOT the hardest thing I ever went through.

30. After a very bad plane trip from Cyprus to Greece I am scared shitless of flying.
31. Whenever I need to travel by plane I get drunk before getting on the plane.
32. I have been warned not to cry so hard cause I scare the other passengers. On the plane. That is on the thin air. That it can crash in the hard earth AT ANY TIME! How can any one (which has a number 3 on their list) not cry about that?
