Hello darlings,

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.

10. I rely on my friends but I manage well on my own.

11. I was going to get married in Cyprus but he cheated on me. After that I was alone for 7 years.

12. Nick is the love of my life.

13. I hate to iron my clothes.

14. I love to read books.

15. I love to read e-books.

16. I have an implant tooth.

17. I used to wear braces. 

18. My teeth are still crooked.

19. No, I don't have an obsession with teeth.

20. I enjoy de-cluttering more than Monica from Friends.

21. I adore dancing and have trained for many different kinds. I do hip-hop the best!

24. I can't eat rabbit.

25. I wish I could be a vegetarian.

26. Each time I have my hair cut, I hurt.

27. I don't like being lied to.

28. My first trip was in Italy with an exchange student program when I was 16 years old. I loved it! I stayed for almost a month and made great friends. I hated Venice due to the smell.

29. I love to travel with Nick. It's my favorite thing in the world!

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?

33. I have also tried Lamaze breathing during flying. The girl next to me was sure I was going to give birth or something. I shit you not!

34. I love the opera.

35. If all the cats that have been through my life (and houses) were alive today I would be a crazy cat lady for sure!

38. I lost my daughter's twin just before making it into the 12th week.
