100 things about me.

Yep, it's come to this.
Everyone else in the blogosphere seems to have done it I'm just about bored enough tonight to do it myself.

*deep breath*
Here goes:

  1. I jumped out of my bedroom window and ran away from home after being sent to my room while I was still in junior school.
  2. I stayed at my best friends house all afternoon before trying to sneak back into the house.
  3. I got caught by my next door neighbour who alerted the rest of the neighbourhood I'd been found, it took 2 days before mum realised I'd seriously hurt myself
  4. I still have a hairline fracture across my right foot to show for it.
  5. I have 3 younger brothers
  6. I am the eldest
  7. I like to meet new people
  8. So far I've been lucky regarding my net meets

  13. I am a karaoke queen
  14. I used to sing for a living in a covers duo called Electric Blue on the pub/ club scene

  16. I still miss being in a band, writing songs was fun.
  17. I love pictures featuring beautiful landscapes and frequently wish I was in one.
  18. I say I never want children but secretly I just think I don't deserve them
  19. I can be very bitter about past relationships, not because of what they did to me, but because I allowed them to do it.
  20. I try not to be bitter ever and endeavor to put all the crap behind me
  21. I have trust issues but I try to ignore them
  22. Sometimes I think there is another person in my head guiding my actions, this makes me wonder if I should seek help...

  24. I don't always succeed
  25. I'm horrible to be around when I'm on my period
  26. I don't handle pain at all well
  27. I hate that that makes me a stereotype
  28. I have chronic fatigue syndrome, this means I can be nasty a lot because I'm nearly always in pain.

  44. I used to believe in tree spirits and I'd aplogise if we'd damaged a tree during play
  45. Sometimes I still think I have some kind of connection to the world around me, I have moments where I feel a little 'fey'

  62. I wish I had more ambition and drive
  63. I can play the drums a little but I stopped to take up bass guitar
  64. I stopped playing because of an ex boyfriend, he was a fantastic drummer and he often ridiculed my feeble attempts
  65. I hate that I allowed him to make me feel that way and wish I'd made him pay for the kit of mine that he gave away when I left (and the bass amp, bloody lovely it was - Nolan valve amp, gorgeous warm sound to it...)
  66. I sold my first drum kit to pay for my first motorbike

  89. When I was 19 I missed my final exam in theatre studies because my bitch housemate switched off my alarm so it wouldn't disturb her - despite being 3 floors above me.
  90. I lied about it to my dad and step mum and told them I passed and got a 'C'
  91. It's the reason they didn't speak to me for 3 months after they found out, I felt no remorse about the lie, I was just angry that my stepmum had opened my mail and started the argument.
  92. I have an ok figure, if I ever exercised it'd be a fantastic figure - I'm just too unmotivated

Wow, what an insight into you.

i've avoided doing the 100 things because a) it sounds like a lot of effort, b)I don't think there are 100 things I could say that anyone would care to hear, and c) I think I'm really a bit too secretive (plus I lie to myself all the time!)

Thanks for coming to see my blog earlier.
