My story.

This is something I picked up from Facebook. Everyone is doing it and I thought it was pretty fun:

25 Random things you might already know about me.. Or not..

1.) I love singing. Although I wouldn't say that I suck terribly at it I also wouldn't say that I'm great, either. Still - I love doing it. Anywhere, anytime. In the car (where I combine my amazing singing talent with some pretty smooth dance moves), the shower or on the occasional midnight dog walks.

2.) I have a dog named Apollo. He is gay. We have shared our ups and downs over the years and he has an exceptional talent of embarassing me. But I still love him.

3.) When I was in elementary school, a friend and me founded an Emergency Rescue Club for Animals. Our first and last patient was a bumble-bee who had something wrong with its wings. I stepped on it.

4.) I am obsessed with choosing deodorant, shampoo or shower gel. I love trying out their delicious different smells to pick out something new almost every single time. What I also like to buy in unprecedented numbers are cosmetics.

5.) I'm almost always in a good mood. It takes a lot to bring me down. I'm usually smiling and laughing all day long. Still: I'm also a quite serious person. I've spent a lot of time thinking about the world, life or people and I would say that I usually see things very clearly.

6.) I love reading. When a book fully mesmorizes me it's all I can think about. I pick out individual bookmarks for every book I read (movie tickets, flyers, postcards, whatever). They always underline some aspect of the book that is the most important to me. This can also be something really random.

7.) If I had to choose a fictional character that describes me the best, I would say it's Lorelai Gilmore.

8.) Everyone thinks my natural haircolor is so pretty (strawberry blonde), but ever since I was a little child I've always wanted dark brown, blackish curls. Neither is my hair very dark, nor does it reveal any curls. It's so very frustrating.

9.) My future home will probably be somewhere in Colorado. Although I've never actually been to Colorado I've seen enough to know that this could be somewhere I belong. If I won't end up in Colorado, it's gonna be somewhere very much like it.

10.) Further proof of #9 is that I am in love with the U.S.. I couldn't imagine a better place to live. And this is something I already know, considering that I've lived in New Albany, IN for 6 months of my life already.

11.) I love music. I usually need it 24/7 (though I can also get sick of it and thus needing some quiet) and also enjoy getting productive myself, for I can play the piano, the transverse flute and I am currently learning how to play the guitar. People might think that my musical taste is slightly off but I like it nonetheless.

12.) I may act innocent, but deep down I have a pretty dirty mind.

13.) I spend a lot of time with my favorite TV show: Scrubs. I could watch it all day long (if I didn't feel like a couch potato doing so). I quote from it whenever I can.

14.) I utterly love looking at the stars. Everything seems to fall into place when you think about how amazing life truly is. I find the whole clerical institution idiotic, but I do believe (especially in moments like these) that there is something bigger out there that a human mind is not able to comprehend.

15.) My Mom has Multiple Sclerosis. I never talk to anyone about this ever, not even the people who are the closest to me.

16.) I am a car enthusiast to a point where it's almost getting ridiculous. I wouldn't count the times I've made my surroundings jump by yelling "Omg, a Mustang!"..

17.) I've cried in almost every movie/TV show I've ever watched. (I'd like to think that this is due to my sensibility and humanity.. life is so very touching.) To paint you a picture, this list also includes Star Wars III, Batman begins, Scrubs or Free Willy.

18.) I have the PADI Open Water Diver's license. I got it when I was 14. Although I don't excactly kill for opportunities to dive, it's still really fascinating and something totally different.

19.) I deeply hate every little detail about Valentine's Day. I think it's the most preposterous holiday in the entire history of holidays, most of all because there's nothing special about a present you get on Valentine's Day, seeing that it's an obligation to be getting you one. What's so romantic about people following the rules?

20.) I make lists about almost anything. It's downright ridiculous. Lists I've come up with so far are i.e. Lifestyle, What I need/have to do in life, to perfect Life or Style, Recipes I have to research, Songs I have to play on the guitar or the trivial to-do/to-buy-list.

21.) I am fascinated by people. People are so weird.

22.) I've always believed in true love. I believe that with the right person, everything will be naturally perfect, and that it will work out, come what may. Yes, I do believe in magic and signs (and sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith), but I also believe that YOU have to make yourself happy, because no one else is going to do it for you.

23.) I love the mountains. They have their own atmosphere that cannot be put in words. We used to go to Bavaria like every year to go hiking and stuff, and although I wasn't always a fan at the time, I wouldn't want to miss any memory I have of those trips.

24.) One thing that I really wanna do someday is to professionally learn how to surf. And I wanna swim with dolfins or orcas.

25.) I am insanely scared of the dentist. Seriously, I never go there unless I absolutely have to. And if I do, it's like I'm about to get open heart surgery. What I hate about it the most is that you are lying in this really awkward position that makes you feel exposed and totally helpless. Plus: I always have a cavity, which is due to some stupid hormones and will probably stop when I'm about 25.
