My mental picture of ‘me’.

How do I ‘explain’ myself to you? I can tell you about me as much as I like, but I don’t believe you will know me any better. You will probably interpret it in the wrong way and receive a totally different perception of me than I really intended for.

I believe you have to spend at least one whole day with someone to get sort of a clue who and what they are. Unless you are one of ‘those’ who can sum someone up in under a minute. That’s me!! I can do that! Believe me. It’s like a supernatural gift.

Yeah! I know it sounds stupid, but it’s true! I normally keep my thoughts (about the person I summed up in a flash) to myself, because (eeeepL) most of the time thoughts like that are rude.

What am I like? This is really difficult to explain, because I am a diabetic. Yes, a chocolate eating diabetic. My mood fluctuates like the moods of a heavily pregnant woman in need of a smoke, but is not allowed to. I’m like Moody Mac Moody Pants from Moody Ville driving in a car with the number plate “MOODY”. Thumbs up for my boyfriend who had to bear with me and my terrible moods for almost three years. At least I have learned to control these moods of mine, most of the timeJ.

To get to the point, I’m the one who will start to talk to you from behind because I’m bored…which will probably freak you out at first, but later you will realise I’m not that bad. I perceive myself as confident, caring and honest, I stick to my morals and I am very determined. I try to keep my mouth shut when my words may come across as rude and I always want my way with things, especially when it comes to my relationship with my boyfriend (I am working very hard on changing that). Please don’t tell him I admitted it to you.

I’m very laid back. You do what you do; I really don’t mind ‘what’ it is. I dislike people bad mouthing one another and I’m not a very big fan of children or politics. All of them nag too much. I HATE it when someone is being dishonest, so I truly believe honesty is the best policy.

I love animals to bits! All of them. I pretty much want to work with animals for the rest of my life. I like meeting and interacting with people, but I probably like animals more than people. I don’t know if there is something wrong with that picture, ha-ha. That being said, I love my family to death! I am a total mommy’s/daddy’s girl. Give me two days then I will start explaining to you why I need to go home because I miss my parents. I alsolove the fresh smell of nature, the beauty thereof and the natural way it takes its course…fixing what is broken.

I believe in second chances, and definitely in “what goes around comes around”. I also believe you have to treat others as you would want to be treated yourself. I believe you have to live the way you want to and shouldn’t give in to the trend you think you have to follow. I believe you have to make hundreds of mistakes to finally get it right and you have to deal with the people who judge you for it, for they are stupid and know absolutely nothing J

I can probably write you hundreds of pages about myself, but I won’t bore you with all the details. In a nutshell, this is me.

Basically, I would like people to see me as this, my picture of how I see myself.
