To be honest (already? hehe!) I have been seeing this award around for a while and I thought it was pretty cool. However, nobody ever tagged me for it, so I never got to share some of my secrets. Now, I advise you all to be afraid, very afraid Mwahahaha! (That was my evil laugh. No good? Damn! =/)
Well, the Honest Scrap works like this. I will list 10 true things about myself and then tag 10 more blogs to go through the process. So, let's get started.
1 - I started college back in Brazil when I was 17 years old. Studied English Language for 4 years, never graduated though, because of one class. Started teaching at 17 and taught English as a Second Language for 7 years.
2 - I drank my first beer at 14 and got really drunk and sick for the first time at 17. Worse scenario with alcohol was with Tequila. Drank 21 shots in 40min (lost count after that) and ended up at the hospital taking glucose. I can only remember the next morning, waking up with my mom saying: "Do you have a hangover?" me: "No" mom: "That's a shame" LOL
3 - I am the queen of falling down. I have fallen in a movie theater, at school, at the school I taught 7 times, at least 11 times on nights out, 3 at restaurants (including last week), at a supermarket, on the street a few times and probably more that I can't recall hehe.
4 - I love drawing. I draw women's clothes and some abstract. I have been drawing for a long time, thought I haven't drawn in a while.
5 - I had my biggest Smex Fantasy realized on my second time. Being tied up and blindfolded. There were clothespins, whipped cream, ice and candle wax involved as well. Best night EVER!
6 - I lost the big V at 23. No regrets. Perfect timing and it was with the right person. I was not in love and it didn't last. However, it was absolutely worth it. Refer to "truth" #5 =)))
7 - My first Paranormal Book was "Narcisisus in Chains" by Laurel K. Hamilton. I got it as a gift. I bought 2 more after thatm but then couldn't find anymore back in Brazil. Years later (around Oct. last year) I heard of the Vampire Diaries series. I read them all, then all the other LJ Smith books. Followed that with The Twilight Series (read it 5 times) and the rest is history. 335 Books Later you can find me Reviewing Books here =)
8 - I Have Poli-Arthritis Rheumatoid Juvenile since I was 11. It is an inflammation of the articulations. In my case in all of them. I am in constant pain because of it, but I have been through a lot of treatments and it has been stationary for a while now. I am thankful for this disease though. It has made me grow is way I never thought I would. I was supposed to be in a wheel chair by now. I was supposed to not be able to work or drive. I have never let this disease take the best of me and I have always tried to keep a positive attitude about it.
9 - I love playing pool and Drinking beer. I am pretty good at both. I've been better in beer drinking, but I haven't drank much lately =)
10 - I love to dance. Never did it seriously, but love it. I can samba pretty well, since I have been doing it since I was 6 years - old. Oh and I learned how to read at 5 years old, mostly by myself. Always reading Billboards and everything around. It was a pain for my school to place me. Too young for 1st grade and I knew too much for needing to be alphabetized.
Oh well, that's it. I think I might have been too honest. Though there is nothing there I am ashamed of. I live with no regrets. Every experience I have been through has its own value and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.
