25 Things About Me

There’s a Facebook equivalent of a chain letter making the rounds, where people are asked to write 25 things and then tag 25 friends who are asked to repeat the process. As a personal policy I do not pass on things that require me to “pass it on” to X people. However, I enjoyed reading and learning 25 things about my friends so I thought it’s only fair to share 25 things about me, too. Plus, it’s another post to add to my lacking-in-frequent-updates blog.

  1. I trained my cats to: sit, sit up, shake, high-five, gimme-five, gimme-ten, stand, say hello, say goodbye, wave, salute (my boyfriend helped with the last two)
  2. My first home in America was in Colorado
  3. I won two spelling bees in elementary school
  4. I got to attend my dream university and was accepted via early action admission
  5. I’m working at my dream company and had to apply at least two times
  6. One of my first memories is of Las Vegas lights at night
  7. I have a multinational family: I was born in Vietnam; my sister in Hong Kong (then under British rule); my brother in America
  8. I need to have music when I’m driving or working out
  9. I prefer donating money to animal causes because they get euthanized if there aren’t enough resources, and humans domesticated them for our needs/wants so we owe them
  10. I generally have a very strong aversion toward cheesy chick flicks but once in a while reassure my boyfriend that I’m feminine enough to like a good girly movie
  11. I’m a democrat but want the republicans to keep the hardcore liberals in check
  12. I am proud to be a blood donor and cried when I was turned down when my blood iron level was too low one time
  13. I prefer beautiful weather over seasons
  14. I fell out of the raft in the rapids and survived to tell about it, with photographic evidence
  15. I like taking photos
  16. I like helping other people share their photos by volunteering for Coppermine Photo Gallery
  17. Superman is my favorite hero
  18. I’ve been a cradle robber a few times but not on purpose
  19. I find negative people to be emotionally and mentally draining
  20. I didn’t like roller coasters until I was peer pressured into riding one in junior high
  21. I have not and will not do drugs but think people should be able to use them if they want
  22. I love gadgets and I like to name them
  23. Three of my favorite sounds are: the happy purr of a cat, the uncontrollable giggle of a young child, and the loving heartbeat of my boyfriend
  24. I started college as a fuzzy (non techy) but ended up loving the natural and computer sciences thanks to awesome professors
  25. I feel extremely fortunate and thankful for the people, cats, and comforts that I have in my life

  1. Hey Thu,

    Thanks for sharing! I too would prefer to write about myself on my blog than Facebook – thanks for the inspiration :)

    Re #24 – I laughed at this one, I started college as a techie and wound up as a fuzzy due to awesome professors.
