The TMI tag
I have been thinking about doing this kind of video for quite some time, but I just can not get myself to do it. I don't know if it is because it's an "oldish" video- I mean so many people have done it, but it is just not happening. Maybe it is because I like to elaborate and can't only give yes, no or straight forward answers. It's a curse. I am sure it.
BUT, wait for it...here is another thing you did not know about me. I LOVE quizes, questionares, random questions, tmi's, you name it. I can not help myself. When I was at school we use to have this random questions we would write down on a paper and give it to friends and not-friends to answer to get to know each other. I LOVED it. I think it's got something to do with the fact that I like the idea that someone cares about my silly answers, or maybe it is purely for entertainment. But yah, I am a sucker when it comes to this stuff.
In the past week we received, well I did, a few questionnaires from people working at the university conducting research for their PHD and ect. I couldn't help it. I answered all of them ss accurately as I could (I hope I did not mess up any data though...).
So, now you know a random, useless fact about me. The End.
I am kidding.
I am going to do the TMI tag (as seen on YouTube), but I will be writing it down. And believe me, I am going to enjoy this thoroughly.
So here we go!

2. Ever been in love?
Yes, many a times. Still am.

Yes, I was the break-upper. Till this day I regret my decision. In all honesty. Purely because I could have made better choices and handled the situation differently.

11. Something you miss?
I miss our winter holidays with my family. My parents still does this, but seeing that I am not in the house any more I can not tag along. We went on holiday for 2-3 weeks and visited places like Namibia, Kruger National Park, Addo, Oudtshoorn and a few others. I saw places I would never seen if it wasn't for my dad. And I loved those times. It's special memories and I miss it. Of course also the holidays we did not go away and we would spend hours playing Monopoly and building houses with the double bunk bed we had. That's what memories are made off.
12. Favourite song?
At the moment it is "Dream for you" -Casting Crowns of their new CD Thrive. This song absolutely speaks to my heart. BUT my ultimate favourite song of all time is Testify-Avalon. Before I had their CD I use to go to CUM Books and listen to it there over and over. Creepy I know.

This is actually a difficult questions. You can not just name a few. A person is complex and there is little stuff you can not really pin and name that add's to the whole "What do I want", but to name a few trust, honesty and someone I can have fun with. Build memories

I am afraid of the dark. Believe it or not. I also have a fear of failing.
28. Last thing that made you cry?
The medical system rules of our country. Yes, I balled my eyes out. I was so mad. They set up a new rule that really makes it difficult with regard to obtaining chronic medicine and I just lost it with the people being so rude and difficult.
