10. I hate, hate, hate spiders and earwigs.
Whenever I see one I have a serious panic attack. It all started when I was a little girl and I spent several summers at my grandma’s house. They had gooseberries planted (I love gooseberries), big family of earwigs lived on the plants and I would have to face them every time I wanted to eat some.
9. I am proper Virgo.
For a long time I believed I was Leo (I’m born 23rd of August, which in my country still counts as Leo). However, my personality is totally Virgo like. And I embrace it.
8. I am a quiet person, but once I get to know you I can be pretty
open and crazy.
I’m quite shy, when I don’t know you. But when I feel comfortable, there is no stopping me, I’m talking without a break. I do stupid childish stuff, just to make you laugh. Even though often times, I feel like I annoy everyone around me.
7. I overcame depression, without help. (Yes, it’s possible)
Yes, I had suicidal thoughts (God, even attempts), extremely low self esteem and suffered from very deep depression. I did somehow manage to overcome that. And I’m proud. I’m positive, smiling and happy now.
6. I love to stay home instead of going out.
I am total home buddy. Every time I make plans to spend time socially, I regret it afterwards. I love to stay home with a nice cup of tea and a good movie.
5. I have very vivid and crazy dreams.
My dreams could be shot into full-length movies. Some are creepy, horror like, and others funny and beautiful. I can fly in most of them. I once dreamt I died, like my heart stopped beating and I didn’t breathe anymore. It was an interesting experience even though I woke up surprised to be still alive.
Those are my obsessions. Sadly, where I live, there is no sea. So I enjoy every moment I can while on vacation.
3. I totally changed in the last few years.
This may come as a surprise to some of you. But I am not who I was 3 years ago. But who is right? Well, I walked out of friendships that were destroying me. I started to do what I find good for me, not what others think.
2. My name has been changed during my life from Jana (Jane) to Maria.
Yes, this happened, but not by me. I was just 1 year old. It’s a long story, I might talk about it more later.
1. I have terrible eyesight.
I have to wear glasses and I hate it. But what can we do, I bought the most beautiful ones I could find, hoping it would help. Guess what, it did! So now I feel okay with wearing glasses, because without them… well, let’s say you wouldn’t be reading this.
