20 random things not so many people knew about me.

The first job I ever wanted to do was to be a builder and build my own house. 

My best friend is a girl named Louise. We've been best friends since we were five and are inseparable. I consider her family. 

I have four scars: appendix, hernia, a gash down my left leg (drunk biking accident) and a scar between my left thumb and forefinger from where a girl jabbed her nail in my hand when I was ten. 

I guess you now know I have had two operations. 

I have five tattoos. 

I had four facial piercings in uni. I now only have one. I also had the web pierced between my right thumb and forefinger - which got infected. 

I and my father saw a ghost when I was younger in my house. 

I get really irate at business men who wear white sports socks and people who clap their hands when they find something funny. 

I freak out if I see crossed cutlery - or anything crossed really. I have to lay it parallel.  

I hate confrontation and simply walk away from it. 

I don't get phased by much. 

I have no problem spending all my money on clothes. Ill happily spend money on clothes - even if it means I can't afford to go out and wear them 

When I'm sad I like to go for walks around the city by myself. I particulary am fond of cemeteries - Yanaka - an old area of Tokyo. I like to read books there and read old tomb stones.  

I still think about my first love daily. 

People say I come across as confident but Im a very self conscious type and can be shy.  

When I was in school and off sick, I would always spend the day watching two movies: 'friend green tomatoes at the whistle stop cafe' and 'Singles.' 

I remember the first time I told the time. I was 4 and it was a summer afternoon. I walked into the living room and saw my mum and said 'its 4:20pm.' 

I only have one regret and that was that I didn't study hard enough at uni. I feel like I wasted a lot of potential. 

I make sure I find something to smile about everyday. I believe smiling definitely benefits your health. 

One thing that constantly freaks me out is that I seem to glance at the clock and its 9:11 am/ pm. I catch that time at least two times a week.

Was tooling around your blog a little last night and then again today. Interesting to see the different spin of fashion in your world. Thanks for following me over at the swing, sorry it's a little boring fashion wise, right now. Too many fish in the sea, (pun intended)
Nice to meet you!
