When I say no one, someone is going to know a few of these, but 99% of people out there will have no idea these things relate to me. Some of these things will be more personal than some of you may want to hear, but after all, I’m about the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So here’s 10 things no one really knows about me.
1. I’m very sensitive to sound.
I can’t sleep unless I’m in complete darkness and complete silence. Any noise will bother me and I can’t get to sleep. If I hear someone chewing, I get anxiety. I can’t cope with sounds that won’t go away because they make me feel anxious.
2. I’m suffer from OCD.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not as bad as many people I know, but it’s there. I double check almost everything, triple check sometimes. I’m overly clean and mess drives me bananas. When a room is messy I feel like my life is in shambles.
3. I left high school simply because I was scared.
When I was in sixth form (senior year) I didn’t think I was smart enough to do anything with my life and I didn’t even know what I wanted to do with my life. I was scared of failure so I studied beauty therapy and horse care (not at the same time) I’m now qualified to do your nails and brush a horse, but it set me back 4 years. But here I am now, not bad aye 18 year old Liz?
4. I have VERY high standards BUT I never follow through.
When it comes to dating I have high expectations, but I always let guys get away with things because I’m scared they’ll think I’m “high maintenance” or “frigid.” I’ve let so many men get away with so much, calling me a liar and a cheat just because I didn’t stick to my standards and let them slip through the glass.
5. (continued on from #4) I hate cheaters.
This one may be obvious – but it’s very personal to me. I’ve been cheated on numerous times over my life – once I even caught them in the act. But I’ve also been called a cheat (which I have never done), even when I had solid evidence I was innocent, thanks mum & dad! I know how it feels to have this happen, and if I know of anyone who has done it, I’ll never respect you the same way again. Sorry.
6. I enjoy spending time on my own.
99% of the time I’m at home, I use to hate spending time with people and even going out places with people I like. Now is different, I want to go out and do things with people I don’t even know – but that still doesn’t stop me from being an introvert at heart.
7. I’m majorly attracted to guys that are a lot taller than me.
And majorly turned off to guys to same height as me (sorry beauts!). I don’t know why, maybe it’s all predisposed ideals of what a man and woman should be like, but there’s something about the “I can protect you” stature that just gets me going. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a feminist, I’m all for women looking after themselves, but sometimes you don’t need, but want a 6ft 3 hunk to take care of business (sometimes it’s just faster and good to look at.)
8. I own every issue of UK Vogue since May 2012.
It’s not an obsession. It’s fashion. And I love fashion. (I like to prepare myself for my future career and all that jazz.) (Please give me a job.)
9. I can’t live day-to-day without music.
I studied it for 3 years and I’m glad that I did. I always have a song in my head and I’m always singing. I stopped playing my instruments about 6 months ago, but I played guitar, violin and the drums – as well as singing. I even tried the piano, bass and double bass but they didn’t work out as well.
10. I’m sensitive and I find it hard to forgive.
Please don’t get this one twisted – I am a strong, independent woman (who don’t need no man!), but I am sensitive. I suffer from anxiety and yes, that means I worry about everything. I put on a front when people get mad, or confrontational because the only thing I know how to do is respond how society has taught me to respond. Every time someone has broken me down, I remember it forever. I still hold on to heartbreaks from years ago because they still haunt me heart. I find it hard to let go, therefore I find it hard to forgive people when things go wrong.
That’s me! Do we have anything in common? Let me know.
