UPDATE: Follow up post to this can be found here – 19 extra facts about me.
I don’t post too much about myself, what I like and dis like, my characteristics, etc.
And I know most of my blog posts are about life lessons and how to’s, so I thought I’d do a different type of post today.
I’m gonna give you a peek into 37 things I’ve experienced, I do, I’ve seen, or dis like. So lets get straight to it!
37 Little Known Facts About Me
1. I hate raisins
I’ve always hated the taste of raisins. It’s not necessarily because of a bad experience I’ve had. They just don’t agree with my taste buds.
Even If it’s been dipped in ice cream or cake.
2. I’m no expert cook, but I can cook for myself
I’ve known how to cook food for myself since I was 16 years old. I did a little before then, but I was taught how to cook and knew how to cook in general by 16.
I can cook foods like –
And I’m good at mixing the foods I make with seasoning and sauces to make it taste good. 🙂
3. I’m not a film buff
I’ve watched a lot of good films before, but I can’t say I’m into films to be honest with you. It would take a lot to convince me to go to the cinema with you.
If you can pull that off, I’ll be impressed. 😉
If you speak to anybody close to me, or who knows me personally, they’ll tell you the same thing. I’m addicted 2 oriental food like Chinese and Thai food.
5. I dislike snow
Which is why I dislike winter weather. It’s too damn cold for me. I can’t stand it.
And would rather eat razor sharp nettles (exaggeration), than deal with freezing cold weather.
6. My favorite animal is a crocodile
Crocodiles are strong, feared by many, and are extremely good at adapting to their environment. And they’ve adapted to their environment since dinosaur times.
Crocodiles were one of the few reptiles to have survived.
I admire that because it reminds me of life. In life you have to adapt, you have to change, and you have to be nimble to move with the times.
The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is the same car that appeared in the James Bond film – Die Another Day.
I was barely a teenager when this film came out (2002).
8. When I was younger, I played for a football team called – The Manchester Eagles
Back in my football days, I played for a local football team in Manchester. That was when I was really into football. I have no interest these days.
9. When I was younger….
When I was around 5 years old or something like that, I was riding on my little bike. And at one point, I tripped over my bike (must have hit a bump), then hit the floor at full force.
And as I hit the floor, my face was scraping along the concrete. I had blood all down my face from top to bottom. Yep, shit got ugly that day.
Dragon ball z is my top anime-cartoon of all time. And was the one I grew up watching as a child on Cartoon Network.
Bleach on the other hand, is something I discovered not too long ago after a friend recommended me to watch it.
If you’re into Anime, check em out.
Small talk is necessary at times, and sometimes unavoidable, but I’d rather have deep conversations with people.
Yes, I’m talking to you. Having deeper, personal, intellectual conversations makes the conversation more interesting.
Not only that, but it makes it easier for me to relate to you, and for you to relate to me. That’s what being human is all about, right?
12. I don’t eat fruits
Whether it’s apples, pineapples, bananas, grapes, you name it. I don’t eat it. I think it’s too much headache to deal with, like peeling the skin, avoiding seeds, etc.
I’ll drink fruit juice drinks, but I won’t eat fruit.
13. I’m a vegetable kinda guy
I eat vegetables all day everyday. I’m healthy like that. And I’ll eat pretty much any vegetable you can think of.
14. I’ve experienced bullying before
I know how it feels to be bullied. I know what it’s like to be bullied. I know it from personal experience and from observation as well.
I’m glad I dealt with it because It’s made me stronger, smarter, and the person I am today.
You can read a little more about my experience here.
15. I like animal documentaries
I love learning about new animals, how animals operate, adapt to their environments, and the science behind it.
I’m intrigued by stuff like that. It’s a good way to widen your perspective.
16. I used to be a fan of wrestling
I don’t understand the fascination people have for wrestling, as hypocritical as that sounds. There was a time when I loved it though when I was younger.
17. I have Jamaican in my blood….
And I can’t even speak Jamaican. At least, not fluently.
18. The only reason I started using Facebook….
Was because everybody kept bugging me to sign up and get on Facebook. So eventually… I did. I was a slow-starter with tech back then.
19. When I was younger….
I used to do karate locally. I trained up until green and orange belt. I’m not sure which one is higher than the other, but yeah. I got to green and orange belt.
20. People misunderstand my emotions.
Ever had that experience where people misjudge your facial expression for something it’s not? I get that sometimes.
People can misunderstand my facial expressions for being angry, miserable, sad, or bored, when that isn’t even the case.
21. My biggest weakness….
Is feeling hungry, when I’m hungry, because I feel SO, DAMN, WEAK. No exaggeration.
22. I never spoke until I was 4/5 years old
I guess me and Albert Einstein have something in common, eh?
23. I’ve never bought an umbrella
You know the stereotype, right? How men who wear umbrella’s are gay. That’s ridiculous, but that’s not the reason I’ve never bought an umbrella.
I’m just not interested in having one, and I don’t see the need to have one. Regardless of how rainy the weather gets.
24. I’m not a fan of pets
I can’t ever see myself owning a pet at present, or in the future. I’m not a pet kinda guy. But If I was to have a pet, it would be a cat.
Probably because they’re lazier, less work, and easier to deal with. Meow!
Too many girls love to shower themselves in make up to look and feel pretty.
That’s not necessary in the slightest. I find the prettiest girls, and the ones I’m most attracted to are those who rely less on make up. And have more of a natural look.
You can’t beat natural, so don’t be mislead and fooled by airbrushed pictures you find in beauty magazines.
26. I don’t watch traditional TV
Everybody’s always screaming and shouting about the latest episode of Eastenders, Coronation street, jersey shore, Jeremy Kyle, and the only way is Essex.
TV bores me. Most of it is brainwashing, time-consuming nonsense. It’s just not my thing.
Newspapers like the Manchester evening news, daily mail, and any other bullshit newspaper doesn’t interest me.
I don’t read newspapers, buy them, or even look at the first page of a newspaper.
Too much negativity. I’m pretty sure you’ll agree, unless you read it that much you’ve forgotten how much trash you’re dropping into your brain.
28. I’m the calmest, coolest person you’ll ever meet
Is that to say I don’t get angry? Of course not. I’m not perfect. But I am calm, cool, even under pressure.
And it takes a lot to piss me off, upset me, or get on my nerves.
29. I wear odd socks and I cannot lie…
You other brothers can’t deny. 😉
30. I hate peanuts…
So If you ever take me out to dinner, to your house, or anywhere of the sort, don’t try it. Peanuts make me sick, so sick that i’ll throw up on you.
31. I’m a night owl…
And when I think about it, I know a lot of friends and associates who are also night owls… My immediate family aren’t night owls though.
32. I love creative designs on clothing
You could say it’s the hip hop in me, or the creative in me. But either way, I’m in love with graphic tee’s, tops, hats, jeans, you name it.
It’s a form of self expression. 🙂
33. I love solitude
That’s right. I love solitude more than the average person. Probably because I’m more introverted than extroverted. Having my own space is crucial.
34. Some people are afraid of needles, but not me
Even when I was younger I wasn’t scared of needles in the slightest. I took it like a military soldier, and just got on with it.
And I’ve done so ever since. But hey, that’s just me.
35. I’ve almost been run over by a car
One time after I crossed the road, a van was passing by that almost hit me head on. It managed to scrape me, and budge me a little bit as it turned, but that’s about it.
I got off lucky. I’m blessed.
Pokemon was one of my favorite video games. Yep, that’s right, Pokemon. I loved it, and I still do.
37. I love straightforward people
Entrepreneurs and musicians like Larry Winget, Grant Cardone, Chamillionaire, 50 cent, and Kanye West are straightforward people. And I love that about them.
I love it when people are straightforward with me, and tell me straight. Rather than take an offense to that, I respect it.
If I do something wrong to you, and you let me know about it, I’d respect that. If you have something to tell me, and you tell me, I respect that.
And If there’s something important you’re dying to say to me, and you say it, I respect that. Just by doing that, my respect for you jumps up a lot of levels.
So there you have it.
