Seven random things about Little Miss Moi

enidd tagged me to write about seven random things. Thanks enidd. It's not often I'm tagged and it makes me feel loved.

Racking through my rather random brain, it was hard to come up with anything that seemed worthwhile. But I came up with some boring randomnesses and this is what I got...

1. When I was six, I fell off my bike and hit my head. The result was a black eye that was closed for a week. I think my parents were embarrassed to take me out in public (in case someone thought they did it to me).

2. I'm not a huge fan of the beach. While I don't mind a dip in the ocean, I hate sitting on the beach getting burnt. And sand is overrated. But I swear, I really am a true blue aussie.

3. I took my first overseas trip in utero. My parents went on a holiday to Germany when mum was six months pregnant with me. At least I had a first class position all the way.

4. I finished school, and started university, when I was 16. This is simply a result of the differences in the state education systems in Australia, not because I'm a brainbox. Sorry.

5. Continuing on the non-brainbox theme, I have two degrees. One is a Bachelor of Business in Communication. The other is a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies. Now here's the dumb thing - both are underpinned by the exact same communication theories. So I needed to do two degrees to learn the same thing twice.

6. I have flat feet and bad knees. I use this as a legitimate excuse to avoid high hells, I mean, heels. At all costs.

7. I am one of five children. My anguished mental state is a result of the fact that I was the youngest for six years, before my little brother came along. After that, I was abruptly thrust into middle-child-dom.

As you are in Ukraine I think you should join them in stiletto wearing happiness. I can recommend some great sandal shops!

Sabrina said...

Very interesting! I hate heels, too!

enidd thought your anguished mental state had two causes - molvania and goat eviseration at the weekend.

A true, blue Aussie who hates the beach, there's a first for me!

You Hate the beach? well - I don't like sunbathing, but I LOVE the beach....I just wear a big dorky hat and lather on TONS of sunscreen.

(I cant' wear high heels either. I liked your name for them high hells)

Wow, 16 is really too young to be going to Uni. I took the other route. I was 32 when I started.

Two degrees hey, looks like you got the double whammy - Communication and Academics. You'd think with those two combined they could have saved you the effort.

But then we are talking about Academics teaching Communication, bit of an oxymoron don't you think?

You hate the beach?
Maybe you're doing it wrong.
I love the beach. If I have a nice little beach shack nearby to get cold drinks from an rest inbetween dips.

I hated being at Uni at 17 so I can't imagine it at 16. All the other kids went to bars but I wasn't old enough for the first 6 months.

when I was six I had a trike

the beach is a giant pedicure waiting for my toes and heels

never been over seas -- well Hawaii and Cabo San Lucos... but do they count?

My mom probably ever left the house with me cause I was #8 and she was embarassed

I dropped out of college. However, I think I am just as educated as some of the bumhead college grads I work around. geesh.

I have two degrees, 72 and 73... any hotter or cooler and I'm just not happy

I have flat feet (pronation) too. I have to wear orthotics... so take care of those feet. get your ortho's now while you still have a chance to keep some arch. stay away from hells

You're still a "children" too. No wonder I love you!!!
