10 Things You May Not Know About Me

  1. Once I know something ~ a tidbit of news, a secret ~ I somehow assume that everyone else knows what I do. Makes keeping secrets for me stressful (not to mention potentially dangerous for others) and also leaves me feeling distinctly unspecial. Or humble. Somewhere between those two. It also makes creating lists like 10 Things You May Not Know About Me difficult since on some level I think I'm so obvious that everyone already knows many more than 10 things about me. Circuitous.
  2. I have synaesthesia. However I have probably the most common form of it. And I simply can't imagine NOT having all these colours involved in my daily life.
  3. I see photographic opportunities all around me daily, but have difficulties acting on them.
  4. I can become paralyzed by my perfectionism.
  5. I think I should be living elsewhere. I have difficulty feeling 'at home' most places.
  6. I secretly suspect that I deserve all the goodness that I have right now. I'm okay with this feeling, but I don't know how to express it without it coming off as arrogance.
  7. I don't believe we have a soulmate, and I don't believe we can have only one great love.
  8. I do believe that human beings ~ as a species ~ are incredibly resilient.
  9. I know I don't have all the answers yet. Nor does anybody else.
  10. I think depression and anxiety disorders are on the opposite side of the coin to creativity. They co-exist, and help each other.
