Tag! I'm it?!

Our blog was tagged in the "List twenty five random facts about yourself" by Learn to fly.

Here are the rules:
Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits or goals about you. Then tag 25 people, including the person who tagged you.

So like I originally started this post and left it in draft and while I was busy at work, making money, Controlled Chaos decided to fill in some blanks.

I could have and should have deleted some of the things she wrote, but honestly she knows me so well.

It's quite sad and just goes to show how obsessed she really is with me.

(But in all honesty I couldn't stop laughing at some of the stuff she wrote. So I left them. And I added my own commentary in parenthesis)

So 1-13 are from her. And the rest is from yours truly.


1. I'm those annoying drivers that drives right at the minimum speed limit.

2. I used to be very sensitive, now I'm just moody sensitive. (Whatever!)

3. I'm a proud, blonde, American who wanted to be Mexican while growing up. (I really did! Mexican girls are HOT!)

4. EVERY TIME I start an important conversation, I start with "ummm" and "so like"...

5. I love answering a question from a friend or family member with another attitudey question (I don't give attitude to everyone, I only give attitude to her and my sisters).

6. Up until some time ago most of my conversations started with "I had a dream..." and not the MLK Jr. kind..(This still goes on, she just doesn't listen to me)

7. I LOVE my friends..(some of them. The rest I just like)

8. I DOUBLE LOVE my family, but they're convinced I don't show it enough..such drama queens sigh..of course everyone wants to be with me.

9. I have one of those contagious laughs.

10. I have a hate-like complex with my career which has yet to take off. (No one wants to hire me. I've been to like a trillion interviews. And everyone says the same thing. We're hiring in the fall. blah blah blah.)

11. I'm a work-aholic. (I just work two jobs. Hardly a work- aholic.)

12. Sometimes I'm the only one keeping the blog alive (I just want to be on Blogs of Note one day, is that SO HARD TO ASK FOR?! SERIOUSLY there are just some people who DON'T deserve to be on there. And it's NOT fair.)

13. I started making my friends sound like me when they talk...sigh...seriously being so amazing is so problematic sometimes (It seriously is!)

14. I've had so many nicknames in the past.Here's just a few:
  • Fajita
  • Happy
  • Fairy
  • Fairy Nugget
  • Fanny
  • Foffle
  • Fifi
  • Fefe
  • Strawberry
  • Faikhana (don't ask. My brother and guy cousins are SO mean)
  • Farn
  • Princess
  • Potato Princess
  • Farina (you know like the cream of wheat)
15. I try not to be a sensitive freak. I try my best too. But it's hard. And if I can be sensitive to others sensitivity, why cant they reciprocate it?

16. In relation to number 15, There are five things I hate being called. (If you're joking it's one thing. But even still, if you're joking I might get offended and/or upset) :
  • fat
  • lazy
  • stupid
  • ugly
  • boring
(And I've been called these things before. Like a lot.)

17. I used to want to live in Alaska.

18. When my sister is mad at me, and shes driving, she speeds because she knows it pisses me off. When I'm mad at her, and I'm driving, I slam on the brakes every five seconds because that pisses her off.

19. I was born and raised and still live in "da hood".

20. There are people I truly admire out there that just so happen to be younger than me. (For some reason I find that odd about myself)

21. I'm a woman of my word. If I make a promise to you, I will try my darn hardest to make it happen and/or fulfill that promise. Even if I die trying.

22. I didn't truly grasp the idea of hijab until I got to college.(Even though I was practicing it before then)

23.I don't believe in the death sentence.

24. Sometimes I feel like Grey's Anatomy has helped me become a better Muslim. Don't ask how...Because I really don't know how to explain it myself.

25. Truth be told (even though a lot of people will disagree) I don't really like talking about myself. I get really awkward and try to divert the attention to someone else. God only knows how my wedding day will be.

So now I guess I have to tag 25 people to this. So I tag YOU--the person reading this. (Because I don't feel like looking for the links of people I'd like to tag) (And yes that includes the other million bajillion people that claim to be "authors" of this blog)

oh yeah. you also don't like some of your friends.
oh and you forgot to add "annoying" as your nickname.

Mrs. Cullen said...

Artistic Logic said...

ok i dont care if you said you can't explain it
you have to explain how Grey's anatomy makes you a better Muslim
I wanna hear this

you missed one of your most important nicknames: Fairy
thanks for forgetting that one

ummm inshallah you'll get a teaching job soon

lastly, theres no way each of us are gonna write 25 things about ourselves...and if we do, we for sure will be on "Blogs of Note" ... for being the most annoying blog in the world

Artistic Logic said...

i called you lazy once in the way, way beginning

you got so mad at me

i was so confused as to why
so I didn't know what to do

I hear you on #15... someone once told me: 'Be sensitive to other's feelings/personalities, but don't be overly sensitive yourself and you'll be fine'.

Perplxintexan said...

I'm guessing your name is farah or fariha.
