    I'm half Dutch and half Norwegian. I get a migraine whenever big weather/air pressure changes are incoming. My blood pressure is very low, so I used to go "blind" and get dizzy when standing up too quickly, but I learned to counter that by heightening my blood pressure through exercise, and using that process consciously until it became a subconscious process when standing up. The body is such a weird creature...

    I have the exact same thing with the low blood pressure and standing up too quickly. I've only fully fainted once and it's because the delivery man had a package I was eagerly awaiting and I pretty much rocket propelled myself out of the chair. I freaked him out but I came to shortly after.

    Apparently there's some Irish blood running through these veins! I'm finding out some weird stuff about my ancestry. Also my paternal grandfather had his own big band! (Love big band music!)  He could play ANYTHING.... except the 88's. He taught himself by ear too.

    My MATERNAL grandfather also taught himself how to play an instrument.  Know what HE played? 

    The piano! :D

    I didn't speak a word of English until I was around 11-12 years old, and it was a while after that before I became really fluent at it. I never developed an accent like my parents though, probably due to how young I was when I picked it up.

    My temp job at the moment is teaching English to non-native speakers. Funny how that works.

    I love watching old Planet of the Apes movies.


    And I'm going to be sorry I replied, because now this topic will show up forever in my "My Content" list, which is what I check to see how all the posts I comment in are doing.....

    I don't limit my love to gender. Why only eat one color of M&M's when you can have them all?

    Btw, I also don't eat M&M's because too much sugar.

    This next one's a bit deep, since others have shared deep stuff... read at your own risk.  I figure now's as good a time as any.

    I was bullied all my life throughout school. When I was just a little boy, this severely autistic kid kept pushing me, shoving me and slamming me into trees. Of course he'd tell me not to tell anyone or he'd kill my parents. Of course, I believed him like an idiot. When my folks finally did find out,  no one would do anything about it because he "was developmentally disabled and incapable of such acts".

    Yeeeeah.  The worst part was he was killed by his father. Gun to his head. Father then shot himself.

    Middle school was more teasing than anything else.  High school is when the severe taunting and ridicule started. Every single day, the same guy. Mocking m, my family and my beliefs. Forcing lewd and obscene things in my face. Hardcore Porn, nasty drawings, sex toys, grotesque videos... it was a nightmare. Teachers never knew.   No, I don't like that stuff. It doesn't appeal to me and there's nothing wrong with that.  It got so bad.... I had thought of suicide several times. Kept calling me hideous, dispicable names because I didn't like that stuff, nor did I drink or smoke (Illegal under the age of 18, 21 for booze, anyway). he'd compare me to terrorists. Wut? (May seem sily, but at the time it was dead serious)

    Then I knocked him on his ass one day after I've had too much.  His head hit the pavement. He didn't move or respond.

    I was so sure I had killed him... he was alive though, and never went to the hospital for it.
    So yeah, that's he biggest hidden fact about me no one knows--well, you folks know it now. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hope this doesn't spoil your day.

    3- I hate taking selfies.It makes me think I'm ugly while actually I'm really handsome

    4- I have PHOBIA of dogs.When I see a lovely pooch running around his master,I run like there's no tommorow.

    5- I'm a slow runner.But when I see a dog,I run like Usain Bolt.

    6- (I think I shared this one before)Everybody calls me incompetent at soccer just because I'm a Goalkeeper.

    7- I don't know why,But I'm extremly attached to Scandinavian countries.(Norway,Sweden,Iceland....)

    8- Quizzes say I have an Icelandic personality ! (Check the spoiler tag in my signature)

    9- My hair is sort of blonde.People mistake me for an European.

    10-(I wanted to keep this one hidden but...)Pretty much every girl in my class looks at me in a creepy way (You got what I'm meaning right ?)

    So.

    I hate RPing. I don't just dislike it. I HATE IT. With every fiber of my being, I hate it with a powerful passion. It makes me sick, It makes me want to puke. It makes me want to sob uncontrollably. 
    Now that I've shocked and probably appalled you all, you may or may not want to find out why.  Not that it will matter...

    Once upon a time I used to RP with the best of em. I was happy, it was all in good fun and things were amazing. I made friends. We were happy.
    But then, things started taking a turn for the worse.  Fights would break out IN REAL LIFE over someone and their pretend girlfriend.  Over the months, I witnessed real friendships, sometimes IRL (offline) friendships being torn apart over a stupid RP.  one young man resorted to self-mutilation. over what? pretend kingdoms? pretend friends in a pretend realm?

    then the worst of it happened. 

    Every day became sad and stressful. finally, one girl took her own life. SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE IN REAL LIFE OVER A FAKE RP.  I had had enough.  Why? some pretend villain stole her pretend boyfriend. No. JUST NO!!!  ;_;   D:< ;_;

    Months later, guess who "magically" reappeared? THAT SAME GIRL. The whole thing was staged between herself and one other person. But the damage had already been done.  I screamed. I cried. I prayed. I dayum near choked on my own tears because I was led to believe someone had taken their own life.  *sighs*
    ever since then, i've avoided it like the plague. I've tried so, SO very hard to get back into it but... I.. I just can't.

    So that's my earth-shattering secret.  I know many of you whom I know thrive on RP and love doing it, and I can't and won't let myself stop you fro doing what you love. So, go ahead and feel free to stop talking to me or whatever.  I'm sorry.  So very sorry.

    But fair's fair. I did warn you.

    You don't have to like what happened here, but please don't laugh at me, ok? ._.

    Aw man that's terrible! I cannot believe the extremes some people throw themselves to over something imaginary. It's shocking! Scary even to see how upset they can get.

    Here's some of mine.

    • I hate flying cockroaches with a passion. Frogs? Okay. Spiders? Alright. Lizards? I can deal with it. But Flying Cockroaches? NOPE. BURN THE ENTIRE APARTMENT DOWN.
    • I have Lung Cancer. Not really that much of a big deal nowadays since I've gotten pretty much used to it. But it is a dayum chore to breathe sometimes. I also have Epilepsy, causing me to black out at random moments but it doesnt happen everyday. For example: I'm typing down a lesson plan for my students then the next thing that'll happen would be me waking up on the floor. Again, I'm pretty much used to it. I think of it as a permanent nuisance rather than a severe condition.
    • I didnt get any course on audio engineering (I'm a Philosophy Major) but I still got a job along that field that happens to be working for big industries.
    • I HATE dealing with money through internet. It makes me so dayum paranoid.

    When I need power I raise my hands into the air and shout "THE POWER WITHIN!"

    Kind of a mantra thing. Probably from watching to much Dragonball as a child
