Kathy tagged me on this one several months ago, and now I’m finally in the mood for talking about myself 😆

  1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
  3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  4. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I’ll have to break the rules here, because I don’t know of 7 bloggers, but when I get to know them, I promise to send this one to them 😆

These are seven random facts about me:

1. I grew up far away from everything – yep, I’m a country bumpkin – but it was a wonderful childhood in Denmark. I had the world’s biggest playground just outside the door, and I did spend much of my childhood climbing trees, playing around, building things.. and I felt really old, or “grown up” that day I was allowed to hand an axe and chop firewood.

2. My hair was white and very thin until I was 3 years old, then it changed.. and from the age of 5, it turned darker and darker.. now I have thick, dark brown hair. I hope I have my grandmother’s (father’s mother) type of hair – she’s 69 and still have dark hair.

3. I started to teach myself English, before we had English lessons in school in 3rd grade – I loved listening to music, and I was annoyed that I didn’t understand the lyrics, so I sat there with my mother’s dictionary trying to understand different lyrics. Lyrics I remember translating, is songs like Supertramp’s “the Logical Song”, and also some Michael Jackson lyrics.

4. I’m not good at jumping or running.. my body is just not built for those kinds of activities. But I am very strong, thinking about my gender – I often beat men in hand wrestling, and I rarely ask for help when moving heavy things. I’m good at hiking, and I can keep walking for hours without getting tired… good for me, because I simply love hiking/walking.

5. I only have one phobia – and that is arachnophobia. And that is in spite of that I come from a country, where spiders are harmless. I don’t know what I should to do in countries, inhabited by venomous spiders! Yuk.. I’ll panic..

6. A weird fact: I can scratch my ears with my feet 🙄

7. I have many goals in life, but one of them is to learn at least 10 languages before I leave this world – Right now I’m fluent in: Danish, English, Faroese, I want to improve my Swedish, Norweigan and German, and I want to learn Spanish, French, Icelandic and Italian. If I happen to learn these languages while I’m still young, I’ll just add some more languages to my “languages to learn”-list 😉
