Life story

I’m that girl who….

I’m that girl who

Who am I? It a question we all ask. What kind of person am I? What do I like? What don’t I like? Well I’m that girl who…

This idea came to me this week on the train when something hilarious happen. I was stuck in the middle of a train carriage trying to push people out of the way so I could get off (Side note here – in rush hours try to sit or stand next to the train door, don’t get a seat in the middle of a compact train carriage). As I was getting off a guy step on the back of my shoes and it came off. Like both shoes fell off, I didn’t have time (or room) to put it back on so I picked up my shoes, jumped of the train (which by the way which has stopped at the station) and run along the platform in socks while holding my shoes trying to get my second train.

Oh that must have been a sight to be seen! I’m sure other people were asking why is this girl holding her shoes and why is she running in her socks.

Anyway it got me thinking about the kind of girl I am and the funny situation I get myself into. As I’m now in my 30s I have a pretty clear idea on who I am and what kind of girl I am.

I mean I’m that girl who….

  1. Will eat chocolate for breakfast.
  2. Laugh at the most random time.
  3. Will be sitting quietly and then will burst out laughing for no reason.
  4. Will have a full blown giggle fits at the most awkward time.
  5. Can still kiss her toes (a trick my mother in law last week was most impressed I could do!).
  6. Still get confused with 24 hours clocks and will always put the wrong time on documents.
  7. Still read her favorite teenager books.
  8. Love getting her fortune told.
  9. Love visiting a day spa.
  10. Get restless legs and can’t watch a film all the way through.
  11. Still sit everywhere crossed legs.
  12. Sleep no more 4-6 hours a night.
  13. Still eat jelly babies and sweets.
  14. Is really messy, like the untidiest girl on the planet.
  15. Is forever undecided with her hair colour and will constantly change it.
  16. Will only drink water.
  17. Can only swim with an aid of a float.
  18. Is happy with her own company.
  19. Doesn’t follow a crowd of people around.
  20. Is happier to visit a museum then some party.
  21. Hate green vegetable.
  22. Love root vegetables.
  23. Studied fashion journalism at uni.
  24. Have the freedom to write whatever she wants.
  25. Still watch 80s-90s cartoons/kids show.
  26. love swing dresses.
  27. Listen to rock/metal music.
  28. Wear size 2 (UK) shoes.
  29. Will fall or trip over her own feet.
  30. Have bad balance and fall over at every chance.
  31. Still get confused with her left and right.
  32. Get completely lost even following a map.
  33. Is the crazy bunny lady.
  34. Love the colour purple.
  35. Hate the colour green with a passion.
  36. Is really shy at first but then I won’t shut up.
  37. Is always complaining how cold she is.
  38. Have a high credit card bill.
  39. Will celebrities gossip.
  40. Will take the cheese of her pizza.
  41. Is forever laughing at her husband dumb joke.
  42. Enjoy the company of my husband.
  43. Will rather work on her own rather than a team.
  44. Want to travel the world
  45. Want to visit Japan and the Maldives.
  46. Didn’t knew what to do with her life until she was in her 30s.
  47. Cannot cook pancake to save her life.
  48. Wil be there for a friend when he or she has a problem.
  49. Will help anyone out when there is a problem or issue.
  50. Would love a house with an indoor swimming pool.

That the kind of girl and I am and I think I turned out alright. Ok sure I wish I was 2 dress size smaller and I wish I richer. But overall I’m alight. I will always be that girl who will lose her shoes and run along a train station in her socks.

Tell me in comments on what kind of girl (or guy) you are.

    Haha, if I saw you running around in your socks at the train station, I’d be like: That’s a girl who doesn’t care what other people think, and I love it! 🙂

    My own short list:
    1) Loves the location-independent lifestyle
    2) Wants to learn how to skydive
    3) Needs to learn how to stand up to bullies more
    4) Wants to read more books
    5) Finds life kind of depressing sometimes, but also really darn exciting too. It’s a conundrum.

    I am also a girl prone to random fits of laughter! I most often laugh when the joke is on me. You are clearly able to laugh st yourself and the image of you on the train made me smile. I am incredibly clumsy, so I give you credit for even hanging onto your shoes! I would be still laughing on the platform…shoeless.

    I love your list! I can really relate to laughing at the most random times, bursting out in laughter, and giggling at awkward times. That is so me. Maybe too much information, but I even burst out laughing in the middle of having a cervical biopsy…who does that? I felt incredibly uncomfortable because a male doctor was doing it, and for some reason, I started full-out laughing. I could not control myself.

    I like 18. (being happy with your own company) and 44. (Want to travel the world) and similarly I am the same for 45. (Want to visit Japan and the Maldives).

    Oh gosh, that would be quite a fix to lose your shoes that way! I am not sure how I’d handle it, if I were in your shoes. I may not know you, but based on the stuff you wrote, I am beginning to love this girl. I, on the other hand, is a girl who loves clouds and sunsets, calligraphy {even when I cannot create a decent one}, animals {even when I do not own one at the moment}, writing and my own company, the joy and quietude of being alone in my thoughts, late night me-time merely spent on contemplating and checking my IG feed, and finally, I love my little man, most of all!
