When Elle of Fast Food and Fashion tagged me in the Seven Confessions game, I immediately started humming Confessions Part II by Usher. Oh how we worshiped Usher back in the day before he went all auto-tune. Here's the scoop on my seven:

1. I'm actually not as panda-obsessed as my blog title may lead people to believe. I think my major craze phase was during the first year of college and consequently my friends all bought me pandas whenever they traveled. I have a huge collection of 30+ stuffed animal pandas ranging from some no taller than 2 inches to the Big Blue Panda that had an accident with too much Tide laundry detergent (hence the name), who is about 4 feet long. Now I've tried to gravitate more towards mature and womanlike things but I'm still a big kid at heart.

2. I've always wanted to be the demure, quiet type of shy girl that people don't notice. Reality? I talk at 90 mph and blab the pinnas off most people and sometimes might still not get the point across. If high school taught me anything, it's to put on a brave, confident face and talk like you know what you're doing that now I have become truly extroverted and a big social butterfly. I have my awkward moments in public though. Strange paradox.

3. Huge fan of puns. I'm severely proud of anything witty or pure cheesy that flies out of my mouth (yes, I'm definitely a dork). All my friends are very good at rolling their eyes and giving wry laughs by now xD

4. Though I'm a neuroscience major, my creative heart lies in the humanities. Psychology, anthropology, languages, music, anything involving people people people and emotions I love much more than chugging numbers or deriving equations. I think if I didn't want to become a doctor, I would be off somewhere in the world doing fieldwork, studying unique tribes and peoples and preserving their culture in my writings.

5. Biggest tomboy ever. I used to swordfight in high school. Some of my friends made fun and called me a "larper" but I took deep pride in making a fearsome war-cry and charging the bejeebies out of any guy. I never was good at doing girly things with girly girls. The thought of shrieking and giggling through a day of spas and shopping together or trying to plan a wedding gives me a headache. I'd rather mud wrestle. My mom thinks I'm a hopeless case because I never care about my hair or keep long nails.

6. I am so easily distracted. I don't believe in all that ADHD stuff but every since I was little, I would always be off in my little world. I sometimes even get distracted from my distractions, which leads to my procrastination problems and nocturnal habits (I am always awake from 5 PM - 8 AM during summers, it's hopeless).

7. I have a deep fear of going under the knife. That's why thinking about lasik makes me queasy and I took lots of anti-anxiety medicine just for taking out my wisdom teeth. It's odd that someday I want to become a surgeon and I'm fearful of my own profession. Go figure. Spiders, snakes, heights, whatever, but surgery and clowns are not my cup of tea.

P.S. Just started Autumn's Concerto last night and already so addicted. Some convincing acting going on that makes me bear Vanness's questionable looks hahaha. [Photo cred: Drama Wiki]
Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

LOL, autumn's concerto is my favorite asian drama in recent memory (i don't watch that many though). the entire cast is beautiful, imo (but i agree with you about vanness. you and i are actually a lot alike, especially when it comes to being tomboy like. and your first fact surprised me, but i guess we all go through phases and eventually snap out of it. :)

I will do this when I get home from class haha :)

Omg I love autumn's concerto, it's sooo soo good :). I watched it twice lol

PetiteXXS November 22, 2010 at 9:42 PM   said...

You already know how I feel about Vanness too... I was highly doubtful that he could carry off the lead role, but I concede that he wasn't too bad in this drama. Btw if you haven't watched Fated To Love You, you should! I really liked that one too.

2,3,6, and 7 I can relate to way too much...In math, I never psy attention. I just draw out random stories and stuff...It's pretty lame, now that I thinhk about it, but I'm getting a high A in it, so it's ok in my mind. In English, we were actually encouraged to make puns while reading Romeo&Juliet. It was horrible, we made all these terrible jokes...

Great post ;D

Stylepint November 23, 2010 at 11:34 PM   said...

It's great learning more about you. I feel like I'm the same way...a tomboy at heart but I'm getting better at hiding it...but maybe not because most of my friends are guys. I have a few close girl friends but we don't shop or go the spa together. LOL.

I have my phases of being shy or extroverted and back to shy again. But I think I've hit some middle ground so it's appropriate for whatever situation. =)

Angie, thanks for tagging me!!!!!!! I HAVE to do this :D I'm piling the things up to see what I can write.

I once had an obsession with pandas too, especially Tarepanda. It was a weird infatuation of a bug eyed panda that just made me weak! LOL

I think it's the idea of surgery that makes you queasy. Since you talk 90 mph, you probably think 90 mph too! You are envisioning all that can go wrong. Right? haha I am like that too. I walk to work everyday and I'm already plotting my next move, "What if I get mugged? Should I try to bolt or should I take out my box cuter?" LOL I dont really have a box cutter but I've been meaning to buy one :p

I really liked that drama. It is very sad, but it is pretty good =] I like the actress!

awwwwwwwww, this is such a cute post!
Felt that I learn more about you ^^
I totally understand how you are scared of getting surgery, when that's your profession! I'm doing Marine Science, and I'm dead scared of Big Monster size fish.... @_@

Oh Angie, you are so adorable! I totally LOL when I read about your sword fighting days. You sound like a kick ass girl. ;-)
Best wishes in your endeavors on becoming a doctor! Wow, a surgeon sounds so hardcore!

Mary December 1, 2010 at 9:53 PM   said...
