The Curious

Hat again, but this time it’s myself (just a bit younger)… One of my favourite bloggers, the adorable Ferferi who blogs from her life as a Swedish student in Paris was so kind to tag me with a little challenge: Tell 6 positive things about yourself and post a picture of yourself that you like.

Mmmh, I don’t know about you, but finding one’s own positive traits isn’t easy. So in the end I did some 'reverse thinking'…

1. I'm crap at all things science.

2. I'm a bit OCD, which, if I put a positive spin on it, means I'm a well organised person (you do need to be when you are a control freak).

3. I get easily bored mentally, so my mind constantly produces images, ideas, sentences – which leads to taking and producing pictures, designing and making clothes, inventing new dishes... So yes, I venture to say I'm a creative person.

4. I like to think of myself as a loyal friend, and I’m a big family person – deeply loving my parents, my 3 siblings, their partners and children and very much my own daughter and my ever patient, (to me) best of all men, man.

5. I've always devoured books (so much so that I regularly ran into trees as a child because I was reading while walking), and am still a big reader. (Intellectual pursuits, that must be good, no?)

6. Oh dear, one more… I'm disciplined, YES! I exercise regularly and I don't over-eat (at least not very often), I even hardly ever drink alcohol anymore… (oh dear, that sounds so booooring).

I'm passing the challenge on to:

Thank you, Chantelle! Blogging and reading - the great escapes, aren't they? I'm sure you are a really well organised person at heart!

Leia said...

Sabine, these pictures of you are SO LOVELY! And I really enjoyed reading this tag and getting to know a bit more about you. It seems like we have quite a lot in common :)

Oh yay I loved this post Sabine! First, because you really explained everything with sentences (is that due to point one) and second because you made it such a fun reading. Also, thanks for the last pictures, it really felt Swedish with the red house in the background. You seem to have a very nice family!!! And oh yeahl almost forgot: Thank you for your kind words here!

Sniff said...

Cool post! Really enjoyable reading. I'm with you on the OCD. So much I get hysterical if I don't know where every little thing is at any time. The friends I've just been holidaying with think I'm mad, constantly checking my bag and my suitcase to see that everything really is there.

This picture of you is sooo adorable. It's 3:30am in the US so I have to run off and get a few hours or so of sleep, but I will be back to read your post in entirety.

Wanted to say hi b/c I'm not sure I've visited before and saw your comment.

Oh, weren't you an adorable child? I love that last picture so much.
Great to learn more about you. Not over-eating or hardly drinking, I don't think you could ever be described as boring.

That second photo is fabulous! How perfect.
And Sabine, let me point out that I could name 6 more positive things about you without any disclaimers. Easily.

Dusk said...

Control freak? I think not! What's wrong with wanting things a certain way? You're a woman who cuts to the chase, know what she likes or doesn't and I love that about you!
...and I like what Dancing Branflake said. So true.

I love the pics! Look at your big beautiful eyes! I can imagine you walking in to a tree, lost in the leaves of a book...:)
..the 2nd pic...such a gorgeous memory...drama, excitement, taste sensations, warmth... heaven indeed!

Thank you for the tag hon, I will get to it asap

Tanvi said...

Love the pictures. It was great to know more about you ... and I like that you exercise and do not over eat [since health and fitness is important to me] :o) I too have the same OCD as you!

You are a real sweet person and always positive! That's what I think ... !

Awesome!! I can't wait to try this. Thanks for the tag...let's see what I come up with :) I'm a tad OCD too, or I should say a very Type A personality.
