43 Things About Me

After reading the post "100 things about me" in Vintage blog and after i commented and she said why don't I write my list, I decided to do it.
I tried to reach 100 but it was too much! I even didn't expect myself to reach 43 things maybe because I don't know myself that well or I know myself but I don't think I have much things worthy of mentioning.

Here is what I managed to come up with:

1. My real name is not hopeless poet
2. I am between 20 and 30
3. I am 186 cm tall
4. I am over weight
5. I am Virgo
6. I am single
7. I live with my parents
8. I work
9. I graduated from university in 2002
10. I sleep less than 5 hours daily during work days
11. I don’t even sleep much during weekends
12. I like to stay up until noon during my vacations
13. I rarely listen to Arabic songs
14. I hate rap songs and rappers
15. I like country music and many people thinks that is weird!
16. I am a right handed
17. I hate math
18. My score in math final exam in high school second semester was 42 out of 100!
19. In the first semester I got almost 100 out of 100!
20. So what went wrong? I have no idea!
21. My overall average in high school was 90%
22. So I was not a bad student after all :P
23. I changed my major in university once
24. It was the best decision I made ever
25. My lowest grade in university was D+ in math in my first major
26. I even had to cheat to get that bad grade!
27. I started writing poems in 2001
28. Stopped for like 2 years and then returned in 2004
29. I only write in English
30. People say I am good in that
31. I like to watch sports on tv mostly football
32. I quit playing football after I started university
33. I was not that good anyway :P

35. I hate David Beckham
36. I hate Manchester United
37. I hate Alex Ferguson
38. I am a fan of Arsenal
39. I don’t support English clubs when they play in Europe even Arsenal

Vintage:

I knew that I made the right decision when I stopped worrying about failing and passing the courses and I started to worry about getting B and higher grades!
And after I had my job I thanked god I did change the major.
You know how did I reach that decision? I wasn’t even thinking of changing the major, but one day I was driving to uni with my friends who have already change their major one semester before me and they were talking to me about the new courses and the new plan for their major. I got excited and shouted that’s it! I am gonna change my major today! And I did :D

Bare Feet:

Oh yeah I have too much free time today ..lucky me! :P
But I didn’t think much of the list because I had much of it in my mind since last night and today I just wrote it!
I don’t think I would like to mention the other 57 things about me. I don’t think I have that much things about me anyway! You know how boring I am :P
That is number 44 for you: I am too boring :D

Flamingoliya said...

Farooha said...

Hopeless,
I admire your decision to transfer to another department or to change your major. tra wallah mu sahel abadan,..

Vintage 3almeeny keif yi9eer zay 7aggek.. hathak 5a6eeer.. kitha 7asait one juicy tidbit after another!

Flamingoliya:

I don't think I can take a shower at work! Beside I have much free time cos I manage my time properly without affecting my productivity :D
1. My name is not to be told in public :P
2. Do I act according to my age? :P
3. Thanx :D
4. :$
5. I am not gonna argue with you :P

9. Wrong guess!
11. I got used to it :(

Waiting for the rest. And I changed the broken mood :D

Vintage:

Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't! I hate it when the boss asks me to do things that are totally not related to my job! Things like going to bring his car from the airport or delivering something.
The special about right handed is that I am right handed :P
Left handed people are smart usually and they are talented so no wonder that you are a left handed person ;)

Hopeless Poet said...

Flamingoliya again:

Nice equation :p
So you are telling me you like country music too? :D
If so then you are my friend and I will not argue with you at all ;)

Farooha:

No it was somehow easy to transfer on my time and my GPA was not bad at all when I change the major. So the chairman there welcomed me ;)
And yalla write your list and let's get to know you better :D

Vintage said...

hopeless poet. always consider the potential of changing jobs. i think its well worth it while still young.

farooha, im glad u liked mine, i guess just try to be real and interesting, dont make each statement too long.. ok? :)

Hopeless Poet said...

I will change my job sooner or later :D
but not the company ..but who knows .. i may change the whole company too!

Flamingoliya said...

:)

Hopeless Poet said...

Flamingoliya :)
but why do i feel that it was a pale smile?

Jenny said...

Interesting that you listed 43 things. Here is a site for you:

http://www.43things.com

I am serious, take a look. Here you will find something positive and uplifting, I promise...
Of course you don't know me, um, my blog is titled state of mind.

Flamingoliya said...

maybe cuz i had lots of work, and maybe cuz i had lots of garga, that needed response. ghareeba, you usually take long! don't you have work today?

Hopeless Poet said...

Jenny from the block:

Thanx for the site! it looks interesting! i guess someone quickly made it after checking my list :p

Flamingoliya:

yeah i do have work! but i have to take some time off to check the net ;p
work can be very stressful! if there was no net here i would have killed someone at work i am sure!

Flamingoliya said...

i have the net,
and i have sometime to check work
:p

Hopeless Poet said...

It can be the same here too .. but not nowadays! i think the boss thinks we don't work much during the year so he is trying to create more activities to fill the work calendar!

Aquamarine said...

Walking on clouds! Waw..

Bare Feet said...

Sorry if my response offended you somehow..
but i was just astonished with the large list you had written.. later

Hopeless Poet said...

Aquamarine:

Yes I wanna walk on clouds and sleep on 1 of them, then slide on the rainbow in my way back home.

Bare Feet:

Not at all.
And what is astonishing about writing a list of 43 things about you in like 10 minutes or even less?
