Day Four: Ten Interesting Facts about Yourself

Coming up with the material for today’s post was tough! To complete it I decided to go with a mix of facts that I find interesting about myself and what others have told me intrigued them. My contributions will have a ‘DD’ at the end; the input from others will be noted with ‘O’. Here is the list:

 

  • I am only 4’11, unusually short for an American woman (hence the blog name Diminutive Diva)!DDShort Girls
  • I’ve left two Abrahamic faiths and have not adhered to any religion since. This fact is the one that has provoked the most inquiry and debate! OChurchSynagogueMosque
  • The term ‘Arachnophobia’ isn’t just the title of a movie featuring John Goodman; it’s a part of my life! I have unrelenting enmity towards these atrocious beasts! I am aware that my fear of them is irrational, as they do not pose any real threat to me (my Mom used to rib me about this by asking if spiders carried guns). They just look so creepy and nefarious to me! DDSpiders
  • I’ve never sustained an injury- a sprain, broken bone or anything of that nature. O
  • I share my first and last name with a younger sibling (that’s a long story which I am not getting into today!) DD
  • I tend to be open-minded and seek diverse experiences. O
  • I spent three months living in Tanzania and enjoyed my time there so much that I did not want to return to the States. DDDar
  • There is no limit to what I am willing to do to ensure my child’s happiness and success in life. OMama
  • I am a voracious reader! Even now I still count the moment I learned to read in the 1st grade as one of the best days of my life! DDReading
  • I’m a highly resilient woman. No matter what tribulations I encounter in life, I always pick myself up and march on. Resilient

A native Seattleite and recent East Coast transplant, I have been interested in politics, religion, and race from the day I saw “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” on the bookshelf belonging to my BFF’s mom back in 1991. While my zealotry has thankfully diminished with maturity, I remain the deep thinking, passionate, and humble woman I have always been. I reside in the suburbs of NYC with my husband, daughter, and our two feisty but deeply loved cats.
