At the end of January my Q&A book asked me the question
What makes you "you"?
I only had 4 lines to answer that question so I kept it very simple, but it made me think about it again and again. In my opinion it isn't just one thing, I'd say it is the combination of many many things. I don't think I can nail what makes me "me" on just one attribution.
In primary school those friendship book you had your friends fill out (or is that a german thing?) there sometimes was the question how you can be recognised and I would always put down "my long hair", because it was (and still is) extremely long, nearly touched my bum and no one else in my class had long hair like that. And yes tbh, I would define at least my looks and maybe to some degree just me as a person by my hair. How silly...
I would still say, that my long hair is a feature that defines me, but not the only one. I would not be a completely different person with shorter hair.
I tend to have a very strong and persistent opinion on films and series I don't want to watch any time in the future and the reasons behind it. The list actually isn't that short and includes The Hunger Games (don't judge, I loved the books!), the new smurf films and the Jungle Book. Trust me there are more.
I am also very fussy when it comes to food. I always feel awful when it comes to cooking with someone or having people cook for me. Because on top of a fructose and lactose intolerance I don't like everything. I am getting better, especially with trying new things, but there are still foods I refuse to retry yet.
I hate being late, normally I get wherever 5 minutes early, that's just who I am. When meeting up for a friends birthday lunch I was actually the first there besides her, her bf and her sister and she said she knew I would be on time because I always am. And tbh, I took that as a lovely compliment because there are much worse attributes to have.
I drive cars like I drive my bike. I like to have my arms and legs in a 90° angle and most people can not get into cars when I have been driving because I just sit pretty much right behind the wheel.
Colourful socks. Because life is too short for plain socks.
I can get quite hooked and obsessed with books, films and series.
And I think I will stop here, becauseI feel like this gives you a nice bit of information about the Jenny behind Jenny Side Up but you (hopefully) won't be bored.
I would love to read about some of your quirks or if you share any of mine!
