The other day I was talking about a skill I had and the person I was talking to had no idea I had such skill (not skill in general but that particular skill). I guess I don’t really think about how I don’t share such tidbits about myself very often. So this forevermore will be my reference! I have decide to give you a general reference on what “Brandy” is all about (lucky you!).
First off I am a true introvert. This isn’t to say that I’m shy but I have many, actually most conversations in my head and have no issues not talking to people. Weird silences really don’t faze me because most likely I’m having a most interesting conversation in my head anyway. I think a big part of this awesome introvert personality trait comes from the following events in my life; I was sexually abused from the age of around 4 yrs. old to 12 yrs. old, I was sexually assaulted at age 16, raped at 19 and sexually assaulted again at 22. Now these are events that happened in my life, they do not make up who I am but have took a part in sculpting how I view the world. Read the book (still being worked on) if you want the details on all that mess.
Now that we got the gory details out of the way.. time for some fun facts! I am a pretty good baker. I don’t love to bake enough that I want to make a career out of it, plus I would be on My 600 LB Life if I was a baker. I played the flute from 5th grade through Jr. High and was a first chair but dropped that when I went in to high school. I also have knowledge of playing the piano but honestly have never learned a full song.. I’m an intro girl. I sing and was part of honor choir back in the school days but my introvert nature has held me back from nurturing that skill. I love music but generally not for the lyrics. I like the little nuances in different songs like a trumpet solo, clarinet in the background, little things like that. I also sew, knit, crochet and anything else country but just because I have the knowhow doesn’t mean I spend much time doing it.
Time for the good part! My beliefs and political stances… actually I hate politics because both sides are full of crap and lie through their teeth to get what they want which has nothing to do with the general population. I stay away from politics and religion. But I was raised under the notion that ladies don’t cuss and that cussing makes you sound ignorant. I still abide by that rule to date. I am not a person that wastes time talking to you if I don’t like you. I can’t do the whole fake nice routine. Never could and never plan to learn to. Life is WAY too short to waste my time learning about somebody I really have no interest retaining information on. I also don’t care what your social status is, I base my opinion of you on the way you treat other people. Nobody is above anybody else despite the amount of money you have or don’t have unless you treat other people poorly. We are all human despite where we are in life and should be treated as such unless you are a horrible person.
Why I’m weird.. I HATE sharing my food. I don’t know where that comes from but it’s been that way for my whole life and probably not going to change. I’m not a good person to stay in contact with people. I’m a lone wolf and don’t need people around me to feel content so please don’t be offended if I don’t contact you often. I mean even one of my most favorite people (Gemma M) in the world is subject to this treatment by me, despite the fact that adore and miss her tons! I revert back to a child when it comes to animals and Disneyland (not my best trait). I have zealous love for Ron Howard! Not sexual in any way. I just find him most interesting! I see Abe Lincoln almost every day in some shape or form (this does not include on any money). For example, we were recently in Hawaii, we were walking down Main street in Lahaina, and randomly decided on a restaurant. Just 5 minutes after we set down we heard the phrase “Have you seen Lincoln”. The boyfriends’ eyes got wide as he turned around to see that a man was asking somebody at the table behind us if they had seen the movie! Freaky right? I have literally hundreds of these incidents that occur with plenty of witnesses. Don’t know why it happens but I just go with it.
So that’s me… I mean I’m a lot more complicated, nerdy, weird and mysterious than all that (what did Shrek say.. I have layers like an onion!) but you get the general jest.. as I’ve heard more than a few times.. I’m unique!
