I Must Confess: 30 Micro Confessions

micro confessions
Right, so Kirsty at My Home Truths has a prompt today to share micro-confessions, confessions not grand enough for their own blog post.

To me these are all somewhat boring, but hey, they might give you a bit of a laugh or perhaps make you see me in a completely different light (not worse I hope). When I first started writing the list I had about 14 and then all of these other ones decided to roll out, I never thought there’d be so many!

My micro confessions:

  1. I sleep in until 7am every morning. I am not a morning person although I’ve tried really hard to wake up early, I even wrote a post about how I am going to become an early riser. Ah…whoops, that definitely hasn’t happened yet.
  2. I can turn my ears inside out, it’s quite a party trick.
  3. I’m a nail biter and would never ever make a good hand model.
  4. About 10 years ago I applied for the Air Force as a Logistics Officer. I didn’t get in because I took too long on the aptitude test. I was only listening to the instructor who said ‘take your time, it’s better to be accurate’. Yeah, that didn’t work…probably for the best though.
  5. I don’t exercise but know I really need to start.
  6. I am not a very strong swimmer. Although I can swim, I really don’t like doing it.
  7. I read magazines from back to front on most occasions.
  8. I wish I could play the guitar and be in a band. I often imagine myself on stage rocking it out.
  9. I have two tattoos. You can see them here and here if you like.
  10. I have a bit of a thing for fast cars.
  11. I like to sing really loud and pretend that I’m actually good at it.
  12. I’m a little bit of a road rager and get easily pissed off at dickheads on the road. This has nothing to do with point 10.
  13. I came 2nd in a dance competition at a pub. I think I was about 18. Does Club-121 ring any bells for Brisbane peeps?
  14. I sometimes have one too many glasses of wine of an evening. Come on, I’m not the only one, right?
  15. I get easily frustrated.
  16. I am not overly organised, although I’d like to be.
  17. I don’t meal plan (yet)
  18. I often feed Elliott a dinner consisting of porridge and/or yoghurt, banana, toast…because often, that’s all he will eat.
  19. There are some weeks when I don’t vacuum , it’s just when I get the time to.
  20. I have three baskets full of washing waiting to be put away and they’ve been sitting in my bedroom like that for weeks.
  21. I don’t iron.
  22. We have takeaway on average once a week because I always have a night a week where I simply couldn’t be bothered and neither can Mr. G.
  23. I often have really crappy days where I just feel like crying and giving up, life isn’t always peachy.
  24. I don’t do a regular grocery shop on the same day every week, at the moment it’s been whenever I have time or when we need particular grocery items.
  25. I don’t have a line up of posts waiting to be published to my blog. Most of the time I rely on something popping into my mind and I write about it on the spot.
  26. I had a Virtual Assistant helping me with my blog (and other aspects of my business) up until the beginning of March, she set up my blog posts and scheduled my social media. My accountant told me I couldn’t afford her anymore so I had to let her go. Now I’m trying to do it all myself and it’s not easy….running a business, writing a blog, being a mum, being a wife, maintaining a house. That is why my Facebook page has become a little less interesting. But, I’m working on it!
  27. I believe in ghosts.
  28. I’ve seen a ghost.
  29. I also believe in aliens.
  30. I suffer from depression but have been successfully managing it. There are times when it’s tough, my husband shared his perspective here.

Nothing interesting really, nothing I’d really come out with in a general conversation, just a little bit more about me I guess, but from a bit of a ‘quirky’ (and some serious) perspective.

    Tell the ghost story!! Tell the ghost story!! I also like fast cars, and fast trucks in the Dakar….

    I think these are very interesting facts about you, don’t worry you are not alone with having baskets of laundry sitting around waiting to be put away either!
    Some facts about me include:
    – I used to do Tap Dancing and Ballet and even came first for my Tap Solo in a local competition.
    – I am a hoarder, I find it REALLY Hard to part with things. I am getting better though.
    – I have known the Multiltasking Mummy for over ten years now and you were also one of the very first friends I made when I moved to Brisbane 🙂

      Ooh, I’m going to have to get you to show me a little tap when I see you next. Don’t worry, I’m a hoarder too, it’s tough. Ah yes…don’t we have so many stories! xx

    Oh a fellow ghostie! I have also seen lots of ghosts. I also have prophetic dreams frequently. Get lots of vibes off people and things. Maybe I should become a psychic instead of a blogger!
    Fun post Eva!

    • March 27, 2015 / 5:57 pm

      Oh hello fellow ghostie! I think you may just have a bit of a talent there, Jody. So, are you getting any vibes through this message? Lol 🙂

    I love this list Eva – I feel I know you a whole lot more now (and I still like you!) I didn’t know you had a VA – I’d love one as I can never find or think up anything interesting for my social media posts. I’m sorry you had to let her go – hoping you can afford her again soon! Thanks for linking up – linking right back at you too x

    • March 27, 2015 / 5:59 pm

      Oh, I’m glad you still like me! 🙂 Yes, I DID have a VA and it was the best thing I ever did and really helped me get on my feet, perhaps one day when I’m raking in the dough I’ll employ her again. That’s what I promised her anyway.

    What a cool list… Tatts look awesome… I love that you don’t have a list of blogs waiting cause neither do I…

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:00 pm

      Thanks Natalie! Oh gosh, I think this week has been the only week in FOREVER that I’ve had blog posts ready to go. Whatever happened to me last week to allow that to happen, well it damn well better happen again!

  6. March 24, 2015 / 12:10 am

    Loved learning more about you!!!
    If you are a road rager I would love to see you navigate your way around Phnom Penh!! haha… the rules are, there are no rules! Crazy does not even begin to cover it!

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:01 pm

      Hmmm…let me just imagine that for a minute. No, that would not be a good idea. I fear someone would get hurt. 🙂

  7. March 24, 2015 / 12:43 am

    Love this list Eva! So many of your points resonated with me especially number 1. If you find out the secret to becoming a morning person, I would desperately love to know!

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:02 pm

      Tash, I am still desperately trying to figure this out and unfortunately the last few days I have been forced to be an early riser at 5am, not due to choice but due to a 3 year old waking way too early!

  8. March 24, 2015 / 10:16 am

    Oh I would love to be organised too, but that isn’t happening anytime soon. I grocery shop when stuff is needed or I want to get out of the house. I also don’t have a line of posts ready to go, I think on the run. When I am working both my jobs clean laundry is anywhere but away, I consider it amazing that I actually get it washed let alone the rest of the housework done. Thanks for sharing a bit about you.

  9. March 24, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    Love this list, what a great idea for a post! And very interesting to, good to know you on a slightly deeper level. Thanks for your honesty about the crap days you get sometimes, I can relate to that. Can also relate to the red wine thing…..

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:04 pm

      Isn’t it a great idea? That’s thanks to Kirsty at My Home Truths. She has a link up each monday called ‘I Must Confess’ and this was the prompt. I love it! Oh yes, the red wine. I will admit that I have a glass of it right beside me as I type this…it’s Friday night, a perfect excuse!

  10. March 25, 2015 / 7:15 pm

    Miss 18 would love your mandala tattoo, I think she is planning to get one in the same place in the not too distant future …

    I wrote about ghosts this week and I’m still not 100% either way about believing in them. It’s funny too how we have different interpretations of sleep ins. 7am isn’t a sleep in for me, but since having Mr 5 anything after 8am is considered a sleep in.
