Dance 4 Life
I remember doing this a while ago, but the post has long been lost in my archives. So I'm sitting here with a nice cup of noodle soup, ready to plough through this again. These, my beloved readers, are 100 things about me - enjoy.
  1. I'm a little annoyed that I can't find my original list.
  2. I've just been baking and there is a lovely smell of vanilla around the house.

  9. No really - I don't think I would trade it in for anything.
  10. Though at one point in my youth I wished I was straight like my friends.
  11. I cried a lot over being different from other boys.
  12. In time, I would learn to embrace my sexuality and celebrate being different.
  13. I could knit a scarf at age 9.
  14. This worried my mum quite a bit.
  15. I've learnt that even a really good friendship can have a sour moment.

  17. I owe a lot to the people who've brought me back to sanity.
  18. At one point I tried to take my life.
  19. Apparently, God had other plans for me.
  20. I look back on that event and realize how stupid and cowardly it was.
  21. I am a Facebook junkie.
  22. I'm also a gaming nutter and spend too much time on my consoles.
  23. After 9 years I finally deleted my gaydar profile.
  24. And I'm having withdrawal symptoms.
  25. I'm an average cook but to this day I can't make proper apple pie.
  26. I'm as camp as they come and a true bitch at heart.
  27. But I'm a terrific 'people person'.
  28. Do you doubt that, bitch?
  29. I believe in the power of prayer.
  30. I've been praying for a husband for about 6 years.
  31. I love chocolate.
  32. I was often bullied at college because of my sexuality.

  45. I'm Indian, gay, and Catholic - could life get any more complicated?
  46. According to my mum, I have a wedding fund in the bank.
  47. I wonder if she would let me have the money even if I wasn't getting married.
  48. She would probably give it to Mother Teresa than to her gay son.
  49. I have met some truly amazing men in my life.

  57. Growing up I never could decide what I wanted to do as a career.
  58. To date, I have dabbled in interior design, art, marketing, IT, and even massage.

Like your honest thoughts (and they way you express them). I confess being a bit homophobic whilst growing up in the UAE - however exposure to a lesbian couple here in NYC, helped realize, they are people too, with feelings, integrity and the need to be loved have a family and all, like anyone else. Trying and understanding them helps remove fears and prejudices, well to an extent.
