25 Things You May Not Know About Me

  1. I love formatting Excel files.
  2. Last year I started putting honey in my coffee, instead of sugar. (Yes. And before that I used to make the same face you just made!)
  3. I waited until I was 34 to have my ears pierced.
  4. In 2011, 30 years after my brother invented the “Humheumel”, I gave it a face. Now our whole family knows what it looks like: Meet the Humheumel
  5. I like baking a lot more than I like cooking.
  6. I eat Nutella with a spoon.

  9. My judgment on really good espresso is approved by Italians.
  10. I used to be the biggest Billy Idol fan.
  11. A day without learning is like a day without sunshine.” In the two months before I made this list I attended a happiness seminar, a seminar on relationships, an online marketing course and three business webinars. I learned how to build websites and facebook pages, how to interview people via skype and how to edit the videos afterwards.
  12. I sometimes burst out, “I LOVE YOU!” to my clients. Because I really do.
  13. African drums mesmerize me.
  14. I grew up in communism and didn’t believe in anything but myself until I was 34.

  16. I studied Russian for eight years of my life and have forgotten everything.
  17. I love Liz Lemon.
  18. The midlife crisis phenomenon fascinates me.
  19. I loved reading the Twighlight books (yes I did), but didn’t like the movies. I have never opened a Harry Potter book but do enjoy the movies. I know the lines of the movie Awakenings by heart.
  20. I think Leonard Cohen has the most beautiful voice on the planet. Closely followed by Alan Rickman, of course.
  21. If I could bring only one book to a desert island, it would be the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.
  22. For the past 10 years I’ve lived by the sea – my life long dream. I am grateful for that every single day!
  23. The only DVDs I own are the “Little House on the Prairie” series.
  24. My favourite number as a child was “hundredthousandmillionandeight”. Actually, it still is.

  26. One day I’ll do a past life regression, to figure out why that is.
  27. I like making lists. :)
  28. I’m a recovering perfectionist. Announcing “25 things” in the title and then listing 28 would have really bothered me in the past. Not anymore.
