I have been tagged here and there on facebook and livejournal so here are my "25 random facts":

1. When I was in high school I was part of a small student exchange to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. I stayed with a Zulu family there and spent time at a school in one of the townships (sortof ghetto). It was definately one of the most intense experiences in my life. It's also where "Sipho" is from. I also did a similiar exchange the year before to Utrecht, in the Netherlands.

2. I've been single for almost 4 years now. Or 5? Shit I don't even remember. It's not something that bothers me much though.

3. When I was a baby I was dropped on my head. Lol...

4. I'm always disappointed if I'm into a guy and I find out he is religious. OK the way I said it it sounds like it happens a lot, but it doesn't. It just seems so far from logical thinking to me, when people who are otherwise so sensible actually believe in things like Jesus walking on water. I don't get up in my friends faces about their personal beliefs though. In the end it's none of my business.

5. When I was a kid I had this huge fish tank. In the end I gave up on it though as it was overtaken by algae and tiny little snails. And changing the water was such a pain in the ass!

6. When I was an even younger kid I had really blonde hair. Where I come from it's quite common for kids to start out light haired and then get darker as they get older. Photo: click here

7. I live in a tower with my friend Sam. Our friend Laurent lives in a tower just close to us.

8. I'm a terrible terrible swimmer. I can only do the breast strokes and I have to pinch my nose when my head is under water lol. I actually can't remember the last time I went swimming.

9. I love tacos ^_^

Wow I'm already having a hard time coming up with more...

10. I love being tan, but I'm really impatient with tanning.

11. A few years ago when I was in California, I was staying with some friends in West Hollywood when my friends sister was kidnapped by a guy who escaped from a mental hospital. It was an interesting few days :P

12. My full name is Markus Berg Bollingmo. The "Berg" is my mother's maiden name. In Norway the tradition is that the wide and then later the kids take her maiden name as a sort of "second" last name like that.

15. I don't really like to take baths, but I do it anyway to shave my butt and boy bits. Or taking really hot ones when my body feels all tense. I've never been one to take baths just for the comfort though. So boring :P

16. I'm so weak for Asian boys *melt*

17. I carry a backback or messenger bag pretty much everywhere I go. I feel naked without it, and I need all the random stuff here and there!

18. In a crowded place I am usually shy and reserved, unless the people are people I know well. I'm such a nervous wreck whenever I'm in a night club (which is pretty much never).

19. I was fluent in Swedish after one month of living there but I still can't fucking speak French!

20. I like chocolate and I like nuts but I'm not really into chocolates that has nuts in them.

Hmmmm what else...

21. I'm almost always wearing hats. Some people say they prefer me without, but I really can't stand my hair. And I like my hats! ^_^

22. I can't stand "toilet humor" :P

23. I think guys with pierced ears are sexy. OK I wrote about that another time, but I'm running out of "facts"!

24. I studied political science for two years at the university back in Trondheim. I find it very interesting, but I was fed up with all the academic stuff so I quit and moved to Stockholm where I worked in a school kitchen for a year and a half.

25. I am terrible at cooking. So boring >.<

PHEW! Well I tried to make it interesting, I don't know if I succeeded. Feel free to leave comments because that took me ages to write lol

And I tag...shit, I don't know....Joseph! And anyone else who feels like it I suppose :)

This was really interesting. Trip to Africa sounds fascinating. I agree with just about everything you said. Belief is difficult to explain to a person who doesn't feel it, but surely you've experienced something you'd consider a miracle or perhaps...you've yet to, you are still young.

I'm good at cooking, what's your favorite sort of thing to eat? And if it's not too personal, what do you prefer to shave with?
10th-Feb-2009 03:38 pm (UTC)
Well no I haven't experienced those. Amazing coincidences, sure, but not "miracles" :P

What do you mean? I shave with a razor. Is there another way?
10th-Feb-2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
Aww I read everything!
I guess it's easier for you to learn Swedish since you're from Norway, than for you to learn French... right? I studied French for like 6 years and I still can't speak it very well :/
10th-Feb-2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
Yes absolutely, but I should have learned French by now :P

Your 25 facts were not boring. And I too was born with blond hair that went dark but I think that's typical for a Finn.
10th-Feb-2009 04:02 pm (UTC)
Yes :)

4. well..if a boy/girl whom I really really like turns out to be religious...that's practically the death sentence for the possibility of being in a relationship with that someone. I'm okay with people believing in an allmighty power...which can be god, allah or whatever. But being religious means that whole church-praying-bible kind of stuff to me. I think it's annoying and totally unnecessary. I mean...why living after stupid rules that come from a book?...or praying every day? It's just not reasonable to me...

And I can totally relate to 10, 23 and 25 ^-^

i wouldn't say death sentence, but yes i would be disappointed :P

4: I grew up in a religious household when I was very young, but mt entire family pretty much dropped all forms of organized religion some twelve years ago, and after lightly studying philosophy at university I find it very illogical. I agree completely on the boys thing :/

16: This used to apply to me to an extreem haha. My friends used to say I had "yellow fever". My first real boyfriend was asian. photo.

18: I don't often go to clubs at all. In fact its probably going on over a year since the last time I even set foot in one. hmm

23: I agree! Mine are pierced as well :] I also like tattoos, but some people get the most awful tattoos some times... such a turn off.
