32 Random Facts About Me


We all have a habit of thinking that we know ourselves better than anybody else could. But I realized it’s essentially not completely true. We tend to surprise ourselves when we hear someone say that ‘I know you better than you think’. Which is probably in the middle of an argument and you think you are on the right. Know thyself, we’re told by parents, elders even the world. So to think that others know you more than yourself is simply something you find unacceptable. So I thought about this and decided I think I need to compile a list of random facts that I feel I know of myself that nobody else would know, or perhaps they already know. Still it’s fun discovering thyself. So here lies 32 random facts about me. I chose 32 with a reason not just some random number, reason? I shall not divulge. Anyway so random facts about me thrown under this list. Have you ever written such a list? For those who may know me do you agree, know everything or some of the facts; do you agree or disagree. Any random facts you want to add? Let’s have fun knowing me. Here goes…
