Five Things You Might Not Know About Me  
Or maybe you do. I've done this before and I'll probably just give the same answers. Plus, I tend to repeat myself so...

1. I've made a career out of writing essays. Not exactly, but I won an essay contest when I was in 1st grade where I read the essay on the radio and was able to lead the parade at the circus that came to town. I won again in 3rd grade, but no circus this time *sad* I won another essay either in 8th grade or 9th grade - can't remember - where I was invited to Washington D.C., but I opted out because it scared me. I also won a Martin Luther King Jr. essay in 10th grade where I had to read in front of an entire congregation. I was following a sermon by their reverend. No pressure. It went well and I was interviewed later. I think maybe I am persuasive with words, but I don't see it.

2. I was assessed to be gifted at an early age. Don't remember how it all started, but the school officials took me out of my normal class and stuck me in some class for gifted creative students. I barely remember the class - I was in Grade 1 - but I can recall one class. They stuck a bunch of clay in front of me and wanted me to sculpt. (Pretty good that I didn't freak considering my fear of clay - thankyouverymuch Gumby and the Clay Monster.) I remember all the other kids went nuts and started creating right away. I stared at the clay for a long time. I wanted to make some kind of princess or fantasy creature, but I knew it never would be perfect so I froze. I think maybe the school people made a mistake ;) Anywho, they also wanted me to skip a grade but my parents said no. I'm thankful they did.

3. I talk to dead people. Maybe. Either I have an overactive imagination, am crazy, or just something I can't explain, but I've had several deceased people tell me things in dreams. The biggest example is that for several years my grandmother would come to me in dreams and tell me events that would happen in the future. Recurring dreams. And then the events would happen. That was different. I've had other people tell me things - boxes hidden here, go tell this or that, but I never did because I figured I just being silly again. Who knows. It hasn't happened in a while, though. I also sometimes can hear snatches of conversations before they happen and I've been told by a psychic once that I am clairaudiant or something like that, but I don't believe it.

4. I've seen UFO's. If I couldn't get weirder. I have seen lights in the sky. They chased each other - they would go straight up, down, zip backwards and front again. To this day, I still have no clue what they were. Maybe something military or something else natural over the water. No clue. But they were unidentified and flying and objects, so they fit the bill even if little grays weren't piloting them ;)

5. I tend to use self-depreciating humor to get a laugh. It's my schtick. Can you tell?

Interesting, thanks for telling *writing*

No.4, I`ve seen the same. But this was years ago. And I, also, have no idea what it was I saw back then.

There are so many explanations we haven't even thought of, I'm sure.

It's just more fun to pretend that the truth is out there ;)

That's pretty awesome - the essay thing. I'm not a huge fan of writing essays, but creative writing? Hells yeah! :D

O_o @ the hearing dead people thing... I mean, I believe a lot of things, so I can believe that there are people who are more sensitive to different "realms"... ♥

LOL And you know what? I am not huge of taking creative writing in school. I tend to feel trapped. The teacher tells you that you have to write this or that and I freeze. I always did well, but I feel like it straggles my creatibity a bit.

Except for one teacher who said I reminded him of Poe.

The dead people thing? Still can't explain that one LOL

(And I love your icon.)

That's cool. Thanks for sharing.

#3 kinda hits close to home for me. I've had similar experiences. I've had several dreams come true months after I had them. Freaked me out.

I also don't tell many people about this, cuz it's kinda weird, but I'm a little empathic. I can feel other people's emotions, especially if they are really strong. I was a teacher for a few years, and I was a complete mess. Had to go on medication it was so bad.

Yeah, it's kind of scary. I used to think I was nuts for a long time. Now I just go with it.

I also consider myself empathic, or at least overly sensitive. (The terminology that I use.) I used to feel other people's emotions so strongly that I didn't know what to do with myself. Especially other people's sadness or despair. Over time, I've managed to block most of that out, but it still gets me from time to time.

Since I stopped teaching, I'm off the medication and I feel so much better. Yeah, the sadness and despair was what I would pick up on too.

Interesting. My sister in law says she's seen her relatives come to her in dreams. They haven't told her the future, but it's been comforting to her. I don't believe in "ghosts" per se, but a lot of people have had those kind of experiences, so who am I to say that's not real.

I haven't seen UFOs, but I used to see these little colored dots when I was a kid. I thought they were aliens or demons. They'd fly under my blanket and then fly away. Either I had a really active imagination (which I did) or there are tiny multi-colored aliens out there. o.O

There is a lot of comfort in seeing someone who has passed in your dreams. The skeptical side of me just thinks it's a way that we cope and make sense of the world, but I'd like to think maybe there is something more. And I still can't explain the future predictions.

I don't believe that aliens visit the Earth, but those funny lights can be something else on a clear dark night ;)
Banana Cave: Death Note: L is for Lollipopbanana_cave on June 15th, 2009 04:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think if aliens exist there isn't much here for them, unless they want to eat us like in the Twilight Zone. I have a very active imagination, I guess.

The future prediction thing is weird. There's a lot of weird things that happen. Usually I'm a skeptic about haunted houses and stuff, but when dreams are involved, you can't "disprove" it. My sister in law has told everyone that if we die we have to see her in a dream, and not when she's awake because that would scare her too much, haha.

Interesting! Some of this I did know - but some I didn't - thanks honey!

*hugs you tight*

Wow! Those five things are awesome!

I skipped Kindergarten.

I've dreamed things that have happened in the future but they were really random things of no consequence.

Oh awesome! I don't think I knew any of those... except that you were a great writer from some of your other post. Thanks for sharing. *grin*

LOL-you are awesomely strange; better than the rest of the 'normal' folks who are obviously in denial lol, j/k.
Um, why are you glad you didn't skip a grade?

Self-depreciating humor, I think, can only be done by someone who's comfortable in their skin. If you can laugh at yourself, then I commend you:D
settykins108 on June 15th, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
Wow, this is really cool & interesting. I like writing some essays. Depends on the topic. 3 & 4 are awesome. I'm totally into paranormal stuff. :]
