Random Fact About Me

So I couldn’t think of a random fact about myself because nothing I do is random to me.

Something though, whenever I say it, gets a surprised reaction from people about ninety percent of the time:

I have never smoked pot.

That’s right, I haven’t. I know it’s the thing that everyone does or has done at some point in their life but I have never done it.

I would like to know what all the fuss is about but I just don’t know when it will ever happen for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been given multiple opportunities, they just never happened for some reason or another. I feel like the Universe is trying to tell me, “you don’t need to do it.” That may be true but I still want to try it.

I’ve also never been full on drunk before but that’s because I suffer from what is affectionately called the “Asian Blush.” I am of Filipino descent and because of this my body does not produce the enzyme needed to break alcohol down into sugar so my body doesn’t know how to process it. I break out in a rash, my eyes get blood shot, I get purple spot on my forehead, my blood pressure drops, I get really sleepy, my chest starts to hurt, it’s hard to breathe. All from just half a glass of wine. I do get very tipsy off that half glass. Alcohol tends to affect me much quicker than others. Drinking one is like drinking four for me.

I’ve never tried any other types of drugs either. The rest are too hardcore for me. I’ve had pain killers for c-sections, surgeries, wisdom teeth removal, and the like but they always make me dizzy or nauseous so I only take it if I really need to.

So there you have it! I’m a sober biotch. I’m still super fun though. 😉

Tell me a random fact about you!

  1. Honestly, you’re not missing out on much. I’ve tried it once or twice with friends who absolutely love it, but I don’t get it… Maybe I’m doing it wrong, if there even is a wrong way to do it…? 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I want to keep my random fact in the same realm of something I’ve never tried or done, so one thing I have never done is dye my hair. I feel like that’s a right of passage for high school aged girls that you just keep committing too as you get older, but I’ve never done it. I can’t pull the trigger on changing my hair color because what if I miss my natural color? What if the new color looks horrible? What if it fries my hair completely? It gives me anxiety just thinking about it, so I probably never will haha!

  2. All this time I had no idea you were Asian. Not that I’m a heavy drinker, but it must be quite annoying to have SUCH a reaction to just a bit of alcohol.
    Opiod pain killers have the same effect on me. More pain than gain.
