The Four Things Tag

Things work out in weird ways…I was just wondering what I should write about (and I’m not in the mood for a movie or music post) when along comes Eva of Coffee, Classics and Craziness with a delightful tag…

She kind of (any excuse to join in) tagged me in that she tagged anyone who enjoys re-watching movies. Yes…RE-watching. And no…don’t come with that line “oh…but how can you possibly watch a movie more than once”….hmm…but then you are mostly movie bloggers reading this so I think that comment is redundant…oh whatever…here are my fours…

Four Jobs I’ve Had

  1. General office assistant at the Consulate General while a student;
  2. Part-time book seller while a student;
  3. Piano teacher (yes…how did you guess…while a student);
  4. Business Intelligence (Analytics) and Data Warehouse Consultant (not as a student).

Four Things I Don’t Eat

This one is hard because I pretty much eat everything.

1. Uhm….hmmm…actually….I don’t know…I’ll come back to this one…sometime…

Ok…I’m back…brain…that I won’t eat. And fruit in meals…like, in main meals – dinner. So, for example pineapple in Riz Casimir or raisins in pumpkin. That’s about it. And primary school camp meals.

Four Places I’ve Lived

  1. Lambton, South Africa (yes, yes, I’m a Germiston girl);
  2. Dowerglen, South Africa;
  3. River Ridge, South Africa;
  4. Because “lived” is past tense…I can’t put down my current location…so, you’re left with three entries above I’m afraid.

Four of my Favorite Foods

  1. Sushi;
  2. Roast Chicken with roast potatoes and the works;
  3. Raclette;
  4. Chocolate (that’s a food right….? Daft question…of course it is πŸ˜€ ).Chocolate

Four Movies I’ve Watched More Than Once

Only four????? What???? Ok, fine…four it is:

  1. Last of the Mohicans (I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen this one);
  2. Catch and Release;
  3. The Magnificent Seven (1960);
  4. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Four TV Shows I Watch

I don’t watch TV…sorry.

Peaky Blinders (does that count?)

PeakyBlinders5

And Rome….many years back…

Four Things I’m Looking Forward to This [Coming] Year (2018)

  1. Taking things as they come;
  2. More experiences in my new home in the northern hemisphere;
  3. Seeing my mother again when she finally joins us here in our new home;
  4. Spending time with family and friends.

Four Things I Can’t Live Without

Hmmm…I know this sounds all soppy but having made this big move to Europe from way down South Africa way…I’ve realised that there is only one thing I can’t live without…family and pets. Other than that, I missed absolutely nothing while I was waiting for the container. Neither do I miss the items I left behind altogether. I realised that we accumulate way too much and don’t really need most of it.

Now back to the lighter things…

Four Places I’ve Visited

  1. Argentina;
  2. New York;
  3. Thailand;
  4. Cape Town.

Four Pet Peeves

Hmmm…going to give this one a miss – I mean, I’d rather focus on positives…

Four Things I Wish I Could Do

  1. Parkour – it looks soooo awesome;
  2. Speak Mandarin (I’ve started once before but didn’t have the time to learn);
  3. Climb the Eiger Nordwand;
  4. Finish writing the screenplay I started more than 5 years and just never get around to working on.Eiger (3.970 m, Berner Alpen, Nordwestseite), von Kleine Scheidegg aus

Four Subjects I Studied at School

  1. History;
  2. Mathematics;
  3. Physical Science;
  4. Computer Studies.

in contrast to my Uni subjects:

  1. Philosophy;
  2. Classics (Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt, Death and Dying in the Ancient World and all those exciting things);
  3. Practical Music Studies (Piano and Organ);
  4. Composition Techniques and Form.

Four Things Near Me Right Now

Hmmm…how near is near?

  1. A tower pile of DVDs awaiting a first watch…some a re-watch;
  2. A mountain of paperwork;
  3. A mountain of rock, grass, trees and snow at the top;
  4. A world of new experiences awaiting me here in my new home.

So…now for the hard part…tagging fellow bloggers…oh, well, guess what, I’ve just tagged you! Yes…you…
