Hopping on the band wagon to say simmer22 and I are quite similar. c: Except people think I'm older than what I actually am, even without makeup. The most extreme case I can think of is that when I was 12 or 13, I politely turned down a slightly tipsy gentleman who was well too old for me by disclosing my true age when asked. His eyes grew wide, "I thought you were like, 18. You look so much older.."
Ever since then, it's never left. Now that I'm actually nearing 18, people think I'm in my early 20s! It's so strange. I personally don't see it, since I consider myself to be stuck with a chronic baby face.

Let's see.. Oh, others also never would of guessed I actually have a deep fascination with the paranormal, and follow a metaphysical path myself. I suppose that's due the fact I generally avoid discussing such matters should they happen to arise since I'm from a more conservative area.

People tend to be surprised about my age as well and in some cases donít even believe me when I tell them my age. Iím currently 18 but a look a few years younger.

When my dad bought me The simpsons hit and run for PS2, I went into the shop with my dad and the shopkeeper asked him whether I was 7 years old or over as that was the age rating and I immediately said the the shop keeper that I was 12 years old in an irritated tone, although I wasnít intending on sounding so harsh anyway the shop keeper suddenly felt really bad for assuming that I was seven or younger and she apologised to me a number of time.

For a person who doesn't care what they look like, friends and family are always pleasantly surprised when I pick out nice stuff for them to try on or buy. But I don't have much of an interest in clothes, furniture and interiors however are my thing (which is why I love the sims really) its like a free customisable canvas

It's been many years, but one thing I know surprised the hell out of my coworkers is I'm very liberal, and an atheist. They had assumed for years I must be conservative and religious, because I'm really shy and quiet, don't talk much, don't drink, and for a long time, a very conservative and religious coworker was my best/only friend at work. They thought since we got along so well, I must be like him. This coworker who was surprised (also a liberal atheist) was so shocked that I was not who he thought I was, that he asked my permission to tell two other coworkers since apparently they'd all gotten the same impression. I guess part of the surprise for them was that I'd worked with these people for almost a decade, and they had no clue.

ME too! Also no, I have not had a stroke. And I'm not snarling at you, I've always had an ugly smile. I spent years in front of a mirror trying to make a smile...nope, the lips never will turn UP.

Likely my resonance for candles. They can alter the atmosphere of a room and provide heat certainly, but, I rather find enjoyment in observing the way the flame moves; watching the wax of a candle vaporize into hydrogen and carbon. There is much that I come to understand about life when I stare extensively into the base of a flame.

My music taste. I don't mean to sound like one of those "I'm a young person who listens to OLD MUSIC" people; I hate them myself.
I grew up with my parents' music tastes. Midnight Oil, AC/DC, Rolling Stones from my dad. Black Sabbath, Twisted Sister, Pink Floyd, and the Ramones from my mum.
Through that, I've come to find the Sex Pistols, Misfits, and a bunch of great punk rock and metal. People just don't expect a young girl to be into that stuff.

My waking-up schedule is as follows: "Wake up because you have work (Or play Sims)", "Wake up because you have something else you need to be awake for (Sims)", or "Wake up because it's sometime past 1 PM and you can't be in bed all day", or "Wake up, because brain (Sims) says you've had enough sleep, even if you really haven't".

Last night I got up at 3 PM, and went to bed 7.30 AM, just as an example (Were you up playing Sims from 15:00, to 07:30? ). I'm slightly better at keeping to a cycle when I've got work, but only slightly. Mostly it's "be in bed somewhere between 12 and 2 AM, and get up at 6.20 AM", and weekends/days off it's "be in bed before 4 AM, and get up at around 12 AM", giving me roughly 8 hours once in a while so my brain gets happy.
FIFY I feel your pain!

For me, it's my patience, and compassion towards others. Especially with children. With kids, and I'm including teenagers here, I have the patience of an oyster, and my compassion knows no bounds. After all, they are our future . I just don't seem like the type.

A lot of people are always surprised with how I can recall events in great detail or remember stuff which could be considered "petty" or "minor". That, and back when I was in middle school people would always be surprised at how fast I was going in computer class. It's kinda hard NOT to when they are teaching you the fundamentals of using a computer! haha you should've seen all of the other students when I was using Audacity (the school computers had it pre-installed) and I was recording music on Grooveshark (It was like Spotify. I don't think it's around anymore). Then there's the time when I made a "mashup" of "Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer and "Super Freak" by Rick James. Yet again: It's not all that hard to do since the 2 songs are the same key and close to the same tempo. lol

Same here. It probably would surprise some people that myself, a 24 year old would be listening to Frank Sinatra. I also got to listen to AC/DC and Midnight Oil thanks to my mum.
We actually had a Midnight Oil concert a few weeks ago, but I had to work

My distaste for the corporate American office environment. I was pretty much groomed for office work starting in 4th grade due to the school system in Washington and I began to hate it after a certain point in my young adulthood.

Unless it's an office that creates video games or translates foreign language cartoons, I am not applying. Minutiae such as various prices of manila folders under quantities and conditions would probably fall out my ears along with shellfish to prove just how out of place I feel in such a mundane environment.

Although I can be organized, I can be messy and if the manager is a complete jerk and pushes employees around, I'm not going to say "I told you so..." If the building goes up in smoke and fire and the timid employees along with the financial assets are missing after the damage report.

(My father says this is more or less accurate to the work environment he had at Microsoft.)

To be direct, I only work in non-toxic environments. I tend to feed off the energy emitted from people in a bad mood.

One thing which surprises people is when I can recreate a tone of a sound with my voice near-perfectly. I don't know if it's any real talent or not, but it's something I've always been able to do. lol.

I am currently watching an anime titled Osomatsu-san, which is the 80th creator birthday anniversary series based on Fujio Akatsuka's Osomatsu-kun. Osomatsu-kun was originally from the early 1960s (Showa era, postwar Hirohito rule) and it revolved around identical sextuplet brothers who had a wacky set of neighbors in their neighborhood like Iyami, a Francophile with a serious overbite with a weird gag of twisting his limbs and shouting "Sheeh!", which launched 1,000 sight gags after its debut.

Osomatsu-san focuses on the sextuplets in their early 20s in 2015 (Heisei era, under Akihito's rule) and I don't know the target age of Osomatsu-kun, but Osomatsu-san has some pretty adult humor.

It's obscure outside of Japan, but its revival was worth the watch

I guess there are a couple of things that I suppose could be surprising to people who don't know me all that well!

For starters, everyone seems to think I'm always either mad or upset because I have a resting bitch face, when in reality I am usually pretty happy!
I am also a budding writer, and am currently working on getting my first novel published... it needs a lot of work though lol.

The resting bitch face issue for me actually stems from my inability to smile unless genuinely pleased by either jokes or encouraging gestures. My conditions of have a resting bitch face are the result of me being mildly affected by Asperger's Syndrome. I look normal from the other side of a room at a party, but if Dana Carvey, in character as Garth Algar were to come to me, he may end up seeing sneaker type burnouts of me escaping. I am actually suffering from claustrophobia and agoraphobia and I am constantly fighting the urge to panic.

I congratulate you on publishing your first official work. I write in my spare time, but so far, I have quite a few unfinished stories due to stress, lack of discipline and my Blargh-worthy malady of having artist's block of any sort.

I don't really like bacon. I don't hate it, but I'm just not a big fan of it. I avoid it if I can, and I really don't get the hype. Whenever I tell people this, they go "YOU DON'T LIKE BACON??!!" in the exact same way. Every. Time. Some people do it again and again. Like, relax. It just means you can have more bacon. If we're out and I order something with bacon, I will purposefully not ask for them to remove it, just so I can give it to you. It's a win-win situation for you.
