Get to Know Me | 50 Facts

Hi friends!

I finally put together a 50 facts about me post. I figured it was time for you all to learn more about me. I uploaded this post on YouTube in video form, which I will drop below. For anyone that doesn’t want to watch and would rather keep reading, scroll down to do so.

I hope you enjoy!

P.S. My video presence and editing skills aren’t really up to snuff yet, but I’m sure I’ll get better if I keep doing things like this in the future. You’ll have to let me know if you want more videos!

 

 

  1. I don’t get headaches. I may have had a few when I was young, but I don’t remember for sure. 
  1. I also don’t get hangovers. At the worst I might feel a little dizzy and have a mildly sore stomach, but that’s it.
  1. I’m left handed and don’t really use my right hand that often.
  1. I sucked my thumb for a long time and had a “blankie” security blanket. I didn’t grow out of it until I was maybe 6 or 7. 
  1. Careers I’ve considered in the past were to become a makeup artist, personal chef, web designer, or modeling.
  1. I used to collect/hoard glassware. My favorite pieces were vases, small bottles with corks, and old spice jars.
  1. I can’t play any instruments but I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the piano.
  1. I used to be in a church choir as a kid and absolutely loved it. 
  1. I have Dyscalculia. It is difficulty in learning or comprehending arithmetic, such as difficulty in understanding numbers, performing math calculations and learning math facts. It is generally seen as the mathematical equivalent to dyslexia.
  1. I love listening to movie, video game, and TV soundtracks.
  1. My absolute favorite film score composer is Hans Zimmer.
  1. I rarely buy clothing, shoes, housewares, furniture, or accessories brand new. I almost always get them from thrift stores or make it myself.
  1. I am an ambivert. I have both introverted and extroverted tendencies that go back and forth.
  1. I love the beach and I love to swim. 
  1. I’ve never traveled outside of the US and I have a burning itch to one day change that.
  1. I have a very small and dear circle of friends, but I love meeting new people and socializing with others at times.
  1. I have social anxiety, but you may have a hard time picking up on it because I try to hide it. When I’m overly anxious in a social situation I’ll sometimes turn red, get dizzy/shaky, speak in broken sentences, and misspeak words. 
  1. I was homeschooled my entire life from K-12.
  1. I strongly believe that all children should be taught home economics in schools. Things like how to pay bills, budget money, cook basic meals, repair household things, and so on.
  1. I love skincare products more than makeup.
  1. I have no plans to ever stop being vegan. I will continue to promote it to others so maybe they will one day make the switch.
  1. I love carb heavy foods. Pasta, pizza, breads, etc. 
  1. I generally prefer savory snacks over sweet ones. My favorite sweet junk foods are Oreos, ice cream, and cookies. I also don’t eat much candy at all.
  1. I love both cats and dogs, but have a special soft spot for cats. A lot of people just don’t understand how awesome they are.
  1. Large age gaps in relationships/friendships (between adults) don’t bother me. I don’t like when people shame or pick on it either.
  1. I find that I get along better and make friends easier with people older than I am.  
  1. I hate olives.
  1. I am fairly certain that I have a sensitivity to soy that results in my acne getting worse, but it doesn’t stop me from eating it occasionally.
  1. My biggest dream is to work independently/remotely. 
  1. I have a very large extended family on both my mom and dad’s side, and I can’t see them as often as I want to.
  1. I was kicked out when I turned 18. 
  1. I’m not close with my parents, but we still talk and see each other once in a while and on holidays.
  1. I am deathly scared of centipedes. Spiders are a close second.
  1. As a child I was attacked by a swarm of fire ants on my right foot and it left a visible scar.
  1. I have a really obnoxious laugh. Sometimes I laugh so hard that I snort or honk like a goose.
  1. I only have one grandparent that’s still alive. It’s my grandfather on my mom’s side of the family. He isn’t involved or interested in being in our lives.
  1. I’m a horror movie junkie.
