50 Facts About Me

Hello there! Since the year is still so young, I am deeming this moment as the perfect opportunity to share way more about myself than you probably wanted to know. I admit this isn’t an overwhelmingly detailed TMI post that would make you wonder why on earth I felt the need to share but I feel it’s close enough (not at all). 50 facts about me! Let’s jump right into it…

  1. I was born in the summer (July 16) but I prefer the winter months.
  2. I’m majoring in English with a concentration in creative writing.
  3. I really like bread, buttered rolls especially.
  4. I usually drive in silence unless I’m in the car with other people then it’s like really loud. I use driving as my time to think while I take in the background noise.
  5. I’m not a big fan of sweets.
  6. I like the thought of nature and being one with it.
  7. I’m terrified of bugs. (LOL)
  8. I don’t like spaghetti nor do I enjoy marinara sauce.
  9. I don’t eat it a lot but I really like meatballs.

  12. Going to the movies is my idea of a fun-filled day, I blame their popcorn.

  14. I played volleyball, the violin, and I danced.
  15. I don’t subtract I think it’s weird, I usually just add. I’ve been doing it since I was little and my teachers always tried to “fix” me.
  16. If I don’t become a pediatrician, I’d really like to be a 3rd-grade teacher or a History or English professor.
  17. I have a great memory except when it comes to birthdays.
  18. I hate being late. Time makes me anxious.
  19. I have a phobia of touching or seeing loose strands of wet hair, it makes me physically ill.
  20. I’m not really a talkative person. I’d be okay with holding a phone to my ear and not saying anything. (Lol sorry)
  21. On the other hand, when I do talk I have a hard time shutting up.
  22. I was a terrible child in elementary school. (I apologize to all the teachers & students who had to deal with me then. My mother especially)
  23. I color coordinate everything and I don’t combine more than two colors, just the thought of it makes me really uneasy.
  24. I love when people open up to me.
  25. But I don’t particularly enjoy opening up to other people, I don’t like people worrying about me.
  26. Hearing people eat makes my skin crawl.
  27. I would like to go camping or hiking. Be adventurous.
  28. I learned enough French in high school to say ‘hi’ and ‘bye’. (So does that basically mean I learned nothing? hm)

  36. I like how in the older Pixar movies a lot of the same miscellaneous objects always show up.

    I absolutely love this post and I feel it coincides with your other previous post about passions, you confessed that you don’t really see yourself being passionate with anything but I definitely see tons of passionate things here in your facts !! By the way I love your custom cover photos for each post you make, so original. If you don’t mind me asking, how do you create them ?

      Thank you so much! I agree there are a lot of passion-filled things in here, kind of contradicting? Lol. For my cover photos, I actually take those pictures myself and then to edit them I use this site called Canva, they have an app as well, but I just use that site to create my cover templates and that’s it!! Also it’s totally free and easy to navigate through!
