20 Random Facts About Me
20 min read
Hey guys! I’ve been tagged by the hilarious and adorable Hannah over at Millennial Talks to do this random facts challenge! First, go on over to Hannah’s post and read her 20 Random Facts and check out other posts on her blog. She’s informative, entertaining and chats about her progress on her blog making an income online!
Ah…I remember back in the good ol’ days of Myspace and Limewire when we would fill out Q&A’s like these for our besties. We also secretly hoped that our crushes would read them and magically fall in love with us, too…
Just me? Ahem. Well anyway!
I thought it’d be fun to go ahead and do this post so that my readers (you!) can get to know me a little bit more!
Without further ado, let’s begin!
1 | When was the last time you cried?
Well – as an entrepreneur, you kind of cry a lot. You cry when something good happens..you cry when something bad happens…it’s all just a mess sometimes, amiright? Okay, maybe not all the time. I’m not really a crier, so it’s been quite some time. I think I was super hungry one day…. and it seems to always be food related. As in, I can’t have that delicious plate of cheesy fries? Cue the tears!
2 | If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Yes! I try to be generous, kind, understanding, supportive, strong, truthful…and the qualities that I personally would want from a friend. I just read something the other day that said to list out the qualities that you would want in a best friend. Then, turn the tables and ask yourself: do you have all of those qualities?
It was a good thinker.
3 | Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Did I just talk about crying over french fries? That’ll be a yes!
4 | What’s the first thing you notice about people?
How kind they are to others. This is incredibly important to me.
5 | Scary movie or happy endings?
I like a good ol’ rom-com. (Where have all the rom-coms gone?!)
6 | Favorite smells?
Hmm..delicious food…peppermint candles because they remind me of my gramma…Bath and Body Work lotions…puppy breath…the usual.
7 | What’s the furthest you’ve ever been away from home?
8 | Do you have any special talents?
You mean, besides being my badass self? Just kidding – kinda. I can type at 120 wpm, which is pretty impressive so I’ve heard. NERD ALERT!
9 | Where were you born?
What is this, the answer to all of my secret questions for password retrieval? I should tell you my first dogs name and the name of my street too I suppose :p
10 | What are your hobbies?
Working. Seriously, it’s what I do for fun. But also, listening to podcasts, watching Ghost Adventures, watching my favorite Youtubers, reading books (fiction and non-fiction) and painting or drawing.
11 | What did you want to be when you were growing up?
A vet, an entrepreneur, an astronaut, or a teacher haha. At least I got to do one and a half of those! (A pilot and an entrepreneur! If you count me teaching on the blog, then I’ve pretty much made my dreams come true lol).
12 | How many countries have you been to?
One. Sad day 🙁 Just good ol’ Canada.
13 | What was your favorite and worst subject at school?
Favorite: career class, history or English. And surprisingly, economics.
Worst: Math math math math math math math
14 | What is your favorite drink?
Coffee, mmm yum. But nowadays I am kind of liking Tumeric Milk! Yes, the golden Indian drink. It’s good for you, and delicious!
15 | What would you (or have you) named your kids?
Ya know..probably something like Leshaniqua or Layshaybooboo. Just kidding, this one is a secret because sometime soon there might be real live children in my house and I don’t want people to make fun of our unborn spawns names!
16 | Who are your favorite YouTubers?
Ooh yes, I like this question. Amy Landino, Allison Marhshall with Wonderlass, Ellie & Jared (who live quite close to us!), Sunny Lenaduzzi, and countless more!
17 | How many boyfriends/girlfriends have you had?
As a woman in her (almost) thirties, how about we just go with the dignified answer of: I had a couple boyfriends in my teenage years that lasted a year or longer. Ha!
18 | Favorite memory from childhood?
I am going to go with Christmas with my family. My grandparents and parents work tirelessly to make it the most magical holiday for all of their kids. When it hits December first, IT’S ON! Bring on all the holiday baking, Christmas movies and present wrapping!!
In all seriousness, spending time with your loved ones is one of the most important things that you can ever do in your life. Don’t forget everything that your parents and grandparents do for you! AND CALL YOUR MOM!
19 | How would you describe your fashion sense?
Are we talking on days where people have to actually see me? *sigh* okay, fine I’ll tell ya what I normally wear. On days where I don’t have to see anyone I’m in my comfiest athleisurewear wear (of course!).
And on days where I actually interact with human beings I like to wear classic, simplistic chic styles (like on my Pinterest board here!) Random band tee’s also make an appearance sometimes.
20 | Tell us one of your bad habits?
Slouching! Not eating food when I’m hungry and ignoring it! Planning and then ignoring my own plans! Hahah. It happens to the best of us.
Alright, phew I am done with the torturing. I remember why I didn’t do so many of these as a teenager now… but it was still fun to relive the good old days of questionnaires!
Now what should we play next, kiss marry kill or MASH?
