20 Things You Might Not Know About Me - Blog Tag
As a fun Friday post, I want to share some silly facts about myself for you all who might not know me well yet. This blog post is a part of the "20 Things You Might Not Know About Me" Blog Tag started by April from Blacksburg Belle. She began this blog tag experiment to build community with other bloggers in order to connect more and get to know each other better. This month’s topic is all about sharing just a little too much information about yourself. If you’d like to participate or want more info, check out the beginning post right here.
Question 1: How tall are you?
What you can’t tell from pictures on my blog is that I’m super short- Only 5’1.” Basically everyone is taller than me!
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
Ice-skating! I used to be a competitive figure skater for a few years, but nobody really knows about that because I quit when I was only 11 years old. I can still do spins and such though!
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
I get offended when bloggers don't respond back to the kind comments people leave them on their website. Unless you're Barack Obama or Beyonce, you have time to show some love back to your followers!
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
People who talk during movies.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
My favorite song in the history of the world is "Heartbeats" by The Knife.
Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop?
Elise Mahan Fine Art has really cool art prints. She has the most unique style that really speaks to me. I have three of Elise's pieces.
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
I, of course, love to read blogs and books. And I also enjoy playing my ukulele to clear my mind.
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
I don't really like typical junk foods, but I am a huge lover of bacon and doughnuts. So there's that.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I love dogs, but I don't have any of my own pets currently. I travel too much. :(
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
What counts as a favorite book to a book lover? Is it the ones that make me feel the most? Or the ones that fill my heart the most? Because "Wild", by Cheryl Strayed, made me cry more than any book ever in the very first chapter. But as for the books that have captured my heart and imagination, it would be these:
Nonfiction: "The Blue Zones" or "Blink"
Fiction: "The Shadow of the Wind" or, to be basic but honest, my childhood love, the Harry Potter series
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Not so much embarrassed, but more awkward feeling. I was alone on my road trip up the East Coast a few weeks ago and stopped to eat at this super nice, trendy restaurant in Raleigh. Everyone was there with big groups of colleagues or friends, and here I am all by myself at a dinner table looking all lonely. People kept coming up to me asking why I was there alone and trying to make conversation with me, like they felt bad for me. It made me feel super awkward! But the dinner ended up being one of the best I've ever had, and the restaurant owner gave me a big, free desert for being a trooper.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Honest Tea. Refreshing and not too sweet!
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Who can pick?? I'm much more of a TV series person- I get into dramas like Breaking Bad and Dexter. But my weirdest love, and they're really my favorite, are Korean romance dramas. I recommend, in this order: Rooftop Prince, Love Rain, Boys Over Flowers, Dream High, and 49 Days. So emotional and addicting! Trust me on this!
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I think I was a combination of many of those. I hung out with band kids, I was on the dance team, but I was also artsy in my free time and did well in all of my classes... I guess I was well rounded!
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I would love to live in New Zealand! Or my favorite place on the Western Hemisphere, Costa Rica :)
Question 17: PC or Mac?
Only PCs for me!
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
My boyfriend Stefan surprised me with doughnuts when he came home last week. It was love.
Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
Louis CK always makes me laugh. Robert Downy Jr. always makes me swoon.
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
There are so many bloggers that I love- But I think April Bowles Olin, Mayi Carles, and I would make a crazy trio! :)
And that's it for my fun facts! I'm going to tag three bloggers that I'd love to know more about: Julie from Girl On the Move, Gina Alyse at Creative Callings, and Liz from Liz and Lifestyle. Please feel free to participate and answer these twenty questions on your own blog, or not! It won't hurt my feelings if you don't. :) Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
