There are many random things about me that I thought would be fun to share with you all. I saw this on Instagram where someone wrote 10 random things about themselves. It was so funny to read because even though we try to be ‘cool’ and everything, there are some really weird and random things about each and every one of us that isn’t always easy to realize until we really think about it. As I started to jot down some ideas I realized that there are many more than 10 and many more than 13 things but as I said, sometimes its hard to realize. These are in no order what so ever, I’m just kinda going for it… As random a number as 13 is, here are 13 random things about me:
1. I love plane journeys but flying over water freaks me out.
Lets just take a moment here. How many times have I been on a plane? I don’t even know but I am so so thankful for it all because I love to travel. I love planes. Like, love love love them but I get so scared going over water. Even though crashing on ground is worse, there’s something about drowning (above all other ways of dying) that really scares me.
Well that was a bit depressing. Don’t worry it gets happier ;)
2. I think writing letters is still the way to go.
I love technology and Facebook and everything but receiving a letter is just the best. Someone spending time to write a letter is just the cutest thing and I love it. Plus, pen pals are just the coolest things…
3. I have many weird obsessions.
These include, flower and shell picking, the colour blue, tea, America and notebooks. I can’t really explain these to you.
4. I hate many things.
These include, fish, bacon and baths. Again, I can’t explain these to you.
5. To-do lists rock my world.
There is just something very satisfying about ticking off something that needs to be done. I like being organised. I don’t like not knowing whats happening and I really don’t like being late. I am one of those people who still have a paper diary instead of a calender on my phone ;) I never understood the whole phone calender thing.
6. Hugs make everything better.
No explanation needed.
7. Sunbathing really bores me.
I mean, lets face it, I will never get a tan. Its just hopeless, there’s no point in stressing myself out about it ;) Nah, I actually like having pale skin. I just can’t sunbathe for any length of time. I need to read a book or go swimming. Night time is for sleeping, there’s no need for it in the day;)
8. I love the smell of new carpets.
9. I love, love.
I just think it’s the most beautiful thing. Getting a tad cheesy here, I know.
10. Painting my nails really stresses me out.
I have a problem….I don’t like not having my nails painted but I really detest painting them. 1. I can’t paint my nails, I’m not really very good at it. 2. I’m not patient enough to wait for it to dry. And knowing my luck, I always need the toilet straight after painting them so that’s always a bit of a dilemma. Its either, ruin your nails or painfully wait for them to dry. I often go for the ruin your nails option. The pain just isn’t worth it.
11. I am extremely protective over my earphones.
I am a very sociable person. I’m always up for hanging out with friends and all that jazz but I can also be very unsociable. I like being alone and having my own space. And when I can’t be alone, music gives me my own space. If that even makes sense? I like to just block the world out sometimes. Plus, teenagers can really annoy me. I can’t survive a bus journey or a walk home from school (if I’m not with a friend) without music. It just doesn’t happen. My earphones are the one thing I don’t let people borrow because I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t find them or if I lost them. Its a bit weird, but there ya go. Also, I don’t like the whole ‘lets listen to music together’ milarky either. I like hearing all the instruments not just half of them. Do you know what I mean? It just doesn’t sound as good with one earphone in. Anyway, enough about that ;)
12. I take everything everywhere.
You will very rarely see me without a bag of some sort. I always take a lot with me. I’m the kind of ‘go to girl’ if someone needs something. Tissues, inhalers, pens, make-up, paper, water and chewing gum are things people always need so someone has to be prepared. I always take a book with me everywhere as well. You never know when you’ll need something to do. I take my homework everywhere too… I rarely take my make-up because, honestly, applying it once is enough but other people might need it so… you get the idea ;)
13. Cute things are just ‘my thing’.
I love everything cute. People often associate me with being cute because I just love cute clothes, cute photos, cute ornaments, cute animals, cute everything. In fact, just to prove my point, my friend just texted me saying that we should go and find cute things for her new home:’)
This will either have made you laugh or think that I am an extremely weird person (which I am, so that is totally OK with me :) ) Or both.
