12 Facts about me!

Its Monday! I had a relatively slow relaxing weekend with the parents and since it consisted mainly of doing laundry and thesis writing I figure a recap will bore you all to death. So today instead you get me talking about me. Some time ago, Reisha nominated me for the "One lovely blog" award and I'm supposed to share 7 facts about myself. Because I like to babble and I am a rebel, it turned into way more than 7 facts so let's just roll with it! I have mentioned a few of these before but there are some new faces around so enjoy!


1. I am deathly afraid of lizards. Like its an abnormal fear. Just today I was watching a YouTube vlog and the guy in the vlog panned to a lizard in his yard. You know I had to stop watching. My pores raised, I started to breathe heavy and everything. Its serious and to some quite comical. Really guys, I once almost took a plane home from Barbados because there was a lizard in my room #truestory. If you want to know where the irrational fear came from I spoke about it here. Me when I see a lizard:


2. I hate pictures of myself. But I've said that before as well. I look way bigger in pictures because of my boobs and because I'm 4'11. Also, I just think I look better in person. Especially full body photos of myself - they make me physically cringe. I'm getting better but this is still a work in progress. Just to be clear - I'm not whining or complaining about my body, I actually quite like my body and get compliments about my unique shape daily ... I just think it looks odd in photos. 

3. My biggest dream in life is to be a mother and a wife. It clearly also my most illusive. I spent wasted a chunk of my twenties with the guy I would have put my head on a block I would have fulfilled that dream with ... Long story sort, I await that dream again. These are the cards I was dealt. Not complaining, just dealing with it.

4. I love doing the laundry. I think it's calming... BUT I hate to put away laundry. It's quite the conundrum. 
#yup

5. I was skipped a standard (grade) in primary (elementary) school. As a result I was always younger than everyone in my classes throughout school and I had the worst handwriting. #random

6. My favourite body part is my lips. I love my lips.

7. I verily believe that I was conceived on my father's birthday. I was born on August 26th. My dads birthday is November 24th. You do the math. I also figured this out when I was a young, precocious kid and about made my mama choke when I asked her:


8. My feet are size 5. Cute yes. Incredibly stressful to find a shoe that doesn't look like it belongs to a child? Also yes.

9. Most of my wardrobe is black. Like most of it. 


10. However ... Most of everything else I own is pink. My Ipad case, laptop case, camera case, cell phone case, yoga mat, headphones, sneakers, gym bag, this blog. You name it ... its probably pink. What can I say, "I believe in pink" and this is one of my favourite quotes:


11. I love to travel (like a lot) and I've been to quite a few places in my time. However if someone told me today that they would pay me to travel the world and write I would quit my job.... immediately.

12. I'm actually a very private person. I know, I know, how is that possible and I have a blog? No clue but it's true though. 

And that's it!!

P.S. - Bear with me this week, my plate is extra full and I may be sporadic as I work on my thesis. I had a sudden incident happen with my original thesis topic (more on that later this week) and I had to re-arrange my entire thesis last week causing me to be very flaky blog-wise. I have unanswered comments in my inbox and I hate that! I take my time in answering every comment. Don't worry though I'm around and will be more around by mid to end of this week :)

Have a great Monday guys!!!

  1. I am a pretty private person too which is weird with the whole blogging thing. Haha! Birthday sex, not sure why you did the math on that, I totally avoided the whole topic of parental sex. Immaculate conception is easier on the brain. ;)

  2. My feet are a size 5 too! Sometimes I can get away with 5.5 but it sucks trying to find shoes. Although sometimes I can shop in the kids department and that's kinda awesome...when they have cute shoes. And I don't think I've ever met anyone who enjoys putting laundry away so you aren't alone there! I hate it too!

  7. Ugh putting away laundry! Once it's done I love how it feels to be done and I feel all accomplished, but until then it's just annoying! You're too funny about lizards, you could not live where I do because we constantly have lizards around, even in the winter!

  8. I am also very private, which is why we just use initials on the blog :) I totally hear you on the photo thing...I'm just under 4'10" so I completely understand about looking better in person!!!

  9. Loved learning more about you - I'm definitely a fan of travelling! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  10. I like full body photos of myself but hate any that are too close because my face is round and it just looks fat if it's taking up the photo (I usually avoid selfies for that reason). I was younger than everyone in my classes growing up because I moved in the middle of elementary school and I hated that. Dying at you figuring out you were conceived on your dad's birthday, that's too funny! Loved learning more about you, girl :)

  11. I also skipped a grade! Too cool! hahaha. nice realization about your dad's birthday. I was made on Valentine's day and my brother was made on dad's birthday. What a funny fact!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha you're so funny :) Enjoyed learning more about you

  13. Laundry is the worst and I admire people who enjoy it. I wish you could share that with me as I stare at the laundry in my house that needs to be dealt with.

    Look at you, being all smart! That's actually pretty awesome that you skipped a grade.

    I have giant feet. And i'm short so they look even bigger. I fee this is why I'm so clumsy.

  14. Eek sorry for a crazy week! Don't go to Isla Mujeres (Mexico) or you'll flip your shit from all the iguanas walking around haha. I hear you on loving to do laundry and despising having to put it away. Grown-up problems! Cheers to lots of pink and loving yourself ;)

  15. Okay I just did a lot of math and I don't think I was a birthday or anniversary gift, so thank dog for that. Sorry about your thesis troubles! And I hear you on #2. I can look in the mirror and be like, "Yeah, okay. This is working." As soon as a camera lens is on me it's like all hell broke loose.

  16. Hahaha I remember your lizard fear! haha.
    I don't know what would be worse - having size 5 feet, or having size 10s. you either look like a child, or a clown. Can't win! haha
    hope your week goes ok darl xxx

  17. I really want to be a wife and mother too. Which is a new revelation for me...sort of. I always wanted to as a kid, but then for the past year or so I've been in the whole, I'm not sure if I ever want to get married or have kids mentality...and if I don't it's ok. However, I realized within the last week that it's what I really want. It hit me when I saw a cute baby, which always makes me say aww, but then also saw a screaming baby, which normally makes me say oook I'm good. This time I was all "aww I wanna make it better!" Also, the fact that OK has a kid doesn't bother me which is normally a deal breaker.

  18. Ughhhh I hate putting away the laundry!!! And I have a fear of spiders equivalent to your fear of lizards. I have the opposite problem with shoes, I am normally a 9.5 or 10 and so my feet always look huge. Sigh. Good luck with your thesis!!!

  19. I also consider myself private yet I blog.

    Putting laundry away sucks.

  21. Lol at number 4. I sooo identify!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really enjoyed this because I'm a new follower to your blog. Great 'getting to know you' stuff.

    I gotta agree with you...you've got great lips. Women pay heaps of money to look like yours. Yours suit your perfectly!

    #2 - I feel ya.

  23. I love these facts! lol to #1 and #7!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Totally agree about putting away the laundry! I do our laundry every weekend and it takes me to about Wednesday to put away and fold etc. Oh and K folds his own because nobody got time for dat! lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. size 5 feet?! I'm total opposite side of the spectrum, I have huge feet =( Sometimes it is hard finding cute shoes when you have big feet too lol. I love this post!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I loved learning more about you :). And you and me both would love to be married and have kids. It is illusive but I'm hoping God will send me what I need or at least the ability not to overlook what's right for me. Wonderful post.

    1. Yay for under 5 feet!!! Size 6 is cute and findable. I'd love to be a 6!

  30. sending prayers and good vibes your way for this thesis!

    and I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT DOING LAUNDRY

  31. fun to learn more about you! i have a similarly crazy fear of worms - so random! and size 5 feet sound so cute but i can understand it's probably impossible to find shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I loved reading this-- I haaate pictures of myself too and I recently noticed that most of my clothes are black or very neutral even though I love color in other things! Hopefully rearranging your thesis is going well- that sounds so stressful!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good luck with your thesis!! I'm just under 5 foot, I have like 3/4 of an inch on you. I was just saying the other day out of spiders, snakes and lizards I was okay with lizards, but I understand irrational fears A LOT! I actually tune out the laundry buzz more than I get it I think, lol. It's bad. I don't think I'll ever give up the married with kids dream. Most of my clothes are black, white or grey but I try to buy one color item whenever I shop like that. Also, ALL THE PINK - that's so me too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love these posts! It's so much fun getting to know you ladies more. LOL at your fear of lizards, I don't mind the little guys it's the big iguanas that freak me out eeeep! And I also love doing the laundry, but the folding part is so much work! I love knowing they're all put away neatly and are clean, but man alive it's a lot of work :-P

  35. See, my own style and shoe preferences tend to err on the side of childish, so even though I wear a size 7, I can still find children's shoes that fit and yes, I buy them sometimes. It's true though, in the USA, few adult brands makes shoes under size 5. Here in Asia, a lot of ladies have feet that would be equivalent to size 4 or 5, so if you're ever on this side of the world, do some shoe shopping!

  36. I'm a size 5 too! The only plus about it is heels are never sold out for me lol
