20 (Non-Bookish) Facts About Me

imageedit_6_3986381877

Hello lovelies!! I thought today I’d make my very first non-bookish post!! I love reading these type of posts, they make it easy to learn a little bit about the bloggers you follow. So here are 20 completely random facts about me!! 

1.) I have a younger sister who is less than 11 months younger than me! I’ve never met any other siblings who are as close in age as we are. Every year we are the same age for a month and a day!

2.) Aside from reading, my hobbies include knitting and watching every tv show ever.

3.) The only major fear I have is of the ocean. I’m not afraid of water, but of the ocean itself. There’s too many unknown things about it, plus all the scary things we DO know about it. This fear only developed in recent years, but it’s a big one. You won’t catch me going on a cruise anytime soon!

4.) I’m starting mortuary school in a couple weeks! I love seeing peoples faces when I tell them what I’m going to school for.

5.) My family fosters cats, and because of that we’ve ended up keeping a couple of the ones that don’t get adopted. We currently have 6 cats! And two cute pit bulls! It’s a bit crazy around here, but I love them all!! D36569E8-A27E-4718-9E24-974B64FAC511

6.) I dropped out of high school and got my GED (General Equivalency Diploma) when I was 17. I was too far behind because of missing so much class when I was sick that I was not going to be able to graduate with my class.

7.) I love makeup! But I’m unable to wear anything but eye makeup and lipstick because I have super sensitive skin.

8.) Last year I went on a two month long road trip around the US and Canada! I went with a friend I met online who had never been to America before! (They’re from Germany!) It was one of the best (and hardest) things I’ve ever done!

9.) I’ve had over 25 surgeries. Most on my back, but a couple on my abdomen too.

10.) My two comfort shows are Grey’s Anatomy and The Vampire Diaries. Whenever I’m sick or feeling sad I put on reruns of one or the other.

11.) My very first job was at a floral shop! I miss it and I think it’s why I love flowers so much now.

12.) I have 1 tattoo, but I would love a ton more!

13.) I’m traveling 8 hours by car in September to see Troye Sivan in concert and I can’t wait!!

14.) I love children so much, but I never want any of my own. I can’t wait to be an auntie though!

15.) I love history museums! I would spend everyday in them if I could!

16.) I’ve traveled a lot, but never out of North America.

17.) One of my all time favorite movies is 10 Things I Hate About You.

18.) I would eat pasta every single day if it wasn’t so bad for me.

19.) I have bad anxiety and depression, but have recently gotten both under control with the help of medication. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

20.) I’ve only been blogging for about 3 months now, but I have met some of the most amazing people already. Our (not so) little book community has been wonderful and I am SO glad I decided to start this blog. I love you guys so much and I’m looking forward to doing this for a long time!

Well, now you know a little more about me!! I would love to see some of your posts like this, so feel free to link me in the comments or tag me if you do it later on!!

  1. These were so interesting to read! My sister and brother are 11 months apart in age as well. They’ve never known anyone so close in age as them either. And your pets 😍 it’s such an amazing thing that you and your family do fostering the cats!

  2. This is an awesome post. I did one with five things about myself when I first started blogging but it wasn’t that great. I may consider doing one like this soon. All these facts are pretty interesting. I’m not really a cat person but I love big dogs. I don’t have any animals. And even if I did everyone in my house argues over what we would get.

  3. Oh i loved this! We adopted all of our pets! We haven’t seen where we could foster animals, but I doubt we could because my cats aren’t friendly to others and it’s an all girls household here haha. I also have one tattoo too!

  4. Yay for kitties!!!

    I love the ocean but I remember when I went snorkeling in Hawaii and kind of freaked out when I saw all the life there are the shoreline! I grew up in San Diego and will always be a beach lover but the water in California is too cold to have clarity. Now every time seaweed rubs up against my legs I am convinced it’s fish.

    • Aww thanks Abi!!
      Now you can say you have a friend who is (gonna be) a mortician!
      It was certainly a lot, but I survived and that’s what matters!
      My parents had their hands full, but it’s their own faults lol!! My sis and I almost killed each other when we were younger, but we’re best friends now!
