7 Things You Might Not Know About Me


Hello, everyone! It’s another week which means another blog post! After last week’s rather sad post about losing my cat, I thought I’d try to brighten up my blog by posting a fun post all about me! (How narcissistic, but very fun for me to write!) Therefore, I present to you, seven facts you might not know about me- but after reading my post, will therefore know. Please use this information wisely and for good, never for evil. I’m trusting you!

I was tagged by Delta over at The Dead Books. She is an author, blogger, and all around fantastic person, so please check her out and send her some love.

Now, onto the facts aka or, rather, useless pieces of information that are about me! But honestly, it was super fun to write and really lifted my spirits. So I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

#1: I Love Elephants
It may have been because my mom introduced to the Babar the elephant books when I was very little, but ever since then, I’ve always loved elephants. There’s just something about these incredibly wrinkly, gentle intelligent giants with trunks that steal my heart. Plus, baby elephants are the cutest baby animals ever (have you seen that video of the baby elephant stepping on it’s trunk? Ridiculously cute!), and I heard a study that said that elephants view us the way we aka humans view dogs: they think we’re cute! Isn’t that the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard? It’s been a goal in my life for years to meet and befriend an elephant because I feel like I have a special connection with them. I hope I can get to meet one one day! (And that it’ll like me. Can you imagine if I finally got to meet an elephant and it tried to kill me? I’d probably die laughing from the irony. Like, literally. Because being trampled by an elephant is no joke.)

#2: I’m Really Interested in the Paranormal, But I’ve Never Seen a Ghost (I want to though! Or do I…?)
It started when I first discovered the paranormal section in the kids section at the library and from then on, I was hooked. I was reading ghost stories, Goosebumps books, and then later, horror movies and those ghost hunting reality shows. I was obsessed! (And still am!) I have a whole spooky bucket list of creepy places I’d like to visit (like haunted hotels, asylums, cemeteries, etc.) and see if I can experience anything or even ghost hunt a little! But as much as I’d love to see a ghost and find out if they’re real, I’m a little afraid of what I may encounter if I do actually encounter one. Would I freeze? Actually function and try to take a picture? Or try to communicate? Okay, let’s be honest, I’d probably just black out. But what a fun story it would be!

#3: I Love the Smell of Coffee but Absolutely Hate the Taste.
It makes coffee dates at Starbucks and coffee shops very awkward:

Date: “What are you going to get?”

Me: “Er, water.”

Date: “That’s it?”

Me: “Um, maybe a muffin?”

Date: “Do you not like coffee?”

Me: “Uh, not really.”

Date: “Then why did we meet here???”

Me: “Because that’s what people do when they meet a person for a date that they met off of an app!!!”

Story of my life.

#4: I’d Much Rather Shop Online for Clothes Than Go Actual Clothes Shopping in a Store
It’s easier for me to see how it looks on the model posing in it online, plus I don’t have the patience to go through racks and racks of clothes and then try things and then get frustrated that I don’t like anything. I’m very picky about the clothes I like and trying on clothes is one of the most exhausting things in the world! And don’t get me started on trying on jeans! (Bane of my existence!)

#5: I Absolutely Love the Rain
The sound of it, the smell of it, the cloudy gray skies that come with it. Ah, it’s just magical. Maybe it’s because I live in the desert where we don’t get a lot of rain, but when it rains it always feel like a wonderful day. I know that’s the opposite for most people, but having a day off where it’s raining, and you can cuddle up on the couch with a book, a snack, something to drink, and a pet by your feet while listening to the rain, is the loveliest day I can think of. And I’m such a horror fan that thunder and lightning makes me happy too!

#6: I Feel Like My Heart and Soul Belong in England
I blame it all on Harry Potter. I was hooked on England from the moment I read those books. That country must be magical if that’s where Hogwarts is and the author who wrote those books lives. For years, I had to have everything with a Union Jack, red telephone booth, or Big Ben on it or shaped like one of them. I loved anything that had to do with British history, like the Tudors and Queen Elizabeth. I just grew to love it more and more, with all of it’s rich history, historical landmarks, the royals, and the fact that it rained there all the time (see above) and was so rich with greenery. When I finally got to go a few years ago, it felt like coming home. Sort of. One of my biggest dreams is that I first either win or inherit a bonkers amount of money, buy a nice flat in London, and then buy an adorable, old English cottage in the countryside somewhere in England, where it’s beautiful and green and looks like it came out of a storybook. But sadly, I never play the lottery and have no distant rich relatives that are on their deathbeds and have put me in their will. Sigh.

#7. I Hate Bananas
There. I said it. I KNOW everyone loves them. I KNOW they’re very healthy and a great substitute for baking. I KNOW being vegetarian and even vegan means that you HAVE to LOVE bananas. But I honestly can’t stand them. They don’t taste that great, and I hate their texture. Mushy and stringy from where the peel came away. I mean, it’s cool that they have their own natural case, like oranges, but at least oranges are tasty! But who seriously saw a banana turn black and though “hmm… let’s see what we could do with this..." and then saved it and turned it into a BREAD instead of THROWING IT OUT like you do with most other fruits that turn BLACK??? Sorry, I'm just very passionate about my dislike of bananas. I mean, they look super cute, but are otherwise a very gross fruit.

So what did you think of my seven facts you didn’t know about me? Does anyone else love the smell of coffee but dislike the taste? I’d love to know if there are more people like me out there! (Should we form a support group?) Let me know in the comments what you think about the post!

Stay Weird,
Emily

    1. Thank you!! And I'm glad you liked my post! I was afraid not too many people would read it because it's just silly facts about myself! I've always wanted to like tea, it sounds so comforting, but like coffee, I just don't like the taste, sadly. I bet it is! I'm jealous I don't have the taste buds for it. :( Thank you so much for reading and commenting! It means a lot!

  4. We have something in common there... I also don't like bananas... (I read somewhere that people could actually bond over things they don't like) ��Nice post

    1. Oh really??? Yay, I'm not the only one who doesn't like bananas! That makes me so happy to hear! And I bet that's totally true and I totally get that! We can be the anti-banana club! ;)

  5. I feel like if you do have the opportunity to encounter a ghost or spirit, your response is going to be triggered by their nature... Like, are they a positive energy or do you feel as though they are 'attacking' or trying to do harm in some way.

    1. That's an interesting thought, Britt! I hadn't thought about it that way. But then, I've never encountered a ghost before, haha. I hope if I do it'll be a positive experience because I'll encounter a positive energy. Anything other than positive energies I'd like to stay away from! lol.

      Thank you so so much for reading and commenting!!

  6. I really enjoyed reading this! I heard elephants are really intelligent and kind. Great taste there!
    As you already know, I'm very into the paranormal too! One of my guilty pleasures is watching Nuke's Top 5 on YouTube - those addictive compilation of creepy clips! You may enjoy them too.

    I totally agree that trying on jeans is the worse! I'm okay trying on other stuff though, if I don't have to queue for the changing room - it happens often in Singapore. Like you, I'm very picky. Luckily, I don't need that many clothes. :)

    It's funny, I've always felt like I "belong" in America thanks to the novels I read - I mostly read American authors. Can't say if I've proved myself right or wrong at the moment...

    I hope you get to buy a little place in England someday. :)

    1. Awww thank you, Julie! I'm glad you liked reading it because I really enjoyed writing it! And thanks! I just elephants are the sweetest and the cutest! Ooh that's right, we have that in common. Oh, I've never heard of that channel. I'll definitely check it out now. Thank you! I'm always looking for good creepy clips!

      Trying on jeans are the worst! Like you, I'm okay with shirts, shoes, etc. but for some reason jeans are just annoying to try on. I'm trying to be like you and do with less as far as clothes. You've definitely been an influence with me trying to be more minimilistic!

      I'm sure you belong in America! I must feel like I belong in England because I read so many books set in England. Same with British movies! Maybe that's why we both feel that way. And thank you! That's so sweet of you to say! I hope it comes true one day too :)

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment! It made my day! <3 <3 <3

  8. Love these sorts of posts. I have to say I'm a paranormal fan too! I love everything to do with paranormal stuff, tarot cards, boards etc. I don't know how you live without coffee but I'll forgive you for that one ;)

    1. Thank you so much, Nyxie! I'm the exact same way! I got my first pack of tarot cards last year, but I have to admit I bought them mainly because they were Halloween themed, haha. I know, I wish I liked it!! But thank you for forgiving my taste buds. :)

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I appreciate it so much!! <3

  10. Wait, are we like the same person?! The only one I can't fully relate to is bananas because I absolutely love them! However I do think it's a little weird how people use them to make bread when they start to go black. I've also had a couple of paranormal experiences, but I think I would collapse if I were to ever end up face to face with a ghost. I really loved this post, it was such an interesting (and fun) read! One of my favourite things is to read "about me" or fact posts written by bloggers because I always fine it super interesting. Thanks for sharing this, and I hope that one day you'll get to befriend an elephant!

    1. Hi Steph! Haha, maybe we are secretly twins or somehow specially connected! And that's totally okay about bananas, because apparently I'm in the minority when it comes to not liking bananas. I'm sure whoever thought of old bananas in bread was also the person who thought of zucchinis in bread as well, haha. Ooh have you really?? I'm dying to know what they were now! Aw, thank you so much for saying that! I really love reading other bloggers "about me" or "get to know me tags" too, and this one was really fun to write, so I'm so happy you liked reading it! And thank you for saying that also! I need to make a vision board with elephants on it to make that a reality ;)

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting!! <3

    1. Hi Lauren! I love these posts too, so I'm so glad you liked my post! :) Elephants are amazing, aren't they?? And I'm so jealous that you live in England! Hopefully, one day I'll get to live there (I'm currently crossing my fingers, haha). Thank you so much for reading and your lovely comment!
