little quirks and such
> i am a few days sixteen.
> i have been a follower of Jesus since the age of eight.
> i have a dog (Sadie) and a kitten (Sheba).
> i adore reading (Marissa Meyer and Madeleine L’Engle are my favourite authors).
> my earbuds are just another appendage of mine, a part of me.
> i am likely either listening to TØP, ABBA, Switchfoot, Oasis, Eloise, some film/musical soundtrack, or a new artist from my Spotify recommended (typically rock— classic and alternative).
> i am decent at ukulele and learning guitar. my, i wish i could sing, though.
> i love the shows “Psych”, “Gilmore Girls”, “Full House”, “The Office”, + “Drake and Josh”.
> i have seen the movie “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” eighteen times.
> i hate the film “The Princess Bride”.
> i would much rather converse via paper letters than text/call/facetime/DM.
> i am a vegetarian (more about where the meat comes from than it simply being meat. commercial farming is... yikes.).
> it bothers me how many people say they are accepting of all, but if they meet someone who disagrees with an opinion of theirs, they “cancel” them. to love/accept and to agree are TWO SEPARATE THINGS (check out @zoe_christina ’s piece titled “yes,”)
>i am terrified of... well, most everything.
> i eat my Oreos by dropping them in a glass of milk and letting them sit ’til they’re all goopy and then i eat them with a spoon :p
> cold showers are better than hot showers, in my opinion.
> i really like windows.
> SOMEONE TELL ME WHY THE WORD “BEAN” IS SO FUNNY (but also, like, so cute)
> i am a hopeless romantic, only trapped within the body of a socially awkward scaredy-cat.
> i have a strange obsession with floating on my back in an empty pool.
> the stars never fail to steal my breath. they are so beautiful and endlessly fascinating.
> one of my favourite memories is shag-dancing in the summer rain.
> i DESPISE cliques/stereotypes/aesthetics (i.e. soft girls, e-girls, vsco girls, cottagecore, skater bois, jocks, etc. ---- OK, unless they are fictional. i mean, come on? peter kavinsky?!). you don’t have to fit some silly label! just be you, in your beautiful imperfection.
> i tend to speak a great deal, despite the fact that i hate the sound of my own voice and i rarely say things worth hearing. this is one of the reasons i adore writing: i can pick and polish every word, every letter, before anyone even catches a glimpse.
> i am an introvert, all the way; although, many people misunderstand the definition of introvert versus extrovert. by saying i am an introvert, i mean social interactions exhaust me and being alone is my time to recharge. plus, i just feel heaps more comfortable alone.
> i am PUMPED for season four of “Stranger Things.” anyone else?
> i lived in Africa for a year of my life.
> raspberries are my favourite fruit.
> i tend to get bored very quickly. sports, friends, hobbies. this makes me hesitant to date; i am afraid i will get bored and hurt their feelings.
> i am an enneagram four. not sure what wing... i will have to explore that further.
> i’m in Gryffindor (what’s a scaredy-cat like me doing in Gryffindor? ask the sorting hat.)
> i have been playing “Among Us” a ton lately, so if you ever want to play, PM me a code and you will make my week.
> i feel anxious almost all of the time. i need to see a therapist but, of course, that makes me very anxious.
> i don’t see myself getting married in the future.
> watching “Ocean’s 8” makes me want to be a con-woman.
> most people see me as soft, a goody-goody, and it makes me want to scream!!!1!!1
> tight clothes make me uncomfy.
> you guys are some of my favourite human beings on this planet.
> poetry makes up a great portion of my heart (surprise?).
> i say “dude” a lot.
> i wish i was funny.
> i am running out of things to say about myself.
