So, under the guidance wise and special best friend, Savannah, I've decided to write up a post about 20 interesting facts about me that MOST people wouldn't know!
Here we go...
(I'm regretting this decision already...so many regrets)
My nationality and background is as follows:
Laotian, Australian, German, Irish, and Scottish.
Whenever I tell people that I'm Laotian, most people can't even put it on a map or say, "Oooh! Lao....that's cool...really cool....what's a Laos?" so I've decided to include a map for you!
This. Is. Laos.
It's not a fictional place like Narnia (As some of you have politely suggested) but it's real, it's gorgeous, and I am Laotian so yes, for those who have also been asking, I am not Filipino.
Even though I may come across as short and sweet to some people, when you actually get to know me, it's a surprise to find that I'm actually a small ball of aggression and tall in sarcasm. All good signs though that I actually really like you and will continue to climb all of you and call you my, 'Giant steed'
I play video games AVIDLY. I used to enter competitions for Guitar Hero, and even won a few of them that I went to.
I trash talk to the max, and become savage whenever I play games like Mario Kart, Left 4 Dead, and Guitar Hero. Don't even put a controller near me if it is Halo, but I will slay. Slay for days.
I'm allergic of certain fruits!
It's not a killer allergy where, if I were to get anywhere near it, I'd have my throat close up and just die from the severity of it. My mouth simply gets rashes/blisters and it's incredibly itchy.
I'm allergic to avocado, mangoes, strawberries, bananas, watermelon, oranges, and probably others that I'm forgetting at this point now.
BUT! In saying that, I absolutely love strawberries dipped in chocolate with cream (It is my romantic and food weakness) so just because I'm allergic doesn't mean I'm not going to eat it. I have the will of a donkey and will eat it regardless.
I like to live life on the edge.
My favourite colours to wear (That bring our my eyes/complexion/my favourite colours ever) are royal blue and maroon red. My entire wardrobe is just those two colours and grey and black. That's it. Commitment to the max there.
I'm an introverted person (For those who don't what that means, it means that I feel energised when I'm alone (Or with close friends) doing activities that are quiet and let me think. When I'm around people at parties or social get-togethers, after a few hours I feel drained and just want to go to a quiet place to give myself time to think and relax. It does not mean that I am shy. I'm not a shy person, but I get drained when I'm around people for too long) which not many can guess about me because I can be quite social and outgoing when I decide to be (Or have to be)
(If you want to learn more, I can go on and on about this for hours, so just let me know ;) )
Now, this is just one that I'm taking from what other people have told me and their reactions, but I can sing! I don't do it very often in front of other people, because it's way too awkward for me, but when I do feel comfortable enough to do it around close friends and family, they always stop and remark that 'Wow you can actually sing!' or they invite me to do duets with them :P #Definitelynottootingmyownhorn
I actually really do enjoy rap music, when I can find some that don't include some kind of message about drugs/alcohol/sex/swearing. But when I do find them, man oh man, I will learn that rap and bust my rhymes out whenever I get into singing battles.
I'm a complete and utter hopeless romantic. I love reading about romances, I love watching romance, I (relation)ship everything and everyone. Ugh. I am in love with love :) It's such a beautiful feeling, and whenever I hear couple's share their story of how they met and knew they were the one for each other, I just swoon and die from the cuteness.
I am writing a book!
Of course it's not anything professional, just something I do as a hobby, but I've gotten MUCH further than I ever expected to have written. I don't tell many people because they always ask to see it, and that's just a big no-no to me :P #Perfectionism to the max.
In a rough summary, it's basically Post-Apocalyptic :P I've always loved Post-Apocalyptic movies, books, and even music that reminds me something that you'd imagine in a Post-Apocalyptic wasteland. I don't know if it's just the morbid side of me, but I really do wonder what humanity would do in that scenario.
I have a birthmark in the shape of an emo kid, looking sad, and with his hair drooping in front of his face on my left arm. You have to see it to believe it, because when a friend pointed it out to me, I couldn't stop laughing.
(Not many people know I actually have a birthmark, because I tend to wear a lot of sleeved shirts, so it's normally hidden)
It also changes colour according to whether I'm warm or not! It goes purple when I'm cold, and a reddish/pink when I'm either warm or too hot :P
I have social anxiety, which gets really hard to deal with whenever my friends are like, 'LET'S GO OUT AND SOCIALISE AND TALK TO LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE WITH NO ONE THAT YOU ACTUALLY KNOW BUT REMEMBER THEIR FACE AND THEY REMEMBER YOURS!' and I'm all...
'Yaaaaaay let's definitely not do that'
I LOVE op shopping. I hate shopping full price, as I'm always opting to go to op shops to walk out with arms full of books, clothes, and whatever else I can find.
I was raised on it, and it grew into a tradition with my parents to go every Saturday morning and just look for some amazing buys. Nearly all my dresses are from op shops ;) #Iwearyourgrandadsclothes #Ilookincredible
My greatest fears are: 1. Darkness. I CANNOT be locked or shut in by myself into a dark room. I'll start hyperventilating and freaking out. 2. Failure or not living up to my potential. It's the regrets that will kill me. 3. I'll never find someone who'll love me, but I think everyone has that fear to a point.
I've only ever had one boyfriend! My family did not like him *Laughs because they saw the truth before I did*
But they were nice, and put up with him because I adored his face and even graced him with the title of my boyfriend. Since then I've been on a solo voyage, enjoying the fact that I can eat as much as I want without having someone try to steal my food (I know this from experience because I AM THAT GIRLFRIEND, THE FOOD THIEF!)
I've been writing journals continuously since I was about 12, so I have an ENTIRE box full of all my journals that details all of my awkward and cringeworthy life. Majority of it is my past crushes (Ewuh), my past struggles (You have no reason to cry, Past-Me. I should be the one crying. You don't have responsibilities to even cry over!), and what I was doing that day (A bunch of nothing, normally. I'm practically half human, half sloth)
I can touch type between 120-130 WPM, due to my mum getting me to play games on the computer when I was a kid that were all about learning how to touch type and also to do them while racing for speed + accuracy. Don't combine my competitive nature with a game that is education for me, I will destroy it flawlessly AND learn something while doing it.
One of my eyebrows is weirdly shaped now because when I was a kid, my older brother (Michael) thought it'd be a great idea to grab a razor and shave a part of my eyebrow off, realised his mistake, and then proceeded to hide me up in his bedroom closet for hours, secretly feeding me food and water and a new book every few minutes (I think I was in there for like...an hour or two, possibly. In kid years I felt like I was in there for centuries) so that mum and dad wouldn't see that he just shaved off half of his little sister's eyebrow.
Thanks Mike, Thanks. Now my eyebrows will never be on #Fleek.
What are life goals anymore?
I only have four genres of favourite movies.
Period Classical Romances - Like Pride and Prejudice, Becoming Jane, Austenland.
Animated/Disney - Hercules, Mulan, Tangled
American Teen Comedies - 10 Things I Hate About You, Mean Girls, She's The Man.
Musical Comedy/Dramas - Into the Woods, Pitch Perfect, Moulin Rouge, and HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL WHATTEAMWILDCATS!!
Most people know this about me that I really don't like playing sports. I hate it, actually. I can handle watching it, as long as I can mark snarky comments and provide my own form of commentary (Look at them grab that ball! Oh no! Now the other team has the ball, but the opposing team has managed to grab that ball back and oh darn now the other team has it again. When will the madness ever end?)
But not many people know WHY I don't like playing sports, because I never really like to share it because they always laugh madly.
I hate playing sports because I'm directly in the height of the ball when it is kicked/thrown/batted/aimed for my face. Regardless of what sport I play, whether it be tennis or soccer or even just basketball, I always get hit somehow in the head or the face.
Every. Single. Time.
Without fail, it happens, and I hit a certain age after being hit in the face multiple times that I decided enough was enough and that I hated sports and it didn't need to be a part of my life except in the case of my friend's games or if I had a bf/husband who liked playing sports. That's all. I have the reflexes of a lethargic and lazy sloth. I don't need that type of negativity in my life. This face is a masterpiece, and it shouldn't be tarnished by being repeatedly smashed up by people's bad aim at a 4'11 figure.
(So people, stop asking me to play sports because I get Vietnam Sport Incident flashbacks of being concussed when I got hit in the head by a ball in dodgeball and had to be dragged off by my Dad. These aren't fun times to me)
