Twenty Six Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

Twenty Six Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me | A Girl & Grey | @agirlandgrey

It’s my 26th birthday today and since there are waaaay more of you here than there were this time last year, I thought I’d take the time to reintroduce myself. 

I’ll admit – it feels crazy indulgent to write a post that focuses only on myself, but I love learning more about other people, and so I hope you do too.

Hopefully after reading this post you’ll understand the writer behind this blog a little more, and who knows? We may have a few things in common! Make sure to let me know if we do by leaving me a comment down below. I can’t wait to read your responses!

  1. I’m a total introvert, but sometimes I wish I wasn’t. 
  2. I’m right handed. 
  3. I have a habit of always being late because I hate being early. 
  4. The first thing I learnt how to cook was spaghetti, and then fried eggs, and then pancakes.
  5. I call my pets really weird nicknames, like chicken muffin and pudding bear. 
  6. I used to have my lip pierced. 
  7. I’d rather eat fries over chocolate. 
  8. My favourite movie of all time is probably Hot Rod, however I only watch it once or twice a year – and only if I’m having a really bad day. 
  9. I’ve wanted to visit Africa ever since I was really young, and I even had an African themed bedroom in my teens. 
  10. I’m terrified of deep water and falling from a height. 
  11. I’m low key addicted to Diet Coke. 
  12. I hate painting my nails myself, but I love having painted nails. 
  13. I have a bad habit of always touching my face. 
  14. My family will tell you that I’m a really good cook, however I’d much rather eat food that someone else has made. 
  15. My zodiac sign is Saggitarius, which means I’m fiercely independent and need to feel completely free at all times. 
  16. My favourite order at Starbucks is either an iced matcha latte or a mango iced tea. 
  17. Blueberries are my favourite fruit.
  18. I already have my dream home planned out in my head.
  19. My ideal meal is a burger and fries with lots of different dipping sauces. Alongside a Diet Coke, of course. 
  20. I don’t like to wear much colour, and I prefer a neutral interior design, too. 
  21. I used to skip school a lot in high school because of my anxiety, which is something I only realised later in life as I came to understand my mental health better. I skipped 75% of my classes at university, too, but still got Distinctions and High Distinctions.
  22. I don’t believe in staying in relationships with people if they’re toxic, even if that involves cutting out family and friends from my life. I’m estranged from a large percentage of my family because the relationships we had together were extremely negative and toxic.
  23. I want to foster cats one day.
  24. I don’t believe in God, but I sometimes wish that I did because it would make the concept of death a little easier. I do sometimes believe that peoples {and animals} spirits still stay here in some form, because I think that’s more comforting than believing that there is nothing after you die. After we had our dog Jess put down, I could swear that I felt her laying beside me some mornings when I woke up. 
  25. I own over thirty mugs. 
  26. My favourite flavour of cake is vanilla with super vanillary buttercream and lots{!!} of sprinkles, however I’ll eat anything with caramel, chocolate and butterscotch flavours.

      I totally agree – I wonder why it gets worse as we get older?

    Happy Birthday! 😀
    Good to get to know you a little better. There are many introverts here on WP – myself included – but not as bad as you were.
    I’ll take chocolate over fries any day. And I’m sure you’ll get to foster cats one day. 🙂
