I got tagged by Emma from It's Emma Elise yesterday for a "20 facts about me" tag and I haven't done one in awhile, so I figured...why not? It's a new week and a new day and laying in bed writing about my quirks and oddities on a Monday morning doesn't sound like such a bad idea. :)
So, here we go.
// I dressed up as Bellatrix for my Halloween costume at my job last year.
// I dressed up as Harley Quinn for my Halloween costume at my job this year!
// If I could (safely) have a candle burning in my room at all times so I could come home to a fantastic smelling room, I absolutely would. I love candles.
// I like to buy real books still. I have a Kindle, but I almost never use it. I'd much rather have the fragile pages in my hands.
// I have a lava lamp on my desk because I'm stuck in the 90s and my childhood like that.
// I used to hate the color pink. hate it. But now I kind of love it, depending on the shade.
// If my room is clean, I'm in SO MUCH BETTER of a mood.
// I love the popcorn that my roommate makes. Butter and garlic and pepper and spices galore. Yummy.
// I use Mean Girls, Bride Wars, or America's Next Top Model as background noise when I'm trying to be productive.
// If I ever get to where I can live off of what I make from my blog, I'm going to use it to meet people across the nation (and hopefully the world!). I love meeting new people from new places.
// I love my job right now, minus the late hours before class mornings. I love being a bartender and I love the girls I work with.
// I've been listening to Taylor Swift's 1989 on repeat since it came out and my best friend bought it for my birthday. Red was/is my college life's anthem, but 1989 is just as fabulous in a different way.
// I don't like going to class in pajamas or in an oversized shirt and shorts. I don't know if it's the same in the north, but down here, that's generally how girls dress across campus. I just like to look put together. It makes me feel better and if I feel better, my days and decisions will go better.
// I don't wear heels that much, but only because I don't really have places to do so. If I did, I would wear ALL THE HEELS ALL THE TIME. Because I love them. :)
// Real fashion bloggers make me so lovingly envious. I love following fashion blogs for inspiration for what I wear regularly. I generally check Instagram every morning when I wake up and every night right before I go to sleep.
// I'm really cheap when it comes to most things, but then there are also times where I'll make impulse buys like nobody's business. For example, I bought a television last week. My cat finished breaking my already kind of broken down tv while I was in Chicago, so I woke up one morning a week or so after and already had it in my mind that I was going to buy it. I've also impulsively bought a typewriter (among other things).
// I definitely don't consider myself a "writer" even though I do write this blog and keep journals on a pretty regular basis. I love to write, but I wouldn't say I'm a writer.
// I really hate being too hot. I would rather it be cold year round than deal with Southern heat waves and the amount of heat blasting out of my classroom's heaters right now. It is so hot in my building sometimes that I could actually pass out onto the floor. Yeesh.
// I have a lot of Scotland, Harry Potter, and Supernatural related items in my bedroom and the rest of my house. I don't have like one huge collection, but if you're observant...you'll see my happy obsessiveness with these three things.
// More than anything today, I just wish it would storm. I miss storms.
20 facts is kind of hard to come up with. 20 people to tag is also difficult to do. So in that case, I'm going to tag 10 instead! ;) Hope to read your own facts soon, ladies!
