25 Facts About Me

Seeing as I have some new followers, I thought now would be a really good time to tell you guys a little bit about me, aside from the obvious. You know like, “I like books,” and “I have a blog.” So here are a few more personal tid-bits and things to know about me.

1.) My favorite TV shows are Doctor Who, Sherlock, Parks & Recreation, The Walking Dead, and Jane the Virgin.

2.) I love candles.

3.) I currently live in Hawaii and love it.

4.) I’m a newlywed Army wife.

5.) I have two cats, Rowena and Ruby, and a guinea pig named Dwight.

6.) My favorite snacks are Chester’s Flamin’ Hot Fries and edamame.

7.) I was born in South Carolina, but I consider Texas my home.

8.) I didn’t date anyone before my husband; he was my first date, boyfriend, kiss, everything.

9.) Some of my favorite movies are Treasure Planet, Atlantis, Pitch Perfect, How to Train Your Dragon, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

10.) My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

11.) I’ve taken the Pottermore House test twice and got two different results: Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. So I’m a Ravenpuff.

12.) I’m a coffee person. I wish I liked tea but I don’t. I guess it’s an acquired taste.

13.) I have one sibling, a younger brother named Sawyer.

14.) Fuzzy blankets and other comfy things are my favorite.

15.) My favorite soda is Dr. Pepper.

16.) I don’t celebrate Halloween; my family has had a tradition for years of blocking off all the doors and windows and hiding in the very back of the house with a movie and some junk food so that trick-or-treaters won’t know we’re home. Surprisingly, this is probably the only tradition that my family has, and it’s for a holiday we don’t even celebrate. My husband and I intend to carry it on this year.

17.) ^ Actually, we have one other tradition: we open presents on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas morning. We’ve done this ever since I can remember and it used to make all our friends jealous.

18.) I used to have an imaginary friend; he was a mouse named Mousey, and he lived in the car vent.

19.) Some of my favorite artists/groups are Mumford & Sons, Twenty One Pilots, Taylor Swift, Owl City, and Imagine Dragons.

20.) I let someone borrow my copy of The Princess Bride a long time ago and I’m still bitter that they haven’t returned it.

21.) My perfect day is rainy, curled up in bed under warm blankets, cuddling with my husband, reading a good book or watching a good movie, eating pasta and ice cream.

22.) I don’t hate Twilight.

23.) When I was little, I was obsessed with Anastasia Romanov and I watched the movie all the time. I used to think that I was related to her and Anastasia was my great grandmother or something. As I got older, I did tons of research on her and did papers and reports about her, her life, and theories about her death. To this day I still think that the topic of Anastasia and conspiracy theories about her are incredibly interesting.

24.) I like to bake, but only during the fall and winter seasons, when it’s cold outside.

25.) I’m a pretty fun, outgoing person, but I’m also awkward and it might take me a while to warm up to you. If people give me the chance though, they typically find that I’m entertaining and they keep me around.

And there you have it! I’m a typical fangirl/geek and I like books. And I have a blog. The end.
