Hey there, bloggers!
It has been a long time since I’ve done an easy-breezy post in which I give you facts about myself. True, I did a lot of those early in my blogging career, but with my blog taking off since then, I’ve been putting out other stuff (poetry, traveling, music, random thoughts) that I am passionate about. ❤
However, this is not to say that I don’t like taking a step back and doing these “get-to-know-me” posts. In fact, I love them, and sometimes I even go to other blogger’s facts post to learn more about them (not stalking you, I swear…). 😛 I guess you could say that there’s still that small, list-loving teenager hidden inside of me (heck, I still love lists!).
Inspired by A Splash of Mimosa’s post, I have decided to take part in this “facts-about-me” survey, categorized in lists of five items, from my five favorite foods to the five places I want to visit in the future. Really neat thing to pass the time with, am I right?
So, here you go: get to know me more! Feel free to do this survey yourself, but make sure to link it back to me and to A Splash of Mimosa (whom I got this from) when you’re done. Enjoy, m’dears! 🙂
1. Five places I’m dying to visit
Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines)
New Orleans, Louisiana (U.S.)
2. Five foods I eat every day
green vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, some Chinese vegetable I don’t know the name of in English)
some type of meat (chicken or pork)
*NOTE: these are foods that I eat in the U.S. When I was living in France, I ate different foods. But since I’m back home, I list these dishes here.
3. Five talents I wish I had
Charm. To get away with things and make people love me #goals. 😉
Learn languages easily. You can say that I “know” three languages, but I’m only fluent in one of them; to be able to learn languages facilely and to be fluent in them would be a dream.
Make perfect macarons. Trust me; I’ve tried. And tried. Never worked!
Gaydar (or lesbian gaydar). It’s hard for me to know if my crush is gay or not; it’s hard enough to tell if he/she even likes me! Might as well expand this to having a “lovedar…” 😛
Play piano by ear. I am so incredibly jealous of those pianists who can learn pieces without reading music! I’m a traditionalist, having been trained to sight read as a kid. Imagine how many different songs I can play if I learned by ear!
*unfortunately, I don’t follow that many food blogs, but here’s the best that I got!
5. Five Instagram accounts I love
penguin (noticing a lot of “P” accounts here…)
davidmuirabc (and lots of “Davids,” I assume?!)
6. Five things I wear almost every day
Exercise shorts (at home)
Glasses (I’m blind as a bat) 😛
Hair-tie (My hair is difficult to tame, so I solve the problem that way!)
7. Five songs I listen to on repeat (currently)
Troye Sivan- Youth
One Direction- Perfect
Jason Derulo- Marry Me & Trade Hearts
Talyor Swift- How You Get the Girl
8. Five beauty products I use every day (wouldn’t say they’re beauty products, but still things I put on myself nonetheless)
acne cream (how attractive…)
sunscreen (when I go outside)
concealer (if I have blemishes and am trying to impress someone)
9. Five movies I can watch on repeat
I Can’t Think Straight
10. Five books on my current reading list
La fête clandestine- Rachid Chebli
Elena Undone- Nicole Conn
Kiffe kiffe demain- Faiza Guène
The Metamorphosis- Franz Kafka
Lolita- Vladimir Nabokov
11. Five random things I ate yesterday
a Stroopwafel (if you don’t know what it is, then you’re missing out!)
Korean fried chicken
KFC fried chicken (yes, lots of fried chicken!)
Ranier cherries (one of my favorite fruits)
That’s it for me! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, bloggers. 🙂
