Hello beautiful people! Today on the blog I wanted to do something a little different and more personal for this blog post. I wanted to share with you all 15 random thoughts and facts that came to me one evening. To be honest, I love reading these blog posts from some of my favorite bloggers and hope that you enjoy this post as well!
1.) I’ve shaved my head twice to donate my hair to cancer patients. The first time was for my senior project where I organized an entire hair drive at my high school and got people to donate their hair to the cause. The second time was because I had dyed my hair such a bright red color that it was starting to really damage my hair so I decided to start over.
2.) I’ve traveled all over the world…I think I am at 50 countries now, but I am working on a specific post that lists all of my travels. My dad was a military soldier, and we moved all over the world for his work as well as for pleasure.
3.) I hate snakes and insects. To be honest, they are just creepy and nasty to look at so I rather not to see them!
4.) I’ve dyed my hair a few times, including a red Mohawk, red afro, and a blue afro. Let’s just say after I shaved my head the first time I took the chance to experiment with different hairstyles and haircuts.
5.) I hate roller coasters and theme parks. I guess it’s about being scared of the thrill or the height, but I’m not a fan of either of them. I would rather just stay on the ground.
6.) I used to dance hip-hop all the time when I was younger. Think of a mini Chris Brown or Ciara. At all of the middle school dance or the youth club dances, I was the main star when my favorite song came on. You couldn’t tell me anything!
7.) My favorite sport is soccer. When I was smaller, I used to play all the time in my backyard. Then when I got to high school, I was a part of the Junior Varsity and Varsity Women’s soccer team and actually did pretty well.
8.) My favorite animal is a white tiger. Since I’m mixed with black and white, I feel like the white tiger represents the exact feeling I had about being biracial and not looking like everyone else in my class.
9.) I knew I wanted to go into pharmacy since I was in high school (2014). My high school had a program that allowed me to become a certified pharmacy technician right out of school, so there’s where I knew.
10.) I used to want to be an oceanographer. I still love the ocean, but I feel like there wasn’t a lot of job options to be an oceanographer and that it was a dying field, which is super sad! We have to protect the oceans and the lands that we were given so kindly.
11.) My favorite food is chicken and cheese…yes together! If you’ve never tried a Chick-fil-a chicken sandwich with cheese, then you need to NOW! It’s so good.
12.) I took piano lessons for a few years when I was younger. I swear my parents wanted me to be Alicia Keys and become a stellar piano player. I did enjoy playing the piano, but I didn’t like the practice time and the quiet time to really focus on the craft.
13.) I used to always have braids in my hair until I got into high school. Then I started to learn how to take control of my hair and have fun with haircuts. Imagine a mini Alicia Keys at the beginning of her career, that was in my throughout elementary school all the way to the end of middle school. My braids were always poppin’ though!
14.) I didn’t start learning to drive until my senior year in high school. For most of high school, I was living in Germany on a military base, and there wasn’t a real good reason for me to learn how to drive. The driving laws aren’t the same in Germany as they are in America. So I didn’t learn to drive until I came back to live in the United States again.
15.) I tried to become a lifeguard, but I couldn’t pass the last test for the qualifications. The last test that I couldn’t pass was the one that they dropped a brick into the deep end. You have to then get the brick from the bottom and carry to the shallow end above the water’s surface.
I hoped that you enjoyed getting to know me better in this post! What is one fun fact about yourself that nobody knows?
