Twenty Fun Facts About Yours Truly


Sweets are my Achilles heel!

If there’s one thing I hate most, it’s writing about myself. Seriously. As embarrassing as this may sound to some, I usually hit a massive blank wall when it comes to sharing a few things about me. You would think that writing about who I am would be the easiest task to do given that I’ve hung out with myself since birth, but nope. Instead, I just have a staring contest with my computer. As a matter of fact, it took eons for me to come up with my first sentence when drafting my About Me page for this blog. Yet, because I want to get better acquainted with you all, I thought it would be best to just list some fun facts about me. On with the show! 

  1. The hobby I could never give up is, of course, reading and writing. I know this doesn’t come as a surprise. 
  2. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched Gladiator. It’s literally one of my all-time favorite films. Who could ever forget that famous line? “Are you not entertained?” An absolute classic!
  3. My alcoholic drink of choice is strawberry mojito. Delicious!
  4. I mostly listen to movie scores. I don’t know why, but the music not only moves you, but it also tells its own story as well. I definitely recommend listening to Let Them Up by Junkie XL from the motion picture Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s really moving.
  5. I am lactose intolerant. Though I was never diagnosed by a doctor, my body has made it clear that it would be best to avoid all dairy products. But I don’t. 
  6. My name in Greek means wisdom. I plan on getting a tattoo of an owl but I’m not sure if I’m ready for the pain. 
  7. Sweets are my Achilles heel. I love Oreos, Reese Buttercup, Chocolate and Churros, Tres Leches, and so much more! 
  8. I spend far too much money on books. We don’t need to go into details with this one. 
  9. If I could live in any era of history, it would have to be the Revolutionary era (1775–1783) because that’s when we took a stand against the world’s greatest empire at the time and said “enough”! Our founding fathers embarked on a dangerous quest for equal representation and they pushed forward regardless of the consequences. Of course, I would want to live in that era as a white woman. 
  10. The thing I love most about me is my ability to forgive people no matter how bad they’ve hurt me. I am somewhat a passive person. 
  11. If I could live anywhere in the world it would be London. I just love the history, the culture, and not to mention the accent. 
  12. I hate anything horror/thriller. If it’s scary, you can have it. If it’s demonic, I will throw my Bible at you and run. It’s that simple. 
  13. I have never been to Disney. I still don’t understand why I haven’t since I live in Florida. Yeah, maybe next year I’ll go. 
  14. I suffer from trypophobia. I can’t even begin to describe what that is without making my skin crawl. Google it. 
  15. I am a very friendly and awkward person. I don’t know, I love meeting new people, but then I would ruin that first impression by trying to be funny. 
  16. I hate both the taste and smell of mint. I can tolerate minty toothpaste, but that’s about it. 
  17. My favorite season is fall. Though I live in a state that only has one season, I can still feel a slight change in the weather during the fall. 
  18. I consider myself an undercover history aficionado. I plan on sharing some history-related content soon.   
  19. I suffer from depression. Again, I haven’t been diagnosed with depression, but the symptoms are there. I have to constantly work around the clock to keep my mind from slipping into that dark place in my head where the thoughts of hurting myself fatally are always lurking.  
  20. My favorite music composer is Hans Zimmer! — Need I say more?

I hope you guys were able to get a feel of who I am. If there’s something you would like to know about me, just shoot me a question in the comments section!
