50 Random Facts


Hi everyone! As I've seen this tag popping up around everywhere, I thought I'd try my hand at it as well. It's pretty self-explanatory, so here's 50 random facts about me!


1. I'm going into my first year of university next year - no idea where I'll be yet!
2. I love Diet Coke. It's really quite bad... a slight obsession.
3. I'm a cat and dog person. I've grown up with both.
4. I've been able to go to Disney World countless times and it has never lost it's magic. The fact that I have little sisters only means I have the excuse to still go at age 17!
5. I've always wanted to go to California - I even applied to a university out there!
6. I've only been out of the country one time - Canada.
7. My favorite fruits are red apples and purple grapes.
8. I started watching YouTube videos in 2006 (I was only 11!) . The first videos I watched were "Shoes" and Shane Dawson.. I used to hide the videos from my parents because I thought they were bad with all of the swears!
9. I'm addicted to my iPhone, I'm literally never without it.
10. Favorite books include: A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Kite Runner, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Vanity Fair, and so many more!
11. I love any and all music. Hip hop, rap, indie, country, pop, electronic, oldies, classical, rock, etc.
12. I adore the French language and culture. I've been learning the language in school for 4 years now!
13. Favorite shows include: Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, Modern Family, The Middle, New Girl, Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, VEEP, Dance Moms, and more.
14. If I had to choose one continent I'd love to travel, it would be Africa, hands down. I want to travel all over, from south to north and east to west!
15. I'm going to London in July!! I'm beyond excited, I can't even put it into words!
16. I have two little sisters, who are 8 and 10 years old!
17. My kitten's name is Brady, after the New England Patriot's Football quarterback (Tom Brady).
18. When I have spare time, I love to sketch.
19. During the summer, I love going into Boston with friends.
20. When I was younger, I was petrified of going on trains after a stranger had tried to talk to me and I freaked out.
21. I hate potato chips. Never liked them!
22. I dream of working in New York City, London, or Los Angeles.
23. I'm very excited to own my own house or appartment one day so I can decorate it exactly as I'd like.
24. My lucky number is 11.
25. I've dealt with anxiety since I even knew what it was when I was a little girl, so it's been nice to read and learn from so many other bloggers and YouTubers who I admire talk about it and share tips on dealing with it!
26. I have more than a slight obsession with nail polish. I'd hate to count just how many I have as it's far too many for one person to need.
27. I always try really hard to save my money, but it never lasts too long.
28. I'm taking the most advanced level classes in my entire school - you could definitely classify me as an over-achiever.
29. I don't think I've ever loved a pair of shoes as much as I love my Hunter boots and my prom heels from last year.
30. I usually don't eat breakfast, but lately I've been making myself eat an apple so I start my day with something.
31. I get sick a lot - I have a very weak immune system!
32. My favorite colors are pink and green.
33. My favorite drugstore is my local CVS and Target. No other CVS compares to mine!
34. I hate getting my hair cut, I avoid it like the plague!
35. I used to read a lot when I was younger, and I'm trying to get myself back to that habit now.
36. When I was younger, I was obsessed with the Lizzie McGuire show and Hilary Duff - I even met her in person in New York City!
37. My main goal in life is to make a difference in the world. A bit bold, a bit of a reach, but I want to make a difference. I love volunteering and helping others, so this definitely stems from my community service.
38. One of my all-time idols is Audrey Hepburn.
39. Even though I don't always eat breakfast, I love a good breakfast for dinner. Eggs, pancakes, waffles... best food!
40. My laptop is pink!
41. I don't like cold water - I always keep water bottles in my room so they'll be room temperature.
42. On Sundays, I do not like to get out of my pajamas. Of course, sometimes I'll be really productive and run errands, but for the most part I like to stay put.
43. I actually run a little charity shop! I sell nail polishes over on Etsy, which you can check out here.
44. I am a cookie monster. If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life, it would be a chocolate chip cookie.
45. I have been a vegetarian for 3 years this week!
46. I truly don't think that nothing can beat a bowl of Kraft Mac and Cheese.
47. In the autumn, I love watching football, college and professional.
48. I absolutely love television and movies - however, I'm always really bad at remembering to watch television shows. Netflix is a lifesaver!
49. I first started wearing makeup in 6th grade. Eyeliner was definitely what I loved and I completely over plucked my eyebrows. I cringe when I see old pictures! 
50. In the summer, I live in flip flops. I'm partially convinced that I have a weird spacing in between my toes because of how much I've worn flip flops in my life. 

And that's it! I hope you learned a few interesting facts about me that maybe you didn't know before. I'll see you all in a few days with a new post!
