The Get to Know Me Tag

14 Mar 2016


Hi, Friends! Happy Daylights Saving Time! It's weird that losing just one hour of sleep feels like I've lost twelve even two days later. I was reading through different lists of blog post suggestions for some inspiration and I came across this "little" tag called the get to know me tag that sounded really fun! It's been awhile since I've introduced myself, so I figured I would take the time again to show you just how weird I am. (ps- I laughed really hard at that picture so I felt like I had to include it)
1. Are you named after someone?
When my mom was pregnant with my twin sister and me, the doctor had told her that she was expecting twin boys, but shocker... we weren't! This left my mother scrambling for names so I believe she just chose our first names out of a book by whatever sounded the best. BUT my middle name is Dawn is after my grandfather (Donald) who passed away four years ago I really like that!
2. When was the last time you cried?
I was lacking sleep this morning when I heard that my school's education department didn't get the letter somebody had written for me three weeks ago. So between trying to track that down and having my computer cord decide to rebel and break, I've been having a rough go. My boyfriend saved the day and we got a new one plus we ended up buying a really nice comforter for our bed so I'm in a much happier mood now. (Plus, it's almost bedtime and that's my favorite time of the day)
3. Do you have kids?
I personally do not yet because I'm only 21, but I hope that someday I will be able to have them!
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
This is tough! I'm really introverted and around strangers so I think that it would take a little convincing, but I think I would because I'm pretty awesome when you get to know me. Well, maybe not but a girl can hope
5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Does eating endless bags of Lay's Dill Pickle chips count? because I really love those. They are so bad but so good.
6. Do you like handwriting?
I guess so! Some writing is really hard to read but I like my own.
7. What is your favourite cereal?
I should have added this in the guilty pleasure question because Fruit Loops are my weakness. I don't even eat them with milk, just by the bowl. I also really like Cheerios and Vanilla Rice Krispies!

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Usually, a person's smile or eyes because you can tell a lot about somebodies personality based on that.  I also notice height because I'm only 4'11 and most people tower over me.

9. What color are your eyes?
They are a greenish/hazel color depending on what color I'm wearing or what eye makeup I have on. One has a little speck of gold and the other one doesn't so at the very least, they are unique.
10. Scary movies or happy endings?
I am the biggest wimp ever, period. Sometimes Supernatural and Criminal Minds episodes get too intense for me so I'm a happy endings girl all the way. One of my favorite movies is The Notebook but is happy and sad at the same time.
11. Favorite TV show?
Right now I'm loving Supernatural and The Last Man on Earth! I also really love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Grace and Frankie. Full House has been my favorite show for awhile so I've been slowly watching Fuller House too which has been really odd but so good! I recommend it if you're bored or looking for something nostalgic.


12. Summer or winter?
Going back to the notion of being the biggest wimp, I also cannot stand anything below 0 degrees. This probably sounds stupid considering I live in Canada where winter is 70% of the weather... I'm joking about that but I feel like that's all we have some days. Now that spring is here it's slowly warming back but I cannot wait for the warm sunny days where I can walk around without the salt ruining my shoes and my hands going numb.
13. Hugs or kisses?
I like both depending on who they come from! But if you're a stranger, I will run in the opposite direction faster than you can say "Hello". 
14. What’s the further you’ve been away from home?
I haven't done much traveling so the furthest away from home that I've been is within the Maritimes. Someday I hope to get out and explore, though! My boyfriend promises to take me to Scotland for our honeymoon if we get married so I might take him up on that ;) 
15. Do you have special talents?
I'm going to consider singing a special talent because I've taken voice lessons for many years but I haven't sung in public in a while. I should also count being extremely clumsy and forgetful as talents because it takes serious skills to pull off some of the stuff I have done by accident.
16. Where were you born?
I was born in a small town called Sydney in Nova Scotia but I haven't lived there in years so don't go looking for me there.
17. What are your hobbies?
Taking naps, being crafty, blogging, hoarding cats, crying over cute puppies, collecting makeup, taking more naps... Should I go on?

18. Do you have any pets?
Oh boy! Do I ever. At my home, we have three cats and three dogs. Before you think we are some crazy family (We are but that's another story), only one of the dogs and two of the cats belong to us because my grandmother also lives with us in an in-law suite. I've mentioned my dog Rhiley before in a favorites post and Carrie Kitty has never been mentioned but she is my baby.
19. Favorite movie?
My favorites are The Notebook, The Fault in Our Stars, Grease and anything Disney that isn't Tangled or The Princess and the Frog.
20.What color is your car?
Oops.. I don't own one because I lack a driving license. I also think that I'll drive like I do in Grand Theft Auto so I've stayed away.
21. What did you want to be when you grow up?
I've always wanted to be a veterinarian but I quickly let go of that dream when I realized how much schooling it would take. I also suck at anything math or science related so my grades weren't good enough. That being said, I always liked being a teacher so I still have hopes that I'll become one and applied to an elementary program at the school I currently attend! I also would love to be a social worker so I applied for a program as well and I'm still playing the waiting game for results.

Holy crap! Are you still with me? Do you need refreshments? I didn't realize just how many questions I had written down until I tried to answer them all so kudos if you get through all of my ramblings! I'm going to tag Rowan from Sincerely, Rowan as well as anybody else who feels like writing a little bit about themselves! (It's really fun, I promise!)

With love,
