Back in 2017, a little bit after I first started this blogging thing, I made 52 things about me list. Reading it back I realized that some things were still very true, but it deserved an update anyhow. I also don’t think 52 things were all that necessary, so this time I narrowed it down to 27. I tried to stay away from simple questions like favorite foods and holidays; things like that, but a couple easy ones slipped in. Also, I’m a vegetarian, and live a cruelty-free life as much as possible, these are things my blog explains pretty clearly so I skipped these things as well.
Let us jump in.
I have recently become obsessed with buying make-up, yet I still have no idea what I’m doing. I’ll figure it out one day.
I have a plethora of books on my To Be Read pile, yet I cannot stop buying them.
I can watch re-runs of a lot of shows, but none more than NCIS LA, Golden Girls, Everybody Loves Raymond.
Star Wars, Supernatural, Harry Potter and Marvel are my ultimate fandoms, although I have many more.
I sleep best when it’s chilly, and I have a cozy blanket.
I prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate, non-dairy, of course, and Oreo is my favorite.
I have chapstick on me at all times.
Sunflowers are my favorite, followed by daisies.
I’m obsessed with combat boots and flannels
I have an odd fascination with birds, which I think stems from always watching them as a kid with my Nana.
I truly believe in the vibes people give off. I know what my first impression of someone is by how I feel around them. I’ve never been wrong.
Chips and Queso are my absolute weakness.
Meredith Grey, from Greys Anatomy, is my spirit animal
I am truly a better person when the weather is warmer, spring/fall kind of warmth. If it’s humid, forget it.
My taste in music stretches far across genres. From Dolly Parton to Lizzo to George Strait, to Eminem, to Taylor Swift, to A day to remember, to state champs, to Demi Lovato to Maren Morris. If there is a good message and a good sound, I’m here of it.
I will always take salty over sweet, but Swedish fish, Andes, and Recess are my favorite candies.
I’m a junior in college, and while I have a major, I’m still unsure of exactly what I want to do, and it’s terrifying me.
Sara Lance is my favorite DCTV character with Felicity Smoak as a close second.
The ocean is still my happy place, with camping right up there as well.
Vodka used to be my ultimate drink of choice, but now Tequilla is my drink of choice.
I hate cleaning. But when I have to, and I get into a zone, I clean everything at once.
I love movies, but I cannot do scary movies. No matter how good it might look, or how stacked the cast.
I am terrified of clowns, heights, and snakes. And I’m pretty sure I always will be.
My Grandpa was my favorite person, and his death still gets to me even five years later.
I am a cheap person. $25 for a t-shirt? I think not. Yet I also love fashion.
I credit Jared Padalecki with saving my life in terms of confronting, learning, and understanding my mental health. I have anxiety, and I don’t know if I ever would have figured myself out if he hadn’t been honest and open about his struggle.
I’ve always been in love with the process of movies and TV. Directing, writing, acting, cinematography, wardrobe, stunts, all of it.
I have had this blog for over three years now, and I’m still trying to figure it out. I feel like that’s how I’m handling lots of things. I’m just figuring it out. Things change a lot, what I’m into, what I’m feeling, how I deal with things, what I think I want vs. what I need. If nothing else, I am an ever-growing person. If you want to see what I mean, you can read my 52 things about me list from 2017—-> https://missraee.wordpress.com/2017/09/20/oh-you-didnt-know/ and see what stuck out about me then, vs. what stuck out about me today, because in both lists I wrote what came to mind.
Until the next time that I feel like sharing some more nonsense,
