Hi readers! Today on the blog, I am doing the 15 WEIRD QUESTIONS TAG as part of The Get Up Offa That Slump Blogging Extravaganza!
Here’s a description of the extravaganza from the words of the creator, Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf!
Get Up Offa That Slump: A Blogging Extravaganza is a blogging “challenge” of sorts. There’s really only one goal: to just post something. And the idea isn’t for this to be some outline and pattern of memes and reviews and that’s it. It’s to show you all the things (just a few of the things) you can post on your blog and still keep it bookish. (Because we’re all here for books, right?) And, in short, the focus is on having fun, because if we’re not having fun blogging feels like a job or homework and, well, that’s no fun, right?
This amazing project lasts three weeks with different post options every other day! Sound fun? It’s not too late to join! Anyways, on with the tag!
1. A nickname that you get called
The nickname that my family and close friends call me is Dee. ONLY FAMILY AND CLOSE FRIENDS. If the wrong person calls me Dee, it makes me super uncomfortable. I always prefer Deanna when it comes to blogging stuff and social media!
2. A weird habit
I’m really OC about my napkins. I KNOW, IT’S WEIRD. They have to be folded PERFECTLY, or else I can’t use it. My parents always roll their eyes at me when I unfold the napkins they lay out at dinner and fold them my way, but I JUST CAN’T TAKE IT IF THE FOLDING ISN’T EVEN!
3. A weird phobia
This is actually more sad than weird when I think about it! When I was in middle school, I had a really bad phobia of being kidnapped. Not just a fear, a legitimate phobia. It pretty much dominated my life. I was constantly frantically searching the room and I slept with a nightlight until I was 14. I went to therapy for it and everything! I’m all good now, don’t worry.
4. A song you are ashamed to like so you blast it in private
The Potential Breakup Song by Aly & AJ. I’m not even ashamed to like this song. IT TOOK TOO LONG IT TOOK TO LONG IT TOOK TOO LONG FOR YOU TO CALL BACK AND NORMALLY I WOULD JUST FORGET THAT EXCEPT FOR THE FACT IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY MY STUPID BIRTHDAY
5. A pet peeve
When people call a musical a play. IT’S STUPID AND PETTY BUT IT BUGS ME! Someone will say something like “Hamilton is my favorite play!” AND IT MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM.
6. A nervous habit
When I’m out walking or something, I’m constantly pulling up my socks. I just have this eternal feeling of my socks falling down!
7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The left side. I have a super weird ritual when it comes to sides of the bed. I’m not gonna go into it, but believe me–it’s weird.
8. The name of your first stuffed animal
I got a scratchy, pink bear when I was two years old. Being two years old, I named it Pinky. I’m not ashamed at all to say I still sleep with Pinky at almost 16 years old! I like holding on to something while I sleep and that stuffed animal makes me happy and warm. Forever the actress and writer, I used to act out scenes with my stuffed animals. I was Pinky’s mom and she was married to my stuffed penguin.
9. What do you buy at Starbucks?
It depends! If I’m hanging out with my friends and we decide we want Starbucks, I’ll get a frappucino, usually vanilla bean with caramel and chocolate syrup. If it’s really cold outside or I need caffeine, I’ll get a chai latte!
10. Beauty rule
Strong eyebrows make a look!
11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I don’t understand this question! I face the shower head…how else would I stand?
12. A weird body skill
My toes are like fingers! I can spread my toes and pick up things like I can with my fingers! My dad calls it my “monkey feet” and it freaks out people when I show them!
13. Comfort food
MAC AND CHEESE ALL THE WAY. I LOVE MAC AND CHEESE. Whenever I introduce myself in a Twitter chat, I mention my passion for mac and cheese. I’m pretty sure it’s in my Twitter bio, too.
14. A word or phrase that you say all the time
I honestly have no idea! If you know me well and can think of one, let me know!
15. What do you sleep in?
In the winter, pajama pants and a t-shirt. In the summer, pajama shorts and a t-shirt.
I hope you enjoyed learning 15 random things about me! I tag YOU!
