24 Things you might not know about me


I am turning 24 on the 25th (next year I will turn 25 on the 25th so that is going to be AWESOME). Twenty-four is not such an impressive age to be. It is between somewhere and nowhere and feels somewhat insignificant when you realize that you will be at your quarter life crisis in a year’s time (NOTE: I fully plan to have a quarter life crisis. Will get a tattoo and dye my hair some silly color. Or something) I compiled these twenty four facts for me and for you – one day when I’m old I will look at these and remember the kid I used to be.

  1. I am right handed
  2. I have naturally dark brown hair, although it is slightly purple right now.
  3. I have brown eyes
  4. I am South-African
  5. My home language is Afrikaans, which means I speak one of the rarest spoken languages on Earth.
  6. My second language is English, and it is the language which SA operates in (we have eleven official languages, so it is important to share one common tongue)
  7. I am currently studying Microbiology at the University of South-Africa
  8. I work as a laboratory technician at a research company.
  9. I am an introvert, but if I am around people I’m comfortable with I can get out of hand.
  10. I confuse the words “Purple” and “Orange” in my head. I fully know which color is which; it just doesn’t come out that way.
  11. I sometimes can’t remember if I dreamt something or if it really happened.
  12. I can’t swim.
  13. Reading is currently my only one true love. (That you do know, as it is what this blog is mostly about)
  14. I wanted to be a fashion designer growing up.
  15. I like all kinds of music, especially rock. I like very very little Pop music.
  16. Speaking of which, the only boy band worth mentioning EVER is Westlife.
  17. My favorite color varies on my mood, but it is mostly strong colors like black or red or white.
  18. My favorite old movies are Dirty Dancing and Grease.
  19. If I can only visit one other country ever I wish to visit France to see the Eiffel Tower.
  20. If I can visit a lot of countries I would especially want to go to Germany, Ireland, Italy, and France, China and Brazil and somewhere where I can experience the Aurora lights.
  21. Favorite food and drinks: Chips, Coffee, Coke, Wine and Ice cold Savannah light.
  22. Favorite authors: Nora Roberts, Tolkien, Marian Keyes, Rowling.
  23. My best friend is Zoë, who lives in Nelspruit, SA. It is about five hours from where I live in Johannesburg.
  24. Hobbies: Reading, writing, blogging, watching series, going to movies, and visiting new places.

I hope that gives you some idea about me. Please tell me some interesting things about you too! J

  1. I love this list you old woman! The Eiffel Tower would be an impressive place to see though, even if I am not a fan of the France thing teehee. You don’t stay THAT far from me hahahaha! Like 3.5-4 hours! 😉

    Still impressed as hell about what you are getting for your degree!
