12 Things You Wouldn't Know About Me Unless You Knew Me

It is really easy for people to judge someone based on appearances. That is human nature. Living in the 21st century, social media is something that has taken over our lives. We think we "know" people because we are simply friends with them on Facebook or follow each other on Instagram. Living in this social media based world, I sometimes feel like people don't really get to know each other because we already think we know them from our social media. With that being said, here are 12 things you wouldn't know about me unless you really knew me.

I just started liking dessert.

This is sad but true. Up until now, I hated dessert and would never order it when I went out to eat. Instead, I would impatiently wait while everyone else ordered and ate what they called the "best part of the meal." Now, I can't end my day without having something sweet to eat. I used to only eat brownies for dessert but now I have expanded to ice cream, cake, and more. Let's just say my friends are very proud of me.

I replay songs until I hate them.

I swear I am that person who finds that one popular song from every artist and then claims it as their favorite song. When I shuffle my playlist, I will skip every other song until I get to the one that is my favorite. A month goes by and when the song comes on, I can't stand listening to it because I am already sick of it.

I have pee anxiety.

So many people find this one funny. My pee anxiety consists of not being able to pee in front of other people. Don't doubt me though, I found a way to relieve the anxiety. What I do is put headphones in and blast music so I can't hear anyone around me. Yes, I may look silly sitting in a stall with headphones in, but you got to do what you got to do.

I love making dancing videos.

Recording myself dancing in my room like a fool is one of my favorite things to do. Ask my friends, these videos are some of the most legendary pieces on my finsta. I cannot say I am a particularly good dancer, but I can say that it is fun to watch me make a fool of myself and be silly. I love to make these with friends so hit me up if you're interested!

My celebrity crush is Nathan Scott (James Lafferty).

Nathan Scott

Ever since I first watched One Tree Hill in 2014, it has been my favorite show (this isn't new information if you have read my other articles). I absolutely have the biggest fan crush on Nathan Scott who is played by James Lafferty. I rewatch the show so many times because I love him so much and I think he is so cute.

I covered my birthmark when I was younger.

When I was younger, one of my insecurities was the birthmark that is on my left thigh. As a result, I would put a band-aid over it because I did not want people seeing it. At the moment, I didn't realize all it did was attract more attention to it. As I got older, I grew out of doing this because I realized so many people have birthmarks and it is a ~part of me~.

I'm the worst at watching movies.

Do not ask me to watch a movie unless it is a childhood movie because I will 99.9999% fall asleep during it or try and talk to you during it. I wish I was better at watching movies because when I actually sit through a movie, I really like it. I guess it is something I am just going to need to get better at.

I always sleep with a sleeping mask.

When I was in first grade I decided to use my allowance to get a sleeping mask at Claire's. I have no idea why I wanted one, but I thought they were cool. Ever since that day, I have slept with a sleeping mask every night. I can't fall asleep at night without them. I don't even use them to block any light, I just physically need to feel the mask on my face.

I still sleep with all of my childhood stuffed animals.

It's true, I am a child at heart and would feel like the most guilty person in the world if I put them in boxes in my basement. Although I have put away some of them, I have to sleep with my favorite homies on my bed and in my arms every night.

I took Chinese in high school.

Chinese

Don't be impressed, but for some weird reason Chinese was considered an "easy" class at the high school I went to. I took Spanish in middle school and was absolutely horrible at it. When I got to high school, I wanted to find a different language to take. I had heard the Chinese class was easy, so I decided to take it. Unfortunately, I do not remember much of it, but it is cool to say I took it for four years!

I don't really like dogs.

When I tell people I don't like dogs, I'm almost sure that it breaks their heart. So many people I know are such dog people. When I was younger I was terrified of dogs. I would get so nervous when they would jump on me. I am not as scared of them anymore, but I honestly wish I was more of a dog person.

I practically only rewatch Netlfix shows. 

netflix

giphy.com

This is one of my worst habits. I am WAY too invested in the Netflix shows I have already watched that I never try and watch a new show. I always try and watch a new show, but I get bored halfway through the first five minutes and revert to one of my favorite shows that I have already watched at least five times.

These 12 things are definitely all little weird quirks of mine, but they are things that are what make me who I am. Not everyone who knows me would know all things traits about me, but that doesn't mean they won't learn about them sooner or later.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
