25 Facts about Me

Hi, everyone! So, today I’m going to complete this tag ’25 facts about me’ that Kiki at Abookwormsite very kindly tagged me in! She’s also done hers, check it out here! And go have a look around in her blog, because she is the loveliest girlie! So, this was a little difficult to finish because 25 facts are actually quite a lot! I wanted to make this somewhat interesting for you, but also personal… I hope you enjoy it and let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more of these!

2️⃣5️⃣ ⬇️

🌈 I’m allergic to animals (and almost everything else in life), but I really want a puppy!

🌈 I love coffee. I mean, I LOVE coffee. Plain black coffee. I love tea, but my love has always been a cup of coffee!

🌈 I live in France but I’m originally from Portugal.

🌈 I have 2 pairs of BFFs! Does that make sense? I have 2 best friends from middle school living in Portugal, and I have 2 best friends I met while studying abroad (they live in Finland and Poland! We speak every.single.day!)

🌈 And, whilst studying abroad in Ireland, I also met my boyfriend! YUP! He’s French (therefore the France living situation) and we’ve been together for almost 4 years.

🌈 I LOVE the Fast and Furious! I’ve been obsessed with cars since I was 8 or 9. I actually wanted to study mechanics for some time because I love cars so much…

🌈 I speak/understand Portuguese, English, French, Spanish, German (mostly only reading now) and Italian (funny story, never learnt it, but once you learn many languages, especially with the same root, you end up understanding most of many other languages, hence the Italian here!) – AND I actually learnt Latin too! We only write and read it nowadays, but super fun!

🌈 We’ve been watching FRIENDS every night since we moved to the new apartment. It’s our second time watching it together back to back. (I’d watched it 3 times before meeting L)

🌈 I had this huge celebrity crush……..on Channing Tatum (and Johnny Depp) when I was 13. It lasted for years… especially after Magic Mike. Now, I have a crush on a YouTuber… but I won’t say whom!

🌈 I want to have my own languages school. It has been my dream for a few years now. And it’s been my goal for 2 years.

🌈 One of my favourite quotes (I have way too many!) is: ‘If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.’ by Milton Berle.

🌈 Some of my favourite books are Fangirl, One plus one, After, Pride and Prejudice, and many, many more! Any book I’ve ever read is probably my favourite. I loved all of them!

🌈 The perfect day for me would to explore a new city/place, have a cup of coffee in my hand, it’s Autumn, I have comfy clothes, a beautiful coat and colourful scarf, L is holding my hand, we have lunch at a local cute pub, have the best beer, walk some more, take Instagram pics, smile, laugh, have a roast for dinner, watch a movie (or FRIENDS) together on the couch… It’s actually so dreamy, I’m craving a day like this RIGHT NOW!

🌈 My birthday is super important for me. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved it and always tried to have the best day! I just love being on the spotlight for one single day.

🌈 I do NOT take naps… I just can’t fall asleep in the middle of the day. Mind you, I did take naps for a week or two in late June, but then we discovered my T1D.

🌈 Which brings me to this one, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (I write tons about it in my Diabet’Series) AND Verneuil’s Diasease in 1 week’s time… It was a fun July, for sure!

🌈 I eat anything by layers – croissants, pains au chocolate, Ferrero Rocher, … I just remove a little layer, then another and another… I’m pretty sure this is really weird. 🤷🏻‍♀️

🌈 I’ve always wanted to publish a book… or two. Or you know, become an author. And only write for days on end…

🌈 I danced for almost 9 years. I danced contemporary, ballroom, hip-hop, modern… I loved it all. I’ve wanted to start again for 3 years, but still haven’t.

🌈 I’ve never seen actual snow. It snowed when I lived in Paris, but it would be liquid by the time it would touch the ground.

🌈 I have a younger sister who’s 19 – almost 20?! Where is life, man?! – and she’s my best friend.

🌈 I’ve always hated doctors… I would literally hyperventilate and end up fainting when I had to go to the doctor.

🌈 I love History and weird facts. I read lots and watch videos, movies all the time. I get information I don’t even know about and when asked questions, sometimes I know the answer, but I can’t explain how I know it. L knows this first hand. He makes sure to ask me the random-est questions and SOMETIMES I know the answers.

🌈 My sister and I just know what the other has on her mind. If we want to criticize someone (by the way, awful thing to do, I know!) we’ll just look at each other and laugh. We just know!

🌈 I’m a leftie! Yep, I write with my left hand… they say us lefties are very creative and are born to be in a liberal profession – I agree!

Oh my! And there you go! 25 random facts about me! I need to nominate some people now, so I’ll select Mollie Says…, 100 Days of Reading, Alexa Ofelia, Sophie Louise, Rebecca Says… and Boots in Summer! Enjoy, ladies!

Happy Thursday, catreaders!

  1. Thanks much for completing the tag! I absolutely love this! It’s great. I am also a History lover, and I cannot sleep in the middle of the day either, the only time I ever have is if i’m really ill, and I did do it once after I came out of hospital. And, as you can probably tell, I really want to publish my own book too!

    Thanks for this post! It was stunning!

    1. owwww thanks so much! It was a challenge, but it was fun too! Thanks for tagging me! Oh, yeah, if i’m ill, I’ll stay in bed all day and probably will fall sleep during the day too! 😁😁

  2. Oh I love reading these kind of posts, it was great to get to know you a bit better 🙂 You studied abroad in Ireland? This is so amazing. I love this country so much, it’s so stunning <3 Where exactly did you study, Dublin, or another city? 🙂
    I got the same kind of connection with my sister, it is amazing just to be able to look at each other and know ahah 🙂

    1. I wanted to tag so bad on this but I didn’t know if you’d do it 😕 if you want, please do! I’ll edit your link on the post! I’d love to know more about you too! 😋 ohhh yes, I studied in Limerick! It’s a good 3h30 from Dublin! (the roads there are not great though! haha would be a lot faster in France to get from one city to the other). But I travelled the country whilst there and it was amazing! I really miss it! We’re actually planning to go back in 2018 for the first time since we all met! ♡♡♡♡
      Oww yeah? Is she younger too? I miss mine very much! We always have the best fun! ♡

      1. Oh that’s so sweet, I might do it at some point then 😀
        Oh, I never went to Limerick – already visited Dublin, Galway and Belfast, though, and I am.in.love. with this country ahah <3 <3 It's so great that you're going to go back soon! <3

        No, she's two years older than me, but we're really close <3
