20 Facts About Me

Now that you’ve learned about the type of person I am through my post Who I Am, I think you should get to learn the other aspects that make me, me. I complied a list of the most random, little facts about myself that some of my close friends might not even know! Enjoy ❤


  1. I have a betta fish named Hennrietta
    • I really want my own dog but I just don’t think I can commit to that now, so I got a fish.
  2. I have an abundance of pet peeves
    • When people don’t share the sidewalk, food and gum smacking, clicking of pens, when people breath weird, etc.
  3. I’m double jointed in 3 places
    • Came in handy during my dancing years. My hips, elbows, and knees go the other way. Quite gross, actually.
  4. I’m extremely sensitive
    • I cry at Apple iPhone commercials
  5. I would love to live in Switzerland some day
    • Or just travel in general. I think living in the same city for the rest of my life is silly, there’s so much more that I can learn!
  6. I’d rather stay in on a Friday night and relax with friends than go out to the bars
    • You actually can have true conversations and wear your jammies!!!! Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy tearing up Minneapolis, just enjoy saving money and my liver, ha!
  7. Regardless of what I’ve been told my whole life, and tried countless times to not, I still care what people think of me
    • There are guidelines around that, though. If I’m to never see that person again, does it really matter? No. Or if I’m being judged but having so much fun, I don’t let it get to me because I’m having fun so why does it matter, right?!
  8. I get well known idioms mixed up way too much
    • My boyfriend and I were trying to figure out our plans for the night and we couldn’t come to a conclusion so I said, “let’s just play it by year.” Come to find out it’s ear not year. Oops!
  9. I have really bad road rage
    • Thanks to my father, I tend to get all worked up and talk yell to myself, never actually doing anything, though, because I don’t have the guts to.
  10. I’ve never broken a bone or had surgery
    • (knock on wood)
  11. If I could eat sushi everyday, I would
    • It’s just so dang delicious! No.9 rolls, rainbow rolls, dragon rolls. Yum in my tum.
  12. I’ve always wanted to be an event planner; I just enjoy planning parties in general
    • I may have took it a little too far one time, though. I was babysitting for a family that I’ve known for years and before she left she laughed and said they were having a birthday party for their youngest in the morning and she had nothing set up yet she was still going out. Well, I took it into my own hands and I made cute little banners, cleaned their house, and got everything all set up. The sad part? I had so much fun doing it.
  13. I’d rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies
    • This speaks for itself!
  14. I have 2 planners that I religiously fill out
    • I have a weekly planner where I note my personal events then I have a planner that breaks up each day by hour where I put my things to get done at work as well as bills, budgeting, and daily gratitude’s.
  15. I don’t like to waste time on people who don’t put effort into our relationship
    • It’s not that I just drop people the second they wrong me but I feel after a large amount of time if someone doesn’t bring anything but negativity in my life why would I keep them around?
  16. I love animals way too much
    • Growing up I wanted to be a veterinarian but then I realized that sometimes you have to put the animals to sleep and I just don’t think I could stomach that. I’d end up with 40 pets, nursing them back to health (probably not but I would try!)
  17. I love dishes with a lot of flavors
    • In the context of me trying something my boyfriend always says “it has a lot of flavors, so I know you’ll like it”
  18. I really like whiskey
    • Whiskey soda is my drink of choice! Don’t knock it till you try it.
  19. I usually read a different book every other week
    • I take the bus into work and sometimes the commute can get quite long so it creates the perfect time for me to nose dive into a book; sometimes I want to get off at the next stop just so I can finish that chapter.
  20. I am an absolute OCD freak about everything
    • Ugh, this is something that I have a love-hate relationship with. If something is off-centered it’s all I can think about!! Other things – cleanliness, my desk, spacing of objects, the list goes on and on. — now that, basically anyone who meets me can figure out in the first 10 minutes.

Well, hopefully you enjoyed reading the small traits that define the type of person I am. Maybe while you were reading you thought “I do that too!!” but in all reality you were probably like, “wow, this girl is crazy.”

PSA – every girl is some kind of crazy.

Hope you enjoyed this all-over-the-place post!

with love | Madelyn
