I should start this post off with a bit of an explanation. I haven’t posted in a while, a week to be exact. We’ve had some big storms here lately, and my internet has been down for 7 days; 7 agonizing days. But it’s back now and so am I! I’m a bit torn as to what I want to do with this 30 Day Challenge, do I want to post everything I missed when my internet was gone? Or do I just want to pick up here, on Day 18, and forget about the past few days? I think I may have to go with the latter, just for my sanity’s sake. So here it goes, Day 18, I hope you will join me on the next leg of this writing challenge and will forgive me for missing the past week. Here goes nothing!

Day 18: Post 30 facts about your self.

1. I am turning 22 on August 7th.
2. My favorite color is Seafoam Green
3. I’ve wanted to live in the UK/Ireland since I was in preschool, there are adorable drawings from me at age 4 describing where I want to live and why I wanted to live there, along with a FANTASTIC little Union Jack flag in the background.
4. I don’t believe I have ever really been in love romantically.
5. In Kindergarten I chose “J.K. Rowling” as what I wanted to be when I grew up. That’s still accurate today.
6. I like to watch the NASA channel on TV when I’m doing things around the house like cleaning, or working on homework. I find it really soothing.
7. I listen to audiobooks to fall asleep at night almost all the time.
8. I consider myself to be an “old soul”.
9. I really, REALLY hate onions. They make me feel sick every time I eat one.
10. I haveΒ two older brothers, one 12 years older than me and the other 7 years older.
11. I did competitive cheerleading as a child, won a lot of awards, and absolutely hated it.
12. When I was a little kid, I used to burst into tears and turn off the VCR when the villagers grabbed their torches and pitchforks to go after the Beast in Beauty and the Beast.
13. I have an obsession with outer space and maps.
14. I feel most at home when I’m by the sea, especially on cloudier cooler days.
15. I have very pale skin, and burn almost instantly when out in the sun without sunscreen.
16. I am half Italian and half Danish. No one ever believes that I am half Italian until they see my mother. I most definitely took after the Scandinavian side of my family.
17. I sing in the shower. Loudly.
18. I once broke my arm in two places, when riding a bike with no brakes. I have my brothers to thank for that.
19. I love to bake. It is one of my favorite things to do.
20. My dream home isn’t a huge mansion like many people would want, but a small little cottage, with fields of flowers in the countryside, with a city close enough to go to everyday, but far enough to keep things calm and quiet.
21. When I was 11, I beat 55 other people, all at least a few years older than me, in a geography bee.
22. I love to fly in airplanes.
23. I have 4 teeny tiny tattoos. And will be getting one more teeny tiny one next summer.
24. When I was seven, my brother spilled red Kool-Aid on the floor, so naturally I laughed at him. He then lifted me up by my ankles and mopped up the Kool-Aid with my bright blonde hair, causing the ends of my hair to be dyed pink. He got in a lot of trouble, and I had pink hair. It was a win-win for 7 year old me.
25. I don’t like to go to family functions with my extended family, because I don’t enjoy being around them.
26. I love my pets more than I love most people.
27. I love to shop and buy new things, but I hate going to stores.
28. I am a really loving and caring person, almost to a fault.
29. I am a dreamer.
30. I believe that someday there will be a time when everyone in the world will be able to get along.

Bonus Fact: Missing this last week of blogging really made me realize how much I truly enjoy it! I hope this little blogging hobby is something I keep up for a long time. πŸ™‚

I hope you all will accept me back into the world of blogging, and will forgive me for being away for a while. I’m excited to be back at this and have missed this outlet dearly. And thank you crispywalker for checking on me and making sure everything was okay after noticing I hadn’t posted in a while, that was very kind of you!

I hope you’re doing well, where ever you are in the world, and I wish you all the best.

-Lexie Xx

    1. I guess! Haha. If it sounds familiar, I just go with it. Often times I’ll have to listen to parts multiple times so that I don’t end up skipping over parts. But I usually try to use audiobook versions of books I’ve already read so that I’m not missing out on too much when I fall asleep. πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah, it probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it really relaxes me! πŸ™‚ Its the only solution that I’ve found, as I like to have something to listen to when I go to sleep, but having the television on or music playing is to distracting for me.

  1. Haha. I am half Italian too! I have been to Italy and loved it but it is easy to see how Italian i am when you see my last name. Everyone always tries to say it in an Italian accent. Haha.

    And i like that you are caring and loving as there needs more people in the world like that and i consider myself the same.

    And please keep blogging. I try hard to blog myself but i always enjoy yours!

    1. My mother’s last name is the same way, mine however, is very Scandinavian haha. Thanks so much, I hope that my caring nature does a little bit of good from time to time. πŸ™‚ I appreciate you checking my little blog out!

  2. This list is fab! I feel like I know you really well, better than colleagues I’ve sat with for many many years. If you get over to the UK think of Liverpool, but if you’re after a cute cottage it made me think of where Kate Winslet lives in The Holiday! Places like Cotswolds, Peak District, North Wales and the Lakes may be your ideal break away xx

    1. Thanks so much Claire! After seeing all of your posts on YOU and on facebook I feel like I know you as well, and I think we would be great friends in the “real world”. πŸ™‚ I plan to get to Liverpool within the next couple years, its one of the few big cities that I haven’t explored fully! I was only there for a day, so I saw very little of it. I love that adorable house in The Holiday (and the movie itself, what a lovely little chick flick)! I’ve only spent time in the south of Wales, so I may have to pop down to North Wales at the same time as my Liverpool trip when I get the chance to take it. Do you have any recommendations of places to go or things to see?

  3. Hi, Lexie! I just wanted to stop by and tell you that I really enjoy your blog. I love that whatever you write, may it be a list of random facts, always seems really personal and I like that. I like that I can read your blog and pretend like we’re friends, although I have no idea who you are.

    Anyway, keep it up πŸ™‚
