Hey, friends! So, I’ve decided to do a little thing called the ‘Get to Know Me’ Tag. I found the questions for this down on Root Report while I was browsing the Internet, so I strongly recommend you visit over there for some tag links, helpful posts, and a friendly writer.
I’ve just been thinking…you guys don’t know a lot about me. I mean, from my homepage (because I accidentally deleted my ‘About’ page while in the honeymoon phase of having a blog) you know my likes and dislikes, and I guess you guys know that I’m an African-American girl, but what about me personally?
(But not too personal because I’m so freaking paranoid…)
So, let’s jump into this!
Are you named after anyone?
Yes. Actually, I’m named after my father, and the inspiration for my name was retrieved from a popular street in Philadelphia named after a civil rights activist (Cecil B. Moore).
When was the last time you cried?
Um…well, I’m a very emotional person, so the last time I cried was probably a couple of hours ago. Like, when I’m really really angry I’ll start crying, so I’m pretty sure I was angry at my brother, which made me cry. *shrugs*
Do you have kids?
Noooooo. And hopefully I won’t for a very long time.
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
That’s such an interesting question. I mean, it depends on what kind of person I would be. See, you’ve gotta be into people like me–I’m that honest friend that tells you the truth all the time. I mean, yeah, I have a filter (I won’t straight-up insult someone personally.) but people who don’t know me might be a little surprised at my bluntness from the get go.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Definitely. Sarcasm is my life.
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Just their face in general. Most people say the eyes, but I really just study their entire face–the size of their lips, the shape of their nose, how large their eyes are, the color of them, I sometimes try to guess their race…I do a full on facial scan. 😉
What is your eye color?
My eyes are a really dark brown, that sometimes looks black.
Scary movie or happy endings?
I think I have to say happy endings. I feel like if I were to watch a full-out horror movie, I’d have some sort of panic attack. Really, though, I had to leave the theater nearly a year ago when watching Nerve, so an actual horror movie would never leave my mind.
I love the smell of petrichor. I don’t know, but it seems to sting the air after a dry period, and it’s so satisfying to me.
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
The furthest I’ve ever been from home is Germany about a month ago.
Do you have any special talents?
Not particularly…I guess I’m pretty decent at the cello.
What are your hobbies?
I love singing, acting in theater, writing, reading, and taking photos.
Do you have any pets?
Nothing other than dust bunnies. 😉
Do you have any siblings?
Yes, I have one brother who’s three years younger than me.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’m not exactly sure. I just have so many different interests, that I feel my answer will change soon. For now, I want to do something that has to do with acting. My dream is to be a part of the 30th anniversary of RENT tour cast.
Who was your first best friend?
My first best friend was a girl named J (her name wasn’t J, but that’s what it started with). It was sort of random, actually, because we were doing a scarecrow project for which we got to choose our own colors, and I just suddenly chose the same colors as her, sat down to work with her, and we became best friends for two years.
How tall are you?
I am 61.5 inches tall. 😦
Funniest moment throughout School?
One of the funniest moments is when I was in 8th grade Latin class, and there was this really annoying guy in my class. There was a pause in the lesson, and we all stopped to see this dude pick up his pencil, break it, rub it against the desk, then start writing with it. Trust me, it was more complicated than that, but my Latin teacher made it funny by going, “Uh, did anyone else just see **** break that pencil and sharpen it with his bare hands?”
How many countries have you visited?
I have been to five countries: the USA, Mexico, the Bahamas, Switzerland, and Germany.
What is your Favorite drink? Animal? Perfume?
Wow, these topics are so unrelated it’s actually hilarious. Anyways, my favorite drink is Dr. Pepper. You have that at a restaurant? I’ll order it. My favorite animals are cats, and my favorite perfume is any body mist from Bath and Bodyworks.
What would you (or have you) name your children?
Oh. My. Gosh. So….my ideal names for a girl are Delilah and Inez (Or Inej, which is another, cooler spelling). For boys I like the names Fred and Forrest. I’m also a big fan of cool unisex names like Dylan, Rory, Avery, and Sidney.
What Sports do you play/Have you played?
I love to swim, but I never joined a swim team because I couldn’t handle the idea of swimming every single day. I also really love volleyball, and I’m considering joining a club team.
Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
I love watching Studio C (I’m watching them right now), SUP3RFRUIT, Rclbeauty101, polandbananasBOOKS, Ladylike, and Brooklyn and Bailey.
How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had?
Favorite memory from childhood?
One of my favorite memories is from kindergarten. I was really annoyed with one of my friends, and so when she asked if I’d sit with her at lunch the next day, I said no because I was “going to Disney World.” Coincidentally, the next morning, my parents woke me up with the amazing news that we were going to Disney World that day.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
My fashion sense is all over the place. One day I’ll wear a solid tee with jeans and sneakers, and another I’ll wear a cropped shirt buttoned to the collar with a knit cardigan, skinny jeans, and ankle boots (I just described one of my favorite winter outfits).
What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
I have an iPhone SE.
Tell us one of your bad habits!
One of my worst habits is noticing my horrible habits (eating unhealthily, forgetting about important obligations) and trying to change, then completely forgetting about my attempts to change.
I hope you guys enjoyed this tag, maybe if I get four likes on this one I’ll post another tag next Thursday *shrugs*.
Thank you so much for reading, and I’ll see you Saturday,
Yellow Eccentricity ❤
