It’s been more than 1 year since I started blogging and I never really wrote an article introducing myself. Only on my ‘About me‘ page you’ll find some information about myself but not that much. I found several ‘Get the know me’ posts on Pinterest and I took the questions I found the most interesting to write about. Let’s get to know me with the 20 questions tag !
There are lots of sorts of questions tags on the internet. For the first one I’ve tried to make it more general and not too deep. I will save that for later. I’ve picked 20 questions from different questions tags that will get you to know me better. Let’s get started!!
1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is obviously Sharon.
2. What was your favorite subject in school?
I always loved different kinds of language classes. I still love to learn different languages and I really have a feeling for it. In high school I also loved biology. I found it interesting how somethings in the body works, especially when it comes to the genes.
3. What is your favorite drink?
My favorite nonalcoholic drink is milk. Yeah, it’s might not be the average thing you hear if you ask a person what their favorite drink is but I can drink milk all day! I love it. When I’m thirsty I think of milk instead of water or coke or something. I don’t really drink soda that much because I just don’t like it. When it comes to alcoholic drinks it is Liquor 43.
4. What is your last bought product?
If you follow me on Instagram you might have read that I just bought a new pillow. I had a very old one that became real flat. I knew for months that I had to buy a new one but never actually bought one. My night rest was real bad and I was tossing around for hours. Now, I finally have a new one and I can tell you that I sleep way better than before. I just should have done it way earlier.
5. What is your favorite color?
Well, I know it’s not a real color but it’s black. For clothes at least. And for house accessories I like rose gold.
6. Do you have any pets?
I have one cat; Bailey. She’s 6 years now and I got her when she was only 7 weeks. I got her from a shelter and I am still so happy with her. I love her till death.
7. What is your favorite perfume?
That’s Lacoste Pour Femme.
8. What languages do you speak?
Besides Dutch and English I can speak Spanish, French and German. Not as good as English but I can make myself comprehensible.
9. What are your favorite YouTube Channels?
It’s hard to keep this list short. I can separate this list in two: International and Dutch YouTube Channels.
My favorite international YouTube channels are: Desi Perkins, The Perkins, Rose Bertram, Carli Bybel and Georgia’s Cakes.
My favorite Dutch YouTube channels are: Nienke Plas, Joelle Witschge, Monica Geuze, Laura Ponticorvo and Claire Lucia.
10. What is your favorite movie?
My all-time favorite movie is 27 dresses. I’ve watched it a thousand times and I can watch it over and over again. I just love the love story and I love Katherine Heigl. I secretly hope it will be on Netflix one day because I want to watch it again..
11. What are your favorite TV-shows?
At this moment I’m into Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Hawaii Five-0, Suits, Shooter, The Vampire Diaries and so my list goes on……
12. Mac or PC?
PC, I’ve never used any different before. I’m considering to buy a Mac just to be able to use iMovie.
13. What phone do you have?
An iPhone X max.
14. Can you cook?
Yeah, I can! And I love to cook. I can really enjoy a very well homemade dish. When I made something that tastes very good I’m so proud of myself and enjoy it even more. I always try to make new things and watch lots of videos or series. Eating fresh and healthy is very important to me and ever since I’ve moved out I’ve been cooking most of the days freshly. Unlikely than most students who mostly order food.
15. How do you describe your fashion sense?
16. What are your bad habits?
Not drinking enough (nonalcoholic offcourse!)
17. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Hard question.. but the first thing I mostly notice is if a person acts weird around me because they don’t know how to treat me. For some people it’s weird to see a little girl in a wheelchair and most people assume that I’m mentally crazy. Which I am in certain way :P. But you know what I mean, right? People try to hide it but I see right through them..
18. Favorite sports to watch?
I like soccer and kickboxing !
19. Hugs or kisses?
Ashley has left the building..
20. Do you have any tattoos?
Yes, I have 4 tattoos. One on my left wrist: Love. That was my first one. In high school I always wrote it on my wrist. When I graduated I decided I wanted to ink it as a memory.
On my chest I have the Shakespeare quote: The sun itself sees not until heaven clears. I got that one from the movie ‘The Prince and me’ and I just love the meaning of it. You can interpret it different ways. You can see it as a longer version of ‘love blinds’. To me it means that we sometimes have to get back to our deeper selves and feelings. Our vision and opinions on things can be very influenced by others and also social media. The sun in the quote is you and sometimes you have to clear yourself from all the opinions you hear around to really have your own opinion. The sun doesn’t ‘’see’’ until the clouds move away.
The third tattoo I got is a heart in my left ear. Me and my friend wanted to get a tattoo together and I came up with this idea. And yeah, we’re still friends !
The last tattoo I got is Serendipité on the outside of my right wrist. It is the French translation for Serendipity. My second favorite language is French and I always wanted a French tattoo. I figured that Serendipité is the French word and I thought you know it’s not that big of a difference so I chose the French one. It means: ‘Finding something good without looking for it’. I am a true believer of faith and think that certain things have to happen for a reason.
And that was my 20 questions tag. I hope you got to know me a little better. If you’d like to read a part 2 please let me know and don’t be afraid to ask me some questions.
