October 27, 2016

random and interesting facts about me
I Am Finally Sharing Some Random And Interesting Facts About Me!

Happy Friday!

Today I had the idea of writing a post that is a little different from what I normally do. Random and interesting facts about me.

I usually write motivational and self development posts or post on my many travels.

Share my life experiences both past and present, but not too much about ME in regards to my likes and dislikes.

Well, today I am changing that. I am sharing with you 11 random and interesting facts about me.

I am just going to write whatever comes to mind and share. As I said, random. LOL

A teenie tiny look at my personal side, quirks and all.

*11 Random Facts about the Bee behind the Blog*

1. I have an addiction to bags – You can never have enough bags.

2. I have never watched Star Wars.

3. I love food.

4. My pet peeve is people who are always late.

5. I love Make Up Forever.

6. I love making lists.

7. I like country music.

8. I have eight piercings.

9. I only drink on two occasions – when it’s my birthday and when it’s not.

10. I have two tattoos ( say that real fast ten times over, ha!).

11. Favourite Quote:

So there you have it, 11 random and interesting facts about me that you probably didn’t know.

BONUS RANDOM FACT: I often wish I had magical powers.

Enough about me! It is Friday, and I want to make today a day of laughter and smiles.

Not only for myself but for you. So let’s share a little bit of ourselves with others today and hopefully put a smile on some of our faces.

I would love to spread some smiles around the world and need your help.

Please share with me in the section below:

  • the country you are in AND
  • at least ONE random fact about yourself

Whatever pops into your head first. No filter. (But let’s keep in PG if possible).

If you wish to share more- even better!

Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend!

    Great idea you have here for a post. While I was reading this, I keep trying to remember what I know about you. I know you are a teacher. I know you love learning and rather than just knowing, you actually try to understand if something fancies you.

    Let me share one fact about me. I am ethnic Chinese. My parents are both from China. I was born and raised here in the Philippines over four decades ago. 🙂

    What a great list. Unfortunately, I am always late LOL Next you need to post a picture of your tattoos 🙂

    1 in your list is common with almost every woman i know or have come across, 3 in your list is cool with us all, i mean who doesnt like food?. 5 is a must for any woman/lady who is fashion inclined like you are, 8 and it represents 8 percings for you, thats much though… if am opportuned to ask, what and where are these piercings?, 9 is funny how you made it sound just 2 but its actually more than 2 in real sense. 10 is where i get gripd to read through as i love tatoos and have a few. your favourite quote is good also….

    in all, good post for its random.

    And to answer your questions: I’m in the United States and a random fact would be that I don’t like the Harry Potter books. I just couldn’t get into them. I tried! Most of my friends are appalled with me.

      Sheri @ A Busy Bees Life

      Hi Amber. It took me ages and ages to get into Harry Potter. I started the books and was bored to death. With the movies, I could not understand what the craze was. After the third one came out, I finally decided to watch and I LOVE Harry Potter. Have you tried watching the movies?

    Lovely post Sheri, you certainly put a smile on my dial. I have never watched the star wars movies either! haha. A random fact about me is that I’m addicted to chocolate, I can’t keep it in my house either because I would just eat it all in one go. lol Oh and I live in Australia, I’m not Australian though! New Zealander all the way! Thanks for sharing you lovely post, I needed it today. I love your picture as well, you look gorgeous.

      Yayyyyy Lennae! Glad I could put a smile on your face – from Austria to Australia. Mission accomplished! Thank you for the compliment about the picture, I have been too shy to add pictures of myself to my posts and I am slowly loving myself more and stepping out of my shadow…this is very rare. Now you put a smile on my face, so THANK YOU so much for that. About the chocolate…I could almost call it a sin. I try not to be tempted but I fail every. single. time. 🙂
