Song of the day: Stay - Rihanna (but really I've been listening to a cover done by two girls in my school who sang an AMAZING acoustic version of it at that musical festival thing I was telling you guys about before and urgh their harmonies were just perfect and adjfhlkhdjkgh WHY CAN'T I SING?!?)
Ugh I don't know what's going on with me but I either have mad allergies or an annoying cold and it's making me miserable. Wahhh. :(
But hmm let me try to list 25 random things about me now:
1) My cell phone is a whopping eight-years-old. So it's one of those dinosaur flip phones where you have to press that "2" button thrice to type the letter "C". Yeah. That probably says a lot about me. Lol. Basically, I'm not one of those teenagers who's constantly on her phone. Slash I'm pretty much never on my phone, actually. I don't exactly text, so my primary mode of communication is email or FB messaging.
2) I didn't get a FB until a few months ago. GASP. That may or may not sound like a big deal, but in the school where I come from, with kids getting on FB as early as 6th grade (maybe even earlier nowadays, I don't know) that's pretty strange.
Side anecdote: I had this friend who used to not have a FB either, and whenever people would be like, "Friend me on FB" or "What's your FB name? I can't find you!" or whatever, she'd be like, "I don't have a FB. I'm above the influence." And I just thought that was pretty witty. And there's a lot of truth to that statement actually. While I didn't have a FB mostly because my parents forbade me from getting one for the longest time, I also found value in not having one. For example, it really does save you from a lot of unnecessary distraction, and I think it keeps you less superficial and saner when it comes to your social life. If that makes any sense. But I also always found it kind of amusing when people would react to me not having a FB -- I'm talking eyes popping out of their sockets, mouths dropping, etc. Lol. Also -- this might sound a bit self-righteous, but bear with me for a while -- I think it says something about a person when they make that decision to NOT have one and kind of be above all of that, as I said before, superficial stuff (i.e. all the "liking" of stuff, the superfluous posting of photos, having 123456789 friends, etc.). The reason I succumbed is it became impractical not to have one what with literally EVERYONE else having one. But I will say that, after living without it for a long time, I find that it's definitely overrated. Anyway. That was kind of long, but, I think, all that provides a lot of insight on the type of person I am, which, I assume, is the objective of this tag.
3) Taking a break from the philosophical and going to the trivial... I have two Labradoodles who I am obsessed with. Though I wouldn't really say I'm a dog person. I just love mine :). No, but I really do appreciate dogs more now that I own them (I got them only like 3 years ago and lived most of my life without them).
4) I hate being a twin sometimes. Oh, and for those of you who didn't know (though I think most of you who are reading this now probably already know) I am a twin. And we're not identical. Though everyone things we are. Fun fact: there's a theory about these so-called "polar twins" that are not technically identical (like based on their genes) but pretty much appear to be so. And supposedly the Olsen twins are an example of that because if you think about it, people assume they're identical, but if you really look closely, you can definitely differentiate them. But yeah. So that's supposedly what my twin and I are. But anyway. Getting back to the first sentence (btw do I always go off on tangents? Like honestly. I need to get my thoughts straight)... my twin and I do like all the same things cause we have all the same interests and it's kind of annoying sometimes. Lol. But, that said, there are obviously also some perks to being a twin. And NO we do not get twice the amount of clothes, as everyone always assumes. Lol. Though that's probably the case with some twins who share clothes. Just not us. Lol.
5) I only discovered One Direction after their X-Factor stint, which was earlier than pretty much all of America but later than the literal "original" fans, and while I was like a HARDCORE Directioner (admittedly, I'm not so much anymore though I'm still a huge fan), I always felt a little embarrassed about that lol so ever since that, I've felt this compulsive need to listen to a band/artist literally the SECOND I hear about them somewhere so that the next time someone blows up, I can honestly be like "I HEARD THEM FIRST." Lol. It's weird and pretentious, but yeah, there's a random fact for ya.
Okay. I'm gonna stop at five since those are long anyway and I'd like to think of meaningful ones rather than just giving you more boring "I have two dogs"-type ones. So, there's five for today, and I'll try to give you more and more as the week goes by (as long as I have time). Hope those weren't totally boring, and hope you learned something new about me! :)
Bye for now!
