Hello friends! Today I have a very special post for you! Not only am I sharing some more about myself, but it’s a collab with the amazing Erin from KittyJade! Erin suggested it a week or two back, and I jumped at the idea. I’m honestly so excited to collaborate with her, as I love her platforms and she’s one of the kindest people I’ve come across. Her lovely blog focuses on books, lifestyle, and positivity content. Recently, she announced that she is going to tackle the topic of environmental issues, which is so important and exciting. We, along with 3 other amazing content creators, are also working together on a fundraiser to help aide the crisis on Yemen. More information at the end on the post, so make sure to stay (or just scroll down)!
I love watching and reading assumption posts because it shows a different perspective of the creator. Both Erin and I asked out followers over on Instagram to share their assumptions about us, and we were definitely not disappointed! Today, I am sharing and possibly debunking 10 assumptions about me. Erin is doing the same over on her blog; her post will be linked at the end. Here we go!
You are really shy before you get to know someone.
This about hits the nail on the head! I am absolutely silent until I scope someone out, even then, I don’t talk much. It takes me a really long time to warm up to people. I wish it wasn’t that way, but here we are! I really only talk around my friends, which is so weird because I have no problem communicating on my platforms! No joke, I have gone full days without saying a word. (A post I wrote exclusively for myyteenlifee goes into my ‘shyness’ more, if you want to check it out…)
You enjoy being a twin!
I would NEVER actually admit this to anyone I know in real life. (I don’t know why, I think I’m just petty…) However, I love being a twin. I have a built in best friend, and someone who can always relate to what I tell her. So many of my friends are jealous because we can talk about anything to each other— I would be jealous too!
You have a boyfriend.
Nope. I don’t think dating at this point would be beneficial for me. I think high school relationships can be absolutely adorable, but I don’t think that they’re for me.
You’re seen as the happy one in the friend group.
This is so interesting because I’ve never thought about it. I guess I am, but also not really. None of my friends are super cheery people, not that they’re not happy, they just aren’t over the top about it. I honestly don’t think that I vibe with that type of person, or at least the overly happy people in my school. In my friend group, however, I would like to think that I have the least amount of negative energy, so yeah, I guess in a way I am “the happy one.”
You love to exercise.
YES! My life is mapped out around exercising. I absolutely love running, and that love has sprouted my obsession with strength training. I absolutely love the hurt and the burn during a workout, and I am never bored with seeing my body getting stronger. I think I’ll add a very unflattering picture of myself here to really drive the point home…
You have a small group of really close friends rather than a large group of friends.
This is true. I really only have three close friends, and then a few people who I’ll chat with occasionally.
You want to go to college.
Totally! I guess it’s more expected of we than a want, but I definitely want to go to college. The thought of not going has never really seemed like an option, just because virtually everyone from my town goes straight to college after high school, and we aren’t really presented with any other options. As for what college I want to attend, I have absolutely no idea, but I have time to figure it out… kinda.
You’re more of a cat person than a dog person.
I have a weird answer for this one. I like dogs more, but I relate more with cats. Whenever anyone asks me if I like my cat or dog more I’ll say, “I like my cat more than my dog, but I love my dog more than my cat.” I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s that cars are my spirit animal? I know that’s confusing, but no: I am actually a dog person.
You love being organized, but have a messy room.
That’s what my family says! My desk is so organized and I have countless notebooks with lists and such, but my room is a disaster. It’s not that it’s necessarily messy, I just don’t have enough room for everything, so between my sister and I there’s a lot of stuff laying around.
You are really outgoing on social media, but shy in person.
Either everyone watched/read my Q&A, or I’m really easy to read because so many people said this one. As I said in my first answer, I am incredibly shy. Social media is such an amazing outlet for me. I would like to think I’m outgoing on my social, but I also know that my core traits peak through a little. It’s actually pretty weird that I can freely talk on here because I am, for lack of a better term, mute in real life.
This was so much fun to write! Thank you so much to everyone that submitted an assumption! And a huge thank you to Erin for collabing with me! I highly recommend checking her post out. I learned so much about Erin… like her full name. She has such a great tone and everything she writes sounds like she’s talking to you as her oldest friend. Here are her socials if you are interested:
BEFORE YOU GO, can you lend me a minute or two to talk about the crisis in Yemen? There is currently the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. More than 19 million Yemenis are in need of humanitarian aide, and millions are on the brink of starvation. Myself, Erin, and three other amazing content creators will be walking 10,000 steps every day for 4 weeks to raise money for Islamic Relief. They will then help aide Yemenis by providing necessities such as food. I will be sharing proof of my steps and more information about the walkathon over on my Instagram. More information about the crisis in Yemen and our donation page can be found HERE. Please considering donating or sharing. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you in advance for your support!
