25 facts about me

It’s my 25th birthday today! So to celebrate with you guys, I decided to share 25 facts about me so you can get to know me a little better.

  1. My full first name is Lenneke, but I don’t expect people who don’t speak Dutch to be able to pronounce that, so I just go by Len on here.
  2. I have one brother who is 1,5 years younger than me.
  3. I am very introverted.
  4. I’m an INFJ (but I feel like my Ti is better developed than my Fe) and I know way too much about MBTI for someone who knows it’s not scientific.
  5. I didn’t read the Harry Potter books (or watch the movies) until I was an adult. I totally fell in love with them though! (disclaimer: I do not agree with the author’s transphobic views AT ALL, but I wasn’t aware of them when I wrote this post)
  6. Although Pottermore sorted me into Gryffindor, I’m not brave at all and consider myself a Ravenclaw.
  7. I always read the acknowledgements in books and watch the full roll credits after movies.
  8. I hate when Sims die. I’ve never made one die on purpose and even usually stop playing with families before any of them gets old enough to die of old age.
  9. My favourite type of chocolate is caramel seasalt.
  10. My favourite tea is probably fresh mint tea.
  11. I taught myself how to read when I was around two or three years old. No, I don’t know how I did it either.
  12. When I was 18 years old I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. It hasn’t qualified as a disorder for a couple of years now, but I do still struggle with some social anxiety every now and then. Having to call people is one of the few things that still gives me a lot of anxiety.
  13. My favourite colours are red and turquoise, but I wear mostly dark red and navy blue because I feel like those colours look best on me.
  14. I’m not really into coffee, but a caffé mocha from Starbucks is pretty good (and to be honest, so is a pumpkin spice latte. I’ve only had one once though).
  15. I’m not really into alcohol either because I simply don’t like the taste of it. I only very occasionally drink a little wine.
  16. I like being creative and I taught myself how to use GIMP to edit pictures and make graphics a couple of years ago. I’m not very good at editing pictures though, so if my blog pictures look a lot worse than most other people’s… that’s why.
  17. I tend to procrastinate a lot and do things at the very last moment (but I always manage to finish them in time).
  18. I can’t cut things in a straight line, even if my life depended on it. Especially wrapping paper. Cutting wrapping paper is the worst.
  19. I’ve never been much of a make-up person. I didn’t start wearing mascara until I was 16 years old, and I still only use mascara, BB-cream and concealer on a daily basis.
  20. I’m a bit claustrophobic and I didn’t realize until a couple of years ago because I had never associated things I’m afraid of (such as being in elevators, being deep underground) with claustrophobia.
  21. I’m really bad at math and suspect I might have some form of dyscalculia. I did learn very early how to read clocks though, which is apparently a thing many dyscalculic kids are bad at, so I’m not sure.
  22. My first memory might have been at 8 months old when I was getting Tupperware out of a box and putting it back in. My first confirmed memory is when I was 1.5 years old and my brother was born. Yes, I’m aware that’s very early.
  23. I’m not the most practical and structured person ever, which is why lists are a life-saver. I make a to-do list at the start of every week with a small list of tasks I need to do every day, and it really helps to be more productive.
  24. I have a driver’s license, but I never drive: I’m afraid I’ll cause an accident because of brain fog. I also am quite bad at spatial awareness and estimating distances, which might have to do with my possible dyscalculia.
  25. Back in the early 2000’s my boyfriend and I lived a few hundred meters away from each other without knowing. We didn’t meet until years later.

So there you have it, 25 facts about me. Now I’m going back to eating some cake!
