Happy Monday everyone! I woke up at 6:20AM today, which is the earliest I've woken up this summer. I've just been slowly pushing my alarm back and back because I freaking LOVE mornings, and the earlier I wake up, the more morning I have!
So I guess that's one fact to know about me, hehe. It's that I'm a morning person. But for this blog post I wanted to do something more in-depth and answer a ton of personal questions that'll really help you get to know me. Okay, so some of the questions ask about the color of my house or whether I wear contacts, but I guess in some way that'll help you get to know me better?
I got this tag from the wonderful Becca who blogs over at Hellomoonies and you should totally do it as well! If you do, make sure to share the link with me - I would love to read it! Without further ado:
1. Were you named after anyone?
I believe my mom’s friend named her daughter Beatrice and my mom liked the name.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Hmm… I actually can’t remember, thankfully! This would be a much easier question during the school year, hehe.
3. Do you like your handwriting?
Yes, I like the way it looks and how I connect some letters but not others. When I'm taking notes for school really quickly most other people can't read it but I guess as long as I know what it says ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
4. What is your favourite lunch meat?
I do like salmon a lot, although I’m sure that’s not considered a lunch meat, haha. I try to stay away from those packaged lunch meats, especially those scary perfectly circular slices of mystery meat packaged in plastic (yikes!).
5. Do you have kids?
Uh, nope, for obvious, age-related reasons (I'm 17). Also, little kids just tire me out so I’m not a huge fan.
6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I think so!
7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Moderately. Wait, was that sarcastic? I don't know. I don't like to use sarcasm online because it's hard to convey but I'm pretty sarcastic in person.
8. Do you still have your tonsils?
I do, although I feel like I probably should have gotten removed at some point… I’ve had a lot of dentists comment on how big they are. Oops.
9. Would you bungee jump?
Ooh… Possibly over water. But it would take me hours of self-pep talks to get myself over the edge.
10. What is your favourite cereal?
Multigrain Cheerios are so underappreciated. When I first came to the United States (I was about 5), my dulled sugar receptors thought it tasted like cardboard. I had a lot of overly sweet foods in Lithuania… Now I’ve learned to appreciate the subtle ~gourmet~ flavors of this simple cereal.
11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Usually no, but I ripped a favorite pair of white sneakers doing that so I’m trying to not do that with anything except athletic sneakers (they can usually hold up to it).
12. Do you think you are strong?
*hair flip* Yes! I’ve invested too much time and energy into getting strong to downplay it, haha.
13. What is your favourite ice cream?
Definitely something with chocolate chunks in it, I always need something to chew on in my ice cream. So let’s say mint chip.
14. What is the first thing you notice about people?
This question is really hard because it’s such a subconscious thing. A lot of people say eyes but I don’t think I notice that so much. I would say hair. It's also easier to notice because you don't have to be looking straight at a person to see it.
15. Red or pink?
16. What is the least favourite thing about yourself?
Perfectionism and occasional inability to just CHILL, agh.
17. Who do you miss the most?
I have been pretty lucky in my life to not lose people extremely close to me or to go through a big move (oh except that one time I moved across the Atlantic Ocean, but I was very little then. Also, all of my old friendships have ended very naturally and gradually, I would say. So I think I miss my grandmas the most. They both live in Lithuania and I haven’t gotten to see them in a few years.
18. What is the spark feature that has helped you the most?
What?? Okay, Becca didn’t know the answer to this either so I’m not alone. She put in her own question so I’ll just answer that - “WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TEA AT THE MOMENT?” My answer: Harney & Sons smoked black tea. It smells like a campfire. I think it's this one.
19. What colour shoes are you wearing?
Green socks. Usually white or black shoes.
20. What was the last thing you ate?
Some leftover banana pancakes with chocolate chips. I’ve been snacking a lot today, THE HUNGER NEVER ENDS.
21. What are you listening to right now?
I can’t work with music, humph. I’ve actually got earplugs in, haha. But my latest (and greatest!) music discovery is Boomin’ In Your Jeep by Crystal Fighters. If it weren’t for Spotify I would listen to like, two artists total.
22. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
23. Favourite smells?
Snickerdoodle cookies, that smell outside when spring has just arrived, Melissa brand shoes, new books.
24. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
Receptionist at my dentist’s office #adulting
25. Mountain hideaway or beach house?
To vacation in? Mountain hideaway. To live in? Beach house.
26. Favourite sports to watch?
Basically only Olympic figure skating.
27. Hair colour?
Naturally dirty blonde, but right now it’s dyed a lighter, more ashy grey blonde tone.
28. Eye colour?
Highly contested! I’ve decided to call it greenish grayish blue.
29. Do you wear contacts?
Yes, and they’re the best thing to happen to me. Ah, the freedom! The people who say it’s a big responsibility are way overplaying it.
30. Favourite food?
Goodness gracious, you can’t do this to me. I’ll pick an ingredient, how’s that? Avocado. But also chocolate, pesto, sushi, ice cream, hearty salads, oatmeal, etc.
31. Scary movies or happy endings?
Why can’t scary movies have happy endings? I’d say happy endings. There’s no specific movie genre that I like best. I like comedies, movies that make you think, and even movies that are just plain aesthetically pleasing.
32. Last movie you watched?
A Quiet Place, for the second time. First I watched it in a theater full of students at my summer camp, and then I forced my family to watch it. I think I was more scared the second time around.
33. What colour shirt are you wearing?
Blue. Very bright blue, from a 5K run.
34. Summer or winter?
Summer! I’ve lived in Wisconsin for enough years to get sick of winter. If winter was three weeks long I’d be perfectly happy with that. I’d live in a perpetual cycle of spring and autumn if I could.
35. Hugs or kisses?
36. Favourite dessert?
Tres leches cake or brownies, but the brownies are harder to get right.
37. Strength training or cardio?
38. Computer or television?
I can’t live without my computer, are you kidding?
39. What book are you reading right now?
Just finished The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and now I’m working on Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss.
40. What is on your mouse pad?
Don’t have one. Do people still use those?
41. Any tattoos?
42. Favourite sound?
Oh, interesting. Miscellaneous nature sounds, does that count? Rain, soft bird chirping, breeze blowing through trees, ocean waves, streams trickling.
43. Rolling Stones or Beatles?
I was born in 2000.
44. What is the farthest you’ve been from home?
I think the place where I was born - Lithuania! I currently live approximately 4600 miles away.
45. Do you have a special talent?
I can make a clover shape with my tongue and also constrict my pupils at will #skillz
46. Where were you born?
47. Where are you living now?
Wisconsin, USA, and that’s as specific as I’ll get ;) Although it’s probably not super hard to figure out, haha.
48. What colour is your house?
Red siding, brown brick.
49. What colour is your car?
“My” car is silver.
50. Any pets?
Nope. What a sad ending to this tag.
That was such a fun tag to do! I love these interview-style posts where I can just answer questions - they do half the work for me, haha! If you're a curious cat and want to learn more about me, I've also done a 15 facts about me post, a 15 MORE facts about me post, and a 40 facts about me video (ah, so much).
I'm also doing an Instagram Q&A today where I'll answer any questions you have for me - just head on over to @theblissbean and check out my stories!
Wishing you the happiest of Mondays,
