Katy over at Plays Well With Coffee set up this awesome link-up and challenged us to answer 15 weird questions about ourselves!
#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
I don’t really have one. However, I go by Ami when my name is actually Amilia. When my Mom and Dad were coming up with names my Mom wanted to name me Alima after a girl she babysat as a child. My dad wanted to name me Amelia after his Grandmother. They came to an agreement and named me Amilia – Ami for short. I went through a short phase where I wanted to change the spelling to “Amy” but I ultimately decided that the original spelling better suited my unconventional personality well.
#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
I play with my hair all the time. I don’t even notice it a majority of the time! No wonder my hair is ridiculously frizzy..
#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I’m not sure I would call it a phobia and I’ve talked about this in one of my past posts, but I hate the sound of cotton-balls rubbing up against things, it makes me feel dizzy and nauseous. I know this doesn’t sound like a big deal but it makes it hard for me to open new pill bottles and get my blood drawn.
#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?
Haha! Me and my friend were just talking about show-tunes, I admitted that I randomly break out into Marian the Librarian from Music Man.
“What can I do, my dear, to catch your ear? I love you madly, madly Madam Librarian – Marian!”
#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
When people judge other peoples hobbies and interests. I don’t care if you like the same things or if you think what they are interested in is childish. A hobby is a hobby – seeing someone passionate about something whether it be football, art, crafting, nature, or even video games is a beautiful thing.
#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?
Shaking my leg when I should be sitting still.
#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right side, against the wall.
#8. What was your first stuffed animal & what was its name?
The earliest one I can remember was a giant pink bunny named Easter. My mom’s boyfriends family gave it to me for… well, Easter.
#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?
I don’t go to Starbucks very often, but when I do go I get a Chai Tea, preferably hot if the weather is right.
#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
I tell friends and family to put coconut oil on as a nighttime face moisturizer, but I forget to do it myself most of the time.
#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Both! Depending on what I am doing – I suppose I spend majority of the time facing the water.
#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?
I am double jointed in my wrists – so I can turn them almost all the way around after I stretch them.
#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?
Bread. I try to stay away from it and limit my carb intake but after a bad day I
#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?
“Awesoooooome.” (Usually with a bit of sarcasm.)
“I Can’t” (I know, I know. I can’t even…)
“Just spiffy” (That’s how I’m feeling.)
#15. Time to sleep what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
An oversized band tee, short sleeve in the summer, long sleeve in the winter, and a pair of stretchy shorts.
