11 facts, 10 questions

Ashley of Lions lace and lattes tagged me to answer a few questions about myself, so here we go!
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.

1.  If I'm really hungry, I'm really angry. Therefore I constantly have snacks like granola bars, apples, bananas etc in my purse.
2. Music is so important to me, I am always listening to music and if I ever forget my iPod I'm lost! I can't even get ready in the morning without music playing. I don't have one particular genre that's my favourite, but I guess alternative rock, classic rock, etc. I adore Neil Young and Matthew Good.
3.  I used to have my lip pierced and still have a tiny hole from where it was.
4.  I love staying up late and I love getting up early, but the two don't coexist well. I hate sleeping in really late though, what a waste of a day!
5. I used to paint all the time, I was in art lessons for about 8 years. I haven't been painting at all in the past year and it's something I really miss and plan on getting back into now. I love art and it's such a great way to express yourself.
6. I genuinely love working out, I go to the gym 3-4 times a week and play soccer once a week. I've been playing soccer since I was 14, and started working out regularly when I was 17. Lifting weights, running, and biking is so fun and I always feel a million times better and more awake after a good work out. Being this active helped me in all my health problems, especially being able to recover quicker than expected.
7. When I was younger I wanted to be an Egyptologist, I'm still obsessed with Egypt, I have an ankh tattooed on the back of my neck
8. I'm allergic to almonds and birch trees
9.  I am really good at burping, I blame my older brother for this. He takes credit for it.
10. From all my crazy surgeries, I have about 45 inches of scar on my body, mostly on my torso.
11. I love reading, I read almost every night before bed and it's so calming. I probably read about 2-3 books a month. I got to meet my favourite author, Michael Ondaatje, earlier this year and it was so wonderful!!
1. What is your greatest accomplishment?
Wow that's a difficult question!! Yeeesh. Um, probably making it through the most stressful, painful and horrible 2 years of my life with a smile still on my face.
2. What's your favorite song?
That's like asking which is your favourite child!! The boy come home-Matthew Good according to my Ipod is my most played
3. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I couldn't live without breakfast. I love eggs, fruit, hash browns, pancakes, granola mmm. I can't eat meat in the morning though or else I get sick

4. What are three things that you couldn't live without?
My Ipod, Laptop, my Duke!!
5. What is your greatest fear?
Being eaten by a shark, that's my greatest irrational fear considering I don't live anywhere near an ocean.

6. What is your favorite movie?
Inglorious Bastards! Such a great movie

7. If you could be granted three wishes, what would they be, and why?
-To be healthy, and never end up stuck in the hospital again
-A ton of money, of course. It would be nice to not worry about money for school, books etc. I would definitely take a vacation!
-I'd give my last wish to my parents!

8. What's your favorite thing about where you live?
My family and friends all being close by, the summers can be quite awesome.
9. Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Hopefully doing something I love surrounded by people I love, being really happy. Hopefully with my PhD in psych, and working hard.
10. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My sense of humour

I'm not going to tag anyone but I'd love to hear more responses, so if you want to answer the questions above do it!!


  1. I constantly carry food with me, too! If I get hungry, I get crabby and sick, so I need to have food on hand at all times. It's a must!

  5. Inglorious Bastards is a brilliant movie and I have to confess I'm a burper too.

    Loved our answers, it's nice to know more about the person behind the blog xo

  6. I'm so jealous that you got to meet your favourite author!!! What fun. And I still think it's pretty awesome we're obsessed with Egyptology :) I've always wanted to get a scarab tattoo.

  7. love this! i always carry food as well haha i've always got nuts or a banana in my bag! i love staying up late and getting up early as well! i find a hot shower makes the mix work perfectly :P xxx

  8. Oh my goodness, I had my tongue pierced. I was JUST looking at a photo I took today and thinking how weird it is that my hole is still there. Oooh, YOUTH. Any other fun piercings besides your lip?

    1. Just nose, and 5 earring holes that I still have, although I never wear earrings...haha!

  9. I love this Jenna! And so funny, we've got lots in common. I'm a weird work out freak...and I say freak because I'm really creepily intense about it, especially in my spandex while pressing weights in front of a mirror. Love this little peek into your life, and hope all your wishes come true (I'm sure they will!).

  10. I always love these posts, it's so funny to see what little things we have in common and find out fun new facts - I didn't realise you had an ankh tattoo, now I wish I had seen it when you were here! I love Egypt, too, although not quite so much that I ever wanted to be an Egyptologist. I'm still waiting to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, to be entirely honest ;)

  11. i love your scarf!!

  12. These are so interesting to read! Numbers 1-5, it's funny how much we have in common:) Egyptologist, eh? Now that sounds like a cool job! I used to want to be an explorer...I had this weird obsession with Ferdinand Magellan...hehe. What kind of allergies do you get from birch trees. That's insane...I've never heard of that as an allergy before!

  13. on your random facts, i'm with you on 1,4, and 6. especially #4. it's past midnight here, and i have to be up in a few hours. guess i should be getting to bed!


  14. I get angry when I'm hungry, too! Feed me a sanwich!!! Cool post Jenna : )
