37 things you didn’t know about me

  1. I am forever afraid of being bored, which is why I pretty much always have a book with me. I can never just sit still and do nothing, much to the annoyance of my boyfriend.  At least let me read!
  2. Although I’m all about sharing photos on Instagram, I’m old school when it comes to travel photos: I have them all printed out and put them in proper albums
  3. I hate people that clip their nails in public. The sound makes me go up the walls. Seriously, stop it.
  4. I love to sing. I need a belting out all of my favourites session at least once a month.
  5. My favourite TV series of all time is McLeod’s Daughters. It’s one of the reasons I am so fascinated with Australia.
  6. I have a slight obsession with tea. Any flavour, any time of the day, anywhere.tea
  7. I hate people who are obsessed with themselves. (Or does this blog post classify me as one of those people?)
  8. I have lived in three different countries: Belgium (in my home town and now in Brussels), Australia (Gold Coast, for 10 months) and Sweden (for 6 months)
  9. I love lipsticks and blushes, because I am convinced they can completely transform someone’s look
  10. I need a little space from time to time: solo travel, a few hours of people watching in a park, a couple of hours with a good book, a solo shopping spree.
  11. I dread the idea of having to fold laundry, but when I’m doing it, it sort of relaxes me.
  12. I sometimes think I function on photosynthesis. The sunnier the weather, the better my mood.
  13. I hate the smell of lavender.
  14. I have major FOMO. Especially when it comes to travel.
  15. As a consequence of 14. I am severely impatient with life. I’d rather have done something yesterday than tomorrow.
  16. I have 4 pet fish named after my 3 best friends and boyfriendElise Gravel

  17. I envy people who know exactly what they want and just go for it
  18. I once entered a poetry competition and managed to get two of my poems published. Still one of the proudest moments of my life.
  19. I believe ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ can make a world of difference to someone. I honestly believe that being nice often gets your further. What you give to the world comes back to you in a certain way.
  20. I can be moved to tears by something I read or listen to.
  21. I collect stickers of cities and countries I visit.
  22. My favourite singer of all time is Gabrielle Aplin.
  23. I love people watching and making up stories that I think would suit them. I’m also incredibly talented at eavesdropping on conversations on public transport.

  25. I will never, ever, skip a sunset or sunrise if I have the option to
  26. I’ve always wanted to dye a piece of my hair purple to be a little edgy

  28. I miss Ghent and its flower market from time to time.
  29. I know exactly what I want my future house to be like. Not look like, be like.
  30. I love writing.
  31. I hate taking planes, despite loving to travel
  32. I always assume the best in people until proven otherwise. I don’t forgive easily.
  33. My friends and family will probably be able to testify that I get incredibly hangry if I don’t get food in my stomach on time. I really can’t help it. So, I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.
  34. I love trees. Especially when the sun shines through their leaves. Autumn is a magical season.
  35. I hate being cold, though I am a huge fan of Scandinavia.
  36. As a consequence of 35. I love taking baths. Preferably with a LUSH bath bomb dropped in there.
  37. I love pictures of jungle homes filled with big-leafed plants and cacti.
