17 Little-Known Facts About Me That You Didn’t Want To Know (Or Maybe You Did)

For some reason, people really liked learning more about me.

Last February, one of the posts I wrote was “25 Facts About Me,” and it was pretty popular, as you can tell. Since then, I haven’t seemed to talk about myself much, which is clearly a tragedy for all.

So, I decided to write up seventeen facts about myself, in honor of the fact that I’m seventeen years old at the moment. And that’s basically it.

(And if you must know, yes, that’s my dog blocking my bookshelf in the featured image. She’s a keeper. You can see her actual face in my other facts about me post.)

[TAG] Who The Heck Am I?


So, it’s that time of month for yet another tag! I’ve been nominated for so many tags recently, but this was the one that interested me the most, obviously! A huge thanks to Puput over at Sparkling Letters for nominating me; you can check out her answers over here!

1. What does your name mean?

I actually already know what my name means, but it’s “feminine of Michael, which means gift from God.” So, move over, everyone, I’m God’s gift!

2. What is your Myers-Briggs personality type?

Okay, so I got MEDIATOR (INFP-T), which is funny, because the first time I took this a while back, I got the same thing, except it was INFP-J. I don’t know if there’s a difference or not.

Apparently we’re only 4% of the population. WE’RE DYING.

We listen to many people, but talk few. That’s 100% true for me.

Some famous mediators: Shakespeare, J.R.R. Tolkien, Johnny Depp (???), Julia Roberts, Lisa Kudrow, Tom Hiddleston (!!!), Alicia Keys, Anne of Green Gables, Frodo Baggins, Fox Mulder


Idealistic. This is very true for me. I do think people are inherently good, which is funny, because I’m taught 384028402 times in my Christian school that people are inherently sinful and bad. Rage against the machine!

Seek and Value Harmony. I don’t like people fighting, and I would love to live in a peaceful world. And I definitely do like hearing other people’s opinions on things.

Open-minded and Flexible. Quite true. I do believe that people are free to do whatever as long as they’re hurting others, and I’ve actually changed my mind on a fair number of social issues (I used to think gay people shouldn’t get married, abortion should be outlawed, and that global warming wasn’t real. Obviously, I was a hot mess).

Very Creative. Oh, yeah, literally all my time thinking is spent in la-la land. I can drift off and forget what I’m even doing a lot of the time. It’s probably why I like reading so much.

Passionate and Energetic. Yep, I think the amount of time I’ve put into blogging and bookstagram can attest to that.

Dedicated and Hard-Working. Mm, it depends. Like, right now, I’m a hot mess when it comes to studying for school, but if we’re talking about blogging, I literally sat down for an hour and planned out all my blog posts through April 2018. I’m months ahead on my fully written blog posts. I try to make time to do bookstagram photo shoots. So, it all goes back to passion.

Too Idealistic. This is very true. I dream too much, and sometimes get disappointed when things don’t go my way, which is why I quit a lot of things.


Too Altruistic. Hm, I don’t know about this one.

Impractical. Okay, so it says that I might forget to eat and drink because I’m so far into my head, but that never happens. I get headaches and my stomach hurts horrifically if I don’t eat for long. So, untrue!

Dislike Dealing with Data. “When the facts and data contradict their ideals, it can be a real challenge for them.” This is so me (though I don’t think this happens too much).

Take Things Personally. This is so true, which is probably why I don’t get caught up in debates and don’t bother getting into conflict. I just avoid it because I’m not in the mood to deal with people who take things so seriously they start insulting others.

Difficult to Get to Know. I don’t know about this one. I am reserved in real life, for sure, but on the Internet, I feel more comfortable talking about myself. I think it’s mostly because my ideas/opinions are more liberal, and I live in a conservative state and go to a Christian conservative school, while the Internet is more progressive, I guess?

3. What is your zodiac sign?


Strengths: Generous, idealistic, great sense of humor

Weaknesses: Promises more than can deliver, very impatient, will say anything no matter how undiplomatic

Likes: Freedom, travel, philosophy, being outdoors

Dislikes: Clingy people, being constrained, off-the-wall theories, details

This further teaches me that zodiac signs are BS, because apparently, I’m supposed to be extroverted, optimistic, enthusiastic, and likes change. I’m apparently able to transform my ambitions into concrete ideas and I’ll do anything to achieve my goals. In real life I’m an introvert, I’m highly pessimistic, it depends on what I’m enthusiastic on, and I don’t know if I like change??? I am very impatient, though, so there’s that.

4. What Hogwarts house would you be in?


Haha, I got Hufflepuff??? Which is 100% not me. I’m a Ravenclaw through and through; I don’t care what this quiz tells me. My second highest in terms of results was Ravenclaw, though, so that’s interesting.

5. What are your learning styles?

I actually took this exact test last year but I totally forgot my results. So, I apparently have a multi-modal learning preference.

Visual – 10

Aural – 6

Read/Write – 9

Kinesthetic – 7

That’s definitely right. I’m going to apply this to math since that’s my toughest subject to learn. Listening to something explained to me doesn’t work, but seeing someone work out the problems or having me solve some problems really helps.

6. Are you more of a left-brain or right-brain person?

It says I use my brain equally, but the left side is 59%, and the right is 41%. I think I should be more right-brained if we’re linking up to the words, but whatever.

7. What is your blood type?

I don’t know, and I don’t care unless I’m bleeding out at the moment.

8. What career are you meant to be in?

I got Writer, like I thought I’d get! I don’t really want to write too much anymore, but, hey, blogging is a form of writing, right? I don’t really take a Playbuzz quiz too seriously, though.

9. What Divergent faction do you belong in?


Surprise, surprise, I belong in Erudite. I do like education, and I think ignorance is what stems a lot of hate and conflict, so I think it’s very important. And then there’s the fact that I could rant about the education system all day long, BUT LET’S NOT GET INTO IT.

(Also, I 100% chose the “Clear eyes, full heart, can’t lose” life motto because I love Friday Night Lights.)

10. What does your birth order say about you?

So, there’s only one more sibling in my house, so just by being the older sister, I’m the firstborn. Apparently, I’m supposed to be ambitious, responsible, and a natural leader. I honestly don’t feel like any of those things are true.

Okay, so this was a really fun tag to do! I’ve learned a lot about me throughout this entire thing, and this was super fun to do, so I hope it was just as fun to read!

Again, like with most tags, feel free to do this one if you want to! I’d love to see your answers!

let's chat

Do we have any answers in common? Do you think your Hogwarts house is correct according to this quiz?

25 Facts About Me


So, I find it hilarious that you guys know my favorite book and series and what I read per month, but you don’t even know when my birthday is! So, I thought it’d be nice to have a sort of “Get to Know the Bookworm” post so you can learn more about me and my personality!

On to the facts!


(1) I am sixteen years old. Yes, I’m a teenager! And, yes, sometimes I abandon my studies for reading and blogging! I mean, it’s a bad plan, but my grades are pretty okay, so what’s the harm?

(2) My birthday is December 7. I was born on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. My mom was born on April Fools’ Day, my dad on the Ides of March (the day Julius Caesar was stabbed), and my brother on St. Patrick’s Day. So, my entire family was born on holidays.

(3) My favorite TV show ever is a tie between Queer as Folk and Black Mirror. Other TV shows I love: Supernatural, Friday Night Lights, Hannibal, Looking, Sense8, Orange is the New Black, Daredevil, Teen Wolf, Eyewitness, In the Flesh, Banshee, Spartacus, Gravity Falls, How to Get Away with Murder, Hell’s Kitchen, Mr. Robot.


(4) My binging abilities actually pass into more than one category. I suck at finishing/catching up on TV series. It’s a huge problem, obviously.

(6) My favorite movies include Inception, Gone Girl, District 9, Hush, You’re Next, Don’t Breathe, Se7en, Would You Rather, Exam, The Circle, The Edge of Tomorrow, I Am Legend, Nocturnal Animals, The Edge of Seventeen.

(7) My favorite Marvel superhero is Captain America. Close second is Deadpool. Yes, it’s highly ironic that those two couldn’t be any more different.

(8) I literally just got into Marvel last year. My first Marvel movie was Deadpool, then I watched the Iron Man trilogy, and then watched the Captain America trilogy. I still have yet to watch the Avengers movies, the Thor movies, Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men movies, or Ant-Man, but I’m slowly catching up!

(9) When I was ten, I got hit in the head with a golf club. Like, a real one. I was running past while someone was swinging, and got hit. I had to get stitches, and if you ever see me up close, you can still see a faint scar. Fun memories.

(10) I don’t like chocolate. Or bacon. Or ice cream. Or watermelon. Or grapes. Or mac and cheese. I know, I know; I’m a monster.

(11) My house is Ravenclaw. I’ve only taken a couple of quizzes, but I’m a highly imaginative person and super creative (at least, I think I am), so I’m pretty sure I know.


(12) I have a dog named Ginger. She’s a lab-golden retriever mix, and we’ve had her for four years. She chewed up our TV remote when she was little, and now she just chews through her toys because she has zero understanding of how toys work. She also likes playing in snow, and sitting in front of the fireplace whenever we turn it on.

LEFT: Ginger as a puppy, RIGHT: Ginger now

(13) I have a weird interest in True Crime. I’m pretty sure my obsession started because I fell in love with mysteries/thrillers last year, and just grew the more I watched Buzzfeed Unsolved (which is the only thing I watch from Buzzfeed) and the ABC show 20/20. I’d never like to work in forensics or anything because seeing dead bodies and dealing with psychopaths is not my jam, but it interests me!

(14) I consider myself a Christian, but I’m liberal. Yep, they clash a lot. And my liberal side wins most of the time, to be honest.

(15) At Mellow Mushroom (which is my favorite restaurant ever), I order my cheese pizza without sauce. I know it’s weird, but I hate saucy pizza, and it actually tastes scrumptious, so I recommend!

(16) When I grow up, I want to either be a screenwriter or work in publishing somewhere. I’m leaning more towards publishing because I haven’t written something for fun in years, but I have so many stories in my head that I’d just love to get out of there.

(17) I don’t have braces yet. I should because I have the worst overbite on this very earth, but I’m probably going to get them this year. I’ll be that lame girl wearing braces in college.

(18) I haven’t watched Game of Thrones yet. Okay, so I’ve watched a couple of episodes, but then I got distracted one episode and didn’t catch what was going on, and I haven’t watched it since. It was good while I was watching it, though, so I’m definitely going to try to catch up!


(19) Some artists/bands I enjoy: OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Lorde, Ariana Grande, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers, Sohn, Halsey, Bridgit Mendler, Zedd, Zayn, DNCE, Ellie Goulding, Ruelle, Galantis, Major Lazer, Lindsey Stirling, Pentatonix, Sia, Shawn Mendes, Troye Sivan, X Ambassadors, Flume.


(20) My favorite song ever is a tie between Elastic Hearts by Sia and The Unknown by Dirty South. LISTEN TO THEM.


(21) Guys I crush on: all the Chrises in the Marvel Industry, Michael Fassbender, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Hugh Dancy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Sebastian Stan, Matt Bomer, Mads Mikkelsen, Idris Elba, the entire cast of Sense8…

(22) I’m the biggest introvert alive. I’m also shy. And a little bit socially anxious. It’s a fantastic combination in a world that’s loud and desires extroverts.

(23) I currently live in North Carolina. It’s sort of become a trashy state over the year, but, you know, it’s where I live. I want to move to California, New York, or Europe some day, depending on my job.

(24) Like most people, I love Youtube. The channels I watch that aren’t Booktube-related are Pewdiepie, jacksepticeye, CinemaSins, ScreenJunkies, Facts., Philip DeFranco (and his other channel Philly D, TheMostPopularGirls (which doesn’t update much), Don’t Hug Me .I’m Scared (again, doesn’t update much), the Fine Bros., LastWeekTonight, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Obviously, my tastes are all over the place, and I don’t like watching full episodes of late night politically-centered talk shows, only segments.

(25) I’m obsessed with the Game Show Network and the Food Network Channel. I don’t know why, but I just do. I don’t care how formulaic each episode is, it’s just so fun to watch.


And those are 25 facts about me that aren’t related to books! I hope you got to learn a little bit more about me (or we found some things in common)! I really need to do more posts like this.
