I was recently tagged by Allison to share 20 facts about me and also tagged by Erica for the Liebster Award, which I don’t qualify for (and neither did she haha), but I’m going to answer all of her lovely questions anyway.
I guess it would ironic for me to say that I haven’t talked about myself on my blog in a long time, but in a sense, it’s kind of true. When I compare my day-to-day life to what I blog about, y’all are only getting part of the story. If I took y’all through a typical day with me, you would probably fall asleep about halfway through. Most of my day consists of me sitting at a computer, either at work or at home (with the combo of blogging and NaNoWriMo this month, I feel like I’m always glued to my screen!).
I say all that to say, I’m excited to share 20 random facts about myself with all of my lovely readers!
1// Back when MySpace was a thing in high school, I used to run a separate MySpace page for contests called Heels Over Head Contests, inspired by Boys Like Girls, who I was obsessed with at the time. It actually had quite a few entries and voters. (I wasn’t alone in doing this, okay? Tons of people had these contest sites! Haha.)
2// I’ve never broken a bone or had the chicken pox.
3// When I was in elementary school, I had a beta fish named Bob. He died after just 6 months, and he received a proper toilet bowl funeral.
4// I could eat sushi every single day of my life. Yum! (Is it morbid for me to mention this after talking about my fish?)
5// I’m a
not-so secret fangirl at best. I’m obsessed with all things Harry Potter and Supernatural, and I’m not ashamed. In January, Jon and I will be going to Houston for Supernatural Con, and I don’t know how I’m going to be able to control myself when I meet Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins. My heart rate went up just thinking about it.
6// My happy place is in the Mediterranean Sea outside of Rome.
7// I shouldn’t be allowed to meet famous (or even semi-famous) people. With Shreveport becoming known as the “Hollywood of the South,” I’ve run into famous people randomly. Amber Tamblyn, Stephen Lang, Treat Williams, and a few others I can’t think of right now. Also, to me, authors are celebrities, so meeting them is a thrill (#bookworm). Not to mention meeting James and Oliver Phelps in Dallas. I’m always awkward around famous people. I’m awkward in general, but it’s times a million when I’m meeting someone well-known. I get tongue-tied. I can’t stop smiling. I can’t control my body or the words that come out of my mouth. It’s not pretty. Tell me they’re just people all you want, but it doesn’t help. Apologizing in advance to everyone I meet at Supernatural Con.
8// My real life job is working as a sales coordinator at a dual-brand hotel. I love my co-workers, and everyday is pretty unpredictable. Working in hospitality really makes you appreciate good service everywhere you go. Another random tidbit: I was the first promotion in the hotel. We’re a new hotel that opened in 2012, and I was part of the opening team, but I was working front desk. After 8 months, I was given the opportunity to get my first ever promotion, and I jumped at the chance.
9// I take Halloween costumes very seriously. This year, I dressed up as Mr. T.
10// When I was younger, I used to think I was supposed to pee standing up. Mind you, I was living with just my dad and my brother at the time.

If you could up and go to anywhere in the world for the rest of the day, where would you go, who be your travel buddy, and what would you see/do there?
I would go to Australia with Jon. I’ve been talking for years about how I want to go to Australia, but it seems like it’s the most expensive country/continent to travel to! I would hang out with some kangaroos and koalas, learn to surf, and find a job, because I’d never leave!

Who do you think are the two most influential (guy and girl!) people in the world today?
Girl: I’d have to say Emma Watson. I love that she’s using her fame to educate people on feminism. She always so poised and beautiful and is such an amazing inspiration to everyone today.
Guy: Is it sad that I can’t think of anyone besides Emma Watson right now?

Right now – “Be Okay” by Oh Honey
If you could re-name yourself today, what would it be?
I can’t imagine being named anything but Tiffany Khyla White, but if I could change my name to Taylor Swift and actually be Taylor Swift, then I would be okay with that.

Go-to piece(s) in your wardrobe right now?
Socks, sweaters, and fleece leggings. Baby, it’s cold outside.
What are you most excited for right now?
FRIENDSGIVING! I can’t wait to most of my favorite people in one place.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
Not advice, but one of my favorite quotes: “I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.” I just love that quote by CoCo Chanel so much because it pretty much embodies how I want to think. I don’t want to think or care about what people think about me, because what matters is how I feel about myself.
Do you watch Scandal? (If not, get on that).
Scandal over everything.
