You definitely don’t know these 10 things about me. Number one, because we’ve probably never met. And number two, because this is my first blog post! I wanted my first post to be something that introduces me to you. I hope you enjoy!
1. I’m a senior.
I go to a small high school in Connecticut. As an ironically self-proclaimed ‘edgy teen’, I really don’t like it. Thankfully, next year is college.
2. I want to major in something weird.
Since I will be attending college next year (not sure which one yet!), I have a semblance of what I want to study there. I have been applying as a classics major. I would love to focus on the language aspect of it, but I’m also really interested in comparative mythology.
3. I applied to 21 schools. Yes, 21.
If you were to ask any of my friends the biggest thing about me, they would probably say that I’m addicted to applying to college. It’s honestly ridiculous how many I’ve applied to. Thank god the January deadlines are coming up soon. (I do still have some to send out, because YOLO, amirite.) So far, I’ve been accepted to 6 of 6 early action schools: Bard, Clark, Fordham, Howard, Mills, and UMass Amherst.
4. I have two younger brothers.
This is something that you definitely need to know about me. I have a 14-year-old brother, who goes to high school with me. We have a typical sibling relationship, I think. Maybe a bit more hostile. But my other brother is five. It causes some issues, but we get along pretty well for the most part. He is addicted to watching Youtube videos, and he loves Minecraft and Five Nights at Freddy’s (weird, I know.)
5. I love concerts.
Well, at least I did. My sophomore year of high school, I went to 14 concerts. I really can’t say I have the time anymore to go to these events. But when I do, I have a great time.
6. I am the President/Dictator for Life of my school’s National Latin Honors Society and Latin Club
7. I’m a barista at Starbucks!
I love my job, especially the free Spotify premium. However, I don’t love the uniforms and the fact that my skin breaks out every time after working.
8. I have a boyfriend.
He’s kind of a genius. Besides that, he’s great.
9. My most listened to song for the past 5 years has been by The 1975.
Unfortunate. I really don’t know how this keeps happening- I feel like I don’t listen to them that much. If anything, it should be by Bastille, or Catfish and the Bottlemen.
10. I use Tumblr.
I’ve been on Tumblr for 6 years, and it’s a really hard habit to break. I had a lot of followers there, and companies would send me products to review and promote to my follower base. Although I hope I can be that successful on this platform, I’m really doing this for myself.
