Get to know me more: seven unusual facts

As cliché as this may sound, I can’t believe that this year is about to end, as well. It’s already November and I haven’t done so much — blog-wise or even just in my personal life. Honestly, I’ve just been really unproductive and demotivated this year but enough of that drama; it has already happened and I just want to be productive today, therefore resulting to this post.

I noticed you guys love reading personal posts so why not tell you unusual facts about me?

1. I set my alarm at unusual times.

E.g.: 7:03 am, 6:28 am, et al. Let the screenshot below explain what I mean.

img_9970

Of course, I set my alarm at :00, :15 or 0:30 sometimes, but usually this happens. Don’t ask me why. Maybe I’m just that lazy girl who just lets the number on the minutes-side slide and set the alarm after on whatever number it falls down.

2. I love mayonnaise.

This only started way back 2015 when I had a housemate who’s obsessed with mayonnaise. I guess I got it from her. Now, it may not be unusual or anything for you but here’s the twist: I love it to the point where I can eat mayonnaise alone. No fries or whatever; no anything. I can even put just that on a piece of bread and eat it.

Speaking of fries, I also love dipping my fries in mayo, gravy, garlic mayo or sundae. I also like it when my fries are extra salty.

3. I can’t sleep without a blanket.

No matter how hot or cold the room is, I need a blanket.

I can’t sleep with the music on or with the lights on, either. Now, if we’re going to be roommates and you can’t sleep without the lights or music on.. Well, I can adjust with the lights and just use an eye mask but you have to adjust with the music and use earphones. In that way, we can both have a peaceful and quiet night. Are we good?

4. I can’t sleep on bus, plane, or car rides – as well.

I don’t know man. Even if it’s a 10-hour flight, no matter how hard I try to sleep, I just can’t. It’s a rare occurrence when you see me sleeping on a trip and if that happens, that’s when you know I am dead tired.

5. There isn’t a day where I didn’t dream of something.

I have dreams every single day. Dreams, plural! I dream a lot — some are intense and easy to remember and some are just vague enough that I forget about it five minutes after waking up.

I’ve also read something before and it says that if you’re dreaming, that means you’re sleeping lightly. I guess it’s true. I’m a light sleeper and you won’t have a hard time waking me up. I can wake up right at the first beat or drop of my alarm. You wanna know what my problem is? I’m a light sleeper — I get awakened by almost everything — yet it takes hours for me to sleep. Imagine how hard my sleeping life is! Inggit na inggit ako sa mga masa d’yan. Masandal tulog!

6. When I’m craving for something and I don’t know what it is, I eat salt.

W A I T! Wait. Before any of you out there reacts violently, it’s only a very small pinch of salt. After having that, I’m all good. Not craving anything anymore.

O walang violent reaction ha. Sure nga ako, lahat tayo nagpapapak ng Milo eh.

7. I can’t leave the house without putting lotion on.

I know some people who don’t even like lotion at all because it feels sticky, but then there’s me. I feel naked without putting lotion on after taking a bath. I feel like my skin’s so dry when it really isn’t. I even put lotion before heading to bed after taking a shower at night.

Not so unusual fact #8: That is one of the reasons why I love collecting Bath & Body Works products. If you’re thinking of what to give me for my birthday, ya’lready know! Any B&BW product would do. Hahaha

Currently, I have maybe more-than-a-year of B&BW stocks. Lotions, shower gels, handwash, body mist, perfume, et al. (I don’t collect anything else other than these and books.) Whenever I see a store at the mall, I feel like I have to go in there and just smell some scent. I think I love it so much that if you ask me what scent you’re wearing, I’d 75% know the answer. Hahaha. My favorite scent’s Pink Chiffon, by the way. :)


Aaand that’s it! I may be doing other stuff that’s normal for me but unusual for you, so for now, I think the list above is unusual enough. I hope we’re still friends. Hahaha! How about you? I wanna know some unusual facts about you, too!! Let’s chat in the comment section, I miss that!

Love, Amielle

  1. Bath and Body Works is my favorite place to get soaps and lotions! I’m about to have to restock for next year too. On the sleeping thing, I can’t do lights but I turn on thunderstorms. And god yes, have to have a blanket! 😀

  2. Oh my gosh I also set my alarms at odd times: 6:47, 6:13, etc. 😂 And I can’t sleep without a blanket either! I have to be very cozy before being able to ever fall asleep

  3. I don’t sleep while in transit, too, unless I’m not feeling well. Haha. Minsan kahit na wala akong tulog, kaya ko padin hindi matulog sa byahe. Feeling ko kasi pag natulog ako baka hindi na ako magising. Lols. I love that Pink Chiffon too! Hindi ako collector ng B&BW pero pag umuuwi si ate, yun ang nirerequest ko. Yun lang, allergic ako sa scents. Huhubels. Nevertheless, ginagamit ko padin bahaha

  7. Haha I’m too OCD to not have my alarm set on something like “:15, :30, :45, :00.” However, like you, I’m a light sleeper and wake up at the first sound of the alarm. And if I don’t? I must be really sick or dead tired haha. Same with sleeping in transit. I can’t do it. There’s something about subconsciously being aware that I’m not at home and that I can’t sleep the whole time that I can’t do it. I’d be too afraid of missing my stop. I can’t even sleep in the car though, just too aware of what’s going on. In the summer time, I’m not as worried about lotion, but in winter it’s my best friend. My skin dries out so fast, it’s awful! I have to put so much lotion on but it doesn’t help when I’m constantly washing my hands at work 🙈 haha. B&BW does have some amazing scents! I love their stuff, but I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed lol

    1. Sometimes, that’s what I do, too! That’s why I set it up at odd times. For example, I set it at 6:23. When I wake up, I would tell myself that I still have 7 minutes left to just stay in bed and browse through social media first. Hahaha

  9. I get the alarm totally. I am lucky now I don’t need the alarm, I have the pleasure of waking up naturally. I would have to set several alarms just in case I didn’t wake up. Which happens now when I do have to set the alarm. I also wake up every hour just in case I might sleep through it.
