TAG: Get Your Freak On!.. No seriously.

16 Oct

Okay so I know this is a little early in my blogging career to start speaking about my odd traits. But I stumbled across this year-old video by Jen from FrmHeadToToe, and found it to be super interesting! I can’t help but to answer these questions myself.

Okay to here are the questions:

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
This may not be an obvious one because my real name isn’t actually Rean. It’s Catherina.
In saying that, variations of “Cat” has come about. But one of the most common ones that only my family call be by is “Meow”. i.e. the sound that a cat makes. But there’s usually a Chinese slant to the pronunciation.

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
Weird habits, let’s see. This might not be that weird, but I tend to scrunch up my nose on a regular basis. Rabbit like.
I have no idea why I do it. It’s not that my face is a little itchy or I’m feeling uncomfortable. People have just picked up that motion at random times of the day, whilst I’m not even aware I’m doing it!
I guess that’s pretty weird.

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Oh yeah I definitely do. I think it’s called “Trypaphobia”.
You might find it a little odd that I can’t even be sure of the spelling, but it’s because I don’t want to Google it!
Basically it’s the fear of things like bee hives and honeycomb, or anything with an odd punctured look to it. I’ve heard that some people are even afraid of the way crumpets look, but I don’t think the phobia to that degree.

I have only ever tried to Google it once – when I realised that something must be a little odd about how I shudder when I see things of the like. And that has deterred me from ever searching it up again! Damn Google and their efficiency. There are always sample images of your search topic, right at the top of the page!
Don’t exactly want a reaction just from searching on Google…

#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?
Uh… I don’t have a favourite really. But anything with love beautiful notes that can test out my vocals, e.g. Isn’t She Lovely – Stevie Wonder. 😉

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
I am one super organised individual. EVERYTHING has to be placed and used in chronological order. Everything has to be formatted correctly. And everything need to have proper grammar! I CANNOT stand it when my documents aren’t properly filed by the relevant naming convention, or a new tub of butter is opened before the old is finished!

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?
I have recently started noticing that I bite my lip when nervous. Especially when driving…

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
If the bed is against the wall, I refuse to sleep along the inside. I must have the opportunity to hang my limbs over the edge of the bed. Obviously I’m a super woman and am not afraid of the Boogie Monster.
It’s the open space that lures me.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal & it’s name?
Not so much animal, my first stuffed toy was a dolly. Her name was Dolly.
I must say judging from other bloggers’ TAG videos, children aren’t very original are they?

#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
Did someone say GREEN TEA FRAPPUCCINO?! Why would you get anything else?

#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
“You should always brush your hair frequently.” I mean I do, but not daily… I tend to brush my hair only after I give it a wash. Is that bad?!

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Face forward. I love the feeling of the shower head beating water down your face.

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?
Unfortunately I lack in this department. The only thing that is marginally interesting would being able to fold my tongue… But half the world can do that.

#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?
Who could deny some good old hot chips with a dollop of tomato sauce on the side? – for those in the US, let’s call it ketchup.

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?
I do tend to say ‘perfect’ even if I don’t find the situation perfect… it’s a little misleading isn’t it?
Or something else I tend to do is repeat myself. “Lovelove” “Questionquestion”. The list goes on.

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
Those t-shirts and leggings you really love but are a little too old to wear out into public anymore? Well that’s my sleepwear right there.

Well I hope that gives a little bit more insight to who I am! I know this is about a year late and granted this TAG would’ve fizzled out by the time someone comes around to read this post. But it was definitely fun writing it!

Now go search up Trypaphobia and tell me whether I’ve spelt it right.

Lovelove. Rean.
