20 Random Facts About Me

29.5.15


Here are a few random things about me (in no particular order):

1. I have a scar under my left eyebrow. I was around 5 years old when I had a nightmare and decided to go my parents' bedroom. I didn't want to wake anyone up so I just slept beside my mom with little space. Without knowing I was there, she moved which made me fall off the bed and hit the bedside table. The funny thing is that she just put me in the middle of the bed and I slept while bleeding. When she woke up, she thought I wet the bed until she took me to the bathroom and realised I was bleeding instead.

2. I have a phobia of animals. I freak out whenever I see a dog or cat around me. Here in Dubai, pets aren't allowed indoors like in restaurants and malls so I'm not used to having them around me all the time or seeing them often.

3. I love to read and I would rather spend my money on books than clothes. 

4. I actually never liked reading until 2013. I attempted to read a book by Jacqueline Wilson and another by Meg Cabot for two years and I never finished reading them.

5. My favorite TV show is The Vampire Diaries, it has been for about 3 years and it will continue being my favorite. 

6. This one relates to fact number 5. My blog name was inspired by the town in Vampire Diaries, Mystic Falls.

7. I am an introvert. I find happiness and comfort in staying home most weekends watching a TV show and reading a book instead of going out to a mall packed with so many people.

8. I am a huge lover of romance novels and movies.

9. I probably didn't watch any of your all-time favorite movies like The Breakfast Club or 10 Things I Hate About You because the quality of the old movies puts me off from watching it. No matter how much people love these movies, I'm not able to get myself to watch them. I also do not like historical books. 

10. I have a fear of insects. THEY'RE FREAKY.

11. My favorite color is coquelicot (orangey-red)

12. I am a very indecisive person. I constantly need to ask others about their opinions in order to make a decision.

13. I'm nosy and curious.

14. Favorite type of food: Italian and Chinese.

15. I am the worst at crying at the movies and TV shows. 

16. I get super grumpy and emotional when I'm tired. 

17. I don't like wearing jewelry, it makes me so uncomfortable.

18. I am a very impatient person. The more impatient I get, the angrier.

19. I lived in Germany for 4 to 5 years then moved to Dubai. I've been here ever since and I'm most likely moving back this summer. 

20. I can't study Maths or Chemistry without music.

  4. I'm with you on 3, 7, 13 and 18. Maybe #9 too, but I can't say I don't like historical books; it's just that I don't really hit it off with historical fiction. I'd like to try watching old movies that they say are really good, but yeah, the old movie vibe makes me cry. I like my movies crisp and clear. LOL :D

    And wow, your blog's practically a newborn but you have tons of Bloglovin followers! Yay! ^__^ Really liked your name, Yousra! :)

  16. I enjoy reading posts like this. I also wrote the similar one a couple of days ago. By the way, №9 is the opposite for me. I've recently started to watch all-time favorite classic movies, because there are too many special effects in modern ones, and everything feels so unrealistic.

  19. We are so alike! Haha Though we do have our slight difference obv, like I've never watched Vampire Diaries. I think I was going to watch either that or True Blood, and in the end went for True Blood. Maybe because Vampire Diaries was marketed as "Twilight for TV" too much? Lol And I used to be the same about old movies! And then I watched Casablanca, and I understood the fuss haha x

  31. Haha I'm nosy too. At work whenever someone gets a delivery I have to sneak a peek at what it is. Jewellery makes me feel uncomfortable too. I can handle wearing some small stud earrings but I can't wear anything heavy.
