There’s a *Share 5 Random facts about you* tag going around on Instagram at the moment. Friends tag each other and in turn we share 5 Random facts about ourselves. Even though I shared these 5 random facts already on my Instagram page I wanted to share them with you as well.

See one of my goals for 2018 is to open up a little bit more to you and get to know each other better. So why not start here?

5 Random facts about me:

  • I am socially awkward and shy.
    • A lot of people – especially if you watch my Youtube Channel – would beg to differ with this statement but believe me it is true. I am that person who wants to blend in during social gatherings because I am low key freaking out. I think it’s mostly because I am really bad at making small talk. I never really know what to say and as a result, I give short answers which always make the conversation awkward and uncomfortable. It doesn’t help that I am also shy. Barely make eye contact and if I do, my palms are sweaty for YEARS. The struggle is real.
  • I have an irrational fear of failure.
    • You know how they say failure is just another stepping store to success……or whatever they say? Well, to me, failure is boarder line deadly. Okay, that’s a little exaggerated because I would take my life as a result of failure, but i’m sure you get the point. I take pride in EVERYTHING I do. I go the extra mile and to be honest, I always expect positive results. My glass is NEVER half empty. So when I come across failure, my spirit gets crashed. I find it hard to get out of that phase and turn failure into success. Eventually I do, in some cases, but it just really takes a while. This is one of the reasons why I get very uncomfortable saying my dreams/goals out loud. It’s 7 times harder to recover when EVERYONE knows what i’m going through.
  • My shoulder to feet/Knees coordination is REALLY bad.
    • For someone who really loves to dance, this is a complete blow! I swear trying to dance randomly to a jamming song is NOT something that comes naturally to me. My shoulders constantly pull left and my feet/knees pull to the exact opposite direction. It’s actually quite sad to watch. So I only do it at home with my daughter, who surprisingly enough has very good coordination; and my boyfriend, whom like me, has ZERO coordination.
  • I was a Latin American Dancer at 1 point in my life.
    • Yes, yes! this is contradicting point 3 but it is TRUE. Back in 2011 & 2012, I took Latin American Dance classes and I absolutely loved it. I even entered a competition at one point. This however came with a load of work. I had to put in extra effort to cover the shortfall of my bad coordination and to make sure that the routine is seamless. Like I said, I have an irrational fear of failure so there was no way I was going to mess up my dance routine.
  • I went through 9 long hours of excruciating labour pains only to end up with an emergency C-section to give birth to my daughter.
    • I have a very low threshold for pain. I am that girl who hyper ventilates before getting blood drawn. But I was so determined to deliver my daughter with no pain medication. It took me 10 long months – and a little more (overdue baby) – to get myself prepared for the pain of labour and boy was I ready. It wasn’t fun but I went through it. I was determined to do it and so I tried. Turns out Little Miss Kbear had other plans in mind. So we ended up with an emergency c-section, a happy healthy baby, and a lot more pain to soldier through (C-section was rough for me).

Those are 5 random facts about me. There’s obviously a whole lot more but the tag asked for 5. Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little more.

I tag you to share 1 or maybe 2 random facts about you in the comments below. Let’s get to know each other.

    I have about 4 if not 5 journals, which serve different purposes.
    I believe in writing down any and every thought and dream.. prayer journal, gratitude journal, day to day journal, planning and strategy journal..etc

    • olerato says:

      Girrrrrrl, writing things down is simply the way of life…so calming too. How do you manage the many journals though. I get so ocd with journals it literally drives me cray. I obsess with the writing, and how the writing is done. So now I have just 1 journal/planner and I write pretty much everything there. I don’t like to start writing on a new journal while the other one still got free pages. Also tried using a weekly planner but it almost drove me nuts too because I hated having blank days….the struggle…LOL….It was really nice getting to know a bit more about you…xoxo

  • stephanie videira says:

    1. i am slightly ocd
    2. i am a lover of writing list’s – things to buy, things to get done etc

    • olerato says:

      OMW, that is so me. I spent probably 70% of my time over the weekend at home wiping kitchen counters because in my head, there’s dust settling there all day. You should see my *AnyDo* app….packed with *to-not forget list* …*to-do at work*….*to-do after work*….it’s funny sometimes. But it’s necessary,right? That’s how we keep organised. It was nice to know you a lil more…xoxo
