60 Useless Facts About Me

60 Useless Facts About Me

Ok, so I’ve been talking to a lot of you on Instagram recently and one thing I noticed is that a lot of you wanted to know (rightfully so) who I am as a person. Upon this realization I scrolled through my past posts and realized that I never actually post about myself. So, I decided to write this article. Also, as a side note, this is my official re-launch of the site because from here on out I will be posting every week. Without further adieu, here it is: 60 useless facts about me.


  1. I really love photography but didn’t start practicing it until this past summer when I went on my road trip and got my new camera. I did, however, get my first camera using my own money when I was nine. It was a Bloggie and I bought it because I wanted to be a Youtuber.

    A photo I took in Quebec City, Canada that I’m really proud of.
  2. My favorite animals are cats. I like domesticated cats the most because they are fluffy and adorable, but I also love snow leopards, lynxes, sand cats, and cheetahs.
