So this lovely sister: Fall musings nominated me for the one lovely blog award. How lovely! 😁😂 I thought I’d finally do it ahaa.
Do check out her blog of her daily reflections which will always give you food for thought!
So the rules are:
1.) My name could have been Malaikah as opposed to Aaliyah. I was that baby that was literally called “baby” all the way until the last day when names have to be registered because my family couldn’t decide 😂 They put my name and Malaikah in a hat and everyone present had to pick one out. My name came out quite a few times and my grandfather had an “I told you so” moment because he suggested it from the beginning and wanted that name for me hahaa!
2.) I look a lot younger than my age which means I’m rarely taken seriously 😑 and the adult world thinks I’m still a child. Im short and petite too which doesn’t help that. #foreveryoung
3.) I couldn’t speak a word of English when I was young even though the only language I am currently fluent in is English. I started nursery and was getting frustrated that I couldn’t communicate with everyone and I erm…well… maybe…swore at the teacher when she was trying to get me to put my clothes on after I stripped in protest against doing whatever she told me to do. She later asked my mother what it meant and my mother with a shocked face told her ” it means nice. She likes you!”. The teacher wasn’t convinced…
4.) My favourite animal is pandas. They are so chilled out it’s impossible for me not to like them. I want a pet panda…I most likely will not get a pet panda 😒
5.) I’m an introvert but I’m not shy. A lot of people confuse the two . I come across as a quiet person (which I am) but when I speak others quickly realise I am confident and not shy and then they are confused even further. Apparently an Introvert is a quiet person which automatically means they are shy and socially awkward. I’m quiet and a little socially awkward but I’m most definitely not shy 😂
6.) I’m claustrophobic. But for me it seems to be a whole different level to just the fear of confined spaces because I don’t like anyone in close proximity to me either. Even when out walking, I hate it when I have to walk through people. My personal space zone is a little bigger than normal…
7.) I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but I love anything and everything savoury!
