25 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I wanted to do something a bit different this week. I thought it would be fun to make a list of some random things about me. Those who’ve known me a long time might recognize most of the things on this list and those who are just getting to know me can learn about some of my quirks. I picked 25 at random. I had to do a lot of thinking to find 25 things to talk about. Enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment to let me know which of these you already knew about me and which ones surprised you. xoxo

  1. Rammie is a nickname from my middle name Seyram. It was first given to me by a friend in high school and then another friend in college came up with the same nickname. It was meant to be.
  2. I am a first child and a middle child.
  3. I love shoes – flats, pumps, wedges, booties etc. Someday I want to have a walk in closet full of shoes.
  4. Growing up, I thought I would be a doctor. A paediatrician to be specific. All throughout elementary school and maybe later. My dad would write Dr. before my names on my exercise books. Some days, I wonder if I should have pursued that childhood dream. But then I realized, I don’t like being in hospitals and it makes me sad to see sick children.
  5. I love children – someday I want a house-full of them (Not really, but at least 5 – I would love to have 3 and adopt 2)
  6. Friendship means a lot to me and I LOVE all my friends dearly. My circle of friends keeps getting bigger and although I’m not able to stay in touch with all of them as regularly as I would like, they’re always in my heart and on my mind.
  7. I’m a believer in retail therapy. My favourite stores (that aren’t bookstores) are Victoria’s Secret, Express, DSW and Ulta Beauty. I love me a good sale
  8. Once I discovered the wonder that is lipstick, there was no going back. From nudes to reds to blues.
  9. I’m allergic to exercise. Not kidding, it’s an actual thing. You can look it up (exercise-induced urticaria/cholinergic urticaria)
  10. I only let my hair down around people I’m truly comfortable with. I’m an outgoing introvert, so depending on when you first meet me, you might think I’m a social butterfly or reserved.
  11. Once upon a time I spoke Arabic fluently. I would love to re-learn it.
  12. I cry at movies. Even the happy ones and especially if there are children in it. It’s so embarrassing when I watch movies on planes.
  13. My family is the most important thing in my life.
  14. I want to learn how to pole dance.
  15. My 29th birthday party is one of my favourite memories.
  16. I have watched almost all of Audrey Hepburn’s movies. I can’t pick a favourite. They’re all so good.
  17. I used to be terrified of dogs. Who am I kidding, I still am. Kinda, especially the hyper ones. I’m not a fan of cats either. Sorry to all the animal lovers.
  18. If I were to ever have a pet, it’ll be fish.
  19. I want to travel the world, then again who doesn’t. The top two countries on my travel bucket list are South Korea and Italy.
  20. I’m addicted to Korean dramas. They are so good. Before you judge, you should watch one.
  21. I don’t know how to swim. I want to learn how to someday but the thought of it makes me nervous (I had a panic attack during a swimming lesson in college so I’m a bit hesitant to get back into a pool)
  22. I love to sing. I was in the school choir for 8 years (5th grade through 12th grade)
  23. The very first concert I attended was a Kanye concert in Paris. I was part of a school exchange program. John Legend opened for him. I didn’t really know who either one of them was until I found out I was going to attend his concert.
  24. My biggest pet peeve (when I was in the US) was people telling me how good my English was. One, why are you assuming that my English wouldn’t be good? Two, what am I supposed to say in response? Thank you? No, I don’t think so.
  25. In another life, I would love to be a bestselling author
