Random Facts About Me~

Hello, my feminist friends!

I’ve been seeing a lot of my blogger friends celebrating their anniversaries with their blogs, and to tell you the truth, I’m not sure when I started blogging. I’ve had several blogs over the years, and writing is something I do naturally every day.

However, I think a lot of my content does not say all the nitty-gritty details about who I am. Sure, you see my passion for feminism and coffee, but there’s much more than that. As our little family grows, I’d like to share more about the human I am.

I also find this introspective activity to be positive for me, as I take the time to reflect on some things that I love about myself.

I got this idea from my girl Jordan’s latest blog post, which you can read here. (Highly recommend!)

So, here it goes…

1. I’ve been eating a plant based diet since July 2016.

SHOCK. I know, I talk about being vegan probably insanely a lot, but I’m not sure how much I’ve actually mentioned it on my blog. I originally changed to a plant-based diet because I have always struggled with migraines, and acne and I knew cutting out dairy would help both. Then gradually, I became passionate about being vegan for other reasons, such as: the ethical treatment of animals, health, and environmental benefits. However, I am not one to try to force my diet on others, or preach about being vegan. To each their own.


2.  I collect vinyl, magnets, and coffee mugs.

Truly there is nothing better in this world then curling up with a cup of coffee and putting on your favorite Bowie record, am I right? I love collecting things, and vinyl is my favorite way to listen to any record. Coffee mugs just come with the territory, I think, and I love having magnets cover my fridge to give it a little more personality.

3. My favorite genre of music is Alternative Rock.

From Nirvana to The Used to Walk the Moon, my music taste can be a little all over the place. Follow me on Cymbal if you’re interested in that (@rosecafletic). Music is a huge part of my life, and still to this day I would love to be a music-journalist, HEY ALT PRESS, ROLLING STONE IS THAT YOU? I spend my life collecting vinyl, going to concerts, and constantly driving and listening to new songs and old. Almost all of my inspiration in life is derived from Kurt Cobain. You get the picture.

4. My favorite thing in life to do is go to concerts.

Following the music theme, you probably will catch me at a concert in Atlanta 8-10 times a year. Concerts are my happy place, and no one can take that from me. The feeling of seeing your favorite band live compares to no other.

5. I was born on Leap Day (February 29th).

YES, I am only 5-years-old. Shocking, I know.

6. I LOVE Pickles!

This is probably a weird food to call your favorite, but it is mine. For as long as I can remember people have associated pickles with me, and I have received many pickle-related gifts over the years. They’re just so good!

7. I’m a Pisces, and I kind of love it.

I guess if you’re into zodiac like I am, you probably figured out based on my birthday that I am a Pisces. If you’re a Pisces, you know what it’s like to feel intensely and be an emotional wreck. You’re a dreamer, always thinking of the future. For the most part, I agree with the personality elements of the fishes, I just also am very organized and love to make plans, which contradicts a little bit. But hey, isn’t that just part of being a human?

8. I have a baby bunny named Florence. 

Yes, like Florence and the Machine. Isn’t she precious? I’ve had her since September and she’s 5-month-old.

9. My life pretty much revolves around Star Wars.

I’ve loved Star Wars for as long as I can remember. Carrie Fisher was one of my favorite humans to walk this earth.

10. I love all things… witchy.

Such as: incense, stones, tarot, sage, candles, Stevie Nicks. In that order.
