| 50 Questions I've Never Been Asked Tag |



Hey guys! I wasn't planning on having a post up today but I was tagged by Char from forgedopulence.wordpress.com to do the 50 Questions I've Never Been Asked Tag and I was so excited to do this! I love tags like this, they're fun and different! Be sure to check out Char's blog and of course, check her out on twitter too @ForgedOpulence !



50 Questions I've Never Been Asked




1. What is your favorite candle scent?

I don't have a specific smell I prefer, I actually really like switching up scents a lot. 

2. Which female celebrity do you wish was your sister?

lol wut? Such an odd question. I really admire Cara Delevingne because she's absolutely gorgeous, super funny, and an all around amazing person, so it would be pretty cool to have her as a sister.

3. Which male celebrity do you wish was your brother?

I don't know, somebody funny?

4. How old do you think you'll be when you get married?

I always thought all I wanted in life was to be married and have kids, I had plans to marry at 23 and have kids at 26. Now I'm kind of more focused on living my life and doing what I want. I do want to get married someday but I'm in no rush really.

5. Do you know a hoarder?

I know people who hoard stuff, but I don't know if I know an actual hoarder.

6. Can you do the splits?

What a strange way to phrase this. I can't do a full split, but I am pretty flexible.

7. How old were you when you learned to ride a bike?

With or without training wheels? I learned how to ride a bike with two wheels when I was like 6 or 7. 

8. How many oceans have you swam in?

Just the Atlantic ocean.

9. How many countries have you visited?

I haven't done anywhere near as much travelling as I want to, but so far I've been to 4 countries; Canada, Puerto Rico, Antigua, and Barbados.

10. Is anyone in your family in the army?

Not currently. I have relatives who were in the army in the past though.

11. What would you name your daughter if you had one?

Choosing a girls name that I like has always been super hard for me. I have a few ideas, but I'm keeping them a secret!

12. What would you name your son if you had one?

Elvis! Not even joking, I decided on this name for my future son a while ago and I still love it. 

13. What's the worst grade you've got on a test?

15% on a Trigonometry test. I did horrible in that class! I've always been bad at math but I really believe that it was bad teaching that caused me to do so poorly in trig.

14. What was your favorite TV show as a kid?

This is a tough one, I had a lot of favorite TV shows when I was younger. I loved Lambchop and Bananas in Pajamas when I was really little. When I was around 7 I started to get into Anime and of course that's when my love for Dragon Ball Z started. 

15. What did you dress up as for Halloween when you were 8? 

I can't remember exactly, I'm sure if I looked for pictures or asked my mom I could find out. I remember one year when I was around 8 I was really sick on Halloween and I couldn't go out Trick-Or-Treating. :(

16. Have you read any of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, or Twilight series?

I read Harry Potter when I was younger, like in 4th or 5th grade I think and I didn't like it, I still don't honestly. I never read Twilight or Hunger Games but I've seen the movies and I'm not a big fan of those either.

17. Would you rather have an American or British Accent?

I'm happy with my Long Island accent thank you very much. 

18. Did your mother go to University?

Yes she did.

19. Are your grandparents still married?

I only met both of my grandmas, who are unfortunately no longer here. My grandfathers both passed before I was born. 

20. Have you ever taken Karate lessons?

Nope!

21. Do you know who Kermit the Frog is?

Yes? These questions really are weird haha!

22. What was the first amusement park you went to?

Does Disney World count as an amusement park? I just feel like it's in its own category..

23. What language, besides your native language, would you like to be fluent in?

Probably Italian. I took it for 6 years in school and I can read, write, and understand it fine, I just can't speak it!

24. Do you spell the color as grey or gray?

Gray, but sometimes I switch it up.

25. Is your father bald?

Nope! He has a full head of hair!

26. Do you know any triplets?

I went to school with a few sets of triplets. Wild.

27. Do you prefer Titanic or The Notebook?

Titanic, obviously. The Notebook has nothing on Titanic.

28. Have you ever had Indian food?

No, I'm a really picky eater so I don't really try much outside of my comfort zone.

29. What's the name of your favorite restaurant?

I don't have one specific favorite restaurant.

30. Have you ever been to Nandos?

No, I don't know what that is. Wait, isn't Nandos a meme or something from a couple years ago?

31. Do you belong to any warehouse stores? (Costco, Bookers, etc..)

No. I wanted a Costco membership but I have no storage space so I can't really be buying stuff in bulk. 

32. What would your parents have named you if you were the opposite gender?

I'm almost 100% sure my name would have been Christian if I were a boy.

33. If you have a nickname, what is it?

My full name is Alexandra. My close family calls me Alex and everyone else calls me Ali.

34. Who is your favorite person in the world?

Matt. He drives me absolutely crazy but he's an amazing person too. My all time fave.

35. Would you rather live in the countryside or the city?

I'm a city girl. I'm an hour away from NYC and every time I'm there, as cliche as it sounds, I feel like I'm home. I would love to live in the city or maybe even move to LA. 

36. Can you whistle?

Yeah, I can whistle a little.

37. Do you sleep with a nightlight?

I can't sleep in the dark, I'm terrified of the dark. I usually just sleep with the TV on. 

38. Do you eat breakfast every morning?

Breakfast food is my favorite food so I try to find a way to eat breakfast every morning. If I can't eat a full breakfast at home, I bring something with me.

39. What medical conditions do you have?

I have a heart murmur. It's nothing but an irregular heartbeat and mine is asymptomatic, meaning it doesn't effect me at all. There is a small chance that it could possibly become an issue for me, but as for right now it's pretty much nothing. 

40. How many times have you been to the hospital?

Twice. Once when I went swimming in a pool, I swam to the bottom, banged my chin on the pool floor and had to get stitches. 
The other time was because I strained a muscle in my knee, my knee caps pop out of place and they usually just pop back in, (super gross, I know). This time around though it was happening a lot and the muscle was getting pulled too much. They just took an X-ray, gave me a brace, and I couldn't work for two weeks. 

41. Have you ever seen Finding Nemo?

Yes, my mom bought it for us as soon as it came out on DVD!

42. Where do you buy your jeans?

Ugh jeans, such a challenge to buy. I really like American Eagle jeans and I have a few pairs of Calvin Klein jeans that I'm obsessed with. As long as the jeans fit good, I'll buy them anywhere though. 

43. What was the last compliment you got?

Matt said "big butt" to me as I walked past him earlier today, so I guess we can count that as a compliment.

44. Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning?

First off, I have the weirdest dreams. They're not totally out there, but more like real-life situations that end up being weird. Sometimes I remember my dreams in the morning, but usually I'll remember part of it and as the day goes on I remember other parts of it. 

45. What flavor tea do you enjoy?

I hate tea.

46. How many pair of shoes do you own?

30? 40? 50? I don't know and I'm not about to get up to count them, although now i'm actually curious. 

47. What religion will you raise your children to practice?

I haven't really thought much about this. 

48. How old were you when you found out Santa wasn't real?

I have older sisters, so of course I always had a *feeling* Santa wasn't real. It was confirmed at some point, I have no idea how old I was though, maybe 7 or 8?

49. Why do you have a blog?

I started my blog a little over a year ago because I loved watching YouTube videos but I didn't have a camera to film any of my own. I've always been good at writing and I love it so I went for it and it was the best decision I have ever made. I love having a place where I can be creative and pretty much do whatever I want.

50. Name 5 of your favorite albums ever

Tough one.
1. Hot Fuss - The Killers
2. From Under the Cork Tree - Fall Out Boy
3. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge - My Chemical Romance
I can't really think of anymore. I love music and I'm into so many different types, it's hard to choose 5 favorites.


This was pretty fun, it felt like those old Facebook surveys everyone used to take years ago!
