Get to know me - 20 facts about me

My name is Jasmin. I'm 20 years old and I would very much like to share all my interests and passions with you.

I thought the best way for you to get to know me is to start off with a '20 facts about me' post, as it's quite hard for me to write a mega long post just about myself. I'm just gonna keep it short, with a few little infos. :)

1. I'm from Vienna and live in a quite big flat together with my boyfriend, who moved here 2 years ago. Originally he is from the UK.

2. I love cute stuff. I really, really love cute stuff. Whether to wear or just as an accessoires, I must admit, I'm a girly girl.

3. I really like pyjamas and own sooo many different ones, I wish I could wear them every day.

4. Every time I see a plane I think about how much I'd love to be on there and fly to another country, even though I'm such a scaredy-cat and there's a big drama each time.

5. We've got our own little family already. (I'm not talking about children haha!) Our family includes two adorable bunnies and two budgies.

6. Talking about our pets... I wish for nothing more than having a cat. I grew up with cats but because of special circumstances we sadly can't have one at the moment. :'(



7. Although I really enjoy living in Vienna, I often think about whether or not I want to move to another country one day. One city I fell in love with is Brighton, there's so much I love about it, it'd take another post to write about.

8. My mother language is german and I learnt english through my boyfriend. One language I'm not really keen on is french, it sounds beautiful when you're actually able to speak fluently but it's a pain to learn.

9. I have this fascination with Asia. I secretly think I’m Asian sometimes. I love rice, asian food in general and the whole culture, but back when I was younger I was really into mangas, animes, japenese and korean music and the language. I wasn't one of them girls to dress up like a lolita or anything, but it always fascinated me, still does.

10. It's a funny coincidence but my best friend is called Jasmin too. Sad thing is I haven't seen her in years, because she moved to San Francisco 3 years ago, but I don't give my hopes up on seeing her this year!

11. I'm really overcautious when it comes up for me to plan something. For example, every time my boyfriend and I went off for holidays I printed out the boarding passes 2 times and downloaded a mobile version too, just to make sure. I hate when things don’t go the way I want them to. Haha!

12. I collect nail polishes. I have way too many. I love nail polishes, yet I hardly ever use them.

13. I'm quite a shy person but as soon as I warm up and feel comfortable around people I tend to talk nonstop.

14. I used to be really fussy about my fringe. No hairdresser was allowed to touch it or go anywhere near it with their scissor. I cut it myself the whole time, but it was a kind of love-hate relationship, so it was time to let it grow out again. Not sure about how long it'll take for me to cut it again though.

15. I don't like it if my food looks ugly, especially the meat. There's no other way I could describe it. Weird, eh?

16. I'm not that much of a traveller, there are a lot of places I want to visit though. Such as Tokyo, San Francisco, New York, Barcelona, Maledives and to do a roadtrip through England and Scotland.

17. I sing when I'm on my own, but would never sing to anyone properly, not even my boyfriend!!!

18. Compared to many other people I'm not addicted to coffee. I do like my cup of hot chocolate though.

19. My favourite movies of all-time are Jurassic Park 1-3. I have all the old cassettes, the new DVD-collection, 2 PC games etc. aaah!

20. I listen to a lot of music, like I'm doing right now, whilst I'm writing this. :)

I hope you enjoyed reading this more or less personal first post about me.
