11 Random Facts About Me

1. Shy and introverted my whole life. I would literally freeze up and not be able to speak because I was so shy. But things got better in uni - I guess just because I was getting older. I'm still a really quiet person in general now, but I'm a lot more confident in interacting with people~

2. I really dislike orange flavoured candies - I have no idea why! But I love orange juice

3. I graduated university with a Bachelor's Degree (Tourism Management & Public Relations) and a Post Graduate Diploma (Writing, Editing, & Publishing), but I'm not doing anything with either qualification just yet :(

4. I'm currently the manager of a fashion retail store, but my contract ends in 2 weeks time

5. I've had one of my ears pierced 4 times (same spot) throughout my life - it's gotten infected every single time - the other ear only had to be re-pierced once

6. I get cucumbers and zucchinis mixed up a lot 0.o

7. My ideal job? Working for a Public Relations Agency, specialising in beauty of course, lol. Dealing with PR reps as a beauty blogger has piqued my interest in this field, especially since I majored in Public Relations at university

8. I'm single. I tell everyone that it's by choice, but secretly I am a little lonely. I can come off a bit cold because of my shyness, so maybe that's why I'm not approachable to guys *shrugs* 

9. I loathe going to the dentist - just loathe it. I'd rather get a vaccination instead of going to a dental check up, lol

10. I wish I had started blogging earlier than I did 

11. One of my weird fears is choking on a fish bone - I literally gag just at the mere thought of it...and what an awkward way to conclude today's post :P

Sorry it's not the most interesting post, nor beauty related - work is really rough at the moment so I'm literally just flopping into bed as soon as I get home lately T.T

But I shall be working on a lot of beauty reviews, as well as replying to your comments, this weekend, so bear with me!

  1. some of the facts are so me XD
    ever since blogging, i started to think that PR is a nice job, i wonder why I didn't major in that when i was in college >.<
    Yeah it can happen. Sometimes i feel lonely too :p

  2. I love these kinda posts so don't be sorry! I found it very interesting :)
    We're actually pretty similar! I'm quite introvert too. I was a quiet kid, now I can be outgoing when needed but sometimes I feel a little fake when doing this ^^"
    And omg the whole not doing anything to do with your degree!! I recently graduated and stress about this so much! I struggle to tell myself this but just remember that you gained other skills too asides from your subject so it's OK if you end up working in a different field. Best of luck with getting your ideal job though! It'd defo be a bonus using you degree c:

  3. Not silly, super cute
    Im not shy or introverted and I couldn't imagine my life that way. But I do love my alone time and really, really need it. I dont really like people actually. But I'm not afraid to meet new people or anything. Maybe join a club or something like that? It would seem that in the PR business you'd probably need to be open to meeting new people and groups though... hmmm

  4. Great post! And nice to know more about u :) we are pretty much the same on being introvert as i just prefer being alone rather than always hanging out with a huge crowd where u migh not even know all their name >_<~ i graduated marketing because i love how great brands cook up their strategies but my work now is not even related to what i want and have took up in uni ;(

  5. this one is a lovely post,Peggy! Wow you have finished your post graduate?? I thought you were 18 or max 20 y.o, you look so young *envy*!

  6. I hate orange flavored candies too! Actually, orange flavored anything... lol.
    I also thought you were really young! It's so cool that you've already graduated :O

  7. My mum has the same fear of bones as you do! Otherwise I hope you'll meet someone nice soon and that you'll get your dream job. :)

  8. I only picked PR on a whim - I was interested in Tourism at the time and needed something to go with it >.<
    Glad to know I'm not the only one! Being single's not a bad thing, but sometimes it's hard when everyone else I know has someone~

  9. Thanks Jing Jing, I'm glad it was interesting ^^
    Sometimes we need to be more outgoing, just to put us out there! I regret not battling my shyness earlier, it could've saved me a lot of angst, but I guess in my case it just came with age.
    It's kind of crazy how you're expected to choose a career path at such a young age - I actually just picked my degree on a whim, I hadn't a clue what I wanted to do, and what I chose sounded interesting so I went for it - luckily I did end up mostly enjoying the courses! Hehe I will try to remind myself! Thanks <3

  10. Thank you Lili ^^
    I regret letting my shyness/introverted nature consume most of my childhood & teenagehood I feel like I missed out on a lot! But I can't go back so I can only act more confident from now on.
    Yes, that's one part of PR business that I didn't like, part of why I lost a little interest in it as a career path back at uni - but it's become interesting again ever since I started blogging!

  11. Thank you Janet <3
    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's a little introverted. Huge crowds have never appealed to me!
    Life doesn't work out the way we want it to sometimes huh? But we're still young, we can always switch careers given the change ^^

  12. Thank you Pam! <3
    Yes I have! Aww really?! Hehe I haven't been 18 for a long time now >.< Though sometimes I still feel it cos I can be quite immature!

  13. Haha, everytime I eat skittles there's always only the orange ones left in the packet >.<
    I guess I look younger because I can be pretty immature and childish sometimes!

  14. Yeah there's something about bones that just wigs me out! Aww, thank you! <3

  15. I can definitely relate to the fear of choking thing. It happened to a friend of mine during dinner and I was there. I saw everything :-s
