For those of you who don’t know me – Hi! I’m Jess.
I own and run Mindful Galaxy, welcome!
I’ve decided to create a blog post so that you can get to know me a little bit better, and hopefully, I can get to know you better as well.
10 things you never knew about me
1. I am an avid gamer
I loveeee gaming, I met my fiance on a video game and it is our favourite way to spend time together as a couple.
At the moment we are playing Ark, an open-world game in which you wander around and survive a land of dinosaurs and other random creatures.
It’s a lot of fun!
I am a 31-year-old mother who runs a lifestyle blog, but gaming is something I don’t think I’ll ever give up.
2. I love to crochet and cross stitch
Crafting has always been a big part of my life, and my two favourite crafting hobbies are crochet and cross-stitch.
Unfortunately, being a mother of a toddler who runs a lifestyle blog and loves to game, I don’t have as much time for it as I would like.
3. I believe in God
This is something that a lot of people don’t actually know about me. I keep it to myself and within the privacy of my own home.
I know that religion can be a touchy subject for some, so I choose to keep it out of my general conversations (and blog posts)
4. I prefer my coffee to be cold
And not just because I am a mother who had no choice.
Even if it’s not an iced coffee, I prefer it cold!
5. I can’t stand people who are rude to shop staff
Shop assistants, waitresses, the lady working in the ISP call centre. It doesn’t matter who they are, I am a firm believer that they deserve our respect just as much as anybody else.
When I see or hear somebody being rude, it boils my blood!
6. I don’t know how to swim
As much as I’ve tried, I just can’t swim! I literally couldn’t swim to save my life.
I can bob around, float and enjoy my time in the water, but that is as far as my water abilities go!
7. I have “vampire teeth” due to a crowded mouth
Well, that’s what I call them!
I actually really dislike my teeth, but they are also kind of cool and have definitely become a big part of who I am
I’ve considered getting them removed but right now I am on the fence about it! What do you think?
8. I love to go to the zoo
I would go to the zoo every month of the year if I could!
I love seeing the animals, and hearing about all of the work the zookeepers put into preserving our precious wildlife.
9. I love raw broccoli
Ever since I was a young child, I have loved eating broccoli raw!
I hate it when it is cooked unless it is steamed and crunchy, or in a deliciously creamy cheese sauce – Yum!
10. I have alopecia
This is the biggest thing I am going to confess here today or any other day!
When I was 17 I was diagnosed with alopecia. It has had a huge effect on my entire life and is a giant source of my anxiety.
I will touch more on this topic in future, but for now, this is a huge step for me – writing it for the world to see!
There you have it!
Now that you know 10 new, weird and scary things about me – let me know something awesome and unique about you!
