10 things you never knew about me

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!

Jess is an aspiring blogger, born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. After relocating to remote Christmas Island, Australia, to be with her fiance, she became a mother for the first time. As a long-time sufferer of anxiety, Jess knew that as a mother she couldn't keep letting it take control of her life. Using the power of planning, Jess has learned how to use her passion for organisation to minimise anxiety and maximise her self-worth. Now she runs her blog, Mindful Galaxy, to bring all of these lessons straight to you so that you can live your best life.
