24 Things You May Not Know About Me

Here’s to the ‘twenty somethings’!

As I edge closer and closer to the years I will probably start to purposefully neglect mentioning my age, I can’t help but feel excited over growing older. I have no idea why. Let’s hope that just like Serena Williams, I’ll be too busy living an even more spectacular life of black excellence that I won’t feel the need to keep track of menial things like age. I’ve made a list of 24 miscellaneous fun facts about yours truly.

Here’s to the ‘twenty somethings’!

1. I’m obsessed with all things celestial. Astronomy is my secret passion. Aspired to work for NASA at a point.

2. For the longest time I wanted to be a lawyer. This was originally inspired by Legally Blonde. Don’t judge me. No pun intended!

3. I love singing. I used to upload singing videos onto YouTube a very long time ago. The YouTube page is still somewhere out there in the vast interwebs. Unfortunately I will not share the link lest your ears bleed to death.

4. I’m a burger kind of girl. Miss ‘tried and tested’. Take me to a Michelin 3-star restaurant and I’ll probably try order a burger first.

5. Lizards & geckos’ make me nervous.

6. I’m scared of the dark but absolutely love and live for horror movies. What can I say? I’m a masochist!

7. I have an incurable need for speed. Love cars, fast cars.

8. 70% of the time I get ready I get all dressed up, to go nowhere in particular. Lana Del Rey fans will appreciate this.

9. I almost always get stopped and searched at airport security (domestic and international). I think my bones contain various contraband.

10. I’m a loner and prefer it that way too.

11. My closest friends are my high school friends some even primary school. Say it with me now; “no new friends.” No offence to my new friends.

12. Reality TV = guilty pleasure. Praying that soon said guilty pleasure will be buying property and wealthy things like that.

13. On the note of guilty pleasures, I’m building an addiction to online shopping. Soon I will not walk into a store ever again.

14. I’m super self-conscious sometimes but somehow that translates as self-confidence to other humans. I suppose that’s not a bad thing after all.

15. I have the attention span of a donut. My mind is always racing onto the next thing.

16. My cousin was my Matric dance date #foreveralone.

17. I used to get gold certificates from the National Arts Festival for creative writing. I’m quite the fictional writer thanks to my imagination that never fails me. I low-key wanted to be the next Roald Dahl.

18. Biltong, Sour Worms, Salt & Vinegar Pringles, Cinnamon rolls, Wine and I’m all yours.

19. Low-key (very low-key) scared of large bodies of water. I think it’s more of a respect thing though.

20. I’m a pretty good baker but I don’t bake often. I would just rather not be in a kitchen altogether.

21. Almost got into a car accident because of this balloon. See pictures.

22. I hate phone calls. The sound of my phone ringing makes me anxious so it’s on vibrate or silent most of the time which means regrettably (sometimes) I miss phone calls. Also not the best ‘texter’ in the world. Certain messages don’t warrant an immediate response and I feel that that’s okay.

23. My nickname is Lulu. I was Lorato before I was Lerato. Long story!

24. I low-key don’t like being in front of the camera.
