12 Random Facts About Me

For this post we’re getting personal. I’ll be digging into the life of Chevany (me) and pulling out 12 random yet interesting facts. 



Earlier this week I realized that I’ve had this blog for little over a month and I am yet to really introduce myself to you guys. You’ve probably read one or more of my posts, and some of you know me in person but that’s it. So how much do you guys really know about me? I’m not talking about the basics like my favorite color or food because anyone can guess that just by hanging out with me.

I saw a bunch of other writers posting similar articles but theirs had 30 to 100 random facts about themselves. I decided that 12 would be an easier number to manage but I could barely find 5 interesting facts about myself. Isn’t that sad? That shows that even though we’re living our lives one day at a time we don’t really know ourselves. Or maybe it’s just me. Who knows?

My aim writing this post was to not only list the facts but also explain each of them using examples to make them interesting or appealing to everyone reading.

Like I said before I was stuck on 5 facts for a couple hours. I seriously couldn’t think of anything interesting about myself. I even started wondering if my life was really this lame or if I was just a boring person. I ended up calling my significant other (you’ll hear about him soon) for help  and searching through tons of blogs for inspiration.

I finally started thinking deeply and I ended up with 12 points which I had to double check with my boo to see if they made sense. 

And so, here we are!

12 Random Facts About Me  


1. I will rewatch one movie a million times with my friends
This might be a common thing for everyone but let me explain. If I watch a movie and I think it’s either really good, hilarious, horrible or extremely interesting I immediately want to share it with my friends. I don’t just share it with them in a text or word of mouth, I prefer to rewatch it with them to see their reactions. This is because I want to see if their reactions to certain scenes or the entire movie are similar to mine. If I’m the only one that does this then I’m just weird.

2.  I sometimes go days without combing my hair
I’ve said this before but I’m kinda lazy. I love my natural hair but it can be a lot of work so most days I just cover it with a bonnet and let whatever can happen happen. I might oil it or add moisturizer if I need to go out but otherwise I will wear my bonnet for the entire day. Maybe a week. Whichever comes first.

3. I love to eat
When I say I love to eat I mean I LOVE to eat. Most of my day is spent thinking about what I’m going to eat for lunch or dinner. At the same time I might be looking at different recipes on Instagram or watching the food network. I even watched an anime that was all about cooking. Best believe my mind went crazy because I couldn’t make them myself or even go somewhere to try them. Another thing is that whenever I do go out to eat I end up getting a lot and I mean A LOT. This summer it was my goal to visit as many restaurants as possible so I spent US$50 from each paycheck at each restaurant.

4. I can never finish a full plate of food
My stomach doesn’t work too well because I had a stomach virus earlier this year so my appetite changed a bit. I still crave certain foods and always want to try new things but my stomach just can’t handle it anymore. Because of this I almost always have to leave some of my meal for later (no matter what it is). Even though I’m better I still find myself opting out of getting anything big or heavy for fear that I might relapse. I think I’m breaking out of the habit but that’s taking its own sweet time.

5. I prefer listening to the radio than music on my phone
This is because I never know what song is coming next and it’s like having a personal dj. We all know by now that even when we put our phones on shuffle there are certain songs that end up repeating. It may not be immediately but I’m kinda tired of hearing Bruno Mars - 24K Magic three times in one hour. The songs on the radio are already mixed and there are different channels for various genres so all I have to do is sit back and let it play.

6. I don’t have favorites of anything
This might seem odd but I don’t have a favorite food, color, song or singer. What I like just depends on how I’m feeling at certain points of the day. I might say blue is my favorite color but majority of my clothes are pink or purple. My favorite food might be sandwiches but I only eat sandwiches once a month. That’s why whenever anyone asks I just say I don’t have favorites.

7. I prefer to cook for others than for myself
If I had to depend solely on myself for food I’d probably end up starving because my laziness would win . I’m more likely to eat snacks or easy to make items than to cook a full meal. Like I said earlier I can’t finish a plate of food and I find it hard to cook in small portions so it would be a waste of time for me. When it comes to other people I actually get excited about cooking and always try to tweak a recipe or try new ones.

8. I’m an introvert that loves to talk
There’s a saying that goes


“Different people bring out different aspects of ones and personality” - Trevor Dunn. 

In my case this means that I reflect the traits of people I interact with. So if I’m by myself I’m super quiet but if I’m with the right people or in the right environment once I get started there’s no stopping me. I can keep a conversation going for hours as long as I’m interested in the topic.

9. I may be book smart but I’m slow when it comes to everything else; jokes and everyday references
I’m almost always lost in a conversation. Sometimes or possibly most times I somehow end up missing certain parts of a conversation. I think it’s because my attention span is really short so I either zone out or only tune in at the end of the conversation. So a lot of things fly over my head without me realizing. I’d like to apologize to anyone who had to experience this; I’ll try to do better. Sorry guys.

10.  I’m the type of person that will hire someone to fix a problem, watch them do it so I can learn what to do and then never hire them again
Is that a bad thing? It’s mainly because I like to be hands-on with things and it’s another thing I can add to my imaginary list of skills. I guess that makes me a jack of all trades now that I think about it. Also, I don’t like being a damsel in distress because my family raised me to be an independent woman so why hire a man when I can do it myself?

I'm the best, I'm awesome, 12 Random Facts About Chevy, Let's get back to business, Self care, me, time, listening, Black girl, blog, natural hair, natural hair care, blogging @Chevytakesthemic


11. I'm very inquisitive and I love a good argument/debate
I don’t think people have enough meaningful conversations regularly so I try to get a good conversation in at least once a week. By a good conversation I mean one that allows people to do serious thinking, use facts and have a good ‘argument’. I also find myself disagreeing with someone’s point just for fun and because it pushes them to try harder to defend their point/position.


12. I’m a hopeless romantic.
When I was younger I used to read a lot of romance novels and wish that I could experience similar things. As I got older I decided that just in case I can’t find anyone to do them for me I’ll do these things for them. So I do things like writing and mailing letters to him, I sent him some flowers once, and I recently decided to create a scrapbook to record all our adventures. I also try to remember every detail of our relationship like important dates so that we can celebrate all of them. Some of you might think that the girl shouldn’t be doing all of this but I actually don’t mind (sometimes) because it’s a way for me to live out my fairytale. The only difference is this time I’m the prince.

    Hi, Chevy! Great post! I completely relate with preferring to make food for others. I just made some chocolate chip cookies for my friends, and it was much more fun than making them for myself! :)

  3. I rather not speak when I am upset �� Why? I don’t mind apologizing if I’m wrong but sometimes things said can’t be ammended once it’s out no matter how many times you apologize so if I can avoid apologizing it’s best to shut it
