10 Facts About Me | #teenblogseries

Hello Internet | If you have been following me on twitter (which you should), you would know for the past few weeks there has been a big teen blogger collaboration called the #teenblogseries. Which I literally joined yesterday. 

It was created by the ever so talented, Anouska and Beth. A big thank you to them for letting me join so late. A post from the #teenblogseries will be posted every Monday at 6:30 PM for ten weeks . A nice way to brighten up an ever-so lame Monday. 

This week's theme is '10 Facts About Me,' which are just some simple deep dark secrets facts about me. I have done a '12 Facts About Me,' which is from earlier this year, which you can read here. If you are an old reader, let's see what you don't know and if your new, let's get acquainted.

Hello! My name is Laila (Lay-La) // and I am 16 years old. I am currently a junior in HS and I have to say I like so far, but not love. I am taking a few classes that are smaller in number making it a more relaxed environment. Along with lunch and study hall straight in a row makes my day pretty chill. Though I like it, I am excited to move on and graduate in two years. Though, I am really going to miss being a kid ;_;

I can't swim // I never have been bothered by the fact I can't swim. I know the gist of the techniques because I took swim classes at my rec center when I was younger, but I failed the class. Basically, if you are with me and you are drowning, don't ask me to help you because we will both end up dead.

I am in my High School Marching Band //  I am a fellow bando, who plays the alto saxophone. I am last chair because I never practice or really memorize my band music. So, don't ask me for lessons;) I really like it because it helped me make more friends and give me a place to belong. It also got me out of my 'I want to be popular' phase from Middle School (dark times). 

I have a very 'Go-With-The-Flow' personality // I am very 'stop and smell the roses' type of person and don't like to be rushed into anything. Then again, I do not like to be obsessive over what everyone else is doing, I like to do my own thing. I know people who literally pop out of the womb like 'Okay, first I am going to drink a lot of pediasure to get strong bones, get on the honor roll, attend Harvard....' I don't really know how to explain it, but a person I would hang with is Claire Marshall, Amy Pham, and Jenn Im. If you want a chill person to hang with, hit me up. 

I wake up to have coffee // I am a fan of coffee, literally it gives me life when I am dead in the morning. I don't have coffee on a school morning because (A) it is too much work (B) I don't trust myself to walk around school with coffee. During school, coffee can be used as a weapon.

I am not good at anything // As sad as it sounds, it is true! I have not found anything I am good at or passionate about. I spend hours on my blog and it is something I am passionate about, but I don't think I am that good. I think it is ok because I want to find my calling or career after High School, when I am more mature and have my life more in order.

I want to adopt when I am older // Fast-forward thirty years in the future, when I am married (hopefully). I would love to adopt children into my family. There are so many children in the world who don't have a home and think they should have a home.

I am 16 and I do not have a license // I want to get my license, but I am very scared of driving on the road. I need to get my temps and do my classes. My goal is to have my license by senior year, so I can drive in style (lol, what style?).

I love being nice // I acknowledge I am nice to the point I am a complete push-over. If I know you and you need money, I will give it to you because I hate to see people disappointed. Hopefully, I can use this to my advantage in the business world. If you need advice or some help, no matter what it is, I will love to help you.

I love art!! // I am not much of an artist, but I love looking at art. I love anime and nature styled art, so if you make art, SEND IT TO ME!!! I will hang it in my room and tweet it/instagram it ^_^

If you are a part of the #teenblogseries, please leave the link to your post below! Even if your not a part of it, but did the same post, link it below. I would love talking to all you guys.

But before you go....I have created a blog survey to get a rough idea of the people who read my blog and to see how I can improve it. Please, if you can, take the time to fill it out here. It will only take a few minutes and help me a great deal!

Thanks for reading-XOXO
