10 Awesome Facts about Me

Personal

I have always enjoyed reading clickbaity, Buzzfed-esque 10things about me posts! Here is my first attempt (its not gonna be my last, I love the simple, self-centered, trashy high it leaves me with!)

  1. I’m a morning person. If I sleep until 8 am I panic and feel like I’m wasting the day away.  
  2. I used to be a party girl out every weekend. NowI don’t really drink alcohol.
  3. Although I am clownishly clumsy, I have never broken a bone.
  4. My favourite animals are whales. Nothing beats aFriday night watching listening to David Attenborough narrate about these majestic creatures.
  5. I LOVE the ocean. I spent my childhood summers on the beach so I always feel like I’m home when I’m by the ocean.  
  6. I’m a fiddlehead who loves making messes almost as much as I love yelling at my boyfriend to clean them up!
  7. I am incredibly clumsy and am always breaking electronics. My phone has a giant crack in it and I recently stepped on my boyfriend’s Ipad, cracking the glass screen (not sure how much longer I’m gonna have a boyfriend…)
  8. I have been to the Danish Music festival“Roskilde Festival” 7 times in a row.
  9. I used to be prejudiced towards Americans and anything to do with the Unites States. Now I’m moving there to marry an American –Prejudice never gets you anywhere! 
  10. I like working with kids but whenever I see a green, snotty nose I want to puke and crawl into a cave far away from any children.

If you have any fun facts about yourself please share in the comments! It’s always fun to read!

10 benefits I have experienced by switching to a vegan diet

Veganism
  1. My energy levels have increased a lot. I rarely have a day where I feel like I’m tired and have low energy.
  2. I’m eating healthier. As a vegan it’s important to get the correct nutrients which means eating a variety of foods. Lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and high fiber grains.
  3. It’s easier to stick to a healthy diet due to the lack of vegan junk food in stores. 7/11 does have a small selection of vegan snacks but most of them are healthy with clean ingredients.
  4. I can eat more. It’s hard putting on weight on a wholesome vegan diet. You have to eat more often. I love that I don’t have to worry about my portions sizes or number of snacks.
  5. My taste buds have changed, so vegetables and fruits taste much better than they did before. All my sugar cravings are satisfied by fruit.
  6. I never have the feeling of being too full, which I often did as a meat eater.
  7. I have found myself in a new and interesting field. I have dived head first into veganism and all the self-education and self-improvement that comes with it.
  8. I’m becoming a better cook by discovering different kinds of food. Different vegan foods taste amazing and I keep surprising myself.
  9. I have a clear conscience. I don’t support any company engaged in animal cruelty. It feels great to take moral responsibility for myself and my actions towards our planet.
  10. Veganism has given me more confidence. When I started I kept it a secret because I was afraid of other peoples judgment and prejudice. I’m getting braver and more confident by sticking up for myself and greeting people’s opinions and questions with an open mind.
