16 Facts You Didn’t Know About Me (also confetti because BLOGIVERSARY)


And spring is coming!!!

There’s been a lot of good life happening here lately, as always. Packed schedule + hardly getting any school done :P + we got sick and got well again + birthday in three days whoop + driving practice + planning on going to go get my learner’s permit finalllllly + so many books to read I’m drowning in it (a very nice kind of drowning) + I GOT A CUTE POLAROID CAMERA and now I’m totally going to be that friend who has to take annoying group photos at every event.

Okay. Now for the announcement. Ahem.

Today Important Nothings is celebrating ONE YEAR!!!

Which is thrilling!! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging this long; I still feel so inexperienced and I’m still trying to figure a lot of things out. But much time and thought has gone into my little blog, and it’s undergone a lot of changes since I started. I kind of like it. :))

I’m still working on coming up with original, one-of-a-kind post ideas (it’s harder than it seems like it would be), and I want to post more often but I don’t know if I’ll ever work up the motivation. Tbh it’s amazing that I’ve actually managed to get into the consistent schedule I have…


On with it, then. This post was inspired by Ella Marie’s tag (which was fabulous), I’ve just tweaked the idea a bit. I’m doing it less like a tag and more like a stand-alone post, but anyone who wants to steal it it turn is completely welcome to.


16 Facts You Didn’t Know About Me *

*if you did know one or two of these, comment below. congratulations human, you know me well.



I have a weird condition called Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS); it basically means I am unable to eat any raw fruits, vegetables, or nuts. None.

It’s fine. It’s not like I wanted to be healthy anyway.

I have six siblings. Five brothers (ages eleven, ten, eight, six, and four), and the most adorable of sisters (she’s one). We’re all homeschooled.



Eyes and hands are my favorite body parts. I have a fascination with both… that sounds weird… But I am weird, heh. The first thing I’ll notice about you is your eyes, and then I’ll usually look at your hands. They’re the parts I find most attractive about humans (besides cute smiles. ahhhh). I love how everyones’ are so profoundly unique. You can tell a lot about someone by their eyes and their hands.



Speaking of eyes, I can’t stand anything gross related to eyes. Ugh. Even the concept of contacts is weird to me. Which is great because I think I’ll need them eventually.



I am officially that dog dork. I will unashamedly [squeal and] run over to pet dogs I see in public.



I cannot math. The brain – it does not work that way. Cannot.

(And believe it or not that deficiency is especially fun now that I’m in advanced arithmetic. Everyday mental breakdown yesss.)



I’m neither Team Pancake nor Team Waffle because I love all breakfasty foods and can’t choose between them. *drools on computer keyboard*



Apparently I LOVE to embarrass myself. Though for some reason I wasn’t informed about this??? Stupid mistakes/blunders and conversational trip-ups. Awkward moments to end all awkward moments. The occasional massively clumsy incident (i’m usually of the pretty graceful variety, except when lots of people are watching of course. OF COURSE).



I’m not afraid of many things, but spiders really trip me out. They look evil. C’mon, WE ALL KNOW THEY’RE EVIL.



And then I’m a bit claustrophobic. But I think those are my only serious fears.



This is sad, but two of the funniest things to me are 1) seeing people fall down stairs, and 2) the look on peoples’ faces when they realize they’re falling out of a chair.

Also making sure they’re okay is good. I also do that.



I’m a ridiculous grammar freak. Just ask my family. Three mistakes in particular that make me grit my teeth:

  • “Emily’s and I’s” – UGH.
  • “There’s a lot of them” – THERE’RE, people. Nobody uses there’re anymore. I mean??
  • “Your sweet” – ……. screams into the abyss.



I grew up for the most part in Georgia, then we moved to Greenville SC when I was thirteen. And here we are. I love it a lot. :)



I have this weird ability to pick things up with my toes. Anything narrow enough to fit between them, really. I use it when I’m cleaning a lot, and I’ve gotten pretty skilled.

Please don’t judge.



I may or may not be slightly obsessed with Myers-Briggs typing. But you should take the test. Seriously. Right now. Go on, go do that.



If you compliment me (not even a phenomenal compliment, just something sweet and random like about my personality or my face), I will melt into a small happy puddle on the spot and I promise I’ll remember it for years.




What does your February look like? Did you know any of the facts (seriously, I’m curious)?? Leave a comment below!

  1. Your sarcasm. Is. Priceless.

    Happy blogiversary, Olivia! I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and I’ve loved every single one of the posts I’ve read!! Looking forward to more. :D

    Saaaaaame about the math. Brain. Cannot. Compute. And I’m a grammar freak too – IT’S WONDERFUL TO MEET ANOTHER OF MY KIND! Those examples you gave… shudders


    • Thank you so much; your comment made me laugh and made my day. And YOU LIKE MY POSTS. I’M SO GLAD EEP. :)) Thank you!!
      Hahahah, I think that’s the same for a lot of people. Your strong point is either numbers or words, not both. Lol. :P


  2. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!! I am so happy you did the tag! hugs I can also pick things up with my toes, hate spiders and am very claustrophobic. And the your vs you’re. Ugh. I hate when they’re used wrongly. Happy early birthday! It’s the 5th, right? Mine is the 3rd! We’re almost twins!

    • Yesss, it was fun!
      My birthday’s the fourth; thanks. Happy birthday to you as well! I have a friend whose birthday is also the third, so that’s neat.

  3. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY MY DEAR FRIEND. And also happy early birthday (: I can’t believe how old we’re going to be this year. I’m right behind you. Tell me how it feels. ; ) I still miss you, you know.

    I knew exactly half of these facts. Ha.

    YOU’RE GETTING YOUR LEARNER’S? We’ll all be in our twenties and you’ll probably be the only one of us who has your license. Good luck!

    Ohh goodness this just brings back memories. Now I’m sentimental and will probably spend 823190.3 hours looking through old photos.

    Anyway. This is long enough already. Love you, dear Olivia, and I hope your birthday is amazing. I wish I could tell you in person. You’re a beautiful, incredibly talented girl and I’m so happy to be your friend.

  4. Oh year??? That’s amazing!!! Whoo-hoo!!! confetti

    I’m a bit claustrophobic too, actually. Mostly after an incident of getting lost in a closet. I’m not scared of the dark, just cramped places and being trapped…

    But I actually guessed that you were a Myers-Briggs kinda gal, since that was one of the first questions you asked me… XD


  5. It has been waaayyy too long since I’ve been on your blog. This post is awesome! I love reading new facts about people! I’m a dog dork, too. I won’t go up and pet one right away. I usually wait for my sister because she’s that type of person. She’ll pet one and I’ll follow her lead. XD

    Or when there’s a giant dog I’ll be like, “Look at the cute puppy.”

    Happy blogoversary!! That’s so exciting!! <3
