Today’s My 23rd Birthday!!!

Happy Jordan Year/ 23rd Year of Life to Me! So for my birthday, I thought I would do a Get To Know Me post. So I am going to answer a few questions about myself from tumblr. I might omit some questions due to length, but the link is there if you want to see all the questions!

What would you name your future daughter? Probably Samora after my great-great-grandmother. Also, it’s just a beautiful name. OR Khalessi, because Game of Thrones…

Do you miss anyone? Yes of course, my family and friends mean the world to me. I wish that everyone I am close with could all live in this one neighborhood/town. That way we wouldn’t have no excuses as to why we can’t see each other or hang out.

What if I told you that you were pretty? I’d say thank you very much and think about it for the next week.

Ever been told “it’s not you, it’s me”? Maybe not in those exact words, but basically yes. It kinda sucked too.

What are you looking forward to in the next week? Just getting through another week of life is pretty cool. As of right now, I don’t have any plans but I am sure that will change.

Did you go out or stay in last night? I stayed in last night.

How late did you stay up last night? I went to sleep at about 1:30 AM. Which is early for me, but I am still not where I want to be in regards to my sleep schedule.

Honestly, has anyone seen you in your underwear in the past 3 months? Nope.

What were you doing at 12:30 this afternoon? I wrote this blog post about a month before it actually came out, but I think I was eating sandwiches with my dad on the day I wrote this.

Have you ever told somebody you loved them and not actually meant it? No. I mean when I was younger I told some people that I loved them before actually knowing and experiencing true love. I know now that what I felt for them wasn’t love, but then I didn’t know the difference.

Could you go for the rest of your life without drinking alcohol? Absolutely. I only drink when my family wants to drink, otherwise, it doesn’t even cross my mind.

Have you pretended to like someone? No, not that I can remember.

Could you go the rest of your life without smoking a cigarette? Yes, I haven’t smoked a cigarette before and I don’t plan on starting.

Is there one person in your life that can always make you smile? Yes, like my immediate family.

Is it hard for you to get over someone? Yes. I think because I love so hard and give 1000% in relationships.

Think back five months ago, were you single? Yup. 🙂

Have you ever cried from being so mad? Oh yeah. I definitely have. I cry a lot these days…

Hold hands with anyone this week? With my cousin, Meagan for her birthday.

Did your last kiss take place in/on a bed? No, I think it was on a couch… It’s been a while.

Who did you last see in person? My parents.

Have you kissed three or more people in one night? No, because I’m afraid of mouth herpes.

Have you ever been to Paris? Yes! and I enjoyed every minute of it

Are you good at hiding your feelings? I don’t think so.

Do you use chap stick? Nope. I feel like it makes my lips more chapped.

Who did you last share a bed with? Uhhhh, nobody?

Were your last three kisses from the same person? I believe so.

How is your heart lately? To be honest, it is all over the place. But slowly i’m getting back to where I need to be.

Do you wear the hood on your hoodie? Not very often. Almost never actually.

When was the last time a member of the opposite sex hugged you? Probably Sunday at church…

What do people call you? Most people call me Tanesha or ‘Nesha. My family has an exclusive nickname for me though.

Have you ever wanted to tell someone something but didn’t? Oh yes, I do this all the time especially if I am not sure how they are going to take what I want to tell them. I try to avoid hurting people’s feelings at all costs.

Are there any stressful situations in your life? Yes, my entire life is a bucket of stress right now. I will say that I am getting better at managing my stress levels and just giving the situations over to God.

What are you listening to right now? The TV, it sounds like some horror movie… I can’t look because I’ll be scared.

Love really is a beautiful thing huh? I think so. Love is so beautiful to me.

Do you make wishes at 11:11? I did a lot in high school… I’m not sure why I fell off with doing it.

What is on your wrists right now? My beloved apple watch on one wrist, and my Pandora bracelet and Alex & Ani bracelet on the other.

Are you single/taken/heartbroken/confused/waiting for the unexpected? I’m single, not so much heartbroken anymore.

Where did you get the shirt/sweatshirt you’re wearing? I got this shirt from the Hampton Versus Howard football game – September 2015.

Do you miss the way things were six months ago? Yes sort of. I wrote this in November, so 6 months ago was in May. The beginning of May was so lit with the end of senior week, and graduation.

Would you rather sleep with someone else or alone? I prefer to sleep with someone else. I love nap dates. 🙂

Have you ever been to New York? Yes, I have been! I didn’t like it.

 Think of the last person who said I love you, do you think they meant it? I’m pretty sure it was one of my parents, and so yes I think they meant it.


Hope you all enjoyed getting to know me a little better! Love you all bunches!
