Common Teenage Girl Tag by a Not-So-Common Teenage Girl

by - 8:54 PM

Over the past few years I've learned a lot. One of those things is that I'm not exactly average or common. I have yet to meet another eighteen year old girl who only falls for fictional guys, drinks responsibly and has the next five years of her life completely mapped out.
However, every time I tell someone that I'm not exactly your typical teenage girl, they snort and say: 'Yeah right.' So after seeing this tag over at Bryleigh's blog, I decided to prove once and for all that I'm no common teenage girl. How am I going to prove that? By doing the Common Teenage Girl Tag.

1: Favorite Starbucks drink?
Contrary to popular belief at my old high school, I'm not a big fan of Starbucks. I've been to Starbucks five times in just as many years. The last time was when I was in Vienna and I didn't even order a drink (I just used their bathroom and ate a pastry I bought at some other place). When I do order a drink at Starbucks it's usually hot chocolate.

2. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Ten minutes at most. I grab a pair of jeans, a shirt, sweater or tank top, put it on, brush my hair and teeth and ta-da: I'm done.

3. How many selfies do you take on a daily basis?
On a daily basis? Hold on a second, I have to calculate that.
Sometimes I take selfies because I need a profile picture for my Blogger and Twitter account. I change those approximately twice a year, but I have to take a series of at least ten selfies, because I think they all suck and that way I can pick the best out of twelve. So that's 24 selfies, then the 7 I take throughout the year when I'm bored out of my mind, and the 9 I take on vacation... Add it all up... that's 40 a year, divided by 365 brings me to 0.1095890411 selfies on a daily basis.

4. How many IG followers and pics do you have?
It took me three minutes to figure out that IG stands for Instagram (it does, right?). I don't even have an account and I don't see a reason to make one.

5. Do you ever say LOL or OMG out loud?
I have, in the distant past of 2011, said OMG out loud once. Not as Oh-Em-Gee though, more like some sort of alien word. I could totally picture an alien growling "omgggggggg" at me during an invasion. The reason I said this was that a boy called Jasper started pronouncing it this way, so I asked: "Why does Jasper say OMG all the time?'. Withing a few weeks my entire class said "omggggg" with that typical Dutch G at the end.
As for LOL, yes, I still say that out loud. We don't say El-Oh-El though, we say "lol"and it's Dutch for fun. So yes, I say that out loud a lot.

6. Do you ever wear the same clothing item more than once?
Uhm, yeah?! What else do you expect me to do? Wear a shirt and throw it away? And if you mean wearing an item two days in a row, then yes, I do that. I basically live in my Batman sweater when I don't have to go to college.

7. How many tweets do you have?
540, most of them from online wizarding duels or discussions with Neal, Catalina and Bryleigh.

8. Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr?
I don't see the point of Tumblr, I'm sorry, but it's true. I just don't get it.
Instagram would be a waste of time since I only take pictures when I'm on vacation.
As for Twitter... I set the account up to promote my blog, but now I only use it to chat with blog buddies.

9. What do you spend most of your time doing?
Working on the huge amount of assignments, essays and reports I have to write. It's not much fun, but as long as I'm not a world-famous blogger, college will be my number 1 priority. One day I'll have to take care of myself, make a living, pay rent... And I can't do all that without a proper education.
When I'm not working for college, I'm working on blog posts and novels so I can make my dream of becoming a writer come true.

10. Who are your favorite YouTubers?
Why is everyone so obsessed with YouTubers these days?
I don't have any favorite YouTubers. There's one Dutch guy who has a series of videos (actually he has several series but I only like the one) and posts a new video every Thursday. I always watch those videos, but I'm not a huge fan who freaks out every time a video is posted.
Oh, and I also have a thing for the guy from YouTube Explained. Don't ask me why, just don't.

11. How often do you do your nails?
I'm not exactly keeping track of that. What does doing your nails even mean? Does clipping them count, or do you have to polish and file them too? Either way, it's not something that I do very often.

12. Are you a shopaholic?
Only when I'm in a book store.

13. How many times have you watched Mean Girls?
Never. I'm not planning on watching it either. I don't even know what it's about, so next question please!

14. Do you own a lot of clothes?
Actually, I do. I'm still wearing the same size clothes as I did four years ago, so I've accumulated a huge amount of clothes over the years. I never throw anything away, unless it's full of holes.

15. Do you take pictures of food before you eat it?
When I eat something special, like guinea pig or Sacher Torte, I take a picture. A also take a picture when I'm eating something my friends love. For example: a friend of mine is obsessed with schnitzels, so every time I eat one I send him a pic and then we joke about schnitzels for days.

16. Do you wear make up every day?
I never wear any make up. I always end up poking mascara in my own eyes. I think looking a little bit prettier is not worth the extreme pain of having a mascara brush poked into your eye...

17. What are your average grades in school?
Been a straight A student all my life. Learning and memorizing stuff is my one and only useful talent!

18. How do you usually style your hair?
Does brushing it count as styling?

19. Do you always look presentable?
Hahahahahahahahaha. No.
I wear oversized Harry Potter and superhero shirts when I don't have to go to college. I don't put much effort into doing my hear on weekends. I just don't care that much about looking presentable. The thing with me and clothes and looking presentable is that I'm not one of those people who wants to look amazing every second. I just want to be comfortable. And that cute summer dress? That's not me. Harry Potter shirt and five year old shorts, that's me. If people don't like that, it's their problem, the can look away. As long as I'm comfortable with what I'm wearing, I don't care if others think I don't look 'presentable'.

So now you've seen it, I'm not exactly average. I'm not exactly common. I may be common and average amongst bloggers, but they're not exactly common and average; they are awesome! I hope they stay that way. Stay Awesome, guys!

  1. I'm a shopaholic when it comes to bookstores! ^.^

    xoxo Morning

    1. I'm going to a huge bookstore tomorrow and I'm afraid I'll come back broke :P

  2. I love this tag so much :) I'm just like you in that I really couldn't care less what I wear as long as I'm comfortable!!

    1. More people should be like us and just wear whatever makes them feel comfortable ^.^

  3. I don't take much time to get ready either, probably the one who takes the least at home. I just grab stuff or decide a few minutes before I have to leave on what I'm going to wear. But if it's going out somewhere where I have to look EXTREMELY presentable then yes, I put in a little more effort :)
    Also, I don' get why anyone asks 'Do you wear the same clothing item more than once?'. It's not like you're going to throw it away after you wear it one time!

    1. Yeah, I put in a little more effort too when I have to look extremely presentable :) lucky for me that doesn't happen very often :P
      That question is so weird. I wonder if there are people who actually throw their clothes away after wearing them once XD

  4. I choose comfort over looking presentable at home as well but when I have to leave a house I try to look as presentable as I can. :-P
    But Batman and Harry Potter T-Shirts are always presentable :P
    Wow I feel like I tweet a lot seeing your count xD
    I don't get YouTubers crazy fan thing either it's weird and most of them are awful *coughcoughJustinBiebercoughcough* :P

    1. People here disagree with you: Batman clothes don't count as presentable clothes :(
      When I have to leave the house I try to look a little more presentable. I hate going out in sweat pants or some oversized shirts that are so big that I could make a tent out of them :P
      Yes, you tweet a lot ;) I don't, because I don't have much to say that can be said in 140 characters.
      I'm not sure if Justin Bieber counts as a YouTuber. I think this is more about the Zoella type of YouTubers.

    2. I guess it depends on your defenition of "YouTuber"

  5. This tag was a lot of fun to read! I've never ever even stood in starbucks before. I have a tendency to keep one thing on forever. Like I have these shoes I bought two years ago. Still wear them. They're a bit torn and stuff, but I just can't throw them out- they're the only pair I've ever liked in any shoe shop for two years :\

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it ^.^
      You haven't missed much if you haven't been to Starbucks ;)
      I have the same thing with a pair of shoes I bought five years ago! There's a hole in the sole now, so I can't wear them if it rains because of all the water getting in. Hope you find some new cool shoes though, two years is a long time without new awesome shoes.
