A Co-Blogger Introductory

Posted December 14, 2016 by Anissa in Features, Mad Talk // Personal / 15 Comments

Howdy, all you lovely readers! Before you start asking ‘Who is this strange person that is writing this message?’ and thinking that you must have come to the wrong blog, let me ease your worries. Hello *waves* my name is Anissa and I’m one of the new co-bloggers for Of Wonderland! Roll in the parade!

No? Not feeling it? Whatever then. I’ll just take a virtual high-five. I’m cool like that.

Anyhoo, before I start rambling uncontrollably, why don’t we start off with a proper introduction by telling you guys a little bit about myself? I usually don’t like talking about myself unless asked or prompted but this is an exception because you guys are all awesome and I really want you all to know a little about me. So, let’s do that classic Ten Random Facts About Me list but more bookish. READ ONWARD!

Fact #1: I’m WAY obsessed with Divergent

In case some of you aren’t fans of the series, I’ll refrain from fangirling too hard over my favorite series but just know they are my babies, I’ve read the series three times, annually and I will forever treasure the series because it introduced me to the amazing genre of sci-fi and dystopian and for that I’ll be forever grateful.

Fact #2: I’m pretty creative

I’m an art student and I’m almost always thinking about some new sketch or painting I really want to put on a canvas. I also love writing and hope to publish my own book one day. I usually post my artwork on social media such as Instagram and my writing is usually posted on Wattpad. I’m currently working on a new book that I hope to start editing in January or February so let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Fact #3: I’m literally addicted to coffee and music

I’m actually drinking a big cup of coffee while listening to music blasting through my headphones as I write this post up. I’m dedicated. I usually drink about three cups of the glorious drink a day, I know it’s not healthy but whatever! I’m not even kidding when I say my headphones are ALWAYS on my ears and I’m constantly looking for a new track to jam out to. I don’t care who sings it, if it’s the newest and hottest thing, GIVE ME A CATCHY BEAT AND LEAVE ME ALONE. At the moment, I’m pretty obsessed with my caramel cappuccino coffee mix and BTS. It’s concerning.

Fact #4: I LOVE Disney!!!

Disney, all day every day. I have to say my favorite movie is probably either Big Hero 6 or Zootopia. My favorite princess is Mulan because she’s tough and kick-butt and my favorite all-time Disney character is Fix-It Felix because he’s SO FREAKING CUTE!

Fact #5: I have WAY too many fictional boyfriends . . .

Like, waaaaaaaay too many. Apparently, authors just love to pick on us fangirls like ‘LOL, you love him but he’ll never exist #takethat’. RUDE. I think my top three would have to be Four, Prince Kai, and probably Minho. Oh, be still my heart.

Fact #6: I don’t like TV.

You’re probably wondering if I’m from a different planet because of this fact. It’s true, I don’t like watching TV. Not only because it’s hard for me to find shows that catch my attention but also because I just don’t like watching TV in general. I don’t know why, I just don’t like it. There are literally only three TV shows I keep up with and even then, I put off watching the newest episodes because I’m weird. Movies are more my jam.

Fact #7: My favorite animal is a mongoose

If you’ve never heard of or seen a mongoose, then you’re missing out on so much in life. Look it up. You’ll be amazed. Your life will NEVER be the same. You’re welcome. I also love tigers so yeah.

Fact #8: Anime and manga are my LIFE

I’m pretty much a full-blooded hipster complete with the black skinny jeans and beanies so it was inevitable that I would become addicted to anime and manga. Like, seriously, I feel like my life has been taken over by the things! Give me more manga and anime and I’ll be forever happy and content. I’m not even kidding.

Fact #9: My music collection should be illegal

I’m not kidding when I say I own about a hundred CD’s and a few vinyl records to play on repeat on my record player. I have literally THOUSANDS of songs on all of my playlists that I’ve ever created and I’m considered the ‘music expert’ of my friend group. I’m the first one people come to when they need a playlist made and it makes me feel empowered like nothing else. Now I know how Celaena felt throughout Throne Of Glass. IT’S GLORIOUS.

Fact #10: I have a weird obsession with pens and thrillers

I’m an artist so I think it’s honestly normal for me to be a pen hoarder and pen fanatic. I actually get really giddy whenever I enter the pen aisle in any store because my brain is like ‘OMG MY LOVE!!’. I also adore thriller and horror movies because I apparently have a darker mind set. I’m a hipster and an artist, I’m supposed to be strange. IT’S PART OF THE JOB, PEOPLE!!

Anyhoo, that’s about if from me! I hope I didn’t scare any of you away with my strangeness and excessive capitalization but that’s another thing about me. When I get really passionate about something, I capitalize like crazy. It’s just how I work. SO, what’s one random fact about you? I would honestly love to know because then we can be weird together! Yay, buddies! Okay, bye!


I also use a LOT of GIFS.

    Hey Anissa, how nice of you to join as a co blogger. I don’t think you can scare anyone away here that easily 😉 Random fact about me huh. I discovered fanfoctions for me last year and now I am obsessed. I mean really. It’s quite bad you can ask Inge. Anyway, I look forward to hear more from you.

    • Hello! That’s really neat how you discovered fanfiction! I hear it’s actually quite amazing in many aspects but I’ve yet to read any fanfiction myself. I truly hope you find many more to read and love!!

  3. I can forgive the fact that you don’t like TV because you love Disney and anime and manga and music. So YAY. *hugs* Nice to meet you! 😀 I just went to see Moana with my BFF last weekend and it’s amaaaaaazing. Also, in the spirit of music and anime, I’m obsessed with the opening song of Yuri!! on Ice. Yup.

    • OMG yay!! They’ve taken over my life and I’m always looking for more to entertain me. Yes, I LOVED Moana!! It was so good! Totally a favorite of mine already!! I’ve heard so much about that Anime and have been meaning to watch it for forever now. I just can’t find the time it seems XD

  4. Awww welcome to Of Wonderland! Can’t wait to get to know you a lot more 🙂 I’ve always loved this blog and the bloggers behind it, so I really look forward to being close blog buddies with you in the future! Like you, I hate watching TV, but movies are great, haha. I have a TV in my own bedroom, but I rarely open it because I don’t really watch shows that much. It’s nice to meet you 🙂 Hope to become friends!

    • SAME! I own a TV but it rarely gets used unless I’m watching a movie or Netflix otherwise it just sits there sad and alone. I’m a movie buff so I’ve seen quite a few in my lifetime! It’s so nice to meet you too! Consider the friendship already in motion! ??

  5. Well, hello Anissa! Welcome to Of Wonderland, one of the very few blogs I never fail to visit! It’s absolutely splendid to see a new face here, and I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us! Pleased to meet you <3

    PS: I love gifs too, let's be friends!!

    Hey Anissa! It’s nice to meet you and welcome to the blog. I love that you love music a lot – so do I! And all things creative are especially welcomed on this side of the blogsphere, so welcome! 🙂

  7. Welcome, Anissa!! So excited that you are joining Of Wonderland!! I also love coffee and gifs. I am the opposite of you in that I can get really into TV but hardly ever movies. And your Divergent obsession sounds similar to my Hunger Games one- and for the same reasons, too! So excited to get to meet you!! 😀

    • Aww thanks so much!! I’m so happy that we already have similarities ?? My obsession with GIFS, Divergent and coffee are very concerning so I applaud you and wish nothing but the best in your obsession with The Hunger Games and television!!
