Say hi! + 10 Quirky Facts About Me

It’s always scary to me when I see in my stats that someone has looked at my About page… like, what is even on there??!! lol

There are some new humans around (and I think some fake humans too but anyway…) so I figured I would introduce myself again and encourage y’all to say hi in the comments!

I’m Anna! *waves* My name is pronounced “onnuh” and yes I’m a princess… or maybe more like an awkward, book-toting, story-scribbling, people-watching, Christian midget. πŸ˜€



I grew up wandering the deep forests of Oregon, and I now find adventures in the baffling but exciting cities of Arizona. And what adventures!!

Somehow I’ve managed to find the best people on the planet as my friends, stay alive during plenty of hard things, and have the best of times with my big jolly family.

At least one ponytail holder is always on my wrist, a maroon colored one recently.

I eat almost everything in a bowl cuz bowls are cool.

My arsenal of laughs scares myself.

I have a mysterious line across my nose, and we joke it is someone else’s sewn on. :/ πŸ˜›

Once I kept a cough for close to a whole year. #talents

I can NOT stand wearing flip-flops. (no pun intended)

I can NOT stand wearing heels. (pun intended)

I adopt and overuse random words I like, a few of which being “jolly”, “epic”, “dude”, “fantastic”, and “100%”.

My phone is full of screenshots of text convos that are special to me.

I draw little smiley faces everywhere in pen.

Bonus Fact: I only have two eyes.

You should explore the tab “Words by Me” for bits of my writing of all sorts (short stories, flash fiction, etc)!

Please be sure to check out my first post! It explains why I started this blog, what “storynerd” means, and tells more about me. πŸ˜‰

Tell me something quirky about you! Do you have only two eyes? ~Anna




P.S. Glad to know I’m not dead? πŸ˜‰ jk I’m only mostly dead. I was violently ill for almost all of April, but I SURVIVED!!! *cue Captain America theme*

  2. Fun fact about me…I have four eyes! (Two are so severely compromised that I have another pair)
    (That was my roundabout way of saying I’m so astigmatic I’m nearly legally blind, so I wear contacts)
    I used to fantasize about wearing high heels when I was little, and then I got pointe shoes and was like, “heels are laaaaaaame!”
    I’m new-ish, but I’m still super excited to see you post more!

    1. Okay wow. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You literally made me weirded out for a few seconds before I read the rest of your comment. lol Love it!! Such a fun way to say you wear contacts!

      Aww no way! Pointe shoes are epic!! πŸ‘

      It’s going to be great having you around, Natalie! Thanks for your excitement. πŸ™‚

  3. Bwahahaha!! Two eyes . . . It reminds me of a favorite quote from a BBC movie, Cranford. β€œI love eyes. Especially the way most people have two of them, right in the middle of their forhead.” πŸ˜€

    Also, glad your back! I had been wondering where you had been β€” I’m sorry you’ve been sick! Blegh!

    {really} random fact: there’s a violent stomach virus going around the Heart of Dixie, and Welches 100% purple grape juice will keep it away. If you drink it before you’re actually sick. πŸ˜‰ Guess what I’m drinking to spark that? πŸ˜›

    1. Oh man, that is a fantastically hilarious quote!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Aw thanks, Kaitlyn! I’m glad to be back. πŸ™‚

      Yikes! Hope you don’t get sick!!


  4. AND I’m one of those short people who is the oldest sibling and nearly all of my siblings are taller. So I live in heels most of the time. And Im still shorter than them in heels πŸ˜€

    1. Haha I so getcha nowadays, my little sisters keep measuring to see if they’re taller than me yet and I’m like NOOOooo!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜²
      Wow you’re amazingly coordinated to be wearing heels so often… aw so cute and short, girl!!


  5. Very glad you’re alive! That’s so awesome that they have that description line in the definition of quirky πŸ˜€ I have no particular use for pony-tail holders, so I usually steal them from my sisters and hide them in obvious places for them to find. Never had a particular liking for heels either, since it allows my friends who wear them to look down on me, which I don’t like. Come to think of it, you do use those catch phrases quite a bit!

      haha Right?! Quirky is such a fun word..
      Dude that’s horrid and hilarious of you!! I’ll make sure to keep a close eye on my hairties when you’re around. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m the person in my family who collects all the runaway ponytail holders and holds them for ransom and bartering. πŸ˜›πŸ˜‡
      lol lol poor dude. Am I taller than you when I’m in heels? I can’t remember from that one Easter…
      Ah yes, 100% fantastically epic and jolly lingo dude. 😎✌

  6. This was so funny!! I’m going with five eyes. My own eyes, my glasses, and my mind’s eye. πŸ˜† Okay, random quirky fact…I had a lisp till I was about ten and consequently still confidently say some words wrong. πŸ˜‚

  7. “At least one ponytail holder is always on my wrist, a maroon colored one recently.” I did this too, until I broke my collarbone. Then my mom somehow ended up managing to get me to stop.

    “My arsenal of laughs scares myself.” Saaaaaame! They range from my real one (which is super nice actually, but only shows up every once and a while) braying like a llama/sheep/goat, squawking, squeaking, and shrieking. Once and a while, I laugh until I cry, and once I laughed but there was no sound; just like the intense squeaking of the air as I let it out and it was hilarious. πŸ˜‚

    “Bonus Fact: I only have two eyes.” No. Way. ME TOO! 😱 We’re like twinzies! (to put it as my 4-year old sister likes to whenever anyone’s wearing something even mildly similar)

    1. Yikes, sorry you broke your collarbone, Julia! That must have HURT.

      Bwhahaa!! Exactly! I laughed at something the other day and my sib looked up with big eyes and goes “that’s a new one” and of course that made me die laughing again. XD Glad I’m not the only one with a bunch of different, interesting laughs! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ lol Yas the kind with no sound is the funniest.

      Wow so cool! Twinzies it is! πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜‰ (Aw your sis sounds super cute)

      Thanks for commenting, Julia! πŸ™ƒ

    1. Hey thanks! Ug sorry, being sick sure isn’t fun. :/
      Brittny is a pretty name! So happy to meet you and can’t wait to get to chat more in comments! πŸ™‚
      lol Hooray for two eyes! πŸ˜‰βœŒ
      Ooh interesting question… YES it was real tough transitioning even though the people down here were/are super nice; I think it was really the weather and the small-town feel that were the worst to leave behind. Also not knowing some things about normal life (like that there’s a difference between highways and freeways, and never having been to a mall πŸ˜†) and so being an overwhelmed country girl for a while was weird for someone who was pretty good at everything in their old life lol tbh. But Arizona is super great if you’re good with warm weather!! πŸ‘
      Lemme know if you ever make it to AZ, it’d be fun to meet you in person someday!

      Thanks for commenting, Brittny! πŸ˜€

  10. Quirky fact: my autocorrect has been giving me the most hilarious typos lately. (Including saying I write β€œamazing” reviews instead of β€œAmazon” ones to an author who’s offering to give me a review copy of her book.)
