As someone who appears to share a lot of their life on the internet; from this blog to my Instagram stories, you would assume that I've revealed a lot about myself. However, it's important to remember that just because someone posts a lot, doesn't mean that they are revealing their whole life. Anyway, today, I'm going to be sharing 5 things you probably didn't know about me.

5 things you probably didn't know about me

1. I'm actually Lauren (Not Lauryn)
For people that know me in real life, this is an obvious one. For those of you that just occasionally read a few blog posts, you'll probably be thinking "why on earth doesn't she spell her name correctly?". Well, my dear friends, ask 9 year old Lauryn (or Lauren?) who thought it would make her cool and edgy - let's be honest, I'm never going to be cool or edgy - to spell her name with a 'y'. Nearly 11 years and it's just kinda stuck and I do prefer it much more, it's just awkward when I'm signing documents and I have to go through the whole Lauren with an E but I spell it with a Y fuss.

2. I'm obsessed with home organization posts and videos
I used to be ashamed of the fact that, at the age of 19, a 'fun evening' for me is spent watching youtube videos, reading blog posts and scrolling through Pinterest looking for home organization tips. Now, I'm not ashamed at all. I don't know why I find it so enjoyable and therapeutic but I'm looking forward to having my own space next year to experiment with some of these organization hacks.

3. I've never been on a 'night out'
Actually, maybe you could guess this one. I turn 20 in less than 5 months and unless you count spending way too long in Spoons as a 'night out', this is something I'm yet to do. To be honest, I'm completely fine with that. I'm not a 'going out person' and I'm quite happy to be home by 9 to binge watch shows on Netflix.

4. Before JustALittleBitOfLauryn I sold my own art
My form of income before this blog was in fact selling my art work and doing commission pieces through Lauryn Does Art. As you can probably see by now, I'm happiest when I'm doing something creative which explains why 'normal' part time jobs never worked for me (as you'll see in the next point)

5. My part time job at McDonald's lasted a whole 16 hours
This time last year, I started a part time job at McDonald's. 16 hours later, I decided that this job was not for me and never went back. I fainted halfway through my second shift but even before that, I knew that I was not able to do this job. I praise anyone who can handle cleaning up ketchup filled tables when parents decide not to clean up after their children.

So, those are the 5 things you probably didn't know about me. What is something that nobody really knows about you?
