Who am I?

Hey! You’re probably thinking “man this woman updates a lot!”  but I saw this post on BlogMatter and I thought I should give it a crack! This is a little “who am I?” post to tell all you new readers all about me! As you can tell from my answers, I’m a bit silly!

  1. My name is:
    Jana Hayes
  2. My birthday is:
  3. I live in: (Country or City):
    Christchurch, New Zealand

  6. I blog about: My personal life, mainly. I rant about a lot of things.
  7. My blog is called Jana’s Journal because:
    I had no idea what to call it. It never really had a name, it was always just “Jahemian”. Then I decided “what the hey, it needs a proper name”. Original and creative, I know!
  8. I love watching:
    OK. Ya’ll are going to laugh. Then again, I share this everywhere. I love The Vampire Diaries. Mainly the actors / actresses in it. Because I’m a perv. Aside from that, I like silly things like South Park and the Simpsons, Futurama etc, but I LOVE BBC comedy like Vicar of Dibley, The Young Ones, Black Adder, Top Gear, etc etc.
  9. I love reading:
    I haven’t read since I started uni, really. I guess Harry Potter. I wonder how many people have answered this “about me” questionnaire with that answer?
  10. I love doing:
    Learning! But in my own time and at my own pace. IE: I love reading Wikipedia for History, or watching documentaries on history.
  11. I love playing:
    PC games? WoW when I can afford it (Both time and money wise). Cities:Skylines, AoE etc etc. I also like Cards Against Humanity. 🙂
  12. I love listening to:
    Foo Fighters, Queen, Eminem, Sublime, Sam Smith, System of a Down, Tool, Rammstein, Old school hip hop, rap, what kind of question is this? 😛
  13. I love collecting:
    Rubbish? Seriously, I have paper I probably don’t need everywhere. >.< I used to love collecting stickers.
  14. Favorite book:
    Right now I don’t have one. 🙁
  15. Favorite movie:
    I had to edit this. Because first I had anything Harry Potter. Then I remembered Drop Dead Fred and how many times I’ve watched it. Mmmm. I want to watch it right now…
  16. Favorite song:
    Right now? Tro Love – Habits, Hippie Sabotage remix.
    All time? Argh, probably Foo Fighters – Everlong
  17. Favorite TV show:
    I think we spoke of this before. No but really, all time? Can I say Game of Thrones? No? Too over done? The Young Ones. Funniest. Show. Ever.
  18. Favorite game:
  19. My pets:
    I have none. Jared (Boyfriend) has tropical fish, though!
  20. My tattoos:
    I have three, I’ll have to take a photo of them and show ya’ll!
  21. My piercings:
    I have my ears pierced but hardly ever wear anything in ’em

    Pineapple because I’m sweet and tangy? (Er)
  23. If I was a season I would be:
    Winter. because my heart is so cold. </3. Jokes. I’d be summer because summer is the bomb-digity

    A Totara Tree. because I like that one the most.
  25. If I was a stone/gem/mineral I would be:

    PLUTO because Pluto is a planet, I tell you! <3

  28. If I was a color I would be:
    I’m blue daba-de-daba-da.
  29. If I was an animal I would be:
    A tuatara because they’re all slow and big and crazy looking!

  • I like this post. I feel as if I’ve learned a lot about you. I love history too and I’m curious, so I love learning generally. Sometimes, I’m a bit much though, because I can talk about history for hours (even though I typically refrain) and when any of my students ask a historical question inside I’m thinking, “YASS~” Most the time, I ask them “How much do you want to know?” because the conversation could be endless…

    Also, I really like your blog’s theme. It looks nice and it’s easy to read/navigate.

      Thanks for the comment, Chantelle!

      I wish I could take the credit for the theme! I wanted something nice and easy though and whenever I make my own themes they always come out so…. Not professional? Does that makes sense?

      What do you teach? I mostly listen, never inform about history, because as much as I love learning it, I always forget the important parts. Do you have a favorite era of history? I like anything, but mainly I love learning about anything pre-victoria era. Recently I’ve been watching these videos on Daily Motion about the Franks etc. Here is the one I’m watching today: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xrog2n_barbarians-ii-the-franks_shortfilms the quality is crap, but I still enjoy them!

      • I teach history. ^^ Actually, most of the time, I teach English literature. All of my history classes finished earlier this month, so now I just have Eng lit., which is fine. 😀 I love teaching history, though. Honestly, I love teaching pretty much anything (math, history, English lit. physics…) As for favorite eras, I like the Revolutionary and Antebellum periods in the States, the Age of Absolutism in Europe (mainly France), and Korea’s colonial period as well as some of its earlier periods. I’m also a fan of early modern English history but pretty much anything works for me–legal history, historiography, whatever. I’m going to check out those videos.

  • Hi Jana. Thank you for leaving a comment on your blog. Hearing about your positive turnaround is inspiring to me.

    It seems like we have a couple of things in common. I love CAH, and Everlong is one of my favourite songs (if not THE one). Except I don’t like Vampire literature at all. Also, I LOVE superheroes,,, My friends and I are major fans of the Marvel movie franchise. I intend to put together a “my favourite things” post at some point soon.
