Get To Know Me!

Hey! How are you all? I know I should have done this post a long, long, time ago, but the thought only occurred to me now. *typical me*. So this post has random questions, and I’m going to answer all of them truthfully……kind of. Jk, I will😂 . So….what are we waiting for? Let’s dive right in!

What’s your full name? Annetta Julie Coleman (my pen name). My name Anna is still a nickname associated with my real name, though. I wanted this blog to be anonymous, but I don’t know how far that will go😁. I suck at being anonymous😂.

Did you go to prom? I guess kinda? In Australia, we don’t have “prom”. Americans have prom in junior year,and one in senior year (I think). We don’t have dances every year, but when we DO have dances,we call them formals. You get one formal in Year 6, Year 10 and then finally Year 12. So technically I didn’t go to prom, I went to formal.

Do you enjoy dancing? Ummm hello? I LIVE for my dance and music. I love, love, love x a billion everything to do with dance or music. Enjoy is an understatement.

Do you have a nickname? Yessss I do. A lot of my friends call me Anna, and some call me Annie. I prefer Anna, though.

What’s your best physical feature? A lot of people say my eyes, because they’re kind of doe shaped and I have huge eyelashes(which is REALLY annoying when you have glasses), but I don’t really know.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Extrovert FOR LIFE. I talk to everybody. The postman, the random dude playing tennis in the courts, the lady walking her dog, EVERYBODY. I also have zero stage fear. Like I can stand on stage and do whatever you ask me to do. A lot of people say that being an extrovert is a good thing, but what they don’t know is that once I start talking, I can’t stop talking. When they figure out that characteristic of mine, they kind of wish they could take their words back 😁.

How are you feeling right now? Okay, I guess. I can’t wait for school to start again. I’m so excited!!!! For those who don’t know, the Australian PM recently announced that students will be going back to school from May 11th, but only a quarter of the school, and only one day a week. But it’s still something!! Squeeeeee!!!!!!!

What’s the last song you listened to? The last song I listened to is This is Me from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I love that song. It’s so inspiring!

What’s your current obsession? This blog. I spend a lot of time figuring out what to write and writing posts for you guys. I guess it’s because of the amount of support you’ve shown me. ILY guys❤️.

What’s your favorite movie? All of the Harry Potter series, but I have two other favorite movies. One is the Good Luck Charlie movie, and the other one is Freaky Friday starring Lindsay Lohan. Fun fact: Lindsay’s name in Freaky Friday is also Anna Coleman. It’s because of this that I chose the pen name Anna Coleman for my blog. Anna is my nickname, but the whole name is just a pen name. I found that the character Anna and your girl Anna have a lot of similarities. Like fighting with our Mums a lot😅 . I guess that’s the special thing about a mum and daughter bond. We fight, but then we always come back to each other. Family is forever! I hope that didn’t sound too cheesy😬.

What’s your favorite sport to watch? I LOVE cricket. I watch cricket all the time. I mean, when there are matches. I’ve always really wanted to go to a live match, but I never got the chance:(

How tall are you? I’m about 5’4 and 2.5. I’m short. But hopefully I’ll grow taller.

What’s your favorite snack? Gobi Manchurian. It’s this Indo-Chinese dish, and it tastes like it’s made in heaven! It’s so, so, delicious! Y’all should try it(my attempt to sound vaguely American). But beware, if you can’t handle spice, like a LOT of spice, then it probably isn’t for you.

Who is your celebrity crush? Ok, so when it comes to celebrity crushes, I can never stick to one. I’d say right now it’s Tom Holland and Jess from Gilmore Girls.

What’s your favorite foreign food? Pad Thai. Delicious.

What’s your favorite drink? I have quite a few. There’s frooty, maaza, fanta and pink lemonade.

What’s the thing you can’t leave the house without? My phone  😅. I have all my contacts on there, exam notifications, reminders, photos and I also have SUPER important videos. Of course I can’t leave the house without my phone!!

What’s one goal you would like to accomplish this year? So this is like two goals but they’re both related. I would like to score really well on my half-yearly exams which are coming up. I would also like to do really well in my yearly exams. Yes, I’m a nerd. But nerds are cool! Nerds developed Google and Instagram and Twitter and Facebook and YouTube. Never ever think that you shouldn’t follow your dreams because people brand you as being “uncool”.

What is one food that you refuse to eat? More like a fruit, really. I HATE tomatoes. I don’t know why. I DESPISE tomatoes. I can’t stand them. It’s been that way ever since I was little.

Do you have siblings? Yup. I have one sister.

I hope you enjoyed reading these totally random facts about me! What is your favorite food? Comment below! I love hearing from you guys! Major credits go to the blog Lindsay Lovin’ Life. I got all my questions from there! You can check her blog out here: Until my next post! Anna xx

  1. I love prawns, like really big, king prawns. Also, avocados! I enjoyed reading this and getting the chance to know more about you! Best of luck on your exams! Have a nice day😊

    1. Oooo I really love avocados too! It means so much that you read this and bothered to comment such a sweet comment! Thank you so much:) Your support is motivating me to study more for my exams:) Have a nice day as well! Anna xx

  2. Oh that was a really fun Q&A!! 😁 I didn’t know proms were called formals in Australia.
    And oohh I could relate to that extrovert thing! I guess I’m not as big a one as you (I dont talk to random lads in tennis courts sadly😂) but I honestly CAN’T stop talking sometimes. It gets surprising when I knoww I’ve been talking too much but still can’t stop😛😂 Kudos to us😂🍻

    Aaah I related so much. I’m short as well. Kinda. But I have a feeling I’m never getting around to being actually tall🙄😂. And Harry Potter yaaayy. 🥳❤

    1. Thank you!! I actually didn’t know proms were called formals in Australia as well until Year 6. I was so disappointed that I wasn’t ever going to a “prom”😂. I sometimes wish I didn’t talk to random lads in tennis courts….they look at me all weird😂. I’m so glad I know another extrovert now! Almost everyone I know are really quiet people. You like Harry Potter as well? Yayyyy!!! Even though I’m actually short, I feel really tall around my friends because they’re all tiny 🤣

      We may be short, but our attitude 6’1.💃🏻 (and yes, I got that quote off the internet) Short girls rule!👸🏻

      1. Haha how many years do you have? Does school end after Year 12?
        And lol😂 Same here!! But I guess I’m used to people being quiet by now, because I’m the group talker/entertainer 😂 And it’s fun to keep rolling 😛

        And wow! Lucky you😂 I keep getting pointed out as short. But a big YES to our attitudes being 6’1😂🔥 How old are you by the way?🙂

      2. Yup, school ends after year 12, and then you write the HSC, which is kind of like the GCSE in England, and the SATs in America. Same!! I’m also the group talker/entertainer. Well more talker because my friends don’t have a sense of humor🤣. So this blog was supposed to be anonymous, but I’m really bad at that and I have a feeling a few people are on the verge of figuring out who I am😅. Saying my age would make it super easy for them. But one thing I CAN tell you, I haven’t been to senior formal yet. Thank you for all your really nice comments:) All your comments give me so much motivation<3

      3. Ooh nono..I’m not sure when they take the SATs..but GCSEs are done while you’re still in school. 🙂 Still wow! Every country has something different!
        And ooh that’s completely alright😂✌ And anytimee ❤ :))

      4. HSC’s are also kind of done when in school, because Year 12 ends a term short, and then you write the exams in the last term. Tysm for all your support! Your comments are one of the most motivating ones and I love how you take the time to read and comment. Tysm! ❤


    all the best with your academic goals! stay focussed and determined and remember to take breathers. rooting for ya!

    oooh the backstory to your name is intriguing hehe. my name is also a penname basically based on my real name kinda haha. a penfriend kinda coined it for me and i decided to take it on as my penname

    I love Fanta toooooo

    and ay cricket

    1. Haha I have no idea why 😂 It’s been that way since I was a kid

      Tysm❤️ Your support means so much for me:)

      That’s so cool! A friend kinda gave me the idea for my pen name too! I mean, she didn’t say “you should use it for your blog,” or anything because I don’t think she knows it exists, but she did say that the name would suit me, so I took it on as my pen name

      Ayyyy fanta and cricket

      1. omg, bless you. you’re the second person i know who dislikes them xD

        aw, you’re welcome. i’m here to be your number one hypegirl!

        aw, what a cute backstory to your name too! we both have such badass pen names in my opinion!

  4. As an American, yes when it comes to prom- it is usually for 11th and 12th grade but at my high school (which is a K-12 school) had prom from 9th grade -12th grade due to how small my high school is. Formals don’t exist until college- the university I attended had both a Winter Formal and Spring Formal.

    I am also an extrovert and have a sister. I am the youngest in my family. I love Greatest Showman- actually I first saw it at my university I attended. Every couple of months, we go to the Big E, which at 11:00 pm, it opens only for my university and the place does have movie theaters.

    1. Ooo that’s so cool! Oh it’s also pretty similar here. For some smaller schools I know, they have formals starting from 9th grade. I didn’t know Universities had formals!! I just learnt something new today:)

      Ayy extroverts together!! I love the greatest showman too! It seems like we have a lot in common:)
      Stay safe xx

  5. Loved this post!!!❤️ I live in US and the prom for Junior year we also call a formal. We only use prom for your last year of HS. How’s schooling in Australia?! I’m very intrigued in the learning system everywhere in the world😂😜
    The Greatest Showman soundtrack is ahhh amazing and I think I’ve seen that movie one two many times 🙂

    1. Thank youuuu!! Oh cool! Schooling in Australia is…I guess it kind of depends which high school you go to. So there are these schools which are mainstream, which means you just have to enrol, and there are some schools which are selective, which you have to write an entrance exam to get into. The syllabus basically varies like that. Haha yes so am I :)))
      Yesss it’s sooo awesome!! And Zac Efron ahhh

  6. I love this post so much!!!!, We have loads in common! I love singing and music SO much that it can’t be described in words and Spice for Life (duh.. Billie’s song continues)😂 I would say I’m 70% extrovert but meh still you know? I also have glasses and doe shaped eyes, about the eyelashes I need help in finding that out.😂 My dad used to play a LOT of cricket when he was younger so I’ve heard many stories about it when I was little.😜 Australia is so beautiful, I’ve seen from the pictures and I really hope to visit there sometime!
    Loads of Love, like so much love, I can’t even imagine,
    Srisha xx ❤️

    1. Omg we do have so much in common!! I found another blogger twin😂😂 yesss i love musiiccc so muchhhh!! Do you take any lessons? Yes same! I feel like all Indian Dads did😂 yasss please come visit!! You’ll have an awesome time 💞
