Instagram Is An Amazing Community Of People

Instagram is an amazing community where you can learn a surprisingly lot about people through their short captions and comments. Then there are times you can learn even more, like when my beautiful Insta-friend @monicaspassport listed 10 fun facts about herself and then tagged me to do the same!

Here are my 10, the more in-depth version than I was able to put on Instagram:

๐Ÿ˜† How do you pronounce my name???

Aixa is three syllables: ai-EEK-sa

My name is a spelling variant of Aisha, the first wife of the prophet Mohammad. My mom didnโ€™t know this when she named me, but she had read the name in a book and she liked it.

๐Ÿ˜ฑ I have been bitten twice by scorpions.

The first time, I was 14 years old and was asleep in bed. It hurt but, before I could even think of taking care of this, I turned on the lights, woke up my sisters and we spent an hour hunting it so it wouldnโ€™t bite any of us again. We found it and put it in a matchbox.

The second time, I was ironing clothing. When I put my arm in the pant leg to pull it inside-out, I knew right away I was in trouble! I pulled my arm out as fast as I could but too late! The scorpion went flying and I was never able to find it.

๐Ÿ˜ฎ I learned to drive when I was 13 years old.

My friendโ€™s father taught us, and then I usually had to drive to pick him up when he was drunk.

๐Ÿ˜† I can imitate most Spanish accents, including a few from Spain and a lot of Latin American accents.

๐Ÿ˜† I love visiting different supermarkets.

Even when weโ€™re traveling, we make sure to stop at any supermarkets we find. Going to a supermarket for me is like other people going to the movies.

๐Ÿ˜ฎ When I was 17, I met a numerologist I met at a friendโ€™s house when I went to pick her up.

The numerologist asked me to empty the contents of my bag and then told me a lot of things about myself that she would have had no way of knowing.

Then she told me that one day I would cross earth and sea to meet the man of my life. I never thought about that one again until I left Venezuela for the United States and met him ๐Ÿ˜

She also said that I met her and we were delayed from going out that night for a reason. When we finally left, we saw that there had been a bad car accident a little earlier crossing Avenida de Pozuelos.

๐Ÿ˜ If I love you, I will defend you from anything ๐Ÿ˜– but if you betray me, I will never forget… ever!

๐Ÿ˜‹ I will eat anything, even insects! I ate them in Puebla, Mexico.

๐Ÿ˜ฑ There is only one thing I am afraid of…

…frogs. When I lived in the wilds of Venezuela, I would find them everywhere, including the kitchen and the toilet.

๐Ÿ˜‰ My Instagram profile picture was a selfie my husband took in our rental car in Paris!

    1. You may be the best example of an amazing person that I met through Instagram, Amanda. People should see for themselves on your website or in your Instagram gallery…

      1. You are so sweet!!! I canโ€™t wait to meet you in person some day too. Love that we share the passion for traveling. And by the way, I totally guessed your name was three syllables โค๏ธ (from the days I spoke spanish much better than I do know…my college minor).

      2. Yes, but I wonโ€™t be jumping out of any attack helicopters with you or scaling the sides of any cliffs ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. Your answers to the questions are wonderful, worth reading for anyone visiting these comments. This community of bloggers is new for me but itโ€™s turning into another amazing community of people.

      1. What a wonderful description of you, Bojana, and such a beautiful way to show his appreciation of these special people.

      2. Yes, he’s amazing. Not so sure of himself and his writing though so we keep encouraging him. A good poet, a good pal and a wonderful human being. All requirements I’m asking for in a blogger.

  1. You definitely live an interesting life. I could do more with Instagram but need more tutorials. Engaging with comments always seems a little hard and trying to go back in to read seems awkward. I must be doing it wrong ๐Ÿ™ Looking forward to your post!)

    1. Thanks for reading, Terri. Instagram updated their commenting system a couple of months ago so the replies appear right below the comment now, and indented. Also, when you tap a comment in your Activity window, it takes you right to the comment.
