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).

    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.

  2. Instagram is Amazing! I’m very thankful to it’s developers. It helped me to meet the most beautiful lady ever. And today she’s the Love of my Life. My Girlfriend, My wife.
