26 Fun Facts


I thought it would be fun to share 26 fun facts that you may or may not know about me. I love learning a little more about the people behind some of my favourite blogs, so I hope you enjoy reading my little list below too!

  1. My name is Jennifer Mercera and I live in The Netherlands. To be exact in The Hague, where I grew up. I have lived in Germany, the United Kingdom and the Dutch Antilles. My parents are from the Dutch Antilles – Curaçao to be exact. 


  2. I am actually a Digital Marketing Strategist. I love blogging and had a blog before Paperbeau (which is not live any more). The main reason I started blogging is to encourage anyone who is going through hard times and to tell stories, I believe we all have a story to tell.


  3. I love to travel, I’ve been dragging my boyfriend around the past few months on trips but now I’m letting him rest I guess.  LOL


  4. Coffee and Anime are my weakness. The last anime film I have seen is “Your Name” and the last anime series I’ve seen is called “Violet Evergreen”. 


  5. I don’t eat pork nor shrimps. (never have).


  6. I’ve never ridden a horse but I really want to.


  7. I don’t have any tattoos but I haven’t ruled it out.


  8. “Leon” is my favourite film.


  9. I love GOD.


  10. I hardly ever wear jewellery…. Yeah!…


  11. I hate being late. It stresses me out.


  12. I’m a huge fan of soul, Motown, blues, and jazz.

  13. I drink green tea every night.


  14. I will be forever that girl that gets really excited when the sky is in pretty colours.


  15.  I love music but I do have a special place in my heart for old school hip-hop artists like Souls Of Mischief, A Tribe Called Quest and so many more.


  16. I play the piano since I am nine.


  17. I’ve travelled to 26 countries so far. (I actually thought it was more…)


  18. I used to be a vegetarian. I have two aunts that are vegetarian, one is actually vegan. When I was 21 years old I decided to give up meat and was a vegetarian for two years. I gave up vegetarianism when I started to travel. But I still prefer eating fish over meat.


  19. I’m a workaholic. Maybe because I grew up in The Netherlands, I have the Dutch work ethic, and if I don’t have work to do, I think something is wrong and create work for myself. Idle hands are the Devil’s playground! I just keep creating or building something up.


  20. I try to run one half a marathon every year. I have been doing this for the past 4 years. The only time I couldn’t participate in a marathon was when I was living in Curaçao.


  21. I’m a Taurus and INTJ. And boy do these describe me allot! That means I’m loyal, hard-working, have strong attention to detail (a nice way of saying I’m a perfectionist), like to help others, independent, reliable, introverted, empathetic and conscientious.


  22. White lies and small talk, even when useful, I truly dislike. I need and love in-depth conversations based on facts and truths.


  23. Public speaking = biggest fear. Even though my whole career has been in marketing, the thought of public speaking still turns my stomach into knots.


  24. I rarely (very very rarely) get bored. There is always something to do or something to read.


  25. I am not a morning person.


  26. In high school, I wanted to be the editor of a fashion magazine.
