It seems that every day I peruse Facebook, someone has posted a quiz of some kind or another. I have to admit that I take almost every one of them.

Since I’ve started taking these quizzes, I’ve learned that if I were a mythical creature, I would be a phoenix and if I were a Golden Girl, I would be Rose. I am also hot buttered rolls and scotch. The one I love being the most is Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride. These are all things that I didn’t know about myself.

These quizzes ask you a bunch of random questions that seem to be unrelated to the subject of your quiz, yet magically gives you the answer of who you are. Well, who you are if you were a pop star, or what kind of dog you are or even what decade you really belong in.

Probably one of the best things about finding out who you are is the description of who you are. I’ve been described as someone who appreciates life’s simple pleasures. My sincerity confuses people. My true friends love my quirkiness. Apparently everybody wants me but nobody can have me.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend some time and find out a little bit more about yourself, or maybe which Princess Bride character you are or which food you would be, then click on over to BuzzFeed and take one of their many quizzes.
