five facts || should I do a Q&A?

bored, so here's five random facts about me that you may not know *was gonna do ten but couldn't think of that many*, and random pictures I took over a year ago (I haven't taken pictures like that in a loooonnnngggg time) *winks*

1- of all my cousins (close to seventy) only seven are just my first cousins. Seven plus one who's actually not really related to me 'cause he was adopted. Seven. All the rest are also related to me in some other way. It's even hard for me to comprehend this. How is it only seven? also, of all these cousins, there is only one that I've never met. *nods* 

2- I am related to Jesse James. For years it was a rumor, but now it has been proven and call me weird, but I think it's the coolest thing ever. It's proven. Frank and Jesse James are my cousins. I always believed it even when it was just a "rumor". Jesse looks like family. Because he is family. And why else would my great-great grandma get a letter from him,apologizing for not being able to make it to her wedding? I can't believe some people doubted. *shakes head* *winks* 

3- I am a mutt. Mostly Finn or Scandinavian. Plus German, American Indian, English, French, Irish... to name a few. Mostly Finn because my Grandma is 100%, making my dad half... plus there's a little Finn on my mom's side, but from that side we're mostly Indian and German. And then there's English on my mom's side. Maybe some of you remember learning about The Deliverance saving Jamestown in history? Yeah, that was my relative who was captain of that ship. And Delaware state? That state was named after one of my grandpas... and this same grandpa was governor of Jamestown. *nods* So those are my English relatives. *winks* ...
being a mutt makes me truely American, right? *winks* 

4- I was born October 14th (10.14.99), at 10:14 a.m. after 10 hours and 14 minutes of labor...*blink blink* if that's not cool, I honestly don't know what is. 

5- I was named after the Dominican Republic (well, actually the Island of Dominica, which is in the Dominican Republic)- but my great-aunt thought the spelling should be changed a bit. To make it more feminine. And here I am - Daminika. I can't even imagine writing my name out as D-o-m-i-n-i-c-a... no, that would be just weird. I like the spelling the way it is. <3 

also, should I do a Q&A post? If you think so, ask me a million questions in the comments! (and if I don't get a million, I won't do it *winks*) 


  1. I did not know number 4! That is pretty cool, but I've always liked things like that. Like the fact that I'm the 4th baby of the 4th baby of the 4th baby! ;) A Q&A would be great, but I can't think of any questions right now..

    1. You really didn't? Where have you been, Auntie Dear?? ;P
      Wow, that's cool too XD
      Yeah, we'll see if I do one. So far I haven't gotten a million questions, sooooo..... ;P

  2. Wow, you have some cool ancestry! :D I have a LOT of Finn too (which you probably know). And yea, a lot of other stuff, including Swedish, English, French, Irish, some sort of Asian or Eskimo-type Indian, and maybe even a tiny bit of African American. That stuff is quite interesting. :)

    Yes, do a Q&A! =D K, here's some random questions...

    What is your top three favorite colors?
    Have you ever played the game called Spoons? (it's fun *winks*)
    What is you favorite kind of cookie?
    If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
    If you could eat anything you wanted right now, what would you pick?

    There you go! xD

    1. yeah, it's pretty amazing ;P Most people I know are Finn. ;D African American? It's rumored that there's some of that in me too, but it's not proven so I just didn't put it. Plus I couldn't very well say EVERYTHING that I am. ;P I think I'm Swedish and Norwegian too, but saying Scandinavian covers all that ;P

      I really want to! But I haven't gotten much for questions yet so we'll see. I need a million, ya know ;P Even if I don't do a Q&A I'll answer your questions at some point, ok? 'cause they're good questions

    2. Yea it is. *winks*

      Well I hope you get a million, 'cause the Q&A sounds fun! xD Thanks! ;)

  3. Actually it was our Uncle who was Lord Delaware and our grandpa, Captain Franis West, who came on the Deliverance...;-)

    1. Yeah, it was our uncle, not Grandpa, who was "Lord De La Warr". But, I believe it was that same Uncle (Thomas West) that sailed the ship? Not Francis...

    2. Francis was Governor of Virginia though!

    3. From what I understand, Thomas West "Lord De La Warr" was the captain that "saved" Jamestown and then was governor first. According to history on the event. But, I don't know anything about "Grandpa Francis", lol.

  4. AND your name means " Belonging to God" or " The Lord's day" :) Columbus discovered the island on a Sunday :) All neat facts!! :):)
