Hello! Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend so far. The weather has been grey and rainy here (and probably across most of the UK) so I’ve been having a cosy weekend in 🙂 Today I bring you the Random Facts About Me Q&A which the lovely Megan tagged me in (you should go follow her amazing blog!!). I’ve had so many blog post ideas lately but I just can’t seem to start writing them???? Or I start a draft then decide that it isn’t interesting enough to post anyway but I’m hoping this tag will get me back into the swing of things.
Without further or do, here are the questions!
When was the last time you cried?
Sometime last week as I was having a bit of a breakdown about cooking (learning to cook for uni is really stressing me out and my parents keep bringing up how useless I am. But I’m getting there!! I could for my family three times this weekend!)
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Hopefully. I mean, I am quite odd – my family could back me up here, I randomly quote songs or speech from adverts/films/TV programs or start singing at multiple times throughout the day so I’m probably
a bit annoying but I try to be a loyal and caring friend so??? Probably. 😂
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Not really. Well sometimes I do but I wouldn’t say I am naturally sarcastic but sometimes sarcasm just comes to me! Idk AHH!!
What’s the first thing that you notice about people?
Their smile. I’m quite a smiley person and I usually look to see if other people reciprocate my smile when I first meet them. 🙂
Scary movie or happy endings?
Definitely happy endings!!!
Campfires, bread and cinnamon. (If someone could make a candle out of all three scents that would be gr8).
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
A little village called Stanzach in Austria where I stayed on a Scout camp. Although the furthest I’ve been ‘independently’ without ‘adults’ (funny bc we were all technically adults) would be Amsterdam where I traveled last month with two friends.
Do you have any special talents?
Not really, I can juggle but that’s not very special 😂
Where were you born?
In my hometown in Somerset!!
What are your hobbies?
Blogging is my main hobby, but I also like to be arty and paint/sketch/make things. I can play the guitar and am learning the keyboard but I don’t play my instruments very often.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
The first career I remember wanting to go into was being a scientist as I got a really cool science book for my birthday once. Then alongside that I simultaneously wanted to be an artist, a zookeeper and a professional cricketer. Then a vet at one point, then a historian and now I’m not heading down any of those paths 😂😂
How many countries have you been to?
England, Wales, Scotland, France, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands. So 7 but we can’t really count England right??
What was your favourite/worst favourite subject at school?
I think I had a lot of favourites at secondary school – history, geography and French being the main three which I carried on at A Level. I think my least favourite became science because I didn’t get on with my teacher at all (which is a shame because it put me off doing science altogether) but also English, mainly because we only got to study American literature and I never got to study Shakespeare at all 😦 Also English wasn’t taught very well at my school. Maybe that’s a little unusual as I like writing and reading generally but just not having to do English at school.
What is your favourite drink?
Hot drink would have to be hot chocolate and cold drink would probably be a smoothie!!
What would you (or have you) named your kids?
Haven’t really thought about it so I have no idea 😂
Who are some of your favourite Youtubers?
My fellow blogger pal Janet Bargmann 😉 and study Youtubers like Holly Gabrielle and Eve Bennett. Although I don’t watch a great deal of YouTube!
How many boyfriends have you had?
What is your favourite memory from childhood?
Ahh like Megan I can’t pick just one?! So a few would be dressing up with my sister and performing plays for our parents, making an elaborate Doctor Who game with my friends in primary school and writing a script for it and picking blackberries with my family in the Autumn!
How would you describe your fashion sense?
I don’t really know how to describe it because it changes a lot?? But I generally wear a lot of shirts and jeans and either brogues or DM-style boots. (My friend and I have a running joke about my wardrobe being full of shirts…it literally is though I’m a bit of a shirt addict)
Tell us one of your bad habits?
Spending too much time getting sucked into social media instead doing actual productive things.
Hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I’ve been wanting to do a tag like this for a while so you get to know a bit more about me 🙂 If you would like to do this tag, all you’ve got to do is answer the questions above!
