Today, I was nominated by the lovely Regina aka Diversion3000 to do the 20 Questions About Me Tag. These questions seem quite fun to answer, hence the getting onto it so quickly (shocker, I’m actually posting – this is not a drill)
Since there don’t seem to be any rules for this tag, let’s get right to the questions, shall we?
1 – Are you named after anyone?
As for my first name, I don’t think I am. I know my middle name came from my mum’s sister, so my auntie.
2 – When was the last time you cried?
I’m actually a really emotional person, when I’m alone (I’m pretty good at keeping stuff to myself and haven’t actually cried in front of anyone in YEARS). Anyway, last time I cried was probably a few days ago when I watched Everything Everything. I loved it, but it did get me a lil bit emotional!
3 – Do you have kids?
If you count the many celebrities I’ve mentally adopted as my babies, then yes I have many kids. Biological kids? Hah, I’m 15 and the most interaction I’ve had with any guys I like is discussions about school… So no, I don’t have any kids.
4 – If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE – I’m kidding, I think? I actually think about this kind of thing a lot. Wondering how other people see me has always been kind of interesting, and I guess I’d have to be in the situation to know. To be quite honest, I honestly don’t know.
5 – Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I do indeed. A lot of the time it gets taken out of context and slaps me straight in the face, which isn’t great but it’s all good; I make myself laugh, at least.
6 – What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Posture. I seem to pick up on body language and how a person holds themselves in situations quite quickly. So, if I’m trying to talk to someone and they’re slouchy and uninterested, I’ll notice that pretty soon.
7 – What is your eye colour?
I never know whether to say blue or green. My eyes are mainly blue I guess, and that’s what it says on my passport, but I have a ring of green around my pupils, that then merges into the blue. It’s all very confusing, but my eyes are one of my favourite things about myself, physically. 🙂
8 – Scary movie or happy ending?
Happy ending, all the way. I’m not a fan of scary movies at all, and I’ll avoid them as much as I can. There’s something about happy endings that just put me in such a good mood, and fills my heart for quite a while after! I’m thinking of getting a post up about some of my favourite happy films, so keep an eye out! (shameless self-promo)
9 – Do you have any special talents?
I can binge entire TV shows in pretty short spaces of time and quickly become emotionally attached to celebrities and fictional characters…. I guess I can play guitar quite well , too.
10 – Do you have any pets?
I have two doggos, and a bunch of fish. 🙂
11 – What is your dream career?
See, I’m not exactly sure what I want to be when I’m older. I used to want to be a doctor, but I kind of grew out of that, since I’m not all too interested in it anymore, not to mention I’m quite squeamish. I know I want my job to have something to do with Geography, because that’s probably what I’ll be doing at university.
12 – Who was your first best friend?
Ohhh the nostalgia. When I was three or four, I met a girl at playgroup (similar to Kindergarten I think?), who I ended up being really close with until I was eleven. When we switched to high school, she changed so quickly, and we just drifted apart.
13 – How tall are you?
I’m 5’6, which is 167cm. I’m fairly average height, I think? I’m happy here though, and I haven’t grown in years so I reckon this is my final height 🙂
14 – How many countries have you visited?
England (I live here), Wales (I had to google if it was a country), USA (My dad’s family all live there, so we’ve visited them a few times, and I went to Disney World Florida once). And that’s all! I’ve not been abroad in almost 11 years, so I’m pretty nervous about getting on a plane!
15 – What was/is your favourite/worst subject in High School?
Currently, my favourite subject is Geography. It’s a super chilled out lesson (and we still manage to get work done?), and it’s topics that I’m actually interested in for the majority. A lesson that I really dread is English. I know, I’m a blogger, I should enjoy English, but I just really don’t like the way we have to learn it. The fun of reading and learning to write more creatively is kind of stripped away if you get me? SCREW YOU EDUCATION SYSTEM!
16 – What is your favourite perfume?
I don’t really use perfumes, but I have a Superdry body spray, and I LOVE it!
17 – What would you name your children?
I have given this quite a bit of thought actually, and I love the name Quinn for a girl. I used to be pretty self-conscious (I still am, I guess, but it’s miles better), and I found that giving myself a little alter-ego seemed to help that, so I’d try to get into the mindset of Quinn Fabray from Glee (she’s a really strong character, and she dealt with a lot on the show). I guess I’d just hope that my own child can feel comfortable with herself, too. 🙂
18 – What sports do you play/ have you played?
I’m really not that sporty. I work out alone, at home every now and then (I’ve been useless this holidays) but I guess I play tennis sometimes in the park. 🙂
19 – What phone do you currently use?
Moto E 3rd Generation (White)
20 – Tell us one of your bad habits!
Oooohhhh, I crack my knuckles a lot….. It drives my mum insane, but I just can’t help it! Anyone else who cracks their knuckles will definitely understand! 😀
And that’s all the questions answered! Onto the nominations!
