Hello blogosphere!

Today, I was nominated by the lovely Regina aka Diversion3000ย 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. Iย lovedย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 justย can’t help it! Anyone else who cracks their knuckles will definitely understand! ๐Ÿ˜€

And that’s all the questions answered! Onto the nominations!

Sunshine Blogger Award!


I’m Just Average Teen Me. So, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by scoutingtheyearaway (check out their blog!)! Thank you SO much for nominating me by the way! It really makes me so happy! Plus it gives me a post to do! ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyways, the rules of this award are:

โ€“ Thank the person who nominated you. done!
โ€“ Answer the questions from your nominators.
โ€“ Nominate 11 bloggers and set themย 11 questions (different to the ones your nominator/s askedย you) to answer.

So, here’s my answering the questions! ๐Ÿ˜€

What is your favourite type of music?

This is quite hard because I’m not completely sure… I like Taylor Swift’s music (old and new) so I guess that’s country/pop but most of all I LOVE Lea Michele’s music, to be specific, On My Way and Don’t Let Go. I’m guessing they’re pop but listen and see what you think! She’s incredible! In fact, I’ll put my iPod on now ๐Ÿ˜‰ There we go! โค

Favourite place to be in the world? (doesnโ€™t have to be country can be your home or the cinema or whatever).

Actually, I really love Blackpool. If you don’t already know, Blackpool is a seaside town in UK. I’m not sure if it counts as a town but let’s just go with it. Anyways, there are tons of attractions and stuff. One of my personal favourites is the Pleasure Beach theme park. I am a sucker for rollercoasters! There’s a place I sometimes go on holiday there too and it’s really peaceful and amazing โค

Who is your idol and why?

Well, I guess I have two main idols. My first being my Aunty Catherine. She is a doctor, she graduated from university a couple years agoย  (OOOH MY FAVOURITE SONG CAME ON!) and as some you may already know, I want to be a doctor, so she’s kind of an inspiration to me because of that. Secondly, Lea Michele (hehe no I’m not obsessed) would also be one of my idols. Not because she’s a famous singer but because of how strong she is – mentally and physically. In 2013 her on and off-setย boyfriend died at 31. It was really tragic, and even though she was surrounded by swarms ofย the media, she tried to stay strong and now she’s just an inspiration for me. Not to mention she’s in really good physical shape. ๐Ÿ™‚

Describe your personality in three words

This is really hard actually… Is it fair if I ask my friends? Personally, I would say: perfectionist, creative and friendly… But if my friends reply (I sent them a message) then I’ll make sure to add what they’ve said to the post! ๐Ÿ˜€ Okay so Penny said that I’m Smart, fun and kind ๐Ÿ™‚

Best experience of your life so far?

This is really difficult… It’s hard to peg down a specific moment of my life as my best…. I guess dragging Bob onto a rollercoaster is quite high up there ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh that was funny!

What is your favourite Christmas or Halloween and why?

I’m guessing this is meaning do I prefer Christmas or Halloween??? Anyways, Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year! I just love the cosiness, the presents ๐Ÿ˜‰ย , the food and just it’s more of a family thing than Halloween. Cringe yeah I know but who cares ๐Ÿ˜€

Have you ever been camping, if so did you like it or not?

Nope I have never been camping… And I don’t plan on doing… I don’t really like small, confined spaces if there are people with me (I’m fine on my own) so I probably wouldn’t last long camping… Plus you don’t have your own toilet and shower…

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be and why?

Okay, this is a really minor change but it just popped into my head…. I’m thinking ‘People in school are allowed to chose whether they want to take part in performing arts/drama or not’… I know some people actually really enjoy drama but I am most certainly not one of them! I am really self conscious and I just really hate drama ๐Ÿ˜€

Are you left or right handed? (Bit of a random one, haha).

I’m right handed ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your all-time favourite film and why?

Can I chose a series? HARRY POTTER! IT’S JUST SO GOOD โค Actually, I really like Jupiter Ascending (Titus โค ) and The Maze Runner too! And Inside Out! OH WAIT CINDERELLA LIKE I’M SORRY BUT THAT HAS TO WIN! โค IT’S PERFECTION!

Do you prefer hot drinks or cold drinks?

Personally, I prefer hot drinks. I absolutely love hot chocolate in any season of the year at any time of the day no matter what I’m supposed to be doing.. ๐Ÿ˜€

That’s all of the questions finished!

The people that I’ll be nominating are:


I don’t really like singling certain people out… It makes me feel a bit mean so everyone can have a go! Make sure to tell me if you do though!!

My 11 questions for anyone who would like to answer them:

What was your favourite childhood toy?

What’s one blog that you cant miss a post from?

If you made a fake ID, what would your name be?

Favourite meal of the day and why?

Which fictional character would you make non-fictional?

What is your dream job? Why?

What’s your favourite piece of clothing?

Would you ever trust anyone with your life at the moment? (deep I know but go with it ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

How do you personally start a conversation?

What is the longest you’ve gone without sleep?

What is your favourite word? Why?

That’s all of them! I’m not too good at coming up with questions that are interesting but hopefully your answers will make them a lot better!
