So I’ve not exactly been active on my blog, I had big plans but holidays and procrastination and pictures of puppies got in the way and almost two months later I’m only just writing my second blog post – slap on the wrist for me! But I opened up my laptop this evening and was in a blogging mood so I figured let’s just do this thing.
Since my first blog post was short and sweet, I’m doing a 15 facts about me to inject a little personality to my corner of the internet 🙂 I’ve also included a picture of my face so that you can imagine me babbling on, what a treat for the eyes! Now, are you sitting comfortably? Well then let’s begin!
Starting with the basics, I’m 23 years old and I currently live and work in the North East of England, although I originally come from the midlands in England.
When I was a baby, my feet turned inwards and my hips fused before they started to point the right way. So since around the age of two I’ve been going to the chiropractor and started ballet classes to get them looking a bit more normal! I always used to trip and fall over my own feet and to be honest I still do this because I’m SO clumsy, but now the only time they turn inwards are when I’m a tired bunny.
My biggest, biggest, BIGGEST irritation is the sound of people eating or breathing. I cannot even begin to explain how much I cannot stand this sound, it’s sort of a wet, sloppy, disgusting noise. It makes me cringe just thinking about it. I’m aware it’s a teensy bit of an overection which is probably just as annoying for the poor soul just trying to eat their dinner as it is for me listening to it, but it actually has a name – Misophonia. So yeah, use your mouths responsibly guys, this is a thing!
I love to sing – I sing to myself and my loved ones on an almost constant basis, generally songs I compose on the spot.
I am very bad at singing, some have likened me to a bag of cats. I think I’d be the joke act on X Factor and I would love every second of it.
I am a teensy, weensy, little bit lactose intolerant. Basically, my stomach has a tantrum whenever I have milk, ice cream or a lot of yoghurt. “Oh come on, that’s not a real thing, you’re just being an attention seeking hipster!” I hear you roar. I invite you to come and take a seat next to me next time I have large amounts of dairy – Not. A. Pleasant. Experience.
My first and only pet was a hamster…called hamster. Yes I know, original and witty.
I’ve been doing Slimming World for about a year and a half now and I adore it! I’m a huge fan of pasta so the fact that you can have unlimited amounts of the stuff on Slimming World is basically like living in a dreamworld for me.
I’m not into people touching my face – please don’t, that’s where I smell, see, hear and speak from, it’s a sensory overload. I mean, why you would want to anyway is beyond me, but apparently pinching cheeks, booping noses and just generally having a good old feel of other peoples faces is acceptable behaviour in modern day society.
My favourite season is Autumn, so as you might expect, I’m pretty much in a constant state of excitement as it creeps closer and closer. There are so many things to enjoy – chunky knits, autumn nail polish, fiery red trees, hot chocolate, the smell of bonfires, fireworks, just everything! I love it!
My favourite colour has always been green, so living in the country side is really quite great, everywhere I look it’s green – poifect!
My favourite number is four, I’m not entirely sure why, but one day I just really took a shine to it (weirdo).
I’m quite handy with a pair of chopsticks (if I do say so myself) I actually find it easier to eat noodles and rice with chopsticks rather than a knife and fork. I recently went on holiday to Florida where we visited the World Showcase in Epcot. I bought a really pretty pair of chopsticks from the Japan section and the girl at the counter was so excited to hear that I like to use them, she was really sweet!
I have really bendy fingers and thumbs, I think it’s fun and cool, other people think it’s creepy and weird.
I have my own Harry Potter wand, which I made from a stick in the garden (when I was little, I might add!) and dabbed a gel pen on the end of it to make it look like it contained a mystical unicorn hair or phoenix feather. I know this makes me extremely cool, please don’t be intimidated.
