20 random facts about me

30/01/2013


(i'm not that vain to have myself as my background it's just for this post)

1. i have a huge thing for pretty stationary, especially notepads
2. i find making lists extremely therapeutic (even more so when written in pretty notepads)
3. the other half has nicknamed me a baby dinosaur because of how much i'm able to eat
4. cinnamon is my favourite scent/flavour (especially if it's ice cream!)
5. even though i live in the north of england, i was actually born in cambridge
6. i am obsessed with the television series criminal minds
7. i enjoy reading about serial killers and how their minds work (this makes me sound so sadistic)
8. i'm a university drop out
9. i have a huge fear of rejection.
10. it's not something i should admit but i'm a enormous final fantasy fan and have completed all the playstation games.
11. i have a huge fear of talking to strangers, unless they are associated with someone i know. this means if someone tries to speak to me i either hold myself to move away from them or just won't respond to what they say. (this mainly happens on nights out)
12. i used to be a major calorie/fat counter and run five miles almost everyday.
13. i want to visit japan more than any other country.
14. blogging keeps me sane.
15. i'm the worst person ever for saving. even when i say i'm not spending i find myself ordering something online.
16. i'd love to appear on come dine with me.
17. i'm the oldest of three siblings.
18. whether i'm getting ready for a night out or just going somewhere shopping i always take an hour and a half to get ready. i'm horrendous at just trying to get ready quickly, i always get distracted. the fella always gets annoyed because i take so long.
19. i'm such a lazy person, i always wait to the very last possible second to do something. whether that be an assignment (when i did have to do them) or getting out of bed, or leaving for work.
20. i obviously don't hear it myself when i speak, but i apparently have a really blunt tone. this means even though i think i sound normal when i say something i can sound really patronising and end up offending people. i really don't mean it!

  21. I feel like this list was secretly written about me. My obsession with sationary and lists is unreal, resulting in boxes filled with pretty notebooks and journals. Along with 7, 8, 9, 11, 15, and 20.
    Your blog is so adorable and lovely by the way.
