Today is new years eve and the last day of 2017. This year has gone so fast and a lot has happened. I feel like I’ve changed a lot over the past year, mostly for the better, and just matured quite a bit. Overall it’s been a really good year and I’m excited for 2018. Happy new year to all of you and I really hope that 2018 brings you all the best. Thank you for supporting me throughout 2017 and I hope you continue to do so next year.
I’m starting a series called ‘Girl Talk.’ A lot of people do this and I’ve been inspired by others to do this. Even though so many others do it, I feel like everyone has different advice as we’ve all experienced different things and we all talk about different things. If you have a topic/question you’d like me to talk about/answer in my next girl talk, please let me know! I thought I’d start it off by doing a Q&A so you can all get to know me a bit better. I found these questions online and they’re from the ’25 New Get To Know Me Tag.’
Also, if you want me to start doing story times, please let me know as I have a few that might be quite funny to share and then a few not so funny, but you might still enjoy reading for various reasons. Give me suggestions too and have an amazing new year however you spend it!
- Are you named after anyone?
No, I’m not. My mum just always liked my name and it was the only one my dad agreed to call me.
- When was the last time you cried?
I’m a very emotional person and when I feel any emotion very strongly, good or bad, I cry. So I cry quite a lot because I think it’s healthy to get your emotions out. I also cry when I laugh a lot. But I think the last time I cried was yesterday when I was walking to the train station because I have shin splints because the day before I decided to run on concrete for 20 minutes in heeled boots.
- Do you have kids?
No! I’m only a teenager, I’m in high school. I don’t want to have kids until I’m about 30.
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I’ve actually thought about this before and I’m really not sure. I’d like to think I would be. I think I’d either be best friends with myself, or be my worst enemy.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I’m a naturally very sarcastic person. My sister says me and my brother are the most sarcastic people she’s ever met. I think me and my family generally are quite sarcastic and sometimes I have a sarcastic sense of humour.
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I actually don’t know what the first thing I notice is but I tend to quickly observe peoples hair colour, height and accent.
- What is your eye colour?
My eyes are light blue.
- Scary movie or happy endings?
I’m not the biggest fan of either. I’m not that into movies to be honest. I’d much rather spend my time doing something else.
- Favourite smells?
This is so typical but I love autumnal/winter scents like cinnamon.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Around 3,700 miles or 6,000 kilometres. So not that far really.
- Do you have any special talents?
The short answer is no. I’m not talented at all which I kind of wish I was. It would nice to be better than other people at something.
- Where were you born?
One of the most beautiful cities in the world. It does come somewhere on this list if you’re really that interested.
- What are your hobbies?
I don’t really have any of the typical hobbies like dancing or gymnastics – I’m pretty awful at them to be honest. So I guess this is. I do really enjoy writing posts and I think I’m going to love doing this girl talk series.
- Do you have any pets?
Yes I have a black and white cat. She’s the most adorable little thing ever!
- Do you have any siblings?
Yes. I have an older brother and an older sister, so I’m the youngest.
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
I have absolutely no idea. I’m young and I have plenty of time to figure it out. If you have no idea what you want to do either, no matter what age you are, it’s totally okay, you have all the time in the world to figure it out and you will eventually.
- Who was your first best friend?
Well, I’m not going to share her name, but we’ve been friends for ever and I’m still really good friends with her to this day. We don’t get to see each other a lot as we live in different cities now but we talk a lot and now that we’re old enough to travel to other cities alone, I think we’ll start seeing each other more. I think we’ve managed to stay friends for so long because we share similar interests and our personalities match quite well.
- How tall are you?
I’m 5’7″ or 171cm, so I’m fairly tall but I love it.
- Funniest moment throughout school?
Honestly, I have so many. And I’m still in school and funny things happen all the time. I’ll probably think of some hilarious things and do story times on them so look out for them. I feel like things me and my friends do that we think are funny, no one else will. But I will get back to you for that question.
- How many countries have you visited?
I’ve visited 6 countries and I’ll be visiting a new country next year which I’m so excited about.
- What was your favourite/worst subject in High School?
I’m in high school right now and my favourite subjects are biology and geography and my least favourites were/are PE, modern studies, art and home economics (I’ve dropped all of them apart from PE).
- What is your favourite drink? Animal? Perfume?
I drink water all the time but if we’re talking alcoholic drinks, my favourite is just straight vodka. My favourite animal is a cat and my favorite perfume is Chanel No5.
- What would you (or have you) name your children?
I have a few names even though I don’t want children until I’m 30. One of my favourite names for a girl is Emilia and one of my favourites for a boy is Daniel.
- What sports do you play/have you played?
I’m awful at sports so I don’t play any and I haven’t ever played any. Unless you count skiing as a sport. I used to do that and I was quite good at it.
- Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?
I could do a whole post on this if any of you would like me to but a few that I love just off the top of my head are Imogenation (Imogen Hudson), Simplynessa15 (Vanessa Martinez) and Hannah Witton.
- How many girlfriends/boyfriends have you had?
I’ve had a boyfriend but I don’t know if I’d even class it as a proper relationship. We were together for about three months but I think I’ll do a whole story time on our relationship because some ridiculous things happened and I did some pretty stupid things.
- Favourite memory from childhood?
I hate questions like this because I can’t just pick one memory! Not one specific thing comes to mind.
- How would you describe your fashion sense?
- What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
I have an android. I just don’t care what phone I have, it’s just a phone.
- Tell us one of your bad habits!
I’m getting into a habit of swearing, I always forget peoples names, talking in class, losing focus, twisting my hair round my fingers… I seem to have a lot!
Happy new year guys!
