Hi everyone, Happy October 1st!
I’ve seen the tag floating around on Twitter that is #blogtober, and although I’m not exactly committing to a daily post, I’m going to try! Seeing the tag is definitely giving me some motivation to finally get some ideas down onto my blog. The end of the year is rapidly approaching and I’m hoping to give myself, my blog and my social media a big boost to get 2018 off to the best possible start!
I thought for my first post of October, I’m going to do a little ‘get to know me’ post. I will also tag a few bloggers whose writing I have been loving, ’cause I really want to connect with you and get to know you all!
So, without further ado, here are some (hopefully) interesting insights into my little life.
- Do you have any Nicknames?
Not really, my boyfriend has pet names for me and a few of my friends started calling me ‘Maz’ as a joke, but it kind of stuck…
- What age are you?
I turn 24 this month!
- What is your zodiac sign?
Libra, and I totally fit the profile.
- What is your favourite colour?
Generally I say blue but it really depends what we’re talking about…I love dark colours (including black), metallic and of course, glitter ✨
- Do you go to School/College/University?
I went to all 3. I graduated from Cardiff University with a BA in Spanish.
- Do you have any pets?
I live with various animals, but the one who is ‘mine’ is my German Shepherd cross, Bowie.
- Introvert or extrovert?
A bit of both, generally more introverted.
- Favourite song?
I have a lot of favourite songs…but if I had to choose only one, it would be Cape Canaveral by Conor Oberst.
- What colour socks are you wearing?
I’m not wearing socks right now but today I wore pink ones.
- Have you ever been famous?
No, but I’m working on it 😉
- What type of music do you like?
Basically all rock music. I’m still a little emo kid at heart, so my favourites are the early 2000s ‘emo’ bands.
- Have you ever been skinny dipping?
I’ve never had the opportunity, but I totally would.
- How many pillows do you sleep with?
I can only sleep with one, but I have a double bed so two I guess?
- What do you typically have for breakfast?
During the week I don’t really have time for breakfast so I usually just grab some of those breakfast biscuits and a coffee. At the weekend, I usually have eggs or something with tortillas.
- Can you speak any other languages?
I can speak Spanish and a couple of words in French and Catalan. I always want to learn more languages but it’s kind of hard now that I’m not in school anymore!
- Favourite swear word?
- What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?
I’m pretty terrible at sleeping, I’ve gone 3 days without sleep.
- Have you ever had a secret admirer?
Not really, or if I have, they kept it very secret.
- Are you scared bees or wasps?
I love bees, but I’m scared of wasps.
- Favourite animal?
Predictable, but I fucking love dogs.
- How long does it take for you to get ready?
Not long. Probably about half an hour, not including showering.
- Do you sing to yourself?
I sing along with music, even though I’m terrible.
- What was the last thing you purchased?
I bought really boring stuff from Walmart – a new toothbrush, makeup wipes and period supplies.
- Least favourite school subject?
I hated maths and was really, really bad at it. I think I could have liked history, but I hated the teacher so much I dropped it as soon as I could.
- Favourite school subject?
Art. I also loved languages and RE.
- Something you’ve always wanted to do?
Publish a novel (I’m working on it.)
- Do you correct people when they make mistakes?
It depends. I don’t correct little mistakes like grammar but if someone’s facts are wrong and it’s important, then I’ll say something. Also I’m a teacher, so during the week it’s kind of my job to correct mistakes, even little ones.
- Are you ticklish?
Oh God, so ticklish.
- Who was your first real crush?
I had little (big) crushes in Primary school. I remember having a huuuuge crush on Orlando Bloom in the Lord of the Rings movies…
- How many piercings do you have?
Right now I have 8, but I used to have about 15.
- What colour is your hair?
My natural colour is blondeish red, but I really want to dye it dark brown.
- What colour are your eyes?
Sometimes green, sometimes brown.
- Do you have any siblings?
I have a big bro.
- What makes you angry?
Not a lot of stuff. My job makes me mad sometimes and I have petty arguments with my boyfriend, but it would take a lot to make me lose my temper.
- Have you already thought of baby names, and if so, what are they?
I try not to think about baby names because it makes me too broody, but yes, I have. Mateo and Luna.
So, I’m sorry this was kind of long (I actually cut the list of questions down from 100!) but I really hope you guys will leave a comment or copy this onto your blog so I can read your answers! The bloggers I am tagging are It’s Actually Han, Life of Bee, What Abigail Says, Tea and Maz, and Hebah Pervaiz. Check out their gorgeous blogs!
Thanks for stopping by!
