First of all, thank you for 50 followers! I haven’t been blogging for very long at all so it’s really rewarding to know that people have taken an interest in my writing, and I’m very grateful to all of you who’ve followed me or like any of my posts; I was expecting to only get a couple of followers! So everyone gets to know me a little better, I thought I’d do the 20 questions tag. I spent a while going through tumblr finding questions and then picked out 20 to answer for all of you. Enjoy!
How old are you?
17 years young!
What’s your zodiac sign?
I’m born in April, so I’m an Aries- a fire sign.
Who’s your celebrity crush?
If you’ve had a look at some of my other posts you’ll know I have a massive crush on Cara Delevingne! I just think she’s gorgeous, and I love her personality as well.
The Secret Life of Bees (also my favourite book). It’s such a beautiful moving story, and all of the characters are so diverse. I also love the underlying political message supporting civil rights.
How many countries have you visited?
Besides places in England, I’ve visited Berlin (Germany), New York City (America) and Kenya. All of these visits were amazing, although my volunteering trip to Kenya was definitely my favourite, it was so rewarding and so fascinating to learn about such a rich culture.
The last time you cried, and why?
The last time I cried was last week because I couldn’t sleep. It sounds odd but I’m such an insomniac at the moment and it’s really frustrating sometimes!
This is a tough question, but my favourite song is probably Oh No! by Marina and the Diamonds, I would definitely go listen to it if you haven’t heard it!
Do you have any phobias?
I really hate the thought of being sick. I’m not sure why, it’s probably the thought of it more than anything else but I get so anxious when I feel ill because I’m worried about being sick. Plus spiders are definitely a fear of mine, it’s not a phobia, but they really creep me out…
What animal would you be, and why?
I’ve often been told I look like a Deer, so I suppose a deer. But I think personality wise I’m like a cat; adventurous, but also comfort loving, and very lazy!
Do you have any tattoo’s or piercings?
I’m too young to get any tattoos, but I have three lobe piercings in each ear. On my right ear I have a helix piercing and a tragus piercing, then on my left ear I have two forward helix piercings, although I want a couple more. I also have a belly button piercing which I got done a couple of months ago.
Do you have any strange talents or party tricks?
I can play the recorder through my nose…enough said.
What do you feel strongly about?
As you probably know, I feel really strongly about LGBT+ rights. In fact I feel strongly about equality in general, I think you should have equal opportunities no matter what gender you are, what ethnicity or race you are, whether you’re disabled or not, or what you sexuality is. Everyone is equally as valuable.
What’s your favourite food?
I like most kinds of food, I’m not really a fussy eater, but I definitely have a weakness for salty foods like crisps and chips. I also love watermelon, it’s so delicious, and very refreshing as well.
What five items could you not live without?
My phone, lip balm, my faux leather jacket, blotting papers (because my skin is so oily) and hand sanitizer (I like to be clean, what can I say)
What’s the last dream you had?
I dreamt I was out running through my local park, and then when I got home I wanted a drink so I made a banana and potato smoothie, and was then surprised when it tasted horrible. I’m sure that must mean something…
How tall are you?
I’m five foot three and a half, so pretty short, but still tall enough to get on theme park rides!
Do you have any pets?
I have a lovely tortoiseshell cat named Lily who’s been in the family for around 12 years now. My Grandma also has a golden labrador called Hattie who we all love to pieces, even though she’s not the most intelligent dog in the world!
Who’s your favourite music artist?
Another tough question, but I do really love Marina and the Diamonds. My Chemical Romance, Florence + the Machine and Colbie Caillat are also up there, they’re all brilliant.
Current relationship status?
I’m single at the moment- its hard to maintain a relationship and keep up with your studies so its probably for the best!
What’s your idea of the perfect date?
Probably just watching a good movie and getting to know each other, its simple, but it really helps you connect. And lots of cuddling, I’m a sucker for it!
What’s your favourite quote?
‘Its not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain’
