15 Random Facts About Me

When I was younger I used to love writing 'fact files' about myself so I'm surprised my inner 10-year-old hasn't already reared her fact file head on this blog. So I thought I'd write a more personal post today and share a bit about myself!

1 - In my 25 years I have lived in Newcastle, Beverley, London and Hull. All four of those places feel like home and I'm never quite sure how to answer the question 'where do you come from?'

2 - When I was little I was always really tall for my age, but I stopped growing aged 13 and most of my friends overtook me!

3 - I applied to audition for the part of Hermione in Harry Potter but my Dad forgot to send off my application form...still hurts to this day. 

4 - Only my parents, boyfriend and two of my friends know about my blog. It's my secret hobby!

5 - I've been to Disneyland Paris 7 times and yes I would go again!

6 - I have at least eight different varieties of herbal tea in the cupboard because I am truly obsessed.

7 - I have a degree in Drama and Theatre Arts. I loved it, but given the choice again I would probably pick something more practical that I would actually use!

- I once had a rabbit for 20 minutes before it ran away. Really good caregiver right here...

- Cereal is my absolute favourite food. Such exotic tastes I know. 

10 - Me and one of my best friends once watched all of the Harry Potter films in 19 hours. It was great. 

11 - I am absolutely terrified of vomit. I used to think that was a really weird phobia until I realised there were so many other people with it too.

12 - I really want a ginger kitten and a grey whippet. 

13 - I once won an award for making the most money in a year behind the bar I worked at. I was super proud.

14 - I've never been to America and I'd love to go to so many places there!

15 - I have one sister. She has a chromosome deletion among other things, but essentially she can't walk or talk and both her physical and mental development is a lot slower than it would usually be.

Hope you enjoyed this slightly random post. Let me know if we have anything in common!

  2. Ahh I love this post hun, so nice to feel like I can get to know you a bit more. How amazing would it be to play Hermione, I'd never let my Dad forget that one either ;)


    1. Thank you :) i know I was so annoyed with him at the time haha and it always comes in handy to remind him of it! Xx

  3. I totally agree with you, I have moved a lot and Brighton, Portsmouth and Worthing feel like home, it's a weird but lucky feeling I think! I have also been to Disney loads, you can never be too old for it ;) xxx
