Sorry I haven’t written a post here for an absolute AGE. I’ve realised that I don’t want to ever force a post just for the sake of meeting deadlines. I’d rather create a good (I hope) post every so often than just crap twice a week. Quality not quantity dahhling (for me anyway).
I do wish I could churn out amazing post after amazing post but that’s just not the way I roll…
Anyhoo, I thought it’d be good for me and you to get to know each other better so I’ve found 20 ‘deep’ questions to answer. I didn’t want to just answer the generic ‘what’s your favourite colour’ type questions (it’s turquoise btw) so here goes…
- What’s your philosophy in life?
Don’t worry about what other people think of you. This is a recent philosophy I have started to live by. From when I started high school up until I was 28 I have always gone about life worrying what others thought of me. I’d not do certain things like go into charity shops in case someone I knew saw me and thought I was poor or something stupid to that effect. Or I’d not wear a item of clothing I loved for the simple fact that nobody else was wearing it.
Now I don’t care. I write what I want, I go where I want, I say what I want and I DO what I want. I don’t follow the crowd anymore.
- What is the one thing you would like to change about yourself?
To be more confident when speaking. I don’t mean public speaking, I mean like just ordinary chit chat to people. I seem to get nervous and stumble over my words… Some days are better than others like but I’d definitely love to be a bit more confident when talking to people.
- Are you religious or spiritual?
Yes I’m religious. I don’t attend mass but I pray and talk to God. God has been there a LOT for me in my life and I believe I wouldn’t be here without His help.
I’m not someone who forces my beliefs on others so you wont find me quoting the Bible on my blog or social media.
- Do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert?
Most definitely an introvert! After a day of being around people I love nothing better than to get into my bed and hide away from the world.
Don’t get me wrong, I like going out for meals and even the odd party. But I do enjoy getting home too!
- Which parent are you closer to and why?
I’m going to choose my mum for this as she is the one I’m around most of the time. My dad is usually out working or tinkering with his latest gardening project! I do consider myself close to both of them however but I think my mum just pips it for being the one I chat to most.
- What was the best phase of your life?
I have to say this one now. I feel I can be myself with the world now and blogging has DEFINITELY brought that out in me. Feeling comfortable in your own skin is the best thing ever and my anxiety is at an all time low.
I’m also doing well with exercise so my health is good at the moment. I’m managing to hit all my goals so really happy with that too.
- What was the worst phase in your life?
The worst phase in my life was when something went wrong during a routine operation and I could have died. It feels like just a nightmare now but at the time it was very real and very very tough.
- Is what you’re doing now what you’ve always wanted to do growing up?
Definitely not! If I had my health I’d have been in the Police force by now. Maybe one day I can get my health good enough to volunteer as a Special Constable or even just doing office work for the force.
- What makes you feel accomplished?
Helping people. I really do love helping people out or doing something nice for someone.
- Would you ever take someone back if they cheated on you?
No, I wouldn’t. The trust would be completely destroyed and I don’t want to waste my life worrying whether I’d be hurt again. You get one chance and one chance only with me.
- If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone cheer you up?
Left alone. I’m really snappy when in a bad mood and say horrible things to the ones closest to me. Especially at that time of the month… My poor boyfriend doesn’t half get some snappy comments.
- Did you ever write a journal?
Yes, I love writing in my journal! Its so comforting and I love reading back over past entries. I only started a journal 2 years ago as I wanted somewhere to record all my memories in life and I was obsessed with watching vids of people flicking through theirs on YouTube.
My absolute favourite ‘journaller’ is Stephi Wild. I adore her journals!
- What are you most thankful for?
To be alive. That I wake up every morning and am lucky enough to see the sun. Lucky enough to hear the birds and lucky enough to have my little pup in my life.
- Are you confrontational?
On a whole, no. I had to confront someone a couple of months ago when they bumped into my car and scraped it. They then refused to acknowledge they did anything to my car so I got mega pissed off.
- What are your thoughts about online dating/Tinder?
I know a few people who have met their other halves on Tinder and I think its a great way for people who don’t really go out much to find like minded people. But I cant help but feel a bit sad for the whole dating game though. I love hearing how people met their partners and Tinder just seems so… shallow? Going off a photo and a couple of sentences wouldn’t be enough for me anyway.
I’m just an old fashioned romantic, what do you reckon?
- What did your past relationship teach you?
Don’t ever be ashamed of your disability or be around people who are ashamed of it either!
My last boyfriend never came to visit me in hospital because he didn’t want his mother finding out I had Cystic Fibrosis. I felt ashamed and nobody should ever make anyone feel ashamed of themselves never mind their partner!!
- What’s on your bucket list this year?
To do a zipwire!! I saw they have an amazing one in Llandudno in North Wales and I really want to do it!
- What do you think about when you’re by yourself?
Oh friggin’ hell, all sorts… Most of the time I probably just plan what I’m going to do in the week.
- What is the one thing that people misunderstand about you?
I’m really quiet when I meet someone new and seem REALLY awkward and even snotty. I’m just so shy at times… Takes me a little while to open up to someone new.
- Who is that person who you can talk to about anything?
Apart from my boyfriend, it’d have to be my best friend Ev. I met Ev just 2 years ago on the ward we both stay on when we’re ill. She has Cystic Fibrosis like me.
I’ve had best friends in the past but Ev trumps them all, we like all the same things! Well apart from her love of horror films… She always gives her complete and honest opinion and is the most trustworthy person I have ever met.
I hope you’ve enjoyed finding out a bit more about me and the type of person I am.
Now I want to find out about YOU!!!
Please do this as I really think it’d be fun and a fab way for us all to get to know each other…
Write just 1 thing about you in the comments below. It can be anything!
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
