20 Questions to get to know me!

20 Questions to get to know me!

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…

The Questions…

  1. 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.
    be yourself
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. What makes you feel accomplished?
    Helping people. I really do love helping people out or doing something nice for someone.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!journal
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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!!
  17. 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!Snowdonia
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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!

    I found out I was a carrier for CF after completing my family. I was going through egg donation as I really wanted to help someone else have a baby. It’s not easy, you have to take a pile of meds to stimulate egg production and it doesn’t make you feel great. I got a call one morning from the clinic telling me I couldn’t carry on as they’d found I was a carrier and I was devastated. I’d wanted to do that so much – took a long time to get over that, if I ever have. (The not being able to donate I mean – not the CF bit)

    This is really interesting to read – much more than the “What’s your favourite colour?” questions. I may pinch this at a later date!

    These are such deep, thought provoking questions! I don’t think I am brave enough to share deeper answers on my blog just yet but I absolutely loved your post! x

    What a brilliant idea for a post Livvy, loved reading and I definitely feel like I ‘know’ you a bit better now! I think I’m going to add this type of post into my drafts for another time too! I don’t know about you, but I kinda feel like we click because of our illnesses? I can totally relate to no. 7 on here, I was having an op in a neurology hospital in London to remove a gland behind my breastbone, and they cut through and artery and nearly killed me! Blood transfusions and a stay in ITU and I was lucky to come out a couple of weeks later! I’ve almost met my end 4 other times but that’s a long story lol! Lots of love xxx

    I love reading these and getting to be nosey! I related to so many of your answers, especially the first, I’m really trying to live life how I want it. I used to be embarrassed about going in charity shops and now I’m like show me the bargains 🤣 Also your ex sounds like a jerk and I’m glad you’ve found someone better! I may have to nick these 20 questions at some point x

      Hahaha yes!! I love finding a fab bargain in a charity shop.
      Yep, he was definitely a bad’un but at least he taught me to never accept that sort of behaviour ever again.
      Oh definitely do, I’d love to read your answers 🙂 xx

    Really enjoyed reading this! You seem like a great person with a brilliant attitude towards life. I’m sorry to hear about all the challenges you’ve faced, but it seems like you’ve come out of them much stronger and that’s fantastic. Also, I struggle with talking to people, too – I trip over my words ALL the time when I’m having the most simple conversations. It’s such a hard life being shy sometimes! x

      Aw that’s a really lovely thing to say Ruth thank you! It’s so annoying isn’t it, I feel like kicking myself every time I stumble over my words xx
