GET TO KNOW ME TAG - 21 QUESTIONS

Due to this being my first ever blog post I wanted to keep it simple and sweet. So, what better to do than a 'Get To Know Me' tag?

1. Are you named after anyone?
No, though right up until I was born I was almost definitely going to be called Sarah. 

2. When was the last time you cried? 
I genuinely don't remember despite being rather emotional at times. 

3. Do you have kids? 
No, though I do have a little sister and she's more than enough to deal with!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? 
I've often joked around with my friends, asking how on earth they put up with me. So, unfortunately, probably not.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? 
Yes. I try to be considerate about it though, so I guess it's not that bad?

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? 
It's not something that necessarily springs to mind but it's definitely a once in a life time opportunity so I don't see why not.  

7. What's your favourite cereal? 
Shreddies, very boring I know!

8. What's the first thing you notice about people? 
When meeting somebody new it would have to be their eyes, though when meeting friends it would always be something that is different from the norm.

9. What is your eye colour? 
Green.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? 
I do love watching a good horror movie with the right company.

11. Favourite smells? 
I love the smell of concrete after/while it's raining.

12. Summer or winter? 
Winter/autumn!

13. Computer or television? 
Computer due to all the school work I have to do at home.

14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home?
As I'm only 15 I haven't managed to travel much, so Tenerife.

15. Do you have any special talents?
 As much as I'd like to say yes, I don't.

16. Where were you born? 
England.

17. What are your hobbies?
At high school I belonged to so many different groups and clubs but since leaving everything has fizzled down. Hopefully blogging will reinforce me with the motivation I need.

18. Do you have any pets? 
I have a Chocolate Labrador called Candy. I also used to have a hamster called Kelly, which I named after the artist Kelly Clarkson.

19. Favourite movie? 
I'm not a big lover of films, though when growing up my heart belonged to the 'Sex God' from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging - I then went onto reading 8 of the books, I really was obsessed!

20. Do you have any siblings? 
As mentioned, I have one little sister.

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? 
It seems like such a long way into the future, so I'm not 100% sure where I want to be in years to come. However, I do currently know I want to study A-levels before going to university. I hope to pursue a career in Media, which is why my Media teacher recommended me to start this blog.
