20 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I realised the other day that I haven't done a 'get to know me' type of post since my first ever blog post so I figured it was about time I changed that. I love getting to know a bit more about the person behind the blog and also I'm just nosey so these kinds of posts are right up my street!

1. I keep everything. Packaging, wrapping paper... you name it. 
2. I hate being in the dark. Always have, probably always will.
3. English is my thing. It's always been my favourite subject and it's what I'm currently studying as a degree. Writing and reading will always be my biggest passions!
4. I absolutely hate when people call others 'sad' for liking something. If you make someone feel embarrassed for getting excited about something we'll probably never be friends. Let people like whatever they want to like!
5. I cry at everything. I'm such an emotional person and it doesn't take much for me to cry sad tears or happy tears. 
6. I love going to bed just so I can live in my own imagination before I fall asleep. I hope I'm not the only one who imagines things they want to happen!
7. I dream every night without fail. Sometimes, my dreams feel so real that I've actually woken up and thought that what I dreamt actually happened.
8. I am a hufflepuff. A lot of people assume I would be a ravenclaw, but hufflepuff is where my heart is!
9. Up until the age of 12, I was a complete tomboy. I was football mad and didn't wear a skirt until high school.
10. I am a complete and utter hopeless romantic. My love for books has given me unrealistic expectations of romance.
11. I used to do karate and was pretty damn good at it. I made it all the way to my red belt assessment before I quit and I'm honestly gutted that I didn't stick at it!
12. I have an overly obsessive mind. In many different ways, some good, some terrible.
13. I really want a tattoo. I have so many different ideas for what tattoos I want but I'm the biggest wimp ever and I'm so scared of the pain!
14. I hate sauce. I have to have all of my food plain and dry. I physically cannot stand the texture and taste of any sauces!
15. I'm scared of the sea. I love swimming when it's in a pool but when it's in the sea I freak out. I'm not a strong swimmer and I'm terrified of the creatures lurking beneath me!
16. I love having my hair played with. It is probably the most relaxing thing in the entire world. If I could hire someone to play with my hair all day, I would.
17. Coffee chocolates are my absolute favourite. Followed closely by strawberry and orange creams.
18. I used to have an ear stretcher. It was only a tiny 3mm one because I was too scared of having a giant hole in my ear forever, but I genuinely really liked it!
19. I am an incredibly nostalgic person. I really want to do some more blog posts on things from my childhood!
20. I absolutely love traditions and really struggle with change. This is definitely something I need to work on!

Hope you enjoyed!
