25 Completely Utterly Totally Random Facts About Me

Another random facts post, I couldn't help but jump on the bandwagon currently taking the blogging world by storm. I sometimes feel I don't put out my full personality in my blog, so I love doing a few personal posts or tags here and there. I hope you find these interesting, I've loved reading other peoples!

1. I've never broken a bone or been stung by a wasp or bee
2. I sucked my thumb until the age of eleven
3. I've applied to study Communications and Media at university, with hope of someday breaking into the world of PR or Marketing - I reaaaally want to go to the University of Leeds. I changed my mind about what I wanted to study at university six times, finally returning to the course I wanted to study in the first place
4. One of my relatives invented the lawnmower
5. I'm in my third year of studying A Levels, otherwise known as Year 14, I also moved to a new college where I'm currently studying Sociology and History A Levels, having already achieved an A in Media Studies and a B in English Language and Literature
6. My most played song on iTunes is Latch (feat. Sam Smith) by Disclosure
7. Last summer I spent three weeks in Poland teaching English to five to ten year olds, it was an interesting but very fun experience. We had past criminals staying in the hotel room next door (DODGY) and they ran into my room when I was in nothing but a towel shouting 'Police! Hide us!' it was a very awkward situation
8. I absolutely love going to gigs, my favourites have been Foster the People, Friendly Fires, and Example. I was very lucky to get tickets to BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend last Summer
9. I only flew for the first time in Summer 2011 when I went to Spain and I absolutely loved it
10. I rarely get more than six hours sleep a night and most nights I stay up until 4am, I prefer the night time
11. I have a scratch away world map on my wall, surrounded with tickets and postcards from my travels
12. I have really really weird dreams and lots feature the apocalypse, zombie and alien invasions
13. I've been using a £10 Samsung phone for two years because I'm so stubborn about getting an iPhone
14. I've lived in the same town, same house and until two years ago the same bedroom my entire life
15. I went through Winter with only dolly shoes, I'm a very fussy person when it comes to shoes
16. I'm a complete social media geek and addict and spend faaar too much time watching Youtube videos
17. I was selected by Channel 4 to attend a Music Journalism workshop, it was awesome
18. I literally leave everything to the last minute, but somehow tend to always 'pull it out of the bag'
19. I hate going places by myself, I always feel very awkward. I'm hoping university will change this
20. I went to Disneyland Paris when I was six and got separated from my entire family, I ended up going to the lost children's place and watching French Disney films and drawing until they found me
21. Last February I was lucky enough to go to Los Angeles with my school Media department. I met Mumford and Sons in LAX airport, saw Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, Bradley Walsh (hahaha) the producer of The Big Bang Theory and one of my teachers saw David Guetta
22. I haven't had my hair cut since last April, the longest I've ever left it I wear my hair down every single day
23. My first crushes were Leonardo Dicaprio and Zack from Saved By The Bell
24. I had an unhealthy obsession with the film Titanic when I was younger, and I'd always turn the television round during the car scene so I wouldn't get embarrassed watching it in front of my parents
25. I love watching documentaries, I highly recommend Louis Theroux and Michael Moore

  2. I applied and got accepted to that exact degree at the University of Leeds this year! But, despite being a major social media geek like yourself AND someone who dreams of PR/Marketing, I decided Uni wasn't for me so I've withdrawn.

  10. Fact 7 really shouldn't have made me laugh but it did - it sounds like something straight out of a film!

    I love 'Disclosure' too but it reminds me of another song that I just can't put my finger on - it's one of those songs that you feel like you've heard before, even though it's brand new! x
