Get To Know Me | A - Z

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Since I have been interacting with lots of new blogger friends I decided I would do a 'get to know me' post so you could all, um, get to know me a little bit better by means of some useless facts about me! I saw this interview type post floating around the blogosphere and I thought I would give it a go. Ok, let's get to it shall we.

A. Attached or Single I've been very single for the past 6 months and I like it!

B. Best Friend? My best friend is someone I met on the very first day of primary school when we were 4 years old. From playing with barbies to 5am taxis home from crazy nights out, we've grown up together. So much love.

C. Cake or Pie? Cake! but in moderation or I will be sick. I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I really love red velvet cake/cupcakes at the minute though!

D. Day of Choice? Saturday, I get to have an often badly needed sleep in and spend the whole day being unproductive and lazy. Yay.

E. Essential Item? My phone. A very predictable item but it's like an extra limb; trying to cut down on the dependancy haha!

F. Favourite Colour? Mint/turquoise. It's my blog theme colour, my bedroom theme colour and I have a lot of clothes that colour. 

G. Gummy Bears or Worms? I really don't like those kind of sweets. Just looking at them makes me feel like my teeth are rotting in my head haha. I do like the natural confectionery snakes though!

H. Home town? The lovely Galway, Ireland. Well, really I have no home town as I live in the countryside but it's the nearest little city (20 mins drive)

I. Indulgence? Pizza. It's so bad for me but some evenings I just like to have a big cheesy pizza to make my day 10x better haha. 

J. January or July? July without a doubt. I would say July is probably my favourite month overall and January my least. I love summer and January is pretty depressing to me!

K. Kids? I would love to have kids some day but not for a very long time.

L. Life is not complete without...? Family and friends! at the end of the day, people are all that matter. Material items add nothing to our lives. 

M. Memory you cherish? I left this question to the end and I still cannot think of something to put here. There are so many memories I cherish, it is a combination of them all that make up my life and who I am so I don't think I can pick just one memory that I cherish over all the others. Sorry, I'm cheating!

N. Numbers of brothers/sisters? I have one brother and one sister. They are both older than me. My sister is 36 and my brother is 31 so I am very much the baby in my family and I feel like I was an only child really as when I was a child they weren't kids! 

O. Oranges or Apples? That depends. I really like mandarins when they are in season and I like nice hard juicy green apples but sometimes you can get really disgusting oranges and apples. I'll go with apples as they seem to be nice more often haha. 

P. Pet Peeves? People being two faced and talking behind peoples backs! I also hate when guys spit, eewwww. 

Q. Quotes? This is kind of a morbid depressing one but I really like it "You have spent an infinite amount of years waiting to be born and you will spend another infinite amount of years being dead, eat your cereal and go outside" -  it really makes ya think!

R. Reasons to smile? Nicky, family, ice-cream, my blog, my blog friends, my students, blue skies, music and so much more.

S. Season of choice? Summer all the way. I can't wait for it. I love the smell of freshly cut grass, of palm trees. The long days, 99 ice cream cones and smoothies, driving with the windows down, going to the beach. Ugh I just cannot wait. 

T. Tea or Coffee? I love both but to me tea is the solution to all of life's problems. It's just so relaxing.
U. Unknown fact about me? I accidently stabbed myself with a pencil when I was a child and to this day I still have a pencil led inside the skin on my knee. True story.

V. Vegetable? I really love vegetables. I like carrots, parsnips, sprouts, brocolli, cabbage and peas. 

W. Worst habit? Staying up too late. No matter what, I will stay up later than I should even if I am tired. It's 1am now as I write this!

X. X-Ray or Ultra-sound? I've had a few x-rays when I was a child because I had a really sore shoulder (woke up most nights crying!) for several years. We never found out what it was. I spent years, probably about age 8-11 trying to get it better and nothing worked. I then went to one of those weird 'healer' people who puts their hand on you and says a few words and I haven't looked back since!

Y. Your favourite trip? My favourite trip was probably to Barcelona in 2013. It was such an amazing and beautiful city with some of the most amazing architecture you could imagine. I really want to go back some day.

Z. Zodiac sign? My Zodiac sign is Aquarius. Not much more to say here? haha. 

And there we have it, you now have a whole bunch of useless information about me, you're welcome!

If any of you decide to do this post, let me know and I will have a peek.

Barcelona looks like a beautiful city! And mint/turquoise is such a pretty color. One of my favorite shirts is a mint color! :)

I'm a summer girl myself and mint is a pretty color, and I dream of sleeping on Saturdays- too many kids:)

Love this! I'm so bad for staying up late too - I'll curl up on the sofa at like 11:30, knowing that I'll fall asleep, but just refusing to actually admit defeat and go to bed!

My worst habit is staying up late too - I used to have really bad insomnia (but don't really now), but I have such bad habits because of it!

I loved reading it! Barcelona is also one of my favorite cities I've ever visited, it's been a long time since I've been there, I would love to come back there :)

Oh my goodness, Barcelona would be amazing! That city is definitely on my bucket list! :) I love pizzaaaaa. All the pizza for all the days. I'm 100% convinced that pizza can solve most of my life problems ha. Well, pizza and bucket loads of coffee (and mint chocolate cupcakes). Yummm. I might have to borrow this from you and do my own introduction post on my blog!
