Get To Know Me Better!

Hi there and welcome to my blog! Recently I have got some new followers on my blog and on twitter (what?! how!? huh?!) I really don’t know how that happened but I’m so glad that each one of you comes to my tiny part of the internet! So today I thought I’d write a post where I answer some questions and you guys can all get to know me a little bit better! I wrote a post last year where I told you 25 Facts About Me! and I hope you enjoy this post!

What is your favourite book? My favourite book is called All Quiet On The Western Front. It’s a book about World War One from the perspective of an 18 year old German soldier. It’s heart-breaking and so thought provoking. It really makes you think about life on the German side. I had to read it in college and I fell in love, my original copy is so dog eared and tatty and I have bought a new one but I still love reading my original copy.

What is your favourite ice cream flavour? I’d have to say either toffee or mint. If we’re going to go with Ben and Jerry’s flavours my favourite is Home Sweet Honeycomb. Ohh now I want ice cream….

What is your most embarrassing childhood memory? I got locked in a toilet when I was about 4 and I was panicking so a teacher (a very old woman) climbed over and it was terrifying to watch her nearly fall… Everyone laughed that an old lady had to save me… Also I went down a slide with no underwear on… lets not dwell on that!

What are your favourite 3 tv shows? I’d have to say Miranda (my mum said I remind her of Miranda.. not sure if it’s a compliment or not but I’ll take it..) Merlin (brilliant show, I’ve seen it all the way through multiple times) and Death in Paradise (it’s a detective show where you have NO IDEA who dun it.)

What is the most beautiful place you’ve been to? Italy. Florence in particular. I LOVE it there. I went once in high school and then me and my boyfriend went back about 3 years ago. Honestly it is such a beautiful place and the people are amazing. I would go back in a heat beat I really would.

What accomplishment are you most proud of? My degree. I didn’t get the best mark and I kind of screwed up in third year but the fact that I made it to the end makes me so proud. I started my degree in September 2014 and by December 2014 I was ready to quit. I am honestly so glad and proud of myself I finished and graduated.

Who would you like to live as for a day? I’m going to go with Queen Elizabeth. I know that’s a little odd but I’d love to see what being the queen would be like. She seems like she’s down to earth and a good laugh (and I’d love to meet Prince William and Prince Harry – I’ve got a kind of crush on Harry!)

When you’re having a bad day what do you do? I watch TV, read a book, have a lovely hot bubble bath (if it’s a really bad day with a face mask) and dance around to music that’s on full blast and have a mini-party.

Using one word, describe your family. Okay this is impossible. Lets go with AMAZING!

What is the scariest movie you’ve ever seen? I don’t really know… I can’t think of which movie really scared me… Nightmare on Elm Street made me not made me not want to sleep.

If you could ask your pet three questions what would they be? 1. Why do you get so snappy? 2. Are you happy? 3. How can we help with your separation anxiety?

Who’s your celebrity crush? Right now I’m stuck on the Tom’s – Holland and Hiddleston. Hiddleston has been my love for a very long time (the interview for nerd HQ is my all time favourite) and Holland is a new one for me (yeah he’s a little younger but lets move past that) he’s so adorable and like a cute little puppy.

Where would you travel? I’d love to see Australia and go cage diving with great white sharks. I’d also love to travel to every state in America and end it in Florida (Disney any one?)

If you could shop anywhere for free? I’m going to be really boring on this one. Either ASDA or Tesco… clothes, food and homeware all in one shop. My idea of heaven.

What did you want to be as a child? I would have loved to be a doctor. I think I’ve always wanted to help people so teacher was also on the list.

What’s your favourite day of the week? I work weekends so I don’t like Fridays, Saturday or Sundays. So I’d say probably Tuesday. I don’t have work on a Tuesday or Wednesday so I can chill out on Tuesday then drink on a Tuesday night then spend Wednesday trying not to die from a hangover!

Who would play you in a movie? I don’t have anyone in mind! They’d have to be a little chubby, slightly sarcastic and always down for a laugh!

What food couldn’t you bear to eat? Anything that’s alive! I watch I’m A Celeb and I just don’t know how they manage it. Bergh. Also cat or dog food. I see what my dog eats and ergh nope!

What is your pet peeve? Small noises. Oh God, small noises annoy me. Things like chewing, humming, clicking, whistling. I can’t stand small noises and I get really irritated and end up shouting at people. I’m annoying myself with the key board clacking….

Cats or dogs? Woah… That’s a hard one. I’ll have to say cats. I love love love dogs but there is something about cats that I just adore. They’re sassy, funny and love to hate you and I really enjoy when there are cats around.

Okay so there we go! I hope these random questions and answers gave you a little insight into my strange mind! Let me know what your answers would be – I’d love to get to know you all a little bit better!

Until next time,

Elysia x
