I found this on Twitter and decided to turn it into a blog post because why not?
1. Who’s the last person you held hands with?
I think it was Jess. A couple of weekends ago we went ice-skating and neither of us were very good at it. Becca was, she was skating around the rink like no one’s business. I got a bit more confident my only issue was that the skates were hurting my feet. Poor Jess fell over a couple of times, even when she was holding my hand.
2. Are you outgoing or shy?
Shy but I can be outgoing around people I’m comfortable with. Generally with strangers though I tend to be quite shy.
3. Who are you looking forward to seeing?
I’m not really looking forward to seeing anyone at the moment I guess? I don’t have plans to meet up with anyone in the near future so yeah no one at the moment?
4. Are you easy to get along with?
I’m generally nice and polite to everyone I meet but I think a lot of people find me a bit annoying when I stop being shy. I’m quite awkward and don’t always have a filter on what I’m saying, or I’m the opposite and I don’t say an awful lot so I think people tend to dislike me. Not everyone of course, I get on well with most people I meet I’d say – it just depends on whether our personalities blend which I guess is true of everyone?
5. If you were drunk would the person you like take care of you?
If this is referring to the person I have a crush on I’m going to have to disappoint everyone and say I don’t have a crush at the moment. My friends take care of me to an extent. I got quite drunk once and my friends were looking after me at the bowling alley but afterwards I had to walk to the bus station and it wasn’t convenient for them to look after me anymore so they let me get on with it – which was a bit annoying considering they’d been babying me all night but okay.
My other friends, Jess, Hirst and Becca do take care of me even if they’re drunk too and I prefer them when I’m drunk because although they don’t let me do anything too stupid or crazy they don’t treat me like a little kid either. They have a good balance of fun and sensible and we always make sure we all get home safely. So yeah, I prefer drinking with them.
6. What kind of people are you attracted to?
I am quite shallow and tend to fall for looks before personality but I can fall for someone if they’re nice to me too. It’s quite bad actually, a guy that worked at the co-op gave me a discount on my chocolate once and I thought about him for the rest of the day. I accidentally bumped into someone in London and as I opened my mouth to apologise they smiled at me and went “So sorry, Darling!” Usually I hate when strangers give me pet names but this was quite sweet. I’ve kind of lost the point a bit here…
I think it’s a mixture of both, I can be attracted to looks or I can be attracted by personality. Personality is generally better because although someone might be good-looking they might actually be an asshole. A great example is a guy I went to college with – very good-looking. Also a massive dick.
7. Do you think you’ll be in a relationship two months from now?
Uh, no. I don’t really speak to many boys, the only ones I’m friends with are in relationships, and I’m not really interested in any of the girls I know. So I highly doubt it.
8. Who’s on your mind?
My brother but only because I’m a bit nervous I’m gonna bump into him soon. I won’t even get into it at the moment!
9. Does talking about sex make you uncomfortable?
No, I don’t really see the big deal. I have a laugh about it but uncomfortable isn’t the word I’d use.
10. Who was the last person you had a deep conversation with?
Um I’m not sure, it depends on what you define as deep. I don’t think I have a ton of deep conversations with people but if I had to guess it was probably Becca.
11. What does the most recent text you sent say?
‘Well hopefully he’ll get arrested then xxx’ – text sent to my Mom. I’m not gonna add context to that haha!
12. What are your 5 favourite songs right now?
So glad I’m allowed to pick five, I could never narrow it down to just one!
BTS (Jin) – Epiphany
BTS – Idol
miss A – Breathe
CLC – Me
Weki Meki – Picky Picky
To be honest there would probably be more BTS songs in there because I saw them live not that long ago and can’t stop listening to their songs but I thought I’d best put a bit more variety.
13. Do you like it when people play with your hair?
I don’t really know how to answer because my instincts say yes I love that but the other part of me doesn’t really like it. I hate people like plaiting my hair or brushing it or generally doing anything with it. So I’m not really sure.
14. Do you believe in luck and miracles?
Yes, I’m a massive believer in God and I have had times where I’m certain he’s sending me a sign or he’s performed a miracle for me – I would sound crazy if I started describing them but I think you need to look out for the smaller things or you won’t notice them. Like, I don’t believe that God, luck or miracles could fix all my problems but He has done things for me before that I feel pretty certain of.
15. What good thing happened this summer?
We’ve actually only just entered summer so nothing yet although I have a few things to look forward to. I can’t narrow it down to one thing but here are some good things that happened last summer – I went clubbing with my friends for the first time, me and Becca went to Pride in London, I went to Paris to see 24K, I went to Edinburgh with my Mom and brother’s ex-girlfriend, and I had a lot of fun planning our trip to Asia with Becca and Jess.
16. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
To be honest I can’t remember who the last person I kissed was but probably not.
17. Do you think there is life on other planets?
Yes. If you don’t believe there’s life anywhere other than Earth then that must be a sad existence. There must be something out there, even if it’s not the way we portray it to be in films and media. But there has to be something out there, I refuse to believe there’s nothing out there.
18. Do you still talk to your first crush?
No, but I do occasionally talk to his girlfriend.
19. Do you like bubble baths?
I love the idea of them but my issue is that baths take so long to run and I get impatient and end up with too little water or I end up with too much and suddenly I’ve caused a flood. Also the water either goes freezing cold or for some reason I end up overheating and I have to get out before I’ve really had time to relax. If it could be a good temperature and good height always then yes, I’d love bubble baths.
20. Do you like your neighbours?
Yes but I don’t really talk to them. We’ve had the same ones since I was a kid and my parents get on well with them but I’ve never really had much to do with them. We get on alright, they take in parcels for me and they’re decent people so I think we lucked out really.
21. What are your bad habits?
I always assume other people are talking and laughing about me behind my back – especially at work. I dig my fingernails or like sharp things into the tops of my fingers, I do really need to stop because it’s made them a bit gross. Last year I started a new thing where I get very paranoid and I analyse every message any one of my friends sends me and I read way too much into them. For example if someone just sends me ‘okay fine’ with no smiley face I assume they’re mad at me even though they’re just saying something’s fine. I really need to snap out of that.
Aha, I shouldn’t have got started on my bad habits. I leave everything to the last minute, I bother people with my problems and I’m way too unhealthy. I’ll just end this here or we’ll be here all day.
22. Where would you like to travel?
I ticked off Japan which was always top of my list so I guess the answer is anywhere and everywhere. The world is so big and I wanna see all of it.
23. Do you have trust issues?
Not sure how to answer that one ‘cos to an extent yes. But I’m also extremely open, like way more open than I should be really. I could meet a stranger and I would start spilling my entire life story with no questions asked – that’s probably why I started a blog in fact, because I just can’t keep anything to myself. Obviously if someone tells me something that they want to keep private I have no issue keeping that to myself, but in relation to my own life I just blab like no one’s business. But I do think my paranoia could be due to trust issues. I’m not sure.
24. Favourite part of your daily routine?
Going to bed. No doubt about it.
25. What part of your body are you must uncomfortable with?
Oh man, where do I start? The first thing that springs to mind is my size because I’m a size 20 but is that really a body part? I could say my stomach but if that magically shrunk I’d still have big thighs and arms so that’d be pointless.
I’m uncomfortable with my eyes which kind of sucks ‘cos I always really liked them as a kid. However in Secondary School I started wearing contact lenses and people kept asking me what was wrong with my eyes. I remember one girl also once told me I had dog eyes. So now I really dislike them.
I also hate my feet. My ex best friend cracked a joke when we went swimming and told me it looked like I had six toes on each foot. My feet are quite wide and I hate going shoe shopping because sometimes even the ‘wide fit’ shoes don’t fit me and honestly just writing this makes me wanna cry ‘cos it’s so embarrassing. My brother also regularly refers to me as ‘platypus feet’ which doesn’t help.
26. What do you do when you wake up?
This is extremely lame but at the moment I’ve been waking up fifteen minutes early recently to play BTS World. I have a good system going. The app only came out last week so I have a feeling I’ll be obsessed with that for a few weeks. On an average morning though I do tend to go straight onto my phone for a minimum of ten minutes, mostly scrolling mindlessly through social media.
27. Do you wish your skin was lighter or darker?
Neither, the hell kind of question is this?
28. Who are you most comfortable around?
Lame but my Mom. She knows too much for there to be any awkwardness and I’m always myself around my Mom.
29. Have any of your ex’s told you they regret breaking up?
No but to be fair my longest relationship lasted five days so um… There’s not really much emotional baggage I guess.
30. Do you ever want to get married?
I don’t think so, that’s quite a commitment to make to another person and I just feel like I wouldn’t want that.
31. Is your hair long enough for a ponytail?
Yep but I prefer wearing it down ‘cos I think I look like a man when it’s tied up. If I’m chilling at home and I wanna keep my hair out of the way I usually opt for an old lady bun as opposed to a ponytail. I couldn’t cut my hair short, I’d just look like my Dad and I need my long hair.
So there we go, those are my answers to ‘Hella Cute Questions’. Hope you enjoyed!
