'Get To Know Me' Tag

I’ve seen this tag float around the interwebz for ages and I’m sure there are a few versions of it too. I hope to have new readers as well as my loyal readers read my blog, but even if you’re new or old to my blog, these questions will hopefully give you a little more info on me! I also did a ’20 Facts About Me’ post here if you want to read some random facts about me! I felt like I was doing one of those quizzes/surveys on MySpace that I was totally addicted too (My 16 year old self had way too much time on her hands!) so I feel like I should be adding a hXc song lyric for the title.

1. Are you named after anyone? Not that I’m aware of! I was christened Katherine, so all my documents are under Katherine but my parents also liked Katie. They’ve always said I can use Katherine for more formal situations but I highly doubt I will!

2. When was the last time you cried? The other day actually. I hardly cry anymore but I do go through periods when I cry a lot *emo alert*. It was one of those days when everything got a bit too much. Hey we all have them right?

3. Do you have kids? No! I know of plenty of people who went to my high school who all have kids but I have no desire of having any now when I openly admit to still feeling like a child myself!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yes. I feel so smug saying that but I like to be the nicest possible person I can be. I like to treat people how I would want to be treated so I think I’m easy to get along with.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Not really. I only use sarcasm in situations where it’s obvious to use sarcasm as a reply. I dislike overly sarcastic people because I think it’s pretty lame when it’s over-used.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? I hope to! My brother did a bungee-jump when he was in Spain a few years ago and I’ve always been jealous. I hate rollercoasters yet I’d happily do a bungee-jump. I realise the rationality is all over the place!

7. What's your favourite cereal? I don’t often eat cereal but I love Cinnamon Grahams (re-named to Curiously Cinnamon) and also the strawberry ones too. I love Cookie Crisp, Sugar Puffs, Rice Krispies (the normal ones and the chocolate ones too!) and bog standard cornflakes.

8. What's the first thing you notice about people? From a distance – dress sense and close up, eyes. Eyes are important because eye contact is vital and I always notice a person’s dress sense too. I don’t really check out a girl’s dress sense but I look for a good dress sense in a guy!

9. What is your eye colour? Blue and green. They’re a mixture; I don’t think they’re overly blue or overly green.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? Happy endings! C’mon I’m a girl! I do love a good horror film but I’d rarely go to see one at the cinema. I’m much more likely to see a chick flick that I know will most likely have a lovely ending.

11. Favourite smells? Fresh bread, just out of the oven cakes and buns and YSL Rive Gauche. Rive Gauche is my mum’s most worn perfume and it reminds me when I used to sit on my parent’s bed when I was younger whilst she was doing her makeup to go out.

12. Summer or winter? Mixture of the two. So basically spring even though it’s not an option! I love summer for the sunny, warm days but I also love winter for Christmas and cups of tea in front of the fire.

13. Computer or television? If I’d have to pick between keeping my laptop or TV then it’d have to be my laptop. I live for the internet, I couldn’t function without blogging or online shopping and I love messing about with Photoshop too.

14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home? I’ve never been abroad before! I know, crazyyyyy. So the furthest is probably London which is a good 4 hour car drive from Leeds.

15. Do you have any special talents? Not interesting ones! I’d love to say I could juggle/walk on stilts/speak a different language but I can’t! The only decent thing is that like every Tom Dick and Harry, I’m a dab hand at Photoshop and the like. Well I think I am! I’m definitely not as good as I used to be though.

16. Where were you born? At St James hospital in Leeds. To be precise, in some theatre because I was born via c-section. I’d love to say my mum was ‘too posh to push’ but in reality there were complications.

17. What are your hobbies? Blogging, reading and generally surfing the interwebz. I also like to think I’m a ‘mini stylist’ from time to time and create outfits from my overly-filled wardrobes when I’m insanely bored.

18. Do you have any pets? No! I have had 5 hamsters since I was 15, but they only live for around 2 years (3 if you’re Jake!) and I can’t take anymore heartbreak after finding my fluffy ball of fun, well, not so fluffy.

19. Favourite movie? I have a few! The entire Harry Potter series (picking a favourite is like picking a favourite child – if I had one – YOU JUST CAN’T), The InBetweeners and any cool 80/90s feel good movie, like Look Who’s Talking, Baby Boom, you get the drift.

20. Do you have any siblings? I’m lucky enough to have a twin brother! Hence the complications mentioned in question 16. He’s two minutes older than me, roughly two inches taller than me and actually a lot cooler than me.

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? I’m technically ‘grown up’, although I hate to admit it. After I graduate from uni I hope to be a journalist, although I’ve gone from wanting to be a vet to a graphic designer.

P.S - No one actually tagged me but I tag anyone who wants to do it! Have fun with it! :)
