10 Things You Mightn't Know About Me

I have been blogging for over 2 and a half years but there is still a some things that you may not know about me and I thought I would share them with you. I love reading these posts as you get to know the person behind the blog a little better.

I am ambidextrous
For a while when I was younger, I used to be able to write with both hands but then the leftie life chose me, I still do a lot with my right hand as I find it really hard to use a left-handed scissors. I use both hands to chop stuff and peel vegetables. I play a right-handed guitar and ukulele.

I have had 3 hair colours
I haven't dyed my hair before so you may be a little confused about how that was possible. Well I was born with jet black hair, around 2 years old I was blond and when I was 4 my hair was brown and it has stayed like that for the last 14 years.

I am a middle child
Yes, I am the forgotten one of the family and I think that's the reason why I am so talkative and outgoing as if I wasn't I'd be forgotten about. I have an older brother who is 359 days older than me, so we are Irish twins and my younger brother is 4 years younger than me.

I have many failed hobbies
Since I was 4, I have been involved in so many different things but the majority of them failed. I did ballet, gaelic football, camogie, trad music, swimming, art, computers, scouts, speech and drama, youth theatre, classical piano lessons, guitar lessons and kickboxing. Some of these I still do but the rest I haven't done in years.

I can read upside down
Sounds slightly mad but I can read well enough upside. I don't know if it is a dyslexic thing or is it just a random trait.

I want to get a pug
Since the age of 10 I've wanted a pug. My mam isn't impressed with the idea as she thinks they are ugly but I hope to get one when I have my own place.

I want to live in London, France and America
I have been to London twice and France 5 times and I want to go back to live in both places for maybe a year or two. I also would love to go to America for a year too, I'm not to sure where though maybe somewhere not too hot.

I was/am huge The Black Eyed Peas fan
From the age of 7/8 I loved The Black Eyed Peas. I still do and have some of their best tunes on my current playlist. My brother has the albums from Elepunk up to The Beginning. My favourite song still is Where is the Love? because as I am getting older and noticing what goes on in this world I question where the love is sometimes. I had planned at the age of 9 that when I was old enough I would go see them in Oxegen, if you are Irish you may remember this notorious festival in Punchestown Racecourse in Kildare that was around from 2001-2011 and then stopped due to 'no funding'.

I sang for JK Rowling!
I think I may have mentioned this before but not in too much detail. Yes I sang for JK Rowling with my school choir on Christmas Eve 2015. It was an amazing experience and I didn't even know it was her until a few weeks after when someone finally coped it. I think I was too focused on the words on the sheet to actually recognise her.

I have never done an all nighter
I value my sleep a little too much to ever do an all nighter. I think the closest I ever got was to 5am but I was so tired I decided to go to bed. Even when I was younger I didn't bother trying to do an all nighter at sleepovers as I knew I wouldn't last.

I hope you have learned a little more about me.

Thanks for being awesome,
