35 facts about me

I love watching/reading these kind of posts so I thought I'd do one:-))
1- Our bathroom is massive for some reason and is almost the same size as my bedroom (which is also pretty big) and the toilet and sink are probably 5 metres apart
2- I have a tortoise called Andy and we don't know how old he is but we say he's in his 30s for some reason

3- I don't like salad because I hate eating the leaves, I'm not sure why I just can't seem to eat them
4- I'm pescetarian (I eat fish but not meat) and I hate it when people try to point out all the reasons not to be... leave me alone:-((
5- I have over 55,000 followers on tumblr
6- I'm left handed and right footed
7- I don't like dairy milk/ normal milk chocolate. I like most chocolate related things e.g. rocky roads, chocolates with fillings etc but I don't like chocolate cake or bars of plain dairy milk for some reason!
8- I like to bargain hunt (not the tv show haha.. actually not gonna lie it's pretty good) and most of my clothes were really cheap.. I've been known to have whole outfits costing £10
9- I'd consider myself very opinionated and I'm a feminist and idk just quite opinionated in general
10- My favourite musicians/bands right now are Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Bombay Bicycle Club, Kings Of Leon, Lily Allen, Bon Iver and lots of people:-))
11- I like most dogs but I am definitely more of a cat person (though all of my friends in my immediate friends group own and prefer dogs)
12- Alcohol affects me a lot, perhaps it's just a placebo effect or I use it as an excuse afterwards to justify acting strangely.. I'm not sure!
13- I love baths and sometimes they're my favourite part of the day which is sad
14- I really like baking and I prefer baking to eating what I've made

15- My dad and I go to the gym every Saturday morning then out for coffee, but I'm starting a job this Saturday so that will stop which is a bit sad :-(!
16- I have an older brother and we don't get on very well but sometimes he can be really sweet
17- The worst day of my life was a few days after I'd had my tonsils out and a combination of morphine and the anasthetix made me really, really sick. I couldn't sleep, eat, drink, read, watch tv or anything because I felt so ill and focussing on anything seemed to make it worse! I spent the day lying on the sofa and having baths and I was sick 8 times and I honestly wanted to die!
18- One of my best friends is Beth and she moved away at the end of year 6 but me, her and Mollie are all still bffs (cool year 6 language)

19- I collaged one of my walls then we rearranged my furniture and the best part of the collage is covered
20- We were put into teaching groups in year 10 and I didn't know anyone and was so bad at talking to people that I made hardly any friends! Luckily the ones I did make were fab so most of the time it was fine anyway:-)) And it's taught me to be more confident now!
21- I'm actually really enjoying sixth form though the workload is hard sometimes. I take psychology, biology, English lit and modern history
22- I do drama out of school but I'm not very good at acting hence my B in gcse drama!
23- I really want a pet rabbit because they are so soft and fluffy (I'm like Lennie in Of Mice and Men)
24- I love reading so much and if I like a book I'll read it constantly aka taking it into the bathroom with me, reading it at the table etc.
25- When the final Harry potter film came out I went with my friends Mollie and Holly and we dressed up
26- Out of my immediate group of 'best friends' of 7, there are Mollie, Mollie, Molly and Holly.. why do so many of them have the same name omg
only one friend here is called mollie! anyway here are some photos of my friends: morwenna, mollie, laure (sticking her tongue out and me

prom! one of my favourite photoss: mollie, molly, holly, megan, lauren and me :-)

clockwise from top left: lauren (sporting some facial hair thanks to the wind), me, molly, morwenna, megan and holly :-)
26- I have a bad sense of direction e.g. coming out of a shop and going the wrong way but I have an amazing knowledge of buses and where they're going/which way etc.
27- I'm hoping to take a gap year and travel round South East Asia with a group of friends. If this for some reason doesn't happen I will be absolutely devastated and make my parents come with me instead
28- I've never had a boyfriend but neither have most of my friends.. ah the perks of going to a girl's school
29- When I speak (usually if I'm speaking quickly) I sometimes get my words wrong, but I mix up the starts of words. Like if I was going to say 'the tree is green' it would come out as 'the gree is treen' idek haha it's so weird
30- Gilmore Girls is one of my favourite tv shows and it needs more recognition bc I love it
31- I love love love taking photos and I'm not even sure why, I just love it! Cheeky self promotion of my flickr:
photo I've taken for a school photography competition. My life is wild!!
32- My mum was born in Canada and has dual citizenship, meaning that technically I'm 1/4 Canadian
33- I have no idea what I want to do with my life but possibly: journalism, clinical psychology, nurse, something with law,work in the police of food photographer! Very mixed and probably not very realistic.. oops:-(
34- I love being on holiday and I hope that soon I go with my friends because that would be beyond amazing!!
Rhodes with mollie this summer, one of the best weeks of my life aw
35- I love peter pan collars. If something has a peter pan collar I instantly want it. That's probably so weird but if all my blouses and dresses had peter pan collars I would be very happy!
Sorry this was long and probably boring! I could have gone on to 50 but I didn't want anyone dying of boredom because of my post! Hopefully you've all survived and now know a little bit more about me. Sorry for a lack of interesting posts,
Laura x
