50 Fact About Me

So I'm back!
I really wanted to start blogging again because I really enjoy this, but college really got in the way for me but now that's all finished! exams are done, I've gotten into University, so I can finally try and get into what I've wanted to do for years. 

I thought a good way to start would be with a '50 facts about me', I love reading these because I'm a bit nosey and I always feel like you really get to know someone online with this, so here it goes. 

1. My name is Simone

2. I'm 19 and my Birthday is 08/04/1994

3. I live in the North East of England and I have done for 10 years.

4. I don't have much of a strong accent, and I can never tell people where my accent is from. When I'm in the South I'm told I sound like a northerner, and in the North I'm often told I sound like a southerner, no-one has ever placed it to somewhere. 

5. I lived in Saudi Arabia for 9 years, I grew up there and only came home in the Summer and we started coming home for Christmas when I was about 5. 

6. I hold a Dutch passport, because my Mother is Dutch and it was quicker for me to get a Dutch passport than an English one when I was born, although I was born in the UK. We needed my passport fast as we had to go back to Saudi quite soon after I was born.

7. I have a brother who is two years younger than I am. We get a long most of the time, and he's petty cool. 

8. I didn't do A levels, but instead did an HEFC (Higher Education Foundation Course) and I loved every minute of it, no matter how much I complained about it I loved it, even when it was really hard and I wanted to quit. 

9. I always thought I'd do my degree in History, but after studying it at a higher level, I've instead chosen Psychology and as much as I love History, I'm really happy with my decision. 

10. I'm Dyspraxic 

11. When I decided to do my degree in Psychology over History, it was because of the career prospects. I would really love to be an Educational Psychologist or a Clinical Psychologist with children and adolescents. I hope to have a job where I help people on a daily basis. 

12. For my HEFC course, I took History, Psychology and Sociology, and I loved all of the subjects but wish I could have taken more than 3 subjects. 

13. I love Mexican and Japanese food, albeit our British versions of these.

14. Cooking is one of my favourite things to do, I also love baking but I hate tidying up!

15. My favourite holiday destinations are Dubai and Orlando, Florida. I want to visit so many places in the world, but I'd love to go back to these two.

16. Long-haul flights are the best, I'd rather fly for 8+ hours than 3/4 hours.

17. I'd only drink American style iced tea if I could, I really love the Dunkin Donuts one. 

18. Macaroni and Cheese is my 'speciality' recipe and my boyfriend's favourite meal. 

19. Brownies are a close second, and my brothers favourite thing I cook. 

20. I'm really fussy about my bed, my covers have to be certain ones or I don't like the way they feel against my skin, and I have to shake any little crumbs off the sheet every night, it drives my boyfriend mad but he appears to love me in spite of this. 

21. I recently got in touch with my childhood best friend, we stopped talking when we were 15 after being best friends for 11 years (like 15 years old do!) and we got back in touch this year and honestly, it feels like a missing piece has been returned to me. 

22. I love dogs far too much, I have an English Cocker Spaniel named Caramel, she's ginger and so lovely. 

23. My Mum trains puppies for Guide Dogs, we've trained 3 puppies from scratch and boarded 13 more. I remember every single one of them and I can't wait to have my own labrador one day.

24. My brother and I once worked out that I have been on a minimum of 200 flights in my lifetime. 

25. I wore almost exclusively black for about 2 years, and now I'm starting to inject colour into my wardrobe again.

26. I was bullied until I felt I could not longer attend school, this lead me down a path of anxiety and depression and effected my GCSE's (I only sat 4 exams) and now, 4 years later I think I'm finally happy, and over what happened. 

27. I kill plants. I try not too, but I just fail at looking after them! I'm currently trying to care for my 5th basil plant, and he's still alive! my brother is helping me with this one though, as I appear to be incapable of doing it myself.

28. I find lumps in air, and have Dyspraxic moments that sometimes result in me injuring myself by falling over seemingly nothing, or occasionally my own feet. Some what recently I fell down my drive and sprained my ankle, and 7 weeks ago, I fell over and broke my foot! 

29. I'm petrified of snakes. I can't look at pictures of them, or videos of them and if people talk about them for too long I have to take my feet of the floor. I've not always been so scared of them, and I can't remember when it actually started! 

30. I'm left-handed. 

31. I've loved London every time that I've been, but I don't think I could ever move down south.

32. Making lists makes me happy, shopping lists, lists of things I want to do, places I want to visit, I have all of them, and I keep them up to date. It irritates my Mum because I can't even go to town without a list of where I'd like to go.

33. My short term memory is awful, but my long term memory is quite astounding, even to me. I could tell you in detail about a day that I had years ago, but cannot remember if I've eaten breakfast or not. I like to think of it as a sign of genius, but really it's just irritating. 

34. In the house, when it's just me and my Dad, we listen to 'Sky Radio' online, a dutch radio station that doesn't have adverts and plays a few dutch songs each hour. My Dad and I like to learn to lyrics to the dutch songs and sing them to my mum, while making up traffic and weather and pretending we're translating it.

35. I don't like avocado. I've tried, they're so trendy  and good for you, and you can call them alligator pears! but I just don't like them.

36. I consider courgettes to be a gift from the devil himself, they're vile and I don't understand how anyone can eat them.

37. I cannot grow my nails for the life of me, whenever I'm stressed I bite my nails, and as a naturally anxious person, the nails never make it. 

38. It took me 5 attempts to get my ears pierced. I finally have them done and have done for about 8 years, but I rarely wear earrings because I have metal allergies :(

39. I got my nose pierced when I was 15 and I loved it, but I let it close up because I was so lazy and my studs kept coming out or I had to take it out,  and I keep meaning to get it re-done, but I always forget. 

40. I don't have any tattoos, I'd like one and I love the way they look (My boyfriend has 6) but I can't decide on something that I'll love forever. 

41. Fantasy shopping is my favourite thing (much like list making!) and I like to waste time online adding all the products I want to my basket online and wishing I could click the 'buy' button.

42. My hair grows really slowly, and I want it really long, I think I've been saying '2 more inches and I'll be happy' for around 3 years.

43. I hate painting my nails. I love the way other people's painted nails look but when I do my own they look horrid! I still buy colours and try though.

44.  I'm blessed to have an extremely supportive and loving immediate family. They drive me up the wall sometimes but they love me and I love them. 

45. I'm never content or relaxed, once I've achieved something I'm onto the next thing before it's even fully finished, like I'm looking in depth at post graduate things now, before I've even started undergraduate! 

46. Trashy TV is my favourite. I love to watch serious, deep and profound documentaries (ooh look at me sounding all smart) and more 'serious' shows but give me some 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom (1,2 or 3), bit of the Kardashians and maybe some E! True Hollywood stories and I'm happy. 

47. I'm 5ft 8in tall. This tends to surprise people and my friends have often gone 'I didn't realise you were so tall!' and this baffles me...

48. I remember birthday's. It's like my thing, tell me your birthday 2/3 times and it's stuck in there. 

49. I'm useless at keeping things overall tidy. I like to organise little things meticulously but overall, my room is messy! My vanity is terribly messy and unorganised. 

50. When we have our own house, James and I would like 4 dogs, yes 4 dogs! A Labrador x Retriever, a Boxer, a Newfoundland and an Alaskan Malamute. I also want a dyson hoover to go with the dogs haha!

Well, that's 50 facts about me! I hope that you've enjoyed reading this post and maybe felt like you got to know me a bit. I always love reading these posts myself so hope that you enjoyed this too!
