#70 - Blog award

Haven't posted properly since my birthday; through those few weeks I've been pretty unwell and literally suffocating under all the uni work I have to do - I have an important piece in pretty much every week until Christmas, so it's all systems go!
Not to mention I went to see Paramore on Wednesday, and Deftones on Sunday. Both gigs were amazing, but Deftones was unbelievable for me - they've been my favourite band for goodness knows how many years, and I've finally seen them live. I am currently suffering from several bruises on my legs and arms, as well as as bruised cheekbone, but it was definitely worth it! They sound exactly the same live as they do on a cd.

I was given this blog award by Alex at Life After 20 - I finally met her in person last Saturday at the vintage fair, and she's even lovlier in person, so go check her out :)

Here's my attempt at the answers:

1. Why do your blog?
I like to think I have a way with words, and even if nobody reads it, it always makes me feel better posting things up on here. I've "met" some lovely people through this and it's great to hear other people's opinions on things and to know that your voice does count!

2. Name your 3 best memories:
This took me a while to narrow it down!
1. When I met Jack; as cheesy as it sounds, he turned my life around, made me a more positive person, and is always there for me. He really makes me happy, even if we're just sitting with a movie on, pulling stupid faces at each other; I love him ^_^

2. Maybe four months after we had to get rid of our kitten, Tarmac, I come home from work to find an unbelievably happy dog sat in the kitchen. Turns out he had been abandoned and my dad found him in the Leeds-Liverpool canal and fished him out. He hadn't eaten properly for weeks, and after the month appeal nobody claimed him, so we got to keep him. We named him Hippy and he's the happiest dog I've ever known; always welcomes me home like I've been away forever!

3. When I found out I got a second chance at university. I had been messed about by my first choice, and thought I'd have to go to college or get a full-time job and miss out. But I rang up Edge Hill by chance and they offered me a place on the course upfront. I appreciate being given a second chance and I know it happened for a reason so I'm trying my best not to mess up!

3. Five best fictional books you have read.
1. Servants of Twilight, Dean Koontz
2. Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk
3. One Big Damn Puzzler, John Harding

4. 5 Best movies ever made.
1. Pulp Fiction
2. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
3. Shawshank Redemption
4. Hocus Pocus
5. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

5. Name 5 things you cant live without.
1. Family/friends
2. Good food, like my mum's roast dinners!
3. The photos I have, jam packed full of memories
4. My bed
5. Positive people

6. If you could change your name what would you change it to.
I really like my name, and think I suit it. People have said I look like a Rebecca or Claire though.

7. Tell us a unique fact about yourself.
I can only eat M&M's and Skittles in two's of the same colour

8. What do you love most about yourself?
That I don't know what's just around the corner but I don't mind that. And that I am finally comfortable in my own skin

9. If you had a freaky Friday experience who would you change places with?
As "original" as it may seem, I'd like to trade with Anne Hathaway or Emily Blunt - two people I look up to; they're both hugely successful, beautiful intelligent women who go against the grain, and I admire them for doing so and sticking to their guns

10. Whats the best thing about being a women?
Being able to look pretty; women have much more freedom when it comes to fashion, make up, etc. And not being told off for wanting to be career-forward
