What is something that is getting you down at the moment?
There’s a couple of situations in my life right now that are really bothering me. Like, really bothering me and I think about them everyday and the anger still hasn’t left. I’ve done everything I can to try and fix it but nothing works. I’m trying so hard to be positive with things just now and this is the only thing that niggles away at me. Hopefully time will fix it but who knows.
What is something that makes you happy?
Food. Obvs. Doesn’t food make everyone happy? It’s great. Something that makes me happy is when I have spent time with friends or family and I’m left feeling very optimistic about things. That always makes me happy and it’s been happening a bloody lot recently which makes me feel so good!
Name 3 guilty pleasures!
Teen Mom UK. I have absolutely no idea why I was so obsessed with it when it came out in the UK because I never watched the original ones. But they have confirmed a second season and I am so BUZZING.
Singing out loud with head phones in on the way to work. Okay, I only ever do this when I’m walking on the back road but it feels so good. Dreading the day I get caught though.
15 year old Justin Bieber’s album My World is honestly my biggest guilty please ever. I absolutely love it. FAVE FAVE FAVE. Do you know what? I don’t even know if it’s a guilty pleasure or just a pleasure.
What is something about yourself you’d like to improve on?
I can be quite paranoid at times and I’d love to not be as bad one day. I am constantly doubting myself and always worrying about things. I always think people think the worst of me which is not great for my self esteem. I am working on it though!
When was the last time you belly laughed?
Last night. I find myself properly hard laughing quite often when I’m with friends because they are just so funny and we manage to get ourselves into some strange situations. But I properly belly laughed last night with Michael when I never realised that my screensaver had started playing but the music for the TV show was still on and I thought that the changing screen of The Great Wall of China and then a Mediterranean beach were the opening scenes of The Handmaid’s Tale. Obviously it was a ‘had to be there’ moment but most of my life is to be honest.
What is your biggest insecurity/fear?
Losing everyone I love – whether that be by death (soz, morbid) or just by drifting. It gives me the absolute fear the thought of growing up and being lonely ya know.
Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down.
McFly – Love Is On The Radio. Without a doubt, 110%. I have music for every kind of mood but that is definitely my all time favourite that really lifts my spirits when I’m down. Honestly, put it on just now and I promise that you won’t be able to stop smiling.
Name 3 things you like about yourself
I can make people laugh (which I bloody love doing by the way. Even if I don’t mean to.) There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing someone’s face brighten up.
My hair isn’t too bad to be honest. It almost always plays ball and grows pretty quickly so that’s always a relief when it gets cut too short. It can also hold a curl for ages and I like it’s natural wave.
My music taste is AMAZING. I absolutely love when I haven’t listened to a certain playlist in ages and then when I do, each song is an absolute tune and I’m like ‘I made this. I am the creator of this mix of artists put together. I am genius.’
What is an achievement that has made you proud of yourself this year?
This year? Damn. Ehhhh… I actually haven’t really achieved much this year which is annoying. There’s little goals at work I set myself and I’m pleased when I meet them. In fact, there’s quite a lot at work that I have achieved that I’m proud of. I’ve managed to learn quite a lot and grow in such a short period of time.
Tell us your happiest memory.
Do ya know what? I have so many happy memories and can’t pick one so I think I’ll leave this one for another time and maybe give it a post of its own.
I wish I could do something in person to give the following 5 people happiness but I hope they find this tag as reflective as I did!
