10 Things You Probably Don’t Know
We’ve been friends now for a few months, so I thought it was high time I tell you a little more about myself. Here are 10 things that you probably don’t know about me:
1. I spent six years living in America
My family moved out to Northern California in 2009, when I was thirteen years old. I lived there until I was nineteen, when I moved back to England. Although I loved my time living there, and I made some of the best friends I’ve ever had (shoutout to the Nerd Squad ❤️), America never really felt like home, and I missed the beautiful English rain.
2. I don’t drink alcohol
Yep, no drinks for me! I’ve never really seen the appeal of getting drunk, and part of me living in America during my teen years meant that I missed the good old British tradition of drunken teen house parties. That, coupled with my stomach’s seemingly deep hatred of alcohol, means that I’ll be having water?
3. I can’t eat dairy
I still get very sad about this, but yes, I am part of the lactose intolerance club. This is something that has only developed in the last five years or so, which means that I can still remember the taste of cheese. And no, I am not one of those lactose intolerants that can still eat dairy and just suffer through the consequences…if I eat anything that contains cheese, I’ll end up in bed for a couple of days.
4. Chocolate is one of my favourite things in the world
Ironic, huh? I looooove chocolate, and it’s something that I eat on almost a daily basis. However, since becoming lactose intolerant, I’m now a dark chocolate lover. But god do I miss Cadbury’s.
5. I’m a massive Marvel fan
I was introduced to Marvel at a really difficult time in my life, and I’ve loved it ever since. My favourite character is Captain America, by far. Last December I got to go to the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in London and it was so amazing. I may or may not have actually cried when I saw Captain America’s actual bike from Avengers: Age of Ultron & the actual costume Chris Evans wore in the film (see #10). Marvel is something that means so much to me, but that I find it really difficult to explain.
6. I will pick a Disney film over almost anything
Oh yeah, you heard that right. I absolutely love Disney films, especially the classics. I could watch Aladdin or The Sword in the Stone any day. I’ll never turn down Disney.
7. I’m a true dog person
I adore dogs with just about every fibre of my being. I grew up with dogs, and it was one of the best things in the world. Since moving back to England, it’s been really bloody difficult to adjust to not having a little buddy. If you ever want to make me smile, send me a cute dog video ?
8. I’ve known Nathan since I was about three years old
Nathan and I met because our parents were friends when we were young. We lost touch after his family moved away and we moved to the States, but we ended up getting back in touch over Facebook and becoming best friends. Fast forward a few years, and here we are. We’re true childhood sweethearts ❤️
9. I’ve always wanted to live in Paris
Yes, I know how cliché this is, but I’ve loved Paris ever since I first visited it as a child. I love the idea of living in Paris for a few years to write, like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The movie Midnight in Paris is basically my dream life!
10. I cry…a lot…at everything.
Yep. I’m a crier. I cry at literally everything. Disney movies (I’m looking at you, Tangled), cute dog videos, any kind of emotional story arc in a TV show, even a good emosh tweet. I’m not even ashamed.
Hopefully you feel like you know me a bit more now, but I would love to hear if there’s anything else you’d like to know! Leave me a comment with a question ??
