TAG: Get To Know Me Better

Ok, so I was tagged by fellow-blogger Katie Elisabeth in her latest You Tube Video so I decided to do it here on my blog. If you are into YT vids,  then I def recommend checking her out as she does great reviews, make up looks and hauls and she has also recently started her Vlog Channel, which I am addicted to!! So the tag - as you may well guess! - is for you to get to know me a bit better. There are 21 questions, so here goes!

1.     Are you named after anyone?
Nope! I’m a complete original! As far as I know my oldest sister loved the name and my mother went with it. Thanks Susan!!

2. When was the last time you cried?
Unfortunately, the last time I cried was about 2 weeks ago and it was at the funeral of a friend. I actually remember feeling so unbelievably guilty for crying, as I can only imagine what the actual family were going through. Things like this always put things into major perspective for me and I really do try to appreciate everything and everyone I have in my own life. I haven’t cried since because of it and once something like that happens it will rarely leave my mind within days or even weeks, it stays with me. Not in a horrible way but it focuses me on life. I’m the type of person who thinks a lot, in fact I would say I’m an over thinker, but I defiantly take the time to process things in my head and take a look at my own life. I think many people talk about and think far too much about what they don’t have, rather than what they already have in their lives. It’s just a shame that something so freak and horrific like this has to happen, for the human race to sit up and take notice. So that’s the last time I cried :(

3. Do you have kids?

I certainly do!! Well, one, which is enough for now!! His name is Cathal and he is 5 since December. He started school this year....well, last year..... Oh you know what I mean, 2010!! That freaked me out completely because I realised that he was actually a developing HUMAN BEING!!! Well obviously I knew he was real but just the fact that I am responsible for how this little fellow grows up is a big responsibility! It’s cool now though. I get to see him learn how to read and write, make new friends and develop his personality for the rest of his life! Some of the stuff he comes out with is gas – a lot of it from his 2 Grandads’! He’s like an old man himself at heart which is adorable. He’s quite a boy’s boy, but he definitely knows when he needs his Mom! He’s a little legend!! Here are some pics:
 
 



4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I know everyone says yes to this question but if I’m being 100% honest I’m not sure if I would!!! HA!! At least I can laugh about it!! Now I’m not saying I’m a horrible person and there wouldn't be a hope in hell I’d even say hello to myself on the street!!! But, it’s just that sometimes I’m aware that I may come off as a bit stand-off-ish. It’s not as though I’m protecting myself from being hurt – it’s more so I don’t want to let the wrong type of person be a part of my life, so I’m just wary of people I guess. I suppose it’s a trust thing. I think it needs to be earned. I’m not just going to be friends with you just because you’re being nice to me. I’ll be polite but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I need you to be my friend forever!! I’m being really critical here and.....ironically... over-thinking this, but I do know I can be a bit guarded. But if you are my friend it’s a completely different story. If you’ve a feeling I like you, then you’re probably right because if I didn’t like you, you’d know it!! ;)

 

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Ah.......................................NO! Next question!

6. Will you ever bungee-jump?
YES! If I am ever in a location that it would be possible then defiantly! I’ve been skydiving in Prague and it was one of the most surreal and amazing things I have ever done in my life, after giving birth and falling in love!!....awh!
 

7. What's your favourite cereal?
Am, I like Special K, Start, Crunchy Nut.... that kinda thing!

8. What's the first thing you notice about people?
Hair, teeth, eyes, in that order, for both male and female!! And babies... apart from the teeth..and actually eyes first!!

9. What is your eye color?
Mostly Blue!! Kinda amber around my pupils with a brown dot in my right eye! Let me show you!


10. Scary movie or happy endings?
I go through phases. I used to love scary ones but I freak myself out too much afterwards by thinking I’m seeing people in glass reflections, mirrors, shadows etc! Happy endings...meh! Ya they’re nice. I actually think I prefer sad endings... it makes you remember a film.

11. Favorite smells?
Berry smells,. I love milk and honey hand soaps, coconut-ey sunscreen, vanilla, baby smells (I know what you’re thinking...stop it!) and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy and David Beckham-Intimately...on James obv! And his Hugo Boss one whatever it is!!

12. Summer or winter?
Winter

13. Computer or television?
Computer. It’s more a less my life. I work on it, play on it, save memories and blog on it. And watch television programmes on it!



14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home?
 That would be New York. I've been to New York, Prague, Brittany-France, Tenerife, Paris and London

15. Do you have any special talents?

I’m pretty good at twisting things.... as in word or opinions. Like if someone has an opinion and mine is the opposite I’m pretty good and being able to make the other person understand/change to my opinion. Not that I do it on purpose, but I’m usually quite good with words.


16. Where were you born?

Cork (bai!!!)


17. What are your hobbies?

Blogging, reading, watching films, trying different foods (when I can, which is rare because of my dam boyfriend being a ridiculous eater!) and socialising with friends and family. I love being on my own though – listening to music or going for a walk or whatever.


18. Do you have any pets?

No L *Sob. I desperately want a black pug though!!


19. Favourite movie?

Oh god this is hard. Ok, there is no way I can pick one, top of my list are, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Enough, Taken, Gran Torino, Don’t Say A Word.


20. Do you have any siblings?

Yes, I have 4 sisters, 2 older and 2 younger.


21. What do you wanna be when you grow up?

Hmmm... I’m still not completely sure. I like what I’m doing in college at the moment which is Social Studies. Maybe something like a social worker? I’d like that because I get to deal with people and it involves office-ey things like paperwork and computer work. I always imagined myself with a job that I had my own desk! Just not too sure where the desk is situated yet!



BAM!! That's it! Sorry if it was too long. I love doing things like these! Hell I even love filling out questionnaires for randomers!! Thank you so much for reading this. I tag the following:
