I'm starting to think I'm a little too self obsessed, or maybe I have some kind of writers block, because I really feel like answering some questions, and I've found the perfect tag to do so. Have you guys seen that 100 truths thing roaming out around Facebook? Honestly, I think it's stupid because what's the point of letting people you know know more about you? Like, no one cares that much. Or maybe they're just the people with guts, who are brave enough to share their love for answering questions about themselves on mainstream social media. Anyway, enough with the rambling.
Thank you Salha @The Journeys of a Girl for nominating me for the TMI tag! For those of you who don't know, TMI stands for 'too much information', and that's exactly what you'll be getting. There's 50 questions and you probably won't make it to the end.
Here's my challenge for you though. I want every one of you readers to answer one (or more) of the following 50 questions in a comment. I recommend number 11. Lately I've realised that every person has something interesting to share - and I want to know more.
1. What are you wearing?
Blue trackies and a blue fluffy jumper with a fluffy white polar bear on it. They totally clash.
2. Have you ever been in love?
I don't think so. Love is hard to find at an all girls private school.
3. Have you ever had a terrible break up?
I'm starting to feel like this school is the cause of me missing out on essential life experiences. Or maybe I'm lucky.
4. How tall are you?
Last I checked: 160cm. But fingers crossed I've grown a bit since then.
5. How much do you weigh?
50kg maybe? Stop asking me self conscious questions!
6. Any tattoos?
Maybe one day. I'd like a cute little one on my wrist or my ankle - a Chinese character of some kind of life mantra.
7. Any piercings?
Ear piercings I never use anymore.
Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky from To All The Boys I've Loved Before because I was reading it the other day and still am nowhere near over it. Lara Jean's semi-relatable, you know? And I want a Peter of my own.
9. What is your favourite show?
Call me trashy but I think it will forever be Gossip Girl.
10. Who are your favourite bands?
I just really like Taylor Swift.
11. Something you miss?
We used to have these family friend dinners and play these awesome games - like The Hunger Games, where we'd run around the neighbourhood trying to figuratively kill each other, carrying our supplies. We had a cornucopia and everything; and Murderer in the dark; and that other Murderer game with a saboteur we'd pick out of a hat, and we'd hide in that caravan like we were in a horror movie. We hardly ever have these dinners anymore, and even when we do they're not the same. People change and grow up, and we're all too influenced by the teen culture around us.
12. Favourite song?
Right now Torn by Natalie Imbruglia
13. How old are you?
14. Zodiac Sign?
15. Quality you look for in a partner?
We just need to mesh well, be able to have fun but also be able to understand each other. I want one of those relationships where we can talk till 3am, where we know everything about one another and still think each other is awesome, where we're completely honest and trusting. I don't know what qualities that guy would have. Maybe I'm just delusional.
16. What is your favourite quote?
"My heart is really pounding," I said.
"That's how you know you're having fun,"
Taken from the book I'm reading at the moment.
17. Who is your favourite actor?
Emma Stone maybe.
18. Favourite colour?
19. Loud music or soft?
Depends on the circumstance.
20. Where do you go when you're sad?
I stay exactly where I am. It's not like I can just leave or anything. If I'm at home, maybe the couch? With a bit of chocolate, a blanket and a TV show playing. Or maybe my desk, with my diary open and my thoughts trying to be constructed into words in vain.
21. How long does it take you to shower?
Depends on how much I have to think about. Anywhere from 5 minutes to 30.
22. How long does it take for you to get ready in the morning?
Around half an hour to 45 minutes.
23. Have you ever been in a physical fight?
I watched Fight Club last night and now I kinda want to, if there was no threat of dying or suffering major injuries anyway. I mean, I probably have been in one - that time in year 1 where I hit a guy with my hat and made his nose bleed. I was the traumatised one because I thought he would tell and I'd get in trouble.
24. Turn ons?
I hate to say it, but attractive. Confident and funny too I guess. But then I feel intimidated so it never really works out.
25. Turn offs?
Rude, doesn't have their life in order, acne, swears a lot, clingy, irritating, smelly.
26. The reason you joined the blogging community?
I guess I just liked the idea of having one. I had all sorts of ideas on what to write, and I still do. Maybe I wanted to share my thoughts rather than just having them enclosed in some secret diary?
27. What are your fears?
28. Last thing that made you cry?
It was probably a movie.
29. Last time you said you loved someone?
I always say it to my mum. I just don't like the idea of people who find it awkward to say "I love you" to their parents. I mean, they're family and they've said it to you all your life. You know you do love them, so why not tell them so?
30. Meaning behind your blog name?
I'm actually not the biggest fan of it to be honest. I made it about a year ago and I'm not planning on changing it any time soon though. I guess it makes sense because this blog is a bit about my life, and I am just little in this whole big world around me. So I guess this blog is about The Life of Little Me.
31. Last book you read?
To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.
32. Book you're currently reading?
Paper Towns by John Green. I want to read it before the movie.
33. Last show you watched?
The last TV show was The Vampire Diaries
34. Last person you talked to?
My dad this morning.
35. The relationship between you and the last person you texted?
She's a friend. We sit next to each other in Latin.
36. What is your favourite food?
37. Place you want to visit
New York, Venice, Prague, pretty much all of Europe.
38. Last place you were?
The mall. The cinema specifically, where I work.
39. Do you have a crush?
I don't even know what that feels like anymore. I think so, possibly on multiple people or possibly just on one, or maybe they don't qualify as crushes at all.
40. Last time you kissed someone?
Kissing my mum goodnight.
41. Last time you were insulted?
What is it with people nowadays insulting each other as a joke. Being insulted feels kind of endearing, because you feel like you're close. Probably yesterday.
42. Favourite flavour or sweet?
I like the pink and purple gummy lollies. Or anything salted caramel.
43. What instruments do you play?
The piano and the trombone. Although I haven't touched either in a week.
44. Favourite piece of jewellery?
Any white gold earrings I own.
45. Last sport you played?
I went for a 5km jog this morning.
46. Last song you sang?
I absentmindedly sing along in the car sometimes. It was probably Taylor Swift or James Blunt.
47. Favourite pick up line?
If you were a fruit, you'd be a fineapple.
48. Have you ever used it?
Yeah. That's why it's my favourite. I used it on some poor tired boy at the mall.
49. Last time you hung out with anyone
I went to see Ted 2 with this guy on Friday
50. Who should answer these questions next?
These guys have some pretty interesting stuff to say:
Kate @The Goodness Revolt
Arushee @Unadorned Gifts
Star Girl @Star Girl Productions
Archie @A Bundle of Contradictions
Comment. I dare you.
