facts

 January's outfits.

I am a silly forgetful person and meant to post about this a while ago. Over the last couple of weeks I've been given blog awards by Roni Feels Nostalgic, Lure of the Dark Side, Skinny Moonstick and A Gypsy's Journal. Thanks guyyyyzzz! So apparently I'm supposed to share seven facts about myself.

1. I'm studying to be a teacher, but the thought of talking to a room full of people (teenagers!) really scares the crap out of me. I can't really talk for long periods of time without getting all nervous.

2. I have a Diploma of Music, otherwise known as The World's Most Pointless Qualification.

3. I love the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy and watch them at least once a year. No, I haven't read the books. I tried, and failed.

4. While we're on the subject of books/movies, I think Harry Potter is the best thing ever.

5. I have a tattoo of a treble clef on my wrist that I often forget about because it's so tiny.

6. I really like prawns.

7. Up until a couple of years ago, I pretty much dressed like a dude. Band shirts and army pants ahoy!

I wish I could add something super interesting to that list, like "I AM AN ASTRONAUT" or "I WRESTLED A BEAR". Perhaps one day! Toodle-oo.

    1. Aw thank you! Sometimes I whip out the ol' army pants from time to time :)

  2. Oh yay! What a treat of a post to read! I loved it.
    As far as getting nervous, I think that'll go away with time...but I'm the same way...and I'm still like this. Hmm..
    Oooh, tattoo, you say? I'm going to keep a closer eye out for this little guy.
    Probably a dumb question, but what are "prawns"??
    Wee! I dressed in ripped jeans, band tees and skater shoes or chucks until I was 24! I was a big ol' tomboy as well. Then Mikey bought me a pretty dress and I was changed forever. I love being so in touch with my girly side now and then channeling my inner tomboy every now and again. Sorta like I did today. :)
    Oh, you could have also said that you're a collector of kitty prints and you aspire to be featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for it one day?? ;)
    Lovely post, doll. *hugs*

    1. Haha thanks! Prawn is a prawn! Google it! I think maybe you would call it a shrimp? Not really sure though!

    2. OOOhhh a shrimp!!! hahaha I love "prawns" then. :)

      P.s. You've been awarded, yet again on my bloggy.

  3. Yay, congrats.
    Loved your 7 facts.
    I'm fairly sure everyone has a useless diploma, it seems to be part of growing up these days. I know 2 people who have work that matches their education and everyone else has gone in to something totally unrelated!
    You'll be such an awesome teacher, you'll be every pupils favourite for sure xo

    1. Oh you! Haha yeah, the diploma was a big waste of time but at least it kept me occupied for a year. Thank you, I hope I will be the cool teacher and not the weird one!

  4. Aww, your outfit posts are really cute! x

  5. Still love your yellow dress! :) I wouldn't worry about the qualification - I did my degree in Film Studies and Drama, which has provided quite unuseful in the career I want to go into! x

  6. Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings are definitely one of the great things ever! With out a doubt (I´m a fan as well, haha).
    And well, I´m studying to be a designer, which at the moment doesn´t seem to be that needed either; and besides, music always increases your culture level right?!

  7. LMAO Wrestled a bear baby this is why I adore you.
    I also like prawns. There is this Chinese food place my family always goes tot hat has walnut prawns. They have a sweet, creamy sauce and lettuce and well, walnuts and they are divine. I also want to be a teacher ;-; I am scared I'll never get work but I feel like if I don't become a teacher I will have an empty void in my life that I will never fulfill. When I decided to try and switch majors I had this deep, soul swallowing, depressed feeling I couldn't get out of until I realized it was because of it. It was kinda crazy.

    Dude did sheinside email you back? I haven't gotten any notifications and I emailed them twice :[

  8. I totally love HP too! Like still bummed that the story's over. haha
    I'm glad you finally did this.
    Kudos for having a tattoo, especially of a music note. (I love tattoos.)
    And I don't think you'd want to wrestle a bear. You may not survive! For sure.

  13. Prawns and Harry Potter, I think they may be have to be a universal agreement that they are the best things ever :)

  18. What a cute list of facts! Not only am I a huge HP fan also, but I have a tattoo which I always tend to forget about (& then get slightly surprised each time I notice it hehe). I think your little list is quite interesting, it's always fun to learn random things about the bloggers you follow :)

  19. I just found your blog through Roni's and it is super cute. Congrats on all of those awards! Wow. I considered being an art teacher, started the classes for it and everything but realized I couldn't talk in front of all the kids. I am sure you will be fine!! I just prefer being a hermit and doing my designs at my computer haha. Practice and time will really help. And yes - Harry Potter is the best :]
