Get Personal With Me ...

As much as I like to think of myself as an open book something a lot of my friends would say about me is that I'm quite secretive about my life and never like to give too much away so when I was scrolling though my twitter one day I came across '50 questions to really get to know somebody' and decided to screenshot them and write a little piece for my blog so my readers can hopefully find the serious side of me and believe me I had no idea how long it would take to answer 50 questions but here they are and I hope you   enjoy :)

1. What's the one thing that's happened to you that has made you a stronger person?
 My father passed away when I was twelve years old and within two months  of him dying both my nanny and grandad (his parents) passed away on the same day and that's the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with but it's made me such a strong, hard skinned person which can either be a blessing or a curse at times.

2. What's the one thing that's happened to you in your life that made you feel weak?
I moved to Carlow for college and I went there as a headstrong ambitious young girl and left a different person completely, seeing how being in a toxic environment was affecting me I to this day have still never felt as weak as I did there.

3. Where is the one place you feel most like yourself? 
Without a doubt in the woods, it's my favourite place to be.

4. Where is your favourite place to escape to?
The gate, no matter what happens if you can't find me the first place to check it the gate up Farmer Whelans hill, it's nothing more than a simple gate looking down at the town and it's my sanctuary.

5. Who do you think has had the largest influence on the person you are today?
My mother, hands down.

6. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My temper, I can go from 0 to 100 very quickly and it's something I know I'll need to find ways to control.

7. If you had one day left to live, what would you do first?
Go up to the gate and then decide from here.

8. What decade to you feel you most belong in?
I don't know the exact decade this is but I can describe it exactly for you. It was the times where there was no cars just horses and carts, simpler times like when my nanny was my age that decade. The stories she used to tell me always made me wish I was around back then, no big shops just little markets and local shops, sessions in pubs, doors open for neighbours to walk in and out, that'd be my ideal decade in old Ireland.

9. Who are you closest to in your family? Why?
I'm an only child so it's always just been me and my mammy.

10. Who is the one person in this would that know you best?
Probably my friend Annmarie, we grew up together and she pretty much knows it all and has been there through it all.

11. What is your favourite quality about your best friend?
That they've never turned their back on me, a lot have but there's a certain few who have stuck with me through it all and I'll be forever grateful becuase Jesus Christ I can be a handful.

12. When you were younger what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I think the first thing I ever wanted to do was be an air hostess but quickly realised I was about three feet shorter than you need to be, I also wanted to have my own cookery show like Delia Smith and have my own cookery books and once that dream fell from there on wards it was always a presenter.

13. If you could identify with one fictional character (from a book, show, or movie) who would it be?
I'm gonna leave this blank because I remember specifically one time watching something and thinking OMG she's me..so I'm gonna try remember!!!

14. Do you easily accept compliments? or do you hate compliments?
I respond with ' I know, thanks' .... unless I know they're lying then the eyes just get rolled.

15. Is your favourite attribute about yourself physical or non - physical?
Non -Physical

16.What is your favourite physical attribute about yourself?
My eyes! They're the same as my dads so whenever I look in the mirror I think of him.

17. What is your favourite non- physical attribute about yourself?
Either my loyalty or determination.

18. Do you believe in love at first sight?
No, I believe in lust at first sight.

19. Do you believe in soul mates?

20. How seriously do you take horoscopes? 
Ridiculously!! I have a daily horoscope emailed to me every day and read it every morning before work, and then the first thing I do when I get into work is check the daily paper for another one.

21. Have you ever been in love? How many times?

22. What makes you fall in love with someone?
A beard.

23.What does vulnerability mean to you? 
It's something I'm massively scared off  so I can't really comment too much, but there are times when in order for you to move forward you have to show you vulnerability to someone and that's not the scary part, it's seeing what they choose to do with it is the scare.

24. What's the one thing you're scared to ask a man, but really want to?
There isn't anything I'd love to ask a man to be honest, anything I'd have to ask I'd ask my best friend Brannigan.

25. If you were a man for a day, what would be the first thing you do?
Slap myself for being such a twat.

26. What do you find most attractive about men?
Physically, first things I notice are eyes and smile...and a beard but non - physical someone who can make you laugh, they say if you can make a girl laugh you can make her do anything!

27. What's the one thing you'd love to learn more about?
I'm really interested in spirituality and the law of attraction so I'd love to know more about that but also I'm really interested in history so would love to know more history in general.

28. What is something you've never done that you've always wanted to do?
Been travelling, I'd love to go everywhere from LA to Bangkok ...hopefully one day though!

Money!!!  WAHHH!!! :'(

30. If money didn't matter, what would be your dream job?
A housewife with a little tea room near my home.

31. If you had an off day from work today, what would you do?
My day's off can go either one of two ways, either like mine has gone today doing absolutely nothing!!!! Or getting up really early, walking the dog and making the most of the day and there's nothing I love more than those days.

32. What was the last thing that made you cry?
Last night I had a terrible nightmare and woke up in tears...

33. What was the last thing that made you laugh?
Gogglebox Ireland, there's a young fella on it called Tadagh and he's on it with his grandmother and I just watched it earlier and was howling with laughter when he told his granny to replace the BL in James Blunt with a C....howling!!!!!

34. What is your favourite memory?
Aw so many, but probably one of the many days spent out in the avenue growing up, or dancing to Astronmia with my best friends on my 21st birthday.

35. What is the last thing that REALLY embarrassed you?
Jesus, I'd have a few embarrassing things I could tell you but the most recent one was on Friday just gone, on Thursday night I decided to try out a few face creams and had a terrible chemical burn all over me, I looked like Freddie Kruger and actually had to go out in public!!!

36. What is your biggest fear?
I know it's irrational, but getting old is my biggest fear, always has been always will.

37.Do you have any regrets? What's your biggest one?
I try not to dwell on any regrets I have if they can't be changed why waste your time thinking of them?

38. Have you ever broken a law? 
To be fair, who hasn't?! That's all I'll say on that question.

39. What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
It's questions like this that make me realise how dull my life is, the craziest thing I've ever done....... like it's nothing exciting but probably getting my tattoo.

40. Would you have a conversation with a stranger?
Absolutely! I do everyday!! I would chat to a brick wall and love when I get into interesting conversations with strangers.

41. Would you tell a stranger they have toilet paper hanging from their shoe?

A duck!! They're just so happy and cute I love ducks!! Swimming around in their ponds quacking!! The life of luxury they have.

45. What's one show you're embarrassed to admit you enjoy?
My favourite programmes are 'Room To Improve' and 'Fair City'.....that's enough said!!

46. How do you think your parents would describe you as a child?
Gorgeous!! And probably a handful, I remeber being told that when I was only a tiny little thing I was brought off for a walk in my buggy and when it started to rain my parents pulled down the plastic cover to keep the rain off me and I used my foot to dislodge it, kick it up and then said 'F*ckin Rain'  at the age of 1..but I'll ask her later what she thinks

47. If you could go back to any age or time of your life, what age or time would it be?
I'd do anything to go back to Transition year in school, I was about 16/17 had just gotten into rugby, discovered my love for Irish scrum half Conor Murray, school was the best laugh, I was with my friends everyday and had absolutely no stress apart from who we'd invite to our Friday night gatherings.... oh please Lord bring me back!!!

48. What's something you believe in that not everyone else does?
Magic :)

49. What's one thing you would say that makes you unique from other people?
Something that makes me 'unique' is probably that I'm into witchcraft and I cast spells!!

50. What's the one you feel your life is missing?
At the moment I don't really have a path to follow in terms of career or life in general so once I find that path I think things will be a lot easier and everything will start falling into place but at the moment I think my life is missing a path.

And there you have it, 50 questions answered by yours truly that will hopefully help you to understand me a little bit better, I know in my older posts I used to be a much more open book so hopefully this will be the first of many personal posts that I'll be writing soon.
If you're eager to know even more about me (which I very much doubt) I previously wrote a post about 25 facts on me so you can take a look at that too!!
Hope you enjoyed this post :)
