Tag You're It - Get To Know Me

10 Jun 2014
I don't normally take part in viral tagging posts, "awards" and things like that BUT I really like the sound of this one as I thought some of you might like to know me better :)
Thank you to Zili In The Sky Book Reviews for the tag.

Tell Us 5 Random Facts About You
1. I have hypermobility in my joints to quite an extreme degree. This means I have problems with joint pain and occasionally my joints partially dislocating (ouch) but as an upside I have a really cool (yet mildly gross) party trick of being able to bend my arms pretty far in the wrong direction at my elbows.
2. I am currently studying for a Masters degree in Forensic and Investigative Chemistry.
3. I have an irrational fear of spiders and a rational fear of murderous psychopaths. Luckily it is only the former I find in my house in a near weakly basis.
4. Despite looking as British as possible I am actually about 1/4 a mishmash of various races. My Grandma was from South Africa and my Granddad's family was Egyptian.
5. I used to dance a lot as a child and still love to dance when I can and watch as much as possible
When Is Your Birthday?
June 16th (yes, very soon - I'll be 21 this year :D)
What Is Your Favourite Colour?
 What Is Your Favourite Memory?

Getting my Hogwarts acceptance letter. Oh wait, that never happened (I'm still waiting) ...

Describe A Day In Your Life...

My life massively varies day by day as my University schedule varies wildly, some days I have no lectures, others I have 9 till 5. You can guarantee that in the evening I will be sat reading a book for an hour or two and I am also often found on the computer doing work or blogging (or being distracted by cute pictures of cats).

What Are Your 5 Favourite Songs?

Let It Go - I'm not a Frozen super fan but I am crazy in love with this song.

Angel With A Shotgun (Nightcore remix) - I don't know why I love this song so much but I do.

For Good - Makes me all teary eyed when I hear it :)

Jar Of Hearts - Just a lovely song that makes me want to dance.

Feel The Love - <3

If You Could Eat Only One Thing For The Rest Of Your Life, What Would It Be?

Chicken. It's pretty much all I eat anyway :P

What Is Something You Really Dislike?

Insects. Hate 'em the flying, crawling creepy buggers.

Summer Or Winter?

 Summer, as here in England that means slightly less rain than the rest of the year.

If You Could Live Anywhere In The World, Where Would You Live And Why?

Probably America as then I would be able to attend more signings and bookish events and also not be limited by mail costs to England.

Name 5 Of Your Favourite Films

The Shawshank Redemption - A thought provoking and incredibly moving film.
The Usual Suspects -
Memento - The main character suffers from short term memory loss and cant remember anything for more than a few minutes and has to use notes and other messages to remind himself of what has happened as he tries to hunt down the people who killed his wife. The story is also told BACKWARDS. Enough said really.
Airplane - Hilarious slapstick comedy with some truly memorable lines.

If You Won The Lottery What Would You Buy?

I would build a giant "bookstore" that gave kids book for free. I would also have a giant house built and turned into a rescue centre for cats with medical conditions. It's sad how many people want to get rid of cats (or any animals actually) with medical conditions that are relatively easily treatable but need daily medication or treatment that works out costly.

Favourite Day Of The Week?

Monday. It needs love too :P

What 3 Things Would You Take To A Dessert Island?

My kindle (of course) along with a solar powered charger and a device that magically gives me internet access. Sun cream.

Sweet Or Savoury?

HAS to be sweet, unless it is Chicken :P

Neither. I both go to bed early AND rise pretty late.
