A Few Random Things About Me...

I was getting sick of the first post people saw when they came on here being the previous one, and since I haven't got round to doing my Medical Humanities post yet (cause of the joy which is revision) I thought I'd post one of those "All About Me" questionnaires. Why? Cause I'm sad. 

Who or what always puts a smile on your face?
Comedy shows. Glee. The Big Bang Theory. And my brother when he breaks out of his shell to try and make me feel better. And when people from Twitter who I've never met ask me if I'm ok when I tweet that I'm not. Sometimes the virtual world is nicer than the real one.

What are you reading at the moment?
Ummm, The Passage by Justin Cronin, Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell's latest book (I can't remember the name). All of them. At the same time. Oh, and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Marquez. And the latest StudentBMJ.

What's your earliest memory?
Sitting under the tree in our garden on a bench with my mum and dad talking about Lion Bars and Snickers.

What is your greatest fear?
Moths. Although I am getting better! Acutally, it used to be jumping into water. I couldn't even do it at the swimming pool. But I haven't tried in years so maybe I wouldn't be quite so scared any more!

How would you like to be remembered?
As someone nice.

Have you ever done something you've really regretted? 
Yes. Many things. The earliest was cheating on a test when I was in Year 6.

How do you spoil yourself? By buying a new book, taking it to Starbucks and settling down with a grande something-or-other. Or with chocolate!

What's your favourite word/book?
Captain Correlli's Mandolin. The book, not the words.

Who do you turn to in a crisis? My mum.

What makes you angry?
Game Shows with stupidly large prize funds. Do they know how many African villagers they could save from starvation with that money?? And stereotypes. And people not respecting other people's views.

Are you in love?

What are you proudest of?Getting through this last year without doing something really stupid.

Where's your favourite city?It used to be Stratford-Upon-Arvon. I haven't got one anymore.. 

When was the last time you cried?

One wish; what would it be?That the human race would just get on with each other. Life is too short to get annoyed.


  1. Oh God, I used to LOVE doing these things on Myspace. It's like a "get to know yourself better" questionnaire. Everywhere I turn I hear about Marquez - think it's a sign I should read him too?! You're first memory is so lovely and simple, and made me want a Snickers bar... And if you're afraid of moths - have you ever seen the Mothman Prophecies?! YAY to getting through this year without doing anything silly, and, do not worry, you will definitely be remembered as more than nice!

  2. You should definately read him! His books are so lyrical :) I read it because I kept hearing about him everywhere too!
    No I haven't, and I don't think I want to...I'm reluctant to even google it. What is it?
    Thanks Rosie :)

  3. Hey, I agree, these are great :D I love that you're reading 50 books at once- I'm not reading anything! @_@ sad state of affairs. (Though I have been working my way through the Sandman Graphic novels, they're awesome). And have you ever read the Shadow of the Wind..? That's brilliant and lovely-ly written too!
    Moths I can handle, though they are ominous when they're just perched on the wall...¬_¬ Spiders on the other hand *SHUDDER*

  4. Hi Humaira :) The Shadow of the Wind is one of my favourite books! Up there next to Captain Corelli :) Have you read The Angel's Game, his new one? Also brilliant
    I'm getting better with spiders. I just hate how moths flutter...
    *Waves back* :D
