I share a lot of information on my blog and across my social media channels but I don’t really share a lot about me! I thought these Weird and Random Facts would be a fun way for my followers to get to know me a little bit!
1. I Am 5ft 11”
Would you have thought that? The first thing most people say when they meet me for the first time is something like “the height of you”, “you’re much taller in real life”.
I wasn’t always tall, in fact I remember being the smallest in my class in first year. Then during that summer… BOOM!
2. I Am Terrified of Edward Scissorhands
He actually ruined my childhood! I was scared to go to the toilet because I thought he would come up out of the bowl with his scissors! Snoopy the Dog also scares me but I’ve no idea why.
3. I Am Beyonce’s #1 Fan
I’m obsessed with Beyonce. I’ve seen her so many times now and love her more and more each time.
4. I’m not a Great Flyer
Considering I travel a lot, this may come as a surprise to some people. I wasn’t always afraid of flying though. Myself and Darren had two really bad flying experiences and we’ve been nervous flyers ever since. It won’t ever stop me from travelling though. Feel the fear and do it anyway, as they say! You can read some tips on how I keep myself calm during flights here.
5. I Am Terrible at Geography
It’s funny because I did higher level geography for my Junior Cert and got a high honour! Although all I remember learning about was rocks, tectonic plates and rivers. What would have been much more beneficial is learning about the world, its layout, the capitals of each country or even ways to develop my sense of direction (see below). I’m getting better though because any time I visit somewhere, I try to learn as much about the place before and during my stay.
6. I Have Absolutely Zero Sense of Direction
None. I got lost going to work before. The same job I had been working in for 4 years!
7. New York is my Favourite City
Before moving to New York, we had visited 5 times, we quite literally couldn’t get enough of the place hence… here we are (“,) You can read about some of the reasons I love New York here.
8. I Can Only Eat Soggy Cereal
I could literally be moments from death and I could not force myself to eat crunchy cereal. What’s even worse is when they are half soggy, half crunchy!
9. I Can’t Cook
Honestly, you wouldn’t believe how bad I am. I put it down to not being very patient in the kitchen. While something is cooking, I’ll go off and start doing something else, and then forget about all about it (“,) Luckily for me, Darren LOVES cooking (and I love eating :p).
10. I’m a Nail Biter
Well… I WAS a nail biter :p I bit my nails for yearsss but I don’t any more. How did I stop? I found that when I had my nails done, I didn’t want to ruin them, and so I wouldn’t touch them! So now they’re always done (when they’re not, I start picking!) I’m very proud of how long and healthy they are now!
