19 Things About Me

Hey, I’m Grace. 

To be honest, I’m not very interesting, and you would probably walk past me in the street and not give me a second glance, which is cool, I don’t mind. However, even though it will probably bore the majority of you, I have decided to write a blog. This is due to the fact that writing is probably one of the only things I’m good at, and, to me, the thought of writing a blog is pretty decent. (Sorry for the informality, I’m an English language student, and it’s good to not be so formal all the time). But anyway, here’s a few things that I thought you should know about me, considering you’re reading my blog and probably thinking what kind of weirdo rambles on like this:

19 Things About Me

1. I’m 19 years old, which is why I have decided to do 19 facts (see, I can be original)

           2I’m currently studying English Language at university, and it is going quite well, which is surprising, considering I started the year doing psychology and only changed 7 weeks in. This basically highlights how I have no idea of what I want to do with my life, as I couldn’t even pick a course I was interested in.

          3I have a sister who is 21 years of age, yet she looks about 12. I unfortunately also have these genes, and look the slightly older age of 14 (debatable). We are however holding out for the moment that everyone hits 30 and looks 40 and we both look 20, although this will probably not happen.

          4. I’m from the North East of England, which by the way, does not mean that I’m a Geordie. However, my flatmates, which are all from down South, cannot understand me or tell the difference between my accent and the Newcastle accent. This can prove to be quite annoying, as they all mimic me and accentuate the way they say ‘no’ when they are around me.

          5. Due to my accent, people cannot understand the way I say my name. Therefore, many people have called me Chris, and it has gotten to the stage where I just have to let them call me Chris, or write my name down. This proves difficult in public areas with nothing to write on, so letting them call me Chris is just easier.

      6. I had singing lessons last year, and it was something I really wanted to continue, but my studies and confidence got in the way. However, singing has always been a passion of mine, and hopefully, if I can get over my fear of singing in front of people, I can start it again. (By the way, the only reason I started lessons was due to also dancing at the stage school. Unfortunately, I learnt that I couldn’t dance to save my life, so swiftly moved onto the singing.)

           7. I love listening to music, and some of my favourite bands are blur, The Verve and The Wombats. (my favourite album of all time is probably ‘This Modern Glitch’)
           8I have had a boyfriend of 4 years (I know, I’m surprised too), who is one of my best mates. He’s an idiot though, but we can let that go. (hey, that rhymes)

            9I have had 4 guinea pigs, 3 hamsters, and 4 goldfish.

          10I studied English Language, English Literature, Psychology and Geography at A level. I wasn’t a massive fan of sixth form, but I met one of my best mates there, so it wasn’t all bad…

          11I have played the piano since I was 7 years old and love it. I can also play the saxophone and the cello.

          12I love travelling and really want to go interrailing after university, but that would mean spending money that I do not have. Ah well, a girl can dream…

.     13. My favourite films are Back to the Future, Grease and One Day. I always wanted to be Sandy from Grease, and I really want to partake in a performance of Grease.

          14My favourite book is ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ by Jenny Han. I love this book, as I read it when I was 14/15 in Cornwall, and it always reminds me of that holiday and summer.

         15I love pigs, blob fish, manatees and sloths.

         16I’m not very sporty, but I love watching football.

          17My favourite holiday destination so far has been Florida, as I love Disneyland and Universal as I’m a big kid. My favourite holiday was when we went to New York for a week and then flew to Florida for 2 weeks, it was insane!

          18. In 10 years, I hope to be writing. No idea what, but ideally, I would like to be writing in some kind of magazine/newspaper or doing script work within the media, probably rambling on about nothing as I do now.

         19. Growing up, I loved Simpsons Hit and Run, Need for Speed and Mario Kart, and used to never be off my Playstation 2. I was a very cool kid.

So there you go, that’s me.

See you soon,

Grace x
