Honest Scrap Tag

I don't think i've been officially tagged to do this but a few people have tagged who ever wants to do it so i thought i'd jump on the bandwagon coz i think it's a great tag!

So the deal is that you tell your followers 10 things about yourself that they may not already know. You are then supposed to tag 10 people.

So here goes...

1. I used to dance between the ages of 3 and 18. It’s a massive passion of mine but I was never good enough to pursue it as a career. I miss it soo much. I’d love to get back into it but think it’s really hard to find places to cater for my age group!

2. I’m a big believer that everything happens for a reason and if something it meant to happen it will. Sometimes it’s weird how things work out...

3. I’m actually a really negative person. I know it’s a REALLY bad feature of my personality but there isn’t anything I do about it. I kind of have the view that if you are negative about something then you won’t get disappointed if it doesn’t turn out well. Totally stupid I know.

4. I’m the messiest person ever. I put this down to pure lazy-ness!! I always have a massive pile of clothes on my bedroom floor that usually stays there but about a week until I realise I should really do something about it :S

5. I’m really superstitious.. I can’t walk over three grids or have my stereo on volume 13. Irrational I know but I just can’t help it!

6. I try not to care too much about what other people think of me but only my REAL friends know the real me. I’m really shy around new people. I kind of sit back and observe people first and try to figure them out. Sometimes this comes off as me being really standoff-ish but it really is just because I’m shy.

7. I’ve never been one of the ‘cool’ people... I’m a self confessed geek. Sometimes I just feel like I don’t fit in...

8. I HATE milk. I actually eat my cereal dry! It really goes through me when I see someone drinking a glass of it... YUK! I’ll have a little bit on my tea but that’s the only time I’ll have it.

9. I found the beauty community on you tube by searching for how to create waves with a hair straightener and I came across one of lollipop26’s video’s. She was the first person I subscribed to on there. From you tube I found the blogging community. I was an ‘observer’ for a long time before I decided to write my own blog. I don’t think I would ever make video’s though, I’m just not confident enough to ‘put myself out there’.

10. I have a really low self confidence. Again it’s not one of my best features but I guess a few things have happened that have just knocked me right down and I’ve found it hard to pick myself back up.

I tag anyone who hasn't already done this!!

  1. I'm like Number 3 too. I agree with not feeling dissapointed if you think it's going to be bad .

  2. I'm extremely negative too. I just can't help it! I agree, if something doesn't work out then there's less disappointment.x

  3. I too can relate to 2, 3, 7, and 10 and I can tell you it doesn't get easier with age(I'm quite a bit older than you are). Having said that I'm learning to accept this unique individual(Ahem, slowly:)!

    Maybe it's because I'm a typically passionate, deep and sensitive fellow water sign(I'm a early Cancerian as was Princess Diana:).


  4. wow! reading your post felt so weird! the person your describing (yourself obviously) sounds just like me!!
    people are always telling me not to be so negative and to gain some confidence, but like you've said i just can't help it!

  5. Hah, I did this same post a few hours ago and my 1st point was about dance and very similar!

    I am yet another reader that can pretty much relate to everything you listed!!

    Great post :)

  6. Thank you girls - at least i know i'm the only one who has some less than perfect personality traits!!

    @ sarah - i've just become your newest subscriber! :) Just read your tag and i can totally relate to ur first point! I still have all my costumes from shows etc! Ahh i miss it so much! :(


  7. I honestly think I will never part with any of my costumes. I have many boxes and bags of them and they are a pain when I move but it would be so sad to get rid of them! They would also be one of the things I would grab if the house was on fire, haha.

    I miss it so much too! :( I have tried going back a few times but it is either more competitive/time consuming than I would like or not at a level that is difficult enough to challenge me a little..argh!

    Thanks for subscribing!! xx


Thank you for your lovely comment. I love hearing from you all. :)
