50 Random Facts About Me

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

So I've been blogging for a little over a month now and there's quite a few of you already reading my posts. Thank you lovely people for all your nice comments, it really makes my day to see that you like what I write. So as a month has passed already I decided it was time we got to know each other a little better and therefore I'm gonna share 50 random facts about me with you guys. If you have done a post like this before or decide to do one after you read this please leave me a comment below and link to yours, I'd love to go check it out!

So without further ado...

1) The first concert I ever went to was Aaron Carter (yes Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter's little brother). My dad took me on my 8th birthday and I was so in love..

2) I've always been the smallest one in my class - this started in elementary school and still hasn't changed

3) I've always been reading lots but I couldn't for the life of me name a favourite book, it's just too hard..

4) I can however name my favourite Harry Potter book and it's undoubtedly "The prisoner of Azkaban"

5) I am hoping to move back to London one day (for good!)

6) London is my favourite city in the world and I'm positive that this will never change

7) I want to go skydiving so very badly but I think once I'm up there and it's time to jump somebody will have to give me a friendly push.. :-O

8) I'm really into indie/alternative music with a never ending love for the Arctic Monkeys (you wouldn't have guessed that after #1 eh? ;-) )

9) I enjoy going to concerts and seeing my favourite bands perform live but I don't get to do that all too often because I live in what I'd describe as 'Musical Death Valley'

10) The last band I've actually seen was Bastille in Munich last November and I loved it!

22) I met my best friends and the most amazing people when I lived abroad and on travels I did

24) I got my first pair of glasses when I was 7 years old

25) I don't have a green thumb, more of a black thumb really...

31) I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter...

32) I've once seen a play at the National Theatre where one of the characters said: "There's nothing a nice cup of tea can't put right", in an incredibly posh British accent and it became my incredibly posh British mantra, much to the annoyance of everyone around me

33) My favourite colour is red even though I own practically only 1 or 2 red items of clothing so nobody would ever guess...

35) I'm a pro at procrastinating

36) I own enough perfumes to last me a lifetime

37) I have too many books - or too small a room...

38) I love the seaside, and I don't mean 40°C sandy beaches but more like rough coasts with strong winds and massive waves

39) I want to point out that I am in no way against 40°C sandy beaches, they seem like a good idea for summer holidays

  1. I have attempted to do a similar post but couldn't find many things I thought were interesting or worth sharing!
    I caught the travel bug a few years ago and as soon as my post-grad studies are over and the bank account is looking a little more healthy I will be off - and hopefully living in London as well!

    Great post!
