Honest Scrap Tag

I've been a little out of blogging action recently, so apologies for that firstly, and apologies for doing a tag that went around a week ago, and I didn't even get tagged to do! In fact I've never been tagged I don't think! :( lol. The reason why I've not been blogging is I've been back at my parents house, it was my Mum's birthday, and my parents wedding anniversary so wanted to be around for that. Anyway I'm back home now and I wanted to do this tag because I've read a few people's and think this is a really nice way to tell you a few things about myself.
1. I have had a guitar for 8 years, a present on my 14th birthday, and I still can’t play it. I’ve just brought it up from my parents place though so who knows, I might learn a few chords.
2. I did a degree in American Studies. At school there was never one subject I thought I would like enough at uni to study for three years, so decided on American Studies because I found out I’d be able to study whatever I wanted, literature, history, film studies etc...I also got to spend a year in America which was the happiest year of my life. I met the most amazing people and it still feels like my second home.
3. I moved to London about 3 months ago from the Midlands and I love it, but I don’t see me spending my entire life here, I want to go back and live in the States, Canada or New Zealand!
4. I can get really shy with people I’ve just met which really annoys me and I wish I could be more confident. I would hate to be mistaken for being rude, and when people get to know me, they see my louder chattier side.
5. I’m 22 on the verge of 23 but I’ve always looked a couple of years younger than I actually am. Some people tell me I look even younger. It really bothers me which a lot of people don’t understand, I know I’ll be glad of looking younger when I’m in my thirties, but for now it’s just an annoyance. It’s embarrassing getting ID’d when I’ve been legally able to buy alcohol for nearly 5 years!
6. I decided when I was 5 years old I wanted to be a writer. I didn’t even know at that age that people could make a living from writing novels and articles, I just knew it was what I wanted to do, I’ve always had a vivid imagination and used to write my own “books” and illustrate them! Even now I still want to make a career from writing, in what form, I don’t mind.
7. I’m a fiercely loyal person and will bend over backwards for the people that I love. I don’t know my extended family very well at all, so I feel really close to my immediate family, they, along with my close friends mean the world to me, much more than I let them know.
8. The trait I hate most in a person is rudeness. There’s absolutely no need for it. I’ve worked in customer services in the past and been on the receiving end of some really rude comments for no apparent reason other than they’re nasty people! I think everyone should work in a restaurant/cafe in their lives, it honestly makes you a much better customer knowing what they have to go through.
9. I have an obsession with tea, I think I’ve tried about every variety and like most of it, I honestly don’t think I can function without my morning cup of tea. Strangely I discovered tea in America, not the UK, I started off with coffee but found out I couldn’t drink a lot because it gives me palpitations! Another dream of mine is to open my own tea shop!
10. I can’t drive, and I’m not sure I will ever be able to. I put in for my test once, and failed, and didn’t really get back in to it. I guess I hate the whole being watched while I’m driving, it’s scary enough as it is. If I do ever get a license though, I really want to own a mini. I’m only 5’2” so it’s the perfect size for me!
So there's a little insight to me. I tag anyone else that wants to do it!

I would have tagged you - but I just left it open for anyone and everyone to do :)

I am exactly the same as you on number 10 - I failed once and have never bothered since, I'm also 5ft2 and I want a Mini Cooper as they are GORGEOUS!

I agree with so many of your answers!

I'm shy when I first meet people too and I'd hate for it to come across as being rude.

I'm 24 and still get asked for I.D.! lol.

I'm obsessed with tea in a major way, I'm addicted to the stuff!

Great post. xx

@lydia driving is just too expensive and scary, but the thought of owning a mini defintely makes me want to pass me test. Ithink I'd like a black one!

@victoria at least I'm not the only one then! A lot of my friends look older than me though so I sometimes get singled out for ID! Agh!
