As ever I want to thank you for joining me on this journey called life. You have all been so kind and supportive. I appreciate the overwhelming amount of encouragement that you all give to me. It means a lot and it fills my heart with joy.
I feel that I have shared quite a substantial amount about me, but it has usually touched on the same few topics and so I thought it would be fun to share a few random things about me that you probably did not know and perhaps get to know me more as a person.
So here goes…
My favourite word is “Bungalow”. Nothing to do with the meaning, it is just fun to say.
I know this is heavily frown upon, but I put ketchup on my fajitas! Most people that discover this about me act like I’ve broken some unwritten rule. Hey ho, I like what I like!
My favourite band is System of a Down. I love music and in many forms, from Taylor Swift to Killswitch Engage. System of a Down though, they’re my childhood and listening to them now gives me the same feeling as it has over the many years I have listened to them.
I am a Pot Head. No, not the kind you smoke. I am quite a big fan of the Harry Potter franchise, be it the books or the movies. A very good series indeed.
I am an avid video gamer. Some of you may know this, but for those of you that are new to my blog, you may not. I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember. My favourite kinds are story driven games. Ones where you can get lost for a few hours and spend time figuring out how to progress or just enjoying the story itself. My all time favourite genre is old school Point and Click adventure, but I play all genres, as long as I enjoy the content.
I have ran a half marathon. On my 25th birthday, some good friends of mine took me on a trip to Paris. As nice as it would be for the trip to be a sightseeing experience, it was actually to run the Paris half marathon that happened to be on my birthday. Needless to say I hated every second of it. I’d suffered a knee injury during training, but I was determined to cross the finish line, so I hobbled most of the way. Once I finally made it across, I collapsed to the floor and had to be carried off on a stretcher. Not my finest moment, but I got my medal!
I lived in Texas for 3 years. After my 25th birthday, I got a kind of buzz to do more daring things. This led me to travel to the other side of the world in the name of love. I found myself in Texas and spent 3 years living between there and the UK. Unfortunately the love did not last, but the entire experience made me a braver person.
It’s my birthday tomorrow and if I’m lucky, I get to go to the zoo!
That is all I can think of off the top of my head. Either I have a pot memory, or my life is really quite boring!
Either way it is mine and I’m grateful for it.
Until next time, it’s good to know you!
