20 facts about me

I thought I’d do a post where I will tell you 20 facts about me. Lets see how good I am at coming up with facts about myself. Not very good I think! Lol. And there is no one to ask since its the middle of the night!

Ok well, here goes!

1. I’ve had 3 guide dogs in total. 2 females, and nitro is my 3rd dog and my first male dog. My other two were called goldie and Maisie. Goldie was a golden retriever, and she was my first dog. Maisie was a yellow lab. I think female dogs are far more independent than the males. Males are more cuddly, more loyal, and more sensitive in my opinion.
2. I am a good singer. I used to be in stage school as a kid and I loved it. I did tap dancing, speech and drama, and singing. I was in a ton of shows.
3. I’ve been to England, spain, france, and the USA!
4. I don’t like coleslaw! I like what’s in it, but I just don’t like the texture of it in my mouth.
5. I once held a snake around my neck. I was at an animal show and the girl who owned the animals was allowing us to hold them.
6 I also held a lizard, and an owl at the same animal show.
7 I once held a starfish at an acquarium, it was an amazing thing, since I cant see them.
8. I used to collect porceline dolls. I still have a few of them.
9. I also collected reborn dolls for a while. For those who don’t know they are life like dolls, and they are super expensive. I have 3 of them.
10. I am an avid reader. I love escaping into books.
11. I’ve been to Disneyworld in florida, twice. I’ve also been to the Disneyworld in paris twice.
12. I can be very sarcastic. People either love me or hate me for it lol.
13. My favourite quality about me if my sense of humour. People think I am very funny. My partner Jess is always saying how funny I am.
14. I am allergic to cats. My allergy isn’t that bad, but as well as being allergic to them, and sneezing a lot when around them, I just don’t really like cats.
15. I used to collect ty beanie babies. I have given mine away now to my niece, but I had a ton of them, I was really really into them for a while when I was younger.
16. I once had my drink spiked at a teen disco. I was with some friends and someone put something in my drink. I got very ill from it.
17. I’ve had my ovaries removed, I had cysts on them back in 2013. The cysts were the size of melons. I had them on both ovaries. Luckily they weren’t cancerous though.
18. I’ve had my gall bladder out. I had it done through keyhole surgery.
19. I’ve had viral meningitis as a kid, when I was 7. I was in hospital for 2 weeks when I had it. I still have awful memories of that time.
20. I’ve studied childcare, social work, and applied psychology, but I never finished any of those degrees, I only did 2 years of childcare, 2 years of social work, and a year of applied psychology, my mental health always prevented me from finishing the college courses.

Candice asks the following questions this week!

Do you have a hobby?

Yes! I like to write! I also love to sing! Those are my two favourit hobbies!

How did you discover your interest in your hobby?

Writing, well, I wrote poetry as a teen. It helped me cope with the abuse I was going through. It was like a release for me. As for singing, I was in a stage school for years. I did singing as part of my activities in that stage school, and I loved it! I was in many musicals and shows!

Do you find having a hobby helps with maintaining your mental wellbeing?

Sure! It helps me to cope. Writing on my blog allows me to get support. Singing takes me out of my head. It allows me to express my emotions through song.

Where do you find materials for staying active with your hobby?

Well I wrote using my laptop. Thats never far from me. I used to take voice lessons, but at the moment I am not taking them. However I may get back to it. I also play music and sing to it. I enjoy just singing along to my music too.

Have you ever considered monotising your hobby? Or if you already do, do you still enjoy it as a hobby?

I dont think I’d like to make money from writing. I enjoy doing it and mostly do it just for myself. To release emotions. Same with singing. I dont think I’d like to become a famous singer either.

Been reading

I’ve been reading my book for the last two hours. It’s by Casey Watson. It’s called a dark secret. It’s a good read although the reader dries me crazy. However I am liking the story so far. I have about two hours of it left to read. Will probably finish reading it today. It’s been nice to just relax and read. I sat in the kitchen with a coffee and my book and I was as happy as could be. I’m hoping to finish it today and once I finish it I will review it.
