17 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I always love reading and watching stuff where you learn knew things about people.  It's just so cool to see how different everyone is and what makes them so original.  I've seen tons of people do tags like '50 Facts About Me' and similar things so I thought I would do '17 Things You Didn't Know About Me' to mix it up a bit.  Without further ado here are 17 things that you didn't know about me...

1) I'm Home educated

I am currently home educated but I have been to school plenty of times.  After moving house I started a new primary school and went there for about a year, but it was so bad for a number of reasons.  Something that I hated a lot about that school is that nearly everyone there was an international so every time I made a friend they would leave, I was constantly surrounded by new people I didn't know.  After being home educated for three years I decided to join secondary school.  I went there for almost two years.  All I'm going to say about that is that I'm glad I left.  😂

2) I'm 5'2

Yes I know, I'm very petite, but I have the French side of my family to blame for that!  My parents are both average height but all the females on the French side of my family are about 5'3 or 5'2.  Don't get me wrong though, I do love being petite!

3) I have 7 Siblings

I know I know, that might seem like tons to the average person but I'm so used to it that it doesn't feel like many to me.  I love having all my siblings, we're all so close, I don't know where I'd  be without them.  Being the second oldest is perfect for me because I'm naturally a little bossy and when it comes to the older siblings, well they're allowed to be a tiny bit bossier.  😉

4) My Favourite Video Game is the Sims

I don't play video games at all really, but I have been obsessed with the sims ever since I first started playing it about 10 years ago.  It's just so fun and a great game to play if you're ever bored, it's best on the PS4 though.

5) I Love Knitting

I learned to knit years and years ago and I've just been hooked ever since.  It's great to do while you're watching a film or chatting away.  It feels so good to be wearing something like a jumper that you know you made.  It's a proud moment.

6) I Hate Maths

I really hate maths.  I used to love it so much but I've got maths trauma from primary school (another reason I hate school, they try and put you off everything).  Of course I still do maths, I just hate it.  My brain just completely shuts down as soon as I start doing any.

7) I Love English Literatue

English literature has always been my favourite, along with any type of science.  This is just a subject that I really enjoy and I'm atually good at.  I'd love to get a masters degree in it.

8) I Stopped Wearing Makeup for a Year

I just got so so sick of wearing makeup.  It wasn't helping my skin get better at all and I'd been wearing it for 2 and a half years without a break.  Having that year long break was one of the best things I ever did.  My skin got so much better and I  learned a lot about what suits me and what doesn't.

9) I'd Like a Lot of Children

Growing up in a big family has been such a lovely experiance for me and so that has kind of pushed me to wanting to have lots of children of my own.  I sometimes say I want at least 10 children but it's always changing.  I'd be extremely happy with just one.

10) I've Never Had to go to the Doctors

I'd like to say I'm a pretty healthy person considering I've never had to go the doctors.  I've never even broken a bone.

11) I Love Long Distance Running

I've been doing long distance running since I was about 7 years old.  It's the only type of running I like.  Without sounding too bigheaded I'd like to say I think I'm pretty good at it.

12) I've Dyed my Hair Black Before

About 2 years ago I dyed my hair black.  It was meant to be a temporary dye but it just never washed out.  I had to go through a horrible stage of growing it out, and honestly, there were days when I felt like shaving all my hair off.  I don't think I would've ever gone quite that far though. 😂  I have currently got black on the last 3 or 4 inches of my hair but it's faded a lot and actually looks alright.  Anyway, what I learned from this is to never dye my hair again and appreciate what colour I already have.  Remember that, fellow redheads!

13) I Don't Have a Mobile Phone

Shocking I know.  It's not that shocking when you find out that I have an iPod Touch and can do everything you can on a normal mobile phone other than ring people which I don't particularly want to do anyway.

14) My Real Name is Honey

My real name that I was born with is Honey and I love it loads but I called my blog after part of my middle name, mainly for anonymity reasons.

15) I Learned to Read When I was 3 Years Old

English has always been my thing.  Although I mainly wanted to learn to read so I could join in with everyone doing karaoke.

16) I'm English, French, Spanish and Welsh

I love all the countries that I'm from so that's a first. 😂 

17) I Uploaded my First Video to YouTube when I was 11 Years Old

I wanted to join in with the YouTube gang and so I uploaded a few videos to YouTube when I was 11 years old.  I gave up after about 5 videos though.  *cringe*

That is all for this tag.  This was really fun to do and I hoped you learned something new about me.  I tag Marina from Marina Writes Life, Andrea from IndigoSkysBlog, Grace from Somewhat Reserved and Imogen from Imogen's Stories .  Anyone can do this but those are the people I'd really love to see do it.   Don't forget that the questions can be related to anything about you, it could be random things people didn't know about you, it could be beauty related things people didn't know about you, just whatever you want!  If you do this then please tag 3 or more people to join in.
