After seeing this tag on lifeofaninspiredteen‘s blog (go check them out!), I thought I’d give it a go. This tag is much more than just a lighthearted round of questions – it’s much more personal and delves into your ambitions and regrets so I thought I’d have a go at answering the questions.
The rules for the tag are simple:
- If you get nominated, the person who nominated you should have come up with your questions
- If you get nominated, you don’t have to complete and post the tag but try and work out the answers for yourself
- After you’ve done the tag you have to come up with 10 or more questions and a few extras in case the person doesn’t feel comfortable answering some of them
- After you’ve come up with your questions nominate 5 or more bloggers to do the tag
- Answer as honestly and seriously as you can
So here goes..
If they made a song about your life, what genre would it be?
Probably really cheesy pop. It’d be definitely an ear worm – you know, that sort of song that you hear one second of it and it’s in your head all day, no matter how hard you try to get it out.
What is your sole purpose in life?
I believe that I was put on this earth to travel the furthest, smile the hardest and love the strongest.
What do you regret doing?
This is going to sound really corny but I don’t actually regret doing anything. I’m one of these people who believes that I am the way I am today because of things I’ve done in the past. Everything that’s happened before now is the reason I’m the person I am today so I don’t think I’d alter anything at all as I’m pretty happy with being me. If I had to honestly choose one thing that I regretted doing, it’d probably be having a flapjack at lunchtime. Moment on the lips, forever on the hips..
What are your strengths?
I think I’m pretty good at listening and being there for someone. I like to think that my friends and family can come to me to talk about anything.
What are your weaknesses?
My biggest weakness is definitely caring too much. Some might say that this is a strength but in my eyes, I see it as a weakness. I guess caring too much means that I’m more prone to getting hurt and getting walked all over.
What is something that not many people know about you?
If I wasn’t a lawyer, I would be a singer. In actual fact, I auditioned for ‘The X Factor’ in 2013 (I think it was..) and got asked to re-audition, but never did. Not many people know that about me either. I’m such a dark horse haha. But yeah, in high school I really wanted to be a singer so I started a YouTube channel (that is probably still in existence but I’m not gonna find it because I don’t feel like cringing today). I don’t really know why I gave it up but I haven’t sung properly in almost five years so I probably sound terrible now.
What has been the best decision of your life so far?
Moving to London for university. I became a completely different person and I’m so happy with everything now. I gained confidence, gained a set of amazing friends who I’ll remain friends with for a very long time, and I gained independence. I don’t regret one bit of it at all.
What are you afraid of, and why?
I have a lot of generic fears (heights, spiders, mice, small places etc.) but I think my biggest fear is getting attached to people in case I lose them. I think this is because throughout childhood I was constantly moving around the country, meaning I would lose touch with friends and not see my family as much.
Where are you going in your life?
My short-term plan is to find a little job in York to get some funds behind me before I decide which country to move to for my graduate job.
My long-term plan is.. I honestly have no idea. I just want to have a successful career (God knows doing what) and travelling the world before I settle down and have my own little family.
The additional questions added by lifeofaninspiredteen were:
If you could re-live one moment again, just once, what would it be?
It’d have to be when I spent the morning shopping at a flea market in Florida with my granny and granddad. I didn’t know it at the time but she had terminal cancer and would die a few weeks after we got back home so I think I’d love to just spend time with them both again as I miss them both so much.
If you had the choice to re-meet someone and make everything change between you, who would it be and why?
I’d definitely meet Justin Bieber again (My World tour, not the other month) and make him fall in love with me. He wouldn’t be the way he is today if he had some Siobhan loving in his life hahahahahahahahahaha.
Who, that you know, are you most jealous of and why?
I’m not really jealous of anybody. I’m pretty fortunate and I know that although someone’s life might look like it’s full of daisies and roses, it’s not always like that.
If you could change one thing about yourself, appearance wise, what would it be?
My frumpiness. I seem to lose weight, yet my appearance never changes. I hate it.
What’s the one opportunity that you really wanted to do but missed out on?
Work at Walt Disneyworld Florida. I applied for five years in a row. I eventually got shortlisted for the 2015 season. I then got offered a job but had to wait for a position to open up for me (they’d over-estimated the amount of positions they actually had). In the process, I’d made friends with so many of the candidates. By the time I heard back from the recruitment, it was too late for me to be able to go due to visa applications and university so I had to withdraw my application. I was absolutely heartbroken. What made it even worse was seeing all the people I’d grown close with go and have the summer of their lives whilst I moved back in with my parents and watched Disney movies for three months solid.
If there was a movie made about you, who would you cast to play yourself and why?
Jennifer Aniston. She is my ultimate female crush. She’s a phenomenal actress too.
What the one thing you’ve done in your life that’s made you most proud of yourself?
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island for three years and you could take one person and one other thing with you, who and what would they be and why?
Harry Styles and a baby’s crib. I don’t want our future son or daughter getting sand in her nappy as they sleeps.
What’s the most meaningful and kind thing anyone has ever done for you?
Made me tell them what was bothering me. It made me feel so wanted and like someone genuinely cared about what was the matter. It meant a hell of a lot at the time and it still does.
What character from either a book or a film do you feel is most like you and why?
Dory from Finding Nemo/Dory. She never leaves Marlin’s side. I never leave my friends’ sides. She stays right by him until he finds Nemo. I stay right by my friends until they don’t need me anymore. We always makes every challenge into a game.
And we’re forgetful as f***.
Who’s the most influential person to you that you don’t know (actor, singer, youtuber etc.) and why?
I honestly cannot think of someone right now. The only major influential person to me is my granny, but I knew her so she doesn’t count. I guess Dory is gonna have to be my answer for this one too.
Describe yourself in one word.
Describe your life in one word.
Since I’m pretty new to this whole blogging thing and haven’t really got a circle of fellow bloggers to nominate, I nominate anybody who reads this tag to have a go at it. Don’t forget to link your posts below so I can have a little nosy!
