Ten Facts

Hey guys!
I don't have much to talk about at the moment I'm afraid, my day has involved a lot of rain, a seminar and a lecture at University, going to the post office to collect a parcel (my new shoes!), doing a lot of reading for my Clinical Psychology module, eating ice-cream to help my sore throat, curry, and a trip to the gym shortly. Exciting stuff, eh!?
So I thought I'd do a 'Ten random facts about me' type thing again, just to let you guys know a little bit more about me. I'd love to hear a random fact about any of you in the comments so feel free to share!

01. I live with two boys and yet I'm the one everyone runs to, screaming, upon finding a spider/moth/wasp/other insect in our house. Seriously, is it so hard to open the window and let it out!?

02. I'm in my final year of my Psychology degree now and I'm doing modules in Addictive Behaviours, Atypical Child Development, Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology, as well as my Research Project/Dissertation. So far I love them all!

03. I'm an obsessive sticking-things-on-the-wall person. It's therapeutic to do and therapeutic to look at and means I know where all my photos, gig tickets, train tickets, business cards etc. are! It does, however, mean I go through an obscene amount of Blu Tack...

04. I have serious attention problems. I can't concentrate on one thing for more than about ten minutes - this afternoon I've been making notes and I don't think I've written more than about five lines in a go before I've decided that it's crucial that I reorganise my wardrobe/clean the kitchen/check my Facebook/you get the picture. This is okay at the start of the semester but once deadlines begin looming (as deadlines are so fond of doing) it becomes problematic. I tend to alleviate this problem by avoiding such distractions, and this is why you will find me in the Library at Uni at 9am tomorrow, even though I'm technically off all day. Dedication or what!?

05. I like cooking, particularly of the experimental variety. Prime example: Once I fancied bacon sandwiches, and Rob was craving curry... So we made bacon curry and had it in sandwiches rather than with rice. It was actually really good!

06. I find travelling on trains calming mostly, although they have also brought on panic attacks in the past, weirdly enough. They don't even have to be busy, sometimes I just don't seem to be able to deal with them. It's really strange.

07. I don't know what I want to do with my life. At the moment I'm considering several options: Clinical Psychologist, working with addiction sufferers, something to do with neuroscience, working with children/teaching, and some kind of sports psychology. These change regularly and it doesn't help that now I'm in third year, every other day someone tells me I ought to be planning The Rest Of My Life. Eek!

08. I have ridiculously massive feet (no, seriously, I'm a size eight) and really short legs. Somehow I manage to look in proportion most of the time but I cannot find trousers to fit. This isn't helped by the fact that my thighs are stupidly out of proportion with the rest of me - if trousers fit over my thighs, they are huge on my waist. If they fit my waist, I can't move my legs. Argh!

09. I'm unsure of my natural hair colour. I've dyed my hair since I was about 13 and I've had it black, blue, various shades of red, purple, pink, blonde/orange (only for a few days at a time when I've bleached it though!) and brunette. I'm bored again and thinking of going blonde even though it will most likely look horrific.

10. I have an (apparently unhealthy) obsession with leopard print - we're talking shoes, tights, socks, skirts, tops, sunglasses, head bands, earrings, bangles, scarves, brollies, dressing gowns, purses... I'm considering a leopard print tattoo down my shoulder. I can't explain it, it happened overnight and now I love it!

And here are my new shoes. They're nothing too exciting, just to replace my sadly worn-out Osiris trainers which I've had two years and which now leak like you wouldn't believe. I say replace, I'm not actually planning to throw them away, they'll merely be relegated to Sunny-Day-Footwear ;)

Hope I haven't bored you too much with these & that you're all doing well!


  1. I have exactly the same problem with trousers! It's irritating isn't it? I have one pair of trousers that fit my thighs and waist and they are a bit short!

  2. very nice blog! I follow you!!
    look my sketches if you want!
    big hugh!


  3. that pair of shoes look cool dear! i love your blog <3

    follow me if you love to, and i'll follow you back :)


  4. I can relate to you about big feet! I'm a 7 or an 8 sometimes and it's rather annoying for when I want to order shoes online. And the trouser thing! I'm a slim person but my rear end is rather "ghetto" and more often than not I find my legs will get in trousers but wont go any further up ha! I feel your pain fellow Jess :P

  5. Size 8 feet aren't that massive, im a 6 though lol x
