Versatile Blogger Award…πŸ’«

I was nominated by the lovely Melissa of Castles and Hurricanes for the Versatile Blogger Award, thank you so much! Definitely go check out her post here. I have never been nominated for anything (I don’t think I have, sorry if I have been). But, I thought I shall attempt this- yeah it is a little different to what I usually do and I hope I do this right because I have never done one of these before. (Also I thought I would switch up the header and attempt my own drawing). Here we go…

Award Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 more bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

7 Facts about me:

  1. I was a vegetarian for most of my teens (about 11-16 years old), however my parents got worried that I wasn’t eating enough so I started to eat chicken again (I don’t know why I thought that was the answer haha). I still don’t eat a lot of meat and I love the veggie options a lot, especially when cooking myself dinners. However, I do still eat some meat nowadays.
  2. I adore history. It was actually one of my favourite subjects at school, and I have always explored “historical” places around the UK with my family- specifically my Grandad and my dad. It just makes me so happy and I love talking to my grandad about all things to do with history. I love exploring old buildings or museums. I have also been to Poland on a historical trip, and went to all the museums and camps etc (it was definitely eye opening and I cried a lot). I guess I am a little nerdy haha, but I am ok with that.
  3. I am currently studying a Masters in Child and Adolescent Psychology. I did my Degree in Psychology. After my Masters I want to become a research assistant for a bit, and then hopefully look into Phd’s. I am very scared about that though haha. Eventually I would like to become a child psychologist.
  4. One of my ultimate passions is dancing. I just adore dancing. I did it competitively when I was younger for about 5-6 years, and it was just heartbreaking to have to give it up. However, I have recently got myself back into it and I am just loving it. Best decision I have ever made! I think if I wasn’t so passionate about psychology and I didn’t give up dance in the past, that is probably what I would be doing as a job to this day!
  5. I went through a very emo/scene phase when I was 14/15 years old. Honestly. I dyed my hair black, I would back comb my hair, I would wear bright coloured bow clips in my side fringe. I also had bright coloured tights and jeans (yes I know)… literally I had orange, blue, purple and red tights and also bright blue, red and purple jeans haha! I am so glad that social media was not a thing when I was younger haha! I still listen to the same music though, even if my style has changed.
  6. I love drawing cartoons and anime. I grew up just drawing all my favourite cartoons and anime characters, I even tried to create my own character and I named him and literally loved him haha. I was so proud. But, I do have loads of books and pieces of paper just filled with my drawings! I did actually show some on a header of one of my blog posts (which I have never done online before), which if you wanted to look you can here.
  7. My memory is insane. I am very good at remembering faces and things about people. I don’t know how but I am good at remembering facts about people too, or just random stuff that sometimes my friends will ask about something they did and I will instantly know/tell them, even if I wasn’t there haha.

what is one fact about yourself? Share in the comments so we can get to know each other! πŸ’–

  3. I like that you used a drawing for a header-so cool! I think it’s awesome that you love exploring historical places and learning more about them. And I’m glad to hear that you’ve gotten back into dancing again! You seem pretty passionate about it, so it seems like a great hobby to pick back up again for you. I don’t think I really went through that much of an emo phase, but at the beginning of high school I know I had a bunch of wild colored/designed jackets (you know, like lighter jackets that I could wear all the time) that my mom thought were weird lol.
