I saw this tag on Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books blog and, even though I wasn’t tagged myself I decided to give it a go. After all why should I work on completing some of the tags in my queue when I can post this one instead.
The photo of me is from my March trip to Edinburgh. It was taken just after reaching the top of Arthur’s Seat on a really sunny and really windy day so I probably don’t look my best but honestly climbing to the top was such an achievement for me, and in the end I think it’s a decent enough photo too.
Name: Bethany. No one calls me that unless they’re angry with me though!
Nicknames: Beth is obviously the one everyone uses. My sister calls me Bee and someone I used to work with called me Bevvo (please no one else use this one).
Birthday: 14th June.
Star Sign: Gemini.
Occupation: At the moment I am an Allocator for Marks & Spencer. I have just completed my Level 2 though so if that is signed off (fingers crossed) I am hopeful that I can move into either Buying or Merchandising. I haven’t worked out which I’d prefer yet.
Hair Colour: A shade between blonde and brown.
Hair Length: Right now a couple of inches past my shoulders. I am trying to grow it longer though so that answer will change in a couple of months.
Eye Colour: Blue.
Best Feature: I’m going to say my hair. Whenever I go and get it cut or styled I always get complimented on the shade or the thickness of my hair.
Piercings: Three in each ear and one in my belly button.
Tattoos: Nope, there are some really gorgeous designs that I’ve seen but I don’t think I’d suit one.
Right or Left: I’m right handed.
Best Friend: Sophie. She was born one day after me so I think we became friends because our mums got chatting in the hospital. We grew up together but eventually we realised we weren’t actually that close and just drifted apart.
Award: I got a Duckling Award for completing the Grade 2 ASA Duckling Swimming Award Scheme (I have no clue now what this is).
Sport: I’ve ever been a big sports person but I think it was netball. I was Goal Defence on the netball team in high school.
Real Holiday: Every year when I was a child, ever since I was four, me and my family went to Cromer, Norfolk for a week or two. When I was younger it was my favourite place. My first holiday outside of the UK was to Costa Del Sol, Spain.
Concert: My mum took me and my sister to see Busted because she (my sister) was obsessed with them. I can’t remember much about the concert but I do remember getting to leave school early to get there on time.
Some of these, film and book mainly, I can’t possibly pick my all-time favourite so I’m going with my favourite for 2016.
Film: Captain America Civil War. Has anyone else seen this yet, if so please come and fangirl with me over this film because I saw it on Thursday and I am still not over it yet.
TV Show: iZombie. Previously I would have said Supernatural, which don’t get me wrong I still love and always will, but honestly season two of iZombie has completely beaten season 11 of Supernatural, hands down.
Song: The most played track on my iPod is Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Lorde so I’m gonna say that’s my favourite.
Restaurant: Mangetout. It’s an American bar/grill restaurant in Southend and it has, hands down, the best food I have ever eaten.
Shop: Waterstones. Of course it had to be a bookstore.
Books: So far for this year The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi.
Feeling: Tired. I have a little bit of a headache as well but for me that’s kind of the norm.
Single or Taken: Single.
Eating: Cadbury Crunchie Rocks
Thinking About: Going back to work tomorrow. Blogging. Things I still need to get done today.
Watching: CSI. The original one in Las Vegas, not the New York or Miami ones. Original series for the win right?
Wearing: Pyjamas and really fluffy socks.
Want Children: At the moment no but never say never I guess
Want to be Married: Same as above.
Careers in Mind: Honestly I’m not sure, currently it’s moving up to become a Buyer or Merchandiser but that could change a couple of years down the line. I’m keeping my options open.
Where You Want to Live: In the UK, and also hopefully one day, London. In the whole world either New York, Amsterdam or San Francisco.
Do You Believe In…
Miracles: I’ve never really thought about it much before but I’d like to believe they do.
Love at First Sight: No. Lust at first sight yes but not love.
Aliens: Yes. There’s so much of the universe we haven’t discovered I can’t believe that we are the only intelligent life out there.
Soul Mates: Yes. I think it’s a really nice idea but it’s something that has to grow between two people over time. I don’t think it’s a case of seeing someone for the first time and knowing that they’re it for you. I believe there are loads of possible people who could be someone’s soul mate, it’s just through time spent together and knowledge of one another that two people become soul mates.
Kissing on the First Date: I think it depends on the situation and the people on the date.
Yourself: Yes. I think it’s been a long time coming but I’ve got a lot more confidence and faith in myself now.
Well congratulations if you made it all the way to the end of this post! I really hoped you liked learning more about me.
I’m not going to tag anyone in this because I wasn’t tagged myself, I just did this on a whim, but if anyone else wants to complete this tag then go for it. Send me a link to your post so I can get to know you in return.
