50 Random Questions Tag

Today, I just felt like sitting down, in my pyjamas, with a hot chocolate (well, I feel like that every day to be honest) and writing a relaxed blog post. I haven't done a tag yet and have come across the '50 Random Questions Tag' (and believe me, some of them are rather random!) on quite a few blogs and decided it looked like fun! 50 questions is quite a lot so we'd best get cracking...

1. Would you rather be twice as smart or twice as happy?
'Smart' is a funny word as one person's idea of  'smart' might be completely different to mine, however, I would definitely choose twice as happy because you surely the smile on your face can never be too big, right!? Plus, if you're happy, intelligence means nothing :)

2. What's your worst habit?
Definitely the fact that I like to pick out flaws in myself all the time. I am never satisfied with myself and never think anything I do is good enough - oops!

3. Are you dating?
NOPE, I'm a single pringle. Always have been.

4. Do you take shampoo and conditioner bottles from hotels?
I actually don't stay in hotels that often, however, when I do, my Mum and I are definitely guilty of this! I mean, if you've paid to be in the room, may as well make the most of it haha!

5. What is the one thing you'll never do again?
Turn around whilst mid-air and jumping into a swimming pool. (see question number 7)

6. Do you collect anything?
Can't say that I do. Although, I wish I did as it looks like a fun hobby sometimes! Does collecting memories count?

7. Worst injury you ever had?
I am prone to getting bruised (maybe bruises can be my answer to number 6 haha?) and falling over, however, my only serious 'injury' was when I was 10 years old and I decided it would be a great idea to turn around as I jumped into the deep end of swimming pool. I whacked my chin on the wall, the whole pool turned into a sea of red and I had to have stitches!

8. What is your favourite pet/animal?
I don't own any pets, currently, however, my favourite animal is an elephant!! Not quite something you could keep as a pet anyway though!

9. What's your dream vacation?
 This is tough as there are so many places I want to visit (I am not really well travelled) however, I'd love to go to Amsterdam or Italy (definitely not just because of the pizza....okay maybe a little...)

10. Honestly, are things going the way you planned?
I don't have a life 'plan' and like to just allow things to happen as they please for their own reasons, however, things are going okay at the moment. Of course, there are always aspects of our lives that aren't so great and we want to change but, overall, I am happy!

11. Do you have any tattoos?
Yep I have an elephant on my forehead...only joking, it's a giraffe.

12. What's your secret to lure in the opposite sex?
'Luring' definitely isn't something I have ever attempted, as I would fail miserably, and, plus, if anyone I ever liked knew that I spend most of my time in my pyjamas, on the Internet and eating pizza, they'd probably run a mile.

13. Any phobias?
What AREN'T I scared of! You name it, I'm probably terrified of it! The dark, deep water, the sea, water in general, clowns, dogs, cats, spiders, death, heights...

14.  Do you bite your nails?
Nope! They're actually really long.

15. Do you ever count your steps when you walk? 
Guilty as charged.

16. Heels or flats?
Flats! (usually slippers)

17.Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
Well wouldn't you like to know... ;) nah only joking!

18. Do you always smile for pictures?
Yes, however, it's always my luck that the picture is taken 0.1 seconds after I stop smiling.

19. Do you ever dance even if there's no music playing?
Does it count if its in my bedroom making a fool of myself in front of the mirror?

20.  Do you miss anyone right now?
My imaginary partner which I do not have.

21. What's your favourite colour?
I have too many but I think, deep down, it will always be pink!

22. Do you want kids?
I would like children but you never know what the future holds.

23. Are you patient?
I like to think so, yes.

24. Can you swim?
Yep! They call me Nemo.

25. Tea or coffee
I have never actually drank coffee and only tried tea once when I was younger and HATED it! I spent the whole time dunking biscuits into it instead.

26. What do you wear to bed?
Pyjamas. I would say 'a pair' but the top and bottoms never end up matching for some reason.

27. Ever used a gun? 
No! I wouldn't trust myself with one to be honest. If you ever told me to shoot somebody I'd find a way to do it wrong and end up shooting the wrong person!

28. Do you sing in the shower?
I take baths haha but I don't sing in it.

29. Are you stubborn?
Nope not really.

30. Are you lazy?
We all have our lazy days (mine is usually Sunday!) but lazy definitely isn't a word I would use to describe myself.

31. Can you change the oil in a car
I have no idea how to drive it in the first place, so no I can't haha.

32. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Hmm... its been a while! Probably about 6 years ago!

33. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
Hell no. I'd give people nightmares for the rest of their lives!

34.What is your favourite food?
Pizza. Did you really need to ask?? (Also addicted to biscuits)

35. Do you still watch cartoons?
No one said there was an age limit on them. ;)

36. What movie(s) can you watch over and over again and not get bored?
Has to be 'Mean Girls,' 'Love Actually' and 'Bridget Jones.'

37. What superpower would you have for one day?
The power of, when you needed the toilet, you could give it to somebody else and they could wee for you. Imagine how many problems this would solve!? (that or invisibility)

38. What's been your favourite age so far? 
I am currently 15 and cannot remember much from when I was younger, which rules out 0-7 so maybe about 9!

39. How old are you?
See previous question. (or 15 if you don't want to scroll up)

40. If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?
I suppose the typical answer here would be "don't take life too seriously" or "don't care about what others think of you," which are both good pieces of advice, however I'd just say to myself "whenever you're sad, just think there is an idiot somewhere in the world right now pulling on a door that says 'PUSH'."

41. If you knew you would die in one week, what would you do?
Probably cry about it for a bit, eat as much pizza as physically possible, spend time with my family/friends, tweet loads and take selfies.

42. What celebrity would you trade lives with?
Any Kardashian or Jenner or Beyonce would do me just fine!

43. Do people ever take you seriously?
Most of the time.

44. What happened the last time you cried?
Last night oooops!

45. Who knows you best?
Can I say myself?

46.  Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Definitely closed! My nightmares would be never ending if they were open!

47. What is your song of the week?
This is super tricky! I'm a music ADDICT, however, I am obsessed with the whole of Taylor Swift and Ella Henderson's albums! (sorry, I know this is cheating as both albums add up to around 30 songs but I listen to them every single day, without fail, on repeat)

48. Last person you kissed?
Unless my Mum counts, then nobody!

49. Best thing to eat for breakfast?
I'm really not a breakfast person, which I know is really bad (sorry) but if I had to choose it'd probably be a cereal meant for little children.

50. Does anyone know the password to your email?
Nope! I tend to forget it myself most of the time!

Feel free to do this tag if you wish!

Love, Emily :) xx
