Tags are excuses to be nosy

My little sister, who was tagged by my mother, who was tagged by another sister, tagged me. I will take part in this family game of tag, but I am afraid the family connections end here.

Do you have a middle name?

Unfortunately not and I am still not over it. I was not worth the extra thinking for an additional name and I am pretty sure that I was not consulted.

What’s your favourite subject at school?

English Literature, languages (Spanish/French), and history. Teachers have a significant impact on the preference towards a subject but I genuinely enjoy studying them- reading suddenly becomes studying.

What’s your favourite drink?

Strawberry juice. It’s light, smells of summer and looks like blood. 

Favourite song at the moment?

The birthday song. Isn’t that everyone’s favourite? Who doesn’t love their birthday? Happy Birthday mum!

What would you name your children?

This one is difficult. If someone were to pry into my computer and look through my personal documents, they would find a curious little word document with a list of names for any future children I may have. The list is embarrassingly long and as I don’t want more than one or two children, the few I may have will be burdened with the names of many. Where I do not have a middle name, they may have more names than they can spell. The latest additions to my ever-growing list are Nina and Adina, and I most recently crossed out Caramel and Aphrodite; in retrospect, they are terrible names.

Do you participate in any sports?

I enjoy sports but at the moment I do not participate in any, unless yoga is included. P.E class used to be my only form of exercise but now that I am on study leave, I hardly move.

Favourite book?

Anything with words.

Favourite colour?


Favourite perfume?

Light, fresh and fruity with a hint of spice. I currently smell like Calvin Klein’s Beauty.

Have you graduated High School?

I am in the process of graduating Secondary School, with only three exams left. High School is for Americans and if the movies are anything to go by, they don’t do much studying.

Have you ever been out of the country?

I have been to Algeria, Spain and France. I dream of travelling everywhere but I am parent-bound and my mother is unadventurous. Since the invention of the internet and Google Earth, she can not see the point.

Do you speak any other languages?

Spanish, Arabic and French. I can count to twenty-nine in Basque and say ‘I hate you’ in Somali.

Do you have any siblings?

Yes. They claim to be related.

What’s your favourite store?

When it comes to shopping for clothes, I have no preference. I’m not one to go by brands and designer names. If I can afford it and it does not make me look terrible, then it’s mine.

Favourite restaurant?  

I’m not a big fan of food. So, anywhere with a nice view and preferably not in England.

Do you like school?

It depends on the day, but generally, I do. More so this past school year, when I just happen to be leaving. I didn’t like it a few years ago. I felt that it was a lot of pressure and the social aspect made me cringe; I can not handle school drama.

Favourite youtubers?  


Favourite movie?

Again, difficult… I enjoy the Harry Potter series, I enjoyed the Hunger Games, but those are just the first ones that come to mind, not necessarily my favourites.

Favourite T.V shows?

I hate all these ‘favourite questions’. It is much easier to decide on your least favourite. I enjoy Downton Abbey, The Apprentice, The Vampire Diaries and more recently, medical programmes such as Junior Doctors and 24hrs in A & E.

P.C or Mac?

Neither. I know the internet, not their techno-vessels.

What phone do you have?

HTC Wildfire S.

How tall are you?

A more appropriate question would be, how short am I… Ridiculously short. My younger sister is much taller than me.

I now tag a non-related blogger. Becky, you’re it. I know you have exams, so pass it on if you don’t have time.
