In the past 4 weeks at Law school I’ve had more compliments than ever, most of which from total strangers. It’s insane. I can only put it down to the fact I’m just acting like “fuck yes I’m awesome” because it makes me feel good and I smile more and I’m nicer to strangers. Even if a lot of the time I’m sobbing on the inside about the state of my life. It’s just like “you go mother fucker you made it this far” and sometimes it’s enough to make it through the day.

No one tagged me.  Copy/Paste is a thing.  Do it.

Been arrested? No. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t done anything illegal.

Purposely ran a red light? Never. I’m not an asshole and that’s how you accidentally kill people or cause an accident.

Experienced love at first sight? Yeah. All the time. Every time I see a puppy or a dog in the street. That’s real love.

Totaled your car in an accident? I have yet to have a car accident in the nearly 6 years I’ve been driving. I hope it never happens.

Been fired from a job? Nope. But I’ve quit a lot of jobs, something about my sense of morals, it gets me into hot water a lot.

Fired somebody? Nope. But I have had to comment on people’s work performance that helped get them fired in a way. Oops.

Sang karaoke? Frequently after several tequila’s. I’m not saying it’s good but it certainly beats complaining about it. I can really nail a Bastille song.

Pointed a gun at someone? Not a real gun as such. But I have done a lot of Air Soft matches and my Dad taught me how to use a Glock and a hunting Rifle. Military brat and all that.

Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? Every damn day.

Kissed in the rain? My first ever kiss with my first ever boyfriend was in the rain on November 7th outside a gig. He was a nice guy.

Had a close brush with death? Suicide attempt when I was 15. Bad times. Hopefully never again.

Seen someone die? Yes. It’s like time stops and you feel heavy. It doesn’t really process until after the event. Do not recommend.

Played strip poker? Yes. In the middle of a study period in high school. Wild times, we were all expelled for a week.

Smoked a tobacco pipe? Nope, I’m not Sherlock Holmes.

Fell in love online?  Nope, I’m not sure about the love thing apart from puppies and kitties. That’s love.

Had a hallucination? Not that I’m aware of, how boring. Quick, fetch me some LSD.

Smuggled something into another country? I don’t think it’s smuggling but I did bring back a lot of questionable alcoholic beverages from Berlin that I don’t think were strictly legal.

Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes? Pushed no, jumped yes. High school was a fun time.

Broken a bone? Not yet.

Sex in a pool?  Nah, I’m starting to feel boring answering these.

Eaten a bug? All the time when I go running, kinda just happens.

Sleepwalked? Nah, once I’m in bed I ain’t getting up.

Sex on a beach? Sand in places you don’t want sand to be, so nope.

Lied to avoid a ticket? I have faked tears so close enough.

Shaved your head? You’re kidding? My hair is 80% of my personality.

Shaved your Groinal region?  Waxed babe, always waxed. Also, cheeky.

Made your boyfriend/girlfriend cry? My boyfriend sobbed when I broke up with him because I’m heartless or something.

Eaten snake? Ain’t no snakes for eating where I’m from son.

Marched/Protested? Yes, on a few occasions mostly for things like gay pride and equality.

Puked on amusement ride? Nope, cast iron stomach. I think I only puke once every 5 years if that.

Seriously & intentionally boycott something? Never had a reason to yet.

Been in a band? Nope, not my thing.

Been on TV? I have unintentionally been in the back ground of several news reports filmed in the city centre.

Shot a gun? Yes, only at the firing range. Air Soft doesn’t count as real guns, right?

Skinny-dipped? A lot. Naked swimming is something I seem to have been quite the fan of over the years.

Ridden a surfboard?  I love to surf, my eldest brother taught me when I was 4 and I never stopped.

Waterskied?  A few times, not as fun as surfing.

Drank straight from a liquor bottle? Have you met me?

Had surgery? Not under a general anaesthetic, but I’ve had minor surgery on my arms because see an above question.

Streaked? Does running down a beach or a pier to start skinny dipping count?

Taken by ambulance to hospital? Yes twice. Not going into any details.

Fainted? A lot. I’m prone to low blood pressure and anaemia. Attacking the floor becomes a habit.

Peed behind a bush? I run distance so I’m not afraid of tinkling behind a tree or bush on a long trail run in the middle of nowhere.

Killed an animal when not hunting? Never. I emergency brake for hedgehogs and squirrels for Christ sake.

Peed your pants in public? Not since I was 3.

Snuck into a movie without paying? Only a drive through and I wasn’t sneaking I just wasn’t paying.

Have you ever typed the word “multiplex” ?  Not that I know of.

Written graffiti? Yes, a lot. I did a lot of tagging when I was a teenager on railway bridges and abandoned buildings. Such a rebel.

Handcuffs? Why not, bend over…

Do you know everything you need to know about sex? I don’t know what it’s like to have sex with someone who cares about you as much as you care about them so no.

Believe in love? I’m on the fence about that, but my Grandparents have been married 70 years so maybe there’s hope.

Sleep on a certain side of the bed? Whichever side the cat isn’t hogging.

I’m so fucking lucky, really I am. I have a huge family that for the most part I like and we can count on each other. I have three incredible siblings that will always be there for me even if they aren’t in the country. I have a group of friends that make me laugh even when I’m miserable. I have made some pretty awesome internet friends. I have a really nice home and all the material possessions I could ever want. I’m healthy for the most part. I’m getting a good education. I work hard at my part time job and it is hopefully paying off.

I’m just really fucking grateful for everything.
