I’ve come to the conclusion I’m a very nosey guy, let me guess, you’re also a very nosey person as well? Honestly if I hear a sound outside my window I’m up, peering through the curtain. Often whispering to myself “there’s nothing there, you’re safe” and then closing everything up and worrying myself to sleep. Only to wake up and see it’s one of our bins which has fallen over due to a measly gust of wind! Okay, it doesn’t always (ever) go like that but you get the picture. I enjoy being nosey and I enjoy finding out new things about people, with this being said I received a notification from a rather fantastic blog to get just that chance.
The blog in hand – http://raeofsparkles.com/
If you haven’t heard of this blog or seen anything on there before prepare to be amazed. Plus there’s plenty of glitter, who doesn’t love some glitter?
Anyway from what I’ve gathered it’s just answering 20 questions about myself, which gives you the chance to be nosey and learn about me! So, here we go.
20 things about me!
What’s your nickname? Dobby, yes you read that right, Dobby. I’ve been stuck with it since a kid and it isn’t leaving anytime soon! It’s down to the Harry Potter films, my small stature and my similar second name. It’s considered as my actual name now; no one ever calls me Jake anymore. Apart from my parents! If I’m out and someone’s calling me Jake it just seems weird. No I’m not a house-elf either!
How tall are you? I’m not too sure on that, I’m pretty small though. If I were to take a stab at it I would say around 5’3. Yeah I’m tiny.
How old are you? 19. I’m still rather young, lucky for some ay!
Birth place? United Kingdom, a little town called Oxford. Well not little but you know what I mean!
Ancestral home? From what I’ve been told there’s some Caribbean in me, Trinidad and Tobago to be precise. Although I’ve not visited there before I would like to go one day. In all honesty I’ve never learned too much about where I come from, I just consider myself as British.
Favourite colour? Definitely blue, there’s something tranquil to it, why am I relating tranquillity to colours?
Favourite verse in the Bible? Unfortunately I’ve never read the Bible, I can’t answer that one!
Favourite cuisine? Definitely Italian! I could live on their pizza and pasta!
Favourite artist? I would have to say 2pac, he was a very interesting character. He was rowdy at times but most songs were for the people without voices. Well, that’s what I took from him anyway. Obviously there are a lot of his songs which are more aggressive in nature but he’s always inspired me for some reason. He created music for the masses. Music you could relate to!
Strangest talent? The ability to work my way into embarrassing situations…In all seriousness though it would have to be my attempts at creating poetry. I never thought I would like poetry in the past but I seriously enjoy it, I’m not a professional or anything of the sort but I guess it’s a small talent of mine.
Drink of choice? I don’t actually drink alcohol! I think that’s what this question was asking, but my favourite drink is definitely a cup of tea. There’s nothing better than coming home from a wet and rainy day with a hot cup of tea and a pack of biscuits.
Biggest dream? To be able to own my house. There’s something rewarding about being able to own your own house and it’s a realistic dream as well. Although I have ambitions to travel and see the world, being able to come home after a 9-5 and say “I own this house” is a huge achievement. Well in my eyes anyway!
How do you take your coffee? Sorry, only tea for me!
Currently obsessed with? Reading! I’ve only just got back into it but boy do I love it. If you have any suggestions please feel free to recommend them to me!
Biggest fear? I think bungee jumping or sky-diving. Those two just make me shudder! I just don’t get them!
Something you never thought you would get to do? Travel. I never travelled as a child and we didn’t really venture out of our town a lot. I created my bucket list on this blog and that inspired me to actually take my first trip, ever. That was to Paris with my friend and at the time it wasn’t as ‘spruced’ up as I thought it would be but it was an experience I never thought I could do. Now, I’m hooked!
Humanitarian cause? I always help anyone who needs it, but I tend to help out the homeless a little more. I’m not sure if that’s wrong to say but I just hate the idea of a child being on the streets with little food and shelter, it’s horrible.
Skill you would like to learn? How to cook properly, most of my stuff is basic pasta and beans on toast! But I would really enjoy getting my hands into complex dishes, it’s impressive stuff and a huge life skill!
Experience you want to have? I’m not sure if this is considered an experience, but I would love to have a child one day. Obviously far into the future of course but I would love to have a little version of me running around!
Something random about yourself? I can re-watch The Office and not get bored. I don’t know what it is about that show but for some reason I just love it!
There we are! 20 things about me.
I think I’m supposed to nominate a few people to do this as well but it’s quite hard to pick a certain amount of followers therefore I’m going to cheat, I want all my followers to do this. Only if you want to of course. I think the fact you’ve decided to follow me and my writing means something, why am I not getting to know you guys?
Thanks once again to Shauna from http://raeofsparkles.com/ for including me in this! Definitely check out her blog, I would be very surprised if you didn’t like it!
I look forward to being nosey and reading your posts!
