50 facts about me

Hello everyone and welcome back to My Blurred World.

I hope you’re all doing well.

Today’s post consists of 50 random facts about me. I gathered that most of you don’t know much about me therefore I thought that this post would be the perfect way for you to gain an insight into my life by learning a few more things about me.

I have published a similar post to this in the past but have since deleted it as I wasn’t happy with the quality of writing in it, so if you’ve been following me for a while then you might remember that post but here I am writing it once more for you today.

I hope you all enjoy today’s post and without further ado we shall begin.

1. I am 17 years old but will be 18 in July.

      Thank you! Yeah I agree, I love these kinds of posts because it just allows you to learn a bit more about the person behind the posts you read xx

    Lovely post. 🙂 I can be fairly quiet until people get to know me better as well. And I have quite a sarcastic sense of humour and am very happy to take the mickey out of myself. I usually watch Pointless, the BBC’s rival to The Chase, but both shows are good. I just wish Pointless would do longer runs of new episodes at once, as they go back to repeats very frequently. I love Apple products too – I have an iMac, iPhone, and iPod (though I don’t particularly need the latter with a phone now), and I’m tempted to get an Apple TV next. And the alarm-setting thing isn’t that unusual – my radio is set to come on at 6:59 on weekdays, which gives me a minute to wake up in time to hear the news headlines. Although, quite often, I’ll wake up shortly before it’s due to go off anyway, like 6:55 or even 6:58. Happens to a lot of people I think. 🙂

      Thank you for your comment Glen! I watch pointless occassionally but not as often as I used too, i think I stopped watching it because of the fact that they repeat episodes as you said. Aww I’m so glad I’m not the only one with the alarm thing haha, I don’t feel so alone anymore 😂 Thank you for reading 🙂

    Hello again Elin, Thank you for sharing!
    In response to numbers 9 & 10. I think they are closer than you think.
    A lot of young writers now are doing exactly what you are doing, writing
    their own blogs & journaling. Even taking a collection of your favorite blog
    posts, & formatting them into a small book or edition is another step in that
    direction. We no longer live in a world where we as creatives have to wait
    for a book deal or publisher to approve our opinions & content, all this
    technology is at our fingertips. Having a blog you have already made an
    impact & have a connection with your readers.The future is full of possibility.

      This was such a lovely comment to read, I will definitely come back to this when I need some motivation about my writing! Thank you for another lovely comment, I couldn’t agree more with your points.
