Facts About Me.

Wednesday, 6 February 2013
I have seen millions of these blog posts flitting about recently and thought I would do one myself to allow for you guys to get to know me a bit better. I've seen some people doing 25, some 50, and some 100. I figured I would just do until I ran out. A testament to how interesting I find myself.

  1. My name is Caroline. Everyone calls me Kaz. I hate it. A few people call me Callie. I much prefer it. I wish it would spread, but it doesn't. Stuck with Kaz.
  2. I have had 15 piercings, including a stretched ear. I currently sport 7. 
  3. I'm not totally sure what my natural hair colour was. I remember thinking it looked like dull poo.
  4. I have a hamster called Oscar who looks like a cow.
  5. I LOVE my dog fiercely  I get upset with people who hate dogs. How many other animals are loyal enough to stay with their owners through a house fire or other trauma? 
  6. I love lipstick, I wear it almost every day.
  7. Everyone would look better with well maintained eyebrows. Fact.
  8. I could watch Tangled all day, every day.
  9. I was born in Miami and have dual nationality.
  10. I horse rode for six years before giving it up for lack of time.
  11. I write every single day.
  12. I've kept a journal since I was nine. (Now it's a Journal. Back then it was a My Secret Diary Keep Out Or Die.) 
  13. I used to have two pet albino ferrets called Ebenezer Scrooge and Bacon.
  14. My car is named after Bellatrix Lestrange.
  15. I will never stop loving Harry Potter. He was my childhood.
  16. I worry all the time non stop about stupid things.
  17. I once ate two large Domino's on the same day on my own.
  18. When I am stressed, I clean things or tidy. It helps clear my mind.
  19. I read Meine Kampf when I was 16.
  20. I really enjoy watercolour painting.
  21. My perfume is Diesel, Fuel for She.
  22. I will rename my blog when I finish studying. :) But it's a secret until then!
  23. I have a horrific phobia of pregnancy. Being pregnant, giving birth, holding babies, pregnant women, all of it.
  24. The only TV I really enjoy are documentaries about serial killers.
  25. I wanted to be a lawyer my entire childhood life until I did law at A level.
  26. During college I had to go to a special needs woman once a week because they thought I was dyslexic when I wasn't. I had to paint pictures to help me revise.
  27. I am the opposite of a home bird. Whenever I start to settle and locals get to know me, I get an overwhelming sense of panic and desire to leave.
  28. I will live in Brooklyn when I finish university as soon as I can get a job. I have never wanted to be anywhere other than NYC. I want to be a small fish in a big pond, writing every day.
  29. I have seen Enter Shikari live three times.
  30. Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles is my all time favourite song.
  31. I don't like fizzy drinks.
  32. Tom Hardy is my dream man.
  33. When I'm ill, I milk the attention.
  34. I hate when boys fight it scares the life out of me and is so unattractive.
  35. That said, if someone offends me I will be the first to confront them about it until I get an apology.
  36. I was bullied in college. I don't know if you can even really be 'bullied' at the age of 17, 18 but I can't think of another way of saying it. She is the only person I genuinely hope fails in life, she destroyed my self esteem and confidence even up until today.
  37. I love listening to classical music, I'm like an old man.
  38. I bite my nails terribly
  39. I'm really driven. People who are my age and still have no CV or work experience drive me crazy. You are over 20! Pave your life, don't sit around waiting for it to hit you!
  40. Nothing is more comforting than a warm cup of coffee.
  41. My knees bend a funny way so I can't walk straight.
  42. I'm ashamed of most of my past, and it haunts me all the time.
  43. I would love to be covered in tattoos.
  44. Sometimes I get scared nobody will ever marry me because I don't want a baby!!
  45. I used to drink myself ragged, now I rarely even drink on special occasions. 
  46. I didn't realise how much of a snob I was until I worked in a dodgy town full of junkies!
  47. I had a Charizard on Level 100 on my Pokemon Red. My proudest achievement.

  50. I would taken a bullet for my dog and never even hesitate to think about it.
  51. I'm really good at giving advice and love to help people. 
  52. My first language was Portuguese.
  53. My favourite place is France, it's romantic. (Not Paris. The French countryside.)
  54. When I was little I filled countless sketchbooks with my favourite animal, wolves.
  55. When one of my dogs died my nan got the wrong end of the stick over the phone and thought my dad had died. She rang the whole family to tell them and the police came round to help my mum with the body. It was all a bit humiliating when my crying mother had to explain it was the dog that was dead and my dad was actually very healthy and away on business abroad. We also had to call the family and explain my dad wasn't dead. Just the dog.
  56. I have asthma.
  57. When I was 7 my appendix burst as the doctors opened me up. Yuck.
  58. Once at the doctors a litre of vodka rolled out of my bag and stopped comically at his feet. He asked if I needed to discuss alcohol intake and I had to explain it was for my flatmates birthday to share.
  59. I have a recurring nightmare that when something bad is happening I start to lose my vision and ability to stand ( like when you're really drunk) so I can't escape.
  60. I was four marks off an A in my Politics A Level and it drives me crazy to this day.
