Twenty facts.

As I'm sure you've seen them around, I don't think I need to explain the concept, and will just hop straight onto the "twenty facts about me" trend. I know it tends to be a Youtube thing, but I haven't quite the voice for video. Instead, please find attached some of the more amusing Photobooth shots I've taken over the past few months.

1. I am currently sat underneath two duvets, in tracksuit bottoms and a massive jumper, listening to The Big Bang Theory emanating from the living room. Fashion goes out of the window when you've been dancing till three am. My whole body protests against movement, so I'm letting it win for the moment.

2. When I first arrived in Liverpool I hated it. Now it's coming close to overtaking London as my favourite city of all time.

3. In my time, I have learnt German, French, Japanese, Russian, and Latin. I guess English counts as well.

4. I have danced since the age of four. Lessons fizzled out during GCSEs, but I miss it more than I could possibly describe.

5. My mum wanted to call me Helen, my dad wanted to call me Dakota. So I was called Rebecca.

6. The first thing I ever bought with my first paycheque was a Chanel lipstick, a dark pink called number 19, and I'm wearing it in most of these photos...

7. That first job was at Fat Face. I may have left when I started at university three years ago, but I'm still in regular contact with a lot of the people I met there, and Harriet's coming to visit in just over a week!

8. Ain't no one coming between me and hummus. No one.

9. The subjects I studied to A Level were English Literature (duh), History, German, and Fine Art - so artsy!

10. I was a vegetarian for just over a year just to see if I could do it. The only things I tripped up on were eating marshmallows once, and vodka jelly, but I'm still pretty impressed with myself.

11. My all time favourite film is Breakfast at Tiffany's. Sometimes I just have to put that on, switch on the fairy lights, and have a good ol' cry.

12. My favourite book, however, is a lot more difficult to choose. Up there have to be The Picture of Dorian Gray, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and His Dark Materials (those three books had the world's biggest impact upon my childhood).

13. I have gained grade five in singing. My "talents" are now wasted on mumbling along to Example.

14. I would do stupid things for Arctic Monkeys. In fact, I have. I travelled to Sheffield from Essex with two friends and got the first train home after staying out all night.

15. I'm a little bit of a hoarder, and form sentimental attachments to the weirdest of things. But why should I throw away that shoebox?

16. I wouldn't say that I'm a perfectionist, but I'm never content with anything I've achieved, even if I receive praise from others.

17. I love to write. That's one of the reasons I started this blog, as a way in which I could share words on a personal platform. I find that university is conducive to finding places to publish work, so I've been helping out a lot with Ellipsis and The Tab (links on the left, somewhere), as well as writing in a less structured manner for other people.

18. I think that Britain is amazing. As I can't afford holidays abroad, I'm trying to make the most of my friends living away from home to stay with them. Next weekend I'm heading to Sheffield, and then there's York in a fortnight.

19. Some people from Real Life (yep, it exists!) may not understand why I blog, but I really do think that it's given me the best opportunities (more coming up on that one soon...), and the absolute best friends.



  1. I enjoyed reading this, mostly because of your love for the POOL OF LIFE and that we have things in common! You should start dancing again if you miss it!! x

  2. I love this post!
    I also keep things like shoe boxes, if you throw it away you might need it. Haha! :) x

  3. You have the best taste in books - definitely some of my favourites in there. Also hummus. There's isn't enough in the world. And I wish I had learnt Latin you lucky sonofa xoxo

  4. Arctic Monkeys are definitely worth the effort! You're so lucky having learnt to many languages, something I really wish i'd done x

  5. that last picture reminds me why i love you (wooo internet friend luuurve)...alright i'll stop being gay now xxxxxx

  6. Loved reading this post...Jane eyre was one of my favourite books of my childhood too and still is!

  7. I loved reading this post, it's nice to know a little more about the person behind the blog! And that last photograph made me giggle so much!


  8. I'm glad you learned to love Liverpool - after 5 years here, I know I'm really going to struggle when I leave!

  9. 'I think that Britain is amazing' totally agree! Manchester is my favourite place in the whole world and I've been to all sorts of crazy far away destinations. I think people need to appreciate what we have here, great cities, gorgeous beaches in West Wales and mountains. We are so lucky to be in the UK xx

  10. I love these posts, it's so cool to learn a little more about everyone! I love Breakfast at Tiffany's as well - I watched it just yesterday, and The Picture of Dorian Gray would have to be up there as one of my top books as well.


  11. I definitely need to travel round the UK more, it really is a gorgeous place!

  12. This was so interesting to read... and expressed very eloquently might I add ;). I never knew that you had learnt Japanese, that's amazing!

    I kinda want to visit Liverpool now too!


  13. Great post! I really need to travel more in the UK, I've been to so few places. x
