50 facts about me!

So I think it's about time you guys get to know me a little better, so I've decided to do the '50 facts about me' tag, even though I wasn't actually tagged, I just feel like doing it!

Oh and if you're reading this I TAG YOU to do this, if you haven't done one yet of course, and please, if you do it, post a link in the comments, I'm a right nosey-parker and love finding out random things about people!

1. My middle name is Louise.
2. I was born 12th September 1993.
3. I have two dogs that I love to bits.
4. I try to volunteer as much time as I can at animal rescue centers and have done since I was 14.
5. I study Animal Behaviour at University.
6. I currently live with my boyfriend and his family (as it's a lot easier to get to uni everyday from his place).
7. Since living there I have become bros for life with the family's African grey parrot, Mickey.
8. I have one sibling, a younger brother (who's 18 in March).
9. My favourite colours at the moment are duck egg blue, rose pink and mint green.
10. I adore the Studio Ghibli films and even have a tiny Totoro on my rear window of my car.
11. I drive a little pale blue fiat 500
12. I actually went to Lincoln university for my first year of uni, but transferred to Manchester for my second year as I was constantly heading home and travel costs were shocking! (Even with my 1/3 off railcard)
13. I love to paint, especially animals, though I need to keep practicing! 
14. I'm pretty sure my clothing collection has doubled in the last year!
15. I am ridiculously shy when first meeting someone and have been told I come off as really cold for the first few meetings!
16. But after that I really open up and often you can't shut me up!
17. I actually have rather low self-esteem/confidence and have actually had councelling for it (but I didn't find it helpful in the slightest).
18. I love ice-cream, it's one of my favourite things.
19.When I was younger I wanted to be an ice-cream van driver.
20. Now I want to run a rescue/rehabilitation/adoption center for animals, mainly dogs though.
21. I was going to become a vet until I shadowed one for almost 2 years and decided it wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
22. I have a quite big tattoo on my ribs.
23. I have 7 piercings (all on my ears).
24. My guilty pleasure is terrible day time TV.
25. I have no allergies but have pretended to be allergic to nuts a few times (because...)
26. I can not stand nuts!
27. I can not leave my room without makeup on, unless it's just me and my boyfriend.
28. I have very slight OCD, though it only applies to colour co-ordination in some things and my clothing drawers.
29. Spring is probably my favourite season as I love it when the blossom on the trees bloom.
30. I hate being in the ocean when it's deep enough that you can't feel the bottom.
31. Probably because I used to have the biggest fear of sharks.
32. I get obsessed with video games from things like Zoo Tycoon to Skyrim to GTA, I just can't control myself!
33. I used to work behind a bar.
34. I hate the dentists (even though my boyfriend is training to be one and practically his whole family are dentists!)
35. I have so many Disney songs on my phone and blast them in the car for a good ol' sing song when driving.
36. I ramble so much, whether it's writing or talking, I just don't know how to keep on track or stop talking.
37. I love Norse and Greek mythology, this last year I have been reading up so much about it, it's so interesting!
38. I can talk to anyone about anything in a professional situation but if it's social, I panic and end up saying something stupid, rude or nothing at all!
39. My favourite animals are wolves and domestic dogs.
40. My favourite flowers are tulips.
41. I have never ever broken a bone *touch wood*.
42. I've only ever had one boyfriend (the current one!)
43. I get obsessed with TV shows and if I've only just started watching it and I am behind on episodes I will not sleep until I have caught up, I nearly died in the Great How I Met Your Mother 8 Season Marathon of '13.
44. It's disgusting but I have an little obsession with popping spots, and if I see one on my face I will not stop unless the blighter has been annihilated! 
45. People who drive unnecessarily slow or fast annoy me, speed limits are a thing, people!
46. I sometimes get really bad travel sickness that can last for hours even when I'm no longer in a vehicle.
47. I often get really grumpy when hungry!
48. One of the best things I've ever done was work in the field with a vet in South Africa!
49. Another amazing thing I did was work in Uganda for a month, living out of a backpack in a tent, helping to build a school and then trekking through the largest mountain range in Africa!
50. Lastly I really appreciate that you've taken the time to read this post and visit my blog, Thank you!

Well that's all folks! It's so wordy, I hope I didn't bore you too much. This was actually a lot more difficult than I was expecting, thinking of random facts off the top of your head is not as easy as you'd think!

Keep smiling!

    As for popping spots! Even if they end up redder and bloodier then when I first started at it, I'd call it a success! :P
