30 Random Questions Tag!

So Ellie from Elephantstoriesandmore has tagged me to answer 30 random questions!

1) What are you wearing today?

Well I've been wearing Pyjamas all day, but I had to go to my parents to look after the pooches tonight so right now I'm wearing this Topshop Smock Dress and some plain ol' black tights.

2) What are you listening to right now? 
Like literally? Because Aladdin is on TV whilst I'm writing this out. But in general I've recently rekindled my love for Sufjan Stevens, I fell in love with his music years ago due to it's chill vibes but have got his album out of my cupboard again since hearing one of his songs on a TV advert.

3) Do you like the beach?
You know, I'm not sure, I have a very love-hate relationship with the beach. I love taking the dogs for a walk on the beach in spring or autumn (I find in summer it can be a tad too busy most days to walk the dogs!) and I love chilling on white sand beaches when on holiday sometimes (if they're quiet). But I hate salt-water and sand gets everywhere! I can't stand it! Also, I often get uncomfortable in busy places like the beach at summer so they're not always my favourite place!

4) What is something you really want right now? 
For my uni assignments to be magically complete! Nothing would make me happier!

5) Who was the last person you added to your contacts? 
Erm... I think it was a local taxi service because whenever I'm out I can never remember or find a cab number!

6) Do you have any piercings? 
Only on my ears, but I have 7 of them, at one point I had 10 but I let the upper 3 piercings on my left ear heal because I sleep on my left side and used to forget to take them out and then they'd throb in the morning. So I just couldn't be bothered with them anymore!

7) What are your favourite stores? 
Topshop, Primark, Urban Outfitters and ARK. Also I love ASOS and boohoo online! I'm such a shoppaholic!

8) What is your favourite nail polish brand? 
Not too sure, I use a lot of nail polish but don't venture into brands and such. If I see a colour I like and the price is reasonable I buy it no matter what brand. Though I do own about 40 topshop nail polishes, and I love them, but I think I have mostly this type because I'm always in Topshop and they catch my eye.

9) Have you ever failed a test? 
I've failed one Maths module test, but not the whole unit, I resat it and passed though!

10) Do you prefer shorts or skirts? 
Skirts! I always feel exposed and self-conscious in shorts, that's something I want to change! but I do love skirts because they're so pretty and feminine and you can get all sorts of styles, colours and patterns!

11) What is your favourite social media site?
Twitter mostly, then Pinterest. I hate facebook (other than to organise uni work with other students or keep in contact with friends) and I used to love Tumblr but I have practically stopped using it all together because Pinterest is more my style.

12) Do you play any sports? 
Not really, I go kayaking a lot in the summer and used to do loads like football, cross-country, netball, fencing, judo, thai kick-boxing all sorts, but then in college I got super lazy and then in uni I just don't have the time and money! *sigh*

13) Do you prefer long or short hair? 
LONG! I've always wanted long thick luxurious hair and did have just that in year 7 but I cut it to just above shoulder length in year 8 and it just hasn't grown back properly, mainly because when I try to grow it out and ask for a 'trim' at the hairdressers it's never just a trim is it... I must say at the minute I have major hair envy over Zoe's hair from the blog/youtube Zoella!

14) What is your favourite quote? 
I don't have one, I'm not a huge user or reader of quotes.

15) What colour is your bedroom? 
Well the one at my parents is a light brown on two walls (it's looks good I swear!) and the other two are wallpapered with a floral vintage style print with light green, brown and pink tones. Mine and my boyfriends room is white and blue though, a bit more unisex!

16) Are you an outgoing person or a shy person? 
Shy mostly, but outgoing when I'm comfortable around you.

17) What is the last text message you sent? 
Just those three little words to my boyfriend that everyone wants to hear -  'I got pizza'

18) Have you ever won a competition? 
I won an art competition in like year 6 for an anti-bullying campaign, the whole year 6 class met the Wigan Warriors as the prize (they're an English Rugby Team for those who don't know) but I hated rugby and had no idea who anyone was. I don't think I've won anything else?

19) How many pillows do you sleep with?
Well we have like 10 million on our bed, some decorative but mostly functional but I only use 2 to sleep (and the boyfriend only uses one) so the rest end up all over the floor.

20) Who was the first person you talked to today? 
My boyfriend, he had to go uni so was up and getting ready at like 6am, he tried asking me where his work bag was, but as I didn't have uni today I was planning on staying asleep and only half woke up to say 'Have you tried asking Mickey?'... mickey is the family parrot.

21) How many hoodies do you own? 
Er... one I think, it's a University of Lincoln hoodie I got for free when I enrolled, but I don't really use it. Does this mean I'm bad at being female?

22) What should you be doing right now? 
My uni coursework! Though I have been working all day on it and this is being done in a break and whilst I'm eating dinner, so I think it's okay!

23) Can you keep your shoes clean?
Nope, I wear them until the fall apart with no maintenance, such a bad idea, I really need to look after my shoes better, would probably save me some money too!

24) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Not sure, I don't like my name, and never have only because Rebecca (Becky) is super common there was always loads of Rebeccas in my classes growing up so I felt so unoriginal, and always wanted a unique name. However I would never change it as it's the one my parents gave me.

25) Do you prefer dark, milk or white chocolate? 
White chocolate's my favourite but sometimes it can be a tad sickly and so then it's got to be milk chocolate. I can't stand dark chocolate though!

26) Open a book closest to you and turn to page 13. What does the first line say on that page?
'These various examples show that genetic differences between individuals can lead to differences in behaviour (mating behaviour, learning, singing, foraging and migration).' - As I'm doing uni work I'm surrounded by animal behaviour books.

27) Do you still watch Disney? 
Totally! They're all I watch when doing work, I even forced my boyfriend to watch Frozen with me (sorry!). I'm such a big kid when it comes to disney!

28) What do you usually eat for breakfast? 
I don't tend to eat breakfast during the week as I don't have time before uni, but at the weekend if it's just me eating I have natural yogurt and red berry granola, but if there's a few of us eating I make anything requested, pancakes, french toast, omelettes, scrambled eggs, you name it I'll make it!

29) Do you have any pets?
Yup! My two pups ozzy and amber! 

30) What is your favourite holiday? 
Christmas obviously! It's so festive and I love decorating and buying gifts for the ones I love and the food, THE FOOD! Though I don't like the after Christmas blues and stomach!

So as for tagging others... er... if you've read this I TAG YOU! Lazy I know but I need to get back to work now, sorry!!

Keep smiling!
