Question Time With Alicia
I headed over to twitter yesterday to see what kind of post I should do, as it’s too early to post my June favourites and I wasn’t sure what else to post and the response I received was to do a Q&A so here it is. All the questions answered I received on twitter so if there is anything else you would like to know go follow me and look out for my next post for a Q&A. If you there’s a question you have that I answered then this Get To Know Me Tag post might just answer some of those questions.
Sadly I cannot, although I’m hoping to start learning next summer! Studying in London means I don’t need to be able to drive and it would have been pointless paying out a lot of money for lessons and my tests only not to use it for long periods of time. However, I know exactly what car I want…or should I say cars (I’m a car fanatic okay, don’t judge) first of I want a Mini Cooper D 3-Door Hatch in navy and a Volkswagen Camper Van with a split screen in mint green. I’d also love to get a Porsche 911 but I doubt I’d drive it as much because it’d draw a lot of attention to myself, after all, how often do you see a female driving a sports car around the streets of London…not very is the answer.
Question 8: Hair. What colours have you dyed it? What’s your favourite way to style it?
I’ve dyed my hair many different colours, including a mixture of natural and unnatural colours. To begin with, I dyed my hair black (extreme I know) when I was thirteen, I then dyed it back to a caramel brown. After this, I decided I wanted dark hair again so I dyed it a dark brown, but it turned out darker than I hoped, the next stage was blonde dip dye which was quickly followed by purple ombre. I have also had dark red hair, lets not forget my blue hair, before dying my hair a gingery blonde and I’ve been growing that out since, but in the meantime I have dyed my hair pink (one of my all-time favourite colours I’ve had) and that has faded and left me with light auburn roots(my natural colour) and ashy blonde ends.
Question 9: What’s the last lie you told?
Erm, I’m not entirely sure, to be honest, I’m not a big fan of lies as they tend to hurt people more than you think, even if you’re lying to protect them it’ll always come back to bite you in the bum. Plus nobody wants to be lied to because they’re less likely to actually trust you in the future and that’s not something I want to be a victim of because it’s hard to earn someone’s trust back after you break it.
Question 10: What are your first thoughts when you wake up in the morning?
Normally something along the lines of “do I need to get up yet or can I stay laying in bed on my phone or go back to sleep?” or “I really need to pee.”
Probably wraps because I could change what was in it, and they can be extremely healthy because you can include protein (in my case Quorn) and vegetables to keep a healthy diet. Also, wraps are my go-to food anyway, since they don’t take a lot of effort and are very filling and satisfying.
Question 12: What are some of your good and bad habits?
- Tidying my room daily
- Eating five fruit/vegetables every day
- Drinking plenty of water
- Cheering someone up when they’re sad
- Forgetting to reply to texts/messages
- Binge watching Netflix shows instead of being productive
- Staying in PJs if I’m not going out
- Picking at dry skin
Question 13: Are you religious? Do you celebrate holidays?
I am actually religious, I’m Buddhist. I do however still celebrate Christmas as the rest of my family is Christian, except I celebrate it more for being surrounded by my family than receiving presents as I believe in the eightfold path and doing my best in the world to not only make my life better but those around me. I don’t celebrate any other holidays and I never really did, even before I converted from Christianity to Buddhism.
Question 14: Do you usually celebrate your birthday? What’s been your best birthday so far?
I go through stages where there are times when I want to celebrate my birthday and other times that I don’t, it all depends on how I am feeling and how good the previous year has been. My best birthday was my most recent which was my nineteenth, I celebrated it at uni and it’s the first one where I have actually just been able to have fun while being surrounded by my best friends. It was a week of celebrations which started with going to The Women In Black with my mum, followed by many nights out and also going out for dinner and ordering pizza. I’ve never felt more loved on my birthday than I did this year.
Question 15: Are you a fan of pick up lines? Which are your favourite?
I’m a huge fan of cheesy pickup lines, not that I’ve ever used one…I’m certainly not smooth enough to do that. my favourites include;
- Did you invent the aeroplane? Cause you seem Wright for me
- You look cold want to use me as a blanket?
- If I was a cat I’d spend all nine lives with you
- Did you read Dr. Seuss as a kid? Because of green eggs and…damn!
