One of my fave gals on the internet Meg aka Megzmoz aka Mystic Mogwai suggested joining girl forces for a collaboration post and I LEAPED at the chance. Although we’ve not known each other all that long, we want to work on a few blog related things together this year, so what better way to get the ball rolling than a little 10 question Q&A!? Meg’s post features her answers to my questions and you can find that HERE.
1. Why do you blog?
I started my own little corner of the Internet mainly because I wanted to write. I’ve always loved reading and writing and every now and again I have a tiny niggle of regret that I didn’t do my degree in literature. I wanted somewhere I could come to write about whatever suits my strange little heart and I’ve always been a lover of the internet, so blogging seemed to be the way forward.
2. What was one experience that changed the way you live?
Nothing earth shattering has ever happened to me. No one would want to write a book or make a TV show about my life, it’s pretty normal. I went to school, I went to college, I went to university and now I work in retail. Standard. But collectively all of these things have shaped the way I live. They all changed my life in different ways because they helped me change and grow as a person. I know that’s a pretty boring answer and probably a little cheesy, but true and we’re here to be truthful!
3. What’s your favourite joke?
My dad used to tell this super long winded and ridiculous joke about a guy and a pig… I won’t go into the details. We were also walking out of Specsavers the other week when I saw some Star Wars specs by the door. I showed them to my dad who said “you can only buy those if you have a certain kind of problem…JEDI. JED. EYE”. King of dad jokes.
4. Where’s your favourite place in Hull?
When you get to the end of Scale Lane and you’re at the junction to turn onto High Street and you stand in front of The Lion and Key and you can see the new bridge and the little bit of garden with the benches. That’s my favourite, I think. It’s right next to my old flat and reminds me of uni, in a good way.
5. Which Disney character (non-princess) do you relate to the most?
Some days I relate to Sadness more than I would ever like to admit. Most days I relate to Daisy Duck, pure sass.
6. If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Is it too cliche for me to talk about peace? There are SO many things, but if I were to do a word bubble, the central word would definitely be peace.
7. What is your favourite ‘Friends’ episode?
There are a few episodes that always make me say “oh this one’s my favourite” when it comes on! But the ones I know absolutely word for word and always make me lol are ‘The One With the Embryos’ where the girls lose the apartment to the boys and ‘The One With the Jellyfish’ where Ross and Rachel argue over the 36 page letter. YOU FELL ASLEEP!?
8. Do you have a party trick?
I can rap pretty well. Especially if you’re into rap within musical theatre… *cough* the whole of Hamilton *cough*.
9. If you could swap lives with one person for a day, who would it be?
Currently I would pick my friend Abi who’s doing her Cultural Representative Programme in Epcot, Walt Disney World, to spend a day working in the Disney bubble just to see what that would be like.
10. If you had a genie, what would your three wishes be?
- An endless supply of Lush products.
- An endless supply of ready salted crisps.
- A dream wedding.
