25 Facts About Me

Hello everyone! Where the bloody hell have I been? I won't apologise because, lets face it, there aren't going to be many of you who have cried yourself to sleep over my absence. f you did, I'm sorry and I hope that we can work things out. It seems I took an unplanned blogging hiatus due to two things. Firstly, deadline hell. Secondly, illness hell. Ah, life isn't worth living if you aren't immobile and in at least an ounce of pain, that's what I always say! I'm taking a week long break from university next week (Oh hai lecturers!) in order to get myself better and have people fuss over me so I'll have more time to blog and come out from under the rock that I've been dwelling under! As I seem to have gained a few new readers of late, I thought I'd join everyone and their cat and write a 50 random facts about me post. Sometimes I'm so original that it actually hurts! I hope you learn something new and exciting about me! Disclaimer: you probably won't...don't get your hopes up.
