Well, probably don't care about.
Yes, 10 strange things about me that most of you probably don't know and which will most likely make
recoil just a teensy bit. What with knowing me in real life, and all.

- go give her some love, she really is a lovely person
1) I used to bite my nails a lot, but I finally managed to beat the habit by using nail varnish and a fair bit of will power. I'm also fairly flexible due to biting my toenails on a regular basis.
2) I'm currently puzzling over a way to fix the hilt of my cardboard-and-duct-tape sword for a cosplay in September. The problem is that I used the top of a plastic bottle to make the fancy hand protector, and it doesn't have enough strength to stay stuck down to the rest of it. I'll sort something out, but lord knows what that will be.
3) I have 3 alternative body alterations - an ear stretcher in my left ear, a labret stud, and an industrial bar across the top of my right ear. I have plans for a nose piercing and a few more in my ears, and I'm also getting my first tattoo on Saturday - a celtic butterfly on my ankle.
4) It's very rare when I can go to sleep in any position and not feel burning nausea in my throat. It's not an about-to-throw-up feeling, but it is something I've suffered from since a very early age. The only way to get to sleep is to lie on my front, and some nights even that doesn't work.
5) When I was in Year 9, I suffered from a very painful knee condition. When I went to the doctors about it, I was told that I had a muscle imbalance because my kneecaps are too small. Apparently, this happens a fair bit.
6) Despite being British and growing up with Harry Potter as a large part of my childhood, I was completely disenchanted with the franchise after watching the 4th movie and reading the 6th book. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the second book ever I could never bring myself to finish. The first was Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
7) There is a roundabout in my town which I do not like in the slightest. As a roundabout, it's fairly reasonable on most days. However, I failed my first driving test there by nearly crashing within the first 2 minutes of starting, and I also had my first near-crash there, which caused me to take off my green P-plates in a panic - well, they could have identified me by them, instead of by the fact I drive a car with a very uncommon make and brand.
8) Every Life Should Have 9 Cats - so far, mine has had 11. In order, they were called Ebony, Tabitha, Ross, Smudge, Sukie, Bonnie, Clyde, Zoe, Chloe, Rosie and Poppy. To date, 4 died of illness or injury, 2 were run over, 2 ran away, and I'm currently living with Bonnie, Clyde and Poppy.
9) I would love to go on holiday in the Carribean, USA or Canada. However, every holiday I've been on, I've gone with my Dad, and he does not do well with flying. 4 hours is his limit, which made the one time we flew to Newfoundland in Canada to go to my uncle's wedding a very stressful trip for him.
10) Doing Psychology at A-level and beyond is both a blessing and a curse. On the one side, it gives you an interesting insight into how the world operates and why people do as they do - but on the other hand, you will spend quite some time second-guessing every decision you make. This is particularly aggravating when you have never really fancied anyone, and think you may have taken a shine to someone.
It took me a long time to think of things to put coming towards the end of this journal, and hopefully it doesn't sound like a "Woe is me" cop-out of any sort. I love reading this sort of journal when artists on here whom I admire post them up - hopefully, this is just as interesting an insight into who I am as those are for other people. If that made any sense at all.
