About Me

I'm a natural-born Slytherin with the odd Hufflepuff tendency.

I have quite a large collection of notebooks that I've never written a single word in.

I own 350 books, 200 DVDs and over 50 nail polishes, without a single duplicate in any of those categories.

I like numbers and keeping lists of things, as evidenced by the previous statement.

I've always preferred villains to heroes. Heroes are boring.

I find it nearly impossible to start a series of books and not complete it, even if I hate it. Actually, I find it nearly impossible to stop reading a book once I've started it, even if I think it's the worst thing I've ever read. This is something I'm trying to work on.

I'm a massively picky eater, for which I blame my parents entirely, and find eating out with non-family members to be a very distressing experience. I do, however, love to eat out. And not just because I hate to cook. Also, pizza should be a major food group all on its own.

I've had a mild vampire obsession since I was about six years old and it is a constant struggle not to work them into every single conversation I have. Trust me, people get sick of that pretty damn quickly.

Every statement so far has started with some variation of "I" and that bugs me.

I often forget that what is on the internet is public. I often forget that the people I interact with on Twitter are not in fact my friends and do not in fact know me. I also often forget that tone does not come across well on Twitter and frequently find myself apologising for things and telling myself to be more careful in the future.

I am hyper-critical of most things and this is why I rarely share my writing with anyone else - because I'm afraid they'll be as honest as I would be about someone else. This is something else I'm working on.

I'm not good with compliments - either giving them or receiving them.

I always read the small print on adverts. I find it more interesting than the actual adverts. On a related note, Ofcom's websites is bookmarked on my laptop, although I've never actually made a complaint to them.

I'm pretty much terrified of commenting on other people's blogs/facebook posts/twitter feeds. I'm forever typing out responses and then deleting them before I send them, and end up not saying anything at all.

I haven't been on holiday for at least seven years now, and really, that's just too long for anyone to not go on holiday. 

I'm a middle child so I crave and loathe attention equally. Make of that what you will.
