If You Really Knew Me...

Hello to all my new fabulous readers!! I have seen this post trend floating around the blogosphere and thought now would be the perfect time to give it a go! And continuing with my "honest blogging" promise I'm going to put it all out there... And I mean really put myself out there. Be nice!

If you really knew me...

- You would know I love to take stupid photos way more than serious posed ones.

-You would know I can be quite quiet until you get to know me, I can be quite shy.

- You would know I LOVE films and TV shows (although you should all know this) and if we like some of the same things I would happily spend hours discussing and quoting them!

- You would know I'm full of big dreams but am pessimistic about fulfilling them. I would love to be an actor or a film editor and am even studying for this at University but I don't believe it will ever happen. 

- You would know I taught myself to play guitar and can often be found mucking around and playing my favourite songs. I have even had a go at writing a few. I'm not the best singer though. Not bad, but not fantastic.

- You would know I am 20 years old and have never had a boyfriend. (this one took a lot of guts to admit) I have been on dates, had crushes, known about guys who have liked me. But never had the opportunity (or the courage) to be in a relationship. Sometimes this worries me, being alone forever type worry, and other times I feel like my time is coming, and its all for a reason.

- You would know I drink a lot of tea and coffee. And I eat way too much junk food.

- You would know I cry really easily. Any sad film, book or TV show. Whenever someone else cries. When I'm stressed. A lot!

- You would know I don't get angry. I get annoyed or I quietly sulk. But I never rage. Maybe I bottle it inside, I'm not sure, maybe I just accept things too easily.

- You would know I love the water, I grew up next to beaches and rivers and pools. I love swimming, but I'm self concious about wearing togs/bathing suits

- You would know I'm kind of a crazy cat lady, I adore my cat Milo, and pretty much all cats like me. I am a cat whisperer.

- You would know I love being adventurous and trying new things but I get terrified before I do them. But I do them anyway! Case and point, the New Zealand famous Zorb!

- You would know my Mum is a breast cancer survivor, one of my idols (the other being Audrey Hepburn) and one of the bravest people I know.

- You would know I am the epitome of a "poor student". I have less than $200 to my name.

- You would know that I am a fidget-er. I tend to do my hair or paint my nails while watching TV or I get too fidgety.

Well there we go. Hopefully my being completely honest didn't scare any of you away, and that you feel like you know me a little better. Its actually quite tough putting some of this out into the blog world so again, be nice :)

Loved reading this! Such a brave and fun post. I never had a "real" boyfriend until I met my husband and started dating him at 23. I'm super glad it worked out that way! ;-)

I saw you on Better Bloggers Network thing.

I loved reading about you! Good for you being brave, there's so many things I sometimes think to myself "Should you REALLY put that out there, Stephanie?" You inspired me to be a little bold.
