Tag: the 11 things

Thank you so much Hannah from Pull Yourself Together for tagging me. I do love tags, they give a much more personal feel to a blog and you get to know the authors better. 

Here are the questions Hannah has asked me:

What was your last tweet?
Last night, "I miss composing so much". I absolutely love playing piano but I don't have a piano/keyboard at uni. Sometimes I practice on the upright piano in the Guild, but it's not a very good piano and pretty out of tune. I think I will buy an electric piano over Christmas and bring it back to Liverpool because I miss playing so much. It's a great way to relax and escape from your thoughts. 

What is your greatest achievement so far?
Probably getting a distinction in my grade eight piano exam. I was very stressed and low in mood at the time of the exam and I had also done my chemistry A level exam a few days ago. I have never been good at piano theory, just the performance, so I was really worried I wouldn't get enough points to get a distinction. I am also really proud that I went ahead with the double jaw surgery because it was the hardest thing I've been through. I really don't think you could pay me to go through that again.

If you were on Come Dine With Me, what would you make?
Hmmmm, probably a fig and cheese tart for starter, lamb shank for main and chocolate melty in the middle pudding for dessert. 

What is your middle name?
I have two: Eleanor and Mary. Eleanor was the name I was going to be called but my Dad didn't like it, and Mary is my grandmother's name. 

If you could be any animal, what would it be?
Labrador without hesitation! I used to have a black lab called Kiara, and she was absolutely gorgeous. 

Out of all the blogposts you've written, which is your favourite?
I don't think I have one! I like helping people get into medical school because I know that older medics helped me out so much, so it's probably my medical interview advice.

What one thing can you not leave the house without?
My iPhone and lipstick for sure. And keys, of course!

Any guilty pleasures?
Nutella. I ate 750g of it in a week recently. And coffee. I am completely addicted to coffee. Costa, not Starbucks though. 

Do you have a party trick?
Tying cherry stems in a knot with my tongue, does that count? Or just constantly hogging the party food. 

Which season is your favourite, and why?
Winter for sure. I absolutely love skiing, and my birthday is on 21st December, the same day as my Mum. I love wrapping up in thick woolly jumpers and scarves. 

What is your first memory as a child? 
I remember being in the swimming pool at Centre Parcs and seeing deer outside from our cabin thingy. I think I was around four at the time. 

Hope you enjoyed this post xx
