Hey there, Sparklers 🙂
I thought I’d do something a bit different today. The “My first time” tag is going around the internet again, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and answer some of the fun questions!
1. Who was the first person you subscribed to on YouTube?
I think it was Christian Beadles. Back when I was in looooove with the baby-faced, innocent, 16 yr old Justin Bieber. I realised that he and Christian were friends and I found them both hilarious when they were together! His channel is inactive now, he hasn’t posted anything on it in like 4 years.. But here’s the link anyway! 😛
2. Your first Facebook profile picture?
These were my first two profile pictures, and let’s just say I’m absolutely mortified.
3. How old were you when you first fell in love?
I was 16 when I first fell in love. We stayed together until a month after my 18th birthday. Not only was he my first love, he was my first.. well, everything. And we were engaged for roughly a year, so it was a shitty time when we split.
4. What was your first alcoholic drink?
Blue WKD, of course. I think almost everyone’s first taste of alcohol is blue WKD. My neighbour was having a garden party in the summer, and there was a few people there. Both adults and kids, and I remember clearly that I was allowed to have a sip of blue WKD and I absolutely loved the taste, so much so that I kept asking for more. Even afterwards, I’d nag my mum for some at every opportunity. Not that she let me.
5. Who was your first best friend, and do you still talk?
My first best friend was Caitlin and we’re still best friends to this day. We’ve known each other for 8 years, and although we hardly see each other anymore through her going to uni etc, it hasn’t affected our friendship in the slightest. Whenever we do see each other, nothing ever changes and it always feels like we’ve never been apart.
6. What is the first thing you do in a morning?
Moan. Moan at the fact that I’ve woken up.. I love sleep A LOT. Like, I’d happily have a sleeping buddy as opposed to being in a relationship. Sleep is life for me. But once I’ve got over the disappointment of waking up, I check my phone.
7. What was the first concert you ever went to?
Justin Bieber. Like almost every other 15-year-old girl, I was OBSESSED with Justin Bieber. to me, that was the best night of my life for a looong time.
8. First broken bone?
I really had to think about this, as I’ve broken a lot of bones. (all toes, all fingers, both wrists multiple times, top of my foot, my nose…) But yeah, after a good think, I figured out that the first bone I broke was my big toe. I was in year 5 at school, and my mum and I were having a girly night in as my dad had gone out to play snooker with my uncle. I don’t remember exactly HOW it happened, but I rolled off the settee and when I landed, I bent my big toe right back the wrong way. It was stuck in that position so I obviously had to go straight to A&E, and I was in so much pain and shock that I had to get in the car with a sick bowl. It wasn’t fun. But, the next day at school, I was showing my injury off in the girls toilets. Everybody was definitely impressed.
9. First piercing?
My ears. I was 11 when I first got my ears pierced. I would have got them done sooner, but my dad wouldn’t let me. And trust me, there’s NO arguing with my dad. The only reason I got them pierced at 11 was because my mum somehow managed to persuade him. I only kept them in for 2-3 weeks before having to take them out and let them heal as they got infected. I got them re-done roughly a year later and the second time was definitely a lot more painful than the first.
10. First movie you remember seeing?
Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets. It was my cousins birthday, and the reason it sticks in my mind is because on the day she was really ill and kept throwing up every 5 minutes. As you guys know, from a young age I’ve had an issue with germs. The thought just grosses me out so I remember being absolutely disgusted when she asked for a sip of my drink. Oh hell no, girl.
The part where they go down into the chamber and fight the Basilisk really terrified me. I was cowering in my seat and everyone was laughing at me.
11. When was your first kiss?
My first “proper” kiss was when I was in primary school. Either year 5 or year 6. (Is that bad?) It was with my neighbour’s grandson.. Under my bed. Don’t ask me why, because I have no idea. I was a weird child.
12. My first word?
My first word was tortoise (I pronounced it like toitoise). I remember my mum and dad telling me on a few occasions that when they were trying to get me to talk, I had a favourite stuffed tortoise as well as other things like a tortoise cup etc. They used these to encourage me to talk, and that’s how my first word ended up being “toitoise” instead of “mama” or “dada”.
13. When was your first detention?
My first detention was when I was in year 9, so I would have been 13/14. It was my science teacher who gave me my first detention and it was because I forgot my homework. I was absolutely devastated because I honestly thought my parents where going to be so angry and disappointed in me, but they weren’t. It was basically just sitting on my own for 20 minutes at break time, so I’d pretty much got myself worked up over nothing. I never had a detention again after that (at least I don’t think I did), as I was a bit of a goody-two-shoes in school.
14. My first period?
I had my first period when I was 14. I was a pretty late developer, and I was SO ready to start as I was getting tired of being the only girl left who hadn’t. I’d be hoping and praying everyday that today would be the day. I thought that starting your period made you so grown up and mature. I woke up one morning, wearing black pyjama bottoms, and went into the front room and sat on the chair arm, chatting away to my parents. I began to realise my pants felt wet and I couldn’t understand why. I hadn’t wet myself, and I didn’t have any reason to be sweaty.. As I was trying to figure out what it could be, I started having these crippling stomach pains, so I went to the bathroom and had a look. My reaction was “Oh! I don’t want to be on my period anymore if it’s going to be like this!” and ended up getting upset, whereas just the day before I was pleading. They’re strange things, periods.
And so, that’s it. These are the questions that I chose out of the many questions there were to answer. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you would like to see the video (which I did before this post), you can watch it here:
Lots of love,
