25 Mad Facts About Me

I've seen this post floating around recently and I've really been enjoying reading other people's. The only logical thing for me to do is to do this post myself, and share 25 facts about me with you all. :) 

I've done posts like this over the years (I'm a Blogger dinosaur) so I'll try my best not to repeat myself. ^_^

  1. I collect cinema tickets and stick them to the loft door in my bedroom in a kinda tiled pattern. I've been collecting them since the end of 2011; I have 15 right now. :)
  2. It's rare for me to cry at films. The only films I have properly cried during are Spirited Away, The Boy In Striped Pyjamas, The Notebook, Remember Me and The Impossible. 
  3. I've lived in the same house for my whole life, and have always had the same bedroom.
  4. I have a love/hate relationship with musicals...I love Westside Story, Annie and (don't judge me) High School Musical but in general, if a musical comes on TV I'll skip past it.
  5. I'm subscribed to 76 Youtube channels.
  6. My favourite flowers are white tulips. This definitely has nothing to do with Alaska Young...
  7. I shared a room with my sister until I was 11.
  8. I secretly love One Direction.
  9. The wall behind my bed is filled with pictures, cards, postcards, certificates, photos, lists, notes, party invitations and theatre tickets. I call it my 'Wall of Stuff' and it shows how I'm way too sentimental. ;)
  10. I'm a perfectionist and I'm way too hard on myself. I really am my own worst enemy...
  11. My five favourite books (ever) are The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky; Starter For Ten by David Nicholls and The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns and Looking For Alaska, all by John Green.
  12. When asked what my style is I say "vintage librarian-hipster". It's easier than explaining that I really can't pin-point my style. :P
  13. I've been blogging since August 2007, have always used this blog and have never taken a break, but I've deleted my old posts to avoid embarrassment. ;D
  14. I'm a Danosaur, Phillion, Unicorn Warrior, Hopeful, Whovian, Potterhead, Nerdfighter and proud member of the Nermie Army. 
  15. I wear a green 'This Star Won't Go Out' wristband to support the charity and their amazing work for the families of children and teenagers suffering from cancer. I've worn the wristband since the 3rd of April 2012 and have never taken it off.
  16. I'm only 5 foot 2. I like to think of it as being "vertically challenged".
  17. I name my instruments...my electric piano is called Fletcher, my ukulele is called Gus, my guitar is called Hazel and my piano is called Margo. ^___^
  18. I drink a lot of tea. By a lot I mean alot, like 5 or 6 cups a day.
  19. I'm addicted to Pretty Little Liars! I'm quite far behind (the beginning of series 2, I think) and I'm only getting one episode a day but I'm in love with it. I'm in love with Aria, Hannah, Spencer and Emily, and Ohmygawd am I in love with Ezra Fitz. O_O
  20. I got my first Ipod for my 11th birthday in 2008 (08/08/08), named her Ionapod (terrible, I know) and have loved her ever since. She's never failed me. ^_^
  21. I went through a 2-year-long phase of only ever wearing Converse. It got to the stage where I literally couldn't walk in any other type of shoe (apart from my scabby old ankle boots), but at the end of 2012 my feet started to go numb whenever I wore my beloved Converse, so I decided that we needed to take a break. Hopefully they'll understand, and won't be angry at me for my decision...It was for the best, dear Converse. :') 
  22. I make a playlist on my Ipod at the beginning of every month, with 30 songs that I love and feel like suit the month ahead.  It's literally all I listen to during that month.
  23. I have questionable taste when it comes to fashion. My motto is "why have something plain when you can have something patterned?", I love paisley and most of my tops have collars.
  24. The most listened to song on my Itunes is Coffee Shop Soundtrack by All Time Low. Not because it's an amazing song that I listen to non-stop, but because I accidentally left it on repeat for a full day....oooops... :P
  25. My name's Catriona. Now let's see who can pronounce it right. ;D
Continuing on from point 5, I'm thinking about doing a post all about Youtube (and my obsession...), with a list of all 76 channels I'm subscribed to. What do you think?

Lots of love, Cat
xxx

  3. Im obsessed with Pretty Little Liars too; and Ezra Fitz is most definately very easy on the eyes! Aria's my favourite, although i do love them all!
    Im up to season 3 and it's still just as good as before, i kind of envy that you've still got loads to watch because you've got some of the really juicy storylines to come yet!

    1. I can't wait for future episodes! Caleb's one of my favourite characters, but I can't help but feel that something bad's going to happen to him or he's going to get pulled in. :/ I'll give The Vampire Diaries a go! :) xx

    1. Yes!! You're the first person to get it right. ;D
      You could call your piano Fitz? It's a cute name but it helps that it's Ezra's second name. :P xx

  12. Ka-tree-na?

    I have a friend whose name is spelled exactly the same as yours but it's pronounced Katrina. These 25 things lists, certainly bring insight into personalities. It's great, you seem interesting. The movies that you cry during, are pretty much on the list of the many movies I have cried watching. HAHA

    1. Yep! ^_^
      It takes a lot to make me cry at a movie, but those ones were devastating. :'O xx
