TELL US SOMETHING NEW

I’m attempting BEDM which means I have to Blog Everyday In May (link). As I’m sure a lot of you are laughing at this absurd suggestion as I post pretty irregularly, I’m going to prove you wrong!

For the first day of May I have to tell you something new so I searched around and found a list of questions (link) and I’m going to answer some of them.

What’s a great book you’ve read recently?
Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon

Which TV family is most like your own?
Not TV but the family in Brave. As in Merida and her triplet brothers.

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
I think Washington, though Dublin was pretty cool.

What’s the best part about having siblings?
I’m never alone and always have someone to talk to. It’s also really cool that I’m the oldest because I feel like a proud parent when one of them do something good.

What trait do you like the most about yourself?
My ability to be quite level headed when it comes to other people’s problems. When they’re my own I freak out but I’m quite good at advice I think. I give honest, blunt advice that most people don’t want to hear but probably need to.

Do you ever talk to yourself? When and what do you say?
I regularly give myself very stereotypically movie-like pep talks in the mirror. The kind of “You can do it, believe in yourself, you’re just as good as everyone else.” kind of pep talks. I also sing a lot, if that counts?

Bonus: I’m a vegetarian! I have been since November last year. Quite a few of my friends are vegetarians and I always totally understood why – animal rights and we shouldn’t eat them and stuff but it wasn’t until August last year that it really clicked. I went to a farm in Clacton and fell in love with goats. Then realised that I wouldn’t ever eat a goat so why should I feel any different towards other animals? All I could think about after that was the animal every time I ate meat but I didn’t think my diet would allow for vegetarianism. I asked Jasmin what kinds of things she ate and then finally made my decision in November. The actual day I decided was when I had stuffed my face with McDonalds and didn’t even enjoy it…but the animals were killed for that meat anyway. It just clicked there and then that I couldn’t eat animals anymore so have been vegetarian ever since. It actually isn’t that difficult for me as I only really ate chicken so quorn alternatives are perfect for me. In fact I think my diet has improved since my no-meat decision as I’m more aware of what I’m putting in my body now.

Be back tomorrow!

Love as always,
Abi x

    1. Hello!
      Genuinely one of my favourite YA books I’ve ever read! Love that the main character is a young black girl and the book is written by a black woman. I usually find reading to be quite a personal thing to do but I’ve been recommending this book to everyone I know!
      Abigail!
