34point5 – Random Facts About Me

Obviously, good ideas such as a ‘ X number of random facts about me’ blog only occur half way through the year, so I’ve decided to list 34point5 random facts about me because … well that’s my age (argh!!!) So here goes….jeez I hope I have 34 let alone .5 facts!

  1. I’m tall…I’m not exaggerating I’m 5ft11 – high street fashion is yet to discover my species and make decent clothes I can try on in store

  1. My family is Punjabi, as in Punjab, India – Google Map it it’s a real place (pic of me looking my most Punjabi self)

 

  1. I work as a full times Sales Manager (as of writing this post) by day for a software company (I’ve since handed in my notice and will be working for DesiBlitz in August!)

 

  1. I had an arranged marriage at 23 (ewwww I look gross!!!)

 

  1. I am now divorced (divorce cupcakes from 2011 for my Divorce Party, I should’ve trade marked the idea I swear I came up with it first!)

 

  1. I have social anxiety but I’ve been told I’m good at hiding it!

 

  1. I’m bilingual speak Punjabi, understand Hindi (that counts as two languages okay)

 

  1. I massively love Bollywood – specifically SRK (look at that face, from my favourite movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge)

 

  1. I’m weirdly obsessed with Diljit Dosanjh

 

  1. I’m the eldest of three – I have a younger sister and brother (and yes currently the only one left on the shelf!)

 

  1. I was the last of out of the three of us to graduate (in 2015 at age 32)

 

  1. I have a degree in Business Studies (I actually got a 2:2 and was made to feel bad about it at the time, it no longer matters to me, matters I achieved a full degree over 4 years with a full time job)

 

  1. I’m a chronic over thinker

 

  1. I struggle to keep on top of my body hair!! I’m 5ft11 gimme a break!!

 

  1. I’m the world’s biggest procrastinator (so you can imagine how hard this blogging thing is…no incentive such as money!!!!)

 

  1. I’m vegetarian – but I don’t like all vegetables (I’m a vegetable racist)

 

  1. I believe in God – so be nice to me or He’ll smite you (it’s obviously Zeus! The Disney version)

 

  1. I had no real friends until I was 23

 

  1. I have 23 first cousins (had to make a list to ensure I counted this properly)

 

  1. I have been to 16 countries to date (and counting!)

 

  1. I’ve never wanted to go to Glastonbury (the picture from the festival below sums up my worst nightmare!!)

  1. I’ve never had a burning desire to live in London

 

  1. I currently live in Scunthorpe – a northern town nobody knows (unless you’ve heard the audio tour at the Statue of Liberty!)

 

  1. I (currently) live with my parents

 

  1. I can’t do smoky eye makeup – I just look like I’ve been punched in both eyes (p.s. I love Tyra Banks but the below pic just sums me up!)

  1. I wear red lipstick daily, because why not

 

  1. I have size 8 feet

 

  1. I haven’t done an official count but I have around 50-60 pairs of shoes and wear AT most only 3 of them … EVER

 

  1. I have only ever dated 2 men

 

  1. I can’t swim or float – I’m like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory my bottom sinks

 

  1. In my head I think I look like Deepika Padukone – I have mirrors at home … they tell me I don’t, not even close (same right!?!)

  1. I can type 100 words a minute

 

  1. My hair is naturally wavy/curly/frizzy – Jennifer Aniston made it a trend to have perfectly straight hair in the 90s so I used to iron mine straight (I wish this hadn’t been a trend, straightening my hair is the bane of my life!!)

 

  1. I think I’m the most hilarious person I know – also I have this self-confidence that I’m really hot (some may call this arrogant, but why should I feel bad about loving who I am!?  (34.5 I start things then never f…)

Omg, this seemed like such a good idea in my head until I had to think of random facts about myself. They are in no logical order and I regret relating it to my age as the more numbers went along the more I was reminded how old I am!!! Good job I’m not 50, I’d never have got to the end of the list!!!!

NB…Hope you enjoyed the blog and got to know me a little, well more than you do already having read all my other blogs, obviously!

Have a good day xo
