50 facts about me

In my whole one year of having this blog, I've never actually done a post or tag specifically about me, would you believe it? So here it is, my first 50 facts about me. Let's start off with the basics...
  1. My full name is Harley Michelle Wild 
  2. My birthday is the 14th October 1995 and I'm 18 years old
  3. I'm currently studying A Levels in History, English Literature and Media and hope to go to the University of Leeds in September to study English Literature and History
  4. I have two twin sisters who I live with, India and Caitlin who are the year below me, as well as my Mum, stepdad Phil and rabbit Miffy, there's my step brother Kyle too but he lives with his Mum
  5. There's also my Dad, step mum Olya and half sister Maya who I don't live with and don't really see too often
  6. My parents split up when I was about 6 and since my Dad got married we haven't had much of a relationship
  7. I've moved houses twice in my life, and the houses I've lived in are all a street apart
  8. I only have one kidney, one basically shrunk to the size of a peanut when I was born, but my other one grew to adult size when I was younger so it's never been a problem (I'm not supposed to drink much or have a lot of salt, oops)
  9. I moved primary schools when I was in year 5 and it was so scary
  10. I'm not naturally this blonde, I dye it, my natural colour is kind of a mousy brown colour
  11. I had braces from year 10-11 and I'm so glad I did because I love my teeth now
  12. I want to be a journalist when I'm older, my dream is to work for a women's fashion magazine, and my absolute dream is to work in New York for Vogue (I mean can you even imagine?!) I'd be like the girl off Confessions of a Shopaholic or the one off 13 going on 30!
  13. I have a weird phobia of thick cheese and thick butter, I seriously can't eat either, I'm also really scared of moths (let's not even go there), spiders (obviously), any other insect really, and blood
  14. If you hadn't noticed, English and History are my favourite subjects
  15. I got 4 A*'s and 7 A's at GCSE
  16. My eyes don't even really have a colour, they're a mix between blue, green and grey, and as weird as it sounds they kind of change depending on the weather
  17. I bite my nails (I know, it's my worst habit and I need to stop but I just can't)
  18. Primark is my absolute weakness, every time I go in I find something I need to buy, it will be the death of me
  19. My bed is my most favourite thing in the entire world, it's a huge double bed with fairy lights AND an electric blanket?!?! Don't act like you're not jealous
  20. My music taste really varies, I love The Smiths, The Cribs, The Courteeners, The Vaccines etc, then I love more girly things like Marina, Lana and Lorde and I can't help but love the cheesy chart stuff they play when you go out
  21. I'm not really a huge fan of films, I never sit by myself and watch one unless I'm in a specific mood, but my favourites include Despicable Me, 500 Days of Summer, Submarine, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Frozen, and Tangled (basically anything Disney I'll love).
  22. I still sleep with a teddy what
  23. Collared shirts and jumpers are my thing and I have to really stop myself from buying anything with a collar
  24. You may have noticed, but I NEVER wear jeans, I mean never
  25. I love to sing and I used to perform publicly quite often when I was at school and upload Youtube videos etc, now, not so much
  26. I'm technically half Irish, no wonder I'm so pale and have so many freckles
  27. My laugh is quite possibly the most annoying thing you've ever heard in your life
  28. I hardly ever wear jewellery (apart from my Marc Jacobs watch), you'll rarely see me wearing rings, bracelets or necklaces
  29. I hardly do anything to my hair in the day because I'm too lazy, I just wash it and go to sleep with a towel on my pillow, wake up in the morning and voila
  30. I have quite good skin and rarely get spots which is probably my favourite part about myself
  31. I have my nose pierced which I'm sure you've already seen
  32. I play netball twice a week as part of a team, and we're called All Stars
  33. I tried to teach myself how to play guitar in the summer after year 11 and completely and utterly failed, looks like I'll never be Taylor Swift god damn it
  34. Over the past year I've really got into make up and beauty, before I'd never even touched eyeshadow or attempted contouring, and now I'm completely obsessed with beauty blogs and youtubers
  35. I'd love to start my own Youtube channel, if only I had a good camera, tripod and an iMac to edit with... Maybe one day
  36. I've had three jobs since I was 14, firstly I worked in a coffee shop called Barista's for about 4 months over the Christmas period, then Anderson's, another coffee shop where I worked for just over a year, and then McDonald's (woo), and I'll have worked there for a year in May which is crazayyyy
  37. My favourite colour is burgundy, and I'm always wearing it, my other favourite colours to wear are navy, green and black
  38. I'm probably the worst person at saving ever, I blow all of my money on clothes and then I have nothing to wear, it's ridiculous
  39. One of my cousin's lives in London (which you'll already know) and another in Paris, I've never been to Paris before and am hoping to go over this year, would be amazing!
  40. I'm also planning on going on holiday with my friends to Magaluf as well as going to my friend's apartment in Spain, and visiting London a few more times, it's going to be a good year!
  41. I have huge hands and feet, I'm a size 7-8 it's cray cray (but also good because in the sales there's always my size left yay)
  42. I only own about three pairs of heels, I never buy them
  43. I don't really watch a huge amount of TV, but the programmes I watch religiously are MIC, 90210, Mr Selfridge, and The Paradise, I love programmes set in the 20's!
  44. I write really weirdly and hold my pen weird, you wouldn't understand unless you saw but yeah, everyone takes the piss out of me for it which is lovely, but who teaches you how to hold a pen god damn it?!
  45. My favourite food is pasta, and my absolute favourite is pasta in a creamy white wine or cheesy sauce with mushrooms and chicken, absolutely perfect!
  46. When I was younger we had loads of different pets to substitute not having a dog, so we had hamsters, fish, budgies, rabbits and guinea pigs. At one point, we had 9 guinea pigs. YEP, NINE. We started off with two, and they told us they were both girls, boy were they wrong...
  47. I'm like obsessed with pyjamas and my dressing gown, as soon as I come home from a day out I get straight into them, so damn cosy
  48. I used to be a huge Twilight obsessive, I've read all of the books at least 6 times, and at one point I had 29 posters of Robert Pattinson in my room. TWENTY NINE. He is so hot though, and still now he's my favourite <3333 love you RPatz (did anyone else get that Robsessed DVD? No? Me neither...)
  49. I can quote Mean Girls basically word for word, then again, is there any girl that can't?
  50. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and something doesn't happen because something else is just around the corner :)
Well done if you got this far! That was a LOT of facts, I'm surprised I managed to fill 50, wow you must have got bored.. In other news, I received my final university offer yesterday, I now have 5/5, how exciting! (I really wasn't expecting an offer from the university of Manchester so I am over the moon!)
