I was tagged by theladyintweed, thank you! :)

Rule one: Always post the rules.

Rule two: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write eleven new ones.

Rule three: Tag eleven people and link them to the post.

Rule four: Actually tell them you tagged them.

  1. If you could be any historical figure, who would you be? Hmm, good question! It took me ages to think of someone who wasn’t fucked up to some degree. I know this person is a fairly modern historical figure, but I think I’d choose to be Stanley Milgram- he created the ‘Milgram Experiment’. If you or anyone hasn’t heard of it, I’ll link info about it below! I was going to say Coco Chanel, but unfortunately she had an unpleasant childhood and went on to side with the Nazis in WWII, so that ruled her out. She was ballsy as fuck, though, which I do admire.
  2. If you could have lived at any historical court, which one would you have lived at? Hampton Court!
  3. If you could have your portrait painted by any artist, who would you choose? You, theladyintweed! :D (but also Manet, David Hockney and Derren Brown tbh, not that he’s actually an artist but he’s really talented).
  4. If you could have any mythical animal as a pet, which one would you pick? Probably a deer, but a deer like the ones in Fionn Mac Cumhail/Oisín stories.
  5. If you had to wear one style of historical clothing for the rest of your life, which would you choose? For the rest of my life?! Hmm… I think 1920s, on balance.
  6. If you could own any castle, palace, house, etc, which would you choose? For some reason I’ve always really liked Kilkenny Castle, so I think I’ll go with that. I’d love to own Hearst Castle and Chateau d’Or, too.
  7. If you could be a member of any royal family, which one would you join? Probably none of them, not gonna lie… At a push the Spanish royal family.
  8. If you could go back in history and kill one person, who would you kill? Either Hitler or Stalin- probably Hitler, though.
  9. If you could live in any place in Italy, where would you live? Random question! Milan, I think. Florence is closer to the coast though, so maybe Florence.
  10. A quote from your favourite historical figure? Love this question! This is a quote from good ol’ Coco that I’ve had on my bedroom wall for a couple of years:

    Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.

  11. If you could be any kind of mythical thing (eg ghost, fairy, vampire, etc) which would you be? I haven’t got the foggiest notion, so I took a quiz to see what mythical creature best fits my personality and I got ‘Siren’? Apparently they’re bad bitches who lure in sailors? I’m not complaining…

Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers (not back to me, I did it already). Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity! :3

awww, thank you my dear :))

1. My hair sometimes looks really nice.

2.I have long eyelashes and quite rare eye colour.

3.I don’t have any problems with maths and physics.

4.I’m really sensitive (I’m not sure if it’s a nice thing though)

5.Animals usually like me :))

I was re-tagged by ours-is-the-renly to do the eleven questions tag, thank you amigo :D I’m not gonna come up with 11 new questions though :P

1. What’s your favourite song, and why? My favourite song on the entire planet is Paparazzi by Lady Gaga, and to this very day I don’t quite know why. Something about the melody just really speaks to me and actually evokes an emotional response from me. The VMA performance of it has reduced me to tears so many times because it sounds so beautiful, especially the harmonies in the first rendition of the chorus. The slightly worrying thing, however, is that apparently we choose our ‘favourite’ songs based on how much we relate to the lyrics… So I’m not sure if I wanna know what having Paparazzi as my favourite song really says about me…

2. What was the happiest moment of your life? Hmm, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact moment… I’d say that meeting Derren Brown was one of the highlights of my life, definitely. He’s a role model to me, so being able to actually speak to him in person was unbelievable- almost as unbelievable as how talented he is! I’ve had a couple of really amazing moments from Irish Dancing too, and achieving things I never thought I’d achieve. I remember I got 6 first places at a feis (competition) once, and went on to get the highest grade in my dancing class for the grade exams that year, meaning I got the student of the year award. That was only my second year dancing, so at the time I felt euphoric. There’s so many other little moments here and there that mean a lot to me too, but they’re for another post :P Generally speaking though, the happiest moments of my life all have something to do with achievement.

3. What do you like most about yourself? Again, it’s hard to pick just one thing (because I’m so great, you know? Ah no, I’m not that great at all). I guess one of the things I like about myself is my ability to detach from anything and everything. Whether it be trying to analyse W.B. Yeats’ poetry, dealing with an argument with a friend, or coping with difficult family situations, my ability to take a step back and view things objectively has served me very well in life. People tend to admire my ability to not make a fuss/ my resilience, but I really think this has more to do with my ability to view things through a more objective lens when needed.

4. What habit, either in yourself or other people, annoys you the most? Oh God, I could probably write an entire saga on habits I despise in myself and others. A habit that I’ve developed lately that I’m doing my best to get rid of is deliberately making sure that I don’t look like I’m staring at something or someone in particular, so I look down or all around me instead. Its gotten to the point where even when I’m at home I’ll end up deliberately looking around the room or to the side at regular intervals so as not to seem like I’m staring at anything. So weird.

5. What story has affected you the most? I couldn’t think of any story, fiction or non-fiction, that has affected me in the way I live my life or anything… But the ‘House of Night’ book series had quite an impact on me in the sense that they felt extremely realistic, so much so that for a day or two I couldn’t snap out of this weird mindset where I was convinced I was the main character from the series. I even began having dreams where I was being called by the main character’s name! So I guess that story had a very literal effect on me.

6. What did you want to be when you were a kid? First a dancer, then a writer, then a singer, then an animator, then a doctor, then a child psychologist, then a paediatrician, then back to a doctor.

7. Would you describe yourself as an optimist, a pessimist, or neither? I’d say I’m a realist with varying levels of optimism and pessimism. (<—- world’s most non-committal answer)

8. What is/was your favourite subject in school? All through primary school English, Irish and Art were my favourites, but most of the time in secondary school my favourites were Irish and French.

9. Who do you admire most in the world (alive or dead)? Once again, I can’t edit it down to a single person! So I’m just gonna list some people I admire instead; Lady Gaga, Derren Brown, Joan Rivers, suffragettes in general and Ellen De Generes.

10. What’s your favourite food? Lasagne, pizza or sorbet. Or anything minty.  

11. If you could only do one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?  Without meaning to sound super creepy, I’d be more than happy to spend the rest of my life analysing other people. I adore it more than anything & it’s one of the only things that can hold my interest for hours, if not days, on end.

So there’s that! bornthiswayxx I’ll be answering your questions next! :D

Aw, thank you so much. That made me happy. (:

I’ll try to think of five:

- I’m learning the lyrics to ‘(Not) getting married today’ from Company and doing quite good so far :D
- Once I actually get myself to write something it sometimes turns out quite well
- I’m quite good at English, I hope? :D
- I watched the entire 30 rock series in two/three days? (if that doesn’t say sth about me then idk)
- I can be very passionate

thank youuuuu <333
