5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I'm quite a private person. I love getting to know people and talking about all manner of subjects but I rarely offer up information about myself unless I am directly asked a question. I don't know why, I can just be a reserved person when it comes to sharing things about my life or my past.  With this in mind, I have seen bloggers doing these types of posts recently and thought it would be a great way for you to get to know me a little better...

1. I Don't Drink
When I was at University I went out or had drinks multiple times a week, it was awesome! Then I got my first job and I slowed down a a lot, reserving my wild ways for the weekend. Until I had one night where I over did it, to a point where I barely remember anything and I had a 2 day hangover. After that I couldn't stomach the smell of alcohol. That was 6 years ago. I still go out, I have a good time and still have the odd glass of wine or a cider but I never get the urge to drink a lot. It wasn't a conscious decision, my body just decided enough was enough. There are many people who find it hard to understand that I don't drink but it's not really a big deal for me. 

2. I'm Partially Sighted
A few years ago I lost my eye sight in my left eye. It came out of nowhere and was pretty damn scary. My sight went pitch black, I could see nothing out of my left eye. My optic nerve had swelled and blocked the vision from my eye to my brain. However, my optic nerve swelled so quickly that it caused permanent damage which left me with only 25% vision in that eye. It was painful to move my eye and actually made me quite disorientated and really dizzy. Now, it's like looking out of a frosted window. I can see things are there but I can't see what they are. I've got used to it now and it almost feels normal to me. I do miss having normal vision but at least I still have another eye that still works! *Touches wood*

3. I was Tattoo'd by Darren Brass at Miami Ink
I have 4 tattoos. My first is a cluster of stars I had done when I was 18, my second is a butterfly and my third is lettering between my shoulders which I had both done at 19. My fourth is my most precious. I was a big fan of Miami Ink and I was obsessed with the artwork the team came up with. I promised myself if I was ever lucky enough to go to Miami, I would get a tattoo. In 2016 I finally arrived in Miami with my bestie for a girls trip and sat down in Darren Brass' chair. He gave me a Scorpion on my lower back and it is honestly my favourite tattoo. My only regret is that I didn't get any pictures with him or while he was working on me but also that I was seconds away from meeting Ami James, I literally missed him by a minute!

4. I'm An Only Child
I grew up as an only child in a single parent household however I always had a lot of cousins around so I was never really alone. Spending time alone is something I relish, I am very much an introverted extrovert and I need to have some quiet time to recharge my batteries after spending time with people!

5. I Have Mostly Worked In Manufacturing
I have had a lot of jobs over the years but I found my niche in the manufacturing industry. Predominantly a male orientated environment, manufacturing is actually really fun. I have driven forklifts, cherry pickers and I have literally built products myself. Throughout this my main role has always been marketing/sales based but quite often its more fun playing with the products to better understand how to promote them. At this moment I am working for a company where I am the only female! 

There you have it, 5 things that you may not have known about me!
