Wasn’t my Blogging Q&A fun! I had so much fun answering all of your questions that I wanted to do a more personal one! So without further ado, it’s time to find out more about me, Hayley Beth!
What do you like to do in your free time?
Between working full-time and trying to make my blogging dream a reality I don’t have much free time. But when I do take a break from it all I just like to spend time with my friends. They are like my family now and are my biggest supporters, without them, I wouldn’t be writing this right now.
If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Ooh, this is a hard one. I think it would have to be pizza so long as I could change the toppings, that way I can still eat lots of different foods!
Whats the best and worst present you’ve ever received?
I think the best present wouldn’t actually be a present. This year I turned 21 and my best friend treated me like an absolute princess. He took me for what I thought was a fantastic meal in Cheltenham and then we watched a brilliant anime film. To me, the memories we made over those days were the best present anyone could ever buy me. And the worst present would be everything my grandma has ever bought me for Christmas. Every year it is an awful scarf or an interesting purse. They often end up in the charity shop as they just aren’t very me and I don’t have the heart to tell her I don’t like them (luckily she doesn’t understand how to use the internet!)
Where is my happy place?
I don’t have a specific place that I like to go but when I want to sit and reflect I like to sit on a hill looking over Gloucestershire and I just take in the beauty of where I live.
What is something you are proud of yourself for?
I think I would have to say the fact I have survived. I left home when I was just 18 and moved into a house that closely resembled a crack den in appearance. In that time I have escaped an abusive relationship and although it has taken till now (I’m now 21) I finally feel as though I am getting my strength back. Point proved by the fact this year I fell in love, completely and unconditionally. Something I never thought I would be capable of doing again.
What’s the hardest lesson you have had to learn?
That I can’t rely on others for my happiness. I have to make my own happiness or I will never be completely happy. This is something, my housemate Fran has been trying to instil in me these last few months and I think now I am finally starting to understand. Yes, people will contribute to my happiness but at the end of the day, it is up to me if I want to lead a happy life or a miserable one.
What cheers you up when you’re down?
I do like a good cuddle when I am feeling down but if I can’t get a cuddle I would have to say going for a drink at the Regal with one of my close friends Bethan. She always helps me see things straight and helps take my mind off of whatever was getting me down while we get a little tipsy on fruit cider!
How old were you when you had your first kiss?
I was 15, it was raining and his name was Dom.
If you could choose one song to represent you, what would it be?
Right now at this point in my life, I think it would be Runaway by The Corrs. It is quite an old one but I think it just explains everything I feel at the moment.
This has been great to write, with memories remembered and tears shed I hope this opens the door to me more! I would love to do another question and answer post again! Comment with any other questions you would like me to answer!!
