Was tagged in this by @paintedghost so here goes:
1. I’m a mother at 20
2. I dropped out of uni to have my baby, but don’t regret it for a second
3. When I was 18 I had my hair all cut off, after splitting up from a 3 year relationship. It’s one the most liberating things I’ve done.
4. My favourite food is lasagne. Especially my mum’s lasagne.
5. I’m 6 feet tall.
6. I used to hang out with boys at school because the girls were all bitchy and
I fell out with most of them.
7. The halls I lived in during uni were slated for being scummy but I met my closest friends there.
8. I tend to snort when I laugh
9. When I was little I wanted to be a Formula 1 driver and rename myself Charlotte Schumacher.
10. My favourite Disney princess is Ariel.
11. I hate olives.
12. I’ve been able to play piano since I was 7.
13. I was inspired to play the piano after watching a Garfield episode, in which an owner in a previous life played piano for him.
14. I have low self esteem
15. But my fiancée always makes me feel good when I’m at my lowest
16. My favourite movie is Amelie
17. My dream is to earn enough to work for myself
18. I’m generally optimistic about everything
19. Even though not regretting leaving my course, I still want a degree, as it’s something I promised myself I’d get in life.
20. The thought of my grandad being angry/disappointed/upset fills me with dread. Ask @paintedghost she used him as a threat when I was a kid (;

Goodbye long #hair. Hellooo graduated bob. I always feel more comfortable with shorter hair, and the hairdresser did an amazing job
#jamesandthegiantpeach haven’t watched this in so many years. #smallboy is enjoying it too. And Disney’s A Hunchback of Notre Dame is on after. Yay!
Part 1 of 3 drawings I’m doing for my little brother. This is only a rough sketch. #adventuretime #TLM #ink #sketch #instapic
Treated myself to a new t-shirt today, for not landing on my backside at skating. #cyborg #stitch #t-shirt
