The 30 Day Challenge (with a twist)

I recently found this 30 Day Challenge on Tumblr and I wanted to do it…but I didn’t want to spam you all with 30 days worth of constant blog posts! So instead I will do this challenge everyday, but I will post the answers only once a week. I will answer 8 questions this week, 8 questions next week, 7 questions for the 3rd week then 7 questions for the final week.

So here are my first set of answers!

Day 01 – Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is.

My current relationship, as you probably all guessed, is with my Asian boyfriend from Hong Kong. He will soon be living with me at my parents house (he is now living with me, I wrote this before he was) while we look for good jobs so that we can rent a flat together. He is my best friend, my first boyfriend and hopefully my last boyfriend.


Ughh, I’m becoming cutesy and pathetic. I hate myself.

Day 02 – Where you’d like to be in 10 years.

Married and thinking about having children! Notice that I didn’t say “Married with children”. I don’t want to have children really late in life but I don’t want them early either. I want as much fun as I can before settling down.

Day 03 – Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Drugs are bad, I think people who take drugs are just a bit stupid or easily led. Alcohol is fine in small amounts but I don’t like it. If you’ve read my previous blogs about my eating habits, you will know that I don’t like food. The same applies to drinks. I don’t really like vodka and I don’t like anything fizzy.

Day 04 – Your views on religion.

I’m not religious. I definitely believe we evolved from monkeys and Earth was created by the big bang. However, I don’t NOT believe in God…I just find it very unlikely that he exists. I would need complete proof. If he comes down and has a chat with me i’ll be more than happy to believe in him. I talk about God with Christianity in my mind, as that is the main religion of the UK (if you don’t include atheists/agnostics as a religion). There are so many religions, so who is to say which is the right one? Someone (or everyone) has to be wrong. Sadly, I think religion is the cause of a lot of problems in the world. I’m more than happy for people to be religious and believe what they want, as long as they don’t feel the need to force their views on other people.

Also, to be topical:

Gay marriage = fine.

Forcing churches to marry gay people when they don’t want to = not fine.

Being selfish and wanting a church wedding when you clearly aren’t religious isn’t really fair on the religious people, and the fact gay people can now get married AND have a civil partnership means they have more rights than the rest of us. Everyone should be allowed to get married (e.g scrap civil partnerships) and churches should be allowed to choose who they marry . There is nothing wrong with a registry office! That’s where i’ll be getting married one day.

Day 05 – A time you thought about ending your own life.

I have NEVER thought of ending my own life.

If anyone reading this ever has a suicidal thought…just don’t even bother. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem and even if you don’t think so, you have so much to live for. It will always get better!

Day 06 – Write 30 interesting facts about yourself.

God…that’s a lot of facts. I can’t promise these will be interesting! Blonde-anime-waving-for-blog

1. I’m a girl.
2. I’m 22.
3. My hair is blonde.
4. My eyes are blue.
5. I’m not girly.
6. I’m from England.
7. I live in the countryside.
8. My boyfriend is Asian.

11. My favourite colour is blue…or maybe red.
12. My favourite animal is a rabbit.
13. My favourite book is Harry Potter (all of them!).
14. My favourite food is chocolate.
15. I love Studio Ghibli.
16. My best friend is obsessed with anime and manga thanks to me.
17. My best friend forced me cosplay once and now I really enjoy it.

22. I like late night walks with my boyfriend.
23. I’m really unsociable.
24. I don’t have many friends but the ones I do are really great friends.
25. I wish I could get a job working with animals but I know there is no money in that.
26. I need to learn to drive.
27. I think being British is the best nationality. Actually something like Swiss is probably better…
28. I stay up far too late writing blog posts.
29. I’m mostly English but i’m also a little bit Welsh and a little bit Irish.
30. I’m a little bit weird.

Day 07 – Your zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality.

I am Leo. My zodiac element is fire and my ruling planet is the sun. (Why do I hate hot weather then?) According to the internet Leo’s are confident (in most ways yes, in social situations no), ambitious (not especially), generous (it’s not often I share cake), loyal (I am), encouraging (I’m not good at being overly nice to people but I do try to encourage them), pretentious (hmm, not really), domineering (occasionally), melodramatic (i’m not dramatic at all), stubborn (I admit I am pretty stubborn) and vain (I’m the least vain person ever, I’ve only worn make up about 6 times in my whole life…)

If we’re talking about the Chinese zodiac, I am a sheep or goat. One of the most boring zodiac animal in my opinion! Apparently Sheep people are elegant (not really but thanks), charming (I have my moments), artistic (very!), gifted (I don’t want to brag but…;)), fond of nature (I love wildlife and animals!), insecure (I don’t think i’m insecure at all), shy (I am shy), dreamers (I love to dream), worriers (not really, i’m quite laid back), lazy (YES), obsessed with appearance (no, no, no), romantic (I wish I was), sweet (I am), bossy (yes), creative (yes) and caring (yes).

I also found this on the internet…so apparently I would be a good prostitute and I’m going to have an affair? >_<

Sheep women dream of marriage with a rich man, an affair with a generous boyfriend, or a liaison with some influential patron. Failing this, she will be happy living at home with wealthy parents. She is the stuff of which are made courtesans, prostitutes, management consultants, public relations officers and other parasites. She is also the stuff of which great artists and writers are made. Everything depends on her luck and the influences at work in her life.

Day 08 – A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life.


I’m generally satisfied. My life is great. I’m extremely lucky that my family all like each other, my parents aren’t divorced and we have never had any money problems. The only bad times have been family deaths. I’m easily pleased and I have everything I could ever want (except a pony and a swimming pool) so why would I be dissatisfied?

If anyone else decides to take part, please tell me! I’d love to read!


(p.s I’m off to my boyfriend’s parents house tomorrow so I might not be online for several days!)

  1. I’m proud of you that you actually want to do those challenges. I tried to work-out challenge but after 1 day I couldn’t move 😀
    PS don’t worry about being sheep, I’m also a sheep – honestly our chinese zodiac sucks and everyone will push us around but I believe I can overcome my zodiac-destiny and become a dragon, muahah!

  2. I am a tiger and wife is a dragon, which means I’m aggressive and she’s lucky. It works…somehow, it works. As for the rest of the challenge, I’ll keep it in the back of my head.

  3. I too am a Leo. Those of us born during the hottest times of the year possess the element of fire, so we’re usually not too fond of the heat. That also explains why you like the beach: close to the water. My wife of 36+ years was born in the year of the goat. So, I’m biased and I don’t think that “goats” are boring. To understand your nature from a horoscope, you’ll also need to know your day element.
    I work for a university and research universities all keep animals. Maybe you can find a job working in Animal Care? Best wishes for a “happy ever after”.

    • Wow, that is interesting! 😛 Maybe it explains why I love water but can’t swim! I will have to look up this day element thing.

      I’m not sure I could work in animal care because i’d get too upset if anything happened to them ;( But I wonder if working as a receptionist in a vets might be good…

  4. I am a Dragon and an Aries. I heard the combination is dangerous because these people usually have terrible tempers. I’m embarrassed to say it’s pretty true. When provoked I can be one of the craziest people on the planet!
