Embrace your inner nerd - 5 facts about me

Recently I was tagged by the lovely Shona from Freshbeautyxoxo to take part in a slightly different tag! This tag is all about releasing your inner geek/nerd and telling your readers 5 'nerdy' facts about you! So here's mine:

I love making lists ... 
in fact, I am a list freak. I would sit and make lists about every aspect of my life if I could. There's nothing more satisfying that writing a fresh to-do list and crossing out the things you've completed. I currently have a little spreadsheet in place to plan my christmas-present-buying and I love it! 

I used to play the flute..
for 2 years in primary school. I thought I was pretty good, I didn't get a grade or anything mind you but I can still remember how to play twinkle twinkle little star! I only stopped because I was terrified of joining the compulsory school choir in high school!  

I love disaster documentaries ... 
if there's anything on about volcanos, earthquakes, shark attacks, tsunamis, hurricanes etc I am there. All of the above things terrify me, but I just can't help but get engrossed in a tv documentary about them! 

I like to collect things ... 
The obvious one being make-up, a slightly more grown up collection. However, I'd like it to be known that I also had a rather impressive collection of bouncy balls and more keyrings than any sane human being would need in their life time. I also like to collect things to add to a memory box and hold onto to little sentimental things like receipts, completely normal.

I love English ... 
All through school english was my thing, I loved reading othello for my GCSE's and I actually re-read King Lear for my a levels four times for fun. I think I was the only one in my 6th form who actually liked it, I even bought the dvd. I used to make up my own little poems around the age of 10 and I thought I was the bees knees. I flit in and out of being a book worm, and when I can find the time - I thoroughly enjoy getting lost in a book! 

So there's five little nerdy facts about me! I'd like to tag a few other lovely bloggers to embrace their inner nerd: 

So ladies (& gents) feel free to release your inner nerd, everyone loves something a bit nerdy!I'll leave you with a recent lyric I've loved, which just about somes this up

"You're feeling nervous, having your doubts ... 
Don't be embarrassed if you don't fit in the crowd. 
Keep standing tall, and hold your ground .. 
Show 'em it's not okay to let them kick you down" Jessie  J
