So I’ve been trying to bring this blog to life and thought it would be nice if I could do a bit of an introduction to myself by completing a 20 questions blog survey for you all to get to know me better through my answers. I hope you enjoy this post and get to know me a little bit better through it.
20 QUESTIONS BLOG SURVEY
1. Do you have any nicknames?
Most people in my life, excluding my parents unfortunately, just call me ‘Ge’. I prefer being called Ge, and it’s the name your more likely to get a response from when summoning me.
2. Are you named after anyone?
I am actually. My name Georgia is after my Great Grandfather (Geoffrey George) who sadly passed away just before I was born, and Michelle, my middle name, is from The Beatles song ‘Michelle’.
3. Do you have any siblings?
I have an older brother who is just under 2 years older than me. It was really great as a kid because I have a constant friend who had similar interests. We were not close during our teens but now as adults, we have a good bond which I think stems to a good understanding of one another. I like to think that we probably know each other better than most other people know us.
4. Where did you grow up?
I grew up on The Wirral, where I still live now. I moved out of my parents house when I was 20 and have moved a little around to different parts of The Wirral over the past 3 years. Currently enjoying life in New Brighton, by the beach of course. I love the beach!
5. What activities did you do in high school?
Activities? What are those? I didn’t enjoy spending any extra time in school than what was necessary. Although I did have to attend after school math booster lessons in my final year to help me with my GCSE’s, I had to stay from 3.30 till 9pm. So I would spend a whole 12 hours in school. I didn’t hate it too much as I got to wear my own clothes, get free Dominoes pizza and stroll around the school in the dark which really fascinated me for what ever reason.
6. Where did you go to college?
I went to college in Liverpool, which is over the water from The Wirral. I got asked a lot why I never attended a college on The Wirral by family and friends and the main reason was wanting something different. The City of Liverpool College offered great courses but it provided me with a different scenery, I was sort of bored of The Wirral and I wanted a chance to meet new people and be away from most of the idiots from my high school who were all attending our local college.
7. What activities did you do in college?
None, again. Because I was studying in Liverpool, my journey home was almost an hour and a half most of the time so I would try to get home as soon as possible unless I had plans with friends.
8. What did you study in college?
I studied Health and Social Care during my first year, before changing to Photography which I went on to study for 3 years. I have also done distance learning since college in Counselling, Mental Health, Dog Grooming and Pet First Aid.
9. What was your first job out of college?
During college I got a job working in a Chinese restaurant called New Dynasty in Hoylake, I enjoyed it a lot and worked there for about a year and a half until we closed. Some of my best memories are from that job and it was definitely a highlight of my teens.
10. What kind of music do you like?
My music taste is vary varied and it defiantly depends on the mood I am in.
11. What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?
I really love the idea of ariel hoop but knowing my luck I would seriously injure myself and I already have a lot of hobbies that take up far too much of my time.
12. What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?
A vet, part of me still does, but I can not deal with loss and I doubt I could stay calm under the pressure.
13. What’s the biggest project on your to-do list right now?
To release my new product, but I’m not 100% happy with it just yet and I won’t share anything until I am completely satisfied with it.
14. Do you have any irrational fears?
Very few, I truly believe all fear is irrational. For example, a long long time ago I was afraid of dogs that I didn’t know, now look at me. I am a dog walker for a living.
15. Have you ever traveled outside the country? If so, where?
I have, but not as much as I would have liked, so far I have been to Cyprus, Ireland, France and Spain.
16. When’s your next vacation and where are you going?
My next holiday will be to see my father in Cyprus hopefully, but I couldn’t say when obviously due to the current pandemic. But I’m rather anxious about it as I haven’t left the country since I was 16.
17. Do you speak any other languages?
I can speak French rather fluently and I know the basics of British Sign Language.
18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?
There isn’t really any talents I wish I had, but I wish I was a bit more athletic. I really admire people who are into sports and active hobbies but it really isn’t for me. I find it hard to commit to them unless its Yoga.
19. What’s something that you wish you could do one more time?
Honestly I devote quite a lot of my time to my business but I still don’t feel like it’s long enough. But I do wish I could spend more time being active and doing the things I love. I have such a wide range of hobbies and I feel like neither one of them gets my full attention.
20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?
Who knows? I honestly can’t answer this question as I am doing my dream job and I wouldn’t want to do anything else.
