50 Facts About Me (Part 1)

Okay, I know the proper blogging tag is to do 50 random facts – but frankly, I could not be bothered to think of that many right now. So, here are the first 25 facts about me. Quality over quantity, baby!

UPDATE: 10 months later and I have finally written the second part to this tag.

  4. I have a surgical scar across the front of my neck that is hardly ever covered,
    but also hardly ever noticed.
  5. I won a ten kilogram block of chocolate in a colouring competition.
  6. It is my goal to go cage-diving with great white sharks before I turn thirty. I adore them.

    but it was deemed too controversial to display.
