Get to know me!

Hello! I really like reading these kind of posts on other peoples blogs! I was also aware that as my blog is quite new, you guys don't know that much about me! I am not feeling too great again and don't want to leave you guys too long without blog posts, so I have two lovely people working on guest posts for me! I've never had people do guest posts so that is quite exciting! I am also planning some posts to help bloggers, eg "how to take blog photos" "html tips" and other things like that as I get a lot of tweets and emails asking me how I design my blog! I really like writing these kind of posts and have some more personal posts I am planning on writing, I think I may have mentioned a series I was going to do about dealing with different kinds of things, fake friend, heartbreak, health problems. So anyway here are some things you may not know about me!
I have OCD - This is something that not a lot of people know about me and I don't really talk about it that much! I obsessively wash my hands and use hand sanitizer ALL.THE.TIME. It does get quite annoying that I can't touch a door knob without the thought of germs going through my mind. I am very obsessive about time, to the point where I will check my alarm is on the right time a crazy amount of times. In one night I could do this about 30 times. Yes I am not kidding, I check my alarm is on the right time THIRTY times. *sigh* I also cannot touch things an odd number of times, for example if I touch a door once, I have to touch it again. This also applied to my hands, so if I touch the door with my right hand, I have to touch it with my left hand too. There are so many more things I do but I am already sounding very weird! That is one I the reasons I don't discuss it with anyone!
I am the fussiest eater - This got really bad when I was about 16. I am unbelievably fussy, I will only eat certain kinds of potatoes, for example, mashed potatoe is fine. I HATE new potatoes and baked potatoes. I only ever eat baked beans if they are with pasta, my food can not touch on the plate, my sister finds this really weird as if we eat curry, I will have the rice on it's own and the chicken on its own. I love vegetables but prefer most if they are raw. I love fruit but don't really like fruit flavoured things, eg strawberry ice cream! My mum gets really mad at me because of how fussy I am! OOPS!
I can remember almost everything- Whether it is information for an exam or what day/year/event a photo is from I will be able to remember it! When I was younger I was in a school play as one of the backing characters, when the main character was ill the teacher needed someone to fill in. I decided to fill in and she handed me the script but I already knew all the lines! I had been sat in rehearsals and had learnt every single line!
I am very shy - I sometimes wonder if this is just shyness or if I actually have some kind of social anxiety! I think it's getting better and it's generally around people my own age that I get quite anxious. I am fine talking to adults and find asking things in shops but if you ask me to go to a party I will point blank refuse! I think it's because a lot of the people my age where I live are not really similar to me and we don't have much in common. When I meet people who like the same things as me I am totally fine!

  1. I'm similar shyness-wise - If I actually had been invited to parties in 6th Form I'd have not gone because I get so het-up near that particular group of people! x

    1. Yes exactly! It's mainly just the type of people that go that I can't deal with! xx

  2. I feel the same way about my shyness! I love meeting new people, but for some reason I always get really intimidated when I meet people my own age. I wish I wouldn't care so much about what other people thought of me. Also, my parents always get annoyed at how picky of an eater I am even though I don't think it is as bad as it was when I was younger.

    1. I think it's because I'm scared they will judge me and hate me or something! Haha! xx

  3. I have that shyness/social anxiety too. Going to a party scares the crap out of me. I really do think it has actually a lot to do with people around you. I've never got on extremely well with people my age because noone was interested in the same things as I was and I got pushed away. I always felt more comfortable around older people for some reason...

    1. Yes I agree! I've never found people who were that similar to me and I think especially as now I'm older and I don't drink, smoke or take drugs that makes me "different" from everyone else as that's pretty much all they do! xx

  4. I have a social problem too. I get so scared when doing something new especially when starting college on a new course, I just find it so hard to understand people sometimes and it really bugs me as my sister and my cousin both have a lot of friends who they can trust and i find it really hard to make one. At school I used to get bullied for being on my own too and your not the only one who is fussy around food - my diet basically consits of cheese strings, yogurts and crisp sandwiches.

    1. I FREAK out if I have to join a new class! I had to do that last year a few weeks after everyone else has started and they all knew each other! I barely talked to anyone and just kept myself to myself! xx

  5. I have OCD issues too, so I'm with you on that. before I leave the house in the mornings I check the laptop chargers, straighteners and iron are unplugged because i panic about fire, that the taps are off in case of floods and that doors are locked in case of break ins. Not just once, like, alot. It's so annoying! xx

    1. I know! It's a pain because I know if I don't check I will think about it all day! xx

  6. Oh bless you! I have OCD issues too so I know how you feel! Mine are not so bad now as I did some CBT and I know when it starts getting bad that it is because I am stressed about something so I make myself deal with the trigger and the OCD gets better again.

    I have the thing about food touching too! I can't have beans touching my toast they have to be on separate plates, I can only drink milk from a glass - lots of weird little things.

    1. I have the memory thing too! I think it's a great thing to have, I can remember conversations from years ago!
