Fifty Facts About Me + Writing Contest

So I have two things today! First off, my friend Yasmine from the amazing blog Cloudy Dreams tagged me for the Fifty Facts About Myself. I'm not sure if I can do this, but I'm trying:)

  1. I'm sugar-free. Have been for several years. To tell the truth I only miss sugar when something nice is on offer.
  2. I'm an introvert. I prefer to stay inside and write crazy things than go meet people.
  3. I heard of 5SOS until only a little while ago, now I'm hooked.
  4. I wear glasses that really aren't cool!
  5. I have braces. I got them about December last year and they made Christmas really hard, but all in all, braces aren't as bad as everyone makes out.
  6. I don't have a best friend. I used to when I was little, but we haven't been close friends in years.
  7. I like the Heist Society series. Not just because the main character is called Katarina and goes by Kat. They're really great books:)
  8. I did Camp NaNoWriMo in April and lost. I promised myself I would never do it again and then in July I did it all again and won.
  9. I can't stand banana. I don't know why, but I hate the taste of it.
  10. I have been thinking about starting a YouTube channel. I would to know what you guys think of this!
  11. I have never read or watched Harry Potter. I have never felt a huge interest in them. Sorry Harry Potter fans.
  12. I am the youngest in my family. I have two brothers named Leo and Cameron.
  13. Most of my friends are over the internet. I find it hard to talk to people in real life, but on the computer, no problems.
  14. I find it hard to be me in real life! I feel like I have to hide my true interests and what I enjoy and be like everyone else. That's why I love blogging, because I can be me and no one judges.
  15. My favourite colour is green!
  16. My favourite season is winter. I like snuggling up to the heater in heaps of blankets.
  17. My full name is Katarina Grace Joyce. I wrote a post about it HERE.
  18. I have never watched or read the Hunger Games. I must admit I'm interested though. Could people tell me if it's worth it?
  19. I also have never read Divergent. Only listing these books because everyone seems to have read them.
  20. I used to want to be a dancer, but I have never learnt!
  21. I now want to be a writer of some sort.
  22. I was born early. I think it was about a week, but I'm not sure.
  23. I love strawberry milkshakes best.
  24. My favourite piece of music at the moment is Make You Love Me by the Gardiner Sisters.
  25. Earlier this year I broke my arm, it was so annoying!
  26. It took me ages to join Pinterest. I don't know what was stopping me before.
  27. Some of my favourite musicians are Tiffany Alvord, Gardiner Sisters, Merrell Twins, Peter Hollens, Britt Nicole and a few others I can't remember.
  28. I am learning the piano. I want to learn another instrument, but I don't have the money for it.
  29. My favourite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast.
  30. Prefer tea to coffee. And to hot chocolate to tell the truth. GO TEA:)
  31. I don't like jelly sweets. I hate the taste of them and they're really sticky. Anyway I can't eat them with braces.
  32. My brother, Cameron and I used to sword fight in the back garden and I always used to win, much to his embarrassment.
  33. My favourite kind of art is realistic, but I can't draw for the life of me:P
  34. I am afraid of the dark. I always sleep with my lamp on. I'm so embarrassed to have to admit this. I'm fifteen and hate the dark!
  35. I never can sit still very well. I find I must have something for my fingers to do, which is good when I have knitting projects.
  36. I am hopeless at writing book reviews.
  37. I adore mustard and BQQ sauce on my sausages. My brothers can't stand BQQ sauce and that I mix it with mustard they think crazy:)
  38. I am a runner. Every morning after my music practise, before breakfast, I go for a run! You wouldn't believe the looks I get.
  39. I don't really enjoy computer games. I don't get why people are obsessed with Minecraft! I can't stand any computer game.
  40. I have a kitten names Loopy. He's so cute:)
  41. I am a terrible swimmer. I'm so ashamed, but I never really master it. I love paddling, but I can't swim laps.
  42. The only TV I watch is sport and Doctor Who when it's on.
  43. I love writing emails. I hear all these people say that they're hopeless at it or that they hate writing them, but I really enjoy it. Want to be my pen pal?
  44. I am afraid of heights. Another thing that I'm really embarrassed to admit. I can't go up very height without getting scared stiff. I don't know how to explain it. Don't judge me!
  45. I can't eat kiwi fruits. They give me rashes. I think it's an allergy.
  46. If I could go anywhere in the world I would go the Antarctic. I don't know why. I just want to go somewhere that not many people go or want to go.
  47. When I was six I cut off a huge chunk of my hair. My mum ended up having to cut my hair really short.
  48. I love classic. Some of my favourite books are classics. I would be perfectly happy to curl up with a Charles Dickens all day.
  49. I can't sing. I love music and it really annoys me that I can't sing!
  50. Last of all, I'm a Geek and I'm sure you all know that.

 So yep, I did what I thought was impossible and wrote out fifty facts about me!

I tag:

Now onto the second part of this post, I'm planning a writing contest!

A little while ago I hit thirty followers, yay! I still can't believe it, I'm over whelmed and I won't to say thanks to everyone.

I have seen several people do a writing contest to celebrate, so that's what I'm doing.


+It can be any kind of writing (chapter, poem, haiku, anything)
+Keep it clean. No swear words.
+Have fun!
There will be no subject or anything, write what you want. My contest will end on the 1st of September!

Hope you enter:)

Also, this my twentieth post! I can't believe I have gotten this far:)



  1. Congrats on 30 followers! You deserve all of them. I'll definitely try to enter your writing contest! Also, thanks for nominating me for the fifty facts about myself. One of your facts said that you are interested in a making a youtube channel. It would be awesome if you made one!

    1. Thank you! Can't wait to see your facts:)

  2. Definitely make a YouTube channel! I have a channel and I would like to see more videos by teens.

    1. I always love teen channels, they're so much fun, aren't they?

  3. I think the YouTube channel would be great! Also, I'm a big fan of the Divergent and The Hunger Games series. In my opinion they are must-reads, but I don't really know what kind of books you're into, so you might like them or you might not. One of my favorite books is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell it's a really good read that I think most bloggers would enjoy. :)
