I have already written a post in celebration of my friends, Paul and Ben, birthdays, which fall on the 10th and the 12th of this month. Right now, my friends are living it up in Blackpool and because I am back in Dublin, I have not been able to go. I so should have been there, but seeing as I couldn't. I decided that I would record them a special video. It took about 2 hours to shoot because the cameraman was my brother and because we had some weed, we got the giggles every time I opened my mouth to sing. We didn't even know what we were laughing it. I don't know if they have seen it yet, but I hope they like it.
I wasn't able to locate the video using the YouTube tool on blogger, but you can view the video by clicking here.
Now, for this week's Sunday Stealing. The past number of weeks, the Meme's I have been posting every Sunday have been part of a 7 strong collection. I haven't always named them and I have removed some questions, which are aimed towards the American blogger. But this is the final part of this particular Meme collection.
Describe the routine of a normal day for you:
Well, I am currently not working at the minute, and my day's of late have not been what I would consider normal. So I will break down what a normal day for me should be. If I am working, I usually set my alarm for about 3 hours before my start time, let's just say for 9AM. I will then snooze for about an hour of that, then I am forced to rush around, shower, dress and get my ass out the door. Once, I get work out of the way, I would usually have a small lunch, pineapple usually and about 2 cigarettes.
When my work day is finished, I will usually head straight home, tidy up the mess I would have made that morning and prepare my evening meal, usually consisting of chicken breast and broccoli and some fruit. Some day's I might then make plans with friends, if not, I will usually go for an evening run.
This schedule has been broken up since I came home, as I am currently looking for more suitable work and I have to say, that I have slacked on the work outs and the diet. Luckily I haven't gained any weight but I also have not lost weight.
What is your greatest strength as a person?
I have a very strong personality. I am strong willed, I have courage, I am opinionated and I am not afraid to stand up for myself. I am adaptable, optimistic and open minded. I am fiercely loyal, protective, artistic and creative. These are all traits of what I consider a strong personality.
What is your greatest weakness?
I am far to impulsive for my liking. I have an addictive personality. I have made so many stupid decisions, turned my life upside down, all for the sake of a wacky idea. I sometimes wish I had more foresight. But sometimes 'The Fun' just takes over.
Are you generally self-contained?
No, not even close. Every aspect of my life, the involvement of others is crucial. My friendships, my family relations, all of these play a big part of my life. The only things I really keep to myself, that I don't like to disclose or share with others, are some of the more negative things of personality, such as my addictions. I try not to talk about these with others and it makes me uncomfortable when others bring it up.
Are you generally organized or messy?
I am not actively organised, I don't have a date planner nor do I write down important dates on a calendar. I like to keep my space reasonably clean and tidy but I am not obsessive about it. In work, I can have papers all over my desk, notes scribbled every where and to anyone else, it would look like chaos but I know where everything is and what everything means.
Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at:
Ok, I will start with the good. I consider myself to be a very good singer. I will let you judge by clicking on the above YouTube link. I am good at writing, I know how to construct a good story and I am a really good dancer.
3 things I am bad at. Well, staying out of trouble seems to be a big one. I am not great at waking up in the morning and I am awful at D.I.Y. Flat pack furniture, will bring me out in a cold sweat.
Do you like your neighbours? Do they like you?
We have neighbours on both sides of my Mothers house, on one side, we have a sweet little old lady and her daughter who is about my age and we have always gotten along. We leave our spare key with them, they feed the dog if we are away, they do all the things good neighbours do. We get on well. However on the other side, there is another family and although the children, who are a little older then me and my brother have always had a friendly relationship, their Mother and our Mother have always had a passive aggressive relationship
When I have lived away from home, I can only recall one problem with a neighbour. One had raised a noise complaint with our local council, which was completely bogus, the whole house was interchangeable, every few months, new tenants would come and go and she would make one of these complaints against someone different every few months. Nothing ever came of it.
Are you different in public than you act among friends?
I guess in some ways, we adapt ourselves, depending on our audience. When I am with my friends, I am usually quite loud, laughing, having fun, expressive. If I am with my Mother for instance, I might be a little more reserved, if I am in a group of strangers, I might be more bubbly, absorbing the atmosphere, getting to know people, usually easing them into the tornado that is my personality.
What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime?
This is a hard question to answer because it changes frequently. I would love to have a career in writing. I would love to write a book, I would love to perform in front of a large crowd. To many to choose from. But out of all of these, I would like to have a successful, acclaimed book published.
Where do you see yourself in 4 years?
I would like to have completed or be in the process of getting a 3rd level education. I would hope that at some point between now and the next four years, I would like to have fallen in love.
If you could choose, how would you want to leave this world?
In a fiery blaze of glory. Saving the world.
If you had only one week to live, what three things would be bumped up on the bucket list?
1. I would jump out of an aeroplane.
2. I would try and see all the worlds natural wonders.
3. I would make sure my family knew I would like to donate my organs.
What is one thing about you that really stands out?
My confidence. I don't know how I can say this without sounding arrogant, so I am just going to say it. People gravitate towards it, they want to be my friend because I am a confident fun person and this is usually obvious as soon as you meet me. It makes me sound like a right cocky bastard but it is the truth. It wasn't always that way though, I had major self esteem issues since high school, its only been in the last 3-4 years, that I have learned to come out of my shell, accept the flaws I can't change and just be as awesome as I can.
What three words best describe your personality?
Extroverted, friendly, charismatic.
What three words would others probably use to describe you?
Fun, loyal, liability.
What advice do you have to give?
One, thing I have learned, over the last few years. Is if you are unhappy about something, try not to let it poison the things you are happy about. For instance, I have substance abuse problems that have been difficult to deal with but I tried hard to not let it effect my confidence. I separated the two. Also, it's okay to be inconsistent sometimes. I consider myself to be very extroverted but I have my moments, phases of being introverted. It's okay to have layers and it's okay if some of those layers aren't perfect.
I hope everyone has had a good weekend.
