Far Too Much Information

This weekend, we spent an awful long time in the garage, emptying out old toys and books from when we were little, which left me feeling massively nostalgic. Instead of writing another post about "Growing Up" (because you've all read those posts, right?) I thought I'd get nostalgic about the progression of this blog. I've looked through my first few posts and I think I've found one that will be perfect for this
My 'introductory' type post was the "TMI tag"- ironic considering I don't really do tag posts- and I want to look through my answers and give current Vicky's take on old Vicky's answers...

Red= Taken from old post
Bold= Response

1: What are you wearing? Disney jumper and shorts
The jumper I do still have but it's in the wash. I don't think I still fit into the shorts

2: Ever been in love? Nah
Fair enough- 16 year old Vicky was very smart

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? Fortunately not
Fair again (it's quite repetitive this, isn't it?)

4: How tall are you? 5”6
I have neither grown, nor shrunk

5: How much do you weigh? 58kg
Ah, this is weird because I am still 58kg but certain I'm a bit fatter than I was this time last year. I think I've lost muscle, and gained fat because I don't do weight exercises anymore but that's actually given me a slight confidence boost

6: Any tattoos? Nope, but I do want some 

7: Any piercings? Just my ears
I used to just have my lobes done, but as of 2 hours ago, I also have my helix done now too

8: OTP? Tiovanna <3
Yeah, they're still cute.

9: Favorite Show? F.R.I.E.N.D.S 

10: Favorite bands? Mcfly Mcfly Mcfly
I guess that's still the same. But I'd include Catfish and the Bottlemen and Florence + the Machine too

11: Something you miss? Waking up and Chris Moyles being on the radio
I do love Grimmy, but yeah- at the time I origionally wrote this, I was still grieving

12: Favorite song? I have so many! But my all time top 5 are:
Stargirl- Mcfly

Halo- Beyoncé

Belle (Reprise) from Beauty and the Beast

Defying Gravity from Wicked

The Scientist- Coldplay(I need to do an entire post on my favourite songs though because generally I have such a varied taste in music)
Well, the first two are accurate but I think I just pressed shuffle on my iPod for the others...

13: How old are you? 16
I got older. Now I'm 17, 18 in less than 3 weeks

14: Zodiac sign? Cancer
Birthday is, surprisingly, still the same

15: Quality you look for in a partner? Kindness and light heartedness 
I guess they're still the same. Also, imagination and hope (16 year old me had her head screwed on a bit more than I do now)

16: Favorite Quote? ‘There must be more than this provincial life’
Still true. But add in a bit of "Never Grow Up", "Let's go fly a kite", "I don't want to survive, I want to live" and "It's just a potato darling" *10 points for the reference*

17: Favorite actor? I don’t really have one..
But I do fancy Chris Hemsworth

18: Favorite color? Purple
Yeah, fine

19: Loud music or soft? LOUD

20: Where do you go when you're sad? To bed with a cup of tea 
I don't have time to be sad anymore. Just suck it up and get along with my day

21: How long does it take you to shower? About 20 minutes
I've knocked that down to 10/15

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Ages! Maybe 2 hours? I’m not a morning person
I'm better now! If I'm going out about 2 hours, if not 15 minutes? Wash, eat, occasionally get dressed

23: Ever been in a physical fight? Yep- I did taekwondo for 7 years
I did, and I did multiple black belt gradings. But I've left now

24: Turn on? A nice smile
FFS Vicky, how cheesy can you get?!

25: Turn off? Rudeness 

26: Reason for starting a blog? (Original question: The reason I joined Youtube?) I want somewhere to share my opinions on things
Because I want a radio job. So writing about music helps me get experience, maybe?

27: Fears? Frogs and fish
And planes. And motorways. And the dark. And loneliness.

28: Last thing that made you cry? Lilo and Stitch
Inside Out (still not growing out of the 'Disney Film Stage')

29: Last time you said you loved someone? A while ago
I used to hate showing any form of feeling towards people in case they didn't show it back. Not so much now...

30: Meaning behind your blog name? (Original question: Meaning behind your Youtube Name?)
GoodMorningBelle- I really love Beauty and the Beast

Never Grow Up- One of my favourite quotes from a film ever
Really is as simple as that

31: Last book you read? Reconstructing Amelia 
Which I loved! One Million Lovely Letters was the latest one I read

32: The book you're currently reading? One Day
I still adore that book so much! Currently, it's All I Know Now

33: Last show you watched? I can’t remember but the last thing I watched was Coldplay at Big Weekend
It'll have been someone at Glastonbury, but I don't know exactly who

34: Last person you talked to? My mum
My dad

35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted? My lovely friend Brittany
That was true. I never text anyone nowadays- my Auntie, organizing babysitting duty

36: Favorite food? Lasagna, and pizza
Don't forget cake Victoria

37: Place you want to visit? Italy
What I really wanted to say was ALL THE DISNEYWORLDS but surely that's too childish

38: Last place you were? My room- it’s 9am so I've not gotten up yet
You lazy sod. 

39: Do you have a crush? Meh..

40: Last time you kissed someone? um, yesterday?

41: Last time you were insulted? About an hour ago
I don't even remember what the insult was!

42: Favourite flavour of sweet? Blackcurrant 
I don't think it is Vicky? I always thought you preferred lemon?

43: What instruments do you play? None, I can’t sing at all so I think it’d be a waste if I could
Still very much true. I do wish I could play piano and ukulele though

44: Favourite piece of jewellery? A ring my parents bought me a few years ago
I do still love that, but I don't really wear rings anymore- I get them caught on things

45: Last sport you played? I went the gym yesterday if that counts?
 No it doesn't. You've not played sport since about 1784

46: Last song you sang? Smile- Mcfly
I must have had that song on repeat for at least a year

47: Favourite chat up line? 'Can I Hakuna your matatas?'

48:Have you ever used it? No! Of course not!
I should very much hope not

49: Last time you hung out with anyone? Yesterday
I think that was a lie. I took a week off to pretty much just sleep but it seemed sad to say that in my very first post ^.^

50: Who should answer these questions next? Anyone who is reading this
My way of saying "I don't know how this blogging thing works and don't have any friends who write"

I hope you found that vaguely amusing. I fear it'll be one of those things which is more fun to write than it is to read, but hopefully there was something that made you chuckle.

Quick side-note: I was interviewed by the beautiful Izzy, you can read that interview here. Please leave nice comments because I was kind of nervous about it...
