this is a survey what I did in 2009

..I'm repeating it now for kicks and nostalgia and shit.
hi, blog! it's been a long time, and no-one reads you any more, so I'm pretty much just posting self-indulgent surveys and the occasional picture o'er here. you don't need to stick around, it's okay. it's allll okay.

Do you love the last boy you were talking to?
in person or on the internet? actually, the answer to both is no.

Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
That would be a literally terrible idea.

What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
listening to Ben Howard and staring wistfully out of my window, because I am a ridiculous cliche.



Honestly, who was the last person to tell you that they love you?
Technically Daniel. But sooooooooooomething tells me he wasn't being serious.

Last restaurant you went to?
Pizza Express in St David's 2, I believe.

Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
mummy dearest.

Did you have an exciting last weekend?
it was okay! I was at home, mostly, but me and Caitlin went out in Cardiff and it was entertaining, so.


Have you ever crawled through a window?
with alarming regularity.

Where were you at 1am Sunday morning?
In the Moon Club, with Caitlin and Gruff/Griff/Ruth.

Is there a secret you've never told your parents?
um. I mean, I'm not really.. consciously hiding anything big? but I mean I imagine there are things that I have deliberately not told people that I have also deliberately not told my parents, so..

Do you like yourself?
I'm kind of a dork.

Who is someone you wish you could fix things with?
Hmm. I don't think there's really anyone I want to fix things with, because that implies some kind of angry breaking and.. yeah, I got nothin'.

Is there anything in your past that you'd like to try again?
pretty much the whole of 2010, and most of my first year of uni. Is that too much to ask? That's probably too much to ask.

Are you an emotional person?
I.. imagine that.. most people are.. yes.

What's something that can always make you feel better?
I have like a list of things called "instructions when sad".
entries include this bookmark:
click if sad, hot chocolate, the Fun. song barlights, baking, and watching Rich be a massive idiot, amongst other things.

Are you a cuddler?
no. Like, not at all.

Will this weekend be a good one?
there's possibly a gig on Sunday? but otherwise, no, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be, like, cleaning and working.

What do you want right now?
someone to clean my room for me, a hug and some conversation, and.. a rocketship.

Who can always cheer you up?
I'm gonna go with Rich, because he has been the cause of more I-was-almost-crying-and-now-I-am-laughing incidents than anyone else, I think.



But if there's something seriously up, it's always Caitlin, Hazel and Cat.

Has someone ever spread a nasty rumor about you?
Honestly, I don't remember. Probably.

What is your relationship status?
terminally single.

Look behind you, what do you see?
my feet, some pillows, and the wall/ceiling-y alcove.

What would you name your future daughter?
god. um. this is something that - like, I'm not sure I even want children.

Who and where was the last concert you went to?
the word virus essay, technically. But if you're talkin' something I went to just for the music, it was Marc Eitzel & Richard Buckner. Both in Cardiff.

What did you eat for lunch today?
a greggs spicy one. mm, nutritious.

Whats on your schedule for tomorrow?
heading into town, possibly hangin' at the cardiff gathering for a bit if it wouldn't be too awkward, looking for some high-waisted jeans, and then going home to copy up notes and hope my housemates are being sociable (ha)

The last song you heard?
Promises - Ben Howard.

Do you still talk to any of your exes?
I mean, I'm not like, best friends with either of them or anything. But yeah, I guess I talk to them occasionally.

If you had to eat 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
how specific are we talkin', here? like, can I say "food"? or "mexican food"?

Has your number 2 on your friends ever made you cry?
This.. who is number two on my friends? Probably not, anyway.

How do you feel about abortions?
Pro-choice, and very much so.

pretty much, yeah.

How often do you drive?
I (still) don't.

Where did you last drive to?
the last place I was driven to was Cardiff. by Caitlin. so have that information. :p

Who was the last person to touch you?
this.. is not something I really keep track of.

How did you and your number 1 become friends?
I love 'your number one' as though that's just a normal way to describe someone. Oh, the bebo age.
but, uh - school.

How late did you stay up last night and why?
I was up until about half three, because Daniel and Nicolas were pestering me with James Blunt lyrics.

What's the connection between you and the last person you texted?
That was Rhys, and he's a friend (who I sort of miss, if I'm honest).


Do you like someone?
romantically? not seriously, right now.

How's your life lately?
it's okay. Kind of lonelier than I'd like, again.

Do you know anyone that is currently locked up?
I don't.

Have you ever dated someone longer than a year?
yeah, Dean - for a year and four months.

What do you think about the current gas prices?
they don't affect me, and there are only so many things that don't affect me that I can care about.
gas prices are certainly not one of those things.

Are you happier single or in a relationship?
in a relationship with someone who I'm very comfortable with. Otherwise, single.

nope.

Um, I think that was Hazel. So, no, I absolutely do not.

a couple of weeks ago, maybe?

it was okay! We didn't really do anything especially exciting.

Jake Bird. It's probably an old number, too.

What's the most interesting thing that happened to you today?
nothing interesting happens to me ever.

If your best friend liked your ex, what would you do?
which ex? If it was Ollie, I would be completely okay with that. If it was Dean I guess I'd be a little weirded out? Like, partly because he is mental, and lives far away, and is mental, and partly because we were together for long enough that the idea of one of my friends being into him is weird as hell.

Name 4 people that you can tell ANYTHING to:
Caitlin, Hazel, Cat, and.. um. That's kind of it, I think.

If one of your ex's came up to you and apologized for something they did wrong, what would you do?
I mean, I can't think of anything either of them did that would really require an apology? But I guess I'd just be like "dude, that's okay. we're cool."

When is the last time you touched drumsticks?
THIS IS A BIZARRE QUESTION. But it would've been at the house christmas party, when we were playing band hero.
