feelings deep enough to swim in

Last Person That

Slept in your bed besides you? Haha let’s not

You went to the movies with? My sister.
You went out to dinner with? One of my best friends.
You talked on the phone to? My mum. Every day.
Made you laugh? My housemates, last night.

Would You Rather

Pierce your nose or your tongue? Definitely nose, even though it’d cause havoc with my allergies. Tongue piercings are a) too painful for me to consider and b) knacker your teeth.
Be serious or be funny? Funny.
Drink whole or skimmed milk? Skimmed.
Die in a fire or drowning? Oh God neither please. Both are horrible.
Spend time with your parents or enemies? Parents…obviously?

Are You?

Simple or complicated? Simple. I think.
Straight, gay or bisexual? Probably closer to Bi.
Tall or short? Average.
Right handed or left handed? Right.
A lover of music or a lover of books? Both. Impossible to choose between them.

Do You Prefer

Flowers or sweets? Flowers.
Grey or black? Black.
Color photos or black and white? Colour.
M&Ms or Skittles? Skittles. M&M chocolate is rank.
Staying up late or waking up early? I like making the most of a day, so early. I get proper cranky without enough sleep though.
Sun or moon? Sun.
Winter or Autumn? Autumn. Because it’s like our winter but slightly warmer.
10 acquaintances or 2 best friends? 2 best friends.
Rainy or sunny? Sunny, always.
Vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream? Chocolate. Vanilla is a poor ice cream choice.
Vodka or Jack? Jack, now.

Blackett St, Newcastle upon Tyne, 1968


Sat watching Geordie Shore and as much as I dislike the image it gives about us Geordies, Newcastle really is a beautiful city.

I love the North East and I think I will always be proud to be born and raised in Newcastle.
