I’ve been fairly absent from blogging recently, due to being on holiday and then coming back to Christmas craziness, so I’m easing myself back in with a post on 100 truths about me! I was tagged by my fellow Blogvenger Gareth at 16-Bit Dad. You can check out his post here.
This was just a bit of fun as I get back into the habit of writing regularly, I’ve been tagged in a few posts like these but 100 truths was so different from the rest that I had to join in!
Q1: What’s your name?
A – Zoe
Q2: Any nicknames or aliases?

A – I have four tattoos with an itch for a few more, but no piercings.

A – Yes!
Q55: Are you pro-life or pro-choice?
A – Pro-choice

Q69: Your first kiss?
A – I think it was in secondary school?
Q70: Your first celebrity crush?

A FEW RANDOM QUESTIONS TO FINISH ON
Q89: Do you wish you could change your past?
A – Absolutely. I think about this a lot, like if I could start life over again knowing what I do now, what would I do differently and how would it affect everything else?
Q90: What’s your dream job?
A – Apparently you can’t be a stay at home pug mum and part time movie ranter? My dreams are ruined!
I’d love to be paid to write, I love writing.
Q91: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A – Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. I don’t care that the CGI is bad, the dialogue is weird and the movie got bad reviews – I want my silly space opera!
Q92: What are you afraid of?
A – Dying and being forgotten. There’s still so much I want to do and so much I want to be remembered for, I’d hate to leave things unfinished.
Q93: What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?
A – I’m pretty sure I wanted to be a vet, but then I realised I wasn’t very good at science and not every animal could be saved so I’d probably be more broken than the poor owners.
Q94: If you could have any super power, what would it be?
A – I’m not ashamed to say I have thought about this a lot more than once! I’d love to shapeshift, or be an empath. I’d be a manipulating little shit.
Q95: If you could change anything about your life what would it be?
A – I’d move back home!
Q96: Would you want immortality?
A – No way, there’s only so much you can do in a lifetime, and if everyone else you know and love is mortal then what’s the point? I see immortality as a curse.
Q97: If you could interview anyone alive or dead who would you choose?
A – Carrie Fisher, I’m still not over it.
Q98: Would you say you are happy?
A – No, but that’s what the blog and the meds are for. I’m trying, at least.
Q99: What one piece of advice would you give to yourself at age eighteen?
A – Go to the doctor, get help, focus on yourself for once instead of everyone else – be selfish!
Q100: Where would you like to be in five years’ time?
A – Successful and peaceful
