10 questions tag

1.What is your dream vacation?
I don't really have a 'dream vacation' because ideally I'd love to travel, I just do not have the funds right now to allow me to do that. I have only been abroad the once, to Tenerife. I only brought a passport this year! 

2. Are you spontaneous or do you like to plan ahead? 
I think I'm a bit of both really. I quite like making plans, but just recently anything that I have planned hasn't gone to plan and I hate feeling let down, or getting excited for something that doesn't end up happened. It's hard to be spontaneous these days with my job. I work shifts and I can never guarantee when I will be working until 2 weeks in advance.  

3. Tell us one thing you want to do but don't dare do it.
I really want to go sky-diving. The feeling of being so free, having no troubles or worries (other than landing safety I guess!!) Just living for the moment. The big glitch is that I hate heights. I can not stand looking out of my bedroom window, let alone leaping from a plane billions of feet into the sky. Although, I didn't freak out as much as I expected when I flew for the first time. So who knows, maybe one day!

4. What’s your biggest phobia?
 I have no idea as to why, but I have the biggest phobia of Clowns, now I know this is such a cliché answer but honestly I completely freak out if I see one, whether it's on the TV, in person or even a picture. I suffer from panic attacks and this is a huge trigger for me. I also have the biggest fear of dying, to the point I think about it daily. I think 'what if' and 'how' it's a constant thing I am thinking about or relating too. I think that's because of the amount of people I have lost in my life due to different circumstances, and I never got to say goodbye to them - that honestly petrifies me.  Other than that, I'm scared of spiders.  This question doesn't come with photographs (lol!!) 

 5. If you were stranded on a desert island-what three things would you want with you? (Not including your laptop or family)
My iPhone, my bed and my makeup bag.  

 6. Name three things in your life that you are thankful for.
My Mother, she seriously is my rock. She's provided for me, struggled to bring me up at times but everything I have, everything I am, I owe to her. 
My Job, sometimes it can be hard, sometimes I want to give up but then something happens and it makes me realise why I do what I do, whether its something as little as a smile from a client or verbally thanking me. It's small things but I am thankful for my job and the people I have managed to meet through my job. It's taught me so much and made me a better person. 
My Best Friend, Amy. She's amazing. She has stuck by me through thick and thin. She's given me the most gorgeous god-daughter to love and cherish and she is always there for me, no matter what time of day/night. We have had some of the biggest and best laughs and so many good memories. She's a massive part of my life and I am so thankful for her. 

 7. What was your nickname in High School?.
When I was at school we had three schools, Primary, Secondary and Middle. You then went onto College > University/Work. During Primary school I don't think I had a nickname, even if I did I don't remember it. Although the nickname 'Shanii' was very popular when I started Secondary school. I'm not sure how it come about, but I remember my friend Hannah being called 'Hanii' etc (lol!!)  Then when I reached Middle school and College I was constantly referred to 'Sheyonce' and its still stuck today. That come about one drunken night when 'Beyonce - Single Ladies' come on the radio and I started reenacting the dance. A friend put 'Shannon & Beyonce' together and come out with 'Sheyonce' it's stuck ever since. 

8. If you could meet the President of the United States, what would you say to him?
I have no idea, I'm not into politics or anything. I'd probably ask him how much a pint of milk was and see if he's answer was anything like our political group. 

 9. If you could be any literary character, who would you be?
In all the books I have read, no one stands out enough for me to want to be them. Unless we are talking about transforming into some magical princess with long luscious hair and lives in a castle with her prince (boke!) 

 10. What is your favourite quote?
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
