Who is Rawrrbecca? Blogger Q&A

Oh hey, it's me!

I've never done any kind of Q&A post before so I'm actually really excited to write this post. I feel like I chat a lot about my life on my blog but have never explicitly answered any questions about me. Let's change that, shall we?

I'd like to thank Marty Rogers for nominating me. Please do go and give his post a read too!

When was the last time you cried?

The last time I cried was last week after a bit of a dreadful doctor's appointment. Long story short I'm going round in circles at the moment with something - emphasis on the something, no one knows what's causing me pain, and it all got a bit much to be honest. Positive vibes though!

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

I hope so! To be honest, when I first meet people I can be quite reserved. It's not that I want to be but I'm quite shy around new people. Once we've met a couple of times though I open up and you'll see a whole other crazy side of me. I pride myself on being incredibly loyal to my close friends. If you're in my circle of friends I will defend you like there's no tomorrow.

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Yes, generally with my closest friends the most so they know I'm definitely being sarcastic and not rude :')

What's the first thing you notice about people?

How much eye contact a person gives. I think eye contact is a good indicator of how much somebody is invested in your conversation, especially in group conversations. However, I don't base too much of an opinion about the person on this as I know that 1 on 1 eye contact can sometimes be a little bit intimidating if you're shy or anxious.

Scary movie or happy endings?

I love the process of watching horror movies, and I like being scared for the duration but I think I prefer psychological thrillers over gory horror. Not about that life. I like happy endings but don't tend to watch particularly cheesy films anymore.

Favourite smells?

Vanilla and coconut and marzipan are a few of my faves.

What's the furthest you've ever been from home?

I went to San Francisco. Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon when I was 16 on a school trip. Those 10 days were eye-opening and I long to go back. Got to do a lot of saving up first though!

Do you have any special talents? 

I make some cracking Snapchat videos singing my heart out to songs by Take That and Will Young but these work's of heart will never be available for public consumption. Probably...

Where were you born?

Greater London

What are your hobbies?

Bullet Journaling, blogging, board games, gaming, and spending time going outside as much as I can when the weather's up to it. Day trips are my fave.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A computer game designer. I wanted to be the person who turns the basic skeleton of objects into something that looks like it should actually be in the game. I don't think I'm artistically skilled enough though unfortunately. I was inspired by an old Tomb Raider Legend guide that showed how Lara Croft had progressed over the years as technology had progressed. I'd love to be involved in the gaming industry one day.

How many countries have you been to?

More than I realised:
France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Turkey, Wales, and the USA.

What was your favourite/worst subject in school?

I hated science. I find science interesting now but hated the way it was taught. I always felt really bad at science, especially when it came to equations in chemistry and physics. I loved Computer Science, Media, and Classical Civilisation. It was thanks to me taking CS that I got to go to San Fran, and I really loved Classics. Funnily enough, I took all three of these subjects at A-Level.

What is your favourite drink?

If we're talking alcohol I love Malibu & coke or Disaronno & coke. Or, if it's a cocktail I am partial to a mojito. Otherwise, I love apple juice, San Pellegrino grapefruit juice, or a diet coke. Trying to stop drinking coke though as I think I'm actually addicted to the stuff.

What would you (or have you) named your children?

I'd really like to pass down my middle name, I think... but, the older I further into my 20s I get the more the idea of children absolutely terrifies me.

Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?

Helen Anderson, SunshineJess, Jaackmate, and I am liking Zoella's latest vlogs where she's a lot more honest about what goes on behind the scenes.

How many partners have you had?

I've only had one serious relationship, which is the one I'm in - 6 years and still going strong. But before that, I had my fair share of schoolgirl crushes. I'm guilty of being in love with being in love.

Favourite memory from childhood?

Going to Disney Land Paris when I was 10. That whole trip was incredible.

How would you describe your fashion sense?

I'd say I take most of my influences in fashion from grunge and, perhaps surprisingly boho. In the summer I drift a little more to the latter, and in winter I'm more likely to have a grunge edge to my outfits. To be honest it can all vary so much though.

2016 was when I first found my style. Thanks to endless soul-searching on Pinterest and a confidence boost, I built up a wardrobe full of denim and stripes. Loved it. Last year I spent all summer in as many pink and yellow pieces of clothing as possible - followed by burgundy this winter. Now that Spring is almost here (wish it was already) then I'm hoping to go back to the previous two years of my fashion and amalgamate them together.

Watch this space!

Tell us one of your bad habits!

Procrastinating. I procrastinate with a lot of things and tell myself that I'll do it in 10 minutes, I'll just sit here for a while longer. The excuses go on and on, and it's something I need to work on!

Who I'm nominating? You. Yes, you there reader. If you've gotta blog I want to encourage you. So, go and write your answers, publish that beauty of a post and then hit me up on Twitter so I can take a look!
