Vogue Parody - 73 Questions with Me!

The 73 questions idea was started by Vogue back in 2014. It's a fun and easy way of getting to know celebrities. Now it's my turn to have a go and hopefully, you learn some more about me!
I was nominated to join the game by Becky over at Musical Theatre Lives In Me – Take a look at her blog here.
1. What’s your usual Starbucks order? 
I don't particularly like hot drinks, other than Hot Chocolates and I tend to only have them in the winter. I'm more likely to order a fruit smoothie - anything with mango in it!

2. What does your work station look like? 
Tidy or I'd never know where I'd put things!

3. Favourite Food?
A difficult question to nail down. I'd probably say pizza but also love fish and chips (with mushy peas!) and gammon and eggs.

4. Favourite Author? 
Probably Marcus Sedgwick as I've read more of his books than any other author. My favourite of his that I've read is A Love Like Blood - probably the book I've enjoyed most generally.

Sedgwick
5. What do you think of open relationships?
A definite no from me.

6. What is your favourite video game?
I only really ever play Fifa so that's the answer!

7. Guilty Pleasure treat?
Apple crumble or McFlurries!

8. Favourite Movie?
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. A cinematic masterpiece.

9. Favourite Book? 
See back to question four!

10. Twitter or Instagram?  
I think Twitter as it's a better way to connect to people whereas Instagram is just seeing people's photos and what they're up to rather than having that connection or conversation that you might have on Twitter.

11. Laptop or Desktop? 
Laptop.

12. Best advice you’ve ever received?
To never give up. Having someone believe in you during the darkest times can be so helpful.

14. Favourite Colour? 
Royal Blue - Leicester City colour.

15. Did you get good grades in school? 
I got all the C's in GCSE's and went on to complete a BTEC National Diploma in Computing and also an apprenticeship in business administration

16. Dream Job?
Writing theatre content or just working within a theatre. Theatre is my greatest passion and love and I'd love to be able to spend my life within the theatre.

17. Play any sports?
Not any more really. I used to play football quite regularly and also a bit of tennis.

18. Do you have a degree? 
Nope, but see question 15 again for my life's academic achievements.

British.

20. What is your favourite kind of blog post? 
To write and to read - theatre content; reviews or reacting to the latest stagey news.

21. What do you like to collect? 
Autographs I guess is the answer. I love going to stage doors after a performance and asking the actors I've just watched to sign my programme. I guess in that regard too theatre programmes themselves too - I've endless boxes of them from across the years!

22. Describe yourself in three words
Weird, loyal and kind.
