50 Things About Me!

Thursday, 31 January 2013


I've seen this idea floating around a few blogs lately and i thought i'd give it a go myself! It's taken me quite a while to think of these 50 things, which really does make me think that i need to have some more fun in my life and spice it up a bit. But anyway, enjoy!

1. My name is Courtney Jayne Melville.
2. I have no idea what I want to do with my life.
3. My dad was born in Scotland, and my mum was born in Iraq.
4. My natural hair colour is practically black, and it doesn’t really suit me.
5. I was nearly called Peach.
6. I am clumsy beyond clumsy, I even trip over air
7. Most girls love shoes or handbags, I have a love for notepads. When I buy them I don’t even right in them because I think they’re too pretty and clean.
8.  I only drink diet drinks.
9. I never feel like what I do is good enough.
10. I HATE conflict and confrontation so much., I try and avoid it at all times and if I happen to engage in it, I will end up crying.


11. Family is very important to me.
12. Sentimental gifts to give or receive are the best kind.
13. I want a tattoo symbolizing hope/strength, but I’m too scared to just go and get it done without being 110% certain on what i want.
14. I have broken more than 10 bones, and I’m in a plaster cast at the moment.
15. My mum is THE cat woman. We have 8 cats! Summer, Barney, Tizer, Lucy, Ruby, Teddy, Domino and Jack! 
16. I suffer from a couple mental illnesses. But that does not make me crazy.
17. I watched my friend fall from a balcony, luckily it was only 2 floors and he is fine.
18. I have 2 dogs, they are both Labradors and one is black and one is yellow. They are called Pepper & Brody. 
19. I love Brody more than anything, he truly is my bestest friend.
20. Sometimes when I come in drunk I will get into my pjs and sleep next to Brody.

SAM_0392 21. I LOVE Slush Puppies
22. I’m 5’6 and ¾. I want to be taller so bad. 
23. I love just looking up at the sky and watching the world go by. Starry nights when the moon is bright are the best.
24. I try and use every Monday as a ‘Fresh Start’, but it never actually works.
25. I once had a panic attack in the Oxford Street Topshop and ended up collapsing.
26. I started this blog on the day my Grandma passed away to help me cope, hopefully she’d be proud of how far it’s come and what I’ve achieved due to it. RIP <3

28.  Im very shy and I hate knocking on peoples doors.
