Beauty Vs Brains Tag

Hello :)

So this is a bit of a random post but I've seen it floating around and decided to give it a go, considering i've just got home from Uni and am in a pretty intellectual mood still.

1. Favourite book
I love books so this one is hard. A book i've been reading more recently is A Game of Thrones which is pretty amazing, it's very mystical and super-natural, but I like that because it's so different to real life you sort of teleport into another world. I also love Breaking The Silence by Diane Chamberlain. But I also like non-fiction books like The Quantum Universe: Everything that can happen does happen, which is a super nerdy science book.

2. Favourite Quotation 
I'm not too sure about this, I usually have quotations which I like which are from songs or modern books like in Eat Pray Love it says "In order to get to the castle you have to swim the moat". I do like a lot of Dr Seuss' quotes like..."We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone who's weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love" and also "Be what you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

3. English or Maths?
Neither but both? I've not done either in some 3 years now but when I was at school neither were really my favourite subject but I did pretty well in them. I liked English because you could be all imaginative and read, which I loved. But since I was very little i've been good with numbers and maths and the only way my mum could get me to stay at pre-school was by sitting me down with the main teacher lady so that I could help her count the money. I was a little geek.

4. 5 Musical artists that have changed your life.
Ehm, none have really changed my life? I love music stupidly loads and most songs relate to some memory or time in my life and then you have ones which help you through sad times or go along with the happy times. Although I can't say there are any which I can put my finger on and say "yep, that changed my life!"

5. Favourite and least favourite school subjects
One of my favourite school subjects was Science. I was a little science nerd and got A*s and As in all three, it came really easily to me and I looved doing experiments and learning about space. My other fave subjects were Performing Arts and Music. I took both for GCSE and was the lead in our like main school play (Audrey in little shop of horrors ;) ) which I had to audition for out of like 200 other kids. Least favourite would probably have to be ICT. My teacher was the most boring person in the universe and if you asked him for help he'd pretty much say he didn't understand then walk off.

6. Favourite celebrity "with a brain"
Stephen Fry all the way. I did Health and Social Care at college and we did loads about depression and things and watched lots of programmes and documentaries with him in about his bipolar. I think he's an amazing guy to have done so well. He's funny too. I also LOVE professor Brian Cox...I'm not sure if he's really classed as a celeb though.

7. If you could study anything anywhere, what would it be?
I love studying Ed studies at Worcester uni but I'd rather like to do science at Manchester Uni as i'm pretty sure Prof Brian Cox does some lectures there.

8. What is your 'nerdy little secret'?
I used to go to a maths masterclass on a Saturday! In like year 8 maybe some people from schools all around Worcester met up and were given lessons and lectures from mathematicians and uni professors because we were part of NAGTY (national academy of gifted and talented youth). So yeah, I did maths on a Saturday :/

9. Favourite beauty gurus who you admire for more than their love for beauty/fashion
Hmmm tricky. If we're talking about YouTube gurus it'd have to be Tanya Burr from pixi2woo. I really love her videos and she's like one of the most popular British beauty gurus on YouTube but she's worked hard to get there.

10. If your blog couldn't focus on beauty/fashion, what would it be?
It'd probably be something sciencey, talking about stars or moons or planets of sciencey news or something. Failing that it'd be book reviews.

11. Name a person who inspires you (no friends or family)
It's more a group of people than a single person. People especially children, who are ill but manage to stay cheery and achieve amazing things really inspires me. I think some people really take life for granted at times including myself, but you're always hearing about poorly children who have raised amazing amounts of money for charity. There are also people like Ellie Simmonds, who don't let their disabilities effect them at all.

12. Who is your intellectual soulmate?
I do not have a clue to be completely honest. I'm not super smart so I couldn't say like Einstein or Brian Cox. Although i'd love to meet Brian Cox so i'll just go with him...

Thank you for reading :) Hope you're having a fab Wednesday :)

Lots of love, Lucy xx
