10 Facts About Me

1. I’m an introverted person and need time alone most days
2. Watermelon is my favourite fruit
3. I have an alphabetised DVD collection of around 650 films and I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like lending
4. Duncan Bannatyne from Dragon’s Den once tried chatting me up
5. I grew far too many teeth. I had to have an op when I was younger to remove lots of them – they were pretty screwed up, growing in different directions etc. – I still have the teeth they took, in a jar!
6. I have a weird fantasy about ‘giving everything up’ and living in a shepherd’s hut away from civilisation, eating fish and berries (I probably won’t actually ever do this)
7. Green is my favourite colour
8. It’s my 30th birthday this year
9. Sometimes when I’m driving I put on exciting music and pretend I’m on a rescue mission
10. I’m an atheist

    Interesting facts Emma. I’m an atheist too, but don’t keep my teeth in a jar. You sure have a lot of blogging friends. It took me about half an hour to scroll down all the comments so I could insert mine.

    Emma darling, thank you so much for nominating me. I’m very honored, Sweetie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your 10 facts and agree with the loaning part TOTALLY!!! Also, I’m the same way when it comes to being alone. I’m very fond of my alone time, and that’s what I loved about NY, actually. I did many things there by my self, like going to the movies, and loved it. Kudos to you, sister. Your’e great!!!!

    • emmakwall says:

      That’s so cool! It makes me realise how little I know about people sometimes, I’d love to hear more about your time in NY and adventures, I bet you have some great stories!

      Oh no sweet Reut you are soooo welcome! Your blog is excellent and fun and interesting 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed my facts and feel the same about alone time 🙂 it’s nice isn’t it! Sometimes I feel less stressed by myself. It’s odd! 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤

      YOU are great!!!

      • sweetarchive says:

        It’s not odd at all. When your’e alone you don’t have any obligation towards anyone but yourself, which sometimes can be very refreshing. You are awesome to, Darling! I’m preparing a dedication post for Monday on the versatile blogger award with your name on it. Have the best weekend!!! 🙂

  7. I’m going to try to check all these blogs you recommend out. We have a bit in common too! I didn’t grow extra teeth but a quarter of my baby teeth never fell out and I had to get them removed when I was kind of old…I think around 14 which was pretty weird of me! I’m also an atheist, I definitely love watermelon(yum!) and I dream about building a “tiny house” and living off the grid or some version of that(but not THAT far from a movie theatre). I’ll be 33 in May (yikes) and Kelly Green is one of my favorite colors. Hooray. I love reading about bloggers so thanks for giving us this insight into who Emma is!

      We are blogging buddies after all!!

      So what happened with your baby teeth, did you adult teeth grow around them? My teeth still aren’t great and not just because I’m English! Hahaha. My top teeth are okay because I had braces but my bottom teeth are a bit of a miss match haha! It doesn’t bother me and you can’t see them really anyway.

      YES!!!! SUSAN YES! A tiny house!!! That’s what I want!! Okay the fish and berries and living off the land won’t happen because I enjoy bubble baths and charging my phone lol but I just want a little place that is mine, that I can move and is very cosy! 🙂

      It’s great finding more out isn’t it! I look forward to reading your answers!

      P.S I haven’t ignored your last comment on the Top Gear post it was just so long I have to give it my full attention and reply properly. But I had a skim read and glad we’re still buds 🙂

      • I daydream about the tiny house life so much. Not TOO tiny but “tiny”. Have you seen the tumbleweed tiny homes? Those are cool because they’re on wheels so you can travel with them and park them but they’re too small for me and I wouldn’t want to park in anybody’s backyard but I’d love a small cabin or other style little home! Get rid of the junk & clutter, clarify what I really need in my life and then include it and none of the crap. All about simplicity and living in the moment. Plus I’m consistently impressed by all the creative uses of space I see in those tiny homes. I love the idea of getting away from people, having a quiet space and also saving money that way so that extra cash can be spent on travel and experiences. It sounds like such a lovely life.
        My weird baby teeth hmmm well I supposedly had a lot of space in my…gums…or something I was told. So my other teeth didn’t push on my baby teeth. I had to get one pulled and then the tooth would come in, pull the next and so on. It wasn’t any of my front teeth. Then I got braces for a year. I’ve also never had my wisdom teeth removed. Not sure what goes on with that in the UK but here everybody gets them taken out when they’re a teenager to prevent them becoming impacted and infected but mine never “came in” and again I was told “you have a lot of space in there” so I guess they “fit”? Never had ’em out!

        P.S That’s okay I think you apologized before for another time you didn’t want me to think you were ignoring me! So whatever I said still stands, probably that it’s no big deal and no obligation! =)
