Let me just tell you the title of this post has changed about 50 times (only 3 in reality but let’s go with it). At first I was going to go with – okay you don’t wanna hear the (pretty boring) backstory now, do you?
Anyway, on topic with the relaunch of the blog, I thought I’d do a little Q & A so new readers can find out a bit about me and that existing readers can find out some things you maybe didn’t know, either. So I googled Q & A questions and answered random ones. Now let’s begin!
What’s the last movie you watched?
I just watched The Greatest Showman a couple of days ago. I started watching it a while back on the stopover flight to Dubai but couldn’t really concentrate then tbh. But yeah, I actually really liked it. I’m all about being different and standing out from the crowd, so that was a good one for me.
Worst injury you have ever had?
Hmm, worst injury. I’ve been blessed not to have ever broken any bones alhamdulillah but I guess the closest thing I can say is when I was in year 5 and we were playing this weird game. We basically all had to sit on the floor with our legs in front and then a couple of kids had to run through, making sure they didn’t stand on anyone. One of the kids had on football boots or shoes with big studs underneath. Long story short, he ended up standing on my foot as he was running across and my skin broke. You could see my bone coming out and we never played that game again lol.
What is the one item you can’t leave home without?
I’m going to have to say my phone. I can imagine feeling weird going out without it. Even though I’m not always on my phone, I still need to take it with me. Everywhere, pretty much.
What does your name mean?
My actual name means Reddish/Red Star.
What did you do for your last birthday?
I made it last a week that’s what I did lol. I went out with friends and celebrated with family at home. I actually have a post all about turning 21 which you can check out. My next birthday’s coming up soon, but right now I’m not feeling it. I don’t really wanna do anything this year tbh.
If you could give your younger self any advice what would it be?
Stop trying so hard to fit in(!!!). What will be will be. Just enjoy being a kid and being young. There’s so much more I could say but the main thing would be to just forget about everyone else and what they think of you; stop worrying so much and just keep having fun.
What was the last photo you took?
It was a picture of the clouds at sunset when I went to the corner shop. I’d add it here but I don’t wanna be sharing where I live.
What app can you not believe someone hasn’t made yet?
Well this is an interesting one. Ermmmm I don’t know. Oh actually I do know. An app that lets you track your glasses!! If anyone wants to get on that I’d love it as I’m always losing them and I’m sure plenty of glasses wearers can relate.
What’s the funniest joke you know by heart?
Just a quick warning: it’s not funny. It’s not funny at all. But I always imagine that the first joke I’ll be able to think of when asked is ‘why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side’. That’s all I have, okay.
Is what you’re doing now what you always wanted to do growing up?
Sitting at home with no job writing a blog called 1 Week Mary? I didn’t even know what a blog was growing up. I always wanted to be an author growing up as I loved writing. So not really, but that’s not a bad thing.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a bit about 1 Week Mary! I might do another of these Q & A type posts soon as I actually enjoyed it, maybe I’ll do a deep edition? Let me know your thoughts! Ooh, don’t hesitate to leave your answers to some of these questions in the comments below, too. I look forward to reading them!
