Seeing as I’m letting my Instagram followers control my life this week, I asked whether you’d like to see me post a confessions post or a deep post today. And you voted for a post full of confessions so here we are! I hope you enjoy reading.
When I was younger & I’d straighten my hair, my baby hairs/shorter hairs at the front of my head would always go static so I cut them off & I had a random (but small) shaved patch at the front of my head. I had to do my hair a certain way to cover it up and it always involved clips and bows.
My cousin & I once started our own ‘business’ & neither of us actually wanted to do it so the next day we ‘dissolved’ it – we never actually registered it but this was hilarious because neither of us knew how to tell the other we didn’t want to do it anymore when we’d both spent so much time the day before planning it all & setting it up.
I failed my A level Maths…I got an A in GCSE Maths though if that’s any consolation lool.
In high school, me and my friends had to go out of lesson early because we had an exam, so we ran out of the back, ran to the shops and got some crisps then quickly came back into school, thinking we were flippin amazing. Of course, we were actually really scared and kept looking over our shoulders approximately every 3 seconds.
When I watched the movie Penelope for the first time, I kept pronouncing her name as Pen-a-lope like envelope & had no clue I was wrong until my sister corrected me…
Not necessarily from when I was younger, but I can spend weeks at home without leaving the house. And I just thought you should know.
One time after school my friend and I had plans to go to Oldham so we got almost halfway there on the bus & something happened so we got off at the bus stop and walked it all the way back & got the bus home looool.
I didn’t have to do an interview for my first proper job – my sister did hers and the manager said if I wanted a job I could have one too. I don’t know what happened to that company, it just vanished after a while…
My first email address included the word “groove”
I’ve mentioned this one before so you may know this already but I had an interview at Lloyds Bank when I was 17. The interviewer asked me what skill I lacked & I said…leadership. I told my potential future employer that I lacked leadership. So yeah that happened…I mean to be fair it was my first ever interview, we live and learn right…right?! Lool & this below is another snippet from the same interview:
Interviewer: *says something about making mistakes*
Me, clearly not thinking: oh I make a lot of mistakes!
Interviewer: don’t tell ME that!
Man. I think it’s hilarious how I got overly comfortable after a while and…well you can clearly see what happened!
My cousins and I once went on a boat and we saw something in the (not so far) distance. We went to go check it out and got stuck on some wires/ropes. We didn’t know what was happening and thought we were going to drown, so started screaming and panicking (naturally). Eventually another family came and let us jump into their boat and we saw that we weren’t drowning at all, we were just stuck on the ropes. It was pretty funny at the time for us kiddies.
Whenever I’d wear my sister’s heels, I’d always break them…
I once broke my Samsung Galaxy S3 so the screen was smashed and the phone completely stopped working. I was then given an old brick phone which I trapped in the car door and that phone’s screen also stopped working properly.
And last but not least, I always thought that the ‘Yorkie’ chocolate bar (you know, just for men) was actually just for men & that no girls or women were allowed it.
And those are my confessions from when I was younger, I hoped you enjoyed reading! I think it’s so important we allow ourselves to look back and laugh at our embarrassing moments and not take ourselves too seriously – I mean it happened, so what can you do except laugh! Which of these shocked or made you chuckle the most? Or more importantly, what confessions do you have to share from when you were younger?
Until next time,
