20 Facts About Me

1. My middle name (Johanna) is pronounced 'Yohanna' - it's one of my nan's middle names and she's German. I always correct people when they pronounce it wrong... and sometimes I wish I was actually named Johanna.

2. Before I studied Journalism at university, I did one semester in Early Childhood Studies. I dropped out as I nearly failed the semester. Cue mad flick through the prospectus and chose Journalism purely because I wanted to stay in Sheffield.

3. During my 'drop-out' year, I worked in the Crocs shop in Meadowhall. You guessed it, I sold those delightfully disgusting things. I had to wear them too. The only way I managed to wear them is by covering them in Muppets and Disney 'jibbitz'.

4. I bite my nails. It's gross. Sorry about that.

5. I used to have bleach blonde hair when I was 16.

6. I have a cat called Xander - he's now classed as a senior and he's a big wimp. He's been shot in the tail once... and got ran over and broke his pelvis.

7. I have two tattoos and currently planning on getting one extended.

8. I have a very low threshold for pain.

9. I have a small scar/dent on my forehead. I was being chased by my nephew (of similar age) when we were around 4 years old. I managed to run head first into a bookcase. I didn't get a corner though, so who knows how it dented my head.

10. I don't read enough. I'd love to be able to sit down and read a book, but my mind is constantly on the go. The last book I read was Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close... It took me 3-4 months to read.

11. I have an extensive list of films I need to watch. I sometimes buy films to make it easier for me to watch them, but some are still in the wrapping untouched on the bookshelf.

12. I have a very unhealthy obsession with Brandon Flowers/The Killers. So much so, I've paid £100 for gig tickets and £60 for the Hot Fuss album (on vinyl) without even thinking about it.

13. I've had one crash in my car - I reversed into a lamppost.

14. I won the 'Most Changed' award in my Sixth Form Leavers Awards 2007. I hope it was in a good way.

15. I really want to visit Paris, Hamburg (where my nan is from), New York and Sydney. In fact, I'd love to live in either of the last two... Or at least the same country.

16. I can take compliments, but I always blush to the same colour as my hair... Then people tell me that I'm blushing, which makes me blush even more.

17. My best friend has the same surname as me. We used to pretend we're cousins back in school, fooling some students and teachers. I've never been sure how we managed to, as she has a twin brother who I didn't claim I was related to...

18. I once got into a little argument with Gok Wan over journalism/interview techniques. According to him, journalists can't put people on the spot. I think it was an excuse because he couldn't answer my 'current trends' question very well.

19. I love baking cakes and I wish I had more time (and more money) to bake more often.

20. If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is pay off any debts/mortgages that my family have. Most people would say they'd buy a car or a house, but I'm not bothered about those. I might stretch to a Mulberry handbag though when my good deeds are done...
