Today marks my quarter century on this planet, and the beginning of my mid life crisis (maybe.)
I wanted to do something bookish, but last year’s birthday book post was a big one. Instead, I turned to my next favourite topic to talk about. Myself.
Instead of a book post, I’ve hit a random questions generator to answer 25 questions absolutely no one asked me, and probably no one wanted the answers to. I think this is going to go swimmingly.
Describe your perfect first date
Dinner and drinks. I think the cinema is an awful first date, as you can’t talk to the person you’re on a date with.
What’s your favourite home cooked meal?
My Mam’s road chicken.
Do you prefer to eat at home or eat out?
At the moment, out. I’ve just moved to a new city in a new country, and it’s the perfect time to explore the culinary sights.
What’s one thing you’d like to before better at?
Playing piano. I have my G3 and a bronze medal but there’s definitely room for improvement.
How did you get your name? Do you know the meaning of your name?
I don’t know why my parents chose Aoife, I assume it’s because they liked the name. It means joyful and radiant in Irish.
What is your least favourite part of your day?
Would you rather live in a rural area or an urban area?
I’ve lived in either, and I could happily settle in either.
How do you think the world will end?
I think it will happen when the sun burns out.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
The lack of responsiblity, and being able to watch cartoons without my Mam passing comment.
How many email addresses do you have?
Two. A personal one, and a blog one.
Do you believe in fate?
No, I don’t think I do.
What’s one of your favourite words/phrases?

Matilda by Roald Dahl.

Learning to speak Irish with my mother.
What’s your favourite season?
