Yes I am finally here! I have made it to the sunny wee corner of the world that is my blog!
What with being away for a few days at the beginning of the week and having to catch up on my school work when I returned, I haven’t been able to blog! I still have some school work to catch up on so today I thought I would keep it short and sweet with a cute survey that I have seen quite a few bloggers do, courtesy of Ashley over @ALadyGoesWest!
I love learning new things about other bloggers so hope you enjoy reading my answers!
1. What’s your whole name?
Jennifer Margaret Audrey Fotheringham (Maiden name was Hicks)
- Are you named after anyone?
My two middle names are that of my Nanna and Grandma – and I love that! (even though I have a crazy long name!)
- Do you have any siblings?
Yes! One fantastic brother Paul, who is 4 years younger.
( Yes in this pic Paul and David look very similar! Think its the hair and glasses!)
4. Where did you grow up?
Inverurie, Aberdeenshire in Scotland. A small wee town about 20 miles from Aberdeen. A fab place to grow up!
- What activities did you do in high school?
In the UK we dont tend to do much extracurricular activities in school. I loved drama and was always part of the school plays.
Outside of school I was always involved in Girl Guiding (I even became a leader once I finished Uni) and I danced from the age of 2- 15 – tap, modern and highland dance.
- Where did you go to college?
University (as we call it)! I went to the University of Dundee.
7. What activities did you do in college?
I just had fun! I studied and then enjoyed spending time with my friends – lots of nights out (we can drink here legally from 18) and then had 2 years of travelling back and forwards to Edinburgh to see David!
- What did you study in college?
I studied History and American Studies (history, politics, geography, philosophy of the country)
- What was your first job out of college?
Finding a job was tough! But my first one was as a Box Office Assistant for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo (I moved to Edinburgh once I graduated)
- What kind of music do you like?
Mostly, rock and metal! Yes that often comes as a surprise to most! But I am so eclectic in my tastes – my ipod will have everything ranging from metal to pop, to 80’s electronica, to dance, to what is in the charts right now!
(Never fear, just our Iron Maiden tour t-shirts!)
- What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?
Get back into dancing, I quite fancy trying something with David, like salsa or tango!
- What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?
From a very young age until the day I left University I wanted to be a History teacher. Things just didn’t work out that way when I didn’t get past the interview stage for my postgrad. There were only 8 places and 200 interviewed. I was gutted. But I do believe everything happens for a reason!
- What’s the biggest project on your to-do list right now?
I have so many to do lists in my head! CrossFit? A pull up and handstand. Home? Sorting out cupboards and putting clothes on ebay. School? Do more reading. But if I had to hone it down…. I would pick project Fotheringham! David and I planning on our future! Lots on the cards! #exciting
- Do you have any irrational fears?
I don’t think so… I don’t like going into water that I can’t see the bottom of – so it kinda rules out the ocean!
- Have you ever traveled outside the country? If so, where and when?
Yup! Europe – The Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain and Belgium. USA for our honeymoon. The United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi and Dubai) and Oman (my favourite place in the world).
16. When’s your next vacation and where are you going?
Don’t know! But due to a kind gift from my parents we will hopefully be planning one soon!
- Do you speak any other languages?
Nope! Scraps of French that I remember from school but that’s it.
18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?
I wish I had the ‘talent’ for CrossFit. Yes I can ‘do it’, yes I love it but I wish I was naturally talented at it – I certainly have the passion, commitment and drive for competitions etc… just wish I had the strength and natural talent so I could compete!
19. What’s something that you wish you did more of?
Yoga, swimming and recipe creating.
20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?
I am currently at school training to be a Health Coach so I am doing everything I can to be doing the job I want to do!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I would love to know some of your answers to the questions above…
