Why I should be famous

Instead of the standard 'getting to know me' post, I thought I would write an epic biography *lol* of my claims to fame thus far. So read on, have a laugh at my expense, and tell me what your claims to fame are in the comments!

Now I don't know about you, but I think I'd look damn good on a magazine cover...

A televised news story all about me aired when I was three years old
I was a seriously nerdy child. I loved reading and writing. I would hassle my parents endlessly until they read me my favourite Flower Fairy storybooks. When I was three I won a Parker Pen national handwriting competition and I appeared on ITV Anglia News dressed up in a gingham dress, pigtails, and a straw hat. Cringe. My Dad has threatened to pull out the video tape and show it to all of my friends at every birthday party I've ever had. Thankfully he's never done it, but I haven't managed to burn the tape yet.

A certain letter-writing blogger might recognise this example of my handwriting!

I can fly an aeroplane
I was a seriously nerdy teenager. (Are you sensing a theme here?) I was one of those cool kids who spent several nights every week at the Air Training Corps, marching up and down, polishing shoes and the like. However, we did get to do some great stuff, including going to camp in Germany, and flying aeroplanes. When you go up to fly, there is always an RAF pilot with you, but once you've taken off, you're given the controls and you can fly around, do loop-the-loops, barrel rolls etc. It's a lot of fun! So, I'd actually flown a plane before I had driven a car.

Tom Cruise, eat your heart out!

Jenna Marbles and I are basically BFFs
Well, she follows me on my personal Twitter account, but that's pretty much the same thing, right? I don't know when, why or how she followed me (I have like 100 followers on that account) but we are totally best friends now. Still waiting for the invite to guest star in one of her videos though...

By these criteria, she also has 76.8k other best friends, but I'll roll with it.

I can speak to dead people
"Salvete, omnes!" If you ever successfully invent a time machine and you need a travelling companion to take back to Ancient Rome, I'm your girl. I studied Latin as part of my undergraduate degree and I'm fairly fluent now. I need to learn the slightly-more-useful-in-the-real-world language of German next year as part of my masters course - wish me luck!

Don't tell me that my degree isn't useful.
Leave me a comment below and tell me why you should be famous too! Maybe we'll end up on the cover of Cosmo together one day...

Until next time!
