The Story Of My Life TAG

In today's post I am going to do The Story Of My Life TAG! I have actually seen
lots of videos on YouTube on it, but I haven't yet seen any blog posts, so I thought I should be the first and share my funny and weird stories with you all haha. Enjoy!

When and where was your birth?
I was born on the 17th July 1989 in Richmond, London.

Who chose your name(s) and was there a reason?
My mum and dad were actually going to call me Charlotte right up until my birth and then they decided on Sarah. My middle name Louise was chosen by my nan, as she had always liked that name. Secretly I have always wished my name was Scarlett, but I guess you win some and lose some, right? Haha!

Earliest childhood memory?
This ones hard, as I have a few all from around the same time. But it would probably be when me, my mum and dad would have a daily walk by the Thames. Our house looked directly over the river, so a walk each evening there was probably pointless - as we saw it so often LOL, but it was so relaxing and peaceful.

What were your hobbies as a child?
I have had so many! From private swimming lessons to ballet and acting classes - I have literally done it all. At one point this was my weekly itinerary: Monday was netball, Tuesday was Italian lessons, Wednesday was basketball, followed by Brownies, Thursday was netball again, Friday was guitar practice, followed by a dance class and Saturday was music lessons. So, yep, you name it - I've done it LOL! My parents always encouraged me to take on extra activities, as it helps you learn and grow as an individual and I honestly couldn't agree more. My only hobby now is shopping, which is a shame, as they are a great way to meet new people and have fun, whilst exploring new ventures.

Do you have any siblings?
I do indeed. I have three sisters and one brother. I'm the youngest though ;-)

A funny story of something you did or said as a child?
Probably the most embarrassing moment (of my life) was when I was about 8 or 9 out with my mum shopping. We were casually browsing the aisles when Mousse T - Horny started playing. If you don't know it, please listen to it on YouTube. The lyrics go "I'm horny, horny, horny, horny" etc and guess what I did? Started singing it out loud, and when I say loud, I mean at the top of my voice (Beyonce eat your heart out) haha. I obviously didn't know what horny meant at the time, but people started looking and laughing because a little girl was singing inappropriate lyrics LOL. My mum panicked and said "no Sarah, its honey, honey, honey", to try and make me sing something a bit nicer, but I stuck with it. Me and my mum still laugh about it to this day. Its definitely a cringe worthy moment that I will always remember!

Did you do well at school?
Yeah I did. I will confess I was a total geek at school LOL. I wasn't rebellious one bit! I love learning and I enjoyed school (even though I'm sure many others didn't). The only negative I could say, is that schools shouldn't put children under so much pressure. Even if you don't or didn't do well at school, its not the end of the world. You can always retake a class or go onto college and study something you enjoy. All I would say is never give up and just because you might not like a certain subject, don't give up on learning altogether.

First teenage celebrity crush?
I'm not sure which one was first, but my three favourites from when I was young was Ben Adams from the group called A1, Gareth Gates and also Lee Ryan from Blue.

Favourite song(s) of all time?
My all-time favourite song has to be You Are Not Alone by Michael Jackson. I love it that much that it makes me cry nearly every time I hear it LOL. I'm not sure why it makes me emotional, but its the only song that has ever made me teary.

Favourite moment or memory of your life so far?
I have a few. My first was getting my little cat called Pepsi when I was young, my second was graduating university and my third was getting my dogs Bentley and Lily. We actually nickname them Bentley Boo and Lily Lou or Camilla and Charles haha. I know its totally random, but me and my mum nick named them Millie and Charlie as they are literally like a couple (the same as the royals). Plus they really do suit them names. Nice little fact sharing moment there LOL.

Have you fulfilled any of your dreams yet?
One of my main dreams was to graduate university with a First Class Honours degree and I am so happy that I can say I have achieved that. I worked so hard for it, that its nice to now know I can say I accomplished that.

What are your ambitions for the future?
My main ambition is to launch my first business this year. Again I have been working really hard doing all of the preparation work for it, that it will be nice to finally share it with everyone. I would also then like to grow and run several businesses and eventually move to Los Angeles with my companies. (I'm not asking for much am I? Haha). I would say my main aim and goal though is to be happy. Life is so short and I want to just enjoy each moment and have a fantastic life, that when I'm 80 sat at home I can look back and be proud of everything I have done and achieved.
So there we have it, my 12 slightly embarrassing moments and memories. I really hope you enjoyed reading this and finding out a little more about me.

Lastly, I tag everyone reading this. If you do a post or video on it, please leave a comment with the link, as I would love to know your answers!
