Bloggers Grilled is a new brand spanking new interview series here on Cosmic Kick. Every week I ask bloggers some of the toughest job interview questions known to man kind!
Last week I kicked things off by interviewing myself (bit weird…). This week it’s the turn of Liam from lifestyle, music and gaming blog, Liam’s Life. Take it away Liam!
Bloggers Grilled Blog Series – Liam’s Life
Tell me about your childhood
I was a bit of a loner as a child. I didn’t really have many friends, I was usually indoors listening to music or playing video games. Not much has really changed then as I’m pretty much the same but with a close knit group of friends now.
I hated going to high school initially because I didn’t really have any friends. I always felt really embarrassed being on my own so would usually hide in the toilets or the library during lunch hours. It wasn’t until I reached my 3rd year that I made some friends and became a bit more comfortable in my own skin.
If you could sing one song on X Factor, what would it be?
I would probably sing ‘Thank You’ by Alanis Morissette. It’s one of my absolute favourite songs ever, it has such moving lyrics and Alanis’ vocals are just stunning. If it was auditions in front of a live audience though, I’d do some K-Pop to keep them entertained. Full dance routine included.
How would your worst enemy describe you?
I don’t think I have any enemies so I’d like to think that nobody thinks horribly of me. I’m sure some people will say that I’m a jerk as I can be quite outspoken at times. There’s also times where I’ll say something online and people will take it the wrong way and I’m sure they will say mean things about me for that. I can’t help how people take things online though so that’s on them, not me.
Describe your biggest weakness. Then describe another.
I can be a little hot headed. I’m not very good at hiding my annoyance or upset at something at all. And I will sometimes say or do something in retaliation knowing that I shouldn’t.
Another? Cooking. I suck.
What’s your biggest regret so far?
That I didn’t do more things while I was at University. I’m very introverted and during my time at Uni, I would go to class and then go back to my flat and lock myself away – sometimes for days on end. I don’t think I ever stepped foot in the Student Union so I wish I’d been a bit more pro-active and made some friends as I was lonely quite a lot. I had my boyfriend but I was hundreds of miles away from all my family and friends.
What is your coping mechanism when you have a bad day?
Not a good one – chocolate. I’ll go home, put pyjamas on and pretty much inhale everything that is unhealthy in my kitchen.
How lucky are you and why?
I feel pretty lucky. I grew up in a good family, never really wanted for anything. All my family and friends were accepting of my sexuality that I never had issues with that. My parents supported me through University, have a good relationship with them. I have a wonderful husband, a good job and a nice house. But I also don’t have a dog or a holiday home in Canada so that’s a major problem.
What was the last gift you bought someone?
I bought some chocolates for my parents as they very kindly came up to visit me with the dog and fixed some things in the house for me.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I was taller. Sometimes I feel like people don’t respect me cause I’m a short guy. That could just be me over-analysing things though.
Thanks Liam! I can totally relate to inhaling the contents of the fridge when stressed 🍫🍫🍫, and I love Alanis. Great choice of song!
