1. What is your middle name?
Catherine. Technically I go by my full name wherever possible, so Amy-Catherine. My dad calls me by my full title, and I prefer it that way. Only a select few are allowed to call me by my nickname Aims, and I've been known to tell people they can't use it to address me. I'd rather my full name in those situations.

2. Share you favorite subject in high school.
English and Art History. I was a bit of a creative nerd - sneaking into the Art room on lunch breaks, getting special permission to paint during free classes, having essays pulled for their content, I was the token emo kid by a country mile!

Alcoholic? Gin and Tonic, Guinness or a good spicy Bloody Mary. Regular? Smooth orange juice. G'way with your bits, gimme smooth juice, ice cold!

I mean, I guess it would have to be What Do You Mean? By Justin Beiber, but of all time, my favorite song is Venus Doom by HIM.

I haven't a clue. I have no plans for small screaming sticky humans in the near or distant future.

Archery impacted my life so positively, even though I don't shoot anymore, I'm proud to have my arrow tattoo.

I could say The Harry Potters, but I actually have a real answer: Chase Your Shadow, by John Carlin. It's about Oscar Pistorious and its INSANELY good. It's a factual book about the trials and his life, and it's worth a read. I picked up my copy in Vibes and Scribes in Cork for under a tenner and I tore through it! Also worth a read is Angelas Ashes. All the women in my family read it and we all got something different from it!
