Hello there! :)
Studying: University of Warwick
Lives: Manchester / Leamington Spa, England
Interests: Amnesty International, United Nations, Art & Design, Formula 1, Coming of Age Fiction, and far too much television.
Thank your for taking the time to read a little about me. It is highly probable that this “About Me” is likely to be tediously long, so please feel free to stop whenever you get bored (:
To begin with, I suppose it would be prudent to mention the basic details: I’m 20 years old and I live in Manchester, England although I spend about a quarter of my year in Australia during my summer holiday. I have recently started my university course at Warwick, and it’s a lot of fun.
I’m in love with words. They mean so much to me, and I have instant respect for anyone who has the ability to use them effectively. They provide you with the opportunity to emphasise emotions and feelings incredibly well.
I suffer from Zoophobia - “an irrational fear of any non-human animals." Even though it can be fairly difficult at times, it has fortunately only affected me in fairly mundane ways so far; crossing the road if someone is walking a dog this way etc. The hardest thing is probably that I can’t go to friends’ houses if they have pets.
One of my main interests and pleasures in life is reading. A process with the ability to bring about both unbridled joy and eternal sadness. Television shows I enjoy include: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, House, 30 Rock Modern Family, and several more. Louis Theroux is the coolest man alive.
I’m a member of Amnesty International, and they’re a group I would beg of you to take a look at if you ever get a chance. They do such an important job for human rights that seem to be so neglected in so many parts of the world.
I am also particularly prone to sitting down and looking at art for hours, and even try and create a couple of pieces myself. Some of my work can be found at: Gallery.
If you’ve read all of this, I graciously accept your kindness for having done so. Thank you (:
