Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a nice, easy going sort of person. I have my little
eccentricities. Oh, I am little on the shy side and more of a
listener than a talker. Well, until you get me debating about
stuff. I have a dark sense of humor and I am sarcastic. Also,
although I grew up in the north east I do not have a strong
I spend a lot of time cooking and I like to make food for my
friends. I am currently reinventing and idiot proofing a lot of my
recipes to fit my vegetarian lifestyle. Even as I write this I am
enjoying a homemade toasted hazelnut milk, cacao and avocado
smoothie. Actually, I am now thinking of going Vegan as I am
practically one already.
In my down time, I spend a lot of fencing and I plan to do more! It
is a sport, where you can legally stab people and how can one not
love a sport like that. :P I am going to get my own equipment very
soon which means I can start entering competitions.
And, this should go without saying but, I like anything history
related since I did my degrees in the subject.
I do not use my phone often as I have massive hands which means
texting takes ages and I have phone anxiety. Therefore, I do not
call people often or for long periods of time.
Oh yes, one last thing, I save spiders and will not kill them. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working at Sunderland University Library as a
part-time library assistant. I am volunteering at Crook Hall,
Durham Cathedral and Mining institute in Newcastle. I am trying to
get toned, so I am exercising more and more these days. Other than
fencing, I play squash and I am training for a marathon. I play
guitar and the violin. I am ok, but, I am very much still a
beginner. I am also learning French but I need spend more studying
it. Oh, I paint and draw too. I plan on doing my PhD and possibly
another MA at some point. I intend on moving away, possibly to
mainland Europe to continue my education but we shall see.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at fencing, photography, cookery, history, listening,
keeping people warm and a few other things. I loved to be
challenged and get bored if there is a lack of chaos/excitement in
my life. Hence, why I turn my hand to so many things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, there is a in-joke between my friends where they have
become sentient and evil!
