My self-summary
So, me.

I'm in my twenties, I've recently graduated from Hertfordshire Uni after studying English Literature and Creative Writing for 3 years.

I like to learn new things all the time, so I have racked up some certificates over the years; City and Guilds award in Beginners Photography (I still very much like going out with my camera), Beginners British Sign Language (which I'm sad to say I've forgotten a lot of) and NVQ Level 1 Professional Catering. The last one was supposed to be career forming, but I've found I just love cooking and baking as a hobby.

I like the usual stuff; watching tv, reading, films, going out with my friends whenever they want to do something.

I also enjoy baking, a lot. It's my obsession, which my friends enjoy a lot as they tell me that what I bake tastes nice.

I like to try my hand at photography every now and again, but I tend to talk myself out of taking my camera out as I don't want to break it or annoy people with it.

So that's me in a nutshell, really.
What I’m doing with my life
Having tried combining my hobby of baking with work, I found it didn't suit me, so for now I am back in retail, trying to figure out exactly it is I want to do with my life. And how to do it.

Other than that, as I said, I spend my time baking, reading, watching films or hanging out with my friends.
I’m really good at
Hmmm, really good?

I guess my friends would say Baking! Hah, I've mentioned that a lot, but as I've also said, it's a slight obsession of mine right now and they tell me i'm good at it. I've done 2 wedding cakes for friends and friends of the family and I have another one coming up next year, so people seem to think I'm good enough to entrust me in making the cake for the big day. (It's f-ing scary.)

I'm also good at listening to people, i spend a lot of my time being a sounding board for people's problems and ideas, and occassionally trying to help them out if I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite quiet until I get to know someone, I'm not too good at the initial meeting. You would probably categorise me as shy.

Also, I'm rather short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite books change depending on what mood I'm in but I have a few that I will always go back to for comfort, you could say. These are any of the David Eddings series of fantasy books, 'Year of Wonders' by Geraldine Brooks, sad but interesting and also, sadly , the Harry Potter books. More recently and thanks to my best friend, Patricia Briggs books, especially the Mercy Thompson series. Amazing books.

Films; Again, depends on my mood but there are a few that I will rewatch again and again. Such films include 'Imagine Me and You', Moulin Rouge', 'V for Vendetta', 'The Princess Bride', etc. I'm rather fond of foreign language films, Studio Ghibli anytime, 'I've Loved You So Long' is really good, Guillermo Del Toro films as well, though they're creepier, so I watch them less.

Music; Well, now, I like most things, but let me think, what have I been listening to recently? Regina Spektor is awesome, Coheed and Cambria, i've rediscovered The Cranberries, and Tegan and Sara. I also love most musical soundtracks. And, on a less cool note, I like folk music, and it all started with Seth Lakeman. I think I just like the stories that get told in the songs.

Food? Weird question, but I have to say I have a sweet tooth. I'm not too fussy when it comes to savoury food, i'll eat most things, except raw tomatoes and I'm a bit fussy about fish, but apart from that I don't overly care.
I love waffles. And have deliberately not bought a waffle iron for fear I would cook nothing else.
Six things I could never do without
1. Music, namely my iPod. I always have it with me if there's a chance I will have to walk home or sit on my own for a bit.

2. My pets. 2 dogs and a cat, Apollo, Misty and Pixel, respectively. I love animals and while Misty is a bit of a handful she's only a year old and I wouldn't want to do without any of them.

3. Books. Life would be so dull if I couldn't read. It's the only way I get through Sundays at work.

4. Baking. There's nothing like baking to work out some frustration. Especially bread. =D

5. The internet. I don't spend as much time on it as I used to but it fills a gap. Mostly with webcomics.

6. Coffee/Tea. Caffeine basically, but this is the best tasting way of getting my caffeine fix.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Baking, whatever film I've just watched, usually there's a tune running through my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm my own worst critic.
You should message me if
Any of the above sounds interesting.
