Some of you might have noticed – or maybe not, who knows? – that I have very little personal information on this blog. I’ve occasionally mentioned university, that I work on the side, and, the most obvious thing, that I have a history of mental illness, but that’s pretty much it.
If you’ve ever visited my Home Page and read the ‘Welcome’ post there, you’ll know that I started this blog to share my writing and step out of my comfort zone. That being said, posting details about myself on here is a little too far out of my comfort zone. For now, anyway.
But then I thought it might be pretty weird for readers to not know anything about me. How can I expect people to engage with my writing if I don’t engage back? So that’s why I’m going to post some facts about me here. Nothing too crazy or personal, but just enough to give you an idea about who I am.
So here we go!
I study English and Creative Writing at a university in the UK.
I’m hoping to study an MA in Journalism.
I’ve struggled with my mental health on and off since I was 14. I’m now 22.
I have been diagnosed with panic disorder, depression and OCD.
I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan (books and films), and have two Harry Potter related tattoos.
My favourite singer is Taylor Swift.
I’ve always wanted to write and publish a novel.
I love Disney. I can’t decide which film is my favourite: The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast.
I’m addicted to caffeine.
I’m a dog person.
The place I want to visit most is New York City.
I like listening to sad music when I’m feeling down.
So there you go – some bits and pieces about me. It’s mostly superficial stuff, I know, but you’ve got to start somewhere! I’m hoping to reveal more as my time with this blog goes on, but this will do for now!
Can anyone relate to anything on my little list?
