So here goes day 1...

This is me at the street party in Edinburgh at New Year (I'm on the right)

And here are the 15 "interesting" facts about myself...

1. I was born in Sussex (South of England) but have lived most of my life in Scotland. Also for a short time I lived in Cyprus and Germany.

2. I'm quite into politics. In fact, I was one of the 1000 students who travelled down to England for the infamous protests in London (disclaimer, I was a peaceful protester)as well as taking part in the many protests which happened in Edinburgh following that. If you don't know, we were protesting an increase in tuition fees, education cuts, and the abolishment of EMA.

3. Biggest procrastinator you will ever meet.

4. I've got a thing about French films, and anything French really. I know it's corny, and cliché, but when I went to Paris I utterly fell in love with it there. I don't know what it is about it, it's just special.

5. Coffee is a big part of my life.

6. I have a little brother and a little sister. I say little, my brother is almost 17 and my sister is 13.

7. I have just realised that my brother is almost 17 and that is a scary thought.

8. In keeping with age related facts, I turn 21 this year!

9. I go to University in Edinburgh, but not to the University OF Edinburgh. This confuses some people.

10. I love almost all kinds of music. Especially live, nothing beats live music.

11. In the future, I want to work with pharmaceuticals. Hopefully in a lab somewhere, researching new drugs. But I change my mind a lot.

12. I want to learn to speak fluent French one day.

13. I play the piano and drums, a little.

14. I am high disorganised, but am endeavouring to change that.

15. And finally, that's not my natural hair colour! I'm more a mousy-brown.

Ciao x


  1. YES, so glad ur doing this! You should link up so others can read yours too!

    I wish I could play the drums, I want to so bad. But not sure if my landlords upstairs would appreciate that...

  2. yay! So fun that you're playing along too. I can definitely relate to #5. Coffee's a big part of my life, too! :)

    Hey, if you ever want a French pen-pal let me know! I'm fluent, but I don't get a chance to write in French very often and I'd like to make sure I don't lose all my French verbs and grammar.

  3. oh i'm so jealous! i wish i can play drums as well :)

    your blog is lovely ♥
