20 Facts About Me!!

Having received quite the following over on Twitter lately, I thought I owed it to my new blog readers (over 300 of you!!!) to write a lil 20 Facts About Me. I hope you enjoy this insight into my life, and do let me know if we share anything in common.
  1. Born and raised in Staffordshire, England. A bit boring, really.
  2. I now study English and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham.
  3. I am this year’s editor-and-chief for my university’s Her Campus chapter, an online magazine for university women. It was founded by Harvard students, which is pretty cool.
  4. I am an avid theatre goer and have seen numerous performances at the West End and regional theatres (very lucky!) I’ve been privileged enough to assistant direct for a couple of shows for the Nottingham New Theatre — but I’m not much of a performer! (I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at it).
  5. After university, I want to do a masters in Broadcast Journalism.
  6. Off the back of this, my dream occupation is to be a journalist (hopefully) working in the television industry.
  7. I’m a major Harry Potter fan. I’ve been to the studio tour in London a couple of times and to the theme park in Florida.
  8. My favourite Harry Potter character is Luna Lovegood
  9. If you’re wondering what house I’m in, I would say Ravenclaw (proudly so!), but I see traits of both Gryffindor AND Ravenclaw within me. I guess that technically makes me a Gryffinclaw.
  10. I believe that if I’m determined enough, I will get to where I want to be. Determination is everything. I could write an entirely different blogpost on this mindset, if you like.
  11. I believe in being ‘other-centric’; again, another blogpost may be required to explain this.
  12. I’m 100% a cats over dogs kinda gal (pls don’t be mad).
  13. I’m the biggest Taylor Swift fan EVER: favourite songs include Dear John, Long Live & anything Speak Now era. I’ve seen her live three times: Red tour, 1989 & Reputation.
  14. I have an ever-growing literature collection. Basically, if you ever find yourself wanting to borrow a book, I’m your girl!
  15. My favourite genre of film is fantasy.
  16. I’ve never been to a private/boarding school: just your regular, non-selective state school.
  17. I didn’t drink alcohol or go out clubbing until university.
  18. I have quite severe joint hyper-mobility syndrome.
  19. I also have scoliosis.
  20. I love to write and my pipe dream is to write a novel one day.
