On the off chance that you’ve found my little digital sphere, welcome! This isn’t my first foray into the world of blogging (my other attempts tended to fall by the wayside rather quickly) but this is the first time that I’ve decided to write about anything and everything that tickles my fancy (the reason that I tended to get bored of my previous blogging excursions was that I was attempting to have a focus – turns out, I like to talk about more than one thing).

If you’re interested, stay tuned for my ramblings on movies, books, food, travel and general life thoughts.

To get us started, here’s a little bit about me.

I’m 21.

I’m from Cape Town, South Africa but both my parents and my entire extended family is Northern Irish. Plus, I’m currently attending university in England and I tend to watch too much American TV. Hence, I have a slightly confused accent.

I’m studying for a BA in history. Don’t ask me what I’m going to do with it – I just love history and am that glad I’m getting a degree at all (it has to come in handy at some point, right?)

I love to read, however I am highly susceptible of falling into the trap of spending my weekends and evenings binge watching TV series on Netflix. I also love to cook and play around with different recipes and techniques. If you were holding me at gun point and forcing me to pick one cuisine to live on forever, I would probably have to pick Italian food (risotto, pizza, pasta… seriously, it can’t be beaten).

If there is a dog nearby, I find it absolutely necessary to comment on how cute it is and go say hello. Every time.

Nothing relaxes me like a good cooking show.

I am always very behind on what is popular and trending. If a song is big right now, I will probably have heard it by next year sometime. This usually means that my excitement over my new discovery is met by confused stares as everyone else is over it already.

And last but not least, I love the idea of blogging. I love that I can occupy a small space on the internet where I can write about whatever I want. I love that I have somewhere to express my excitement about the last book I read or reflect on my feelings about a life event. I get to write for myself but put it somewhere other than a file on my desktop that will inevitably get too full and overwhelming to deal with. I like my little space. It feels good.
