seven things

Friday, 19 November 2010

I got tagged by the beautiful Helen at Bits and Bobs to divulge seven things about myself, which is definitely a good idea as I've kind of just launched into this blog without saying who I am...

1. I'm a final year Fashion Journalism student at the University for the Creative Arts in Epsom, Surrey. I've had this niggle since the start of my course that I chose the wrong degree (English Literature instead?) but I'm kind of getting into my groove now. I love writing, no matter what it's about, and fashion is just ingrained in me I think, ha.

2. I look like a complete noob in the above picture because I've just been soaked on a rapid-ride but this is probably one of the happiest moments of my life: eating a chocolate frog in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. For those HP cinics or people who don't get it, whatever, and for you HP fanatics out there, I got Godric Gryffindor on my card ;)

3. I hate cotton wool. With a loathing, hard kind of passion.

4. I read like there's no tomorrow. Give me a book, I'll read it. I never understand people who don't enjoy reading, do you? It's such an experience.

5. I have no idea what I want to do in life but my ideal job would be to work for a company who wanted me to travel the world, write what I see and report back. Whether I'm trekking through the Amazon rainforest, canoe-ing it in Vietnam or enjoying some pancakes in America, I want to do it.

6. I want to own a litter of kittens one day and name them after The Jungle Book characters, depending on colours. I also plan to own a pug at some point, if I have the means to look after one. You know you have to clean inside their folds, right? Yuck :)

7. I'm currently writing my dissertation on pin-up culture in the 40s and 50s. I love getting funny looks on the train when people see a book entitled 'FETISH'. All part of the course!

  6. I want to go into Journalism in the future I think. I've opted to go for an English degree and then work from there. So jealous you've been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Aww Jungle Book kittens? That'd be so so cute. Lovely post.
