About Me: I love...

Taking a quick glance over my 'About Me' page, I realised I have never elaborated my loves and my hates. SO here goes, an elaborated version of my loves. 




Music
Both the playing and the listening. I have been musical since year 3 when wee reached the age to start recorder club at school. I progressed to the treble recorder, joined choir then started learning the clarinet by Year 5. I had the same clarinet teacher right up until I left sixth form, so he saw it all. The toddler tantrums, the tomboy stage, the 'I don't care' stage, the exams, the boyfriend, the leaving home. At uni I kept playing in band and was on the Music Society committee for 2 years aswell as starting the Ukulele and Choir. So music has been with me for a long time. I have made some of my best friends, been to some fab places and have of course developed a bit of a skill!

The Sea
I've always lived close to the sea, and never really ralised how much I missed it until I moved to a University inland. While at uni, I did a lot of nautically stuff and a lot of work on ships, which made a fundamental part of my uni experience. Again my best friends come from that experience and I went to some fab places; Scotland, Belgium, The Netherlands.

In fact, due to this being a scheduled post, tomorrow I will be (hopefully, if all on my travels is going to plan) be departing a hut in the middle of the Jungle for this beaut of a place. Koh Tao. Please don't hate me!

Crafting
There is nothing more satisfying than making something from scratch, and handmade stuff makes the nicest gifts. I stopped crafting at uni but since I have become a child at home once more, I can tap into mums resources. Mwah Ha Ha Ha. 

Geography
My one true passion in life. Ever since a Year 3 (bit of a year 3 pattern here, impressionable age!) project on St Lucia I fell in love with places, a spark of Wanderlust was lit and before long BOOM! There I was at uni doing the subject I loved. Even my ex got jealous at points over my love for my subject. No jokes. I would have dated geography if I could. To be honest, the frequent late night library visits, coffees over volcanic textbooks and heated arguments with my assignments sure felt like a real romance!

If Geography were a man he'd be: understanding, like human geographies; fun and exciting, like tectonics; trustworthy, like the World Health Organisation website (or that's what we learnt!) ; well rounded, like pebbles on an eroded beach; keen for adventure, like a field trip; not totally stuck in their ways, like development geography and finally; caring, like ecology.

  1. Yey for geography - i'm a former uni geographer too those were fun times for sure! Everyone forgets how important geography is in every day life, it's taken for granted far too often!
