Blogtober #4 // A-Z of Me

Hello Spookies! I thought today I'd do an A-Z of me post! I loved reading Jemma's and really wanted to do my own. So go forth and take an alphabetised look into the weirdo who writes the blog.

A - Animals - This is a pretty darn obvious place to start. I love every animal. Animals are pretty much my life and protecting them is what I want to dedicate my life to.

B - Boyfriend - I met my boyfriend Freddie when I was 16 and we've been together ever since. He had me at the first time he smiled at me, and 4 and a half years later, I can't imagine life without him. He's the bees knees really.

C - Cashew Nuts - I'm allergic to these. In a life-threatening way. So keep your cashews away from me thank you.

D - Dance - I used to dance as a hobby until spine problems and studying got in the way and since quitting, I've become really unfit. I'd love to start again because I miss it so much!

E - Emo - I never really stopped being an emo kid, did I?

F - Feminism - I first learned about feminism during sixth form college and it's become something so important to me, and something I will always stand up for.

G - Gothic - I love all things gothic. I love gothic architecture, gothic fashion, gothic decor, gothic horror. I love it.

H - Hello Kitty - I love all things cute and adorable and I've been collecting Hello Kitty merchandise for a long long time. I have a lot of Hello Kitty stuff.

I - Itchiness - Having eczema is hard, okay?

J - Japan - I love Japanese culture and I used to take Japanese lessons.

K - Koalas - Freddie calls me his Koala. He's my eucalyptus tree.

L - Liverpool - It's always been my closest city and I now I live here. I'm so proud of Liverpool and all of the history and culture we have here.

M - My Chemical Romance - They have always been, and always will be, my favourite band. I'm still not over the breakup. Sob.

N - Notepads. I'm a stationery hoarder. Stationery is amazing. There's nothing like using a new pen, on new paper. Agh.

O - Ormskirk - I did my undergraduate degree in Ormskirk and as much as I love doing my Masters - I definitely miss Edge Hill University so very much.

P - Politics - I was raised political and I am political. Heck, my first name in part was inspired by the founder of the Labour party. I've been passionate about politics from a very early age and nothing bugs me more than people dismissing my opinions because of my age.

Q - Quinoa - This word makes me giggle because someone I love just can not pronounce it. At all. Also I just wanted to name a random food somewhere in here so I can talk about how much I love vegan cooking. Put me in the kitchen with fresh ingredients and I'm happy as a clam.

R - Rights. Animal Rights. Human Rights. If your rights are being violated then I'm almost definitely angry about it.

S - Spooky - I love Halloween. I love horror. I love ghosts. I love all things spooky. In every way. I can't even explain how into spooky things I am.

T - Tattoos. Freddie has tattoos and I love them. I want to have my own one day but my parents make me feel really guilty about it (they hate them) and I'd love to be more body confident before I get my own - I'd hate to dislike something I'd wanted for ages because I hadn't accepted the body part it was on.

U - Unique - I feel very lucky that even when I went through bullying, I had an amazing family that encouraged me to embrace my uniqueness and not compromise myself for anyone else. Sometimes I stick out like a sore thumb, sometimes I look like a halloween decoration, and that's cool.

V - Veganism - Veganism is a huge huge part of my life and identity and something I'm very proud of. I'm always so happy when people want to ask questions or talk about it!

W - Winter - Autumn and winter are my favourite times of year. I love the holidays. I love the dark evenings. I'm a cold weather kinda gal. Scarves and jumpers and warm drinks and rain and Halloween and Christmas! It's just the best.

X - X-Rays - X-Rays are really cool. My mum recently found a chest X-Ray she had when she was younger and I'm going to hang it up in my flat.

Y - Youtube - I really must start making videos again because I have so much to say that wouldn't come across the way I want in writing. Someone kick me up the butt.

Z - Zoos - One of the modules of my Masters Degree is Zoos and Conservation and it's something I'm eager to know more about. I really want to learn about the ethics of zoos as I'm unsure on my stance. I'm against captivity as a general rule but if it's going to save a species then is it worth it? Do zoos save species? What if they improved their enclosures? I have so many questions before I form an opinion so I just don't know.

On that slightly heavy note, I'm off. Hope you enjoyed having a nose into my interests!


  1. I love the type of blog posts where you get to know a little bit more of the inside of people. I may have to steal this blog post idea and do an A-Z of my own if that's okay? πŸ’‹πŸ’•
