Okay, so these kind of posts have been floating around for a while. But as this blog is sort of new-ish, I thought - why not?
1 - I was born on the summer solstice. ☀️
Yep, my birthday is the longest day of the year and almost slap bang in the middle of summer - 21st June. I believe there is a lot of astrological significance to this - it's also the day of the year that people celebrate the sunrise at Stone Henge because the sun is in line with the stones. I'm not huge on horoscopes, but it puts me right on the cusp between Gemini and Cancer (personally I've always identified as a gemini shhh...).
2 - I live a vegan and cruelty free lifestyle. 🍃
To the best of my ability and knowledge, anyway. I don't believe that anything can be 100% of either, but I try to be honest and kind about the choices I make and the products that I buy.
3 - I'm a Potterhead. ⚡️
From the age of seven I grew up reading and listening to the Harry Potter series, and I still do now. The series is so special to me, and I find so much meaning in it. Hermione inspired me to do well in school, Harry encouraged me to be brave and Ron taught me the value of family and friendship. Right now I am re-reading the seventh book, and it is so dark and just... all the tears...😢
4 - I love journalling. 📖
My journal is my lifeline and I love it so very much. I've been journalling or a few years now, but a few months ago I also started a bullet journal where I keep track of goals, ideas, appointments, health, and emotions. It's also a place for me to be creative and to not to hide. I thoroughly recommend starting a journal or a bullet journal to everyone. Seriously. Give it a go.
5 - I play video games. 🕹
Not very well, mind you, but I've always been a sucker for games that are open world, city building or very story led. I adore Pokemon, Skyrim, City Skylines, Fallout 4, The Sims and so many more. I'm not the greatest at them, and my attention span for them can be a bit rocky, but sometimes spending a few hours in a different world is so relaxing.
That's it! Thank you for reading. If there is ever anything you'd like to know about photography, or a particular post that you'd like to see please do let me know :
