I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog for a while now. Does anyone care what I've got to say?

Probably not but, if nothing else, at least I can hush some of the chatter in my own mind. There’s no real theme here yet and there probably never will be. Story of my life. *finger guns to camera* 

I was born and raised in Edinburgh before moving to Manchester to study at MMU. In 2016, I graduated with a degree in writing and tv/film. That summer, I finally got to fulfill my dream of traveling and moved to Thailand to teach English in Bangkok. Over the next year or so, I traveled around Asia before returning to Manchester and making a go of it in the tv and film industry. I’d always believed that to be my goal, I’m not sure why. Maybe it has something to do with the extreme pressures placed on us as fourteen-year-olds to make choices about the rest of our lives. Who knows?

Anyway, I went through hell and back to realise that I actually have no idea what I want to do with my life and, more importantly, that it's perfectly normal to feel that way. Currently, I'm in Belgium working as an Au Pair and I still freelance as an ESL teacher for Chinese and Taiwanese students. Mainly though, I just want to try and spread some truth and positivity. Lord knows the world needs it.
