My answers to the questions above:
Tell me something about this world that you admire.
I think it would have to be the kindness people are capable of. Obviously there are some people who don’t fit into this, but I generally admire the levels of empathy people are capable of and what people will do to show you they care. Even simple things can make a world of difference and, especially with the pandemic, it’s lovely to see people coming together.
What is your favorite form of creativity?
Definitely writing! It’s been a passion of mine for so many years now, and I plan on pursuing it at university next year – if I can get in! Fingers crossed, haha.
Something I created:
Honestly, my blog is probably the best example of that.
My answers to Eri’s questions:
Which was that one moment of your life that made you feel extremely happy and why?
That’s really tough to pinpoint – I’m lucky enough to have had lots of happy memories! I think one stand out one for me would be just the other day, at a university open day. I really loved what I saw and it’s definitely a firm contender!
Why did you start blogging and why do you continue doing so?
I’d actually been thinking about starting a blog months before I finally did, so that’s an interesting question. When I started thinking about writing my personal statement (which is currently still being edited) I realised I really needed something to add that would make me stand out… And that gave me an excuse to start my blog!
Even though I’ve only been blogging for just over five months I’ve truly grown to love it, and I love sharing my two passions on here. I can’t imagine myself giving it up now – although there’s a lot of work (looking at you, twitter) involved it’s so rewarding and I love writing and planning my content for everyone. There’s nothing else like it!
If you had the power to change one thing in this world what would that be and why?
That’s a tough one – there are some many possible answers for this! I would probably have to go for getting rid of war, though, as it leads to some many other problems in turn. War is definitely one thing everyone could do without – it leads to so many innocent people suffering and dying.
If you could, would you change something from your past?
No. Although there are some things I’ve done which I’m not proud of, I still wouldn’t go back and change them. Making those decisions has made me who I am today and I’m generally in a pretty good place now, and I wouldn’t want to change that.
