Like you, I read a LOT of blogs. Every Sunday, I settle down with a cup of coffee and some sort of French baked good in front of me and go through my Bloglovin’ feed catching up on the virtual lives of bloggers all around the world.
This week was no different except I came across a blog by Cat at Oddly Lovely that was a great inspiration. In it, she details ‘If we were friends grabbing coffee…’ then a collection of anecdotes that happened during her week. Credit where credit is due, this struck me as a great feature and so different to all the listicles and advice articles I’d normally see. It was a great way of getting to know her a little more, as a person.
It hit me that I’m guilty of saying what I’ve done in a week on here but not necessarily sharing a whole lot about myself, which to me, is what a good blog does. It’s like what I said in my ‘New Year’ post, My Little Tale needs to go back to being a bit more like a journal, somewhere I can look back over my life and form friendships with other bloggers.
With that in mind, I’m going to start a new series, ‘If we weren’t strangers‘. Each week, I’ll share 5 things about myself that are ‘big’ or ‘small’ that’ll hopefully show you more of what I’m like behind this virtual facade. A bit like when people used to send around those quizzes on myspace or MSN Messenger…
So, here we go…
– One of my all time favourite films is 500 Days of Summer. It’s simple really, it’s the amazing soundtrack, the chemistry between Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the way in which it so perfectly describes being duped by songs and life in general, into the idea of ‘the one’.
– I used to work in a coffee shop, Caffe Nero to be precise, therefore like every other barista in the world, I now have a pronounced coffee addiction. It’s satisfied at least 5 times a day with a caffeine-heavy vanilla latte and a smile.
– One of the things I love doing most in the world, is visiting museums and art galleries. When I was at uni in London, I used to do this so much more and I really miss it. I love the feeling of walking amongst history and feeling inspired by those people in the present and the past. They also normally have amazing cafes (at a good price) and smell like an old library – perfect.
– I really miss Roller Derby. Since moving to Ifield and away from both Croydon and Shoreham, I am not anywhere near a team or somewhere to train so it’s put me at a bit of a loss. My foot surgery didn’t exactly help either but I long to get back into a team and do some damage! (heehee).
– I’ve dyed my hair pretty much every colour imaginable apart from green. This is only because when I asked a hairdresser as a teenager whether they could do it, they told me I’d look like a witch. #scarredforlife
Anyway, let me know your thoughts and if it’s worth doing so then I’ll be writing one of these every week!
