Who am I?

Damn it, I’ve always been bad at this kind of thing. I always hated those first laboratory and tutorial classes at uni where you had to go around and tell everyone: (1) your name (2) what you’re studying and (3) whatever third random thing the tutor came up with to ‘break the ice’ as it were. I hated them. I’m not good at talking about myself. So you know what, I’m gonna combine all the ice breaker parts I can remember from my uni classes and add in some extra facts of my own.

I’m Erin.

I’m a twenty three year old female queer* Australian.

I’m studying an online Bachelor of Internet Communications and Professional Writing and Publishing.

If I were a kitchen utensil I’d be a whisk.

When I was six I wanted to be James Bond.

I can bake the most amazing chocolate chip cookies.

When I was seven I wanted to be an astronaut until I found out it was nothing like Star Trek.

If I could have any superpower it would be either flight or telekinesis.

I could be any superhero I would be Captain Marvel. Or Iron Man. I’d be a rockin’ Iron Man.

I had blue hair for about four months. Then I had pink hair for two.

One place I would love to travel to would be Galway Bay in Ireland, where my family comes from.

I really really want a cat. I want him to be grey and white and I would name him Galahad after my favourite Arthurian knight.

A language I would love to learn would be Gaelic or Russian.

Cleaning is relaxing to me.

I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue.

My favourite food is lasagne.

I only have one piercing in each ear but I have two tattoos.

I like tea.

I’m writing a book series. It’s fantasy.

I prefer ice cream over chocolate.

I suffer from social anxiety disorder.

I work at a discount chemist. I hate it.

My favourite book is a tie between The Lord of the Rings (and yes, it is one novel, it was originally published as one novel, I will fight you on this) and Catch-22.

I find it too difficult to pick a favourite movie, I love too many.

My favourite TV show is a tie between Supernatural and the original Star Trek.

If I could be anything in the world I would be a WWE Superstar.

And with that, I have revealed as much random, useless information about me as I could and also my most secret dream and craziest ambition. So, yeah. Come enjoy the next couple of years with me as I try to figure all of this out.

LLAP, Erin xx
