Who I am:

I am an information enthusiast.

I am a History degree attainer, avid reader, pub quiz frequenter, odd fact collector, overly ambitious baker, occasional fiction writer, regular sitcom watcher, YouTube procrastinator, weird sport attempter (I recommend Muggle Quidditch and Underwater Hockey) and an average Mario Kart racer.

What you can expect from me:

Bet’cha Didn’t Know – I like weird facts. Basically, these blogs will be a collection of bizarre anecdotes and factoids that I find on my travels… As a history graduate, I’ll probably drift towards a lot of historical stuff, but I also love looking into weird science stuff, current affairs, pop culture, etc.

Numerous ramblings – Sometimes I think things about things, and sometimes I write those thinkings down. From the social constructs around ‘casual drinking’ to the role of clickbait online, watch this space for opinion pieces on whatever sparks my interest from the world around me.

Reviews – This will be a bit of untested ground for me, as it’s not something I’ve done a lot of in the past (despite always wanting to… I just haven’t got round to it). I read a lot of books, watch a lot of films/TV shows, visit a lot of cool places, and I just thought it’d be worthwhile jotting a few of my thoughts about those things down.

Attempts at fiction – I love writing fiction but it tends to slip down in my priorities sometimes. I do promise that whenever I’ve got anything good brewing, I’ll pop it up on here for you to all offer some (not too harsh) constructive criticism.
