About Me


to do more things that make me happy :D


hello stranger! if you are reading this, you'll be wanting to know who i am, and what i am here goes.....
the basics:
My name is Amelia, and i am a teacher from england.
I grew up in a village in the beautiful county of hertfordshire
I graduated in july 2011 as a Primary education teacher

Most of the time.... I am clever, kind, a good friend, talkative, sociable, sporty, affectionate, creative and generous.....
but sometimes...I am stupid, grumpy, stubborn, unsociable and selfish
But that is who I am :)

I can cook, play the piano, climb trees, ride a bike, ice skate and rollerskate.

Other stuff:
I lived in Krakow for 2 years and it changed my perspective on everything. I learnt so much, about my self, about the world. Moving there was one of the best decisions I've made. Since September 2013, I have been mainly based in England but am always looking for opportunities to explore a bit more of the world. Right now, I am in Varna, teaching English.


I firmly believe in the power of positive thinking....recent experiences have proved its power :)
