About Me




All I want to do is travel and gain new experiences/friends. Currently studying for a TESOL/Psyc degree, but as soon as I am done I am out of here!!


To be happy! I believe in taking things as they come and making the most of life. This doesn't mean sitting around on your ass waiting for opportunities to land in your lap though, I believe that if you want something you should go out and get it.


History - experiencing new cultures and learning their histories is high on my priority list (right after my linguistics homework). I love reading, art, coffee and just generally wandering around with my head in the clouds (which is often literal when you live on a hill in Wellington).
Food - I love cooking, baking, eating and as my upbringing apparently dictates drinking!

Music, Movies, and Books

I LOVE music. You will rarely find me without some form of music playing. Genre speaking I will listen to pretty much everything.
Reading is a big passion of mine especially the classics - Jane Austen is my favourite author. Books also featuring in my well read pile are Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Les Miserables.
