About Me

"The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man
knows himself to be a fool."

I find there is no place more atmospheric than the wild moorland of the north country. "This is certainly a beautiful country! In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society."

I've just finished sixthform where I studied English Literature, English Language and French. As may be obvious from my choice of A Levels, I love languages and using language to write poetry and stories. I also adore reading. My favourite writers are Emily Bronte and Will Shakespeare. I love Tennyson's poetry too. I have a passion for theatre and would one day like to write a play.

As I have such a great passion for the classics, I tend to focus my writing on them and the writers who wrote them. Or my writing is simply inspired by them, but at the same time is very personal. I acknowledge that this is an extremely risky and daring thing to do, and most of the time I fall way short of the mark. But this is what drives me and always has done, along with a sheer love of writing. Perhaps the best way of explaining it is that literature and I are joint together, simply inseparable.

I am always in need of criticism as, although I utterly adore writing, I know I am not the strongest of writers. I am always striving to improve and hope that one day my writing may be relatively enjoyable.

Not only do I write and read, I have been dancing from the age of three, and playing the piano from the age of five. They are two things I adore. I find that music and dance are two other ways I can express myself. I can put my love of literature and telling stories into them both. My prefered form of dance is ballet, especially dancing en pointe, as it's so beautiful, but I also perform and enjoy lyrical, modern, tap, some Latin and Ballroom, Irish, Hungarian, Russian, Polish, and contemporary. I enjoy playing a variety of stuff on the piano. My favourites are classical (particularly from the ballets), music from the films, and Coldplay.

I also have many other interests, most of which inspire me to write. I love sports, particularly football, rugby, cricket, and above all tennis. I find the intensity of tennis absolutely amazing and also it reminds me a little of ballet, watching players such as Federer gliding around the court. My two favourite players are Rafa Nadal and Richard Gasquet, and being a Brit I have a soft spot for Andy Murray. I support Liverpool F.C. in football, and the classy Stevie Gerrard is my favourite player. I find that the amount of passion these sports people put into their game really encourages me to put the same amount of passion into what I love most. Other things I am interested in are philosophy, religion, politics, the environment, parts of science, and other cultures.

Favourite quotes:

"To be, or not to be: that is the question."

"Why b*****d? Wherefore base?"

"Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."

"My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I AM Heathcliff!"

"I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind."

Emily Bronte
Jane Austen
Anne Bronte

Thanks for the awesome review!!!!

Don't worry about Hamlet; I'll tell you know that he'll be okay. I think if they both survived the play, they would both have had to apologize to eachother for the mistakes they made. That's a pretty big part of it in my take.

Really? I've always found her intriguing too! I'd like to hear more about that drowning death ^^. I... don't believe Ophelia killed herself. There's been some speculations that Gertrude actually threw her in the river... and frankly, I'd like to believe that.

g2g, but I'd like to discuss more! ^^

Classics? As in older books? Not very many. I have read popular books such as The Catcher in the Rye ( I loved it but it wasn't what i was expecting it to be), The Perks of Being a Wallflower ( I loved it too, I read it in one day), To Kill a Mocking Bird (I read it in school but I liked it).

A few days ago I finished reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. I know its somewhat of a childish book but I never truely got the whole story. I have seen so many different versions of Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass that I truely wanted to get the real story. I got it in an antique shop, that's what made me want to read it aswell. On the inside it has writing that says "xmas 1948 grandma". I went crazy knowing it was from 1948. I found it odd that there was no copy right nor indication when it was published. I guess it's just that old.

What type of stuff do you enjoy reading?
