I’m Beth, I’m 23 and I’m still kinda figuring everything out (but then I guess so is everybody).
Some things about me:
- I’m a graduate of Victoria University, with a BA(Hons) in History. I wrote my Honours thesis on a book this dope medieval French woman wrote in 1405 (The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan, if you’re interested). I live in Wellington, which has been my home for five years now.
- Writing, fiction or otherwise, is something I’ve always been into. I love to write short stories (if ‘love’ is the right word; I write mostly sad stories, because I am interested in exploring the darker parts of being human, but because of that writing short stories doesn’t really make me happy, exactly). I don’t write fiction very often though. These days most of my writing happens here on my blog.
- This blog is my little space on the Internet. I started it when I was just beginning to recover from two years of suffering with a pretty serious anxiety disorder. In the beginning I mainly talked about mental illness and my recovery progess. It was a way to explain to my friends and family what I went through, and also a way for me to raise awareness of mental illness. Now I want it to encompass more of my world, not just my mental health journey. I want to blog more about my life, my interests and all the things that I experience.
