Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

  • I used to be a member of the Young Magicians Club (the youth initiative of the Magic Circle) – I even get reduced Magic Circle fees for the first year of membership if I applied (was seconded and passed the audition) – never going to happen lol :D!
  • I’m incredibly shy and awkward in any kind of social situation – I’m far happier at home with a book, TV or computer for company. It’s also one of the reasons I’ve never attended a blogger event *ashamed face*
  • I am learning to play piano (music from the musical, Wicked (you’re noticing a theme aren’t you? hehe) at the moment along with some 8 bar pieces from Czerny which are actually quite addictive)
  • I have a first class honours degree in Multimedia Computing from the University of the West of England, Bristol

  1. I’m the same as you – I’m incredibly awkward in social situations and I’m way happier at home with a good book or a tv show then out in town. 🙂 #nerdsunite
