Welcome to my blog, The Storyteller. I hope you have enjoyed what you have read so far, so now is the part when I tell you a little bit more about me.
My name is Janet, I am a 20 year old English Literature student from Devon, England. I started my blog back in the good old days of 2010 (I think?), but I only really got into blogging in 2011. This space has changed a lot in that time- it’s gone through a few name changes, but I decided to go with The Storyteller because I’ve been told by too many people that when I talk about something, I can captivate the audience… so basically, I talk a lot. I don’t like missing out the details so I think that makes me a pretty good storyteller… right?
In September 2015 I started studying English with American Literature at the University of Winchester, and so far it has been great. I can’t wait to see what sort of opportunities will arise and where my course will take me in the future. (Hopefully somewhere amazing!)
So what sort of thing are you supposed to look out for here? I mostly write “university advice” posts, because I will be writing about my experiences as I go through university, and basically everything that I learn I will be writing about them here. My motto for my time at university is “make it up as you go along”, so you’ll definitely see how that goes in my posts, if you choose to stick around! However, I like to write about anything and everything, including reviews, my thoughts on world events, and other things that interest me!
At some point I want to grow up and live in the real world, but for now I’m just going to continue to be a professional day-dreamer, who dreams of a life as a celebrity and being best friends with Johnny Depp… On a serious note, I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I think I’d make a good journalist, but I don’t know what type of journalist. Also, I want to travel around the world and the one place I must, must, must go to before I die is South America (Peru, if we’re being specific). The food looks amazing, but I have to actually see it for myself. (My dad thinks I’ve gone crazy.)
I also have a YouTube Channel where I have recently started vlogging again (I tried about three years ago and gave up because A-levels got in the way) so make sure you subscribe there if you want to see more of what I get up to!
Finally, I am part of The Feministas, a group of bloggers from around the world who want to share their views on equality with others, so if you want to check that out as well, I would be very grateful!
So those are the basics about me, and I hope you enjoy my blog!
