10 Things about Me

Because thinking of ten things about yourself is actually quite difficult.
  1. I have a MA in Digital Humanities.
  2. I’ve lived in three different countries.
  3. I am a dog person.
  4. I love to read and my favorite genre is Fantasy. It helps me escape.
  5. I live in the UK and still write the American way.
  6. I knit. It helps me manage my anxiety.
  7. My favorite color is purple.
  8. Yes I am a feminist.
  9. My favorite way to unwind is with a cup of tea and a new book. Have I mentioned I love reading?
  10. Chocolate and mint is my favorite flavor combination.
There you have it! Anything you want to know more about?

I’ve never been good at introductions

I’ve spent my life moving every 3 to 5 years to new places and meeting people from all walks of life but I still struggle with introductions. Most likely I overthink it. A simple question. A simple beginning.
Where are you from?
I stumble. I don’t know how to phrase this answer. I’m not from here, nor there. Not in the traditional sense. What do I say?
Oh I’ve moved around a lot. Where are you from?
I deflect. I turn the attention away from me. I should work on an introduction. Where do I begin?
