I’m a twenty-something traveler, singer, writer, cat lover, lawyer, DIY-er, behavioural psychologist, dreamer, charity event manager, baker, adventurer, reader…
When I was four years old, I decided I wanted to be a writer. I even had several books ‘published’ in my junior school library. Then, I grew up, and decided I needed to pursue a ‘sensible’ (re: steady income) career. Six years, and two degrees (law and psychology) later, I’m still a grown up, but have realised that four-year-old me might have had the right idea after all…
Nowadays, I’m slowly trying to find a way to make money doing something I love, rather than spending my life at a desk wishing I was somewhere else. If I can find a way to make money writing and travelling, I’ll be one happy chappy. In the meantime, I’m trying to make some money selling cupcakes and handmade goodies. I don’t really have a ‘plan’, which is something that really annoys my parents, who I still live with while I’m looking for my way.
There’s more to me, I assure you. You can click here to read some more about me, otherwise I’ll leave you to discover that for yourselves as you peruse the rabbit hole that is Annabel & Alice.
Alice is not, as you may expect, a friend of mine who will be blogging alongside me. Rather, she is a forever young girl, created by Charles Dodgson – a man you may know as Lewis Carroll – and known mostly for her travels in a place called ‘Wonderland’.
Not only did Alice navigate the confusing and non-sensical Wonderland with only a few vague hints from a rabbit with a pocket watch and a caterpillar smoking a hookah, but she did so with a healthy dose of imagination, logic, and sense of adventure.
Her story is one of literature, and childhood, with a touch of crazy. She also finds time to enjoy tea and cake along her way. She intrigues me. She also inspires me. This young girl is full of the very things that so many grown ups have lost. By sharing my blog with Alice, I’m sure she’ll keep me in line – make sure I don’t go getting too grown up for my own good. Also, she has a pretty good track record of making her way through the unknown and coming out the other side relatively unscathed. With my current lack of direction, I think it would do me good to follow her lead while I work out where I need to go.
