I’ve had this site for a long bloody time now (15 years) and it’s variously either been full of pish or silent. A bit like me, really. Things that I am are 40, female, tomboy, PhD student, wanderer and hoarder of books.
In my life, I’ve somehow managed to live in Philadelphia, rural France, Scotland and London. I’ve been variously lucky and unlucky. I’ve worked with famous musicians and with carpenters (still do, actually). Mainly I value people who make things and I try to do the same: I make clothes and collages and chapters for my thesis. Other things I love are: practising Muay Thai, racing cars through cities on my bicycle, and my ancient, cancer-ridden cat.
Post-PhD life dreams include: dying and being reborn as a puppy shoved up Tom Hardy’s jumper, riding a motorbike across America in a white leather vintage racing suit, ending the tyranny of monolingualism, getting a job, and leaving this shite island permanently.
