Here is my updated ‘about me’, I hope you guys find me as interesting as I do.
My name is Kathryn and I’m a 22 year old (I want to say girl but should I say woman? Ew) from Sydney, Australia. I’m a self proclaimed extrovert but when it comes to talking about myself I really don’t know how to go about it, so lets see how this goes.
I’m the youngest of 5 along with my twin sister (not identical), I have 4 dogs who are all my babies. I work two jobs currently, one is as an Administrative & Marketing Assistant and the other is as a waitress. I’m a recent graduate who is now just trying to work and earn money so that I can comfortably transition into a lower paying graduate job. My goal is to become a marketing professional and work for a big brand company, I won’t say my first choice only because I still believe the whole ‘if you say it out loud it wont come true’ myth that was drilled in at birthdays from a young age.
My favourite books are probably the Harry Potter series, they’re just timeless and I feel that they appeal to all ages. I’ve read all the books three times so far since I was maybe in year 6 and every time I read them it’s mainly been because I haven’t been able to find a new book to read at that time.
I am however currently reading ‘I built no schools in Kenya’ by Kirsten Drysdale of which I highly recommend if you enjoy a wild ride.
I like to ski in winter and swim in summer (like a lot of people i’m sure) and I am a sucker for a nice cup of tea. I enjoy festivals more than concerts as it’s not as claustrophobic and festivals are a lot more economic.
My favourite festival that i’ve been to in regards to that would have to be Spilt Milk 2017 in Canberra. Lorde headlined and a bunch of my favourite bands played like the Jungle Giants, Winston Surfshirt and What so not. It was the best time with some of my favourite people.
I’m a big advocate for the environment, I do my best to reduce my carbon footprint. I use a keep cup every day, I use a wooden toothbrush, I always bring my own bags for grocery shopping, I very rarely use a plastic straw mainly because I haven’t been able to buy a metal one yet and I donate to environmental organisations.
Saving the planet is something I’ve become very passionate with and one day I hope to work for a not for profit in helping combat effects of climate change and plastic.
That pretty much sums me up, follow me to stay updated on my little adventures xxx
