I always find ‘About Me’ pages quite difficult to write. The things I think are important indicators of who I am as a person may not reflect what someone else wants to know about me. In everyday life when we meet someone new, we don’t go off on a long-winded epilogue about ourselves – well, okay, some people do – that’s not the norm. We meet someone new and introduce a very basic version of ourselves, giving details we feel are key to who we are at that moment in time.
My name is Dina and I am 28 years old. I live in Brighton with my partner Shane but grew up in Ireland. I have a BA in Sociology with a minor in Psychology and recently made the decision to leave full-time work to start my own venture. My hobbies include daydreaming, people watching and drinking large quantities of tea. I suffer from what I like to call ‘A little black rain cloud’, but what most people refer to as depression. I have the attention span of a small child and I want to be best friends with every dog I meet.
This blog is first and foremost for myself. Writing is a sort of therapy for me, and I have kept a journal since I was very young. This is a space for me write about anything and everything. My little black rain cloud, living in Brighton, the new book I’m reading or the new jumper I am knitting. If anybody else finds it interesting or helpful then even better.
