About Me

Hello! I'm Emma and I live in Nottingham where I'm studying Politics at the university. When I was 11 I would definitely have been sorted into Ravenclaw but the older I get, the more I identify with Hufflepuff. I love sending and receiving post and have recently rediscovered Swap Bot after a few years away. I speak English and Spanish fluently. I've been vegan for about 7 years now and enjoy making tasty food with my girlfriend. I love cats but my landlord won't let me have one, so for now I have to make do with lots of plant babies, mainly succulents and spider plants. My sibling lives nearby and has 3 adorable rats who I visit all the time!

If you're a bit late sending me something, I really don't mind, just let me know.

Likes and dislikes

My favourite colours are black and white, and I love polka dots and stripes. I also like mustard yellow, duck egg blue, grey, purple, various blues and greens. I prefer silver to gold. I love anything that's a little weird. I like arty postcards to put on my wall. I like pin badges and embroidered patches. I really like Pusheen the cat and Studio Ghibli. I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer- the TV show and the comics- especially Willow and Tara. I drink fruit, mint and other herbal teas. I'm vegan so don't eat or use anything with milk, egg, gelatine, carmine, beeswax, honey or anything else that comes from animals. I'm UK 5 or EU 38 for socks.

Favorite Books

I'm really into independent comics and graphic novels. My recent favourite is The Tea Dragon Society. My favourite series is Lumberjanes. Other favourites are Nimona, Taproot, Jonesy, Spell on Wheels, Goldie Vance, Help Us! Great Warrior, Adventure Time, Princess Princess Ever After, Cat Vs Human, La Volรกtil. I'm also a big Harry Potter fan; I especially enjoy the audiobooks read by Stephen Fry. I enjoy fantasy novels, classic fiction and also a lot of feminist and political non fiction. I use NetGalley all the time to read and review upcoming books.

Favorite Television

My favourite TV show of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I'm currently enjoying Once Upon a Time, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Good Place and Riverdale. I'm also a fan of murder mystery shows. I'll watch anything with decent LGBT+ characters.

Favorite Movies

I really love Studio Ghibli films; my favourites are My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Ponyo and Howl's Moving Castle.

Favorite Music

I like a lot of folky acoustic guitar music like Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy DIY, doodling, decorating everything with washi tape, and I painted a giant canvas of No Face from Spirited Away to hang on my wall. I've recently really got into cross stitch!

Comment: Thank you for sharing your playlist with me. I especially love all the Iron & Wine songs. Most of the songs were really soft and comforting and it was a nice contrast with the other playlist so I really enjoyed it. Thank you again!
