About Me


I'm Jemima and I'm 17 years old. I spent most of my life on the South Coast of Wales but have been living in England for about two years now. I'm currently in the first year of my A Levels, studying English, History and Government + Politics for any of you interested.

Ever since I can remember I have been the kid in the corner, reading and scrawling on bits of scrap paper and cheap notebooks. This didn't really change much as I got older, except now I can almost always be found with a cup of tea in my hands. Most days I can be seen doing as such, while frequently playing my violin, singing dreadfully out of tune to an ABBA song or the Wicked soundtrack or munching on a piece of cake.

I started this here blog in May 2015, as a place for me to share those, somewhat improved, scrawls. I write on topics varying from books and events in my life to body confidence and observations on our society - and then maybe the odd poem and creative piece thrown in there too. Basically whatever is on my mind!

I also have a monthly podcast with my friend Maisie called The Actor and the Writer. There, we discuss a arnge of things - from alcohol, religion, feminism, UCAS applications and books!

I post twice a week on either Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, sometimes there may even be a third post chucked in there for the fun of it! Most Fridays I post something from a series called 5 Fridays - a list of 5 coming from one of a very wide range of topics!

Happy reading!
