You’ve magically stumbled across a page where I should be telling you about myself. Congratulations, you will now learn snippets about me. Let’s begin.
My name is Michelle. I like the nickname Mitch but, nobody actually calls me that. I’m a Canuck and if you’re not sure what that means, you’re clearly not a Canuck. My ethnicity is Chinese but, I’m your typical white girl in most senses.
My laptop and my phone are two of my favourite things in the world (insert witty comment about material possessions here). I believe that social media can change the world, one tweet at a time. I also believe music can change the world, one song at a time; essentially I’m a walking cliché. I enjoy concerts more than almost any other event that could happen in the world and I’m not afraid to sing along like an idiot at any gig or just, you know, in the shower.
Books transport me to the most incredible places. I’ll always settle for Holden Caufield, Elizabeth Bennet, Charlie and Margo Roth Spiegelman. I also have an unhealthy obsession with Portia de Rossi’s Unbearable Lightness.
I genuinely believe Audrey Hepburn was the most incredible woman who ever graced this earth. A strong cup of tea makes me smile. Coffee also makes me smile, especially on early mornings, which I loathe.
You’ll always see me carrying around a Moleskine, writing down my thoughts or writing letters to my friends. Other times, I blog my thoughts – as evidenced by this WordPress account you’ve stumbled upon.
I watch a lot of television and obsess about Hollywood peoples. Disney and rom-coms are my go-to movie genres. I’m an unhealthy fan of Pocahontas (by unhealthy I mean I’ve seen it well over 400 times). I’ve a few pieces of ink based around that story and other little inky details on my body.
Ideally, I would spend the next few years of my life traveling anywhere and everywhere. Reality obviously kicks me in the butt about that idea.
Instead, I’m undertaking a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology in Ireland while simultaneously completing an online Certificate in Translation from French to English. The very expensive piece of paper on my wall with my name on it and the words “Honours Bachelor of Science Psychology and French Language and Linguistics” led me in this particular direction.
So that’s me in a nutshell. Like I said, typical white girl in most senses.
Now, my friends, go forth. Like some things. Find me on internet places. And forget about reality for a moment.
