About Me

ellen kathryn darbyshire

My name is Ellen and I like writing so much so that I’ve dedicated a blog to all the rubbish that my brain churns out whilst I’m having my tea or waiting for the bus. I also like reading, and drawing, and study Creative Writing, English Language and Graphic Design, so it’s all related it one way or another. I’ve no idea what I want to do in the future, but I think I’ve missed my chance at being a neurosurgeon…

I also love animals – so much so that I don’t eat them – and keep three ex-battery hens (Gretchen, Spinelli and Jill). I’m more of an analogue person (which might explain the instant photos) and I volunteer at a ‘bookshop’ that takes in unwanted books and gives them away for free! As much as I love writing, I just don’t write much anymore, so I hope this blog will get me going.

Here’s an A-Z of what this blog might touch on:

  • Anxiety
  • Books
  • Chickens and chicken keeping
  • Drama
  • England and English language
  • Film
  • Graphic design
  • Health
  • Interests (in all things!)
  • Joy Division
  • K-Pop (and my distaste for it)
  • Language and linguistics
  • Music
  • Northern culture
  • Opinions (on all things!)
  • Politics
  • Questions (about all things!)
  • Reviews
  • Studying and student life
  • The Smiths
  • University
  • Visiting said universities
  • Writing
  • X-rays (c’mon, X is hard)
  • Youth (I would know – I’m a Yoof)
  • Zen (Z is hard too…)
