It’s been a while since I have done any sort of get to know me better posts, so here it is! I write about so many advice posts and share some aspects of my life, but I really want to get more comfortable and open up more about me as a person. I think its so important as a person who writes on the internet that I allow you into my life sometimes. Although my blog and personal life are separate, I really enjoy letting you guys have a glimpse into my world. And personally, I love reading about other bloggers and their lives too.
I actually had an idea to make this post into a challenge. At the end I’m going to nominate some other bloggers to take part. I want to encourage other creators to become more comfortable sharing things about themselves on their sites. So look out for your name at the bottom of this post! And even if I don’t tag you, please do it anyway. I’d love to get to know you more!
ANIMALS ARE MY LIFE
When I say animals are life, I really mean it. I mean it because for the last 5 years I haven’t eaten any meat. I made the decision to become vegetarian because I stopped seeing animals as food. I started to see them for what they are. Animals with hearts and minds and emotions. The love I have for animals is limitless.
I have a dog, she turns 14 years old this month and thats what made me start to love animals so much more. Do you love animals? I find that people often love them so much or don’t really love them at all. It’s like there’s no in-between!
I WANTED TO BE A TEACHER GROWING UP
I always remember as a child pretending I was a teacher when I was playing in my room. I’d create a class register and check in all my students and teach them lessons on things I had no idea about. It really was so fun! As I got older though, of course my interests changed and I realised how tough and hard being a teacher actually is. Which is why I never pursued it. Sometimes I wonder if it’s still in my future or not, but I don’t know for now.
It’s so funny the things we wanted to be when we grew up as kids. And often how we change our minds or life doesn’t pan out the way we expect it to.

I HATE DRINKING TEA
I am the worst British person ever, but really. I hate tea. I can say with my hand on my heart that I have never drunk a cup of tea in my life. I remember as a child I’d dunk my biscuits into a cup of tea but that was it. I really have a weird thing about tea, I hate the smell of it on peoples breath the most. Its really gross and off putting.
It’s funny because one of my siblings is the same. Neither of us drink hot drinks either. I never drink hot drinks actually. If I ever do its a green tea.

I WANTED TO MOVE COUNTRIES
For as long as I can remember I always said when I got older that I wanted to move to America. New York specifically. I always watched it on tv and in movies and fell completely in love. I have been to New York 5 times now, and I love it so much. I even looked into the process of finding a job out there and making it happen. It of course never did because I am still very much in the UK. But I have always wanted to experience living away from home.
Maybe it’ll happen sometime in my future! Who knows. I am for sure open to the idea!

Ah omg ! Are we the same person ? I have been obsessed with moving to NYC since watching SATC & maybe in the future.
So good to get you know you better and I think you would’ve made a great teacher !
Its soooo expensive though! I’d love to at some point!
It’s great to know more about you, Olivia. I think your desire to teach shines through on your blog and the blogging resources you create. You may not teach in the traditional sense but your content does offer a lot of value and learning opportunities, especially for fellow bloggers.
I’ve too want to live in another country. My top 4 places are England, Canada and Japan. I would also like to visit the USA.
Aw I really love this and never thought about it that way. I guess my teaching comes across in wanting to help others grow and learn about blogging! 🙂
I want to move out of the country as well. I currently live in US and definitely want to move out.
Where would you go?
It’s nice to know you more!
Omg I also wanted to be a teacher when I was little 🥺
This post is so lovely!
Wow! I’m glad that I came across your blog. It’s like getting to know a new friend. Nice to meet you, Olivia. ✨
Aw I love that! Thank you so much!

I never did anything to pursue it either! A dream never lived!
Really good to get to know you better.
I guess you fulfilled your teaching dream in a way, cause you do that a lot through your blog. And I really appreciate that.

NY, the city that never sleeps. Born, raised and well, not going anywhere.
