About Me

Hello! I'm Emma and I live in Nottingham with my girlfriend and our Syrian hamster, Murray. 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 I speak English and Spanish fluently. I've been vegan for about 9 years now and was vegetarian for 5 years before that. I love cats but our landlord won't let us have any, so for now we have lots of plant babies- mainly succulents and spider plants. We also recently adopted our gorgeous, cuddly hamster-son, Murray! My sibling lives nearby and has 2 adorable rats who we visit all the time too!

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 the wall. I like pin badges and embroidered patches. I really like cats. 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 Volátil. 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 also enjoy Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Good Place and Steven Universe. I'm a fan of murder mystery shows and will 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 our wall. I've recently got really into cross stitch!

Comment: Hi Emma, Thanks so much for the magazines. I've seen them online but not actually had one so I'm really looking forward to reading them. And the pin badge is great -- I'm wearing it right now! You're really lucky to still have a radical bookstore in Nottingham. The Peace Centre, which was Birmingham's radical bookstore, closed in June 1985 when they redeveloped the city centre and we haven't had one since. then. In fact Birmingham doesn't even have an independent bookstore anymore -- there's a Waterstones, a small Foyles, a shop specialising in books about transport and a W H Smith and that's it. Thanks for organising the swap -- I really enjoyed it!

Comment: OH MY GOD I received your package today and it is SERIOUSLY THE BEST SWAP PACKAGE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED! I'm going to try those teas and masks today and I also loved the stickers and I'm so super happy about that hamster toy, because we don't have that one here in Finland! Going to give it to my hammy boy today too. :) Thank you so much for all the lovely things you sent, this was just so incredibly amazing package. <3

Comment: Thank you so much! I love the necklace and the rubber stamps they are so cool! My tattoo artist is a big fan of Disney Princesses with tattoos so she's going to flip when I show her these buttons! Thank you again - it's nice to meet another teacher on this site.

Comment: Thanks for the podcast recommendation. I actually accidentally stumbled across their merch store and thought the title was clever, but I didn't realize it was a podcast! I'll have to check it out!
Response: They have the cutest shirts but we have really high customs fees in the UK!

Comment: Hello, I hope you feel better now. Thank you for sharing. I envy you that you can visit the cat cafe! In Poland there are no such places. I am a huge fan of cats and it is one of my dreams to drink coffee in a cat cafe someday. Hope you'll enjoy your visit there with your mum and girlfriend. Happy New Year!
