Back to School Book Blogger Challenge: Day 1 – Introductions

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge
Day 1 – It’s time to stand up in front of the class and share with the rest of us a little bit about you!

Hihi, I’m Louise! I’m an 18-year-old university student from the North East of England, and next month will be my three year blog anniversary (wowzers). Apart from my obvious obsession with reading, I’m also completely obsessed with films, TV, and cartoons. Oh man, do I love me some cartoons (the vast majority of reaction images in my folder are from The Simpsons).
Anyways, I am a university student, and am about to go into my second year studying for a BA in English and Creative Writing. That means that I do a lot of reading that gets in the way of my reading. Trust me, that totally makes sense.
A few random facts about me:
  • The city where I’m from is where Lewis Caroll wrote Jabberwocky and The Walrus and the Carpenter. There’s a statue of a walrus in the park in the city centre to commemorate it.
  • My book collection grows at about the same rate as my DVD collection.
  • I spend more time on Tumblr than I should (you should totally follow me btw)
  • See that Bender gif above? I made it. Yup. I’ve been teaching myself how to make gifs recently and I think I’m getting better at it. It’s like everything: practise makes perfect!
  • I’m obsessed with aliens. Because aliens are just the coolest.
  • When I’m not reading or blogging, I can be found watching films, or TV shows, or cartoons, and also around the net!
So, that is me in as much as I could remember about myself! I shall see you all around the blogosphere πŸ™‚

    I also buy a lot of DVD's I already have a huge collection that rivals with my book collection, haha. So I have the same as you; when I'm not reading or blogging, you can find me playing games (most of the times on the PS3) or watching a movie/TV show. Fun to get to know more about you πŸ˜€

    As a former English major, I totally get the "That means that I do a lot of reading that gets in the way of my reading." Looking forward to reading the rest of your posts connected to the Back to School Book Blogger Challenge.

    Tumblr is like a black hole. I'm always like, "Oh, I'll just look around for a few minutes" and then I end up spending hours before I finally wake up. & aliens scare me! But I love reading books about them.

    Anyway, nice to "meet" you!

    Nice to meet you Louise! πŸ™‚ I had no idea what a gif was until a few days ago, and I think you are really good at it. I do not even know where to find those at. And I really like the ones you have created!

    Nice post.

    I'm obsessed with aliens. Nice to meet you. Let's be friends. πŸ˜€ I'm serious. Not a stalker. Swear.
