About Me!

You can read some of her work by visiting the aptly named ‘My Work!’ category in the sidebar. Leave feedback, preferably stating that ___ (name of work) was a masterful work of genius. Thank-you.

In her free time, Lydia thinks about writing, watches documentaries about space and aliens, reads science-fiction, plays sport (though she has a crippling fear of ball-related injuries) chats amiably to herself, points out others spelling mistakes, and slaughters moving, classical music on the oboe. Lydia says that her dream job would be working as a cosmologist or astronaut and writing science fiction for children and young adults, though the movie Gravity put her off any such astronaut-ing ventures for a while.When she took the Divergent aptitude test, she received Amity, which is obviously inappropriate as she struggles to curb her violence, even toward her closest friends, and couldn’t even keep a weed alive by accident. This is why Herbology would not be among her choice of magical subjects.

She shares a birthday with O.J Simpson, which is a slightly distressing fact. Lydia wishes she hadn’t told you that, but don’t worry, she’s not about to murder her family. She shed her homocidal tendencies years ago.

Secretly, she’s never finished a novel, which makes her very sad; this July, she will be participating in Camp NaNoWrimo, halfway through which she will turn thirteen.Reading gives her concussions, as she always punches herself in the head for not thinking of all the cool things first; evidently she is very critical of herself. This also happens when she reads other peoples blogs.

Lydia is also a nerdfighter, bookworm, budding scientist, collector of Old English words and random facts,  Potterhead, and animal lover; words like chalcedony can conjure up an uncanny spurt of enthusiasm in her, which strangers are slightly put off by. She frequently disrupts her sleep patterns by discussing odd topics in depth with herself, such as time travel and aliens, or pondering the meaning of life.

Though she has only read several of their works, she is very envious of Eoin Colfer, John Green, Cornelia Funke, Neil Gaiman, Frances Hardinge, and Patrick Ness.  J.R.R Tolkien, and J.K Rowling go without saying. (It is evident that the best authors use initials.)Lydia has a taboo against books that use the words vampires and hot in the same sentence, and though she likes to think she reads widely, her favourite genres are science-fiction, fantasy, along with humorous or satirical books.

P.S Please leave lots of comments, as I am a lonely soul!

  1. Ooh! Frances Hardinge! SHE IS THE MOST AMAZING AUTHOR AND A FACE LIKE GLASS, A FACE LIKE GLASS, THAT BOOK IS PERFECT.

    Ahm. Sorry about that. *facepalm* Thanks for following by blog! Hi doppelganger! I can’t believe that I’ve found someone else that lives in NZ! 😀

  2. I now have a blog! *jumps up and down excitably* 😀 Am so happy that we have the same theme, even though you were the one who inspired me to have that theme in the first place! And if you tell me I already have a blog: HOW DARE YOU! IT DOES NOT COUNT AS IT WAS NOT ON WORDPRESS!

    Sorry 😀

The place where unironically enthusiastic geeks may congregate and be unironically enthusiastic!
