If you had a time machine and could go anywhere, where would you go?
The 60s because it had all the social issues revolution, the hippie fashion and culture, the excellent music. The 70s too with all the glam rock. On a more personal level, back to when my Dad and dog were alive because I miss them very much and I would love to see them again.
Three things for deserted island?
My family, my Mum and my sister. But that might unfair to them! So my laptop, book and face cream!
When is your birthday?
22nd of April.
What is your favourite chemical element? (for example, Fluorine, Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen)
Don’t know much about these but oxygen to live I guess.
What is your favourite landform? (like hills, valleys, oceans, coasts, delta)
I love lakes and beaches. There was a lovely lake in Virginia, Cavan that me and the family used to visit years ago. Now I live not far from a gorgeous beach area in Wicklow. I have also visited lovely beaches in Clogherhead Beach in Co. Louth and Dun Laoghaire Harbour. I love looking out of the train at all the beach areas from Dublin to Wicklow and I’ve never been but I love Brighton Beach from pictures I’ve seen and would love to see it in reality. I was in Wales a good few years back too and seen some beautiful beach areas on the train to Cardiff.
Something you wish more people would know about you?
I’m very opinionated and I think sometimes some people take it as harsh. I do mean what I say but sometimes I get the impression by some people it is took to extremes of ‘She hates them. She wishes them ill.’ which couldn’t be further from the truth. Certainly there is people I dislike, some I intensely dislike, but I think that’s normal. No one likes everybody but I certainly don’t hate anyone or wish badness on people. Everything I say comes a place of goodness and honesty, at least from my perception so I wish that was more obvious sometimes. Also as an introvert, I don’t always bring out my sense of humour which is nothing like really witty peoples’ but it does exist and I wish I didn’t second guess saying things more often. I tend to bring it more out in my writing than in everyday life and interactions.
Do you have a lucky charm?
I don’t. I should get one.
Where was your childhood home?
My childhood home was in a small town in Co. Meath, Ireland. It was called Oldcastle and I lived in the old part of a council estate.
Your favourite subject to study?
I loved English because I have always loved reading and writing. But I liked history and C.S.P.E too. The latter is Civic, Social, Political Education and I was sad it wasn’t offered after Junior Cert level.
What did you want to become as a kid?
I wanted to be a make-up artist and also a singer. The writing was in the mix too. But it became the main one later on.
Do you wish to go to school again?
No. Courses, yeah but a school atmosphere no. I do love learning but I prefer doing it at my own pace and not in a structured routine. Like through books and the internet is perfect for me!
