Yep, that’s me

I’m Hannah, currently based in London, England.

This is my personal blog. I’m all about trying to live life unafraid, making great habits, learning to love myself and others, and chasing freedom, whatever that means to me on whatever day you might ask.

As you can see, I love painting, food, psychology, fitness, thinking too much, and dogs, with a bit of culture, history and lazing about thrown in.

Workwise, I’ve got a History BA from Cambridge and a Journalism MA from City University London, and used to work as a website editor before moving on to placements at all kinds of food/travel/lifestyle magazines, doing everything from editorial assistant work to sub-editing to general admin. I’ve been a reporter and now I’m a ‘multimedia editor’, which right now means I get to do stuff with video and play with audio and video software such as Audacity and Adobe Premiere Pro.

For a more professional take, see my journalism clippings here.

You can find comment pieces, reviews of events and shows, favourite links, comments or videos which have brightened up my day, and anything else that seems, for that fleeting blip of time on the calendar of life, relevant.

It would be impossible to list all the things that make it worth getting out from under the duvet in the morning, but let’s just say sunshine, coffee, blue skies, fresh air, strawberries, laughter, live folk music, chocolate, the colour fuschia, silver rings, dreams of India, Marrakech, holidays, lie-ins, cool pillowcases, buttered toast, great TV, getting a job well done, and the hope that today may be the day that London’s iconic but crumbling public transport system may flow seamlessly in motion on the commute are some of the things that primarily occur to me right now.

What can I say, it’s late (I’ve never knowingly gone to bed at a properly sensible hour).

    Hello Hannah,
    I found your blog whilst searching for items on Mindfulness. I found it most enlightening and felt I’d been at the venue and heard Ruby Wax myself. Thank you for describing it so well.
    I have recently done a short CBT group course which I found beneficial but what has helped me rethink and change myself is a book.
    It’s called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I can, with all honesty, say that the simple techniques within the book have rescued me from myself! Simple doesn’t mean easy, though!
    I will certainly look into Mindfulness as well, because it may also be useful in stopping me from slipping back into my old ways.
    Thank you again for letting me be there with you at Ruby Wax’s show.

      Hi Jacqui, Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I’m so glad the Ruby Wax post helped you, you’re so kind!

      Even though I was there, of course, writing about it definitely helped me to really think about, and keep track of, the useful things that Ruby said. It was one of the best talks on mindfulness I’ve been to.

      Thanks for your recommendation too. Mindfulness helped me out at a dark time in my life and still continues to help me think about things and give myself some space. I’ll take a look at the Four Agreements book!

      Thanks again so much for reading my post.

      Hannah 🙂
