I’ve decided to take part in the #WritersBootcampZA challenge where a new topic is posted every day and then you say a little something about it. Because who doesn’t love a challenge, right?
Disclaimer: I enjoy attempting the #FMSphotoaday challenges on Instagram every month but most months I fail, so there’s that.
Anyhoo, today is the 1st of July (whaaat?) and today’s prompt is:
Even if you know me well, you don’t know this…
This is a really tough one for me. Mostly because I’m pretty sure I share absolutely every thing about myself.
There’s more than one thing I considered sharing. Some of you may already know this though.
1) I sing. I used to sing in my church band (for about 7 years), I sang (and even had solos) in my school choir. I took part in eisteddfods and exams in primary school and did really well. I was even asked to join the Tygerberg Children’s Choir at a very young age, but my parents said no. I was very young and parents are not allowed to accompany the choir when they travel overseas which they do often. My parents felt it would have been a little too much for me. I’m both bummed and grateful for their decision.
2) I wanted to a be a marine biologist growing up and I’m obsessed with the sea. That’s not much a surprise. But I am horifically awful at anything science related, hence me avoiding the marine biology route.
3) I like fire. Not like I-want-to-burn-buildings-down, but as a child I often built tiny fires in my backyard and had my dog keep watch while I stole fire starters and matches from the garage. Whoops.
And that’s it. I don’t think I have much more to share. What do you guys think? Did you know all of this about me already? Ha! Probably.
Chat soon! And why not share your responses to the challenge too?
