I'm new here and thought I'd try to get to know people by finding out more about you individually, if that's okay? So I'm really into animal behaviour. Having previously been a vet nurse it always fascinated me & was obviously a big part of my job so that was a bonus. As a result I have pets... currently 2 house rabbits and a lovely gerbil. I'm also into motorbikes... having grown up around them I just love to be around them & riding them. So what interests you?
Music (classical and most other genres) and reading (fiction and non fiction) are big interests of mine.
I am also very interested in the Middle East, politics, history and culture. I read around hundred blogs every day on this subject.
My job in woodland has given me an interest in wildflowers and the folklore associated with them.
I wish I could comment on the politics etc however I don't tend to pay much attention to it all. History I only have a GCSE because I was made to take the class... I barely passed that. Do you play any music or is it mainly listening? What's the last book you read? I'm currently reading Bitten by Kelley Armstrong... this will be the 6th time I've read the entire series.
I mess around on an electric guitar. I have sound/colour synaesthesia which is triggered by timbre, so I mostly play about with different effects.
I listen to music a lot.
The last book I read was ‘Purple Hibiscus’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
What instrument(s) do you play?
Oh electric guitar is cool! I'll have to look into what a synaesthesia is/does. It sounds really interesting. I tried to learn guitar once... but my fingers are a bit too sensitive for the strings so I stopped that after a few months. I play piano a fair amount (we have a grand and an upright in the front room). I'm currently relearning how to read sheet music so I might be able to play more than the songs I know from memory/learn from listening.
I like the piano. There is a small concert hall about 20 mins -by car- from where I live. They have some famous pianists perform. In the last year I’ve seen Marc-André Hamelin, Peter Donohoe and Imogen Cooper among others.
You're lucky to have that so close and lucky to have been able to go see them :)
