  1. What an interesting post Holly. I'm an introvert too and it can be annoying at times when people keep asking you are okay or why are you so quiet! I hope you get to travel outside of the country and all the best for the future :)

  2. Hi Holly, I love reading posts like this as I think you get a nice little insight into other peoples lives and interests and it's nice when you have things in common, I'm a HUGE Twilight fan too, I even made my best friend in to one lol, I love Desperate Housewives, I have Fibro and know quite a few other people with it and I love being by the sea. I used to live in Seaford and miss going to Eastbourne and Brighton, I've not been back there for too many years and I would really love to do the Trek America trip, it looked amazing, I've been following Corrie's posts and videos from DizzyBrubette. Anyway, thought I'd say hi. If you still fancy a chat sometime, just drop me a line. Hugs, Dani crystalsparklydreams@hotmail.com

  6. I love posts like these and getting to know a little bit more about the person behind the blog. I use the feel the same before I left Ireland I worked as a waitress because I just needed to figure my life out & had no idea what I wanted to do so it was a nightmare telling people that I actually have a degree in Media which I studied for 4 years because they were just like but why are you a waitress haha x

  10. University was probably one of the worst times of my life as well and I went to Bangor university. If you were diagnosed with any condition or went through something terrifying, there's little security for you it was horrible. I also did English Literature :P
    Also congrats on the engagement! (A bit late but whatever haha)
