At the beginning of 2019 I was super happy. At least as happy as I could be in a world facing impending doom and the depressing mess that is Brexit here in the UK. It felt like life was finally coming together and that I’d found my place in the world. I had nearly everything I had ever wanted with a positive future set out.
But then a week into January a bad thing happened that threatened my future, my security and my confidence. My confidence has been irreparably damaged, I’m not sure when or if I’ll ever quite get it back. I learnt several truths about myself then. It turns out I hadn’t found my place, that I live in a society where I don’t quite fit.
Harry Potter is one of my all time favourite things. I cannot get enough of it. So of course I had to take part in this Harry Potter tag when I saw it on Come to the Nerd Side! I’ve seen several Harry Potter tags floating about the geek blog community so this probably won’t be the last one I do!
Here’s a detailed review of the books I read in 2018. Perpetual Page Turner (such a brilliant name for a blog!) put together this survey. I’m a sucker for surveys and one on books I could not resist! So here we go.

Questions and Answers
Here are the questions given to me by Megan. Some of them are pretty difficult to answer (especially for me as quite a flighty indecisive person)! But I’ll give it my best shot (sorry my answers ended up being pretty long).
I used to blog at The Indoor Adventurer but after a while it became neglected as I felt rather uninspired by it. It wasn’t personal and didn’t reflect me or the things I really want to blog about. So this blog is all about me and how I identify. As an eco-warrior, animal lover and geek, ‘the Geeky Hippie’ as a title just felt right.
