Welcome to The Confessions of an Online Shopaholic and my ‘About Me’ page! I’m Jenny, and I’m a 21-year-old from a town in Cheshire,UK. I am a self-confessed shopaholic (as you can probably guess from the blog title), and I admit to spending my wage as soon as I get it on shopping online (which I’m sure a lot of you can relate to).
What Is My Background?
I ended up finishing my last year of college in 2016 after 3 years of trying to achieve the A-Level grades I was happy with. I ended up with Biology, Geography and Psychology A-Level, and an AS-Level in Chemistry. People have continually asked me about why I chose not to go to university. But, I guess after doing the same A-Levels for 3 years, I decided I needed some time out of education. This was to discover who I really am, and what I really aspire to do in life.
What Do I Do For A Living?
I worked in a Pharmacy, as a Dispenser to utilise the science knowledge I acquired over the years. However, I’ve decided to take a break from pursuing science, and I want to pursue my dreams in the creative sector. I am now looking to pave my way into Digital Marketing. I feel like this is a very new, and exciting chapter in my life.
What Are My Passions?
I have always had a passion for Graphic Design (which I know is completely different from the science orientated subjects I have picked). Although, I never carried my passion through beyond doing the subject during my GCSEs. This is why I created my blog, as I always enjoyed website design and making my own graphics. I really like the aspect of a good challenge trying to learn about how websites work and all the technical jargon that comes with learning how to set up a website. I’ve always enjoyed writing essays too. If you ask any of my friends, they will always tell you how annoyingly long all of my texts are to them. I have such a terrible habit of writing too much, so that’s why I channel it into writing on my blog.
I enjoy Geography and exploring other cultures that are different from my own. I’m Chinese myself, but I was born in the UK, so that meansI am bilingual. I live by the quote that “travelling makes a person richer” because interacting with other people from different ethnicities and religious backgrounds allow you to be more open-minded towards how other people live; their beliefs and the languages they speak; and generally makes you more accepting of other people around you.
I love to travel around my own country and countries around the world. I’m always seeking the inner peace and joy I feel when I can really appreciate the surroundings I’m in. Also, how lucky I feel to be able to travel across the oceans or jump on a train to a different region of the UK to enjoy the views that I wouldn’t see on a daily basis.
Most of all, my favourite hobby (you guessed it) is shopping online! Over the years I’ve mastered the art of hunting down voucher codes to reduce the cost of things so that the money saved can go towards more shopping. I hope I can help some of you with saving your pennies for a rainy day (as in for a sale on a later date)!
