Hello, my name is Joanna

I am currently studing a masters degree at the University of Greenwich in Web Design and Content Planning

Welcome to my profile page where I explain a bit about myself.

Trading cards

Collecting trading cards is also a hobby of mine. My favourite to collect are Pokémon cards as they are the most fun TCG (trading card game) to play in my opinion, but I also have a few Magic the Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.

Horses

I am also interested in horse riding and have taken lessons for several years. This is a rather expensive hobby though, and so I cannot afford to do it that often. Some of my favourite memories are jumping for the first time, cantering through large fields and watching the Olympia Horse Show in London. I also make time to volunteer at a local equine rescue charity in Kent, but as I spend a lot of time in Somerset it’s hard to schedule visits.

Walking

Most days however, I do make time to fit in a walk. Usually this is done with my boyfriend’s dogs, Tufty and Archie. Some of our favourite spots include Ham Hill and Coombe Hill Woods. At the moment we are enjoying the cooling weather and the bright autumn colours.

Arts and crafts

Drawing and painting are a big part of my life, including other crafts such as crochet. I tend to go through phases of creativity, for example, I don’t like to do acrylic painting in the summer as it dries too quickly and I like to crochet as the weather gets colder.

I also occasionally pick up the tin whistle.

Reading

I like reading too, espcially fantasy books. My favourites series include Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.
