About me?!?/what comes next
From my Tumblr http://www.tumblr.com/blog/tinylou13 if people start viewing I will do more updates!
School and Uni are now over for me. I have just started my new job and it is time to grow up, move up and step up to the challenge that is the rest of my life.
I just graduated from an Australian Uni with a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering. And every time I meet someone and they ask me what do you do I tell them this and they are normally shocked. People don’t expect short young looking females like me, to make the move and go into what is still a male dominated field. It is a Challenge and I like it.
I just moved out of home for the first time and moved in with my long term boyfriend. It is going well, we have been dating for over 4.5 years and not much has changed since we started living together apart from us both saving money on fuel! We met at uni, he is also an engineer, but a computer systems engineer… don’t ask, I have very little idea of what this actually entails.
I volunteer a lot, for a youth science organisation (if you are interested message me and I will tell you the name, it isn't exclusive and you don't have to study science just think its cool) and also a group called Rosies who talk to the homeless on the streets. It keeps me grounded and open to everything else that is out there.
What I really want to do is inspire and help the dreams of others like me. I love seeing and helping people realise that science or engineering isn’t just nerdy, but you can change the world with your own hands by doing it. I suppose I should mention I am a Taylor Swift fan? I first heard her songs in around 2008 and for the most part fell instantly in love. My like of Taylor’s music grew with time, I find that what happened in my past can be heavily related to her songs and I really respect her openness with her music.
That is me in a nutshell. I will expand more over time and as I gain followers and as people want to learn.
