About

Hello! I'm Leigh (and yes, that's still pronounced "lee" not "lay"). It came to my attention that I’ve had the same bio for over a year, so here goes an attempt at trying to make myself sound more intelligent and interesting than before:

I’m still a five-foot-eight nineteen-year-old living a secret life on the internet (though slightly less secret now, as I worked up the courage to tell my two best friends). As of now, I’m a first year student at the University of Birmingham. Things about me you need to be aware of? Probably the following: I have a love-hate relationship with writing; I enjoy having people fangirl over my British accent, and I am obsessed with the TV show Catfish. To the point where it’s probably unhealthy.

Obviously, there’s more to me than that, but you’re probably better off searching through my ask.fm (25000 answers strong – get a life, Leigh) if you want to know the ins and outs.

Enjoy your visit to my profile, I guess. Better go read my stories now.

Just to let you know, I don't take reading requests. Please don't ask me to read your story as the message will be deleted. Don't take it personally.
