hello all! i'm mariam, i'm eighteen, and i split my time between london (where i live) and cambridge (where i study). in both locations, i spend most of my time making really bad jokes and eating italian food. 

i try to retain my chill most of the time but if you bring up star wars or brie larson i'll probably lose it really damn quick. generally speaking, i'm average at most things, except maths, which i am below average at. aside from the obvious (reading and writing), i like jazz music, theatre, and de-constructing white patriarchal ideals.

unforunately, i'm very bad at a) actually writing my books b) replying to my messages and c) watching youtube videos that are longer than six minutes. i know. i'm sorry. thank you for sticking around anyway.

**i'm not active here any more - thank you for an amazing six years. i've left my work up for you all to peruse. in the meantime, feel free to contact me in one of these places:
