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.

I have watched your video on youtube for rhe fourth time now..  i'm loving your accent, and you're really pretty. I hope i can just grow wings and fly to England for the meetup you and mariam are hosting :) My all time favorite wattpad story is Vanilla, i just really love the way its written and how you could feel exactly the same way the characters do.. I cried, no joke, i cried.
      
      
      Currently, i'm reading Friendship for Dummies and its a really cute story, and to be honest you are absolutely right saying that nobody will ever hate Connor for the fact that he is played by Logan Lerman. haha. anyway, i hope you'll never stop sharing your stories to us.
      
      May the lord bless you :) I know you'll be a succesful, published writer someday :D
Hi, guys!
      
      For any of you who happen to be British, I have exciting news (for any of those outside the UK, sorry. Please ignore this message). My friend Mariam (@defend) and I are trying to get together a Wattpadders' meetup in London this August. It won't be anything official: just a group of users meeting up to hang out for the day. We did a similar thing last summer and it ended up being really fun, so we're trying again.
      
      If you are interested in joining, and are able to get to London, please contact me by private message!
