About


Hi. I'm Candi, 21, from the UK.

I began this blog just before I started Lancaster University as an undergraduate studying Geography. Defining myself as a Geographer felt, at the time, like a step towards discovering who I was as a person. It feels bizarre to think that over 3 years later, here I am, a Geography graduate with no current plans to fulfil a Geography related career. Yet, that label of 'geographer' is one I feel I will always belong to and associate.

I am passionate about the world we live in, in many ways. I love knowing the processes that exist to shape the natural world we live in. But more so, I love knowing how we, as humans, influence and control these processes. I have a keen interest in climate change and the environment, and discovering how I, along with others, can change my habits to make my lifestyle less impactful on both small and large scales. My particular interests lie, as you'll probably come to see if you stick around for long enough, in food sustainability and food security; in energy sources and in mitigation and geoengineering strategies and how people can band together in communities to get shit done. I don't like to be a defeatist, and I am adamant that change begins with yourself, and only then can you have the ability to make a bigger impact overall. The best educators and leaders can influence through their passion and by practicing what they preach. So this blog will likely be a place for me to document these changes, and bare with me as I have no doubt my opinions will change as this will be a journey of discovery for me and hopefully you.

When I'm not trying to change the world one habit at a time, I love running, playing sports and getting my blood pumping. I love reading, writing, being around my family and friends and reminiscing. I love the sound of laughter, and capturing smiles on camera. I love hiking and visiting beautiful places. I love exploring and trying new things. I love music, listening to it, playing it and singing along to it. I adore the feeling of relaxing after a hard days work, with a cup of tea and an episode of Grey's Anatomy.

I'm a daughter to two amazing parents, a sister to three somewhat annoying older brothers, an auntie to four wonderful, intelligent and beautiful human beings. And a friend to a crazy bunch of amazing people, who you'll probably get to know along this journey if you stick along with me.

This blog is a place for me to ramble about life, reminisce about my travels and geek out occasionally about Geography related things.

Enjoy!
