These things are always really hard to start. At least the very first post because probably some of you know me already because I’ve told you I’m starting a blog so introducing myself seems tedious. But, perhaps there are some that stumbled onto this page through wordpress recomendations or seeing a friend of a friend like it and… maybe you want to know what this is all about. So as a compromise, I’m going to introduce myself but keep it short and sweet.
My name is Embla and I’ve been doing sca things for about a year and a half now. I live in Malagentia with my dog Leona. I have many passions and there are too many amazing things to explore to focus on just one. So I find myself darting between a wide variety of things such as calligraphy and illumination, lampworking (beads or most recently game pieces), pottery, sewing, the very beginnings of weaving, archery, fighting heavy list, and exploring cut & thrust. There may be things I’m missing that I’ll bring up later!
Mundanely, I’m a neuroscience student on my last year of undergraduate studies. After I graduate I hope to go to graduate school and eventually focus on helping those with substance use disorder. All this sometimes makes balancing “real life” and “sca life” difficult but I try my best to manage 🙂
So now that I’ve introduced myself, I’m going to go start updating some posts with some projects I’ve done recently! Thanks for being here! ❤
