About KirstyWirsty


I thought it was about time I updated my about page.
My name is Kirsty and I am 41 years old. I live in Stirling but am originally from Edinburgh. I am in 2nd year at Stirling university and I study English and am also doing some Politics modules but just until 3rd year. I am a late starter at university, but I think its never too late to make positive changes in your life. My ambition is to make a comfortable living in some form of writing. I have just signed a contract for the publication of one of my novels (best feeling ever).

I work part time as a keyholder in the British Red Cross. I was a retail manager for 20 years and find that working within the charity sector is not only fulfilling but fun.

Outside of uni and work, I enjoy writing obviously, I love a good book, I enjoy theatre, visiting new places and looking at tatt. I love old places and would love to discover somewhere new. I love most types of music yet have a new found respect for classical.

More importantly, I have recently met the love of my life, it was the most romantic experience of my life. Her name is Helen, she is 27, she is English but I’m converting her to the Scottish way of life. We met on WordPress. She commented on one of my blogs and I replied. She was at the other side of the world at the time and lets just say, we fell in love before we even met. She is now lying on my sofa whilst I write this.

I’m complicated, or at least I thought I was, until I met Helen and she gets me. I wear my heart on my sleeve and crave the love that she so readily gives me. I’m disappointed in the dullness of normal life and sometimes people,I seek to make my world a more pleasant place by being a little irrational and often spontaneous. I hate the word normal, I believe that our lives are so socially constructed that we are scared to be individual. Politically I am a socialist/feminist and disagree with the majority of British politics.

I plan on exploring this big wide world after I graduate. I want to take a million pictures of the most colourful and weirdest places then write about them, this will be made perfect with Helen by my side.

I believe in true love and I believe that dreams can come true as long as your are honest and true to yourself and never give up hope.

I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to like my author page on face book.

    everything about you is beautiful. I know we all have an ugly side. But i bet even those sides of you are beautiful in their own ways.

    Thanks for the follow. I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland. Maybe some day. Keep an open mind on romance. Someone is out there, as cliche as that is. I met my own partner online. We were best friends for 5 years before we began dating. Now we live in Japan together and I couldn’t be more happy.

    I think she said it best though: we work together not because we are in love and look at each other. We work because we are in love and face the same direction. :)

    Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

    Hello Kirsty, thanks for following. If not already done so listen to Rachmaninov’s Piano concerto no 2. It is tragically beautiful with a sense of longing – for me of a lost love or what was never realised.

    I love your blog, it was so refreshing to read about your studies, writing and new love. I totally agree with your views on ‘normal’ life and that it is good to be unique. I’m complicated and wear my heart on my sleeve too. Good luck with everything :-) x
