Day 14: what’s your earliest memory?

I haven’t the greatest memory at all, the majority of my so-called “memories” are actually based around the photos I’ve seen.

However I would say that my earliest memory would be when I was aged around 4… My primary school closed down in middle of the school year & all the others weren’t taking any new students. So I was sent to Grenada to live with my Grandparents until I was able to get into a school in the UK.

I was only in Grenada for around 6ish months, I used to get dropped off in the morning by my Grandad & then get the bus back home by myself.

It was around this time that we got a dog called Topsy (RIP), he was literally the best dog in the world. Whenever I’d come home he’d be waiting eagerly for me by the gate, ready to jump into my arms ❤️

I vaguely remember making friends with a girl called Gemma but that’s about it really. When I came back to London I had a thick Grenadian accent which even my parents failed to understand.

So yeah I guess that’s that’s the earliest memory I have….

Day 13: where would you like to visit/live one day?

If you know me then you know I love to travel.

There’s just something so satisfying about exploring the different corners of the world & interacting with those belonging to different cultures and backgrounds. The only this is I don’t do enough of it…

If it was up to me (and my bank account of course) I’d be on a plane every 2 weeks, gong on new adventures & meeting new people. Unfortunately for me it doesn’t work like that but hopefully one day it will be my reality 🙏🏾

Where would you like to visit?

Honestly, Everywhere

But if I had to chose one place in this current moment it would be Bali! From what I’ve seen, Bali is my dream destination. It just looks like a place where you’d go to escape from the hardships of everyday life. So peaceful. So calm.

Where would you like to live?

For the longest time I’ve this obsession of living in Canada. I’ve never been but I would definitely move there in a heartbeat. My earliest memory of this obsession started back when the first Twilight movie came out. I remember swearing that one day I would go to Canada to go on a “twilight tour” (yes they actually exist) to pretend as though I was in the movie 😂.

I would also love to live in Italy on more of a short term basis, mainly to familiarise myself with the language.

Where would you like to visit or potentially live one day? Comment & let me know ☺️

Day 9: if you could have any job what would it be?

If I could have any job in the world what would it be?

I used to ponder on this question a concerning amount when I was a little girl. Out of all of the jobs in the world it was so hard for me to settle on one. My answers would range from a gymnast, to a singer, to a ballerina, all of which seemed to be phases. However one thing that always stuck with me even up until this day was acting.

I was first thrown into the drama world at 6 years old, after complaints from teachers that I was too quiet & didn’t talk very much. It was my first encounter with acting & I can honestly say that it’s changed my life & helped me mould into the person that I am today.

To me acting is more than just reciting a bunch of lines & selecting the appropriate emotion to convey. It’s about leaving the comfort of your own body & becoming someone else both physically & mentally.

Whenever I used to perform on stage I honestly wasn’t myself, I wasn’t the reserved, socially awkward Adina, I was whoever the script told me to be in that current moment. That’s the beauty of it, regardless of the struggles or hardships you are facing, you can escape for a while & literally transform into another being.

So yeah, I guess if I could have any job it would be that of an actor… an author would be pretty cool too 🙂
