The Wanderer Returns!

Post by :Sarita: » Sun February 17th, 2013, 10:22 pm

I say 'wanderer' because I was last on here in 2010! I did introduce myself back then but I sincerely doubt many of you will remember me, so it feels only right that I re-introduce myself!

My name's Sara, I'm 24 and live in England. I'm a history graduate currently working in retail (ha!), and volunteering for a South London museum/visitor centre in my spare time :) I, of course, like books, and historic settings are my preference :D Appropriate, no?

Anyway, it's lovely to be here again, I've missed interacting with people via a forum, and I hope I get to speak to lots of you lovely people soon :)

Buenos noches!
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

I'm in Kent so it would probably be a way to travel, but thank you anyway, kind of you :)
