For anyone who is following and wanted to know who I am/what I do and how I live. If there’s anything else then feel free to ask.
Name: Emma Louise Hildreth
D.O.B: 1st October 1991.
Where I live: I’m British, from the North of England. Northumberland, Cramlington. For anyone who does not live in the North East just assume Newcastle.
I’m outspoken. I am cheeky. I am protective over family, friends and boyfriend. I am very much my own person who leads life in my own way. I don’t like rules, I find them hard to follow and I like things that come naturally. I’m laid back with some things but really not with a lot. I’m a good organiser, especially when it comes to travelling. I love cheap things over expensive things because I’m a bargain freak. I’m supposedly quite rude (so people say) but that pretty much comes down to the fact I don’t think before I speak. I’m a good person although I have done bad things in my life. I’m all heart. I always think about everyone but I never show it and because of this some think I’m selfish. I’m generally a happy person. My sense of humour is very cynical and dry. I’m sarcastic and occasionally vulgar but by no means disgusting. I rarely get along with girls who have the same music taste as me…normally because they are full on into pin up style/fashion and 9 times out of 10 are ignorant towards me because I don’t have a cool DIY underground punk/hardcore band top on but have blonde hair and a high pitched voice. I get along with girls who are open minded or anyone for that matter. I’m really open minded with music and if you’re not then I recommend opening your mind to new music… you may just like something fresh. It will open you up to new lyrics, feelings and views. I love making people laugh… I think it’s one thing I’m strong at.
University: I study BSc Applied Criminology at the University of Derby. I’m in my second year Sept but for my first year I studied joint honours Criminology and Psychology. I chose this uni for the atmosphere, absence of arrogance and how closely linked it is with Derbyshire police/forensics. I get hurt when people assume this uni is for people with low grades, I achieved BCC at a level and could have got into any of my choices that were all higher than Derby but I chose this uni because it was right for me.
Dress: I will sound like a broken record by now but I can’t stress how much I don’t get along with people who are into latest fashions in all kinds of social groups. I guess I don’t understand fashion. Examples being Nike Airs, Vans (I love Vans, don’t get me wrong but I almost feel like I’ve been pushed away from my favourite shoes), pin up style and major fashions that are in Topshop. I hate how people dress to fit in with a certain crowd and how much people reject others if they do not dress like them. I love clothes and sneaks but I like them because they tickle me….not because a group of people have them and I want to wear them too. I still like styles of clothes I wore years ago and I’m cool with that.
Religious Views: I’m an atheist gone agnostic. I studied Religious Studies at A Level (phil and ethics). I can’t disprove any religion just as much as they can’t prove it. I like to remain open minded with every religion although I have strong views about what is right and wrong e.g. bible has caused problems with contraception and homosexuality. If God created man and women in his eye, why did he create man with a g spot in his anus? Does this not allow room for homosexuality created by God? I could go on forever about my views, test me, I like it.
How my music taste was shaped: Growing up I was surrounded with the sounds of Foo Fighters, Nirvana, The Clash, The Exploited, Talking Heads. I listened to pop/chart until I was about 12 then I started to accept that my dads music was not embarrassing but was in fact much better than anything I had listened to before. From social influences and television I began to pick up my own flavour. I was influenced from people at high school older than me and had a few older friends who by the age of 14 introduced me to Capdown, Less Than Jake etc. I went through a very ska orientated phase and Less Than Jake are the band I have consistently liked the most for the longest time. You could say they’re my favourite band, I just like to say they are one of my favourites. I met my boyfriend in ‘07 and just before then I began to like Bouncing Souls and Rise Against. He listened to hardcore and mostly punk and since I was just breaking into that kind of music (I only knew of british punk from my dad) he introduced me to a lot of bands, some pop punk etc. The older and angrier I got the more I listened to hardcore. I’m really picky when it comes to hardcore and Sinking Ships were a great starting point for me. From then I went on to love Ceremony and Blacklisted who I love the most. I prefer new Blacklisted to old (as an example of the type of hardcore I like) I relate to things more I can understand. As I moved to Uni I’ve became much more open minded as well as continuing to listen to my own flavours. Having a varied taste means it’s hard to keep up with new releases but I’ve never been one for the ‘listened first’ craze. The best place to see how varied my music taste truly is by checking my last.fm account
Television: Favourite programme is Dexter. I started watching Dexter when it first came out in America pretty much. How I discovered it was through ebay listings where I bought the first season randomly. Other programmes I love/loved include The O.C, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, documentaries such as Dispatches, Panorama and Louis Theroux, 90210, Desperate Housewives, Lost, Jackass, Prison Break, Family Guy, Jersey Shore, Geordie Shore, Big Brother, Real Housewives of etc (I’m a big people watcher) and Ross Kemp.
Work: I have worked at Next, A.A.F as a Junior Account Sales Assistant, Peacocks and Somerfield/Co-operative.
My Body: I’m 5ft7, weigh 7 and half stone to 8 and I have double jointed elbows and I assume knees since they can bend the other way. I’m lucky to have a fast metabolism because I eat A LOT. I hate being called skinny, I prefer the word slim. Skinny is often used a lot as a put down
Female Influences: I really look up to strong females in the music business. Actually, I look up to any hard working woman who has done more for herself than a man could.
Loyalty: is a big thing for me. If I am loyal to someone and they are not to me then I pretty much rinse my hands. It’s nice to know there are set people in life that are always there for you
‘Curvy Girls’: I HATE girls who claim to be curvy, put down slim girls and say what men want is a ‘curvy girl’. Not all men are the same, just like how some girls prefer slim men to beefy men. Although I don’t really care what men want and I have a lot of friends of all different sizes I don’t appreciate comments on my weight. I’ve grown to absolutely love being slim instead of feeling like I’m underweight!
Homosexuals: I love gay people. Probably because there are a lot in my family and a lot of my friends are. I hate homophobes. I’m currently trying to get my uncle and his boyfriend to have a civil wedding. I hate that gay people have to ‘come out’. Straight people do not, so gay people should not.
NMA/PMA: I have had a negative perspective on things for all of my life, that was until I went to uni and now I aim on working for a PMA and it really helps. Guaranteed you can’t escape certain negative things in your life, you can have a much better outlook. Why hate when you can love.
Driving: I’ve been able to drive since I was 17 but I’m yet to have my first car. I shared a car with my parents when I passed, I drove a 1.4 Corsa sxi then I made it grind and make love with another car.
Places I have visited in the U.K: Newcastle, Sunderland, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, York, London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Derby, Nottingham, Carlisle, Middlesborough.
Places I have visited outside of the U.K: Salou, Barcelona - Spain, Rhodes - Greece, Menorca, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Belgium. Wexford, Blackwater, Dublin - Ireland.
Below are continuosuly added to:
Things I like: Fruity smells, the colour red, keepsakes, after gig feeling, pre gig feeling, running, bike rides, marmite, chocolate, Cadburys Mini Eggs, travelling a bit each year (as much as I can afford), Europe, America, watching television shows, Dexter, loyalty, people who are easy to get along with, NICE people - you can’t beat a nice person, open minded people,
Things I dislike: People who dictate who is genuine and who is not (perhaps I’m a bit of a contradict here but who are you to judge a person? Who gave you some kind of moral high ground? Unless you know what you’re talking about then it’s best to keep things to yourself). People who dictate what is a good band and what is a bad band (just because you don’t like a band from a certain genre does not make them bad). People dressing to represent something (yeah I know, I saw your Bouncing Souls top, tattoos and peircings, yeah I get it, you like that music….or do you?), being told what to do, rules, taking drugs to fit into the local scene, taking drugs regularly
