Thought I'd introduce myself, I hope this is the right place! I may end up rambling a bit, so I apologise in advance! My name's Emily (Obviously) and I'm 23, from Essex. I just completed my degree in Illustration, and now work two part time jobs to make ends meet. (Living in Cambridge isn't half expensive! But no, I didn't go to 'Cambridge' Cambridge - I was in the 'ghetto' end, at Anglia Ruskin Uni. That intelligent, I wish!) I stay there mainly for one of my jobs and passions - I teach kids martial arts classes (lots of games and throwing huge squidgy gymballs at them!) and assist in the adult classes. I'm also going to be assisting in Brick Handbag, which is a self defence course/class for women. Because this is what you do with a degree in drawing, right?
I used to want to act, still do actually, it's another passion of mine. Just when I think that it wont happen and I'm getting on well, the want to do it comes back. Watching Mr. Baker's and the other's performances has encouraged me, in a way - I had/have been very intimidated by actually going for it, and they make it look very friendly, fun and silly. (Even though I am aware that it involves a lot of hard slog and patience as well!)
Sometimes the time just isn't right in life though, and this may be the case for me right now. However, I'm keeping a beady eye open, and I don't want to give up on this dream just yet! I'm very lucky though, I love teaching the kids and helping the adults. I feel very fortunate to have that oppourtunity, I do like helping people and being very silly, both of which it they entail me to do.
Anyway that's definitely more than enough about me!
I wasn't even born when the fourth doctor was on TV the first time - and yet I've somehow still managed to become addicted to it. (Thank you Internet!) Technically Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant are my Doctors, and though I admire them and think they did a wonderful job, I still consider Mr. Baker's Doctor to be 'my' Doctor, even though it was on before I was born. (Not just because it was great to find someone with hair as unruly as mine! Fabulous!)
The only other productions I've seen with the man himself are Agatha Christie's Marple just recently when I came home for Christmas. I actually squealed with delight when I saw him on there! My parents wondered what on Earth I was so excited about. (Oh, and Little Britain. I don't think it would be the same without that narration.
Whoops! I did go on a ramble. Very sorry about the length of this post, I hope it's readable, and at least gives some small insight into what's going on. Now hopefully I can post daft things and not seem like a total crackpot!
I also hope that Tom has many more enjoyable, fun-filled and silly years to come. Maybe one day I'll get to wave hello and pull a silly face. (Though of course, it's easy to sound confident here on internet forums - I'd actually get stupidly shy!
Best wishes and hoping the New Year is treating you all marvelously!
