OH. Hey there!

Looks like you've stumbled across your opportunity to get to know me a little bit more. (Fun, right?!) I'll go ahead and introduce myself with some information that doesn't make it to my dating profiles. First things first: I'm Shannon! Also known as Shan, Shanners or whatever other variation has cropped up over the years. I'm 25 and I live in Essex just a train away from London! (No TOWIE connections, fortunately)

SS has had me as a member for almost 14 years now - the 15th of this month is my 14 year anniversary! I've come and gone a couple of times because life hasn't been the kindest, but I've always found my way back home with a new lease of SS life. I love the community we've built and that we change with time and also with our members growing up and it's been lovely to see some members flourish on site. Over the years I have held positions in a few areas of the site and love everything I've had the pleasure of being part of.

I LOVE creating. I thrive in creative situations and being able to create things from scratch, especially in the RP world. There's something so addictive about it and I doubt I'll recover any time soon. (Well, I hope not)

Outside of SS, I work in education. I'm currently a teaching assistant in a primary school and have experience as a nursery teacher and a nursery manager. I'm hoping to undertake my official teacher training beginning next September. (I have my first interview on Tuesday - wish me luck!) My hobbies include musical theatre, binge watching reality tv and make up!

I'm also going to ask every single one of YOU something too. How are you? What's something that made you happy today?

You'll be amazing <3 I know you will.

I'm doing okay, feeling better than this morning -- even though I'm on day five of having no voice. But thats okay, we don't need voices to be part of SS <3

Soooo;

1) If you were to sit with your friends and have tea (or wait, we did that) - what biscuit would you want to have with it?

2) FAvourite kind of take away??

3) Which character would you want to be related to and why? (either of your own, or someone else's)

<3 Adore you Shan <3

BES FREN!

1. Her name is Les Mis and she is the love of my life

2. Mate.. Rimmel, hands down. I mean, I know it isn't great for everyone but I've never had a problem with anything from them and I know I can get stuff that isn't going to break me out stupid levels.

3. Favourite would be Charms. BUT I think my best would be Herbology. I'm never good at the things I love

4. UM YES. I THINK. I NEED TO ADD IT TO MY SKY PLANNER. BUT I'M REALLY UPSET THAT IT'S SUMMER THEMED THOUGH. I WANTED SKI LODGES AND HOT CHOCOLATES.

*squishes* Hi, lovebug

1. I hate them all. Probbbbably Mama Stemp? She's been on the biggest development arc and I think she's grown more than even I thought she could and she's been the reason I've made new friends on site and yeah.. Plus she's mean when she wants to be and sometimes those are the most fun to play.

2. There's always something magical about reading the first book. It started this all for me and I absolutely adore the nostalgia that comes with it.

3. My grandparents started it all. They used to take us to shows twice a year growing up and then... I took performing arts in school and loved the heart behind musical theatre even though I could never sing.

Hai bub, ily.

1. Gingernut biscuits! My favourites.

2. Fish and chips. Or Chinese food. I'm easy.

3. I WOULD GIVE MY EVERY LIMB TO BE A STEMP. (Soz to everyone elses characters because they're probably awesome and all but I have loyalties)

SHAAAAAAAAAN.

To answer your question, I'm good and watching bookish videos on YouTube made me smile today!

Now I have a few questions for you and I'm afraid they're all theatre themed!

1. If you could play a character in any musical, who would it be and why?

2. Which school term plot (from SS) would you turn into a musical theatre production if you could? Idk if this is a good question but oh wellllllll.

3. Have you ever considered combining your love of theatre and your love for creating worlds? If you wrote a musical, what would the plot be about??

oh hi fancy seeing you here. i see u made use of ur uno reverse card. i am feeling kind of icky and sicky, but I don't think it'll last much longer. something that made me happy today? all i've done is SLEEP tbh, but my mom gave me a bottle of saffron (lol) and I used a bit of it for my riCE so we'll see how that turns out.

1. What's something that made YOU happy today?
2. Out of all the positions ic / ooc you've had around site, which one was one of your favorites and WHY?
3. You have many characters that we all know and love. But do all of your characters know and love each other? THAT WASN'T THE REAL QUESTION THAT WAS JUST THE SET UP. Which of your two characters would be the most entertaining to throw in a locked room together and WHY?

Hi, Shan. I'm good, just chatting with my friends at school made me happy today.

What is it like working in education? What do you find most enjoyable and most challenging?

The best thing today was getting to work early and enjoying a coffee. Sounds trite, but the day is young (for me).

I dabble in education. How do you deal with problematic kids that act volatile in the class?

NATTINGTON!

I hope you're still good, squish. <3

1. This changes way too often, but right now Heather Mac in Heathers. She has a pretty wonderful arc in the show and Lifeboat is one of my favourite shower songs.

2. I LOVE THIS QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The first one that comes to mind is the Triwizard Tournament term. But that could work for any of the magical tournament terms. Could you imagine the staging? The angst filled ballad after doing badly? The BALL?! Why do I feel like Rooney Bronwyn would write a show based on this whole thing? lol lol lol.

3. I... have not. I guess I'd want to stick close to things I know well.. education or the care system. I... don't know. Wow. You've got me stumped.

I hope saffron was GREAT on your rice, bub.

1. My parents left for a few days and I took a really great nap on the sofa with my dogs.

2. Hm. Hm. HM. Can i just say being a member of site? No? Okay.. I guess Department Head, so far. I love working with the team and I love giving people encouragement to play adult characters that they often struggle to. I think we all know the struggle of finding adult characters tough to play or introduce as new. I love that the ministry still gives us that. I'm very excited for this chapter with the school RP too, though. I've never said yes to something I wasn't excited about, though. But definitely getting to play Eliora in her dream role and getting to facilitate that area of the RP has been super fulfilling and fun.

3. lol lol lol. This has happened to my characters and it was the funniest thing to ever happen. I'd say teen Saffron and Rooney. Or Rooney and Odaline. Whaaaat about yours?

I LOVE working in education! Love it, love it. I've been doing it in different ways since I was 16. Funnily enough, the thing I most enjoy is overcoming the challenges. Tough kids, tough curriculum, tough workplaces. It takes hard work to get over those hurdles and a whole lot of love for education. I love my job.

Hi!

1. When I taught nursery for a year, it wasn't much different to being a manager of a private nursery. So I found the transition to be pretty easy, BUT.. teaching is difficult. It's always going to be difficult. Kids are different by the day and sometimes even by the hour. You have to work with thirty different moods, different behaviour patterns and different upbringings. And bring that all together to create a cohesive unit of a class, while teaching a dictated curriculum and meeting targets and all of the behind the scenes rubbish. It's worth it, though. Passing a class up to their new teacher in July and knowing that you've done everything in your power to help is... warming.

2. Now, this is something that changes all the time for me. Each time I watch or read it's a different answer. Right now, it's Remus.

3. I live just outside of London, but I spend a lot of time there and tbh it's busy and full of gross and the weather is way too often miserable. BUT it has times of the year when it's magical -- CHRISTMAS ESPECIALLY!

I love a morning coffee when you get to work early! I specifically get the earlier bus to work right now so I can do just that.

There are policies in different work places to deal with that, but tbh... I make sure I know my kids and I know ways around negative behaviours. It's why I love what I do and why I have such a good relationship with the kiddos in my classes.


--

I hope everyone is having a wonderful festive period!
