Hi! My name is Elisha and welcome to my site ‘Elisha Blogs‘…
So a little about me…
Well, my name is Elisha! I’m 24 and I’m from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.
I’ve spent the last 5 years living all over the place – from Guildford in Surrey, for drama school, to then living in Richmond in London for 6 months, before living in Toronto in Canada, and then travelling Europe and the Caribbean working as a performer for Disney Cruiseline.
I am currently living in Leeds, rebelling against the notion that British actors should live in London because it is where all the auditions are. I am also rebelling against the idea that, nowadays, in order to be a ‘cool, Cosmopolitan 20-something’ you have to be slogging it away down in the ‘Big Smoke’ because ‘that’s where everything good is’.
I have been blogging for about 5 years as a hobby, and I particularly enjoy writing my ramblings, theatre reviews, and about the North of England and the great things there are to do up here! I believe that you don’t have to live in London to have a ‘cosmopolitan lifestyle’.
Up North you can have it all – live in a nice place, in a decent area, with great bars and restaurants on your doorstep (both chain and independent), be able to attend great events/shows, live the instagram lifestyle we all try to emulate, AND be able to afford it all!
And I’m going to tell you about all the awesome places/things I encounter in the hopes that you, too, can enjoy the finer things in life up North…
I hope you enjoy reading my rambles!
Happy reading 🙂
