Hi! I'm Ren :)

Hello!

My name is Lauren but feel free to call me Ren. I am 21 and about to graduate from university with a degree in Sociology and Criminology with the hopes of training to be a counsellor in the near future.

I am a huge fan of true crime, both TV dramas and books, I love baking and my favourite animal is a red panda. I am also quite into my music, I can't play any instruments unfortunately but I love to analyse songs and their meaning :)

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

    @LorryTruck

    Awesome! what sort of music do you like?

    @renw I like metal and rock. Anything that isnt jazzy or too slow. What about you?

    I like a bit of everything really, it depends on my mood but I'm partial to some acoustic pop and I'm also a big fan of The Beatles and Abba

    @LorryTruck

    Ooo that's a difficult question. I really like Golden Slumbers by The Beatles and Him by James Marriott. What about you?

    @renw Aargh thats such a hard question. I know a band called Citizen Soldier, they write really sad songs that are so relatable, and they just released a song called Never ending nightmare, and I love it. It's literally on repeat.

    Well it sort of depends, I have a new favourite song everyday

    Ooo that sounds good, I love it when you can find songs that you can relate to. I agree with the changing favourites too, I think music is very dependent on the mood you're in

    Hello!

    Welcome to the Mix! <3
    It's good to have you here! :3

    Ah. A fellow true crime enthusiast, I see. Watched anything new recently?
    I finished watching the Night Stalker series on Netflix and it gave me the chills.

    Ooh! ABBA is absolute gold! Got any favourites from them??
    Do you watch James Marriott??

    Hi @lovemimoon

    Thank you!

    I haven't had the opportunity to watch anything recently due to the level of university work I have had to do but the Night Stalker is definitely on my list of things to watch!

    I have got to say that take a chance on me and does your mother know that you're out are some of my faves by ABBA, what about you?
    I do watch James Marriott yes :) do you?
  • lovemimoonlovemimoon šŸ¦‹ Posts: 2,258 Boards Champion
    @renw Ahh. Uni work. A complete bitch to handle but satisfying when you finish it!

    What else is on your 'to watch' list??

    For ABBA - hands down 'Voulez-Vouz' and 'Gimme Gimme Gimme.' 'Chiquitita' if I'm in a bit of happy/depressive mood.
    'Take A Chance On Me' is an absolute classic! Stuck in my head now but it's a good thing. :joy:

    Used to! Used to watch a lot of Youtubers but I took a huge break from the platform. Who else do you watch??
  • renwrenw Posts: 20 Boards Initiate
    @lovemimoon

    The ones at the top of my watchlist are Whitehouse Farm and I am a Killer so I'll get started on those soon.

    Voulez-Vouz is a tune, always have to sing along to that one if it starts playing!

    I watch youtube quite a bit but I only stick to a few, some of my faves are WillNE, Danny Gonzalez and Wilbur Soot (I like both his music and his videos)

    @renw

    I Am A Killer is so good! Some broke my heart and it just widens your perspectives on things, you know?

    YEESS! THANK YOOU! :confounded:<3
    We should have some kind of an ABBA karaoke someday? Or is that going too far? :joy: What else do you listen to?

    Oooh! I love them so much! Their humour never gets old. :joy: Wilbur Soot from Soothouse?
  • renwrenw Posts: 20 Boards Initiate
    @lovemimoon
    Oooo, I'm even more excited to watch that now!
    Always down for some ABBA karaoke šŸ˜‚

    Yeah, wilbur from soothouse, I love the soothouse bunch.
