About Me

What is compassionandcuriosity.com all about and who am I?

Well, who are you? If you were a fruit, which fruit would you be?

A sweet strawberry? A bitter lemon? A hairy (?!) coconut?

Okay… here’s a trickier one: if you had to say your two most important values in life, what would they be?

My name is Eliza Hall, I’m 23, based near Manchester in the UK and if I had to narrow it down to two values I think the world needs more of, they’d be Compassion and Curiosity. Hence compassionandcuriosity.com!

Oh, and for the record, I’d be a cheeky cherry – great when paired with chocolate, a bit tart and very good for you actually. Hopefully, I’ll be at least a little bit good for you anyway. Do stick around to find out.

You’ve probably already noticed I LOVE TO ASK QUESTIONS. My poor mum grew up with me asking “Why?” like a stuck record. I just like exploring ideas and concepts. Compassionandcuriosity.com was born out of my desire to share my infinite questions and the rambling answers I come up with along the way.

That’s where the curiosity part comes in.

I love connecting with people who can teach me things. What better way to do that than to start a blog? There’s a whole internet world of youout there. So here I am, writing away into the world and hoping people find value in it.

What will I share?

I’m curious about pretty much everything so I’m not limiting what I’ll be writing about but expect bits about food, people, concepts, relationships and food. Did I say that already? Yes, I’m super passionate about food. I love learning how to cook new things. I have been vegan for a little over a year so all my recipes are plant based.

So, this is where the compassion comes in.

I’m living a vegan lifestyle as I want to minimise my impact on other earthlings, the planet and my own health. If you’re not vegan, you’re a terrible person so get off this site now. I JOKE, I JOKE, please come back! Please! Ahah, you’re still here… You’ll get used to my sarcasm. Probably. Hopefully. Or you’ll ignore all my jibber jabber and just use my recipes and that’s absolutely okay too! Anyway, this blog is supposed to be interesting (no pressure) and useful (even more pressure) to everyone who finds themselves here.

So there it is in a nutshell, my blog’s mission, if you like:

To share my honest thoughts on living a deliberately compassionate and curious life!
