Tamsin answers our questions…
1. If you could only live with one piece of technology, what would it be? (Yes, that includes cars, mobile and TV’s!)
My Nintendo Switch! I spent all of lockdown switching between Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, the escapism was invaluable!
2. What’s your favourite thing about working at Siren Search?
The people! I’ve only just started here, but everyone has been so welcoming and it is really so clear how passionate everyone is about the work that they do, which pushes you to do better yourself.
3. If you could only live with one app for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Probably the Kindle app – I love being able to read wherever I go, and it syncs up with my actual Kindle so I can swap between them so easily. Plus, I’m way behind on my 2021 Goodreads Reading Challenge so deleting all my other apps would probably give me a chance to catch up…
4. What’s one thing that you want to do in your lifetime (e.g. visit a certain country, do a skydive, own a cat)
This desire might be the result of the several hundred hours of Stardew Valley, but I want to learn how to be good at gardening. I keep killing my plants, even the apparently unkillable succulents. I say it’s too much love, Google says it’s root rot from overwatering. My Grandad has an amazing garden where he grows the best vegetables, so I want to learn how to do that too.
5. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Musicals! I’ve yet to see one on stage yet; that’s definitely one for the bucket list.
6. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
I follow my dog, Stella, around the house and dramatically narrate everything that she does, because she’s the main character in the movie of my life. I also collect novelty earrings and skeleton ornaments. My favourite from both collections are my glow in the dark skeleton earrings.
7. What are you passionate about?
Languages! I really like being able to connect with people using the language of their heart, and learning more about culture and history that is uniquely related through the way people speak and the way that a language’s grammar and usage has evolved. My ultimate goal in life is to one day get the highest level on the Japanese Language Proficiency test (I’m one level off!)
8. Who inspires you?
My family! They’re all wonderful people who have achieved great things, and all I want to do in life is make them proud.
9. If you asked your friends to describe you in 3 words – what would they be?
Taken from a short survey: “Short, Passionate, Skeletons”
10. Bonus – If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
I’d love to have X-Ray Vision, because I lose things really easily so it means I’d be able to find them again, and I just think skeletons are really cool.
