Welcome to Sofia's Pencil

From a cat’s yawn to the Norwegian fjords, there are thousands of things in life that seem to have been designed just to amaze us!

Hi there! I’m Sofia, the owner of the Pencil and writer of this blog. Passionate about too many things (from the human body and soul to the power of plants, the magic of the Internet and the beauty of our Earth), I have been trying to blog about them for years and years. I have always been a close friend to unfinished projects, but Sofia’s Pencil promises to be the one that could change everything forever!

Are you ready for it?

This Autumn: Back to School!

I finished my studies in Modern Languages and Literature at University of Granada (Spain) on 2016. It took me a while, as I was really more into theatre and drinking than studying… Shouldn’t have said that. Ooops! 

It never occurred to me that I could end up studying a postgraduate degree on Creative Writing in University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and in another language. Well, I always said I like challenges. That’s why I chose Russian as a Lingua Maior in my Bachelor’s Degree… The root of all my problems! (Not really, no)

So here’s to a new school year and everything that comes with it! And cheers to me too, for following my dreams even though that will probably mean being poor forever 🥳
