Hi! My name’s Jaina. Born and bred in the UK. I’ve lived/been schooled/worked around London for my whole life. Up until May 2014 when I moved a few thousand miles away to Bahrain. If you’d have asked me a few years ago, would I ever consider moving out of the UK to Bahrain, my answer probably would have been, “Where’s Bahrain?”.

What am I doing?

I currently work Litmus as an Email Marketing Specialist. Want to see what I do? Check out my portfolio or visit my other blogs – Just Another Email Blog and Brutally Honest Bahrain.

What do I like to do?

Over the top
Really enjoy photography, in a very amateur sort of way. Bought a DSLR (Nikon D5000) and I’m gradually learning to use it properly. You can have a look at my Google+ Photos if you want to see some photos that I take. I’ll occasionally post some to Twitter too.

Often find myself wishing there were more hours in the day just so I can set aside some time for some films. There are just so many I want to see. I try to keep track of the films I see on a regular basis right here. What type of films do I like? Anything. From documentary to ridiculously over the top action to sci-fi to a hearty comedy. Bring it.

Along with film, I do consume a fair bit of TV too. A lot less than I used to, but I think that’s down to me figuring out that I don’t have to watch absolutely everything and anything.

Currently watching: The Americans, Atlanta, Baskets, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Humans, The Grand Tour, The Great British Bake Off, The Knick, Mr. Robot, Narcos, Suits, Top Gear, Westworld.

I think that’s it. I’ll remember a show and add it to the list.

About the blog

I started Time-WellSpent.com in January 2010 mainly as a dumping ground for my first 365 photo project and film challenge I was doing that year. Scattered in amongst film and photo posts were the odd bit of gumpf from me. But not much.

Somewhere between late 2010 and mid 2011 I decided I wanted to make more of a go of the blogging thing I was attempting. So started posting more frequently. Things that were on my mind, photos, design related things. Anything I could think of.

TWS is very much my personal blog—it’s where I post and share my thoughts on a variety of topics. Take a look at my categories and tags to get an idea.
