Sorry for all the oddities on my blog at the moment, I know there's some funny elements and missing links. I've just started this blog and I'm still working out the kinks, but it will all be fixed up ASAP. Cheers :)

So What is this Blog all about?.... (ie: My incredibly long Intro)

         OK well hello everybody. You're probably all wondering what this blog will be about, and why I'm blogging? Well, your not alone in that question because I'm asking it too, and the only answer that comes to my mind is "Why not?". Seriously though, I blogged last year as part of an Oxfam project, and I used to be an (almost) daily vlogger, so the idea of Blogging has always interested me. I also have always had a love for writing, for conversation, creativity, and more generally expression. And finally, I love idea's, I love people, and it's only when people and idea's are connected that change and progress happens. It's gotten to a point where my friends are writing awesome blogs, and the instinct for me to join them is overwhelming. So, I guess that's why I'm here :).

         The next thing I should tell you is what this blog will be about, but once again there's no clear answer here. It's going to be both a personal journal for me, and also an outlet where I hope to start interesting conversations. I'll start by telling you what you probably can't expect from my blog:
  • Consistency...
    • Sorry guys, it aint gonna happen. My mind is about as random as a rainbow turning up in the middle of a drought stricken dessert after the appearance of a rabbit in a tuxedo...?
  • Perfect Grammar, Spelling, etc...
    • In writing this blog I've used spell checker more than you'd ever believe. I am a Uni student who has to stress with every piece of writing I submit because honestly grammar is my weakness. So, while I will do my best to write well, I'm not stressing to much over this blog, so you'll just have to grit your teeth and bare it! :p
  • Regularly scheduled posts...
    • Yeah, I'll repeat it one more time: "I'm a Uni student", I also have depression and some other health considerations. So I'll try to post whenever I can and it's not just going to be pointless. but don't wait up.
Now, what you can expect:

  • Psychological and Philosophical related posts
    • My two main areas of academic interest.
  • Creative Writing
    • Poetry, Song Lyrics, Maybe even a short story or two
  • Sharing of the Internetz
    • The Web is fun!!!! Sooooo much fun!!! And fun is always better shared.
  • Rambling, Reflection, Questioning, etc...
    • Lot's of it.

Alright so that's my blog covered, now what about me... (does anyone else have that Shannon Noll song in their head now or is it just me?) As I said before I'm a Psychology student, studying via a Bachelor of Arts so I can also study Philosophy. However, my long term goal is to actually study sociology as well, and then be able to treat people for both their psychological needs and their sociological circumstances. I grew up with some physical weaknesses, which I often cruelly phrase as "I was born Retarded", and also into a household and family that strangely belonged to two socio-economic groups simultaneously. This meant I was exposed to all sorts of thing at a very young age, so thats where I guess I got my inspiration for my career goals. Before I went to study I worked in retail and sales for 8 years, selling electronics, manchester, and banking products. I've also done volunteer work in aged care, general fund raising & awareness, and also briefly acted as a co-convener for an LGBTI rights group here in Sydney called CAAH (Community Action against Homophobia)

I Love people, conversation, movies, and music. The movie 'Empire Records' (1995) is an obsession of mine, along with 'Almost Famous', and I loved 'Inception'. Music-wise my tastes are very varied, but more mainstream than anything else. I am a lyrics person though, and probably would have to say R&B and Dance are my favourite Genre's, including the Artful Dodger & Babyface. 

I think that's about all there is I need to tell you. If you have any questions please ask, I really want to make this blog as interactive as possible, and now I will bid you farewell till next time. Have a great day
