I shall be 23 soon. I used to get really anal about my birthdays (LOLS) I don’t know why that’s funny btw.
I seem to be the kind of person who knows lots of people. And I have a problem with keeping things lo-key. It doesn’t happen.
After all the tears, and drama of the past few years, albeit there have been good times, I’ve realised that you don’t need to have a big shindig on your birthday (and when I say you I mean me) and give yourself lots of grief.
I didn’t plan to do anything this year – but people have made “Oww” faces at me, and you know, something to signify the passing of another year. Because a lot always changes in a year – well in my years that pass, they do.
As long as I get to spend some time with the people I love on my birthday, then that’s all I need. And a pony.
I shall leave you with that thought – and also one of my favourite songs ever, by one of the best bands ever and one of the best birthday-related songs ever.
… writes better than me. He should be a writer. But yet he’s a mathematician.
Read me get merkled here.
Anyone can be a writer these days. I’m not gonna go on how blogs, Twitter and everything else has ‘revolutionised’ or ‘dumbed down’ the writing sphere. Anyone can call themselves a writer – it is true. How do you judge the worth of a writer? Whether you’ve had something published? I’ve had pieces published. But what of it, if no-one reads it?
My biggest coup to date is being published in Time Out, 3 weeks in a row. But they were small pieces, in a corner, I doubt anyone would have read them. But I’m still proud of it – because I’m on the up, I hope.
Blogging is, however, a great way to put yourself out there to the whole global community. However I think it should be your starting off point, diving board you are WordPress. Look at Ta’Vi, Scott Schuman (although his is a photo blog) and Susie Bubble, they have avid followers from around the world. However do people follow them because they genuinely are interested in what they post – or because everyone else does it? Same with books, magazines, popular music, fashions…
Anyway the post title is a line from this weeks’ “Bones” – David Boreanaz is sexier in it than he was in Angel, no lie. Didn’t think it was possible eh? At least as an FBI agent he can age, and damn does he age WELL.

So I have my Columbia Writing Test tomorrow, for my MS app for the Journalism school.
Bricking it. No idea how it’ll go. It’s critical thinking and analysis, something I’m shit at, because I can’t think logically. I don’t go from A to B – it’s more A to 3 to D to Z to ^ to K.
Also more other shit coming up this week, bollocks.
Will write more when I have a chance…
I’ve been thinking of starting a new blog for a while – but I didn’t want to be another pointless blogger (but aren’t we all in the greater scheme of things?).
Speaking to a good friend of mine Tina G, whose link to her blog is on the bottom right of the page, I ran my idea for a blog by her. As always, she was supportive, but she’s a smart lady, and I owe her a lot-ot ot ot.
Including the name of this blog. So please enjoy. Or at least feel you wasted 5 minutes doing something amusing.
