812 Days

It’s hard to believe that this blog was my daily output, my safe space, my place where I would go constantly to release my inner thoughts and share them with the world. It’s hard to believe all of that when it has been 812 days since I last posted.

812 days is a long time, a day is a long time on some occasions. There’s two options I faced when logging back in, I could write down all the main points from the past two years or I could just continue as though nothing had happened and there had been no hiatus.

When I looked through my past posts it became apparent how much things changed. There were posts about TV shows that are no longer here, undefeated fighters who are now defeated, a YouTube channel that fell by the wayside and so much more. I think that’s the wonderful thing about having this page to look back on, it really opens your eyes to how much things are changing even when you don’t realise it.

Two years ago I had just gotten a new job, was single, living in my own wee flat which wasn’t the nicest place and spent much of time gaming and blogging. These days I share a beautiful seaside flat with my amazing other half (she puts up with so much nonsense I’m surprised she’s lasted this long) I’ve left that job for reasons that I cannot disclose and I spend much of my time…gaming and thinking about blogging. So most things have changed if not all.

In August of this year I’m hoping to study Media Analysis, I say hoping because I still have the interview stage to get past which is next Wednesday. I think that finally I can study something that I really want to do and hopefully progress in a career which involves writing and media and just bring together most of the things that I’m passionate about.

On a completely unrelated note, last night I went to see Penn and Teller live and it blew me away. I also met Penn so here’s a cheeky selfie


As for this here blog…

I’m back, and I don’t plan on going away anytime soon.



Back to basics.

Blogging has been a hobby of mine for so long now, it’s hard to remember a time when it hasn’t been something that I’ve done regularly. Of course anyone who’s followed my blogs in the last couple of years will know that I’ve been concentrating on music and as much as I love music I think it’s time to go back to basics and start properly blogging again.

Who knows, I might actually write something worth reading. Gone are my days of writing articles for the newspaper and gone are my days of reviewing albums and gigs. It’s time to start exploring what else lies in my mind and can be put into words for the rest of the world to see.

I enjoy writing, I enjoy reading and I enjoy telling stories. I think that story telling is an art, anyone can tell a tale but to make it into a story and have people interested is a whole different ball game.

Do I think that people will love what I write here? Probably not.

Do I hope that it’s entertaining and worth reading? That’s the goal.

It’s time to go back to basics.
