I’ve moved this from my About Page because it seemed painfully long, last time I looked. And I’m really not that interesting. Some more background stuff for you to ignore…
The Black Sheep of the Blogosphere
As already mentioned, I have a blog going about my Gender Stuff specifically. It has, so far, been updated somewhat sporadically; the Issues of Blog Number One are large and complex, so I find it harder to articulate my thoughts in the gendered areas as well as I’d like. So I have a lot of posts stuck in Drafts, and very few actually on show to the world. And perfecting the pending posts takes time. Time which I don’t have. Blame it all on a chemist’s workload. But anyway, my point being that I am hoping to remain (fairly) anonymous on there, hence the lack of links to it floating around here.
That, and the fact that I realise it’s rather a… specialist subject? So, naturally, not everyone has the capacity for that level of complexity and open-mindedness yet. So that one’s off limits. Unless you’re desperate, of course, in which case, please contact me privately. Although I can’t see why you would.
The reason I mention the blog I’m deliberately keeping out of The Limelight is this: inevitable overlap. All my thoughts come from the same place, surprisingly enough – that is, the tiny little wrinkled grey pea that is my brain – so trying to keep them in two clearly defined, and separate, places may prove rather difficult. I’ll try to keep the hardcore gender stuff out of here though. Wouldn’t want to upset any delicate minds, would we? But regardless of my efforts-to-come, this is a warning: many of my experiences and opinions on things are coloured by gender. I can’t help it. They just are. Then again, if you have an Overactive Denial Gland, then you may want to avoid reading this. I won’t mind; in fact, I’ll probably be avoiding you anyway. It’s Open Mind Or Nothing with me. Sorry. Thinking about it, if you are one of Those People, you probably won’t have even managed to read this far. Thus, my point is moot. Read on if you dare.
But This Blog Is Different.
What the title said. It’s a Nothing-In-Particular Rambly Musings Blog. So, hopefully, my posts here will be less deep and soul-searchy… and therefore easier to read (let alone write). There’s no theme or long-running Important Topic lurking in the background in this little mind space; all I post here will have been extracted from my brain arbitrarily. Much like the Pensieve in Harry Potter – merely there to free up head space for More Important Things. Like studying for a chemistry degree… and food and TV and the weather and stuff. Ahem.
So… yeeees. That’s my blog, my reasoning, my odd-ness, and my self. I hope you can follow my ramblings, but I won’t hold it against you if you can’t bring yourself to visit here again because it’s Just Too Painful. Really, I won’t. I promise.
