Right, so, this is blogging. The start of something big? Probably not. As an English Literature student I thought it appropriate to start a blog, not only that, but, perhaps most importantly, I enjoy writing, and I enjoy thinking about things, and like anyone I enjoy forming my own opinions on them… and so I thought a blog would be a good place to express these opinions and ideas for all the world to see. Whether anyone will actually give a sh*t is another question entirely…
Essentially, it’s just a personal experiment to see whether or not venting my opinions via this medium is effective, as opposed to actually talking about them with the people with which many of things I will write about mostly concern, which won’t happen either because I will likely never meet them or because I don’t have the balls to talk about them on a face to face basis and so hiding behind a computer screen is the best way to discuss such matters, analogous to trolling, you might say (but hopefully not – I would be gutted if that term were to be afixed to my internet writing endeavours, as they [‘trolls’] are one of my pet hates, about which I will no doubt discuss on this blog)… Of course, I will also rant about a variety of other worldly matters which are far from involving the human race.
So, in that sense, it might only be something small, but, in the words of what someone somewhere once said:
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
Well, I’m already rambling – but since that’s part of the namesake of this blog I guess it won’t do too much harm. Anyway, so you know what to expect in future blogs – I will no doubt talk a lot about cars, planes and basically anything which is powered by an engine, and everything related, as that has always been something of great fascination to me; student life and University and all the struggles and joys of it; the good and bad of money; religion, science, atheism and the massive amounts of bullsh*t and debate that comes from the area of conflict between them; music, film and TV and its influence on my life… and anything else that I feel the need to write about. Ultimately this will be a means of dealing with and making sense of the great bombardments of everything the world scatters all over the rich tapestry of life…
The start of something big? Who knows…
That’s all for now folks.
