I’m what the old fogies call a “Typical Millennial”. I own a bike I rarely ride, I have an undercut, I try to take my travel mug with me everywhere, and I rely on my phone, large quantities of good caffeine to get me through the day and I’m on a mission to eat as much smashed avo as I can.
That being said, I don’t have social media, I read newspapers, and I call people younger than me “youths”. I also use a lot of commas and type how I speak. I am for the Oxford Comma, and I’ll happily discuss this stance with you.
I’m an optimistic nihilist who believes in radical kindness, likes a good rant, and dishing out unsolicited life advice. I often write frivolous rubbish but I sometimes come out with pearls of wisdom. I have no idea what I’m doing with my life or this blog. The plan changes regularly for both, and since I was diagnosed with ADD, all the things I’ve struggled with in life have started to make more sense. I kind of enjoy the adventure in that, though.
I was published at 13 or 14 years old with a really, really shit short story, but I found a creative outlet that I liked. I’ve never really done anything to improve on the craft and I don’t really intend to improve too much.
I play multiple instruments about as badly as I write, and I like to read everything I can get my hands on and my hobbies change seasonally (turns out that’s called “hyperfixation”!). My biggest regret is, even if I lived forever, I’d never have enough time to read all the books I want to and consume all the media I wish to. I also don’t really believe in regret.
I’m opinionated, but I relish my beliefs and opinions being challenged. It gives me a chance to grow and learn. I find challenging preconceived ideas to be useful for everyone. Ignorance is only bliss for the ignorant.
Things you should expect from me as an “author”:
1. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. We’re all too tired to have high expectations of strangers. (You’re welcome).
