This is my very first blog that I have ever written. Really it is. So I am not entirely sure where I want to start. I guess I should explain my motivation for writing this. Like many of the good ideas I have, it was not mine. It was my partner’s idea and the minute she suggested it, it just instantly appealed to me.
I used to write a diary and when things became more hectic and muddled, I would at least write messy scribbles on random bits of paper or at the bottom of my academic diary. However as the last year has passed by, I noticed that I have stopped doing this altogether. I did not consciously decide to do this but just found my mind becoming ever more busy and any time I did have became dedicated to other things. These included trying to study Italian in a haphazard way as my partner comes from Italy and her family speak very little English. It also included reading magazines and messing around with my phone. Yes, this year I got my first ever smart phone and that was pretty much the end of my reflective thinking on public transport. It certainly marked the end of the diary entries.
So the idea of this blog is simply that it be a kind of public diary that I won’t lose, cover in jam or accidently throw away. It may also help both myself and other people understand what is going on inside of me. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
