Five weeks behind in English homework, I’ve decided to kick start this blog off to avoid facing the reality of the essay due in tomorrow.
To be honest, I’m not sure where this blog will take us. Based in Scotland, heart bound for California with my head in the clouds, I am still getting to know myself; I am still learning to accept myself. A keen snowboarder, traveller and virtual comedian. I am also a member of my local BSAC scuba diving club working towards my Ocean Diver qualification.
I’d say I’ve had OCD for as long as I can remember, but I think OCD is just me. What isn’t me is the perception altering illness that has corrupted my brain for the past three years.
Social media offers us the opportunity to create a controlled image of ourselves, and while the temptation to create one of perfection is strong, this won’t be that. My life is full of extremes, both good and bad, and this blog will offer an honest, balanced insight to both.
Today is day 0 and writing has always offered release. So in the spirit of good habit, welcome yourself to these writings from sanity’s outsider, and I hope you enjoy strange musing with me.
