I’ll try not to make this an autobiography, because after all, who wants to hear about the life and times of some teen from Essex!
I suppose the main things which I should make clear are what I want to get from this ‘blog-type thing’ and why.
The main reason why I made this ‘blog-type thing’ and in fact pretty much everything I’ve ever done online is my importance in the world – or rather, the lack of it! As I’m sitting here, writing this at 1:19am on a Saturday morning, I know that there are 7 billion are humans who know neither that I exist, nor what I am doing.
And as a probably overly self aware human, I’ve always strived to ‘make my mark’ on the world. I’ve not managed it yet – and I’m not sure that I ever will, but in the process of ‘making my mark’ I feel that I’ve not only grown intellectually but also emotionally. I feel that I owe who I am to the Internet, and this is in part, me giving it something back, to add to it’s massive database of gifts.
Now don’t get me wrong, fame isn’t what I’m after, I don’t think I’d deal too well with fame, I would probably treat everyone as a friend, which apparently isn’t how it’s done.
I have however been told on many occasions that my mum once took me to a “psychic” when I was a baby, and she “foretold” that I would be famous. My mum of course doesn’t really believe in such things, but she has always been a very open minded person. Therefore, when something exciting happens todo with “me online”, I choose these as the times to give my parents little nuggets of insight into this Internet world. She tends to get terribly excited every-time this happens, and so has now adopted the attitude that “YouTube and twitter will provide me with a career, or at least, that’s where it’ll come from”, I am on the other hand, a little less hopeful.
I tend to spend a lot of time analysing things, and this is probably the only time in life when I voluntarily work with numbers. I will analyse people and their behaviours, and more recently, “famous youtubers” and their viewing figures. This, is the main reason as to why I sometimes struggle to match my mum’s enthusiasm for this particular subject.
ANYWAY – I said I wouldn’t make this a biography and I kind of have!
As you can see, my blog posts are NOT grammatically correct. They are written as though I would speak them, with commas at places where I would pause etc.
I also apologise for the many spelling mistakes and lack of sense in many of the sentences, but I feel rather reluctant to take the original tone and energy out of my posts by editing them to be completely correct. And so, for the time being, I shall keep, them, pure.
