So, this is a personal blog so I doubt anyone is really going to read it. However, I am writing this on a work computer so hopefully they don’t monitor this shit. 

Basically, I created this blog as a place to vent my feelings about things and hopefully be able to put my stupid brain on the right track when it comes to coherency.  These “things” that I rant about will vary between whatever has most recently pissed me off, whatever I last watched, whatever I’m currently playing or any random thought that occurs to me and I start overthinking about.

I’m going to try and keep it as anonymous as possible, so no names, but if anyone does happen to join the dots on any specific experiences, just keep shtum. I swear I will never speak again if some of things I intend to put out into the universe via this blog actually come to light in my actual IRL personal life. 

Soooo… interest-wise I’m pretty basic in the sense that I hyperfocus on whatever film, TV Show, game, book etc. I’ve most recently discovered. There’s a special collection of things that I go back to and have phases of. My fiance likes to imagine that I have a wheel of interests that spins at any random moment and whatever it lands on is whatever I fixate on until the wheel randomly turns again. 

Music-wise, I’m currently in a phase of making character playlists which can include absolutely anything and listening to those on repeat. However, I’ve just done my Spotify Wrapped for 2018 and I can tell you that my top 5 artists are Ansel Elgort (who I only realised made music around about the same time I joined Spotify, aka July), Panic! At The Disco, Demi Lovato, Hozier and Fall Out Boy. But that barely covers the tip of the iceberg. My taste in music isn’t necessarily something I’m proud of (I don’t exactly lord it over people, nor do I deem other people inferior for not knowing whatever random artist I found a month ago and am listening to on repeat, I’m not that kind of dickhead), but it is something I pride myself on (it makes me happy when people point out my varied music taste after being subjected to any of my playlists). I hope that makes sense and doesn’t make me sound like a dickhead, because that is what I’m trying to avoid.

It’s the same with films. I will watch anything, I enjoy a bit of everything and there’s something I dislike in everything as well. If something is panned by the critics but loved by the audience, I can usually see good points from both sides. I hate those film buffs who criticise actual people for enjoying blockbusters because they’re mindless enjoyment, when that is exactly the point. 

Anyway, now that something of an introduction has been made, I should really get on with my work.

Until next time,

The Sleepy Loudmouth.
