About my blog

This is my blog.  There are many like it but this one is mine.

Yeah it’s kind of a cheesy title but I’m going to run with it anyway.  I’ll be using this as almost a diary, to get some of my thoughts and musings out.

To give you some context, I’ve recently turned thirty and I’d probably describe myself as a failed scientist, writer and person in general.  Failed because I ended up not finishing the PhD I spent nearly four years on due to depression and anxiety issues; my personal writing has never been published, other than what I’ve put out myself on “teh internetz”; and I’m currently thirty, single and unemployed, again partly due to those pesky depression and anxiety issues.

Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t given up and I think it’s entirely possible that I can turn everything around and be at least a partly productive, functioning member of society.  And I also don’t want you to get the wrong idea about this blog.  It will not be entirely about how shit my life is at any given moment or an excuse to wallow in self-pity.  It won’t.

OK there might be some of that now and again, but mostly I want to use this as a way to talk about whatever I’m thinking about on any given day.  Hopefully this means the topics will run the gamut, and regardless of who you are you might find the odd interesting post.  I doubt anyone will get a kick out of everything I post.  If you do you may be as messed up as I am!

Follow if you like, check in for the occasional post or read this intro and move on.  I’m sure I’ll say something at some point to alienate everyone who’s reading this, but until then you’re very welcome to stay and hang out.

  1. At thirty you have many years ahead of you to finish off things you’ve left for the present. The PhD can always be done when you’ve decided which way you want your career to go. My eldest daughter recently finished hers, in analytical chemistry, after a break of several years from her masters. She is now 42, As for your writing, is you’re serious about it, I would advise not leaving things too late. I did’nt get round to writing my first novel until I had retired from teaching. Much too late! Think positively and believe you can do these things. Best wishes to you.
