So… who am I?

This is what I look like. When I'm happy.

This is what I look like when I’m happy.

Introductions are an awkward thing, aren’t they? Pen poised to paper, you wonder: do I go ‘Hi’? (too informal) ‘Hello’? (too formal) ‘Morning’? (too time-specific) ‘Good day ladies and gentlemen’? (a bit dramatic. But actually I’m a dramatic person, so let’s go with that.)

Good day ladies and gentlemen!
Welcome! Welcome to my blog.

I think the whole point of blogging (or a large part of it) is so that you can express your thoughts and feelings somewhat anonymously, so I won’t bother too much with specifics. A few key points that I find, well, key:

  • You’ve figured out my gender, I think.
  • Age? Hmm… now that’s a tricky one. Let’s say mid-20s.
  • Occupation? I’d like to say full-time student**, but I’m not really. It’s complicated. All you need to know is that my blogging isn’t endangering my job security. No matter how much time I appear to be spending on it. I write fast. And I procrastinate efficiently.
    **[October 2014 update] I like writing for you guys so much I’ve chosen a career in digital. Say hello to a newly-employed Internet Marketing Analyst! *fireworks*
  • Origin? Now, that’s a bit too much labelling, don’t you think? I think my origin will become quite clear as you read about various bits of my life, good and bad. Not sure where to start? This is as good a place as any.

Incidentally, this is not my first time blogging. A decade ago, I had a rather unfortunate page on a disused blogging website. Why unfortunate? Well, I was young(er). Lack of self-discipline + teenage hormones + immaturity = a sorry page of a blog. I’d like to think I’ll do better this time. We’ll see. Time will be the judge of it.

If you would like to get in touch, please do. I don’t bite. And I will endeavour to respond to all comments that adhere to house rules. Criticisms and suggestions are welcome. Suggestions of topics you want me to write about also welcome! 🙂

Have a happy day/lovely evening [choose as appropriate] everyone!

Love,

Val
