Jake Gyllenhaal once said in an interview that he “really dislikes quizzes, overthinks things so can’t give people short answers, and legitimately panics when somebody asks him his favourite colour because there are too many“.
It was then that I realised that nobody will ever be as suited to me as Jake Gyllenhaal is and it’s just about the time I make my peace with that and move on in the world with my new-found lower expectations for everybody and everything.
In all honesty, I have no clue how to write about myself. When people ask to know something about me, I usually leave them standing there whilst an awkward silence envelops us and I make a distressed facial expression that probably makes them think I’m in some sort of pain (I am, as well – these interactions physically discomfort me). Though, if I were to say anything about myself, it would be that; tests (be it medical tests like blood tests or written exams) give me anxiety, my head is too noisy and my mind tends to spiral which often leads 30K word assignments regarding the analysis of Norman Bates’ relationship with woman (true story, I’m a former media production student), and I agree with Jake Gyllenhaal on the fact that there are too many colours to just choose one to stamp as your favourite and then just move on.
Due to my knack of overthinking and writing far too much, I’ve got aspirations to begin writing professionally, though I have no clue how I’m going to get there so I’m busy just kind of winging it at the moment. I read through books like it’s nobody’s business, I’m a huge fan of nature, wildlife, and animals, though I’m also an avid fan of technology, media, film production, photography, art (traditional and digital). I like learning and expanding my knowledge, even though I don’t think I’m good at a lot of things that I try to be and want to be, but I’m trying to figure it out as I go along.
This blog is going to be a complete mess of whatever I feel like posting – whether those things are going to be late night rants or badly written book reviews, we just don’t know yet. Like I said, I’m still trying to figure it out. But if you find any interest in any part of this blog, or any part of anything that I happen to post, then feel free to stick around and help figure this out with me. Have a look around. Go through my dirty laundry like a nosy neighbour on Animal Crossing, I don’t mind.
Thanks for reading because I’m really not all that interesting. You still don’t know many personal details about me, but maybe you will in time.
I’ll write you later.
