2010 ‘about me’ things

Hello, this is me… (March 2010)

Like most blogs, my name is not in the title/URL/header of this page. But yes, I do write my own posts so I can be found as the author of this. I’m a girl, I like music, I like having freedom and independence, I learn from the past and try to live for the moment. (Live for the moment – basically code for ‘I don’t really know what I want to do in the future so I take every opportunity that comes my way. Pretty much. Well, if it’s not ridiculously expensive, doesn’t involve me risking my life in any way and doesn’t mean I have to forget about or lose any of my friends then we’re sweet.)

What else, what else, what else..? I like to think a lot. Hence why much of my blog might not make much sense to you – my thoughts often run away and play in fields of shoulder-high grass with each other. Yeah, exactly.

Passion-wise – music. Where would the world be without it? I play the violin…if I one day succeed in doing a piece of music justice then I might let you know. And also people. As lame a passion as that may sound, they fascinate me. I study psychology and this is one of my many options to pursue in ‘the future’. And probably the most likely…it’s the most realistic subject to study because all your evidence is right there before your eyes – around every street corner and in every corner of the world. Why why why why why? Always a good question that one.

And lastly, L-O-V-E. Yes, I can pronounce it thanks, unlike you Katy Perry (don’t get me wrong, she’s hot. And in that video – wow. It’s just a hot music video…from both a guys and a girls POV). I’m pretty certain I’ve found my special somebody so I’m not gonna get hung up on lurrrrve right now. But when/if the time comes or the issue arises you’ll see what I mean. *turns into emo child* Haha 🙂

So, if you don’t know what kinda person ‘me’ is yet, then stuff you. Na, just kidding. Enjoy reading my stuff, hopefully I don’t end up boring you. Laters yo 😀
