After spending ages thinking, "the house has to be totally finished before I show it to anyone", I've finally decided that life is too short. Our study isn't finished yet - I still don't have a chair, and we've not hung our posters and prints yet, but I've managed to make the shelves look rather lovely and I'm allowing myself a moment to feel accomplished, even if I've not actually completed the task at hand yet.
I've been busy building my online portfolio of writing and I'm far from finished with that either. I live and breathe the internet and I know that my dream job involves a magnificent melange of the written word and the interwebs, but I do sometimes wonder if the internet is just broadening the scope for self-loathing among 'milennials'. With every meaningful connection made comes dozens of hours spent looking at all of the talented people achieving enviable things all over the globe. In some distant past, each individual had a smaller world to conquer. I remember feeling like a big fish in a small pond, once upon a dream.
If you're interested in any of the things I've been writing, you could check out this article I wrote about the representation of periods in the media. It's got a kick-ass punderful headline too. You should also look at my BuzzFeed article in which I imagine the stereotypical high school teen movie as if it were set in the United Kingdom. In addition to this, I'm in the process of launching an exciting creative writing project for myself. More on this in time, my petals. That wasn't meant to sound quite as creepy as it did.
If it wasn't obvious already from the content of my blog, I am pretty sure that these details from my office space will give you some insight into my main interests - writing, photography and my own cat. There's something about this office space that is nostalgic for my study spaces at university, and I'm really excited that I'm going to be getting back into studying Hebrew very soon. Even though 'you learn something new every day' by osmosis, I still find it incredibly important to actively seek out knowledge.
I'll sign off for now - let me know if you enjoyed my articles! I hope you're having a good day, that your tea is still warm, and that you've got something you're looking forward to telling someone somewhere.
