Shit You Should Care About… This Blog.

Hello to everyone who has stumbled across this page,

Firstly, thank you for clicking the link that takes you here. I’m aware there are billions of links in this virtual world, so I’m appreciative that you ended up with us.

Secondly, if clicking on this blog wasn’t an accident then thank you very much for giving a shit about what you care about, I’m sure that’s a good sign for you and your future.

Thirdly, here’s a small list of things that I believe are relatively defining to the person I am, so you can get to know the most important third of the team running this thing we call a blog.

  1. My brain is as chaotic as my hair, both of which I can’t seem to get under control.

  2. I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing with my life, but I kind of love it.

  3. Fuck what they say about teen angst, I’ve found 20s angst so much harder.

  4. I love everything creative but for no known reason I chose to do a degree in Psychology and Media. These two subjects are completely unrelated and I don’t want to be a psychologist or a journalist, so it’s all a bit of a laugh.

  5. I’ve read more half-books and drunk more half-cups of tea than you could imagine, and that probably says more about me than anything else will.

As I’m sure you can tell, I have serious issues adminning my own life, let alone learning about the 6 billion other people that live on this weird sphere we call ‘The World’. But I’ve figured out that this sphere is so weird and so interesting, that I (and you) would be missing out on incredible things if we didn’t explore them in every way we can. So, I’m going to somehow get my shit together and take one for the team to find the most interesting dilemmas/life stories/endeavours out there, so you don’t have to find the shit you should care about yourself. 

Instead of being people that wank on about all the shit they are ‘going to do’, my gal pals and I have decided to ‘just do it’ (cheers Nike) and start something we can be proud of. Although the words I fear the most are ‘deadlines’ and ‘time management’, I’m gonna turn them on their heads by doing something I genuinely care about, and I can’t wait.

You’re gonna want to stay tuned because I’m confident that Lucy, my pre-life-crisis buddy’s worldliness and banter, Ruby, my neighbourly friend’s wonderful food knowledge, and my ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, will bring you a wonderful combination of shit you’ll genuinely/actually/definitely care about.

Goodbye for now my darlings,

Liv xox
