Let’s deal with the aesthetics of the person behind the screen.
Firstly, I am a working class Brit. I also happen to be bisexual. The pièce de résistance is that I am a high functioning individual with bipolar and BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder). I’m also readjusting and reevaluating my relationship with gender. ¡Ole!
I’m a South-East Londoner with a quasi-English accent, my time trying to assimilate with the middle class at school went a skew, doubled up with a weak character as a late teen, it created a mess of vocals.
I guess you could say I am a pretty well balanced screw up.
A concoction of experiences, depressions and a manic episodes got me to where I am today. Like many, blogging seemed like a great idea for a long time, but that time got real long. After taking a right turn that ended up being the wrong move, I’m regrouping and filling a space that feels personal to me but also lacking in the general online environment.
At the same time, blogging is a byproduct, or you could say biproduct, of pursuing a career in freelance writing and content creation.
An International Relations graduate, I will return to higher education some time soon. However, in the meantime, I’m going to be reaching out to communities I have otherwise watched from a far and help those that need support.
I talk frankly about mental health and sexuality, I want to make a push towards creating some kind of education around race-politics in this country (read: teaching white people what race is, why reverse racism doesn’t exist and why even if they have a black friend, they are deeply racist) and ensure that intersectional feminism, and intersectionality in general, is brought to the forefront of discussions; be it regarding society, culture, politics etc.
I like pizza, dislike exercising and enjoy going red in the sun.
