“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
― Dr. Seuss
As a child there was nothing I enjoyed more than pestering my mother into reading just one more book. These books nearly always consisted of a Dr Seuss story, my favourites being “Are you my mother?” (written by P.D Eastman a protege of Dr Seuss) “Wacky Wednesday” and “One fish two fish red fish blue fish”.
The point in telling you all this is, while I love to read and Dr Seuss has a lot to do with that, I have also found that such a significant part of my childhood has become an inspirational guide. Whether I need a laugh or a serious dose of courage I can always find what I need in his words. So this morning I opened my laptop, Googled some quotes and began writing.
This is my very first blog and I am not ashamed to say the idea of writing this has been quite daunting. That is until now… I have realised that while this is a very new experience it can only be positive. What other way can you show the world… or you small amount of readers (who may or may not be required to read) exactly what is going on inside your mind. A blog is the perfect way to publish your inner monologue without being the crazy lady rambling in the street to all that pass her by.
With that being said I suppose ill introduce myself now; my name is Kirsty-Ann, but you may call me Kirsty. I am in my first year of University, studying a Bachelor of communications and media studies and a Bachelor of international studies. I come from down the coast, a beautiful area called Jervis Bay, I have recently moved to a place in West Wollongong- a shared house with three roommates, all very different from myself- another learning experience. I recently turned 18, my favourite colour is green, my hair is brown, I have freckles on my eyes, I am learning French, I love a good chat (as I am sure you have discovered), love to read, laugh and eat. I’m sure there is much more to me than a few superficial details but if you continue to read in the coming weeks I assure you, you will know me well.
As for my disclosure for this week, so far I love the University of Wollongong; I have met some great new people, the atmospheres great and let’s not forget the learning experiences.
This blog will be used as my way of expression, sometimes I will talk seriously about current and important topics that I feel passionately about and sometimes I will talk about myself and the happenings around me. So stay tuned!
