Regarding Blink

Some call me wise but those who know me better tend to avoid me. And at this moment in time I should be revising for an exam. Because I do history at university. But the Chartists can wait; they have been doing so for 200 years.

I'm 19 and my favourite novel is probably Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" (especially the last line - always read the last line first, except in Agatha Christie books). I love travelling and still like to write, even if I lack both talent and energy to do it properly.

I live in Birmingham/Oxford in the UK but I wish I lived in Middle-Earth (hence the photo - taken in Skye if you care).


history, Ernest Hemingway, international affairs, socialism, guitar playing, Aston Villa, Christopher Hitchens and whisky



Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
