Because I am such a diverse and sophisticated individual, the sort you could write a seven-season drama on the life of and release it to an audience of seven million viewers on HBO, I’ve decided to split the ‘about’ page into two separate ones; either that or I just wanted to have more than just one clickable page thingy in that menu on the side.
My name’s James, a second-year English student from London, studying at UCL, which is simultaneously ranked 5th best in the world for academic achievement, and 101st in the country for student satisfaction, which is quite fun. I’ve had type one diabetes since I was seven, my favourite pastime is writing – at the moment there’s this blog, a collab blog, a writing blog, about three on-and-off novels and a magazine on my plate – and my greatest fear is realising on my deathbed that I’ve done nothing with my life, so apologies in advance if half of these posts are me bitching about how painfully busy I am in an attempt to make this fear never come true.
I also swear a lot, both in real-life and this blog, but I sensor the c-word, and replaced the f-word with ‘frak’, largely to see if anyone gets the reference; but I try to offend you with my ideas and content, not the fancy lettering I use to present them.
And for the record, I hate how my middle name is plastered all over this blog, my Facebook profile, my NaNoWriMo page, and everything else I’m involved in; it started with my email address a few years ago and has stuck ever since. I promise I’m not that pretentious all the time. Hopefully
Cheers for giving me the time of day, and hope we don’t hate each other immediately,
