“Everything starts somewhere, though many physicists disagree. But people have always been dimly aware of the problem with the start of things. They wonder how the snowplough driver gets to work, or how the makers of dictionaries look up the spelling of words.”
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
Well, Here Goes Nothing
Ah well, it is always a challenge to actually put your thoughts into words don’t you find? And to top it off I’ve made it incredibly hard for myself by starting with a quote by the wonderful Terry Pratchett. How can you even begin to follow?
Well I guess a good place to start is with the fact that I’m LeighPouse and through this site I plan to do basically nothing and none of you shall read it. If you do happen to stumble upon the site and decide to read a bit, what’s wrong with you? I mean c’mon, look outside, there’s sex, drugs AND Rock N Roll to be had out there (or so I’m told).
The Awkward Second Album
So yeh… One of the things you need to know straight off the bat is that I am mentally ill, a label that carries with it a lot of stigma these days but don’t worry, I don’t bite (much).
I was diagnosed with Severe Depression, Acute Anxiety and Borderline Personality Disorder so long ago that I might as well have had them all my life. They’re something I deal with on a daily basis and they will probably come up quite a bit on this site so watch out for sensitive material.
I also started having random “blackouts” during my final year of university and still suffer with them to this day. The combination of mental illness and the inability to control my own consciousness caused me to leave university (but that’s a story for another day).
As a slightly less depressing aside, I also have dyslexia and dyspraxia so please forgive any untidiness. But this is the internet so… no then.
The Third Film
Now that the depressing stuff is dealt with I can tell you that I am a massive Nerd, always have been. This label also carries a stigma but one that I feel the sting has been taken out of in recent years.
Yes the other things you will see on this website is me raving about my favourite things in life. Whether it be Star Wars, Doctor Who, Video Games, Board Games or Music. I promise I’ll try my best to not make this site entirely all doom and gloom and keep up with the niceties also.
The Trilogy In Four Parts
So what can you expect from me? As much as I can help it, general posts will have the same sort of format and I’ll try to make it go as follows:
- Title – Song Name, Film Name, Something
- Quote – You can never have to many quotes I feel
- The Body – The actual post and what it’s about
- Bonus Video – Something from around YouTube that is either appropriate or pointless
So yeh, first post done! Wooh! See you all in about 4 months I expect.
I was listening to this while making this post, ❤ Dan Bull.
