I am really excited to have started blogging. I have become increasingly aware of the power that is social-media and having scrutinized it from the sideline for a while now, I saw myself come out at the other end about a month ago. It started off with Twitter… my first tweet: tweet tweet. Innocent. Then I signed up for Pinterest and it all went downhill from there. My ‘Pin It’ widget bookmark has become my best friend. Its me, my puppy and Pinterest tonight. And now this blog.
Its been about a week or two since my first entry and I have to tell you, its hard work mentally. All I can do is think about it. I have become that annoying person I used to find irritating, the one that brings every conversation back to blogging. I actually heard myself today on the phone to my friend – ‘Oh I’m sorry I can’t, I’m blogging’. And one of the most awkward moments of my student life: three weeks ago I mentioned my I ♥ BIOLOGY Pinterest board to a highly acclaimed Professor of Pharmacology at UCL. He didn’t share my enthusiasm and I vowed never to speak about it. Ever. That is until I came home.
This blog is in its early phase and I am sure that given time it will become more specific in its content. But at this point there is a lot I want to share with my peers and anyone else willing to listen to my rambling thoughts.
