It’s been a while, sorry, acting work and life got in the way, hardly a helpful way to run a blog but I will endeavour to do better going forward. So as I start to re-group the blog I thought I’d define the categories that I’d already got and think about new ones. In the meantime a legend, or key if you will, to the topics found on my blog…
I googled this, I’ve happily called myself a geek for sometime, but suddenly thought as I was preparing to write this I wasn’t sure what the common definition was, so I googled it. Noun: an unfashionable or socially inept person. Well if you’ve read the bit above, the about me section I fit nicely into the unfashionable section, and if you’ve read my blog post Embarrassment free day then you’ll appreciate that I can be a tad socially inept at times. The verb: engage in or discuss computer-related tasks obsessively or with great attention to technical detail. Let’s gloss over that bit, I know how to update iTunes, what more does a girl need?
So, Geek, the Becky way, after changing a few words…
Becky. Geek: An unfashionable and occasionally socially inept lass, who is easily engaged in Star Wars related activities, including but not limited to, conversation, watching, blogging, reading and purchasing merchandise primarily designed for children.
Living my Dash
How I spend the time in between my birth date and what will be the day I depart this merry world. Cancer, a diagnosis of bi-polar and turning 40 led me to create a list of 40 different things that I would accomplish during my 40th year, and inspired by the poem Living my Dash by Linda Ellis I decided to take just a little bit more control of my life than I had been. Enter the list, which I will struggle to complete, largely because acting & producing work came along (yay!), but the whole point was to start living again, and that worked! And when I leave 40 and move into 41 I shall carry on with my list and keep adding to it 🙂
A few years ago I was diagnosed with bi-polar affective disorder type II, I’ve been pretty open about it from the beginning, I don’t doubt that my acting background helps that, and in this section of my blog you’ll find bits and bobs about my journey to hopefully encourage, educate and raise awareness. The more people that talk about mental health the better it will be. After all everyone has mental health, and we all need to know how best to look after ourselves.
Put T’Kettle On
Well everything else is in here… that is all 🙂
