Hello. My name is Connie. I want to talk.
I’m not going to lie, this is not my first blog. This is not the first time that I talk about my food adventures, my travels and things that generally amuse me. However, it will be the first time that I have talked since I lost my voice circa 2012.
I spent 4 years studying for a PhD in Art History and what glorious years they were. However, not having an academic background, learning to write and talk like an academic was a struggle. My words were too enthusiastic and full of too much excitement. I spent those 4 years suppressing my voice and now I need to find it again.
So this blog is a challenge for myself; learning to talk and write again, like I used to before academia kicked in. I am going to hunt down my voice and give it a punch in the face for leaving me. Well, maybe not quite a punch in the face but some strong words are definitely going to be had. No doubt there will be much gin and cheese consumed during the journey.
Thank you for reading.
