I played in a punk/metal band and looking into making music again. Right, I know this is not the place to advertise for musicians but it's just so punk to shit where you eat! You feel me?
I would describe myself as a feminist, despite all the complications and the current unpopularity of the term. Judith Butler still rocks my world.
I am inclined to find smalltalk convivial. We don't have to be constantly talking about 'the deep stuff'. It is perfectly fine to take a moment for asessing the week's weather, or admire the many uses of gaffa tape. Yes, including the naughty ones *blush*.
I am also teaching at university now. Reading exam papers is the only part I don't like.
I have a blog, it's been well overdue for an update. Check it out, if you are so inclined. I spin yarns about patriarchy and racism: http://blog.soontobecollective.com/
My god I'm such a dork!
I find it very difficult to know exactly what I am thinking about in any given moment. I suppose I am usually fantasising about self-sufficiency. Like becoming a survivalist and getting away from the city, or perhaps living on a boat. Every now and then, totally unexpectedly I recall really embarrassing moments of my past, and possibly blush in public places without any apparent reason.
The dichotomy of whether I should be more reckless as the bell rings for the 'last orders' of my youth? Or should I roll my sleeves, sober up and get some work done. Lately I find myself inclining towards the latter.
