About me

Introduction This is very much a novice blog, which I will be sorting out, making more public and also more'blog-like' in the near future! Well, I'm ginger and I write poetry. I'm 18; and a student. I do studenty things: I get pissed and I go clubbing and I sleep most of the weekend. I'm really boringly normal, I love my friends and family, shoes, Starbucks and Sex and the City. My poetry is about the world around me and the world inside me... so you might like it, you might not!
Interests They always say that poetry is only about sex and death, but I'd like to suggest that, at heart, its always about love. Maybe none of the things I write about are that original, but shouldn't poetry reach out, be about shared experience?
