The subject matter of this blog you ask?… Any random thought has a chance of making it. I aim to be as unpredictable as possible.
The reason for this blog?… Simply to develop my skills in writing and to evolve my ideas. There’s no final goal in sight, I aim only to find enjoyment developing and sharing what I write.
A bit about me… I am opinionated without being stubborn. I welcome the chance to adapt my beliefs by considering what those around me have to say. Every person has value to add to those around them but often they are shut out due to others being hesitant of stepping out their comfort zones or due to some or other prejudices. Comfort to me is shallow. Change should be embraced in an ever-changing world and diversity should be encouraged in a world filled with unique individuals. Don’t be a follower, have confidence to do your own thing and have the chance to become a leader in it! But most of all, don’t let anyone tell you what you should think or feel or do, make your own damn mind up!
That turned into a bit of lecture. Sorry about that. But I suppose that sums me up. I like to give advice. Where I struggle is applying it to myself! But I am getting better and better as my beliefs become more and more compatible with the real me.
As for the nickname, Cheesy Deano… I wish I had a good story to tell! It started very randomly whilst on a summer camp. Waiting around (for what seemed a lifetime) between activities, the name was thrust upon me without any back-story. The inspiration was ‘Cheesy Beano’ which is beans mixed with beans… yummy! Even though it’s a pretty dire nickname, it’s catchy so I’ve adopted it for my blog. The best things in life happen randomly without any warning so I thought it fitting. I hope my Microsoft Paint effort at a logo suffices for the meantime. Graphic Design is something I hope to learn more about.
