This is my first time blogging; this is my first time really writing about myself (Facebook status updates aside!)

I’ve been trying to think of what to write about for my first blog; I thought potentially where I grew up (Swindon – highest teen pregnancy rate in Europe), or where I was born (Bridgend – highest teen suicide rate). But then maybe some random things that have happenend to me recently…

I am now officially friends on Facebook with the infamous James Bond look-a-like (who does look more like his Dad) who turns up at events. I somehow know his entire life story, his (daytime) occupation, his children, his children’s life stories, his marriage….people always seem to share life stories with me for some reason.

I was recently interviewed for Japanese television; a whole camera crew came rushing into the bar where my friends worked and asked my opinion on the Japanese Olympic team and what were the repercussions on Japan as a whole after their efforts. Naturally, I gave an extremely ‘informed’ opinion on the history of Japanese sport…

And finally, if anyone has managed to catch E4′s Work Experience, I was asked to potentially be in that; although they marketed it a little differently to me. I was told I would be put in my ‘dream’ job for a week and film my experience (obviously pre-Red 24 Management!). I actually never got round to sending everything off so now we will never know if a world of reality TV stardom awaited…

So first blog done; inpsiration for the second is on its way…
