Hello and welcome to my life! I hope you enjoy your visit – or at least get the ‘that was fun’ part you’d get after a ‘house of crazy mirrors’ visit, to go along with your confusion and tired eyes!
I write this blog as Audrey Grey, because I decided at some point long ago it was the name I would have given myself. I am otherwise known and self-proclaimed as ‘just me’. And this blog is mostly whatever happens inside little old ‘just me’.
I originally started this blog to stop boring my friends, family and my Facebook connections with the curious ponderings that occur inside my brain on a daily basis. I wasn’t very good at using it, and they have suffered (as has attention to this blog, 6 months between posts!). My New Life’s Resolution is to start directing myself here more often, and give the poor suffering crowd known as my Facebook Friends at least some modicum of choice about whether they read me or not – without having to hide me from their feed. It’s also a space I can exert my rambling essays on the world without specifically exerting them in the face of actual people who have better ways to spend their time! Use the categories and post-titles to find something worth your own, although I can’t guarantee I’ll stay on-topic the whole way through.
I don’t know if my theory section posts here have already been proven, disproven, are already common knowledge, or now only exist in the dregs of outdated and misinformed pop-sci/psych, or if they are somehow otherwise already irrelevant to the universe as a whole – but if you DO know, then I am open to all the information you wish to share with me. I like to formulate ideas and theories like most people formulate their grocery lists and the desire just to ask ‘what if?’ is incredibly appealing to me.
I have a heap of labels to define myself with covered elsewhere via this page, but I think ultimately, that I am more than the sum of my parts.
I hear ‘I didn’t think of that/it that way’ a LOT so perhaps I’ll say something that helps make sense of a topic to someone else. I think in concepts, big pictures.
As a word of warning if you haven’t already realised, I waffle (and write in British English). A lot. I refine my ideas, and consider new angles as the process goes along. I expand and apply the thoughts to other situations to see if it works. I am fiercely led by logic but I can apply emotion simultaneously, and usually do. I am rarely one or the other alone and work in gut feel and logical thought together – from what I want to eat to where I direct my life, and everything in between.
I believe a thought or premise is logical if it can be applied to a seemingly unconnected situation and work as a general rule just as well, so I do that a lot too. This kind of thinking is fun to me. I also work backwards from answer to question. I can’t show you working out until I know what the answer is.
This is my home for all things hypothetical. This is my working out.
