So this is me…
Bit of a change in life. Or a mid-life crisis? I’ll probably be the last to know! 🙂
Dyslexic and a diagnosis at 42. Always knew something wasn’t ‘quite right’ but was told “You should be more confident” and other cliches. Of course, if you are reading this and have dyslexia yourself, the nonsense spoken by others will be familiar.
For me, it isn’t about reading. I always read well and I’m told I could read at about four, before school spoilt it for me. I’m one of the generation that had ITA inflicted on them. More about that and how the developers of the Initial Teaching Alphabet should be rounded up and shot in another blog. Sometime.
Currently transitioning from a work world of technology into something a little more writing based and creative. I’m being a bit cagey about past work as:
- I don’t want people bothering me about tech
- A change is as good as a rest
- I have quite enough things to keep me occupied, thanks all the same!
Offers of tens of thousands of pounds welcome in a few months when I’ve had a bit of a break and got my vim back. That involves a bit of walking and I’m currently managing 10 miles every fortnight with a pal. Great fun and a chance to unwind after overdoing it for too long.
