Hello you Backwords people,
I am Bernice, a 19 year old university student. The arts, for me, aren’t just an escape; they are where I live most of my life. If I am not reading or writing a story, I am watching a show or a film. I’ve accepted the permanent place of these things in my life. I’d rather commit myself to the arts, an uncertain field, than do something I am not as passionate about. I finish my degree in two years, and I am not sure where I will end up. However, I love writing and that’s good enough for now.
My love, obsession with books, television, art, music and films may seem backwards. Some may ask: what’s the point and value in reading a novel; what do you get out of watching a film or sitting through an entire season of a show; or what’s the worth of a painting? I have no answers for these people; I have only my personal prejudices. It may sound backwards, but hey, if enough people do what they love regardless of what others say than it isn’t backwards, it’s forwards. I intend to post every Monday and Thursday, as well as any other day I feel inspired to. I hope this blog will allow the unimpeded development of our addictions.;).
