I have been wanting to set up a blog for ages. I love writing but find it incredibly difficult. As a mathematics graduate, writing doesn’t afford me the satisfaction of a right or wrong answer that I used to experience deriving proofs.
And yet, as a PhD student studying music psychology, I find I have a lot of thoughts going through my head with every paper and book I read. Sometimes these thoughts relate directly to my PhD and I can attempt to express them in a paper for my studies. But more often than not, they relate to surrounding issues and sit there in my brain like a plant desperately craving water (like most of my plants at home).
So this blog is my attempt to contemplate what I am reading, out loud. To get it out of my head and onto paper, or at least pixels. If you, dear reader, find it interesting, all the better.
