Hi. My name is Meirav and I’m a blogger. I started blogging in 2007 on the soon-to-be-extinct Multiply but later decided to set up home here. My penguin’s name is Quentin. He has been with me virtually since I started blogging.
I blog to let off steam, to express feelings and opinions, to think aloud, to share stuff I’ve learned or even stuff I’m learning about life – all sorts of different reasons. I tried using categories to show which is which, but have given up on that as I was forever needing to invent new ones… I’m just not very good at organising stuff, neither when it comes to the papers on my desk nor when it comes to my blog posts. :)
The subjects I write about vary, but some topics that are very likely to come up are: human nature, communication, relationships; words and languages; creative writing; faith; blogging and social networking; time management.
A bit about me: I’m an Israeli, married to an Englishman and currently living in England. I’m Jewish, and I believe in Jesus. I’ve lived on this planet since 1962. I’m bilingual – grew up speaking both Hebrew and English. I write. I’m a night owl.
I have strong procrastination tendencies, but am working on that. I am annoyingly pedantic, and tend to take words very literally. I love reading, especially novels. I like chocolate. I’m an introvert, which means I need lots of solitude and stillness. I have a strong aversion to order and structure. I have a strong tendency to think and to question things and poke holes in stuff I hear or read, especially when it’s presented as seven neat steps to solving all your problems, and even more so if it’s presented as a pretty poster or Powerpoint presentation with fluffy bunnies and pretty flowers and soothing music to lull you into a state of willingness to absorb whatever you’re told.
Welcome to my blog. It’s never boring.
