  • I joined this as a bit of a dare and I’m still in two minds about it all to be honest. Part of me loves this voice of expression, so natural and free. The other part of me is judgmental about it all and how I will be perceived. I’m currently typing this on a gold iPhone wearing shoes full of golden spikes; one malfunction could decapitate a leg- these shoes mean business! Probably not the norm for someone on a website named Cowbird. But beneath this persona used to fit in with society is a drama free outdoorsy girl who loves nothing more than to be enjoying the simple life.

    So here we go: its either going to go one of two ways this whole story telling business! I have a feeling I will go down quicker than a led balloon and come across very socially awkward. Like the time I was stood underneath an outdoor heater and a bald man approached me and said "be careful with all that hair spray in your hair it’s bound to go up in smoke" and I instantly replied "is that what happened to you?" Turns out he was the doorman and didn't find me at all funny. I still see his judgmental eyes debating whether to let me back into that establishment on the few occasions I have returned to that part of town.

    So for now I shall embrace this cowbird and try my best to fit in with the nature of it all. Maybe I will learn to love it!
