A New Adventure…

So if you’re reading this I finally bit the bullet and finished setting up my Blog.  After buying my domain last October it’s safe to say that this has been a long time coming.

So first a little more about me and why this blog has come to be.  From an early age I always loved to read, although my love for video games almost always prevailed in the battle for my attention.  English was my forte throughout the entirety of my time in education and later led to me studying it at A level before boycotting the idea of further higher education altogether in pursuit of the working world.  My love for language and words stemmed from two preciously pivotal people in my life.  My wonderful mum Gill and my brilliantly intelligent late grandad Raymond.

In true Jon fashion at the age of 21 I decided to abandon my career and everything I had going on at the time in search of a new adventure (I don’t like to stagnate).  This time to try my hand at Musical Theatre.  I’d performed since my mid teens and knew that if I didn’t ever try, it would later manifest itself as a great regret in my life.

So here I am, 24 years old, partnered to the wonderful Daniel, living in London, finishing off my musical theatre degree and deciding to write a blog when I have a dissertation that needs doing (starting…oops).  Ambitious you say?  Nope, just stupid unfortunately!

So here you can expect weekly posts on whatever has sparked my creative juices!

Your thoughts and comments are most welcome and positively encouraged so send them my way!

I’m excited to share this new side of me with you all!
