Curiosity killed the cat but I imagine he died happy. New to this whole synchronicity thing.

Let’s fill this in then… My name’s Ben, 29 year old trans boy, I live in Cardiff, Wales in a terraced house with a glass front door. (Why, Mr landlord, why would you do that?) which means I can often be found running naked up the stairs after a shower, trying to hide my derriere.

I have varied interests, psychology, music, a degree in biochemistry, ex-stained glass artist, used to be a jeweller. Um what else… I have Ulcerative Colitis so I eat a lot of junk food and take a heck of a lot of medications and most of the time my head can’t be found in the same place as my body, it’s off elsewhere!

I’m very curious about the world, I’m interested in dreams, the unconscious, art, what makes people (including myself) tick. I haven’t found out yet.

I do like ladies, did I mention that?

I overthink everything. Am often depressed.

I like A LOT of different types of music. I enjoy playing the guitar and love playing the piano, well, I did until my dad sold mine. I thought I was a scientist but then out of nowhere came this need to be creative. I’m at my happiest when being creative, but I’m technically minded. And sometimes I get urges to… do maths, and science, and confuse myself.

I basically, don’t have a clue who I am. I’m a lost little sheep that gets distracted, follows things, ooohhh. Then something else comes along. Oohhh. Writing this, has been… agony.

I’m literally scrunching up my forehead. So confused.

  1. Hi there, you know I like your blog. πŸ™‚ I was wondering if you would be be so kind as to spare me a moment of your time over on my blog? I’m trying to do a poll on my blog asking people (anonymously) to vote as to whether or not they believe in past lives/reincarnation. I don’t have that many followers and most of them are proving very reluctant to click a button and make a choice. Would you be so kind as to visit my blog and see if you’d like to give your input? I don’t mind which way you vote, it makes no difference, and I won’t no what you voted anyway since I can’t see who does it, I can only see the number of votes. Here’s the link just in case you’d be willing: http://tfaswift.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/do-you-believe-1/ I’d really appreciate it. My name is Tilda by the way. πŸ™‚

  2. Hi there, it’s me. Have you changed your header image? Something seems different about your blog. It’s nice. Maybe I’m just imagining things, I don’t know. But something seems different and I’m guessing it’s that. Either way, it’s a very nice header image. Maybe I just didn’t notice it before …

  3. Yes πŸ™‚ When I first set up the blog I used an image off the internet I liked, but always had the intention of replacing it with something of my own, so I cobbled this together out of my own drawings and photos to make it more ‘me’.

  4. Hi artofstumbling, I approved your feedback to my last question, but then I read it more closely and unapproved it, just because it seems quite personal and I’m not sure if you want it to be on public view. I won’t go into detail here because I can’t remember if you moderate your feedback or not. I’m sorry, is all I’ll say. If you want to “talk” more privately, you can always contact me from my About Page, which comes to me as an email instead.

    • That’s very thoughtful of you. I was aware that it was going to be on public view and am fine with that. I’m quite used to ‘baring my soul’ so to speak, particularly in these past couple of months! But it’s good to know I can email you if necessary, so thanks πŸ™‚

  5. I love your blog name. It reminds me of son. When he was 3 or 4, he would be walking across the room and just trip and fall. He’d get up and we would laugh about it. Now he’s 13 and a 2nd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo. His forms are beautiful to watch, filled with power, focus, and precision. I still stumble at most of what do. Take care.

  6. Hello Rebecca! No idea if you’re into this kind of thing, but I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. If you want to partake just check out my blog. No worries if you prefer to not to; just thought I’d offer. πŸ™‚

    • I was just reading it. OMG at no.2!! Seriously. I can’t believe that one! How sweet of you to want to nominate me for a ‘Lobster award’… I agree lobster sounds so much better πŸ˜‰ I think I will give it a miss because I’m just not into that sort of thing. But I might do 11 facts just for fun… you know me πŸ™‚ But thank you for being so incredibly kind to think of me and my ramblings!

              • I’m sure you do know all of them! It’s just that every time you wink I assume it’s more secret lesbian-code. LOL Maybe you can make up a new thing with the word lobster … nipple clamps?

                • Ahh so just your dirty mind then! πŸ˜‰ I’ve been racking my brains here! Prawns… certainly, fishfingers, scampi. LMAO. No… I’m afraid I just like lobster. The frozen variety. From Lidl’s. Sorry to disappoint! πŸ™‚ Lobster / nipple clamps though… I’ll try and get that one into circulation for you! πŸ˜‰ Messaging my lesbian friends as we speak πŸ˜‰

  7. You’ve made a proper About page!! It’s very nice! Funny reading through my old comments up there … LOL.
    Anyhooz, ahem, I have nominated you for the Shine On Award, although you probably already have it since every other post seems to be an acceptance speech for some kind of Award! πŸ˜‰ But I don’t recall seeing this particular one (maybe I missed it) so here’s the link in case you’re interested. You know the drill! πŸ™‚ http://tfaswift.com/2013/03/05/nominees-for-shine-on-award/

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really like yours πŸ™‚ I look forward to being able to read more when I actually get to my computer (on my phone at the moment haha).
