So far I have sought to include the following sections - and like many great artistes (delusions of grandeur I sense) it is a piece of work I will leave behine which most likely always will - remain unfinished.....
The Care System:
An account/collection of my experiences and thoughts growing up in the care system - a time in which the state took on the parental role.....
frank, stark, honest yet sometimes disturbing look at my (unconventional) family and relationships/friendships....
Training & Employment: Elements of my schooling/journey through the education system - through into college and eventually University. This section then charts my progression through the world of employment.....
Academia: The essays/studies/notes/work completed through my academic years. Primarily subject areas of - Psychology,
Sociology, Geography and Criminology.
The Probation Service:
Work completed within
the two years of training, largely
through NVQ and BA Hons in Community Justice. Further
works reflect periods of a Newly Qualified, Fully Qualified Probation Officer and life as a Senior Probation Officer. This will also reflect the changes
within the Service. (2003 onwards), including the 'Transforming Rehabilitation' shambles......'
reflection simply of a long term interest of mine. It
offers a comprehensive review and character assessments of a variety of horror
movies/icons from the 1970s onwards.....
have this fascination with space, with the universe and science - well perhaps more so Physics. Humanity has pondered for so long the very essence of our being - and in my lifestime we will not find any answers I am sure. The sense of wonder however remains.......
An old, yet personal interest of mine which
incorporates 1940s/50s/60s sci-fi, horror and crime radio shows. Bizarre I know - I just stumbled across these shows in childhood and have been hooked ever since......
: An area that reviews some of the best cult
movies of my era, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers....
This section encompasses my interest in dinosaurs as
a youngster....actually who am I kidding - I still love dinosaurs now.....in another life I would have been a Paleontologist I am sure....my dream job!
This area of the site is devoted primarily to
the mysterious, those unanswered questions I alluded to within the Existenz section perhaps - with this section perhaps fuelled by my devotion to the X-Files in the 1990s!
Childhood nostalgia, free animated GIFS and anything
else that doesn't fall into the other categories.
