My name is Ciretta and I am usually eating something. Having Italian in my blood means I have an emotional connection with food that cannot be easily replaced; I attempt to channel this unhealthy energy into writing. I’ve changed a lot over the years of The Very Hungry Cirettapillar, but one thing is for sure: I will always be very hungry. I’m going to stop milking that now.
After 2 years MIA, I hope to use my blog to write about my own thoughts and feelings, politics, injustice, veganism, the curiosities of people, the wonders of educational opportunity, love, freedom, happiness and more. My writing has happened sporadically (if that) around studying for my undergraduate degree in Education with Psychology and Counselling, my commitments as president of a socialist student society during my final year at university, various volunteering roles and a meaningless job that pays the bills – but reminds me of the millions of pointless positions created by capitalism that no one really benefits or gains satisfaction from beyond the 1% – as well as everyday stuff like trying to save the world.
I will be spending the next year or so studying for a Masters degree in Education, falling back in love with reading and writing and hopefully becoming an actual grown-up. From there… who knows? Your guess is as good as mine.
To be continued…
