It took a while but I’m finally doing this.


I’m finally creating the blog I’ve wanted to create for years.  This is a creative portfolio for my writing, but also a chance to talk about things I’m very passionate about. It’s a personal blog but features my writing as a place to document it.

My mental health has stopped me being passionate for so long that I need somewhere to vent my thoughts. It’s a very new feeling, but one I like. I like having thoughts, opinions and the confidence to express them.

I’m new at this blog thing, like a complete beginner. It’ll take a while, but I’ll soon figure out what works for me. Until then, please bear with me. I’ll work it out eventually.

My name is Thomas Casey, or Tom. I’m 22 and a recent graduate from the University of Derby. I am an avid zero waste amateur, keen to help save the planet in whatever little way I can. I am an advocate of the LGBTQ+ community, being a member myself but also quite a political person. And I am a fierce feminist. I watch too much Grey’s Anatomy, and I’m an animal lover, especially rabbits and parrots, hence the name. But most of all, I’m attempting to regain control of my life in my mental health recovery the way I want, and this is a way to document that.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy what’s to come.
