I have been at this blogging thing now for 7 years and 3 months (eeek blimey) and I wrote my about page right at the very start. Back when this was a means of keeping myself accountable for the challenge I set myself of exercising every day for 365 days.
Back then I saw it as a challenge and a means of weight loss…
I wrote this about myself:
This is a page about me, I am many things including and impromptu artist, a photographer, an engineer and document writer, a Morris Dancer and an avid hat wearer!Ice_badger 2013
I called myself Ice_badger and was all about becoming fit enough to dance in a mask. I have changed some what since then, so I thought it was about time to update my about page.
My priorities have changes, my outlook has changed, my hair has changed (a lot) and above all, my name has changed. Well, it hasn’t changed in real life but I now call myself by my real name around here too.
So who am I now?
I am a person who exercises (a lot) because I love it. I write about it, because I love it, I also like writing and like to keep a record of how far I have come.
I am a person who is striving to break free from diet culture and accept my strong and capable body for what it can do no matter what size it ends up.
I am an aspiring Strongwoman. By which I mean one strong enough to compete in strongwoman competitions, I am already a strong woman.
I am a writer
I am a feminist
I am a person who stands up for other people’s rights as well as my own.
I am a photographer
I am an artist
I am a person who loves to dance, but doesn’t do so much of it these days.
I am the proud keeper of magic cloud hair.
I am still and engineer, and I still wear hats.
I am eccentric and slightly cantankerous id I haven’t had enough coffee.
I am no longer hiding behind a mask 🙂
Ok, actually, its 2020, masks are mandatory in a lot of places, but that is not the same as hiding!
