The birth of our friend the metropolitan hamster.

5 01 2011

Welcome friends of the Metropolitan Hamster to my inaugural post. It’s 2011, and I’ve decided it’s TTB (time to blog!). I’ve spent a long time considering what the subject of my blog might be, reading advice from fellow bloggers who strongly advise my content to be specific and ‘meeting someone’s needs’, however, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve decided (true to form) to ignore that advice, and write with freedom and honesty about my adventures.

The Oxford English Dictionary definition of adventure reads ‘an unusual and exciting or daring experience’. NB readers I will be using the common noun adventure loosely, as not all my stories will be of daring or unusual experiences, but how would we get through the routine of working life without the thought of an adventure every now and then? I hope, in some small way, my stories will bring a smile to your face or a feeling of solidarity in the obstacles we face in life (from raising awareness of world poverty to struggling onto the northern line during rush hour).  Also, you maybe wondering what on earth hamsters have to do with anything? But that’s for me to know (for now) and for you to find out…

For those of you that don’t know me, the metropolitan hamster is a 25 (soon to be 26 on the 6th March – I now expect and birthday message) year old girl from the home counties currently living in South East London with her boyfriend, asking herself very often: what the hell am I going to do with my life? Maybe this blog will help me figure it out…

Let the adventures begin.
