I like water. It’s my favourite drink, probably. I don’t know why I like it so much. It’s so plain. What does it even taste of? Nothing I can describe, anyway.

Mental health is often described as an elephant in the room although I’d beg to differ. Nowadays, it is a topic of public discourse, but do we really know what we are talking about? Within this series (“Understanding the Mind”), I aim to provide readers with an insight about what mental illness is.

As I write this, I’m not quite sure what this blog will be about or why I started it. After all, I do own another blog here on WordPress. No, you’re not knowing what it’s called. If you can guess, keep it to yourself.

So, hello WordPress! In this instant I have decided that, for the time being, this blog will be my eyes and ears; my test; my insight; my lab. What that quite means, I’m not sure. But I will be sharing a whole variety of posts with you all.

If you’d like me to share one of your posts, please send me the link to it.
