Welcome to my blog. My name is Cal aka Dithreabhach.
UPDATE 25 October 2019. I had to withdraw fro my OU course in December 2018 due to ill-health. I’m restarting the degree course this October. Keep your fingers crossed!
UPDATE 29 October 2018 – I’ve enrolled on an Open Degree with the Open University! A mixture of excitement and terror! I couldn’t go to uni when I was younger due being my father’s carer (and latterly my mother’s).

Did I mention that I am a Geek?
Hoping to set up small press/Zine distro.
Psychogeographer/Drifter – out-&-out misfit in a world of conformity! Dreamer, radical, tilter at windmills.
I’m Bipolar 2, OCD, a Self-harmer, Heart Attack Survivor, Two Smashed Knees, Cripple Punk, but still fighting this corrupt and murderous system.
This will also be, from 1 January 2019, my site for my writing and photography project ‘1-52’. The project consists of my producing a piece of writing (poetry or prose) each week. Also a photograph each
day week will be uploaded. Each piece of writing will be on a theme picked at random from my humongous list of prompts. The photos will also be on a random theme from another list. Each prompt on the lists are numbered and I’ll be asking Facebook friends to pick a number each day and I’ll use the corresponding prompt on the lists. The project was inspired mainly by Marie Lightman’s Prompt Response.
I’m also going to be using the blog as a record of my journeys through life – political journey, mental/physical health journey, and my journey to re-educate myself.
