Hi, call me E, The Enigmatic Blackbird.

I’m a twenty-something year old man from London, England.

When I finished university, I jumped on a plane and went abroad for months, returned home and did the same thing for a whole year. Now, I’m in the corporate world, but I don’t want that to stop my travelling habits.

To help with that, I rented this tiny virtual space journal my adventures, thoughts and things that entertain me. I hope that in this, I can learn a lot from others and maybe help another.

I do hope we can become friends (no matter where on the globe you are).

Why the name Enigmatic Blackbird?

For a long time when I was younger, I thought of myself as a paradox; a walking contradictions. I also thought that there were many things that were cryptic and puzzling about me and my surroundings. For a long time, my brothers and sisters called me weird. At first, I used to get annoyed that they called me weird, and would respond like “What is normal?” However, by the time I was sixteen, I accepted that I was a bit of a weirdo…heck, everyone was Normal, until you got to know them. So Enigmatic stuck, which is life itself, an enigmatic journey.

 

Why blackbird?

This (by Nina Simone):

I want to the blackbird that does fly, to many parts of the world, learning about different cultures and ways of life, and eat different food. I want to do this while keeping myself entertained along the way with good stories of TV series and films (and books made into films).
