I have a habit of going down a rabbit hole when it comes to surfing the web. 

I went from listening to the Sweeney Todd soundtrack, to Roman Polanski's rape trial and somehow ended up on Jezebel.com, a (feminist news and media website which highlights issues in new media).

As much as I love tech and blogging, I recently had a conversation with my lecturer wondering where I could go as a new media journalist and actually use all my skills and follow my interests. 

So often digital journalism relates to IT-related topics or tech watch. But why do I, someone who loves tech and gaming, not want to commit myself to writing about these?

MMORPG's often fail to fully impress me - they either seem to be the same worn-out story over and over again or they lack  any new innovations  which would set them apart from apart from other MMO's.

The Secret World, however, did impress me. It's very different from other MMORPG's I've played, but still has many of the benefits which come along with playing these games.

It arrived. The game I longer for. The game I had developed slightly sexual feelings for (jk...ok not). The game to complete the trilogy: Mass Effect 3. I finished it in four days.

Klout has decided that I am influential about beauty. It has also decided to lower my score by 29 in one day. Basically...Klout is both wrong and bitchy.
