About Me

My name is Amy Wallin and I love to read and I hate to write. I graduated from the Queensland large wineUniversity of Technology with a degree in Creative and Professional Writing and Public Relations. Now I can relate to the public, and write with or without grammar. Other things I learnt in university:

  • One of my professors does not like cats or children
  • Another likes ABBA
  • The Coles sign should say: ‘8 items or fewer’, not ‘8 items or less’
  • Pyjamas is a Persian word. Mattress is Arabic
  • How to use ‘whom’.
  • Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and sometimes Freud is a hypocritical nitwit.

After university I learnt:

  • One cannot just get a job because they can write slightly better than the average man on the street.
  • ‘Jobs in Arts’ is an oxymoron (especially with the 2014 Budget)
  • You cannot get any other job without experience.
  • You cannot get experience without first having a job.
  • You need to be able to operate heavy machinery to become a gravedigger

I decided in early 2014 that I would start a blog and because I am such an insomniac, I named it: it’s only three. I occasionally write reviews and about events in my life. Mostly I write about things that cross my mind and hope that a passer-by feels some connection and validates my thoughts. Anyway passer-by, thanks for stopping to read my blog. Stay, have a browse through the madness. Make yourself at home.

I comment back to everyone, or visit your blog. If I’m convinced after reading three of your posts – shall follow=)

    Holy cow! YOU might hate to write. But I must say, I love the way to wield the written word. And even though you don’t know me, or have any calibrating reference for me saying “I don’t say that every day.” Just trust my self-referencing narcissism this far. Maybe it’ll gain currency down the road 🙂

    Love the name of your blog, I am often awake myself at that time so I would have felt very guilty if I hadn’t followed your blog.

        That is just so darling, thank you! Give me one moment while I put my serious literary pants on. A sentence in it’s basic form is set up as subject-verb-object. When you are referring to the object is when you would use whom. For example: “whom do you love?” The basic sentence would be “Anastasia loves Peter” Peter being the object, and therefore the ‘whom’.
        There you go lit lesson and psychic reading in one comment!
