About the Blog
The name My Calamity Physics comes from one of my favourite novels of all time – Special Topics in Calamity Physics (go buy a copy IMMEDIATELY!).
Ah I see, you say, but what exactly is this Calamity Physics of which you speak?
Well the theory is that Calamity Physics was just the author’s really pretty way of saying Chaos Theory. For anyone not too familiar with the term, it’s basically “the underlying notion of small occurrences significantly affecting the outcomes of seemingly unrelated events”.
And considering the chaotic nature of my general life and how teeny tiny things have a tendency to send bigger portions into tailspins, I figured it was the perfect title for a blog about me.
This blog will document my life – the good, the bad and the ugly – and I solemnly swear to be as honest as possible.
It will be the place that reminds me to be fun and embrace my youth, in an attempt to stamp out the 24-going-on-40-year-old I was becoming.
I even abandoned my usually sensibilities and created a rather ridiculous background of me making an eejit out of myself to remind me not to take myself too seriously (just in case you thought I was horribly egotistical!).
It’s the start of a new era for Miss C and you guys have front row seats.
