So during my shower I thought about how many posts ive done over the years and how on what basis my thoughts are based on, and also if there was things I’d forgotten. I know theres a lot I skipped out or just failed to mention. This blog’s been going since 2005 so to say “oh, trawl through my blog” to make a connection with new readers, it would be better to sum it up, so here goes!
My name is Jonathan Mark Robinson, I’ve just turned 29 and I’m a third year student at the university of Gloucestershire studying radio production BA hons. I dont like horses much as I am a little afraid. I also dont like it when my egg gets mixed with beans or tomato, I do like noodles though. My favourite colours are red and black
I have a girlfriend that has suffered me for 5 months now. I also have a daughter named Ruby from a previous relationship. I live in Cheltenham while im studying, and i have a huge interest in broadcast. In my home town of Swindon, I learnt a lot about the towns history and heritage to the point where if I’d gone any deeper I would be a history geek too.
I enjoyed music from a young age and wanted to follow my dads footsteps as a DJ. My dad left when inwas 9 but we still saw him regularly. My mum found someone else who was abusive towards me who eventually left. I moved back with my dad after that.
I went to Oakfield secondary school in walcot in swindon which I think is either a carpark or new houses now (I assume). I never showed up so they kicked me out in year 10. I went to another school organised by stratton education centre where I left with a poor gcse in maths. I went to a training centre and got a bunch of nvqs which was the equivalent to good gcses. On placement I went to a radio station, swindon fm where I learnt how to edit and do radio.
I took a break and went to yorkshire where I met a girl and we got engaged. She moved to swindon with me and we had a baby. I started voluntary work for a community radio station I helped form who promised me work. In xmas 2008 my girlfriend left me and took the baby during my radio show only to discover they wont be coming back when i got home, The job then fell through so I was given a choice. Go to college or get back with the ex and give up radio. I decided both but it wasnt good enough and after realising that it wasnt fair to stay with someone who I didn’t love anymore and it wouldnt be good for the baby, I chose college. I had a few relationships that didnt work out and met some people that stil mean bundles to me, but then met someone in college who although a lot of the time was fun, she turned out to be not so great… faking a pregnancy then a miscarriage.
Although I forgave that person, it really messed me up and added to trust issues especially with the bad stuff as a kid I decided to stay single. Career wise things were good, I passed my media production course with enough to get me into uni. I won a couple of awards for films and stuff which was good. My ex partner made things difficult for me to see my daughter and I got an order to see her, supported by my good friend hayley Since then nothings changed and I’m still having difficulty seeing ruby which isn’t down to any fault of my own.
At uni I’ve met some cool new people. I decided to get back into dating in February and not long after met someone new.
I suppose thats about it really. Things are a little more complicated than that but thats the general rundown.
Right… bed time!
