I'm the one in the centre

Let's talk about education baby, let's talk about 1, 2, 3, let's talk aboout stress. I don't want to pigeonhole myself by predicting the topics I will be covering too much, although the topic I know most about is the effect online group learning has on educational improvements, in comparison to face-to-face group learning. That was basically the topic for my thesis to complete my Master of Science degree in Psychology (Massey University).

I have very broad and deep interest in science, in particular astrophysics, astronomy, and probably psychology I guess. Art also has a large role in my life as a pastime. I like to make timelapse videos of the night sky and nature. I put them on Youtube and Vimeo, with other photos on Instagram. I'm not sure how this turned into a dating profile.

I use voice recognition software to type as I am a tetraplegic, since I broke my neck (C5 vertebrae) in a snowboarding accident in Canada in 2009. I paid for this trip after winning multiple thousands in an online poker tournament in my final year completing BSc in Psychology (University of Otago). Anyway I told you this as my voice recognition often throws out random words without my detection, so let me know in the comments or just laugh at the mustard on my face you SOB.

Now that I have an opinion I think it is worth sharing, I am a fully qualified blogger. However I will try to base these opinions on scientific research where possible. Also if any of you, the blogees, disagree with what I have said let me know in the comments and I’ll be more than happy to look at deleting your comment. JK. Obviously by having a love of science, it is only natural that I encourage sceptical enquiry, so if what I’m saying I say sounds like BS, I would be stoked if that lead to a blogee researching some of this stuff themselves. Don’t take my word for it, I’m just some dude on the Internet.
