Who on earth is Dylan?

This is Dylan Brady’s online stream of thought. Containing anything that springs to mind. I’m 19 years old.  I’m Welsh and I have four brothers. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, I am unable to grow enough facial hair to be classified a beard. I’m a student apparently studying English Literature at Cardiff University. My favourite author F. Scott Fitzgerald once said “All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.” I can’t swim. I never have been able to. I probably never will. So I hope this quotation bears no truth. I’m Dylan Brady and I am about to change your life.

    Hey, this is just the best. Da iawn. You should copy that first blog post, revise it and put it on this ‘About’ page. I will plug you on Blewog today. 😀 xx

    Hi. I didn’t know where to contact you, until I came across this! I don’t recall how I came across your blog, but I did, and I really love it. Sorry, my name is Alexis,. I really love your posts, I find myself laughing so hard when I read them, you’ve an amazing sense of humor. Anyhow, I was wondering, do you have a tumblr.? I’d love to follow you there. Thank you for reading this!

      Thanks for finding the time for reading, glad that someone enjoys it! I’m currently not on Tumblr I’m afraid but I do occasionally ramble on Twitter (@BadlandsBrady). You’ll be the first one to find out if I do make the move to Tumblr though!

    hey dude my name’s James, and I’m from Fresno California (don’t know why exactly I feel the need to let you know where I’m at, but I thought it be polite). I came across your blog a couple of days ago and found it very interesting. I read this ‘about me’ section, and I thought it was really cool because, since I enjoy reading your posts, I thought you’d be the perfect person to ask. I’m 17 years old and about to start college in the fall. I’ve been considering an English Lit degree, and in fact I always thought I’d do an English degree when I went to college. Now, I’m not so sure. Not because I don’t love it, I do, but I find myself often wondering, “what sort of career opportunities exist with an english degree, especially in this day and age when anyone can just go on the Internet and use a shabby website to Google ‘the catcher in the rye’ and what not…” I know everyone’s reason for doing… anything is different but since you’re one of the only people I’ve seen go through with a degree in English I just thought I’d ask…. how do you see yourself putting your degree at work? or a more philosophical question would be, where do you see yourself in five years? Post Grad school maybe (I’ve considered it but, again, English Lit….ehhh….)? Hey thanks if you’ve read this entire message/comment it really means a lot. Also, sorry if it was annoying. I know it’s a bit much to ask of someone you’ve never met.

      Hey James! It’s a difficult one to call. English Literature is an incredible subject. There is so much richness and depth that we can barely scratch the surface in a three year course. It may lack the job opportunities that a scientific subject might give but I don’t think that should put you off. It’s flexibility and breadth mean it could open up all sorts of doors for you. I myself would like to go into a journalism career following my time at university. We’ll see how that goes! If you truly enjoy it, I’d say go for it. Hope this advice helps (and don’t sue me if you’re homeless in 10 years time!) All the best.

    Hey thanks Mr. Brady! I’ll be honest, didn’t think you’d reply at all. But seriously thanks. I appreciate it.

    Hello Dylan! I found your blog after a quick Google search of the phrase “the cauldron of thought.’ Arctic Monkeys fan? I honestly thought it was such an obscure song that no one had taken my brilliant idea to use that specific line as a blog name. Anyway, thanks for not being a tumblr kid! After 5 years (!!) of wanting to start my own blog, I’m finally coming around to actually doing it. I do notice you haven’t updated in years, however, I hope you’re still writing in some other platform because I laughed quite hard with some of your posts (the ‘Movies That Should Be Made’ [paraphrasing the entry title]) posts were particularly enjoyable. If you’re reading, thanks for reading.
    Good luck on all your future endeavors and goodbye from Los Angeles,

    Alejandra

      I haven’t been on this blog for many a year but it brings a smile to my face when I find that people have been reading it. Still a huge Arctic Monkeys fan. Went to see them for the 5th time last year. I’m still doing a bit of writing too. I’m on twitter (@dylanfbrady) and am still using the Cauldron of Thought line in my bio! Hope you enjoy writing your own blog
      Dylan
