Hey, so I guess I finally got my personal blog set up. I have to give a huge shout out to Namecheap for walking me through all the issues I had with figuring out how to get my SSL working. Turns out it was me being a dimwit and not pointing my DNS at my web hosting I have with them. Whoops…

So, anyway. My name is Shaun, 27 from the UK. I’m currently a full time carer for my Grandad and have been for the past 2 years. He suffers from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It’s tough at times to look after him but I do everything I can. Even if that means sleepless nights and stressful days. I just hope someone will return the favour to me one day if anything happens to me.
I mainly made this blog as a way for me to be able to vent things on my mind or even talk about my favourite shows and movies. I’d also like to improve my writing skills since they are quite poor but I do try. I have to say Grammarly has been a life saver since I came across it.

I chose the domain name Embrystar because I’m a huge Gears of War fan. The Embry Star is a medal awarded to those who have fought in the war alongside the COG and shown some form of heroic ability. I’m currently reading the books by Karen Traviss, I just finished book one; Aspho Fields and will be starting Jacinto’s Remnant soon. If you liked the Gears series even just for the story the books are worth checking out. Reasonably priced as well even if you want the paperback edition.

I guess that’s it. Follow me on Twitter if you like I’m often found lurking on there.
