Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved to write. From crappy love songs when I was 8 to poetry that I thought would change the world when I was 13, there has been no better way to hide myself away from the world than with a pen and paper.
Recently I’ve had to start to think seriously about what I want to do with my life, as I have to apply for university in just a matter of months. There was never really any question about what I want to do, as no career seemed more perfect to me than journalism; of course I only ever saw the rose-tinted-spectacles view of it- the interviews with Hollywood celebrities, parties every night and the hustle and bustle of life in London or New York- basically a scene from The Devil Wears Prada.
Now, at 17 years old with hopefully a little more sense, I thought a blog would be a great place to start. I’ve tried this twice before, hence the name of the post, but this time I am hoping (possibly in vain) that I will actually be able to keep at it and not slack on posting like I have previously.
To try and ensure this, I have decided that setting a regular post day was the best way to go. So at the moment the plan is to blog every Sunday talking about my week and just anything I want to write about (this could go completely wrong but we’ll see). Then at some other point of every week I will try and post on either Rhythm and Views or Paper Views, which are based on music and book reviews respectively.
As I write this it is the first beautiful sunny day of the year, which is something to treasure in England. While the weather and my consequential sense of optimism are both likely to be short-lived, I figure this is a good place to start and I’m excited to start blogging again.
See you soon for my first proper post,
