“Why did I ever start this?” ...my first words ever in my first blog ever, and I’ve nicked them from Jennifer Worth’s bestseller “Call the Midwife.” It is a good place to begin, though.
I’m sixteen years old and I live in Ireland. My life mainly consists of writing, reading, studying, baking and wondering why there isn’t more wild stuff to fill this sentence with.
I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember. I went through the various inevitable phases of popstar (ridiculous), actress (perhaps plausible?), archaeologist (still a bit plausible) and even, for a brief period, astronaut (horrific idea), but writing has always been something I wanted to do.
A blog, now, that’s a relatively new idea. For only about a year have I considered it, and it’s only now I’ve plucked up the courage and the get-up-and-go to begin. It’s down to looking at my friends who aren’t afraid to be passionate about things and share their passion with others. I figured, why shouldn’t I?
So welcome to my blog for 2013! (I know it’s March already... that probably says more about me than I’d like).
It’s intended for teenagers—because I am one and have no idea what adults think about (nor do I particularly want to find out just yet). My intention is to pick a new issue about being a teen every couple of weeks and write several entries about it (e.g. confidence and self esteem, bullying, school, food, music)... lots of things I think I know about and many about which I’ll freely admit to having no clue. If anyone has suggestions about what they’d like to see, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let me know if I’m doing a great job or a terrible one, or—hopefully—hovering somewhere in between.
Here goes nothing!
