This is the blog of a once jaded, now jubilant girl trying to figure out life and all its little lemons. I’m a judicious soul to whom people often come to for advice that I freely spill onto them, yet I don’t feel I’m equipped to give advice, not the good stuff anyway. Friends are always telling me I’m full of life and energy but this is a huge contradiction to me because in my head I feel quite the opposite. I suppose this blog is for me, so I can ramble and get all my thoughts out. 

I’m also in the process of writing a book, a fiction novel that’s loosely based on my life and all the trials and tribulations I’ve experienced and overcome in my short 22 years of life. However it is only loosely based on me so I’m going to dramatise, dramatise, dramatise! I began this blog to test out my ideas on you lovely impartial humans and get some feedback so comment away. I read somewhere recently that this is one of the best things to do when beginning a novel. So along with some of my ramblings about this perplexing life I’ll be posting some very early snippets of my very first book. 

Peace,
