My first post. The crippling fear that, in only a few words, I will humiliate myself and have no choice but to live alone among yaks in the far-flung mountains of Russia. Although I’ve always wanted a blog, the act of starting one is just as overwhelming as it is exhilarating. Please be kind to this trembling introvert; I’m still learning!
I suppose introductions are in order. My name is Julia, and I’m currently in high school. Whenever I’m not drowning in chemistry labs and book analyses, you can find me reading, writing, drawing, twirling around in pointe shoes, or sitting alone in my room watching Hugh Grant movies (I would call them a guilty pleasure, but I refuse to feel any guilt). My hobbies will be featured quite heavily on this blog as I review books and share my musings on the world.
I’d like to think I’m more than my name and laundry list of hobbies, though. I do (shock horror!) possess a personality and a myriad of conflicting traits. Even though I love to whinge about my massive stack of homework, I’m a fairly sunny person. I love my family and tiny circle of friends dearly, but also relish in the moments I have to myself. Some people might class me as the nerdy, head-in-a-book, wallflower type, which isn’t entirely inaccurate, but those who know me well know I can talk for hours. Being the quirky-and-relatable girl I am, (I hope you can tell when I’m joking otherwise I might have to meet the yaks sooner than I intended) I refuse to consider myself a true teenager. In actuality I’m a seven-year-old boy mixed with your dotty seventy-year-old granny that smells like butter-mints and old porridge.
As my blog progresses, I hope you’ll get to know me and vice versa. If you’re feeling lovely, leave a comment telling me about yourself or ask me any questions you fancy.
