Here goes. I’m not particularly ‘in’ to technology. Unlike many other girls in their late 20’s I’m not taking a hundred selfie photographs each day, I don’t have perfect hair (in fact, that is a whole other story for another day), and I’d rather be out enjoying the countryside than shopping.
No, I’m not a hermit. I don’t have three heads. I’m a bit chubby, but not unattractive (if I do say so myself). I just don’t understand the fascination with putting your whole life on the internet; social media has taken over our lives. As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve shied away from it. Perhaps I realised the importance of interactions with people face to face. That, or I didn’t want my whole life being documented on Facebook (et al) with each of my photos scrutinised by my peers.
Life isn’t perfect. But I wouldn’t want it to be. Its the quirky that makes it enjoyable.
So you’re probably thinking: why the hell has this girl started a blog then? Well, I’m not entirely sure either. I’m not trying to conform. In fact, I like the anonymity of a blog – not being linked to a Facebook page and showing my life how it truly is to strangers. Its quite liberating.
This is not going to be one of those you must eat smashed avocado, exercise 10 times a week and God forbid you should have a drop of alcohol lifestyle preaching blogs. I love pie. My favourite thing though is tea and toast. I could eat a whole loaf of bread in a couple of days.
So if you’re looking for an idealised, not-based-in-reality blog, you’re in the wrong place.
