The Beginning

Hello! My name is Kate, I’m an 18-year-old from Birmingham in the UK. I don’t have the most interesting life and I’m yet to go on a real life changing adventure that I believe to be worth writing about. However, I’ve been thinking about blogging for a long time and have always wanted to commit more deeply to social media than just the front that I present on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. In late September I embarked unwillingly onto a gap year due to unforeseen circumstances (maybe more on that later) and have been living in the working world since (maybe more on that later too). The idea of my gap year being to work a few days a week and then do the odd weekend or few days away in a foreign country, the only problem being that I’m too scared to go alone! So, my major thinking behind this blog is to make myself be a little more adventurous, to step out of my comfort zone and push beyond the limit. Yet, I don’t want this blog to be all about me. There are so many people in my life (and not yet in it) that I admire and love who are a daily source of inspiration to me, I want to share these people with you and show you a little sneak peek into their lives (with permission of course!). I’m really not great at photography so I know they say ‘A picture is worth 1000 words’ but if it comes down to it, expect the extra 1000 words. I’ve got an iPhone 6 and a messy house so do with that what you will. However, I would love to work with photographers to create collaborative blog posts so drop me a message if you're interested!

Here’s what to expect from me in the next few weeks; this Friday I’m headed for Copenhagen with my sister to do a bit of sightseeing and adventuring which I’m really excited about! There will definitely be a blog post on that. After that I’m off to Devon for a weekend to enjoy the countryside in winter – personally I’m expecting frozen toes and snow clogged walks – but you can expect scenic views and some antics. That’s all I’ve got stored up for now so after that it’s really just where the world takes me!

  5. Very encouraging and touching first blog post. I remember my first one, it had a been a little similar to your one actually. I've deleted now ,though because I believed it was rubbish. Not that I'm saying yours is rubbish-it's far from it and your life doesn't seem boring at all. "Sometimes you just have to discover how even an ordinary life can be extraordinary."-Patrick Ness.
