This is my first ever blog post and I know that this is going to be all levels of awkward for everyone involved in the process, the title is a bloody Lionel Ritchie song for god’s sake… So I guess this is an apology in advance in a hope that this relieves the pain a little and starts the healing process before it’s even over!
I suppose that I should start be introducing myself (get ready for that awkwardness guys!!). Hi, I’m Molly. I’m 23 years old and I live in Oxford. The picture above is me, looking awkward in my graduation robes (you’ll see a running theme of me looking awkward in situations here…). I recently graduated from Uni with a degree in History of Art and Fine Art and I feel that I’m at one of those weird crossroads moments in my life and being bombarded by those “So what’s next for you?” questions really don’t help with that feeling at all. But I suppose we all feel that after something so “milestone” and life consuming as Uni finishing and it’s only natural to feel absolutely terrified by this dark abyss lying before me.
I have always fancied writing a blog and this weird milestone moment in my life felt like the natural push I needed to actually try something new that I promised myself I would try out (a bit like that diet or to start going to the gym, pwhaha yeah that never happens). It will primarily consist of my weird ramblings surrounding art and fashion, the first being what my degree and my current job revolves around and the latter being something I’ve always had a passion for and always wanted to pursue (my bank account is not so keen on it…). I will post as regularly as I can and hopefully they will be interesting and not all completely as awkward and cringeworthy to read as this has been (I’m sure you don’t all want to read about my life like it’s a really bloody dull “This is your life” episode…).
Let me know what you all think or prefer for me to write about, I am open to feedback on what you guys like to see.
Phew, I suppose that wasn’t too bad, was it?? Answers on a postcard please…
