Dear diary...

I'm a twenty something graduate with a career. You'd think I have it all figured out right? Wrong. I don't think I'm in the right career, I live at home, I'm loveless and lifeless (thanks to that 'career' I've currently got) and I'm 100% completely and utterly clueless.

So what do I want? I want the cliché of course! I want a job I'm happy in, I want a home I adore and I want a man. And no, I'm not one of those girls who needs a man to function, I've done quite well by myself since my last failed relationship a few years back, but I want a family and all those picture perfect things you think of as you grow up. My ultimate goal (you know those shoot for the star kinda goals?) is to write. I'm about 20,000 words into writing my first book and, whilst it may not be the next Harry Potter, I'm pretty proud of it. But I think it will take more than one attempt at writing a book to get my dream so for now I'm going to focus on the other ones. 
Put me somewhere in publishing and I'll be happy; it's a shame I didn't realise this when I picked my degree and ended up going for something completely irrelevant! So that's where this comes in, my blog, my release. Maybe I'll be one of those lucky enough to hit the big time and become a well known blogger in my own right, maybe I won't, but it will give me the platform to start sharing my ideas, my ramblings, and anything else that comes to mind. I will be able to write anything and everything I want and, whilst it may get neglected from time to time (again with that career) it will give me a place to return to and share anything I want with anyone who wants to listen. Maybe I will develop my writing skills, maybe I will be able to use this to push myself into the publishing world, or maybe I will just be a hapless blogger sitting on her bed covered in one too many cushions and sharing ideas with an empty audience, and you know what, I don't mind which one I become!

I've started blogs before and they've always been for other people, me trying to be liked on a social platform where I could try and hide, and so they never sparked my interest, never kept me writing, I was creating work where it wasn't needed!

If you want to subscribe and listen to the ramblings of a twenty something trying to work out her way in life then join the party, I can't promise cake but I will promise to write what I really mean about things that are really happening!
