Autumn is Coming!

Now, forgive me if this is a little premature but I'm excited and I wanted to let it be known. Tomorrow, 1st September, marks the start of the best time of the year - Autumn - and I wanted to pump everyone up to say goodbye to the British 'summer'.

"Go to university" they said...

"You'll get a better job" they said...

Look at that face. That's the face of a girl whose years of hard work has resulted in a First Class Degree and an award for 'Best Overall Student'. That's the face of a girl ready to take on the real world and start making her dreams a reality. That's the face of a girl excited for what the future has to hold.

(Really though, that's the face of a girl that's just relieved that she's managed to walk in 5inch heels across a stage and shake some random blokes hand. SUCCESS!)

My Gap Year


You may or may not be aware, but last year I went travelling (or as it's more commonly known - I had a "gap yah"). It was fantastic. I still get major blues. I'm always dreaming about my next adventure. It's certainly the best thing I've ever done, and I could not recommend it enough. If you have the opportunity to go, do it! Even if it means going alone. I went on my tod, and look how it turned out!

This is weird isn't it.. How's best for someone to start a blog? I'm not sure there's a recommended way, so I'll just dive straight in.
Firstly, thanks for dropping by. You've either been directed this way or you're another Darby Shade looking to see how many others there are in the world (I've found 3 so far - so much for originality!).
