Hey guys! Welcome to my new blog! Whether you’ve been following this blog for a while, or know me in real life, hello! I’m happy that you’re here reading this.
I used to blog anonymously here as LyfWithEm, and in that time I’ve got to know so many of you lovely bunch, and I’m so grateful to those of you who continue to read my posts. Now I’ve decided to change that, so my friends and family can read this. I never wanted to blog without being anonymous before, because I wasn’t confident enough. I was afraid of what people would think. But over the last two years since I’ve been blogging, and with the help of some of you lovelies, I’ve grown in my confidence, and I’m so pleased that my friends will be reading this!
For those of you who don’t know anything about me, let me introduce myself. Not that there’s much to say. My name is Emily, I’m fifteen (sixteen on Monday!), and I live in St Albans, in England. I’m starting sixth form in September, provided exam results go to plan (Aghh – thirteen days!! – I swear my heart beats faster every time I think about it!). I think I want to study English Literature, Psychology and Geography, but honestly I’m wayyy too indecisive and my mind keeps changing.
Okayy, so what else can I tell you? I’m a total bookworm (I know, boringg, I’m sorry!!), and many of my posts will focus on this – I’m planning on doing lots of book reviews and book tags! I just finished reading ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’, by Lionel Shriver, a book recommended by our Psychology department, and I was absolutely blown away by her writing; I’ve never had such conflicting views at the end of a novel before. I’ll be posting a review on it very soon!
I also write a bit…sometimes (I’ve almost finished the first draft of a novel I’ve been working on but it’s utter trash…just looking at it makes me pretty much cry it’s that awful lol, there is no hope for it!)
Ok, what else. Um. I love horses, and I spend each Saturday at my stables. I’m also way too in love with my puppy. He’s a cockapoo (the best breed, in my opinion hehe), called Coco, and while being away in Cornwall, where I am at the moment, we’ve discovered that he LOVES the beach! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a happier dog than him racing around on the sand! Here, enjoy this gorgeous photo of him! I do apologise if you don’t find him as lovely as I do.
I’m not really sure what else to tell you, and it’s late, so I’ll finish this post off. Not being anonymous is weird. I keep having to re-read every sentence, debating over whether I really want to do this. I’m not sure I’m prepared to have people at school reading this. Oh well. Let’s do it anyway haha 😀
To those of my blogging friends, how are you all doing? I’m sorry it’s been so long, but I’m very excited to be back again! Please leave a link to one of your fav blog posts that you’ve written recently – I’d love to have a read!
Lots of love, Em x
