So, the weird looking girl on the left is me. I know, my brows look like someone just brushed them with a toilet brush (I swear I’m trying, they just won’t cooperate).
My name is Clara – for those wondering, no, it’s not my real name. I’m 23 & I live in France. Why am I writing in English then you may ask. Well, I have no idea. I’m studying English at university and because I talk English all day-long, I kind of think in English at this point. It took me a million years to make a decision between writing in French or in English. I decided to write this and just « go with the flow », and as you can see, I started writing in English so I guess my decision’s made.
Then comes the time to tell you why I wanted to start a blog, and what will be on it. That is another really good question. I have been wanting to make Youtube videos for may years now, but never took the time to do it, and never had the guts to put my face ‘out there’. During self-isolation, because I have a lot of time on my hands, I decided that it would be good to start with something a little bit easier for me to do : writing. I always loved writing, no matter the subject. When I was young, I would even write pages of books I liked on paper, just to write something (ok, got me, I still do it).
So here we are, one of thousands of new blogs made today. Hope I’ll stick to it, but I’m very motivated.
Another good question would be « ok, we get it, you want to write about something, but about what exactly? » And I don’t really have an answer for you. Basically, I’m a student, so we’re going to talk a lot about student life in France etc. Then, I’m a vegetarian, so we’re gonna talk recipes as well. Then, I read loads of books, and love the trending « dark academia » aesthetic. You’re gonna have book recommandations, book reviews, and beautiful – I hope – dark academia style pictures to go with this. To go on with the dark academia stuff, I will be trying my best to make my closet and my apartment the perfect dark academia aesthetic so if you like that, I’ll probably take you with me during this process, maybe with some vlogs so I can finally start the Youtube channel I always dreamed of starting. Lastly (maybe), I will share with you my growing family of plants. Everything I do to keep them alive, to avoid or take care of bugs infestations, avoid over or under watering, everything I learned over the years, from the most basic plants to rare and hard to keep alive ones (Calatheas, you divas, Anthuriums, you morons).
I hope you’ll follow me on whatever adventures I post here and that you’ll enjoy my weird creative mind. Have a good day, take care of you and your families during these weird times. See you soon!
