I’ve never known what to say when you introduce yourself in person, let alone over text but here goes. My name is Ella, my middle name is Strawberry.
Now as much as you might be thinking ‘she’s making that up to make her blog interesting’, wrong. My explanation for it is that my parents were hippies and thought why not make her a bit different like us. Considering my Dad wanted it to be my first name i’m glad my Ma put her foot down on that one.
I am 18 years old, the stage in life where everything seems so serious with making decisions to go to university or take an apprenticeship but basically sorting your life out so you feel like you know which directions you’re heading. I don’t know my direction.
So, I took a gap year. I didn’t accept any universities because when I got my results (wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for bearing in mind) I decided in that moment of terror, that I wanted to travel. So to my teacher who was a desperado to get me into uni I said i’m taking a gap year. Least to say there should have been ‘DISAPPOINTED’ written all over his face.
So to conclude, with an apology of my talent to blab, this is the start of my blog. I will talk about travelling, health, food (definitely food) and general things in life. If you’re willing to read it, I hope you enjoy.
